The jump meeting at Ayr on Monday has attracted plenty of runners with only one of the six races resulting in a single-figure field. We will provide a Horse Racing tip for this seven-runner 3m novices’ limited handicap chase at 2.45pm along with two other races on the card.
Our first Horse Racing tip comes in the 1.05pm race, an extended 2m 4f handicap chase, with our second tip, also run over the same trip at 2.10pm, running in a Class 4 handicap hurdle.
Our Tip for the 1.05pm at Ayr:
If there is a well handicapped horse in this modest Class 5 handicap chase it is almost certainly the Rose Dobbin-trained Eagle De Guye who is surely capable of better than the seven-year-old has achieved to date in his three runs over fences.
The mount of Craig Nichol showed plenty of promise on his debut over fences, finishing third in a competitive novices’ handicap chase at Wetherby last December before returning to that course on Boxing Day when sent off a well-backed 10/3 favourite.
Despite finishing only seventh, the gelding ran much better than that form would suggest and again ran well a month later when going down by just over a length in a similar race at Musselburgh. Providing the son of Buck’s Boum is fit enough on his first run of the campaign, the unexposed contender looks the one to beat. Rapid Raider, a winner at Bangor last month, is the other one to consider.
Our Tip for the 2.10pm at Newbury:
Plenty can be given a chance in this Class 4 handicap hurdle, including surprise Carlisle winner Time Leader, the unexposed JP McManus-owned Operation Overlord and recent 50/1 Ayr runner-up Go Bob Go.
However, the each-way value may lie with the horse who finished sixth in that Ayr race, Flood Defence, who has about six lengths to find with Go Bob Go but enjoys a pull of 3lb and but for a mistake at the fourth-last in that race would have finished a lot closer.
The mount of Danny McMenamin finished second over course and distance last month after running well in a competitive Flat handicap at the track earlier in the month and off bottom weight is fancied to make the frame at the very least.
Our Tip for the 3.55pm at Newbury:
Any market move for the Michael Scudamore-trained Cadeyrn should be taken very seriously, as the gelding showed plenty of promise over hurdles when last seen over three years ago. If the son of Flemensfirth is fit enough on his first start over fences following such a long break and two wind operations, the mount of Richard Patrick could go close.
With fitness guaranteed however, and following an eyecatching first run over fences last month, this can go to Buzz De Turcoing from the stable of Samual Drinkwater. The mount of James Bowen, despite facing only three rivals, faced a stiff test on his chasing debut against runners from the Dan Sketon and Paul Nicholls stables.
While unable to cope with the finishing pace of the 135-rated Ashtown Lad, Buzz De Turcoing had the 143-rated Barbados Buck’s 15 lengths back in third place after travelling well for most of the race. The gelding’s opening handicap mark of 123 looks quite lenient based on that run and should prove hard to beat with a similar performance.
