Best bet for the horse racing at Ayr Wednesday 22nd May

Up at Ayr on Wednesday it is their Tennent's Raceday and I assume a pint or two of the Scottish lager will be downed during the afternoon. According to their website Tennent’s Lager contains only 100% Scottish barley, the finest hops and the freshest water from Loch Katrine – so now you know.

The race of the day is at 4.05 and is the 1m2f Listed Tennent's Lager British Stallion Studs EBF Rothesay Stakes. The Roger Varian trained Shenanigans has placed-up four times in eight attempts at Listed and Group level at distances between 1m and 1m2f on Turf and All-Weather surfaces. Could the five-year-old finally secure that winning black type connections must crave? Stall one is no bad thing for one that likes to run prominently and I think stepping back up in trip is a plus – see her run at Doncaster in November. Get on at 5-4 with Hills BPG overnight, hopefully, she will pay for a pint.
