Race 1 – Ayr Racecourse
THE PLAYER QUEEN won on debut in the bumper ranks back in April and now makes her comeback/hurdle/yard bow. She toppled a well-backed favourite that day and should swap into these ranks without much grief. MAURA JEANNE is the danger off the back of a 2nd in the bumpers back in June and could unlock plenty over hurdles.
Top Tip – THE PLAYER QUEEN (5)
One to consider – MAURA JEANNE (7)
Race 2 – Ayr Racecourse
SAUCE OF LIFE won both his bouts in the bumpers and has an exciting hat trick prospect now going hurdling. GENTLEMAN DE MAI was 2nd to a strong rival between the flags and is fancied to make a splash on rules debut.
Top Tip – SAUCE OF LIFE (9)
One to consider – GENTLEMAN DE MAI (5)
Race 3 – Ayr Racecourse
ANIMORE is showing strong improvement for the shift to chasing, landing in the frame twice before opening the account convincingly on 3rd attempt. He is up 5lb for that effort but looks capable of weathering it and improving further. BOLLINGERANDKRUG has won 2 of his last 3 hurdle runs and makes fair appeal now trying the chase ranks.
Top Tip – ANIMORE (5)
One to consider – BOLLINGERANDKRUG (4)
Race 4 – Ayr Racecourse
I’M ON SNAP finished strongly in 4th at Hereford latest and has a 1lb drop in her favour. She probably also needed the run so we could see a big step forward today. PERMISSION GRANTED showed signs of improvement in 3rd at Perth on 2nd start since wind surgery and could find a way into the equation.
Top Tip – I’M ON SNAP (6)
One to consider – PERMISSION GRANTED (10)
Race 5 – Ayr Racecourse
GREY ATLANTIC WAY is up 8lb for a dominant win on return to fences after being fitted with the tongue-tie and cheekpieces combination. A similar effort is likely and he has plenty of scope in these ranks. EAGLE RIDGE is worth considering on his best form last season and this 10 year old still has plenty of ability.
Top Tip – GREY ATLANTIC WAY (4)
One to consider – EAGLE RIDGE (3)
Race 6 – Ayr Racecourse
FLOOD DEFENCE should be in top shape for a win bid after some flat spins of late. Last seen 2nd by a neck in this sphere she’s up 4lb but should be able to make a convincing attempt at compensation. GET PHAR is interesting making UK/yard debut after some solid placed efforts in these ranks across the Irish Sea.
Top Tip – FLOOD DEFENCE (4)
One to consider – GET PHAR (2)
Race 7 – Ayr Racecourse
THE BRAVEST looks good on handicap debut, set to benefit from an up in trip and the juvenile allowance. STEINKRAUS went down by a neck latest at Carlisle and cannot be discounted despite the 5lb hike.
Top Tip – THE BRAVEST (8)
One to consider – STEINKRAUS (1)
Race 8 – Ayr Racecourse
FATHERS ADVICE did strong late work on debut when striking the crossbar over C&D back in May. He should prove sharper for the effort and can go one better. ROSE OF SIENA gets a mention on rules debut, she has G1 winning relations over hurdles and the booking of Brian Hughes catches the eye.
Top Tip – FATHERS ADVICE (6)
One to consider – ROSE OF SIENA (13)
