Speedy Senorita is a previous course and distance winner and MICKY MAC looks interesting running in the first time cheek-pieces whilst The Bear is looking to recapture the pick of his form to contend. The pick won earlier this year at Nottingham on fast ground and although disappointing since then it is interesting that he is tried at Ayr for the first time. Cheek-pieces are applied to the selection and if he finds any improvement for them then he could be hard to beat. Linda Perratt puts forward The Bear to tackle the Ayr course again. His efforts at this course over this sort of trip last year were poor and although he has put in a winning run this year at Musselburgh we avoid him given his difficulties in the past here. Tenancy has shown his best performances with cut in the ground and if the ground plays in to his favour then he could challenge for a first win since 2008. However we side with Micky Mac to pick up the win.
