EBONY JEWEL (1.35) could be quite an exciting northern recruit to the hurdles game at Ayr today.

He was quite headstrong in his two bumper starts last season, forging 12 lengths clear at Ayr in March. Nick Alexander’s gelding was quite well backed for the competitive bumper at Aintree’s Grand National fixture but faded into sixth behind the Paul Nicholls-trained McFabulous. He might be hard to peg back.

Leading Flat owner Fitri Hay doesn’t have many jumpers and Order Of Thistle goes hurdling on the back of a Sedgefield bumper success four weeks ago when taking the measure of Peter Bowen’s hotpot Dalkingstown. There is better to come from Taking Flight and Witness Protection.

AURORA THUNDER (1.00) has sound prospects in the opening Mares’ Maiden Hurdle. She filled third place behind Le Milos at Kelso last month, having six lengths in hand of Gennady, a comfortable scorer at Kelso on Saturday. Elle Est Grande was no match for classy Echiquier at Hexham but will find this company less demanding.

THREE IS COMPANY (2.10) represents Gordon Elliott in the Novices’ Handicap Chase and he brings solid hurdling form into this 2m 4f contest. The five-year-old led until the final flight when third at Downpatrick last time, with 15 lengths back to a previous bumper winner.

In the concluding bumper Elliott introduces a nicely-bred gelding in MR CAPLAN (3.55), the mount of Richard Johnson, and money for his newcomer would be significant. Legal Beagle is another with an attractive Flat pedigree and Nicky Richards often introduces a promising type at Ayr.

    Ettila De Sivola 2.10 ,Trainer expects big things this season ,goes well fresh ,stable had a winner on Saturday 4/1 GL

      welcome back duncan, slightly concerned that the only jockey to ride your selection (who was also on board for the trainer’s weekend winner) is at the track for 4 rides, including the fav in Ettila’s race yet he isn’t on board today.

      nick scholfield is capable but sporting life lists all of his races back to 30th july, only 1 winner, neither that nor none of his placed finished have been for the trainer. perhaps the place market price will offer a bit of value or w/o the fav.

      1930 polybius 3/1 0.5pts, mythmaket (long shot) 0.25pts e/w

      follow all of my tips to a level stake and we will win, even if you can only afford 50p per point, as long as you are on all of them, we will win long term. i will post longer write ups on the previous days page as to not clogg up the thread.

      starting out with a risky race so as said, stick to the plan.

      After his first win trainer said ” A nice horse
      who we’ve been very patient with we’ll have a couple of more runs to educate him.My aim is to have a hard season as a novice chaser as I feel that’s where we want to be picking the fruits” Maybe jockey booking reflects more education GL

    The writing was on the wall for POLYBIUS who drifted late on to 9/2 having seen money early on. I advise everyone to use b365 who are practically the best bookies for allowing you to cash out without a loss.

    He fell out the stalls and although he is usually held up and did make some headway late, he was never going to get near the heavily backed winner.

    ZIP stood out based purely on the jockey/trainer combination. Having not yet won on turf there are risks attached but he’ll carry a very low weight and was 3rd LTO over C&D, he’ll be 3lbs lower today, in behind last time were two previous winners and a 2nd. 5/1 is still available and if backed at each way, he only needs to finish top 3 (in a 8 runner field) to return your money. His price has shorted in places a little, if you can only get on a 4/1, if playing safe and going each way, you’ll only lose 10p per pound bet each way.

    Barry McHugh did me a favour last week and as such, caught my eye on today. His horse has never done 6f since going handicapping but LTO over 5f he was a decent 3rd of 14 in a Class 2 race on soft going. He had a subsequent 90 rated C3 winner in behind whilst the two in front where both in rich veigns on form.

    With some give in the ground expected, and the fact he is dropped into C4 company will help, and is a backable price at 7/1. Utilise the place market tomorrow to play safer remembering the trip is potentially against him.

    ANOTHER EMOTION is 6/1 and will get my each way support. Adrian Heskin in these silks has been there or there abouts recently and he teamed up for this owner/trainer combo last week to win at Cheltenham.

    Having haf 6 starts over hurdles, he sent chasing off a 250 day break, he returned off 220 days previously and was a decent 2nd. All of this starts have had soft in the description and the track is currently soft/good to soft.

    With only 9 runners, we’ll get 3 places and 6/1 at 1/4 the odds is acceptable enough.

    Katie Scott has been sending a few out recently and I think she’ll get a winner soon enough. Although ‘won this race last year’ didn’t mean much with Polybius, ROCKLEY POINT is another seeking to win a race for a 2nd year running.

    Phil Dennis was on board last year, takes two rides for the trainer but isn’t on RP. That alone is enough to overlook but given conditions will suit and he’s 5lbs below last years winning mark, he’s just about backable e/w.

    NIGHT LAW (16:15 Catterick) is another from Katie Scott. Two C&D wins were followed by two poor runs but is another an e/w shout. The race is slightly too competitive for me but if primed, she’s only 4lbs above her C&D win 3 starts back. just about worth chancing each way. I think she’d be a shock winner but only 4lbs above her C&D gives her a squeek if primed.

    I can’t tip place only bets until markets are available, and I don’t have time in the mornings. I also don’t use b365 but would suggest using their EACH WAY EXTRA feature to increase your chance of winning. Typically, a 10/1 shot for 3 places will be 8/1 for 5 places, which is quite hard to ignore.

    14:05 Catterick – ZIP 0.5pt win 5/1 0.25pt e/w 3 places
    15:10 Catterick – BROKEN SPEAK 7/1 win 0.25pts, 0.25pts e/w 3 places
    13:45 Chepstow – ANOTHER EMOTION 6/1 0.25pt win, 0.25pts e/w
    13:00 Catterick – ROCKLEY POINT 9/1 e/w 0.25pts 3 places (try to get 4 of 5 places via bet365)
