Ayr Gold Cup placepot tips

LEG 1   Revich, Titan Rock 

REVICH won this race two years ago and comes here in good form after a close-up third at Chester last time. He handles a bit of cut in the ground and can go well for Hollie Doyle. 

TITAN ROCK ran well at Thirsk latest and is interesting upped to this distance.

LEG 2   Pride Of America

PRIDE OF AMERICA has some top-class form including his win in the John Smith’s Cup at York under Frederick Larson. He followed that Knavesmire success with a close third in hot company at Glorious Goodwood. This trip is ideal and he handles soft ground. He looks the one to beat.

LEG 3   Rathbone, Jump The Gun

RATHBONE has been in sparkling form and is actually 2lb lower than his gutsy win at Doncaster last week. He likes this trip, has a handy draw and likes a bit of give in the ground. He’ll go close again under his capable young rider. 

JUMP THE GUN chased the tip home on Town Moor and won’t be far away again.

LEG 4   Pretty Crystal   

PRETTY CRYSTAL can hit the frame after she added a decent Goodwood effort to a close second in the Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot. The ground was soft that day and the form looks solid.

LEG 5   Summerghand, Orazio 

SUMMERGHAND comes here in fantastic form and has every chance of defending his title. He’s only 2lb higher than 12 months ago and won at York before another excellent effort from a bad draw at The Curragh last time. He has a much better stall today. His hold-up style means rider Danny Tudhope will need a little luck but he’s as good as ever aged nine and is a major player. 

ORAZIO has few miles on the clock and would have a huge chance on his early-season form. He won hot contests at Newmarket and Ascot over this trip with give in the ground. His sixth in the Wokingham was solid before he ended up stranded on the wing in the Stewards’ Cup. He has what should be a good draw under Jim Crowley.

LEG 6   Making Dreams, Sailthisshipalone

MAKING DREAMS was impressive when scoring at Thirsk last time and a 6lb rise in the weights looks fair over a trip that suits.

Richard Fahey has a good record in this race and SAILTHISSHIPALONE looks the pick of his pair.
