BEVERLY

Race 3 – MASTERCLASS 20/1

Paul Midgley has won the last two runnings of the Annie Oxtoby Memorial Handicap and can take the first division this year with stable debutant MASTERCLASS.

Knocking on the door on the all-weather this spring when trained by David Simcock, the five-year-old remains well treated and has joined a team who often excel with sprinters.

Race 4 – FORTUNATE STAR 9/2

Pontefract third Herakles gives the Midgley team useful claims in the second division of the five-furlong event, but preference is for Declan Carroll’s FORTUNATE STAR who kept on well to score at Catterick last month and could have more in the locker.

Race 6 – KINGMONT 2/1

A return to a quicker surface can see KINGMONT regain the winning thread in the Clearanswer Call Centres Handicap.

Down the field on her only juvenile start, she looked a different proposition on reappearance when digging deep to grab the glory in a Kempton maiden by a neck.

However, deep ground at Doncaster did not suit just under two weeks later when she came home third, beaten 11 lengths, on what was her handicap debut.

Her mark has been left unchanged on 73 and it is possibly best to just put a line through that run.

Race 7 – SPARTAN WARRIROR 18/10

SPARTAN WARRIOR justified favouritism at this track last time out in early May. Up in trip and can continue to progress.

Miss Gitana is without a placing in five starts. Unexposed over the distance and not without a chance.

Solar Bentley finished second previous two outings and should be thereabouts, along with Walter Hartright who showed signs of improvement when third recently.

AYR

Race 1 – RAWAASI 33/20

RAWAASI found the frame in four of her five career starts to date. Odds-on favourite last time when unplaced at Bath and a return to this trip is a plus.

Mostar Dreams delivered a decent second on debut at Pontefract prior to placing ten-days ago at Thirsk, so should be thereabouts.

Melon Twist is closely related to six handy performers including the Group-placed Endless Joy and should be feared making racecourse debut.

Race 3 – BE PROUD 11/2

Plenty of these hold chances, but two-time course winner BE PROUD gets the nod after finishing sixth of fifteen in a higher grade on his Musselburgh reappearance last month.

Slainte Mhath boasts plenty of turf winning form including a course and distance success, so will be in the mix.

The Caltonian arrives three from nine when partnered with Jonny Peate. Could give another good account of himself.

Jordan Electrics brings two track and trip wins so cannot be ruled out.

Race 4 – KELPIE GREY 5/2

KELPIE GREY has been in sparkling form at Musselburgh in recent weeks and if he can transfer that to Ayr, he could take some beating in the Weddings At Western House Hotel Handicap.

A length-and-three-quarters winner over a mile on his seasonal bow in April, Kelpie Grey ably dealt with a 5lb rise to make all over seven furlongs at the start of this month.

He looked decent value for the winning margin of two and a quarter lengths, so the extra 6lb he carries now may not be enough to anchor him.

Kelpie Grey is trained by Jim Goldie who could also be on the scoresheet with Tafsir in the concluding Book Fitzdares Raceday On 22 May Handicap.

The five-year-old has been a regular visitor to Ayr of late, running with real consistency off her current rating, and it would be no surprise to see her find the target sooner rather than later.

Race 6 – TAFSIR 13/10

TASFIR boasts three turf wins and placed in all three attempts over course and distance.

Did not see out the longer journey here 12 days ago, when third of four, but can bounce back with a big run.

Billy Bathgate is without a win in twelve attempts since landing a similar handicap tackling track and trip last June.

This Evan Williams-trained gelding is attractively treated at the weights. Could prove hard beat if putting his best foot forward.
