ZWAYYAN can take a starring role at Ayr by lifting the feature Parkdean Resorts Glasgow Fair Handicap.

William Haggas sends his charge on the long haul north from Newmarket for this class two prize, and the journey can be richly rewarded.

The four-year-old was certainly not a cheap purchase at 380,000 guineas back in 2014, but he has at least shown some ability in winning twice for Haggas last term before adding a third success on his most recent outing.

That verdict at Haydock last month went some way to restoring full faith in Zwayyan as he had previously let down his supporters when a beaten favourite at Goodwood.

There could be any amount of excuses for that lacklustre effort, not least it was his first start of the year, but he put it behind him with a battling head success on Merseyside.

Switching back to a mile obviously had a positive effect, while Zwayyan also showed pretty much all ground comes alike as it was soft that day when he had previously won on much quicker tracks.

The handicapper was hardly being charitable when hiking him 6lb for that run, but Zwayyan only really now appears to be finding his stride and something like the Betfred Mile at Goodwood will be on his radar if all goes to plan.

In contrast, Super Julius is already on a bit of a roll and can bring up his hat-trick in the Sky Bet Windsor Sprint Series Handicap at the Thameside venue.

The application of cheekpieces appears to have been a masterstroke on the part of Eve Johnson Houghton, with the headgear bringing about an immediate improvement as the Bated Breath gelding scored at Wolverhampton at the end of June.

Turned out again just a week later, Super Julius shrugged off a 6lb penalty to win a tight little event at Brighton with the minimum of fuss.

Samarmadi is one to watch as he has his first foray into handicap company at Wolverhampton.

Hugo Palmer's charge lines up in the FCL Global Forwarding Handicap after making a successful start to his career with a maiden win on the Doncaster turf at the start of this month.

Samarmadi overcame his evident experience to come home a half-length winner of what appeared to be a fair event, and a mark of 75 looks a reasonable starting point.

Major Valentine is in excellent heart at present and should be followed in the Bet totequadpot At Handicap at Ffos Las.

He already has four wins under his belt this year and after being ridden by apprentice Ben Robinson in his last six starts, Tom Marquand is an eyecatching booking this time around.
