Monday tips: nutmeg the bookies with Kafoo at Ayr

Mon 14 Aug 2017

Tom Stanley, Dave Nevison, Geoffrey Riddle as The Score and Chris Dixon have provided followers of the daily tips with three winning days in succession - Tom Peacock has four tips for Monday's action.

2.15 Ayr - Kafoo:

Kafoo was a recent horses-in-training purchase for the Mick Appleby yard, which has done so well with similar types before. Not over-raced by Ed Dunlop, he had only three outings after a long lay-off, with possible excuses for low placings each time. The gelded son of Dansili's only win so far came over this 7f and a drop down from an unsuitable mile looks perfect. Worth a try off a lenient rating for this good operation at 6-1.

2.45 Ayr - Pipe Dreamer:

Kevin Ryan’s stable has been firing in the winners with regularity since the three-week shutdown earlier in the summer due to equine herpes and Pipe Dreamer was one to show a marked improvement in form on his reappearance when fourth over course and distance a fortnight ago. Cheekpieces might have contributed but as the gelding is a homebred brother to the late Guy Reed’s smart Tiddliwinks, he may have just needed more time. Looks very tempting off a mark of just 45.

3.00 Ripon - On Fire:

A model of consistency this year, including a win at this trip at Nottingham and respectable efforts in a couple of good races at York. It was no disgrace on his most recent outing at Haydock to have been beaten by the similarly progressive Stamford Raffles, who has franked the form since. There are several in the field that might provide the pace, if On Fire does not do it himself, and with the James Bethell yard going well, he has another one in him under these conditions.

7.10 Windsor - Don’t Give Up:

This well-bred Dubawi colt did not learn a lot more when making a winning debut over 7f in an ordinary Kempton maiden and will have gained far more know-how when nearly closing down the far more streetwise, and well-ridden, Pillar Of Society in a mile handicap at Newmarket. Another couple of furlongs looks much more the right sort of distance for this son of Dubawi and as a three-year-old Don’t Give Up should simply have a lot more scope to improve than his mixed rivals.
