 Musselburgh is a fairly sharp, right-handed course situated around seven miles from the centre of Edinburgh. It is approximately a mile-and-a-quarter in circumference with a chute which accommodates 5f races. Low numbers are usually an advantage in races over 7f and 1m but hi

gh numbers are best over 5f unless the ground is very soft. It can often pay to race up with the pace in shorter races as trailers are often forced wide off the final turn.
There has been racing at Musselburgh since 1816 but it is only since the 1990s that the course took the name of the town in which it was situated. It was known as Edinburgh previously. The nearest station is Edinburgh Waverley and a free bus service is available on racedays. The track is within easy reach of the northern end of the A1 and well signposted.

The Edinburgh Cup and Scottish Sprint Cup, a £100,000 5f handicap, are the tracks biggest races of the year and run in June. Both normally attract big fields.
Leading Yorkshire trainers Richard Fahey and Mark Johnston both do well, the latter’s three-year-olds enjoying a particularly good strike-rate. Julie Camacho and Philip Kirby’s older horses have also been in the money over the last few years.


Jump racing is a fairly recent innovation and the course is still building up its profile. The nearest station is Edinburgh Waverley and a free bus service is available on racedays. The track is within easy reach of the northern end of the A1 and well signposted.

Donald McCain and Lucinda Russell’s runners over fences are the ones to follow, though take careful note of anything sent up from Wales by Evan Williams. The John Smith’s Scottish Champion Hurdle, run in February, is Musselburgh’s most valuable national hunt race of the season but it has been a bit of a graveyard for favourites down the years. One trend stands out, however – it is normally won by something with winning form over at least 1m2f on the Flat.
