We doubled up at Ayr with Firewater and Billy Bond. Firewater picked up the first win of her career in the opener. She pressed the leader under Tony Hamilton and was driven to lead over the final two furlongs. She drew clear inside the final furlong and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-half-lengths for owners Norman and Helen Steel.

Apprentice Russel Harris then rode his first winner for us onboard Billy Bond. He was awkwardly away and sat at the rear of the field. He made headway three furlongs from home and was always travelling strongly. He led approaching the final furlong and stayed on impressively to win by three-and-three-quarter-lengths.
