Well-handicapped Speed Company set to score at Ayr

Ayr: stages racing on Monday afternoon
1 of 1

Newmarket: David Milnes

Buckland Boy(7.30 Windsor, nap)

Charlie Fellowes's hope was not far behind a few subsequent winners when seventh in a maiden at Kempton last month and could be well treated off a mark of 67. The son of Bated Breath blew out well for this on the Limekilns on Friday.

Others to follow
Ripon 3.25 Restive Spirit.
Windsor 5.30 Arnoul Of Metz, 6.00 Ip Dip, 6.30 Revich, 7.00 Midnight Meeting, 8.00 Dubai Silk.
Wolverhampton 5.40 Miss Milly B, 6.10 Dutch Monarch, 6.40 Central City, 7.10 Maid Millie, 7.40 Real Estate, 8.10 Mythological.

North: Colin Russell

Speed Company(3.40 Ayr, nap)

Returned from a break to finish fifth over course and distance last time. Well handicapped on his best form, any rain will suit and his stable is going great guns.

Others to follow
Ayr 1.35 Freed From Desire, 2.05 Harbour Patrol, 2.40 Be Bold, 3.10 Chinese Spirit, 4.15 Bossipop, 4.45 Our Place In Loule, 5.15 Burnieboozle.
Ripon 1.50 Sophia Maria, 2.20 Delectable, 2.55 Stone The Crows, 3.25 Aquarium, 3.55 Breathable, 4.30 Polar Forest.
Windsor 6.30 Royal Big Night.
Wolverhampton 5.40 Wide Acclaim, 7.10 French Twist, 7.40 Pinarella, 8.10 Kit Marlowe, 8.40 Corton Lad.

Lambourn: James Burn

Smooth Sailing(6.10 Wolverhampton, nap)

Never got into it at Leicester last time, but has had a nice break since then and stepping back up in trip to 7f should suit this lightly raced filly, who has potential to be better than we have seen.

Others to follow
Ayr 3.40 Not So Sleepy.
Ripon 2.20 Nina Petrova.
Windsor 5.30 Langley Vale, 6.00 Shorter Skirt, 7.00 Fast Dancer.
Wolverhampton 5.40 Javelin.

West Country:Tim Mitchell

Trotter(6.40 Wolverhampton, nap)

Off the mark in a seller over course and distance in February and, on these terms, he is fancied to add to that success.

Others to follow
Windsor 6.30 Greeley.

Racing Post Ratings: Sam Walker

Bossipop(4.15 Ayr)

Well treated on last year's form and been edging closer to that level on recent starts. Not beaten far at Ripon last time and down in grade here.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

First Bombardment(4.45 Ayr)

Made a pleasing seasonal return on his first run for Gordon Elliott here on Saturday and, with the outing under his belt, looks poised to end his lean spell.

Longshot: Olly Eden

First Bombardment(4.45 Ayr)

Dropped in the handicap last year before making a satisfactory return to action following a long absence on Saturday, travelling smoothly before flattening out. Gordon Elliott's gelding is entitled to improve for the run and can go well at an each-way price.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Perfect Tapatino(6.20 Ballinrobe)

Having encountered traffic problems which possibly cost him the race at Leopardstown on Thursday, the Joseph O'Brien-trained four-year-old, who was making his handicap debut when third in that 20-runner event, can get off the mark over this longer trip.

The Raceform Interactive nugget

Joe Fanning has won on both his previous two mounts for trainer John James Feane (+£4.62 to £1 stakes), including once at Ayr. He bids to maintain his 100 per cent record onCurly Girl in the 2.40.
