Whillans bids for Friday win

Alexandrakollontai bids for her first course win in the EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Fillies' Handicap at Musselburgh on Friday night.

Hawatif is a live contender for Mark Johnston

Trained at Hawick by Alistair Whillans, she takes on four rivals in the £15,000 7f contest as she attempts to add to her tally of ten career victories.

Whillans said: "When we first got her we thought she needed soft ground but she won back in the spring at Leicester on good to firm.

"You can't come from too far back at Musselburgh, and that's her style of running, but with only five runners and good prize money it's worth taking a chance."

Among the opposition to Alexandrakollontai is Keith Dalgleish-trained Invoke, a two-time course and distance scorer who made all for an impressive success in this race 12 months ago.

Mark Johnston's Hawatif is another live contender. The Kingsley House raider won back-to-back handicap in July at York and Glorious Goodwood.
