16:45 Ayr – Weekend Offender (BEST ODDS 3/1 with Bet Victor)
Weekend Offender ran a very good race over this trip and course last time out. He’s only three pounds higher for that effort and he certainly looks to be an improving sort. His trainer has been on fire over the last fortnight, so that’s definitely a plus. It also helps that this horse is a multiple winner on the predicted going conditions. This is something that he has over the main danger in the field and the market, Kentucky Connection, who is unproven on the ground and over the trip. I was surprised that Weekend Offender wasn’t shorter in the betting after having analysed the racecard. At the prices, and considering that the two aforementioned horses are on the same mark now, I am definitely happy backing Weekend Offender. He’s got a lot going for him, and I’m hoping that these optimum conditions help him to a win at Ayr on Monday.
