Timeform on Ralph Boy Two

Timeform provide their three best bets at Ayr on Friday...

Invincibly - 13:40 Ayr

Invincibly is from a good family and fetched a six-figure sum for the second time earlier this year. He made plenty of appeal ahead of his debut at Thirsk earlier this month and produced a promising first effort, no real match for the winner, who'd had the benefit of a previous run, but running on well and pulling six lengths clear of the remainder. He is open to improvement and is taken to go one better this time around.

Bickerstaffe - 14:45 Ayr

Bickerstaffe attracted support on his debut at Hamilton at the start of the month, and he repaid his backers in no uncertain terms, making an impressive winning start to his career. He hit the line strongly and recorded a notably good time in the process, adding plenty of substance to that form, and given how visually imposing it was, he gets the vote to take this step up in grade in his stride.

Ralph Boy Two - 17:25 Ayr

Ralph Boy Two's form may be a little inconsistent, but he has shown in his last three runs that he remains in good form. All three of his most recent races coming at Hamilton, he produced his two best efforts to date in twice hitting the frame, before possibly having his stamina stretched too far over 11f last time, still shaping as if in good form for much of the race though. This step back to a mile should show him to better advantage and he appeals as being on a handy mark.
