Tommy's Oscar - 14:25 Ayr
Smart Stat: £26.13 - Ann Hamilton's profit to a £1 level stake when having only one runner on the card (hurdles)
Tommy's Oscar is improving all the time over hurdles and showed useful form to bring up his fourth victory of the season at Kelso last month. He was ultimately well on top at the finish on that occasion, leading on the bridle entering the straight and quickly asserting before the last to land the spoils by four and three quarter lengths. A strong-travelling sort, he'll be suited by the test that this race provides and looks sure to give another good account for Ann Hamilton, with a 6 lb higher mark than last time appealing as fair.
Tamaroc du Mathan - 15:00 Ayr
Smart Stat: 3 - Paul Nicholls' number of winners in past 10 runnings
Smart Stat: 21% - Paul Nicholls' strike rate with chasers running between 19f and up to 3m
Tamaroc du Mathan resumed winning ways without needing to improve when stepped up to this trip in the Pendil Novices' Chase at Kempton last time, cruising clear in the straight to win by three and three quarter lengths from Ga Law. This will be tougher under a penalty, but he remains open to more improvement and arrives here fresher than chief market rival Allmankind having missed the other spring festivals. Tamaroc du Mathan commands plenty of respect as a result, representing the Paul Nicholls yard which is seeking its fourth win in this race since 2012.
Memorable Daise - 16:55 Tramore
Smart Stat: 71 - The number of Presenting's progeny that have won their first bumper
Smart Stat: 30% - Mr Patrick Mullins' strike rate when riding in a bumper as their only ride on the card
Memorable Daise represents top connections and makes plenty of appeal on debut, lining up in a bumper where those with previous experience set only a fair standard. She is by Presenting and a sister to winners under Rules, including the useful hurdler/chaser Daisy's Gift and the bumper winner/fairly useful hurdler Present Chief. Patrick Mullins is always worth following when riding for his father Willie in bumpers, so it will be interesting to see whether the market speaks in favour of Memorable Daise.
