Back Robbing The Prey in the 12:50 at Ayr

12:50 Ayr - Robbing The Prey


It is difficult to look beyond Robbing The Prey in this maiden hurdle. This gelding put in a solid performance when finishing second to Craggaknock at Wetherby last month. He was headed at the final flight, but fought hard all the way to the line. The front two finished a mile ahead of the third placed finisher.

I think he is sitting on a big effort, and is fairly priced at 2.186/5 on the exchange.

French import Capitoul is worth a mention. He was placed in a couple of hurdle races in France in October, but I think he will have his work cut out to trouble the selection.


13:05 Hereford - Gibbes Bay


I am going to take a chance with Gibbes Bay in this good looking contest.

This gelding was a little disappointing when finishing fourth to Claimantakinforgan last month. He did not handle the testing conditions well, but put in some solid work in the closing stages. He had previously won a bumper in good style at Ayr in the spring. I think he will be much better suited by the conditions today, and should run well at a decent price. He is currently trading at 9.417/2 in the win market and 2.3411/8 in the place market.

The short priced favourite is Acting lass who is trading at 2.6613/8. This gelding was most impressive on debut when beating Bradford Bridge over this course last month. He took the lead two flights from home and skipped clear to win very easily. He is a deserving favourite, but this looks like a competitive event. I can afford to let him win at that price.
