Ayr best bet: Course-distance winner Highwaygrey to find winning touch

There's a cracking card of Flat racing on Wednesday and the Tipstrr pundits have been attracted to the penultimate race at the Scottish track.

16:55 Ayr: Download The Fitzdares App Now Handicap (1 mile 2 furlongs)

Short-priced favourite Born Ruler will be hoping to rule this race and Sir Mark Prescott's gelding has been in strong form. 

A second upon return on the all-weather at Lingfield last time out backed up a good run of form last season, where he claimed a first win on his first outing on Turf at Sandown over the same distance. 

Despite his good form his odds of 7/4 don't give you much profit as well as that others in this field have more experience on turf. 

The experienced Jean Baptiste could give Born Ruler a run for his money. 

Roger Fell & Sean Murray's charge has been hitting the post so far this season, with both of his outings since returning from his break yielding second-placed finishes including one over this course and distance.

Despite that our selection is course-distance winner Highwaygrey, who is looking to return to the winning trail.

Last time out he was fifth at Ripon when returning after a winter break.

Prior to that break he had won on the all-weather at Newcastle and had frame finishes at Redcar, Carlisle, Pontefract and Haydock.

Tim Easterby's eight-year-old may be getting older but has a good record at this course, boasting a course-distance win here in 2022 along with a frame finish.

David Allan is aboard Highwaygrey, which is a solid booking as he had success with Easterby on Monday at Redcar, securing two winners and a third-placed finish.

With odds of 13/2 Highwaygrey has the potential to shock the favourite and give you a nice profit.



Suggested bet: Highwaygrey in the 16:55 at Ayr
