Timeform pick out three bets from Ayr on Tuesday afternoon...

"He's worth another chance, and is fancied to score now dropped to his lowest mark for two years."

Timeform on Masham Star

Rebel State - Ayr 15:05

Whilst Rebel State's career strike rate isn't too appealing (1-26), he was unlucky to bump into a better-treated rival on his return at Musselburgh just over a fortnight ago, having been poorly drawn and left with too much to do two furlongs out, before finishing fast and catching the eye at the death. Raised just 2 lb for that run by the handicapper, he seems sure to make another bold bid, and could well go one better here. Adventureman generally runs his race and can go close again, whilst Warrior's Spirit is another to keep an eye on now dropped into this type of contest for the first time.

Masham Star - 16:10 Ayr

Masham Star generally keeps classier company than this, and whilst he is yet to properly get going this term, he ran well enough in the Victoria Cup last time to suggest that he's a big threat in much calmer waters here. He's worth another chance, and is fancied to score now dropped to his lowest mark for two years. Sultan Baybars ran with credit at Chester last time out and is the biggest threat, ahead of Zebulon, who ran a big race at a huge price at Wetherby on his most recent start.

Calliope - 17:45 Ayr

Calliope stepped up on her encouraging reappearance run by putting in a career best effort to finish third at Wetherby earlier this month, giving the impression that there should be a race of this nature in her this season at the very least. A reproduction of that run could well be good enough for her to score here, and she gets the vote. Carthage boast the services of top amateur rider Serena Brotherton and is respected, whilst Northern Sky is knocking on the door and can't be discounted off his current mark.
