Having made the frame in seven of her ten career runs to date it is surely only a matter of time before Yukon Mission finally visits the winners' enclosure, especially as she was denied a clear run when third at Pontefract last time out. That said, she had been beaten fairly on a number of occasions on the all-weather and this looks a tough race for her to finally get her nose in front so I fear another place is the best she can hope for.
Reely Bonnie was a somewhat surprise winner at Ayr last time out, running on well to win by a couple of lengths to defy odds of 25/1. She won't go off at that sort of price here, however a step up in class and a 6lbs rise in the weights will make it tough to follow up.
Richard Fahey tends to do well with his runners here at Musselburgh (19% win strike rate & level stakes profit +£40.45 in the last three years) and I think that his runner Grace And Virtue has what it takes to get her head back in front here. She was a game winner at Pontefract on penultimate run and although was no match for an Amy Murphy runner last time out she ran on well for second, finishing ahead of a number of rivals rated 70+.
