Neil Morrice: London – DOCTOR BARTOLO and AY AY look stand out bets in the juvenile races on a punter friendly BiPot card at Newcastle.
Willie Carson is a joint owner of the Charlie Hills-trained Doctor Bartolo who has the best form credentials in the 32Red.com Maiden Stakes.
This son of Sir Prancelot is unlucky not to have already opened his account, his efforts including a close second on his debut at Newmarket, while at Wolverhampton last time he might have won but for hanging left.
Carson has been successful in his ownership ventures, which include a Breeders’ Cup winner, and the former multiple champion jockey from the UK should have plenty to smile about after this race.
Ay Ay attracted market support when scoring on his introduction at Lingfield, arriving with a storming late run to settle matters in the final strides.
The son of Investec Derby winner Pour Moi is owned by Michael Tabor’s wife Doreen and may have learned much from that initial foray onto the track.
The Sun Bets Conditions Stakes is a tight-knit affair but Ay Ay’s finishing burst can prove decisive at the business end.
