Aengus looks ready to strike

3.35 Kelso  AENGUS  2pts ew @ 9/1

Jennie Candlish’s Aengus was successful twice in February last season & judging by his third under topweight at Ayr last month, the 8yo is ready to strike again. The yard have a 30% strike rate at Kelso & this is their sole runner here. Keith Dalgleish’s  Mac N Cheese finished 4l behind the selection in that Ayr race & I think it’s over fences that the 8yo’s future lies.  Favourite will undoubtedly be the Rose Dobbin 6yo Planet Nine, following his battling win at Catterick a fortnight ago. My only concern would be that he looked a real stayer that day & this tight track may not play to his strengths. Iain Jardine’s 6yo Bruichladdich was beaten 37l by a 20/1 chance at Haydock last time, but would have every chance on his Ayr second previously. Course form is invaluable here so Nick Alexander’s 10yo Landecker is worth a second look, although he’s been regularly beaten from his current mark. He does hold another course specialist Total Assets on his last CD win however.  Ruth Jefferson’s runner, the 7yo Ryedale Racer, has been beaten on his two attempts at this sort of trip, but has suggested recently that three miles will suit. He’ll love this ground & would be a very poignant winner.
