Six to follow on Wednesday

There was the prospect of rain overnight at Ayr on ground described as good to soft on Tuesday morning.

The feature contest is the listed Rothsay Stakes for filles and mares over ten furlongs. Having backed Achelois at Epsom on her reappearance I was slightly disappointed with her finishing effort having looked all over the winner for the majority of the race although the winner – Soto Sizzler – is a course specialist.

Angel Power had a slightly disappointing season last year but is a Group winner back in 2020 and was only beaten a length at Nottingham in a similar contest on her reappearance. The winner did little for the form at York last week, however, and the vote goes to MY ASTRA (3.20) who is a half-sister to the yard’s My Oberon and who looked ready for a step back up in distance when third in the Snowdrop Stakes at Kempton on her reappearance over a mile.

After just three career starts the filly remains open to significant improvement and she has form on fast and soft ground.

Recommendation: My Astra 3.20 Ayr

In the 7f handicap KATS BOB (3.55) has won three of his last five starts yet is just 4lbs higher than when scoring over C&D on good to soft ground here back in September. That run has coincided with Iain Jardine fitting his 4-year-old with cheekpieces and his draw in stall three is a plus.

Asamund is beginning to look very well treated on bits of old form and he has finished in the frame in two of his three course visits. He represents a big danger in a race where many of the market leaders have wide draws to overcome.

Recommendation: Kats Bob 3.55 Ayr

Good ground for the summer jumps card at Warwick and Quid Pro Quo was taken out of a similar race at Market Rasen earlier in the month on account of similar ground. He remains an exciting prospect over jumps for his powerful connections and he has had a wind operation since his last start in March 2021. Dan Skelton also fits his 6-y-old with a tongue-tie for the first time which suggests his wind remains an issue.

Sofia’s Rock did us a favour when making all at Ludlow last time and his 7lbs penalty is negated by the stable’s conditional jockey Tristan Durrell taking off 7lbs. Under normal circumstances he would be something to bet on, but I am going to swerve the race as there are at least four other confirmed front-runners in the field. One thing is for sure we are going to see a truly run race.

The feature race on a cracking card is the £30k handicap chase over the minimum distance of two miles. Just six go to post but they bet 3/1 the field and it looks sure to be a truly run race with Sir Tivo and Joke Dancer in the field.

RIKOBOY (5.10) finished behind Leapaway at Chepstow last time, but I hope to see Dr Newland’s 6-y-old reverse the form on a track that suits having ran out a ready winner on hie penultimate start.

The stable have not been in the best of form this spring but, at the time of writing, they have saddled two winners from their last four runners – other two placed – and I hope to see Sam Twiston-Davies – riding at the top of his game at present – return to winning ways given his last three mounts – again at the time of writing – have all finished second.

Recommendation: Rikoboy 5.10 Warwick

Joe Tizzard has inherited an extremely well handicapped horse in Ofalltheginjoints, and regular readers will know that I have been banging on about the horse having to go left-handed having spent last season racing right-handed. Connections have found a very winnable looking race at Southwell, but I vowed never again at Kempton last time and he is best watched.

Frisco Bay has recent form figures of UPP, but he is looking well treated at resent as a result and looks the main danger to TICK TOCK BOOM (6.20) who gets the vote for Ian Williams and William Kennedy.

The mare has never won over fences but is a point winner and her hurdles success at this evening’s trip came from a 12lbs higher mark. The selection has finished in the frame in her last couple of runs and the grey has more than hinted that her turn is near. This looks a gilt-edged opportunity.

Recommendation: Tick Tock Boom 6.20 Southwell

At Kempton this evening, I am interested in the handicap debut of BEARAWAY (6.00) who was beaten half a length by White Wolf at Southwell on his seasonal debut giving the Godolphin runner a stone – weight-for-age.

The winner was beaten less than 10L in the Dante last week when he led to two out before his stamina gave way stepped up to that extended 10f trip. He remains one to have on side back over a mile.

Bearaway has a cracking draw in stall three and is bred to be smart. After just three career starts, he is open to significant improvement as he makes the switch to polytrack for the first time. He gets the each way vote.

Recommendation: Bearaway EW 6.00 Kempton
