Ayr 14:55 Racecard & Betting Preview

Sporting Life Preview

Yet another cracking handicap but CLAIMANTAKINFORGAN will have plenty of takers. An excellent fifth in the Supreme Novices’, better ground can seem him reverse earlier running at Musselburgh with Beyond The Clouds despite worse terms. Nico de Boinville’s mount looks a better bet that stablemates Verdana Blue and Charli Parcs. Chesterfield looks a big danger if reproducing his fourth in the County Hurdle as he won this off a 2lb higher mark last year. Brelade, Flying Tiger and A Hare Breath were behind the latter at Cheltenham but Ben Pauling’s charge did win a Listed handicap at Sandown in December. Midnight Shadow needs a change of fortune but Flashing Glance could be interesting as he made giant strides in the autumn and will likely strip fitter for a win at Ludlow.

Oddschecker Verdict

Nicky Henderson has a strong hand with Verdana Blue and Claimantakinforgan both warranting plenty of respect as they finally get a chance to run on a sound surface. However, the latter meets BEYOND THE CLOUDS on 5lb worse terms than when they met off level weights at Musselburgh when Kevin Ryan's gelding won and he is another in the field who will be a lot better on this kind of ground. Last year's winner Chesterfield and Flashing Glance complete the shortlist.

Prediction: 1st Beyond The Clouds, 2nd Verdana Blue, 3rd Claimantakinforgan
