Baysbrown seems set fair for a good Ayr day
Baysbrown should go well in the Racing UK Free For A Month Handicap Hurdle at Ayr. Trained in Cumbria by Nicky Richards, the six-year-old has been on the go all summer and has held his form really well.
An impressive winner at Perth in September, Baysbrown then showed he still has plenty beneath the bonnet at Carlisle.
He finished second at his local track, but had travelled ominously well from the front until he clouted the last hurdle.
That allowed Bourne the opportunity to seize control along the run-in, with Baysbrown three and a quarter lengths away in second.
He has gone up another 4lb for this latest assignment, but he is clearly still progressing nicely and ought to be up for the job.
Outrage can triumph when he lines up at Kempton.
The four-year-old gelding was well fancied in a solid five-furlong handicap at Chelmsford last month, but finished fourth, beaten by Silvanus.
The 32Red Handicap is a step up in grade, but not beyond him.
Trainer Daniel Kubler will rightly approach this next challenge confident of a big run.
