13:20 Ayr: Timeform preview and free Race Pass

One of the most interesting races at Ayr on Monday is the three-mile handicap chase (13:20) that has a prize fund of £15,000 and has attracted eight declarations. Up Helly Aa King is a non-runner but his trainer Nick Alexander can still rely on Ned Tanner (136) who tops Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings following his promising effort at Kelso last time.
Ned Tanner was beaten a length and a quarter in second but left the impression he should have won given the ground he made up after conceding first run to the all-the-way winner and meeting with interference at the second-last. That eyecatching performance - which earned Ned Tanner the Horse In Focus Flag - came over just shy of two and three-quarter miles, but his two wins over fences have been achieved over a similar trip to this, so he should be fine with the stiffer test.
The continued good form of the Nick Alexander stable (has the Hot Trainer Flag) is a factor in his favour and he ought to launch a bold bid off a mark just 1 lb higher than last time.
