Richard Fahey guide to his Ayr Gold Cup team

Last Updated September 21 2017, 18:22Racing

Having walked the course on Thursday I know it’s very testing at Ayr. My fingers are firmly crossed Friday’s card survives the inspection as I have six in the William Hill Ayr Bronze Cup.

Grandad's World has been running better of late and looks to be back in top form. He’s very well at home and six furlongs here on soft ground will be absolutely ideal for him. I think he’s going to run a big race and I’d love him to win for his owner.

Boundsy’s best form is at definitely at Chester but he won’t mind the ground which is a plus. He’s entitled to take his chance and we’ll see how he gets on.

Khelman will love the track and the ground here. He has good and bad days. On the latter he’s very bad – on a good one he’d have a small chance.

Paddy Power is a law unto himself. He has loads of ability but just won’t show it on the track. Even I’ve lost faith in him now – and was among the last to crack. He has the talent to win this – but I’ve no idea if he’s going to fancy it.

Royal Connoisseur stays seven furlongs which is a plus – you are going to need stamina to get home out there. He’ll be getting back at them late and is another who will like the ground.

Tatlisu won’t mind it either. He’s a well handicapped horse now and I thought he ran okay when second at Wolverhampton last time. He won a Silver Cup earlier in his career and while he’s getting older he could still be in the shake-up.
