Leg 1

Ayr

Bergerac

Hurricane Ivor was one of a few of these in behind the lovable veteran Copper Knight at York, finishing strongly in third. While the winner that day is now 6lb higher, William Haggas’ charge lines up here off an unchanged rating. The 4yo is arguably open to more improvement than many of these in here, with Jawwaal who is closely matched on that Knavesmire run well beaten in this race off a lower mark 12 months ago. Hurricane Ivor looked like he didn’t quite see out 6f in the Stewards Cup at Goodwood, and was drawn away from all the main action at Ascot when narrowly denied by Royal meeting winner Significantly, so is due a big sprint handicap win.


Leg 2

Ayr

Scot's Grace

This looks to be a straightforward shoot-out between the two ‘A’s at the top of the betting, Alignak and Alounak. The former won this race last term, capping off a progressive campaign, but hasn’t been seen since. Alounak, however, has been in great form over the summer of 2021. Third in the Ebor last time out, he was an impressive winner of the Old Newton Cup three starts ago at Haydock. Rated 110, the same figure as his main rival, Andrew Balding’s charge has run to Racing Post Ratings of 114 on two of his last three outings, so might just be able to eke out a bit more than his returning competitor.


Leg 3

Newbury

Aramaic

Course form at Chester can be a great pointer to success, and with form figures of 11223 on the Roodee, Hochfeld clearly acts at the venue. Jonny Peate’s 7lb claim is also another major positive, with the gelding’s rating already below the figure he placed off in both the Northumberland Plate and the Chester Cup this term. His run in the Old Borough Cup was better than the bare result suggests, with Joe Fanning easing his mount up in the final half-furlong, having been denied a clear run up the rail late on. Despite that, he was still beaten less than 4l, and could be weighted for a better run at a more suitable venue.


Leg 4

Ayr

Popmaster

Finding one to take on the hot St Leger favourite on with might be wise in the Win pools in order to secure some value, but in the Scoop6 we want the most likely winner. Hurricane Lane has improved leaps and bounds with each run this term, from his Dante victory, to his third placed Derby finish at Epsom before two Group 1 successes in Ireland and France. By Frankel, who’s imparting plenty of stamina onto his offspring, and out of a two-miler, a step up in trip should suit on his breeding.


Leg 5

Gubbass

Newbury

Noel Meade’s charge couldn’t go with the principals when the pace quickened in the Royal Whip over 10f in the Royal Whip, so this step back up in trip looks ideal. His win at Listed level at Roscommon before that further certifies that thought. He gave weight and a beating to multiple horses rated similar or in excess of his current mark of 100. That win saw him reverse the form with Haparanda who got the better of him when they met over Saturday’s course and distance in October, showing he’s improved since that defeat off a mark of 89. Haparanda came out and won a Listed race at Galway last month, so the form looks strong.


Leg 6

Ayr

Revich

Formerly trained by John Gosden, Riot was third in the Buckingham Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on his final start for his UK handler. Switching to Johnny Murtagh, that’s some strong form to bring across the Irish Sea. The winner that day, Highfield Princess has since held her own in Listed and Group races, while runner-up Danyah took the International Handicap next time out, with plenty of big runs from others in behind since. Riot’s debut in Ireland was not devoid of promise, finishing well from off the pace behind a couple of decent sprinters in a 6f event at Dundalk. Off the same mark and up in trip again, he’s a real contender here.
