Ayr Racecourse manages to capture regular attendance from the best trainers, jockeys, and horses in the sport. And the next meeting is this Thursday (21 May). As a turf course, the going can change regularly, but it appears as if the going will be soft (good to soft in places) for the eight races.
The spotlight of today’s free horse racing naps will be the 17:10 Tennent’s Lager Handicap, which is set to feature 11 runners. Ahead of the race, Sky Sports has Fray pegged as the clear favourite at 4/1. On form, the four-year-old has two victories in its past six races.
Russian Realm has been given odds of 11/2, making the five-year-old the second favourite. However, this is surprising because Russian has not even managed a third-place finish in its past eight races. After considering form, Fray appears to be the better option.
