Here's the full detail on Planet Sport three highlighted top tips for Ayr races.

13.00 Ayr - Fonzerelli 

The in-form Rebecca Menzies team might be among the winners at Ayr, with Fonzerelli of clear interest in the opening Join Racing TV Now EBF Mares' "National Hunt" Novices' Hurdle (13.00).

The daughter of Schiaparelli ran a hugely encouraging race on her first start for current connections when second in a Carlisle bumper in late October.

After finishing fourth at the same venue on her next start, Fonzerelli made her jumping debut at Wetherby on Boxing Day and filled the runner-up spot once more.

While she was no match for the runaway winner Galia Des Liteaux, she was nicely clear of the remainder and a race such as this should be well within her compass.

14.00 Ayr - Democratic Oath

Democratic Oath gets the verdict in the Join Racing TV Now Novices' Handicap Chase following an encouraging first run over fences.

Sandy Thomson's seven-year-old led for a long way and jumped pretty well in the main before fading into third place behind Pay The Piper.

There may only have been four runners, but that was his first start for Thomson following his move from Keith Dalgleish's yard and he was also returning from a 242-day absence. More improvement can be expected.

15.30 Ayr - Burn The Evidence

Gordon Elliott's Burn The Evidence should prove hard to beat in the Book For The Coral Scottish Grand National Open National Hunt Flat Race.

The five-year-old has been placed twice in Ireland, behind The Nice Guy at Fairyhouse and Dorans Weir at Thurles.

That looks strong form given The Nice Guy and Dorans Weir filled the first two places in a bumper at Leopardstown's Christmas Festival.

This looked a gilt-edged opportunity for Burn The Evidence to make it third time lucky.
