- Book Christmas Parties At Ayr Racecourse Novice Stakes (Class 5)
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Regularly placed (including on soft); beaten less than 1L by Aberama Gold in a Class 2 nursery here (6f, good) three weeks ago; will take plenty of beating on that basis alone unless the market speaks strongly for Innings.
15,000gns foal; easy to back when finishing last of four to Spirit Of The Sky (beaten 8L) on debut at Nottingham (5f, heavy) last week; could fare better.
Intello colt; ninth foal from a useful dam (the Fillies' Mile winner Red Bloom); brother to the 7f-1m winner Masked Identity; in excellent hands and should be followed if proving strong in the market exchanges.
Showed only a modicum of improvement on her fourth start (6f, Hamilton); is unlikely to be competitive on all known form; stablemate of Kiara Spirit.
Half-sister to the 7f winner Benny The Bear; 33-1 when fifth of six on debut at Musselburgh (7f, good to soft); this race is considered to be another step in her overall development; look elsewhere.
Hasn't beaten a single rival in four career starts (5f-1m); newly cheek-pieced stablemate of Garnock Valley; simply can't be the solution.
