Horse racing tips for Monday: Harry Allwood's two best bets

Our man Harry Allwood shares his top tips for Monday's action, with a selection in the 1m2f handicap at Ayr, live on Racing TV, among his fancies.

3.15 Ayr: Havana Party at a general 9-2

This five-year-old looked unlucky not to finish closer over course and distance last time out where a tardy start left him further back than ideal. He eventually stayed on to finish fourth in a race that wasn't run to suit, and the decision to keep him over this trip looks a good move.

The handicapper has dropped him another pound for that outing and he now finds himself on a rating 5lb below his latest success which he recorded 12 months ago in a better contest than this.

Billy Garritty, who rode the selection for the first time when last seen, retains the mount, and the in-form rider has been operating a strike-rate of over 20 per cent in the past fortnight.

First-time blinkers replace cheekpieces on Monday and if the new headgear brings out the best in Havana Party, he is definitely handicapped to go close.

7.30 Wolverhampton: Aberama Gold at 4-1 with Bet365

Aberama Gold looks nicely treated on his best form and is worth chancing in this 0-85 handicap.

Keith Dalgleish's charge has gone close on three of his five outings in better races this year and it is best to forgive his latest effort where he stumbled leaving the stalls plus was not ideally placed throughout.

He now finds himself 3lb below his last winning mark, and he was not beaten far off a 5lb higher rating over this course and distance last season.

His draw in stall 2 should allow him to race prominently, and he is Dalgleish's only runner at Wolverhampton on Monday evening.
