Gerry The Glover has been knocking on the door of late and is strongly fancied at 9/2 to gain a deserved success in the 3.30 at Ayr today now eased in grade.
Brian Ellison’s charge went down by hust a head when third to Eternal in a class 4 contest at Beverley and backed that up with a head second to Auspicion in a similar grade affair at Newcastle 16 days ago off a mark of 75.
Altouggh now 2lb higher in the weights he is still 7lb lower than when last succesful in a class 4 contest at Newcastle back in June 2015.
It makes him well-treated on the pick of his form, especially now dropped down into class 5 company.
He is 1-1 in the grade and with Ben Robinson in the saddle taking off another 5lb with his claim this looks a great opportunity for Gerry The Glover to belatedly get his head back in front where it matters.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Gerry The Glover (9/2 bet365, Coral, Ladbrokes – BOG)
