William Hill Ayr Silver Cup

I’m happy enough with the 1 Point win on Grissom at 33/1 previously advised and I’m going to supplement that in this race with a bet on what looks one of the more progressive horses in the race in Lightning Cloud. He had been steadily getting better until his last run at Ascot and has a very good 5th in the Victoria Cup of 2lbs more than this on soft ground. That run was after a break and he has had a break again since Ascot which should freshen him up nicely for this race.

William Hill Ayr Gold Cup

The Cheka’s form on soft ground this year is right out of the top drawer with a 2nd and 3rd in 2 Groups 1s. He is clearly much better on soft and as hard as I’ve looked I can’t find anything with anyway near that form in this race. Most of the main competition for him is going to come near the top of the weights and really he looks well capable of giving a few pounds to these. If he runs to form he stands a great chance even of this mark and he looks overpriced at 19 on Betfair

Newmarket 3:55

Riptide looks a bit of value here stepping back up in trip from his last 2 runs. He ran a very decent race in the Queen Alexandra at Ascot considering the conditions of the race, and if he can get near to that form here he’ll have a decent shout at a big looking 27 on Betfair. He is certain to be staying on at the end and could be a nice horse for EW multiples.

1 Point win 27 Betfair
