Colder again this morning, showers & sunshine and the wind still in the East where is has been for several weeks now, a return to more seasonally normal westerlies but pressure still high so not much rain about.

Ground just on the soft side of good at Ayr today and we have two runners, both in the 3.05, Andhaar (Blair Campbell) and Bracing (Kit), both 2nd in the two divisions of this race last year and both appear in good form so it’s no surprise they take each other on today, they should both run well but Andhaar likely to strip slightly fitter after a short break whereas Bracing has been off since early January so will improve more for the run; ground should suit both well, Lucy rides Premier Grand Crus in the 3.35 for James Ewart.

Heilan Rebel was disappointing at Kelso on Saturday, he’s been in good fettle at home but in his racing he seems to travel well but be unable to quicken at the crucial stage of the race, he then stays on again, very frustrating.
