Ayr up in Bonnie Scotland takes centre stage for a few days in the horse racing world with their Ayr Gold Cup meeting.
The Listed Doonside Cup is the race of the day up at Ayr due off at 3.35. Saeed bin Suroor has an excellent record in this race and his improving handicapper Dubai Horizon arrives off the back of two wins. He won over the trip at Sandown on good-soft last time and won over this C&D on good ground in July before that. This is a step up in class but of the back of those two performances, he is fancied to complete the hat-trick. Underfoot conditions are a bit of an unknown for all of these but the win at Sandown gives me hope this gelding will cope better than the opposition. I am on at 9-2.
