Ayr’s NAP: GHOST RIDER | 1:00pm Virgin Bet Apprentice Handicap | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Off the same mark at favourite Gweedore but better in at the weights, Mark Johnston’s colt can go one better from his second at Pontefract last time out.

The extended one-mile trip at Wolverhampton found him out on a couple of occasions but the slight reduction in distance seemed to have the desired effect in Yorkshire earlier this month.

Promising claimer Jonny Peate is aboard for the first time and this looks a contest within his reach.

NB: MR ALAN | 2:10pm Virgin Bet Maiden Stakes

It could pay to side with George Boughey’s colt with the trainer’s two-year-old’s in flying form this campaign.

The son of Ulysses contested in a very hot novice at Yarmouth back in May that has worked out well above average and he should improve in chunks now.

Capital Theory is the obvious danger given his effort in a Class 2 at York and he will fancy his chance now down in grade here.
