The richest race of the afternoon is the £13,800 Get Daily Tips At racinguk.com Handicap Hurdle also over the two mile four and a half furlong trip and Dan Skelton sends Three Musketeers on the 700 mile round trip from his Warwickshire base.

Another far travelled raider is Michael Scudamore who makes a rare visit to Ayr with Streets Of Promise in the Biggest Ever Jumps Season On Racinguk Handicap Hurdle which is a qualifier for the Northern Lights Staying Chase Series.

The afternoon concludes with a national hunt flat race where Lucinda Russell’s highly rated Precious Cargo could take all the beating.
