Built on previous effort when returning to winning ways in 12-runner handicap at Newcastle (5f) 3 days ago. 6 lb penalty to carry now, however, and seems more effective on AW.

Verdict

Royal Residence (second) had Tawny Port (third), Dalton (fifth), Tommy G (eighth), Equitation (ninth), Yes You (13th), Paddy Power (14th) and Captain Jameson (19th) behind in the Ayr Bronze Cup, but he is not certain to confirm that heavy ground form. Black Isle Boy struggled on his first start since April at Doncaster last month but could come on for that, though preference is for FENDALE. Bryan Smart's gelding was a good third over this trip at Ripon last time and has winning course form to his name.

Verdict

ROYAL RESIDENCE is a sprinter on the up and was unlucky not to finish closer when runner-up in a big-field handicap at Ayr last time. Still on a decent mark, he can land the spoils in the finale. Dalton, Gin In The Inn and Equitation make up the shortlist.
