Gentleman de Mai - 12:35 Ayr
Flags: Horse In Focus, Timeform Top Rated, Hot Trainer
Gentleman de Mai is a staying chaser of the future and shaped encouragingly in the circumstances when fifth on his reappearance at Kelso a few weeks ago. He was almost forced into handicaps after just one run over hurdles 13 months previously and lacked the necessary experience, as well as pace, in a race where they didn't go much of a gallop early on. He was doing his best work on the run-in even after taking a strong hold, finishing with running left around eight lengths behind the winner. He should have a bigger effort in the locker when the emphasis is more on stamina and a BHA mark of 103 is unlikely to prove beyond him another day. Today could be his chance for Rose Dobbin, particularly with the yard in such good heart (67% of horses running to form).
