Follow The Money: Three bets for today's racing at Ayr

Today's going at Ayr is heavy

All today's Follow The Money bets run at Ayr...

"A beaten favourite in his last two races, including at odds-on last time out, concentration is clearly an issue for Donald McCain's hurdler and blinkers are applied this time. He looks like one to take on in what will be a gruelling test over three miles and half a furlong in the heavy ground."

Lay Hellorboston @ 3.7511/4 in the 14:50 at Ayr

We begin today's column with a back of Oil Burner in the 13:45 at Ayr. A hot bet this morning, the William Amos-trained nine-year-old has been supported in from 17.016/1 to 8.88/1. He ran an encouraging race last time out, finishing third over two miles and four furlongs at this track, and looks fairly treated on that effort and with some improvement holds every chance in this race. Brian Harding takes the ride from apprentice, Tony Kelly.

The lay of the day is Hellorboston in the 14:50 who has drifted from an early 3.185/40 to 3.7511/4. A beaten favourite in his last two races, including at odds-on last time out, concentration is clearly an issue for Donald McCain's hurdler and blinkers are applied this time. He looks like one to take on in what will be a gruelling test over three miles and half a furlong in the heavy ground.

We finish with a back of W Six Times in the 15:50 at Ayr following sustained early support from 9.17 to 3.02/1 for the 8yo. This mare produced her best effort for a while last time out, shaping as if a longer trip would suit and carrying bottom weight in a slog through heavy ground looks ideal. She still needs to improve but the money is a good indicator of what is expected. Callum Whillans takes off another 5lbs to aid the cause.
