3yo maiden whose form has dipped since being gelded (consistent previously); well handicapped on best efforts but doesn't look poised to open his account.

Form & Verdict

Losing spell goes back to his C&D success (off 16lb higher) two years ago but returns to Ayr looking attractively handicapped; interesting with Hamilton reappearance under his belt.

Got up close home to beat Highwaygrey at Carlisle (1m1f, good to soft) last month on third start for new yard; likely to remain competitive, having gained his other win (in 2021) off 3lb higher.

His only win came back in July 2021; promising return to action at Nottingham three weeks ago when narrowly beaten into fourth (second has won easily since); each-way claims off the same mark.

Seven-time course winner, most recently off 3lb higher last August; far from consistent since but the 9yo has a fighting chance provided he runs to form; placed over C&D in April.

Raced only four times; 1m win last October; dam's side suggests she should stay 1m2f; failed to get home over this trip on reappearance but may improve with the outing under her belt.

Dam won over 1m6f for the yard and tonight's stiffer test could help now handicapping; easy to pick holes in her Brighton win, when allowed her own way at a steady pace, but it's likely there's more to come.

Five-time course scorer; comfortably held in much better races the last twice and should benefit from the return to Class 6; has a respectable strike-rate (8-24) in this grade.

Best effort in 1m maidens when second here (good) in April; pedigree suggests he's worth a crack at this longer distance; may be capable of progress now handicapping and back at Ayr.

Half-brother to very useful Irish middle-distance performer Sky Seven but fluffed the start and never got competitive when 100-1 for recent debut at Newcastle (1m; finished about 13l behind Old Cock).

4yo maiden who looks well treated on bits of form; trailed home last of seven at Hamilton (1m3f) on stable/seasonal debut, however, and needs to leave that effort well behind.
