Dave Nevison's top tips for Wednesday: Get in the flow with River Icon

Our top tipster Dave Nevison has three top tips for the meeting at Ayr on Wednesday - watch how the fare live on Racing TV.

Ayr: 1.05: Southeast Rose

Martin Todhunter’s recent runners have either not made it past the first or unseated when gambled on but have generally been in good form and the trainer has possibilities of a winner at a price here.

The step up in trip seemed to suit this daughter of Beat Hollow, as might be expected, when she showed improved form on her final run last season, her first appearance in a handicap.

The market will give us a guide to fitness but dropped a further 2lb for her reappearance she could run well.

Ayr: 2.15: River Icon

This mare has run some good races on the Flat on her past three starts, most recently in a competitive event at Doncaster where she took up the running three out and got pegged back by better fancied horses in the last furlong.

She has Billy Garrity back on board claiming 5lb, as he was last time she won over hurdles at Perth, and she is only 5lb higher higher here, albeit Garritty is only able to claim 3lb.

Heavy ground will be no issue and the stable have been in form on the Flat and jumps recently.

Ayr: 3.20: Bafana Blue

Is a horse to follow from a stable, Maurice Barnes, in good form.

A 7lb penalty for his win at Carlisle this month does not look like stopping him here despite very testing conditions.

Barnes never rushes his horses on and it is possible this eight-year-old has just needed time to start to show his best as he showed little over hurdles but has really progressed over fences.

He beat a useful and in-form horse of Twiston-Davies in very good style last time and he can land another before the handicapper gets his measure.
