A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner on the flat at Ayr, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 714 mile round trip.
The trainer in question is Archie Watson who boasts a 22% strike rate with his horses travelling at least this distance; he holds an 18% strike rate and 53% place rate from 28 runners at Ayr (5-10-28).
His runner, Throne Hall, was on a poor run of form prior to bouncing back last time out at York over 1m4f, going down by ¾ of a length, 4 lengths clear of the 3rd home.
The 5YO has been raised 3lbs in the handicap for that effort, however given he has placed off marks of 98 in the past, he current rating of 95 appears an attainable one.
The in-form Hollie Doyle (22% last 14 days) takes over in the saddle and her mount is raised an extra furlong in trip today, which may prove to be the key in getting this horse back in the winners enclosure.
