Sputnik – 4:50 Ayr (10/1 – bet365)
Hailing from Jackie Stephen’s yard, Sputnik could be one to note in a 2m3½f Handicap Hurdle at Ayr.
The six-year-old returned after a four-month break at Kelso earlier in the month, but he drifted off the pace and finished 42 lengths off the winner.
The gelding may have needed the run last time out and he is only 4lbs above his last winning mark for his connections.
He has a 7lb claimer booked in and he could well give a better account of himself here.
At the price of 10/1, Sputnik could push for the places here.
