Musselburgh Tip: Rapid Applause

Once rated 110 and is on the march again from a mark of 82 for his new trainer. Clocked fastest closing sectional by 0.67s last time out.

Rapid Applause hasn’t been with Michael Easterby long and although he is rated 82 with a penalty this is a horse who peaked at 110. There is still plenty of headroom in the mark if his new trainer has got him anywhere near back to his best.

At Beverley the 6-year-old overcame trouble in running to come from the rear and win with the fastest closing sectional by 0.67s. He earned an adjusted speed rating of 81 for his win and there is likely more to come.
