ALAN marks your card for today's Ayr meeting with five bets plus a couple from elsewhere.
KALAHARI QUEEN can make full use of her mare’s allowance by landing the 2m 5f novices’ chase at Ayr.
Jamie Snowden’s dual hurdles winner at Lingfield and Exeter will appreciate this softer ground after chasing home Majestic Moll at Worcester (good).
The winner went in again at Huntingdon a few days ago. Sandown fourth No Hassle Hoff probably rates the main danger.
PETERS COUSIN was no match for 1-3 hotpot Sassy Diva over course and distance 26 days ago but there was a long gap back to the rest.
Dali Mail is interesting if fully wound up as he was an 18 lengths winner at Kelso (heavy) back in February.
MIGHTY THUNDER hunted up Nicky Richards’ Court Dreaming in a 2m 4f handicap hurdle at Kelso and Lucinda Russell has found the gelding a good opening.
Beau Sancy has won all three starts since joining Olly Murphy but encounters much softer ground today.
It may be worth taking a chance on the fitness of MAC N CHEESE (1.55) as Keith Dalgleish’s eight-year-old overcame a 673-day absence to score by 18 lengths at Perth last September.
The 2m 3f handicap hurdle has an enticing each-way shape if all 16 runners go to post and LASTIN’ MEMORIES should be in the shake-up on the strength of his recent course fourth to Gordon Elliott’s Cold Shoulder.
The six-year-old made most before weakening between the last two flights.
LIVVYS DREAM has been a steadily improving filly for Charlie Hills since scoring here over a mile in September, winning subsequently at Windsor before running Note C close at Newmarket.
The stable saddled a winner yesterday and with favourite Universal Command likely to take a chunk out of the market, Livvys Dream should go off an each-way price.
HEEYAAM makes her handicap debut at Chelmsford City for Marco Botti. She had no chance when third to Star Of Bengal at Wolverhampton but drew five lengths clear of fourth horse Space Bandit, a winner at Southwell on Tuesday.
Heeyaam has twice finished second at Chelmsford City, so we know she handles the surface.
