Tuesday could be the day for Flying Pursuit to finally get his head in front at Ayr, and Alan Dudman is backing him and Maxed Out King at Sedgefield...
"He races over 2m today, but he stays 2m4f well so he'll attack from the front again. He'll also offer the chance to lay back some of your stake considering he is priced at 9/25.5."
Pursuit can crack Ayr for the first time in ages
15:15 Ayr - Back Flying Pursuit @ 11/26.4
I've been following Flying Pursuit around all season, but everything is in place for a decent effort in the 15:15 at Ayr and he can be backed at 11/26.4.
This 0-90 is one of the better races of the day, but it's also less competitive than his previous effort at Ayr in the Bronze Cup.
I backed him in that, and he wasn't beaten too far (just under two lengths) running up the stands' side rail to finish fifth. He was staying on reasonably well over the 6f on that occasion, so the increased yardage to 7f shouldn't be an issue.
He goes well at the track, and the handicapper has dropped him 1lb for that excellent run at the Western Meeting. It's an attractive mark and whilst he hasn't won for a while, I am hoping he can get his head in front on Tuesday.
King to rule again at his favourite Sedgefield
16:10 Sedgefield - Back Maxed Out King @ 5/16.0
This week sees the return of my two favourite jumping tracks - Sedgefield and Hexham, and Maxed Out King seems to love Sedgefield as much as me.
The course specialist saves his best for this venue and scored over course and distance when last seen in March by a couple of lengths. He beat his old rival Roxyfet in that with a great display of jumping and front-running.
Whilst he may be in the veteran stage of his career, he can throw in some bold leaps and he's a real sight to see winging around the fences in the north east.
He races over 2m today, but he stays 2m4f well so he'll attack from the front again. He'll also offer the chance to lay back some of your stake considering he is priced at 9/25.5.
