It’s all about a fast start in the World Pool Scottish Sprint Cup and that is why the draw could make all the difference on Saturday, with this five-furlong encounter boasting a maximum of seventeen runners and that means each-way punters can look to get at least four places and perhaps even more when it comes to this race.

We know that some big-priced runners are going to feature in the frame, with Makanah and Silky Wilkie among the leading contenders, while Paul Midgley has a couple of interesting runners in the form of The Bell Conductor and Burning Cash. It’s going to be all about working out the price movements ahead of the off to see where the money is going.

2023 Scottish Sprint Cup Tips

Some of the runners in the World Pool Scottish Sprint Cup have not competed for several months, with this including Came From The Dark and Catch Cunningham. The former has been away from the track for over 100 days and the seven-year-old finished fifth at Southwell last time out, with the runner experiencing a bump at the start.

As for Catch Cunningham, this horse has run in esteemed company and there was a sixth-placed finish at York Racecourse in early October, with this coming after a second-placed finish at Ripon in September, while there was previously a win at the Knavesmire when landing a 16/1 success when obliging by a neck.

Makanah returns to Musselburgh after previously landing a victory at the Scottish track and Julie Camacho will feel as though her horse has a live chance of success. Sent off as the 5/4 favourite last time out, there was a victory by a nose to touch off Lullaby Bay and that came after a sixth-placed finish at Doncaster when competing in the Coral Portland Handicap.

Silky Wilkie has been competing regularly since the season began again, with the four-year-old a little disappointing in his last race at Wolverhampton. Previously to this, there was a triumph on the all-weather at Kempton and it’s worth noting how regularly the horse has been finishing in the frame of his recent races.
