Summerghand winning the 2022 Ayr Gold Cup

Ayr racecourse stages one of its biggest race days this Saturday with the Virgin Bet-sponsored Ayr Gold Cup the feature on the 8-race card. It was also a prize the veteran sprinter Summerghand won 12 months ago and he’s back to try and defend his crown. 

Summerghand Hoping To Become First Back-to-Back Ayr Gold Cup Winner Since 1931

12 months ago, the David O’Meara-trained Summerghand landed the 2022 £90k Ayr Gold Cup (watch below) as an 8 year-old, but despite being another year older returns to the Scottish venue this Saturday at 9 years-old to try and become the first back-to-back horse to win the big sprinting handicap since Heronslea in 1930 and 31.

Summerghand’s win last year was also giving trainer David O’Meara his second success in the race after taking the pot in 2014 with Louis The Pious too.

However, it’s the Kevin Ryan yard in recent years that holds the best Ayr Gold Cup record – with 5 wins since 2007.

One of those Ryan victories came just two years ago (2021) with Bielsa, who is another past winner that’s expected to run this Saturday too.

Now an 8 year-old, Bielsa will be hoping to do what Funfair Wane did and win two Ayr Gold Cups within three seasons – he landed the prize in 2004 and 2006.

Summerghand has returned this season in fine fettle too – running 11 times in 2023 – and won a decent York handicap sprint over 6f just two races ago.While his last quartet of races have seen top-four each time.

He’s also the top-rated horse in the field at 105 and is set to carry a big weight (10-1) as a result, but is still only rated 3lbs higher than his win in the race last season.

The best UK horse racing betting sites give both recent winners a leading chance too, with Summerghand @ 10/1 and Bielsa @ 14/1, just behind the current Ayr Gold Cup favourite Orazio @ 8/1, who is trained by Charles Hills.

Prices listed are offered by the Ayr Gold Cup race sponsor Virgin Bet – where you can bet £10 to get a £20 free bet (Ts&C’s apply)
