The Christmas Tribute Nights @AyrRacecourse Chase, a Novices Limited Handicap over two mile four furlongs at 2.05pm has attracted some good entries including Indirocco from the all-conquering Dan Skelton yard.


The Book 2nd January Raceday and Celebrate Handicap Chase over 3 miles at 2.40pm, a qualifier for the Northern Lights Staying Chase Series, sees Attention Please from the Rose Dobbin yard attempt to land this prize.

The action concludes with a National Hunt Flat Race and usually this type of race at Ayr guarantees a good field with some promising horses featuring with the leading stables of Nicky Richards, Stuart Crawford, Keith Dalgleish and Donald McCain represented.

Gates are open at 11 o’clock with the final race on the card due off at 3.50 pm.
