17:00 Ayr Mon 8 July 2019
Won at this course two starts back over 1m. He didn't run badly last time on a step down to this trip here when fourth of 11, beaten by just 1¾l. Gone up 2lb but he has won off this mark before. One to consider.
Won twice on the AW earlier this year but has been unable to replicate that form on turf. Was eighth of 11 last time at this course over 7f. Going back up in trip, down 3lb and cheekpieces on for the first time. Others preferred.
Won at Redcar over 6f last August but has been unable to add to that in her three starts since then. Showed some promise last time when sixth of 15 at Thirsk (6f), beaten 3½l. Down 2lb. One to watch.
Is looking for his first win since July 2017 but went really close to ending that wait at Musselburgh (7f) back in May when he was second of 11, beaten by a neck. Gone down 1lb since last run. Cheekpieces on for first time. One for shortlist.
Has some good form on the AW earlier in the year, including a success at Chelmsford over 7f. Was 12th of 15 on her return to turf last time at Hamilton (6f). Needs to do much better on this surface. Others preferred.
Broke her maiden on the AW at Newcastle (7f) last September. Was unable to follow it up in three starts since then, including an outing on turf at Leicester (7f) where she was third of 11. May be capable of more than this mark. Each-way claims.
Lightly raced filly who is still a maiden after five races. Has been well beaten on her two handicap starts over 6f, with her latest effort coming at Carlisle when seventh of 17. Up in trip today. Others more appealing.
Has had nine attempts to break her maiden so far but has gone close on two occasions this season. She was second of 16 two starts back at this track over 6f. Ground was too slow for her last time at Carlisle. Each-way claims.
Still a maiden after seven races but was fancied to get off the mark last time at Beverley when fourth of 14 over the extended 7f trip. She found trouble late on last time otherwise it could have been better. Remains off the same mark. Big chance.
Has yet to hit the frame in eight attempts so far in his career. Did produce one of his best runs yet last time at this track when fifth of 12 after going off at 40/1. Needs to improve further if he is to be in the mix today.
0-10 in his career but proved he is capable of being competitive when fourth here over 1m last time out. His best form has come at Ayr so this is a course he enjoys. Is down 3lb now. One to watch.
Showed some promise last year on the AW at Newcastle when third of nine over 6f. Has been a long way down the field this season though, including when eighth of 12 last time at Hamilton (1m½f). Difficult to make a case for.
