KHELMAN scored over course and distance in between a couple of outings over 7f. Richard Fahey's charge gets the vote competing off only a 2lb higher mark today. Economic Crisis saves her best for this track though four of her five course wins have been over the minimum trip. Stablemates Monel and Goninodaethat are also course specialists having won a combined total of nine times at Ayr including at the same meeting on Monday. Both carry a penalty and Baron Run could prove a bigger danger as he landed a double over track and trip last year and is now back on a winning mark.
