Ayr hosts the pick of the action on Racing TV on Tuesday, headlined by a good Listed sprint which looks a suitable opening for Keep Busy on the back of an excellent Royal Ascot effort. She won’t mind at all if the heavens were to open. I'll try and find a winner at a slightly longer price with my three selections though. Good luck!
This is a very moderate handicap with some familiar names in the line-up who seem unlikely to surprise us with improved efforts and if Nicky Mackay can settle this horse better than last time then he may be able to make all over this 12-furlong trip.
He did too much last time on the all-weather, but if that run can be ignored he has been going well enough this season to suggest he can win a modest race and will get few better opportunities than this one. Ivan Furtado has his runners in good form, with three winners in the bag already this month.
The horses that John Mackie received from Steve Gollings have generally done well for their new yard, many after absences so I am going to overlook the 10 months Ventura Gold has been off the track. Mackie’s yard is bang in form and this horse has run very well over course and distance in the past.
Paul Hanagan looks a significant booking (also engaged for another interesting runner in Nat Love in the 1.45) for a runner who has gradually dropped in the weights from the peak of 76, off which he twice ran very well here in 2019, and his most recent winning mark of 73. He is down to 63 now. The market has been a good indicator of expectations for this stable’s runners this season and a positive move should be noted.
Getting Paul Mulrennan back on board and sticking at six furlongs could be the key to enabling Gleniffer to finally break his maiden. There is no doubt he has the ability to win a race - he just needs things to fall right for him and for various reasons they haven't quite done to this point.
His amateur jockey got him far too far behind in a competitive sprint last time and as ever he was closing at the finish but I feel Mulrennan will be alive to his habits and have him closer to the pace than the last time he rode him over a furlong shorter.Start your free one month trial of Racing TV now and enjoy all the action from Britain and Ireland!
