COVIGLIA is ready to put in a winning performance in the Ayrshire Cancer Support Handicap (5.25).
Michael Dods' gelding finished a horse taking its second race in succession eight days ago.
The selection was just a neck behind the winner, in the course and distance handicap, running on at the finish.
The handicapper has kept him on the same mark and cheekpieces may eke out a little more improvement, which can prove very useful in races of this grade.
REBEL REDEMPTION also makes plenty of appeal at Ayr, in the Weddings At Western House Hotel Handicap (3.05).
The four-year-old took a 15-runner handicap at Thirsk most recently, his first triumph on turf.
A rise of 4lb does not look beyond him, as he previously scored off a mark of 65 (on 61 now) at Newcastle in January 2020.
Over jumps, POKARI can reach the number one spot in the Follow AtTheRaces On Twitter Handicap Hurdle (2.55).
A winner over track and trip last summer, he warmed up for this assignment with a third place at the track.
Sent off at 18-1 that day, his backers have returned and this is a winnable race.
