Day two of Ayr’s March Meeting is on the horizon on Saturday, with the Virgin Bet Raceday at the track boasting a competitive seven-race card.

Racing gets underway at 1.23pm with a novice hurdle in class four before rounding off at 4.53pm with a Flat race ran over jumps rules.

All seven contests will be shown live on Racing TV

Seven runners are set to contest the opener, where Carlisle winner Coniston George is the selection in a competitive heat, stepping up in trip here.

Sea God is of interest also, going over hurdles for the first time having been a point-to-point winner and winning a two-runner contest on Rules debut last time out in December. 

The second race on the card (1.58pm) looks to be all about Blue Baloo, who hasn’t quite built on a debut hurdle win at Newcastle but is now entering handicaps and is off an enticing mark.

The Lucinda Russell-trained pair Lady In The Park and Czech Her Out are also of interest to provide the main competition.

Race three (2.33pm) is a 2m handicap chase in class four and sees Dreams Of Home, who made a winning return at Kelso and subsequently scoring a third place over course and distance at Ayr, dropped to a handy mark by the handicapper and with the addition of new headgear is expected to go well.

Thurles maiden winner Salamanca Bay provides a stiff test of competition.

The midway point of the card is reached at 3.08pm with the handicap hurdle in class four and eight runners are set to tackle the 2m trip.

Course and distance winner Bois Guillbert enters equations but needs to improve following a last of four finish last time out but that was a hot contest. Park Annonciade is the selection however, winning handicaps over course and distance and at Haydock in November.

Race five (3.43pm) sees Irish raider Ballycoose head over to Scotland and hold strong claims after a strong start to his chasing career and can resume winning ways.

Another course and distance winner in Dubai Days for trainer Nick Alexander will push him all the way, a second in a handicap 22 days ago but is back down to a more manageable trip here. 

The penultimate contest (4.18pm) is a handicap hurdle in class five with a large field of 17 declared for the race  - but it’s not an overly competitive heat.

Gypsey’s Secret is the best of the bunch, only finding one better on his previous Ayr appearance, while Clovis Boy cannot be discounted either, getting off the mark at Hexham in November and a solid fourth of 10 at Wetherby last time out. 

Finally, the card rounds off at 4.53pm with the bumper and the section is Yakaleo, who sets a high standard off his third at Musselburgh on debut.
