Stamina crucial for a big run from Jessie
Back Jessiemac @ 6/1 in the 16:25 at Ayr
It will be interesting to see what way Jack Devine goes in the market for Rose Dobbin, but an absence of 17 months is off-putting and at a slightly bigger price, Jessiemac is capable of running a big race back at Ayr.
She goes well on the west coast, and with her limitless stamina and ability to stay so well, I like her claims at 6/1. Unfortunately the seven declared means the lack of an each-way place to go in the double, so we go win only.
Her latest effort came in a valuable Class 2 Mares' race, so this represents a drop in class but she did put together a couple of good runs over the winter in bad ground, including a second in heavy from a mark of 100.
The ground will be quicker than what she faced during February, but one of her most convincing victories came on genuine good ground at Kelso back in 2020 - and she bolted up in that under a confident ride.
A low weight and downgrade in class gives Jessiemac a chance with Thomas Willmott claiming 3lb.
Keep good company with Brother in Scotland
Back Brotherly Company @ 17/2 in the 17:32 at Ayr
The spring/summer conditions suit Brotherly Company, and he's certainly an each-way price with eight runners for the 17:32 2m4f Handicap Chase at 17/2.
He ran a shocker in February the last time he was seen on the track, but a change of tactics backfired, as the 10yo never got involved at all. That was his first run for 159-days, so perhaps we can excuse him the effort, and lacklustre one at that.
The veteran is best when dominating, or certainly up with the pace and was in fine form 12 months ago with back-to-back successes from 104 and 111.
A winner in 0-120 grade and a sound jumper, he is another who stays well and that 3m stamina could be useful down in distance with a 3lb lower mark.
