Tuesday's Ayr racing tips: Rez and Love De Vega look to be well worth backing

Planet Sport tipsters are in Scotland for Tuesday afternoon's meeting at Ayr on September 27 and have some tasty selections for you.

Here's a quick snapshot of Planet Sport's tips, with a bit of extra detail on our highlighted horses below that. You can follow all the latest racecards and results using our live centre at Ayr.

Selections (all Ayr):

13.14 Hartswood

13.44 Rez

14.19 Pearl Of Qatar

14.54 Love De Vega

15.29 Flying Pursuit

16.04 Langholm


17.10 Scottish Dancer

13.44 Rez

Rez should make it third time lucky in the Virgin Bet Maiden Stakes.

A full brother to the smart Happy Romance, Rez showed plenty of promise on his initial run at Wolverhampton, making up plenty of ground to finish fourth.

He was expected to be among the leading lights on his second attempt, again over six furlongs, at Pontefract earlier this month.

He swooped late to grab the lead, but Hougoumont launched his challenge even later and grabbed the glory by a short head, but a repeat of that should surely be good enough to get Rez off the mark for Richard Fahey.

14.54 Love De Vega

Love De Vega is the pick in the Virgin Bet Handicap following a narrow defeat at Ascot on his most recent start.

The three-year-old made a late start to the campaign, returning with a win at the end of July and despite a slightly disappointing next run, he still looks very firmly on the upgrade.

Beaten three-quarters of a length in a competitive heat at Ascot, Love De Vega perhaps did not quite get home over a stiff seven furlongs, with a strong early pace ensuring it was a pretty good test.

The handicapper has left him on an unchanged mark of 86 following that third place, which could prove lenient for Charlie and Mark Johnston's contender.


First Impression can notch a third win from four visits to Ayr in the Virgin Bet Free Bets For Winners Handicap at Ayr.

John Quinn's five-year-old was rated 85 when last striking gold here a couple of years ago and returns 5lb lower in the weights.

He has been dropped 1lb since his most recent outing here a couple of weeks ago, when beaten just a couple of lengths into fourth place, and any rain would aid his cause.
