Ayr Placepot: Monday July 30

We go to Ayr for today's Placepot permutation

Ahead of Glorious Goodwood, we head to Ayr for Monday's Placepot permutation...

The winner of a charity race at York last month, Jawaab looks well treated off a career-low mark

14:05 - With eight declared for the opening maiden over six furlongs for two-year-olds, we'll stick with Richard Fahey, the top trainer at the Scottish track over recent years and go with his Majestic Moon. As a brother of dual listed winner Majestic Myles, he looks sure to progress from his debut a fortnight ago, well fancied over C&D when just failing to catch Parisian Prince.

14:35 - The next event is a handicap over the same trip as the opener, with a couple of last-time-out winners catching the eye. Commanche Raider had gone two years without a victory before getting the better of subsequent winner Sir Geoffrey at Pontefract last month, while Blown It bounced back to form here a week ago and should go well again for a yard that continues in good form, especially at this track.

15:05 - The winner of a charity race at York last month, Jawaab looks well treated off a career-low mark in this one-mile-five-furlong handicap and has the capable claimer Jason Hart taking a further 7 lbs off his back. He has three last-time-out winners in opposition, though the biggest danger may come from Sir Mark Prescott's three-year-old Yours Ever, who promises to improve further now stepping up in trip.

15:40 - Tom Dascombe has been in the winners over the last few weeks and he sends Ballista north from his Cheshire yard with hopes of going well in this seven-furlong handicap. His recent effort when third at Chester can be marked up a little, doing best of those that were up with a strong pace that day, and with a smaller field today could have this race ran more to suit.

16:15 - Given her hold-up style, Cosmic Moon is always liable to need luck in running, but she remains fairly treated despite failing to find the frame in a couple of outings since a success at Pontefract last month. She meets the re-opposing Dazzling Valentine on better terms than when behind that filly at Haydock in the first of those two races and should finish in front of Alan Bailey's filly, with every possibility she could be too good for her other eight rivals too.

16:45 - A small field for leg six, and we'll support the recent winners Luctor Emergo and Lord Franklin, both of whom seem sure to continue their moves up the handicapping ranks after their successes here (over C&D) and at Hamilton respectively.
