2:15pm Musselburgh Betway Hogmaneigh Handicap Hurdle (Class 2) 2m


I’m not usually one to back juveniles in handicaps, but Keith Dalgleish’s filly isn’t your usual four-year-old. Chica Buena has been on the go for four months, winning all three of her starts since moving to Dalgleish’s yard from Ireland at the end of October.

On her second start for the yard, Chica Buena held off subsequent two-time winner, Golden Jeffery on her handicap debut here at Musselburgh. Brian Hughes then guided his young mount to a tremendous triumph in a Listed Juvenile Hurdle at Aintree, where the 4/1 shot powered clear of some capable rivals and secured a 23 length victory without over-extending herself.

A 13-pound rise in the weights followed and she will have to prove herself once again. Yet, Chica Buena is surely the best-handicapped horse in the race, she will like the good ground and has winning form over course-and-distance.
