Tim Vaughan sends three on the long journey to Ayr and Isle Of Aron looks to hold strong claims of shedding his maiden tag in the first division of the 2m4f handicap hurdle.

He has been mixing it over hurdles and fences of late and has reached the frame on his last two starts, the latest of them over the larger obstacles at Ffos Las just over a fortnight ago.

He is on the same mark for today’s assignment, in what looks a weaker race.  Stable jockey Alan Johns is on board and the first-time cheekpieces could spark a bit of improvement.

RECOMMENDED BET: 2.40pm Ayr – Isle Of Aron win @ 7/2 (most firms)
