Ayr Racecourse stages the first of five behind closed doors fixtures in July with a competitive looking eight race card.
The opening race is the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes at 12.40pm, a Class 5 for two year-olds over six furlongs and entries here include Captain Magnum who was fourth on the all-weather on his racecourse debut at Newcastle last month. He is trained by Archie Watson in Lambourn and Andrew Mullen takes the mount.
There is another two year-old race, the EBF Stallions Novice Stakes over seven furlongs at 2.15pm and Keith Dalgleish could run Summa Peto here. The grey colt made his debut at Ayr on June 22 and impressed when going down by half a length to Internationaldream. That heat was over six furlongs and the extra distance should suit this 54,000 dollar buy.
The feature of the afternoon is a Class 3 six furlong contest at 1.40pm which carries a prize fund of £10,400.With rain forecast in the days leading up to this fixture Jim Goldie could have the answer in Call Me Ginger, a lightly raced four year-old, who ran a creditable race at the track last Monday behind National Anthem over a furlong shorter.
Mike Smith’s stable has hit form after a barren spell and he could go for a quick fire course double with Glasses Up in the 1m 2f CPMS Handicap at 3.45pm. He won well here on June 22 and with Paddy Mathers riding again will be fancied. His main rival appears to be Colony Queen from the Steve Gollings yard who is going for his fourth successive win.
THE 2018-2019 jumps season at Ayr Racecourse gets under way on Monday with a six race card. The action kicks off at 12.55pm with a two mile four furlong maiden hurdle which could see some southern based trainers sending young horses on the long trip north.READ MORE
