Today's Horse Racing Tips: Espoir to relish Ayr test

Espoir Moriviere has a great chance of winning over hurdles at Ayr.
Espoir Moriviere has a great chance of winning over hurdles at Ayr.

Oldgrangewood (advised at 8/1) ran really well at Aintree yesterday and looked the likely winner with two to jump. However, he made a mess of the final fence and weakened on the run in to finish fourth. He is sure to come on for the run and should remain competitive in similar races.

There are two bets for today’s racing.

Ayr Tip

15:25 – 3m½f Ayr Racecourse Sunday Market Handicap Hurdle (Class 5)

With most of these runners yet to win a race, ESPOIR MORIVIERE (1 point win bet at 7/2) looks to have been found a good opportunity to record a second career success. Rose Dobbin’s six-year-old was a comfortable 4.25-length winner at Wetherby when last seen in March, and that form has been franked by the third-placed horse winning next time out. As a horse that tends to get a little outpaced in his races, he should appreciate today’s testing conditions, so the more rain that falls at Ayr the better! 

Redcar Tip

16:10 – 6f Watch Race Replays At Apprentice Handicap (Class 6)

This looks to be between the three market leaders with preference for the last-time-out winner ROUND THE ISLAND (NAP – 1 point win bet at 3/1). After a string of placed efforts, Richard Whitaker’s seven-year-old bolted up in a higher grade at Pontefract a week ago. He is only 4 lb higher today, will encounter soft ground again and is well drawn in stall seven.
