THERE is a strong Irish presence at Ayr this evening and John Feane’s JUST SHERRY (8.20) looks sure to attract interest. The filly was beaten a neck by John Oxx’s Miss Zizi and the winner came out to run a fine third at Leopardstown. Danny Tudhope is a notable booking.
Snowdon is up 8lb for her wide-margin Yarmouth victory back in June but it was a weak contest. Of more interest are Ventura Gold and Mystical Mac.
REMEMBER ROCKY (8.50) scored over course and distance 12 months ago and is ideally weighted for a repeat performance. Lucy Normile’s gelding appreciates good ground and Remember Rocky drops into Class 6 company on the back of a respectable fourth to Rock N Rolla. He’s a big ew price at 16-1 last night.
There are few more consistent handicappers than LOGI (7.50) and Rebecca Bastiman deserves plaudits for keeping him in top form through a fairly busy summer campaign. Logi split Smugglers Creek and Tommy G over course and distance last month before being pipped at Chester.
At Newbury, ALMOREB (3.25) is interesting returning from a break. Richard Hannon’s top weight drops in grade having run sixth to Via Serendipity at Sandown and if the forecast showers do arrive in time to alter the going, that shouldn’t inconvenience Almoreb, a past winner on good to soft.
Favourite Rebel Assault ran another cracking race at Goodwood last week and probably boasts the best form. However, she has been struggling to see out her races and may prove vulnerable.
