17:05 Ayr Mon 29 July 2019
Hasn't won on turf since 2014 but last few runs have been fair enough including an improved effort when finishing third at Musselburgh last time out. Worth consideration.
Not as consistent as he once was but second over 6f just last week (won race on stands side) one of several solid efforts in 2019 and no reason he can't again be competitive here.
Not the most consistent and despite slipping down the handicap has not looked like recapturing the form he showed last season. Has run well at this track in the past so not totally out of it.
Started to show improved form around this time last season but recent form has not been anything special. One who will appreciate any rain in the Ayr region but hard to get excited about.
Seemed to be going the right way before disappointing last time out over course and distance. Capable of winning a race of this type and fairly handicapped but others make for appeal.
Now one from 28 and unplaced in all 2019 starts. Has some ability and capable of springing a surprise but others have better credentials.
Has struggled to beat a rival in last six starts and his best days are clearly behind him.
A mare with a decent strike-rate for the grade (5-53), yet she can't possibly be recommended on the basis of her form throughout the course of 2018 and 2019; look elsewhere.
16-race maiden with regressive form; very difficult to make a viable case for running out of the handicap.
Very difficult to make a case for under any conditions. Racing from 9lb out of the handicap makes that even harder.
Never threatened at all last season and his fourth of five in a seller on his reappearance is probably as good as he is nowadays. Best to look elsewhere.
