Nick Shiambouros returns with a win selection and a place advice from the NH meeting at Ayr...
"I think he is sitting on a big effort and should go very close"
13:25 Ayr - Herecomesnelson
Herecomesnelson could run well at a big price in this maiden hurdle.
This gelding finished seventh to Maxie at Kelso last month. He held every chance four from home, but was found wanting when the pace lifted and steadily weakened out of contention.
He is best judged on his close second to Virnon at Carlisle in November which reads well in the context of this race.
I think he is well worth an interest in the place market at around 3.55/2.
Infrontofthejudge is an interesting runner. He put in a much improved effort last time out when finishing second to Westend Star at Down Royal on Boxing Day.
He is fairly priced at 4.3100/30 in the win market on the exchange.
16:15 Ayr - Discoverie
Discoverie is a worthy favourite in this handicap hurdle.
Last time out at Catterick he finished second to Hitman Hearns. He ran on fairly well in the closing stages, but never had a realistic chance of catching the runaway winner. He has had his own ideas about the game in the past, but is the clear pick on all known form.
I think he is sitting on a big effort and should go very close.
He is trading at 2.789/5 on the exchange and I have backed him at this price.
Landmeafortune is worth a mention. He put in a fair effort last time out when finishing third to Beaumont's Party at Sedgefield.
If the favourite underperforms he could take advantage.
