Who will be top weight in this race? Most of those at the top of the weights ran at Aintree or are novices. Anyone know what is the highest rated intended runner? The fav Rival D'estruval looks to have a big chance but could be close to top weight on the day. Any thoughts?

I think leave it till the 5 days are out, it's a complete guessing game at this stage. Quite a few may run after Aintree, but they won't even have decided yet.

Weights now updated on RP following re-assessment of runners last week.

Purely guesswork on my part at this stage, but it looks to me like Auroras Encore on his new mark of 148 is likely to be top weight should he turn up as I just don't see any of those above him appearing at Ayr. However, there must be a doubt that he will take his chance off the revised mark following his exersions last weekend. That would leave Houblon Des Obeaux (148) as next likely top weight but as a 6yo novice would he take his chance? You are then probably looking at Our Mick (145) or Silver by Nature (145) who is ground dependant so a significant weight shift may be on the cards here. 

I have backed Problema Tic who ran fairly well at Aintree last weekend and who looks as though he has been laid out for this for his Scottish owners and also King Fontaine who will benefit greatly from a rise in the weights and is likely to be running here off a mark at least 10lb lower than when 3rd in the race last year.
Report flyingbolt April 11, 2013 4:06 PM BST
If Problema Tic had been "laid out" for this I doubt they would have subjected him to such a hard race last week.Having said that if he hadn't run there he would have been near the top of my list.

Problema Tic doesn't look as if he stays to me. Kings Fontaine is well handicapped on his last run here and did at least show signs of life last time. However if it's G/S or worse I would fancy the one in front to confirm the form. Good or better I'll probably have to back Kings Fontaine, provided he gets in.

Wont get any more information for a preference, then what they have shown in their past races to date. How else would you know? If they've not shown a preference that would be because they don't have one.

What are the chances of White Star Line staying this distance on pedigree? I'm no expert but Uncle Junior would seem to give hope he would and he has been staying/keeping on at the end of his races. Cloudy Too and Fruity O Rooney have given the Cheltenham form a solid look to it and think he will go close off his weight if he does stay.

I wasn't aware of the Weight 'button' - and that by clicking on it - it adjusted the order. Thanks for pointing it out to me.
My point is - why not display the race ( as its a handicap) in its proper order( i.e weight). What relevance/point is there in having it Alphabetic Order. It eventually gets displayed in the right way nearer the day of the race, so why not show it beforehand ( as do all other publications/sites)?

I don't understand the price of Always right, using Merigo who was a pretty decent yardstick than Auororas Encore is 4lb better off here yet is 3 times the price. He has form on soft ground too, Admittedly I don't know how many GN winners have attempted this double but one of the prices looks wrong. They are both carrying a much heavier weight then last time they attempted this race.

There doesn't seem to be many low weighted horses that like good ground and stay to me. Bradley was one of them. Pulling up and lack of a recent run does go against the trends but the trainer is in good form recently and the jockey has a 33% strike rate over chases this season so I'm guessing he is decent!

I'll wait to see if it is good ground tomorrow but will be backing him if it is.

Backed Lively Baron but have a feeling he will run like a blind camel.

As has been said, not a great result for trends but all credit to the impressive winner who could be very useful if he gets his conditions.

Ayr is a strange track that can be a swamp or dry out very quickly as it's on a breezy sea coast.

Lessons to be learned...Don't pile in all guns blazing a week or so before the race on relatively short priced probable runners.

At Ayr, especially at this time of the season, anything can happen (and usually does).

What happened?!

I've only just got in.

Looked on SL for result... only 7 finishers!

None of mine got round!

Going to watch the replay... hope they're all alright.

Most were just pulled up.

Strange sort of race full of pretty average horses who never got into it really.
Report Makybe_Diva April 20, 2013 6:12 PM BST
Crazy

All the horses looked alright, thankfully.

I hope the jockey being treated was ok. Does anyone know?

Yes, it was a strange race.

Really disappointed that Lively Baron fell.
