Sweetspots: Shoemark looks a jockey to follow at Ffos Las
Specialv is 7lb lower than the mark he defied for his latest success, which came in August 2016. He takes his chance over the same course and distance in the 3.00 at Ayr and is clearly weighted to go well.
Kieran Shoemark has been riding extremely well recently and is 4-11 (36 per cent) at Ffos Las. He takes six rides there on his first day riding without a claim with Show Of Force (2.15), Mishari (2.45) and Filament Of Gold (4.15) all holding strong claims.
Easy Wind steps up six furlongs in trip in the 5.00 at Ayr. She represents Sir Mark Prescott, who operates at a 21 per cent strike-rate, and a healthy profit to level stakes, with his handicap debutants. Easy Wind has two entries this week to possibly follow up under a penalty.
