Scottish National Day @ Ayr

The last of the big jumps days of the season is tomorrow at Ayr - Scottish Champion Hurdle and Scottish National are to be contested.

I'm going to take a look at 3 races on the card. 1st being the Future Champion Chase - Paul Nicholls has a great record in this race, seven year olds have won 4 out of the last ten making them the most prolific age group and favourites have been very successful recently.

2.40 - Nolan win €50 @ 1.38

Next is the Scottish Champion Hurdle, some well raced horses line up and I'm looking for something lightly raced for a place. Penzance is a good horse, won the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham and has had a good but light campaign this season.

3.00 - Penzance €50 place @ 1.4

Scottish National is next, I've drawn a line through anything not aged 8, needs to have at least placed last time out and run over 3 miles 3.

3.40 - Halcon Genelardias €25 place @ 3.15 & Leading Man €25 place @ 5.1

Good Luck folks....I'll be back on for Punchestown next week then it gets serious with the 2000 Guineas on the 2nd of May.
