The first selection of the afternoon from Ayr is the Listed Handicap Chase over 2m 1/2f and the horse we think is the value in the field is the Rebecca Menzies trained Sao.
At an each way price the eight year old looks weighted to go well in this event, having been largely consistent in the last 18 months of his career.
Winning back to back races at the end of 2020 off marks of 120 and 125, he then had a run in a jumpers bumper before getting back to winning ways at Wetherby.
Tried in a big fielded Grade Three Handicap at the Grand National meeting off a career high of 138 he just wasn't good enough, with the winner now being a 150s horse.
Seen three more times since then the gelding has come slightly down the handicap after two good seconds at Perth and Aintree and last time out at Doncaster he was fourth of six, but less than four lengths behind the winner.
Now off a mark of 134, which sees him only 1lb higher than his last winning mark, this event produces itself as a race to get back to winning ways in.
