Ayr Gold Cup Betting Tips

3:50pm Ayr – Ayr Gold Cup Tips (Handicap)

The Ayr Gold Cup is one of the highlights of the Scottish Flat season. Top speedy progressive handicappers are challenging for the valuable 6f prize. Saturday’s renewal will see a field of 25 with the betting market that is very competitive indeed.

At 11/2 with BetVictor we find the favourite: Ger Lyons-trained Buffer Zone. This horse will carry a 6lb penalty after winning at the Curragh last week. We believe there is room for additional improvement and surely the Irish raider is the one to beat in the Ayr Gold Cup.

David O’Meara will try to repeat the success he had in this race with Louis The Pious a few seasons ago. He will be represented by Gulliver which can be backed at 8/1 with Paddy Power. Despite the price is interesting, we need to remember that he was well beaten by Buffer Zone at Curragh last week. It is unlikely that he will turn around the form on Saturday.

Despite the price is interesting, we need to remember that he was well beaten by Buffer Zone at Curragh last week. It is unlikely that he will turn around the form on Saturday. 

O’Meara will also be in contention with Summerghand, which is an 8/1 chance with 888Sport. This horse has been very consistent but has always found one or two better than him. We expect more or less the same will happen at Ayr. 

Moving down in the betting market, we find Kevin Ryan’s Major Jumbo, which is at 16/1 with BetVictor. He will have top weight to carry so not an appealing option even only for an each-way bet. Recent Sandown winner Justanotherbottle at 20/1 with BetVictor adds depth in what is going to be a very competitive affair. 

2:55pm Newbury – Mill Reef Stakes Tips (Group 2)

Roger Varian will be represented here by Pierre Lapin. He is the half-brother of a former winner of this contest Harry Angel. Add to that, Pierre Lapin has won impressively on debut. This outstanding juvenile is the 3/1 favourite with William Hill to win Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury. The last time he was seen was around 120 days ago when winning at Haydock on his debut. If he can perform similarly, then it should be the one to beat on this 2019 renewal of the Mill Reef Stakes.

Mystery Power which is at 100/30 with William Hill has already landed a Group 2 win and looks particularly interesting here also considering the value. After winning the Superlative Stakes, Richard Hannon’s trainee was defeated by star two-year-old Pinatubo in the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. He surely has what it takes to get back to winning ways even though he does have a penalty. 

Melotru, Shand and Impressor are available respectively at 6/1 (bet365), 7/1 (Paddy Power) and 8/1 (bet365). Everything is possible, but it is very unlikely any of those will breakthrough here considering the classy performers they are up against.
