Ayr’s NAP: EVENT OF SIVOLA | 3:40pm Ayrshire Cancer Support Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick
With Tom Midgley claiming 3lb, the son of Noroit is now effectively only a pound higher than his last winning mark at Musselburgh back in February and he remains lightly raced given his age.
The ground would be a slight concern given that he has rarely contested on a quicker surface but he has taken his form to a new level since being upped to the three-mile trip.
He must give a stone to Grey Atlantic Way who recorded a facile success at Sedgefield last time out but has been more of a model of consistency than that rival.

Experience could be the key factor in the finale with a chance taken on local trainer Michael Smith’s last time out runner-up.
He finished second over track-and-trip back in May on soft ground and the third has since gone in, giving a nice boost to the form.
There should be more to come with that under his belt and he may have too much for some unraced rivals here.
