Ayr – 16th November: DOM’S NAP + NB | Tuesday’s 2 Best Bets

Our best two bets for the action at Ayr on Tuesday afternoon



Ayr Racecourse Grandstand. Grade 1 venue hosting the Scottish Grand National and Ayr Gold Cup events. Ayrshire, Scotland, UK, Europe
Ayr’s NAP: AFRICAN DANCE | 2:50pm Coral Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick

With Sean Bowen an intriguing booking to the saddle, the in-form Olly Murphy yard continues to rake in the winners and his son of Shirocco looks to hold strong claims up in Scotland.

He disappointed at Plumpton when last seen but could well be the type to make a better chaser, with some early hurdle form suggesting he’s up to being ahead of this opening mark of 121.

Ian Jardine’s Animore finished a fine second over course-and-distance last time out and appears the main danger to the selection.

NB: CARBFUNNOCK | 3:53pm Coral Open NH Flat Race

Daryl Jacob heads north for a duo of rides for Simon Crawford and he looks to have crystal clear claims in the finale for the County Atrim invader whose charge finished third at Punchestown back in April.

He receives 7lb off Kelso winner Geordies Dream, who is the clear alternative to the selection but could be weighted out of contention here under Brian Hughes.

Crawford is currently enjoying an 18% win-rate in this sphere and it would perhaps be disappointing if he fails to meet the market expectations.
