Verdict

Burwynd Boy is a specialist over this trip at Ayr but he's gone well here in the past and isn't too badly treated despite having won two of his last three. Ryedale Dancer is just 2lb higher than when scoring here last time though the ground was soft that day and those conditions won't prevail here. Windygoul Lad ploughed through the mud at Hamilton to land a 6f handicap and he'll be a threat if handling today's faster ground but Iceblast is looking high in the weights with just one victory from 22 starts to his credit. DOLLY DIVA had been disappointing before bouncing back to form over the C&D last month where she was only a length behind Lolita Lebron at the finish. That was only her sixth start and with further progress expected she can gain her first success.
