Ayr – Report 24th July 2023

Gordon Brown – Race Reporter

Gordon has a wealth of experience of racing through his background in the written and broadcast media. His current principle role is reporting and supporting the scene in Scotland on Racing TV and relaying the latest news with Scottish angles.

SEE MY BABY JIVE, trained by Donald Whillans, won for the third consecutive Monday at Ayr and the Hawick mare will return for a four-timer next week.

Ridden for the first time by Danny Tudhope, the 9-2 joint-favourite stormed up the stands’ rail to see off gambled-on Irish raider Pretty Boy Floyd by three-quarters of a length.

Whillans’ son and assistant Callum said: “There is another race with identical conditions next Monday and the chances are she will be back for more. She is in unbelievable form and coming up that rail certainly suits her.”

Iain Jardine completed a double with Borough and JKR Cobbler and there was more Scottish success with Darragh Bourke-trained Gainbourg in the concluding Class 5 mile handicap.
