City can claim his compensation in a Flash at Musselburgh

FLASH CITY enjoyed no luck at all on his most recent outing but compensation awaits in the racinguk.com/anywhere, 3 Devices, 1 Price Handicap at Musselburgh.

The six-year-old's bare form figures hardly inspire confidence with just one win in 36 starts to date but it could easily have been two victories had everything not gone horribly wrong at Haydock earlier this month.

He reared up as the stalls opened, conceding valuable ground which just could not be made up in the five-furlong test, but was only beaten three-quarters of a length in third at the line.

The handicapper clearly took a similar view in putting Flash City up by 2lb but that still leaves him on an attractive mark of 67.

Geanie Mac has hit the bar a couple of times recently but can gain a deserved success in the Download The Racing UK iPad App Handicap, while Strobe ran well on the level here last month and after a chase start, he is worth watching in the Download New Racing UK iPad App Handicap.

Second at Perth over fences, he is proving an admirable dual-purpose performer for Lucy Normile.

Bizzario boasts a nice pedigree as a half-brother to the 
likes of Gan Amhras and should make a winning start to his career ini the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.

Jacob Black can make light work of his initial mark of 76 in the Join Rewards4Racing Handicap at Carlisle.

Gotcha should be given another chance in the EBF Breeders Backing Racing Swift Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

Lyric Street can follow up a recent Hexham success in the Exterion Media Novices' Hurdle at Bangor while Long Wave is the choice in the Ladbrokes Novices' Handicap Chase.
