Big fields expected at Ayr meeting

AYR Racecourse holds its second February meeting of the year on Thursday with a whopping 198 entries at the five day declaration stage.And with the ground drying out its likely most of the races will have big fields and punters are in for some competitive racing.Lenny Lungo’s Dumfriesshire stable is beginning to hit form and he could have a few interesting runners including Banoge in the Celebrate Easter At Western House Hotel Maiden Hurdle and the 13 year old The Bajan Bandit in the tartanturftours.co.uk Hunters Chase.Winner of three chases and ten hurdles races in a career that has earned almost £100,000, The Bajan Bandit may not be the force of old but is worth a look on his hunter chasing debut.Donald McCain Jnr’s horses are in sparkling form and he had a treble at Ayr’s meeting earlier in the month. His recent Carlisle winner Mrs O’Malley could be hard to beat in the Join The ROA At racehorseowners.net Handicap Chase.Potentially the best quality race on the card is the Weatherbys Bank Novice Handicap Chase over two miles and leading players here should be Ferdy Murphy’s Media Man, Nicky Richards Run To Space and Something Silver from Jim Goldie’s yard.First race is at 2.10 pm with bars and restaurants opening at 12.10 pm.
