TALK NOW (6.00) is well worth the wait on a marathon ten-race card at Ayr.
It often pays to stick with an improving mare and Iain Jardine has Talk Now at the top of her game. She was always in control at Beverley six days ago and can defy a 5lb penalty in the concluding apprentices’ handicap from a good pitch in stall one.
BRINGITONBORIS (3.40) is equipped with cheek-pieces and is entitled to go close in the 1m 2f handicap if able to match his fine fourth to Thibaan in better class at Doncaster nine days ago. Little Ted scored twice in June, at Thirsk and Beverley, and probably remains in good nick on the evidence of his most recent second to runaway winner Striding Edge at Pontefract.
EAGLE COURT (5.25) meets some exposed older rivals in the mile handicap and David O’Meara’s three-year-old edged out the William Haggas-trained Bint Australia in a Pontefract maiden last month. Bint Australia was denied narrowly by John Gosden’s Bizzi Lizzi on next start at Wolverhampton, so the form looks reliable. Clay Regazzoni showed a bit more last time when third to Three Coins here over seven furlongs, while Roger Fell’s Global Spirit has been most consistent this summer.
