Bets Of The Day: Harmony Bay ready to strike at Wolverhampton
15:30 Ayr – Adam to leave it late in ScotlandTrainer Richard Fahey won this race in 2013 with Flighty Clarets, and he holds a good hand with In My Place in the 15:30 sprint handicap.It took the three-year-old a while to get off the mark, but the application of cheekpieces has perked him up – and he has struck twice with the headgear this season at Redcar and Carlisle.He potentially could be a bit tricky, as he needs to be played very late. Apprentice Adam McNamara (who claims 5lb) has ridden him twice and collected a win and a third, so he’ll know exactly when to make his challenge – and he’ll certainly have plenty of time to get organised at Ayr.
McNamara rode him to win at Carlisle, but he never panicked despite the horse’s position when detached from the pace, and he flew home to win from a mark of 66 in a 0-70 handicap. Incidentally he was matched at higher price of [25.0] in-play.The rider was also on board recently over course and distance. McNamara placed him handier, but he met trouble, which subsequently delayed his challenge. He can make amends today.I also forgive his latest run; he got out too late in a messy affair – and the winner has since gone in again. I think he’s still a young sprinter on the up, and is dangerous on quick ground (which looks his preferred surface) from a mark of 71.
