The summer festivals closed their doors for another year on the weekend, as the Ayr Gold Cup Festival drew to a close on Saturday.
Flat fans had plenty of action to sink their teeth into over the weekend, with the likes of Newmarket and Newbury hosting some top-class cards.
Once again, the team have compiled their notes from the weekend in hope of picking out some new tracker fodder that could land the spoils later down the line.
The Paddock Picks Squad have pinned down a few contenders that could be making their way to the winners’ enclosure in the near future.
Here are three runners that may well be worth adding to your trackers.
MOTAGALLY (3:40 Ayr, fourth)
Going off at the odds of 33/1, Motagally outran his eye-catching price tag to finish fourth in the Ayr Gold Cup.
Charles Hills’ has proven to be fairly consistent for his connections this season, as he has finished in the top four in all five of his starts this term.
The five-year-old wasn’t suited by the recent rainfall on the track and if the conditions were faster, he may well have finished higher up the pecking order.
However, Motagally still remains at a workable mark and he could strike at some point in the near future.
DHABAB (4:00 Newbury, fourth)
Dhabab may have failed to justify favouritism in the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury, but he does look like a runner that has a bright future ahead of him.
The two-year-old didn’t get a decent run throughout the six-furlong contest but he gave a creditable account of him in the circumstances he was put in.
John & Thady Gosden’s colt could well have more to offer in this company further down the line and he may be one to watch out for next season.
Dhabab is worth keeping an eye on next season and is definitely worth adding to your tracker.
WOBWOBWOB (4:50 Ayr, third)
Wobwobwob produced an eye-catching performance in the 7f Handicap at Ayr, making up plenty of ground in the closing stages to snatch third for his connections.
The three-year-old looked down and out approaching the three-furlong marker, but he gamely responded to the pressure applied from Hollie Doyle and he powered down the home straight.
The gelding would have snatched second if the line didn’t come as quick as it did and he clearly look able to deal with a little bit further.
Wobwobwob could be cracking value if he was run over a mile and he is one to add to your tracker for further down the line.
