2023 Silver Arrow Handicap Betting Odds at Musselburgh racecourse

Saturday, 08 April 2023

Adeb has been in good form for trainer Richard Fahey and the four-year-old appears to be well-weighted for this showdown over seven furlongs. This is a Class 2 race where Autumn Festival arrives at Musselburgh having enjoyed a succession of wins and it’s hard to discount his chances. The David O’Meara-trained runner is followed by The Gatekeeper in the betting.

Bling On The Music goes for trainer Ed Walker and there are some older horses, with Gweedore being a six-year-old with more experience than his younger counterparts, while Abduction and Spirit Of Light next in the pecking order. This certainly looks like a good each-way betting race and it’s worth going in search of extra places.

2023 Musselburgh Silver Arrow Handicap Tips

Adeb is a four-year-old with a potentially bright future and Richard Fahey will be hoping that the horse kicks on from a fine performance on the all-weather at Newcastle Racecourse. In the middle of February, the horse claimed the spoils when triumphing over seven furlongs and this came after finishing second in an Apprentice Handicap over six furlongs.

However, Autumn Festival is the runner that really catches the eye in the Musselburgh Silver Arrow Handicap. The four-year-old is vastly experienced and there was a solid win at Musselburgh Racecourse back in October when the horse was able to claim a one length victory. That came after winning the Old Gravel Pit Lodges Handicap, with that coming after a double at Chepstow.

Charlie Johnston has lots of runners competing in the Royal Mile Handicap and will also hope to score in the Musselburgh Silver Arrow Handicap, with The Gatekeeper among the betting favourites and there was a decent showing at Doncaster last time out. It was a competitive Pertemps Network Spring Mile Handicap where the 14/1 shot was able to perform well.

A win in early March at the all-weather track at Newcastle means that there’s plenty to like about this runner from an each-way perspective. Oisin Murphy will be on board Bling On The Music and the horse was last seen winning at Leicester Racecourse, with more to potentially come from a runner who could benefit from wind surgery.
