Lightening to misfire in big field; SPREAD BETTING.

Lightening Rod 3.10 Musselburgh Sell at 1 in a match bet with Ultimate Lightening Rod's lack of experience in bigfield chases could count against him in this 14-runner 2m handicap and he might struggle to beat Ultimate by more than a length.

This will be the first time Lightening Rod has raced in a field of more than ten runners over fences and the likely strong pace could put his suspect jumping - he fell at Sedgefield on his chase debut last season and unseated last time at Catterick - under serious pressure.

Although Ultimate will also be racing in a sizeable field over fences for the first time, he is a regular participant in big-field handicap hurdles and has yet to fall or unseat in a jumps race.

Ultimate is ideally suited by flat, righthanded courses and has finished in the first three on his two previous course outings.

3.10 Musselburgh Sporting (50:30:20:10) 16-19 Lightening Rod, 12-15 Ultimate, 10-13 Gracchus, Woody Waller, 8-11 Indian Groom, 7-9 Santa's Son, 6-8 Quito Du Tresor, Kosta Brava, 5-7 De Boitron, Tara Royal, 3-5 Wind Shuffle, Safari Adventures, 2-4 Silk Drum, Carrietau.
