1
1211-12OR: 100C
16/1

Veteran; his recent form figures make for grim reading (PPFPU). However, this is an easier option than the one he tackled on his seasonal reappearance at Newcastle (first start since wind surgery); most probably needs further than 2m.

811-11OR: 99CD
5/1

Infrequent winner; ran well from 10lb out of the handicap on his penultimate start (Carlisle 2m4f, heavy) but disappointing when dropped in trip at Hexham since; fully effective here (form figures of his last three Ayr starts read 122).

1211-4OR: 92D
8/1

Veteran; a three-time winner for previous handler Sophie Leach in early 2017; 50/1 when finishing a tailed-off last of five at Hexham (2m, Class 3 Novices') latest; look elsewhere.

710-13OR: 87CD
8/11

Twice a winner at Ayr previously (Flat and over fences), and he would've almost certainly made that three but for a heavy fall at the second last over C&D last week; assuming that he's back fighting fit should prove tough to beat.

1010-8OR: 82C
4/1

Stablemate of The Orange Rogue; handicapped to have a say based upon his peak form but turned in another fairly laboured effort at Newcastle on Saturday (2m4f); ideally needs to get his fencing in order.

1110-0OR: 62
66/1

38-race maiden (0-13 over fences); can't be considered in any shape or form from so far out of the handicap; no chance whatsoever barring multiple mishaps.

Betting

Forecast

Las Tunas (8/11), Titian Boy (4/1), Instingtive (5/1), Paddocks Lounge (8/1), The Orange Rogue (16/1), Bertielicious (66/1)

Verdict

LAS TUNAS tends to save his better efforts for Ayr and he looked set to score but for a heavy fall at the second last fence here last week. Assuming that he is fully recovered from that most unfortunate setback, he should hold all of the aces with the infrequent winner Instingtive the safest (but not cast-iron) shout for the forecast.
