"He holds major claims in a race that shouldn’t take a great deal of winning..."

Timeform on Star Cracker

2.00 EBF Novice Auction Stakes (5) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
100p 6. SOCIETY QUEEN Richard Fahey Paddy Mathers
90 1. CELEBRITY DANCER Kevin Ryan Non Runner

Analyst's Verdict:
Society Queen pulled clear of the remainder when runner-up on her debut at Catterick last month and looks sure to progress, particularly now stepped up in trip. She can open her account. Light Heart looks the pick of the newcomers, ahead of Hurricane Hero.


2.30 Ayrshire Cancer Support "Confined" Novice Stakes (5) 1¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
83+ 1. SHE'S PUKKA Iain Jardine Graham Lee
77 5. HOME BEFORE DUSK Keith Dalgleish Connor Beasley
74 7. DOON STAR Jim Goldie James Sullivan

Analyst's Verdict:
She's Pukka shaped as if better for the run when an encouraging fourth at Wetherby on her reappearance and is taken to return to winning ways. Home Before Dusk and Butterfly Lily are other key players.


3.05 ayrshirecs.org Handicap (6) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
75 2. STAR CRACKER Jim Goldie Daniel Tudhope
74 4. PAVERS PRIDE Noel Wilson Connor Beasley
73 8. CELERITY Lisa Williamson Phil Dennis (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Star Cracker had little chance on his latest start and is best judged on his 2 previous near-misses last month. He holds major claims in a race that shouldn't take a great deal of winning. Perfect Words and Brendan are others to consider.


3.35 Volunteer To Help Ayrshire Cancer Support Handicap (4) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
92 8. KUPA RIVER Roger Fell Graham Lee
91 9. ORIENTAL LILLY Jim Goldie James Sullivan
90 2. MY NAME IS RIO Michael Dods Connor Beasley

Analyst's Verdict:
Jack The Truth had a productive winter, scoring 3 times, and proved he's just as effective on turf with fine efforts in defeat the last twice. He can land the spoils here. Landing Night, Oriental Lilly and My Name Is Rio make up the shortlist.


4.10 Ayrshire Cancer Support James Bond Ball Handicap (4) 7f50y

Timeform Top Rated:
99 5. SAINT EQUIANO Keith Dalgleish Graham Lee
98 14. ZEBULON Ruth Carr James Sullivan
98 8. OUR CHARLIE BROWN Tim Easterby Rachel Richardson (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Alemaratalyoum caught the eye on just his second start for Iain Jardine here last time, finishing with running left after meeting trouble. He gets the nod in what looks a competitive event. Saint Equiano and Our Charlie Brown head the list of dangers.


4.45 Ayrshire Cancer Support Here To Help Handicap (5) 1m5f26y

Timeform Top Rated:
93 5. INGLEBY HOLLOW David O'Meara Daniel Tudhope
92 9. WOR LASS Donald Whillans Rachel Richardson (3)
90 11. BRAES OF LOCHALSH Jim Goldie James Sullivan

Analyst's Verdict:
This can go to Wor Lass, who took advantage of a drop in the weights when resuming winning ways at Musselburgh earlier this month. Still fairly treated, she is taken to follow up here. Ingleby Hollow and Artful Rogue can emerge next best.


5.15 Fundraising Ideas At ayrshirecs.org Handicap (Lady Amateur Riders) (6) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
95 4. BERLIOS Rebecca Bastiman Miss Becky Smith
94 1. SMUGGLERS CREEK Iain Jardine Miss Emma Sayer
93 3. MUNTHANY Tim Easterby Miss Emily Easterby (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Berlios has been a model of consistency of late and remains on a workable mark. She can gain an overdue victory in the finale. Cheeni and Munthany are others to consider.
