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 12.25pm at Southwell:
Top weight Cawthorne Lad will be fancied by many to follow up his comfortable debut victory over fences at Stratford last month. The Jonjo O’Neill-trained gelding didn’t particularly impress with his jumping on that occasion however and off a 9lb higher mark could be worth opposing with the more experienced Happy News.
The grey mare has won three of her eight starters over fences, all at Class 5 level. The mount of 3lb claimer Jordan Nailor was pulled up in a Class 4 race at Bangor earlier this month but the daughter of Fair Mix was never travelling at any stage there and is better judged on her easy victory at Leicester back in March.
Our Tip for the 1.25pm at Southwell:
Only five runners but an interesting novices’ limited handicap chase. Having his first start for trainer Aytach Sadik since leaving the powerful Irish stable of Gordon Elliott, Silver Star is probably best watched on this occasion. Heartbreak Kid and Across The Line both have claims on their best form. But this may concern the two horses at the head of the weights, Light N Strike and Isolate.
The latter was a disappointing beaten favourite at Kempton earlier this month but a reproduction of his victory over Light N Strike, again at that track on his penultimate start, would make Alan King’s charge very hard to beat on today’s terms.
1lb better off with the Emma Lavelle-trained five-year-old, Tom Cannon’s mount had eight lengths to spare over the top weight at the Surrey racecourse and a similar effort should be good enough for the Maxios gelding to record a second win over fences.
Our Tip for the 5.15pm at Newcastle:
Plenty can be given a chance in this wide-open one mile handicap, including the hat-trick-seeking top weight Masked Identity and the Julie Camacho-trained Proclaimer who will be attempting to win for the fifth time in the space of 10 weeks.
However, despite yet to make the frame in four attempts over this course and distance, the David O’Meara-trained Star Shield is fancied to atone for an unlucky run at the north-east track last month off a mark just 1lb higher than when beating Masked Identity at Ascot over two years ago.
The mount of Connor Beasley was coming with what looked a potentially winning challenge here on his most recent start when failing to get a clear run approaching the final furlong. Despite having to be switched, the six-year-old was still beaten just over a length and with a little more luck the gelding should make the frame at the very least.
