Jockey Daryl Jacob has only ever ridden for trainer Dan Skelton on two separate occasions and he looks to make it third time lucky when they team up with No Hassle Hoff at Ayr this afternoon. The six year old returns after an encouraging 4th placed effort list time out. A step up in trip looks to be a positive step forward and with a recent run under his belt he’s bound to improve upon the run at Sandown. This looks potentially an easier race and if No Hassle Hoff has improved as expected he should take all the beating here.
Uppertown Prince and Kalahari Queen look the only possible dangers to our selection however Uppertown Prince may need the run after a 230 day lay off and Kalahari Queen was beaten in a less competitive race last month. A decent enough contest but one that No Hassle Hoff really should be winning.
NO HASSLE HOFF (WIN) – NAP
