This is a class five race but a poor one Ask Dad has been known to lead but this is its first run in England so I'm not sure how good it is, Jinky is my second top rated and is the only other one that's been known to lead but top spot goes to BARNEY MCGREW 8/1 who can be held up or track the leaders and its best time came from a race at Newcastle and if its capable of repeating that time could win here but I'm not completely confident if it can repeat it so any stake has to be kept very low.
3:05 Ayr - With twelve runners and Lover Man has been known to lead but I'm not sure it likes firm going so if it is then it maybe wont lead or be able to lead, LEXINGTON PLACE 5/1 could lead if nothing else wanted to so it could just lead here and would then have a decent chance as its my second top rated of either staying in front the whole way or at least make the frame, the top rated is CRUISE TOTHELIMIT 14/1 but its not shown its best this year yet but it is capable if in the mood and could be worth a small each way bet and if it made the frame it could cover the bet on the other horse so it has to be the way to go.
6:40 Beverley - Only eight runners and two known front runners in Bronze Beau who may prefer a flatter course, the third top rated is Tom Sawyer who is the other maybe front runner and is my third top rated but it seems to do one good time a year but maybe not here, second spot goes to Tweety Pie who is well weighted so probably capable of making the frame but top spot goes to NOODLES BLUE BOY 8/1 who usually likes to track the leaders and then stay on strongly at the finish and it had been running quite well until upped to a class four race last time out where it ran poorly and is quickly dropped back in grade and this time has got Paul Hannigan on board who has won three from sixteen rides with the stables older horses so it points to them expecting a good run here.
7:50 Windsor - Thirteen runners in a class four race, there's three known possible front runners, Strategic Force who is naught from seven on turf, Whaleweigh Station who may need further and Deeds Not Words who will probably do best of the pace makers, I've got Iseemist as my third top rated and I've got him marked down as the sort who is capable of repeating its best time, second top is DON'T HAVE IT THEN 20/1 who is only one spot off top place and another who I think will be able to repeat its best time and has to be given as an each way bet but my top rated is SLIP SLIDING AWAY 8/1 but I'm not completely sure if this one is capable of a repeat best time but if its done it once it can always be done again but I'm going with backing both to show a profit whichever one does the business.
