TENNENT’S Raceday today (Thursday) at Ayr Racecourse features a seven race card with some big southern stables represented.
The opening race, Division 1 of the Caledonia Best Maiden Hurdle features some young horses setting out on their jumps career including Buster Valentine from the Ruth Jefferson yard.
The famous colours of Simon Munir and Isaac Suede, whose Bristol de Mai won the Betfair Chase at Haydock on Saturday, will be carried by No Hassle Hoff in the Oliver McCann A Mighty Sporting Man Novices’ Chase at 2.25pm for trainer Dan Skelton and jockey Daryl Jacob.
This horse was fourth last time out at Sandown earlier in the month and is Jacob’s only mount at the meeting.
Olly Murphy trains 330 miles from the track at Stratford on Avon and sends a solitary runner in Beau Sancy to contest the Loch Katrine Handicap Chase. Gavin Sheehan takes the mount on the six year old who is going for his fourth successive win. Ian Duncan’s Imperial Prince is another interesting runner here and the nine year-old was running a huge race at Ayr here last time out before falling four out.
Plus Jamais, a four time course winner, carries top weight in the Tennent’s Handicap Hurdle over 2m 5f and Iain Jardine will be hoping for a big run from his 11 year-old who has Bruce Lynn riding. Keith Dalgleish has been having some winners over jumps and runs Niceandeasy, the mount of Brian Hughes, in this.
The first race is due off at 12.10pm with gates open at 10.30am.
THE final Flat meeting of 2018 at Ayr takes place today (Thursday) with an eight race card featuring 112 runners. The feature race of the afternoon is the Western House Hotel Handicap at 3.10pm where 11 runners go to post including the Richard Fahey trained Militia who won at the track in July and Inexes from the Marjorie Fife yard who won over course and distance last week.READ MORE
