4 To Comply with: Razing The Gold Bar

Four To Follow: Razing The Gold Bar

As we close to the top of the flat season, we’re beginning to work out the very best of the very best. However that’s placed on maintain for the second, as we head as much as Ayrshire for an additional large dash handicap value its weight in Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Ayr Gold Cup takes centre stage and I’ve picked out three over the border plus one within the Mill Reef to make in the present day’s 4 To Comply with.



Not Leaping Simply But

2:25 – Ayr Silver Cup H’cap – Leap The Gun @ 8/1 (Betfred)

Leap The Gun returns to this race 10lbs decrease than final time. He hasn’t had essentially the most stellar of seasons, tumbling down the weights till a improbable run final day trip in a handicap at Doncaster. He’s again as much as a category two handicap and shouldn’t’ discover it too tough from stall 12. Final yr he was denied a transparent run, however break and a little bit of luck will assist him and William Pyle.

One other horse low down within the weights who catches the attention is Aplomb for Eve Johnson Houghton. Very calmly raced this season, and returns to the Silver Cup seven kilos decrease than final yr’s effort in sixth. A close to miss final day trip at Goodwood has him in good type, and has a pleasant each-way value on him at 11/1 (Betfred)

And what’s a giant Ayr dash handicap with a couple of Jim Goldie runners. The Renfrewshire coach saddles three right here, however I like Be Proud at a giant value. His greatest efforts coming over the six furlongs, so excuse his run within the Racing League, and he’s on softer floor in the present day. Mark Winn might have solely had one win within the final two weeks, however he takes a vital three kilos off right here and has an opportunity at 28/1 (William Hill)


Speaking ‘Bout My Era

3:00 – Firth Of Clyde Stakes (Group Three) – Nice Era @ 5/1 (William Hill)

This race doesn’t actually produce future basic winners, however it may well produce some pretty respectable sort fillies. She’s unbeaten and received with a lot in hand final day trip at Chester. She’s by Holy Roman Emperor and can just like the minimize within the floor in the present day, as she has on her earlier two runs. She poses a major hazard to the favourites and I’m profiting from that.

3:35 – Ayr Gold Cup (Heritage H’cap) – Orazio @ 15/2 (Betfred)

The massive one is headed by Orazio, who hasn’t turned up within the large sprints. Each runs within the Wokingham and the Steward’s Cup had been disappointing to say the least. However he’s again on sounder floor right here for the Ayr Gold Cup. and has been stored recent by Charlie Hills, which is a giant plus in my books. He’s drawn proper close to the rail in stall 23, and all these positives imply I simply can’t look previous the favorite.

The following greatest within the race doesn’t come a lot nearer than Considerably. He ran an absolute stormer within the Portland and has been slightly underestimated all season. He’s on the identical mark as final week’s run and he’s low within the weights. What extra may Julie Camacho need? His performances in handicaps at this stage this season have been 262, which places him bang up there on the end. Properly discovered out there at 9/1 (Betfred).

Quick Response caught my eye when the declarations got here out. His mark of 103 might look an excessive amount of to deal with, however Brandon Wilkie’s seven kilos places him at a workable mark of 96, a pound above his successful mark within the Wentworth. He drops in journey to 6 furlongs after racing at seven this time period, and wasn’t too distant within the Queensferry final day trip. Fascinating at 12/1 (Betfred)



A Small Choice

3:15 – Mill Reef Stakes (Group Two) – Array @ 5/1 (Betfred)

Winners of this race generally come from a Group race final day trip, significantly the Sirenia at Kempton. The one who follows that line of type is Array for Andrew Balding. He wasn’t too far behind Starlust on the Tapeta, however he’s again on a sound turf floor in the present day. He’s by No Nay By no means and loads of black-type runs within the household. He’s enhancing on a regular basis and may work the Sirenia type in his favour.

The easiest of luck!
