Ayr Craiganboy

Horse racing - Ayr - 22 Dec 12:30

I was keen on this horse last time out here at Ayr but unfortunately the track failed the inspection and the meeting cancelled, obviously I'm keen to support him back here again. He does switch from fences to hurdles but that shouldn't make any difference.

The trainer said at the start of the season that he expected plenty of improvement from Craiganboy this season, saying "I imagine there will be some improvement to come and he can go from a 109 rated horse to somewhere in the 120’s". That would suggest he's well in here actually running off a mark of 108.

Craiganboy has had 9 of his 16 career starts here at Ayr, all of them of soft or heavy ground. It's fair to say he knows this course well and will have underfoot conditions to suit. He was a course and distance winner in February in heavy ground the same as forecast here.

Brian Hughes is booked to ride and he's got an amazing 43% strike rate for this trainer (9 from 21). For Brian Hughes to be booked suggests a big run is expected. The horse is well treated, loves the ground, loves the track and is fit after one run this season so he does look likely to go well. He was 6/1 last time out and pretty sure it was backed into shorter too, double stakes at 7/1.
