Exciting racing in prospect at Ayr

SOME exciting racing is in prospect at Ayr Racecourse on Tuesday February 11 with the seven race Valentine’s Raceday.

A total of £37,000 in prize money is on offer with some top northern jockeys including Jason Maguire, Brian Harding and Peter Buchanan likely to be in action.

The feature race is the £12,000 BetVictor’s Live Casino Handicap Chase, a class 3 contest over two miles four furlongs at 4.30 pm which should attract some decent handicappers for what is a good midweek prize.

Main supporting race is The Back Of The Net At BetVictor.com Novices’ Chase over two miles five furlongs and due off at 3.25 pm. The opening race is at 1.50 pm with gates open at 11.50 am and the final race of the afternoon is at 5.00 pm.

This is the first of two February meetings at the Craigie track as the build up continues to the Coral Scottish Grand National Festival at the course on Friday April 11 and Saturday April 12.
