FORM WARNING FROM DAQMAN: Daqman says: It’s tough enough at this time of year, with Flat form not settled and Jumps horses at the end of a long season. But this weekend we have the spectacle of one trainer, Willie Mullins, saturating the cards with multiple entries and another, Dan Skelton, with runners who were at Aintree only eight days ago. Good luck with that!

SKELTON TO BAG BIG AYR PRIZE

⭕ 2.50 Ayr today A blank day yesterday in the battle for the trainers’ title over Jumps. Willie Mullins doesn’t join in until tomorrow.

But I fancy Dan Skelton to fly further ahead of Paul Nicholls with Jet Plane in this handicap chase.

Skelton has no peers when it comes to placing his horses and, though Jet Plane won twice beyond 3m last year, he has been dropped to 2m 4f the last twice to land a double.

It won’t be plain sailing for the hat-trick here only nine days on from scoring at Market Rasen but he won as he liked that day, eased down.

This is a £28k prize worth having in the title race and Skelton also sends out Heltenham, beaten only eight days ago in an Aintree two-miler but back to his best trip here; he included a Grade 3 in his back-to-back wins at the distance in March.

When Outlaw Pete won at Kempton in March, Paul Nicholls said he needed better ground, so I wonder whether Ayr soft will suit.

⭕ 3.20 Ayr Nicky Henderson landed a hat-trick this week after returning to form with a double at Aintree.

Doddiethegreat found Cheltenham Grade 3 above him, though not disgraced in the Coral Cup. Well backed this morning, returning to class 2.

Betdaq Betting Exchange 2.50 Ayr 5 Jet Plane, 15.5 Heltenham; 3.20 Ayr 2.82 Doddiethegreat


MULLINS BEST IS MACDERMOTT

⭕ 3.35 Ayr tomorrow (Scottish Grand National) Among 18 runners on the day at Ayr tomorrow, Willie Mullins tries to hit the Scottish National for six.

That’s two fewer starters than in the Aintree National last Saturday. Ayr big race prizes from first to sixth (£28k or £600 or a combination of places) could decide the trainers’ title.

Mr Incredible The Mullins octet won him the Liverpool race with I Am Maximus, but also the wooden spoon when Mr Incredible dwelt at the start then contrived to get himself hampered twice before unseating.

I hear of a betting-shop punter who backed Shishkin and scribbled on the betting slip under his stake ‘if in the mood.’

There are more sophisticated ways on BETDAQ: lay Mr Incredible or see how he starts before you back him, or both.. you have the entire race to play in. He hasn’t won now since November, 2021.

Macdermott He had struggled until raised in trip to the Fairyhouse 3m, when he ran away with the it, scoring 12 lengths on heavy.

He is by the sire of Protektorat, Djakadam, Fastorslow, Burrows Saint, and a heap of other good horses.

Klarc Kent No superman of a horse, but a ‘heavy-ground winter type,’ says the yard. Tries more than 3m for the first time but lightly weighted.

Ontheropes Not won a race since his sole chase success in autumn, 2021. Has slipped down the handicap.

Spanish Harlem Has never yet raced beyond 2m 4f but is only six; by the same sire as El Fabiolo.

We’llhavewan Second in the Punchestown National trial and sixth in the Irish Grand National itself. Likes to be up with the pace and looks the Mullins second best to Macdermott.


PROVIDENCE DAY FOR MURPHY

⭕ 1,000 GUINEAS: Probably the best Newmarket pointer for the fillies’ Classic was a Guineas racecourse gallop by Karl Burke’s Moyglare winner, Fallen Angel, this week.

On the track, Dance Sequence wobbled in the Dip, still green, but her Nell Gwyn conqueror, Pretty Crystal, is a 7f filly without a Guineas entry.

⭕ 2,000 GUINEAS: City of Troy seemingly has nothing to fear from yesterday’s Craven Stakes, won by Haatem in a fast time; he was twice beaten more than six lengths by City of Troy as a two-year-old.

⭕ 3.12 Newbury Tomorrow’s Fred Darling (fillies) and Greenham (colts) are last-chance saloon for any change in the Guineas markets.

Meanwhile trainer and jockey of the moment on the Flat this week are Richard Hannon and Sean Levey, the Haatem combination.

Whereas the winning form on show in this 3yo race is AW, Hannon and Levey went close with Sam Hawkens at Goodwood in the autumn on the soft ground he’ll get at Newbury today. BETDAQ 8.8 taken.

⭕ 3.45 Newbury Oisin Murphy is back with six rides at Newbury and his best chance may be Grand Providence, winner of the Cesarewitch Trial in September, his eighth consecutive race in the frame (three of them as winner). BETDAQ 4.2

⭕ 4.15 Newbury Clive Cox goes for a hat-trick in this race with a winter AW winner at Kempton, Get The Music On, eased right down that day.

Richard Hannon and Sean Levey scored at Doncaster (soft) in the autumn with Circe, who tackled Dance Sequence in the Oh So Sharp Stakes (Group 3) after that. Both Circe and Get The Music On were 9.9 on BETDAQ this morning.
