So Ayr racecourse is still in Great Britain. Jolly good. It's a marvellous course and on Saturday stages the big field handicaps, the Ayr Silver and the Ayr Gold Cup.
These huge field races require some luck in running for horses and jockeys. The races are over and done with so fast, there is little margin for error.
If a jockey gets blocked in, there is little time to find an opening. The best horse often does not win races such as the Ayr Gold Cup.
I like betting on a couple each way in such races. At double . . .
