Ayr Gold Cup Betting Preview And Tips

Posted: Friday, 21st September 2018

A monster field of 25 sprinters will head to the 6f start for the Ayr Gold Cup, which takes centre stage on Saturday afternoon, and Son Of Rest is currently the prominent figure in the latest Ayr Gold Cup Odds, but there will be a whole host of notable speedsters lining up in what should be a devilishly difficult betting heat for punters.

Son Of Rest to win    Best Bet 11/2

Ayr Gold Cup Odds

Second in the Group 1 Flying Five Stakes, Son Of Rest is entitled to be a warm 11/2 favourite with BetVictor for this prize, and if he can replicate that sort of performance then the Irish raider could prove to be a cut above his rivals here in the 2018 Ayr Gold Cup. The four-year-old will have no problems with the rain-softened ground on Saturday, and with top-notch form in the book he can outclass his rivals off a favourable mark.

Richard Fahey always unleashes a strong team in this contest and Growl (9/1) and George Bowen (22/1) will be a leading brace of contenders for that Flat sprint king, while Flying Pursuit is another prominent figure in the betting and the Tim Easterby-trained sprinter has to be a major player and is worthy of an each-way bet at 12/1 with Ladbrokes.

David Barron's Gunmetal has won three of his last five starts, so is a real model of consistency in top notch races, so is another worthy of a mention towards the head of the betting and the 14/1 with Betfair Sportsbook is fair, while Golden Apollo has form with Flying Pursuit, and while will need to turn the form around from their last meetings marks decent value at 16/1 with BetVictor.

Ayr Gold Cup Tips

Most punters will be looking to snap up any each-way value available, but Son Of Rest could just prove to be a class above all his rivals, so it's much more attractive to be him to win rather than look for a 16/1 shot from an each-way perspective in Saturday's showpiece event.

With such a bumper field there are some eye-catching runners at huge prices and Naadirr (28/1 with William Hill) can produce the goods when at his best, while Baron Bolt at 33/1 with Paddy Power is another huge priced contender that could put up a bold effort.
