Ante-Post Focus
18 Apr 2015

There are two massive handicaps within 20 minutes of each other on Saturday, starting with Newbury's Spring Cup in which AYAAR looks a value alternative to the obvious candidates from the Lincoln meeting.

Ante-Post Focus followers will need no reminding of the five-year-old's abilities as we're still struggling to get over his luckless run in the Royal Hunt Cup last summer, albeit he landed the place money for those who backed him with the quarter-first-five firms.

Luca Cumani's horse travelled like a dream to the furlong pole but just as Frankie Dettori was preparing his race-winning burst he got knocked sideways by the domino effect of Field Of Dream switching sharply right from the rails on route to victory.

Despite being stopped in his tracks, Ayaar managed to pick up again to be beaten just three lengths, leaving little doubt there's a big handicap in him over a mile or back at seven furlongs - the distance of his four victories to date.

The Ascot run suggests strongly it's only a matter of time before he scores over the longer trip and as he came to hand early last season and is ideally suited by good or quicker ground, Newbury offers him a decent chance of getting one on the board quickly.

Although he failed to build on that display in two subsequent starts, there were valid excuses (sweated up badly in the International next time and ground went against him in Turkey) so he's nicely handicapped here off a pound lower mark.

Zarwaan, the bigger-priced of my two Lincoln selections, just missed out on a place after tiring in the closing stages and if he needed that run more than the market suggested (backed from the 20-1 advised into 9s) then he is a major player.

However in the immediate aftermath Ed Dunlop was talking about possibly dropping him back to seven furlongs and that's clearly still on his mind as the gelding is also entered in a conditions race over the shorter trip at Thirsk.

In the circumstances I'd be reluctant to put him up in advance, especially as he's co-favourite in some lists, but if he does turn up at Newbury he's probably worth a saver as Doncaster was his first outing since last July and he might have blown up.

Gabrial, the Lincoln winner, will find life a little tougher off a 6lb higher mark, although he's still 5lb lower than his career-high of two years ago so can't be discounted by any means.

Chatez, successful in the 'consolation' Spring Mile that day, has gone up 7lb, which should prove harder to defy considering he's taking on classier rivals now and the quickening ground is probably not ideal either.

A couple of lightly-raced horses to look out for are Dream Spirit, closely matched with Lincoln third Mooharib on autumn form, and Voice Of A Leader, who showed above-average promise as a juvenile and was restricted to just one backend run last year.

The weekend's other big betting race is the Scottish National and sod's law will doubtless decree that last year's third Trustan Times, tipped here then and on a few other occasions, will finally come good again to add to his Fixed Brush win of two seasons ago.

However, Tim Easterby's 9yo has disappointed too many times with his jumping this season, particularly back over hurdles at Cheltenham last time, so I'm going to give him the 'Spanish Archer' despite the demands of this race clearly suiting him.

Gallant Oscar, Catching On and Sego Success are others prominent in the betting that have let me down, so I've been fishing around at bigger prices and reeled in ROYAL PLAYER as the value selection.

Novices have a really good record in the Ayr marathon and Philip Hobbs's 6yo has been helped greatly by Paul Nicholls' intention to run 162-rated Sam Winner because it keeps him below the 11st mark.

The gelding is taking a big step up in class, distance and rating from his most recent win at Musselburgh in the New Year but he won that like a horse destined for much bigger things and went off 11-2 second favourite for the Skybet Chase won by his even more promising stablemate If In Doubt.

Royal Player went out like a light that day, so I'm happy to put a line through it as something was obviously amiss, and it's interesting that Hobbs has kept him back for this rather than go somewhere like Newbury or Cheltenham over three miles.

Presumably he wouldn't be bringing him back so late in the season if he wasn't happy with him and the fact that he's pitching him straight back into the big time suggests he thinks he's got a major staying prize in him off his revised mark.
