Bielsa Scores

Morning all,

A sell-out 12,000 crowd was in attendance at Ayr for Gold Cup Day. That was in sharp contrast to the 120 who were on course last year.  Racegoers got to enjoy both the sunny weather and Scotland’s most valuable day’s racing of the flat season.

Inside today’s main piece, you can read my thoughts on Saturday’s action at Ayr and Newbury. Plus, I have a selection from day two of the Listowel Festival.

Silver And Gold Cups

Good morning all,

I've looked at the two big handicaps at Ayr today, the Silver Cup and Gold Cup at Ayr, in the hope of finding something at a big price for both. I'll play a few each-way doubles on the two races, with the firms throwing extra places at us this morning, but as ever my main selection will be at the end.

Ghathanfar got us an each-way return yesterday, so I'm looking for a Cup repeat!

Ayr Selection

Morning all,

I had Wi-Fi issues last evening so I’m running behind schedule this morning which means today’s column is shorter than usual.

It's the final day of Yarmouth’s Eastern Festival today and that coincides nicely with the start of Ayr’s Western Meeting which culminates on Saturday with the Virgin Bet Ayr Gold Cup.  There are some big field sizes for some fairly run of the mill handicaps. The highlight of an eight-race card is the Virgin Bet Kilkerran Cup Handicap (4.10).

There are also afternoon fixtures at Pontefract and Naas and the evening action comes from Chelmsford.

Inside today’s main piece I have had a look at Saturday’s big 2-year-old race at Newbury. Plus, the big race at Ayr this afternoon.
