WILL SOMERS (6.40) has been expensive to follow but can get back in punters’ good books by landing the 1m 2f handicap at Ayr.
Kevin Ryan’s gelding has been a beaten favourite on his last five starts but this drop into Class 6 company can work the oracle. He was reeled in by Greengage at Redcar 15 days ago and they clash again here. The winner, fit from a successful winter on the all-weather, probably had the edge in sharpness that day and Will Somers can exact his revenge.
LION TOWER (5.00) is worth a wager in the mile handicap. He took full advantage of a hefty weight concession when beating Overwrite at Newcastle and the runner-up came out six days later to score at Newmarket’s Craven fixture. Lion Tower is just preferred to market rivals Challet and Asdaa.
DANIELSFLYER (7.45) is taken to overcome a 4lb rise for winning at Redcar on quick ground 22 days ago. Michael Dods has his string in top form.
WOOTTON CREEK (8.15) has an official rating of 82 which makes her the one to beat in the concluding fillies’ maiden stakes. She flopped on heavy ground at Nottingham but had earlier finished second in a 15-runner Newmarket contest. Turandot, placed on all four starts last campaign, and Kraken Filly cannot be discounted.
