Good Prizemoney on offer at Ayr Racecourse

Some hefty prize-money for a Monday should attract some quality runners to Ayr Racecourse on the 26th for February Jumps Raceday.

The feature races are two Class 3 contests with the first of these, the £12,700 Bet At Novices’ Chase due off at 3.50pm. Run over two miles four and a half furlongs this could feature Bobbie’s Diamond from Andrew Hamilton’s Carluke yard who won impressively at the track earlier in the month but he will be made to work hard by Progress Drive, trained by Nicky Richards, who also won that day at Ayr.

The richest race of the afternoon is the £13,800 Get Daily Tips At 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.

The first race is due off at 2.15 pm with gates open at 12.15 pm. For more information on racing at Ayr or to book tickets call 01292 264179 or go online at
