Ingleby Hollow is a solid performer at this level and has been holding his form well since switching back to the flat from a short spell over hurdles, posting a win and two close seconds in recent months. He split a couple of subsequent winners when second at Doncaster last time out and was staying on strongly at the finish so as a previous winner over course and distance he will benefit from the extra furlong he encounters today and should be capable of victory.
R Michael Smith tends to find most of his stable winners here at Ayr and boasts a healthy level stakes profit of +£51.50 here in the last three years, so his runners An Fear Ciuin and Hillgrove Angel could be worth a follow, while Wor Lass showed that age is just a number when the ten-year-old won at Musselburgh earlier in the month and the three-time course and distance winner rates as the main danger despite a 2lbs rise.
