MEGALEKA started her winning run on Polytrack in February from a mark of 55 and is now 30lb higher after scoring five times, including a hat-trick on Turf. She's run very well on her two latest starts and with her regular rider claiming 5lb she's taken to gain victory number six of the year. Mutafaakir scored here last June and has subsequently won three times at Ayr so he has to be a threat along with Cruise Tothelimit, who just failed to catch Rich Again at Haydock last week. Red Baron didn't have much chance at Newcastle but his close second to Robot Boy at Musselburgh puts him in the picture along with Silvanus, who beat him a neck on the Edinburgh track in April.
