5 yo Gelding

OR: 77

Form & Verdict

Won this spring on first two starts for current yard (1m, AW) and was an unlucky third at Leicester (1m, good) 11 days ago, when badly hampered 1f out; has the same mark today and may well make amends; effective on good to soft ground when trained in France.

4 yo Colt

OR: 78

Form & Verdict

3-3 this year following wins at Musselburgh (1m/7f, good to soft/good) and one here (7f, good); clearly thriving and has to be respected under a 5lb penalty for last Tuesday's all-the-way victory; has won here on heavy.

OR: 69

Form & Verdict

9yo whose form went the wrong way last season after his C&D win last June; however, he's dropped down the weights and reappeared with a fair fourth of six at Pontefract three weeks ago; three visits to Ayr have yielded two wins and he could build on that latest form now back here.

Form & Verdict

Not at his best when back on turf in the Spring Mile at Doncaster in March but didn't run badly in that warm race and he was in good form on AW previously; might not be far away now back down in grade.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced Irish challenger who won on debut last December (7f, AW) and is one to watch in the betting; however, she hasn't really threatened on her three handicap starts and needs something extra this afternoon.

Debut winner on the AW but well held in two handicaps since then and didn't look at home on heavy ground when making turf debut.

J: Robert Whearty

T: Thomas Gibney

Surprise but decisive winner of a Dundalk maiden on debut in December; unable to make good on the immediate step into handicap company there in February; plenty of ability and her best days are in front of her but inexperience and the ground may foil her here.

4 yo Colt

OR: 75

Form & Verdict

4yo who has been gelded since his last run last October and runs off a mark 1lb lower than when winning at Newmarket (1m, good) in June; ran well first time up last season and is capable of having a say.

Form & Verdict

10yo who finished last at Hamilton recently when back from a 53-day break; however, perhaps the good to soft ground didn't suit and he won on AW as recently as January; could bounce back if conditions are suitable.

Trais Fluors

9st 9lb

J: Tommie Jakes

T: Linda Perratt

Veteran; ex-Jack Channon; last win was on Tapeta for this yard at Newcastle in March (1m); just as effective on turf but most of his wins have come on good/good to firm (won on good to soft in France); others more persuasive.

Eight-time course winner; ran just twice last season, when runner-up at Musselburgh in April and down the field over this C&D in September; now an 11yo and he's possibly best watched on his return to action.
