KEITH DALGLEISH saddled four winners last week for Glasgow owner John Wright and one of that quartet, UNIVERSAL GLEAM (3.05) can make a quick follow-up at Ayr this afternoon.
The four-year-old made all to score readily at Hamilton last Friday evening and this keen-going type has a fine record at Ayr, finishing first, second and third on three visits. Universal Gleam won't get things all his own way up front as Trevithick is a confirmed trailblazer, so he could sit on this one's tail before kicking for home on the fast ground.
YOLO AGAIN (3.35) managed only sixth to prolific winner Leodis Dream at Chester but will appreciate this slight drop in grade. Beverley scorer Friendly Advice is another fancied Dalgleish runner but Yolo Again is preferred on this slick surface.
The Listed Fillies' and Mares' Rothesay Stakes is a cracking little contest, with Roger Varian's Shenanigans a short-priced favourite. Another far traveller is VIVIANITE (4.05), an excellent third to Awesometank and Anna Nerium at Goodwood, and she had form on firm ground when trained by Mick Halford in Ireland.
MAULESDEN MAY (4.35) has ran some of her best races at Ayr and wasn't beaten far behind Apterix at Musselburgh earlier this month. She has every chance of keeping the Dalgleish bandwagon rolling along.
SLEEPING LION (7.55) wasn't given much of a ride at Wolverhampton when held up too far off the pace but he ran on stoutly into second spot behind Sir Michael Stoute's Crystal King. James Fanshawe's gelding scored over course and distance last June and Sleeping Lion is worth a second chance.
