Ayr Place 6 betting preview | November 29th
12.00 – Virgin Bet Fives Novices’ Hurdle – 2m3f
GAILLIMH A STOR won nicely here on his penultimate start and came close to doubling his tally over timber when beaten a neck at Kelso last time on his reappearance. With that outing under his belt, he can put his fitness and experience to good use and defy his penalty here.
Selections: GAILLIMH A STOR
12.35 – Virgin Bet Handicap Hurdle – 2m4f
GENTLEMAN DE MAI overcame inexperience to make a winning debut here last year and returned with a sound effort in defeat at Kelso in a higher-grade race last time. He can take a steps forward here and go close, while Donald McCain’s GOLD EMERY won at Carlisle on his hurdles debut and should improve again now his attentions are turned to handicaps.
Selections: GENTLEMAN DE MAI, GOLD EMERY
13.10 – Virgin Bet Novices’ Hurdle – 2m
CARNFUNNOCK won two of his five bumper starts, including at this course before a solid third behind Facile Vega in a Grade Two back on home soil. He easily brings the best form into the race and is expected to make a winning hurdles debut under Daryl Jacob. He is the one to beat and best bet on the card in my view.
13.40 – Virgin Bet Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase – 2m4f
GOLD CUP BAILLY made the frame in his three hurdle starts before winning easily on his chase debut at Wexford under Daryl Jacob. He should have more to come and could defy top-weight on handicap debut. DONNY BOY ran well when fifth of 11 on chase debut at Carlisle and, with improvement to come, he could pose a bigger threat here.
Selections: GOLD CUP BAILLY, DONNY BOY
14.10 – Virgin Bet ‘Junior’ NH Flat Race – 2m
PRONTOANITA made a good start to her career when second at Aintree despite being beaten around ten lengths and is sure to be wiser here. She’s the only one of these with experience under her belt, so in the hope none of the remainder turn out to be above average, she could go one better.
14.40 – Virgin Bet Handicap Chase – 2m4f
CABOY twice made the frame here during the spring and has undergone wind surgery since he was last seen. He is on an attractive mark and could open his account in this sphere in this race, while BAK ROCKY was second at Kelso last month and is open to improvement back over this longer distance. He’s a serious player.
Selections: CABOY, BAK ROCKY
