Musselburgh Tips on Sunday 5th February
Race 1 - Scottish Triumph Hurdle Tips

Harry Cobden's first ride of what could be a very successful day at Musselburgh is AFADIL, who ran out an impressive winner on his hurdles debut for Paul Nicholls.
A winner on his third and final start on the flat in France, Afadil tanked through the race at Taunton and was still hard on the bridle as he crossed the line. Nicholls' charge would need to jump a little better in this stronger contest, but he should have come on plenty for that first outing on British soil.
Race 2 - Scottish Champion Handicap Chase Tips

I'd give another chance to DREAMS OF HOME, who suffered defeat on his last outing at Sandown. Donald McCain's charge went into that ITV handicap on the back of two hard-fought victories at Perth and Kelso, but struggled a little against his southern rivals, crossing the line fourth as Xcitations ran out an impressive winner.
Dreams Of Home is unbeaten north of the border, having won nicely at Ayr last season and Brian Hughes mount is still running off what looks to be a workable mark.

Toothless is the odds-on favourite to win this two-mile event. Given his course form, I'd rather back GENERAL OFFICER, who won twice over this course-and-distance earlier in the season.
Donald McCain's charge then tried to carry a double-penalty to victory over two-and-a-half miles at Catterick and jumped the last in the lead, only to get run down on heavy ground by a rival he was giving a stone to at the weights. Dropping back in trip will definitely suit and he could claim a third course victory of the season.
