Ayrshire Post - - SPORTS -

Jump rac­ing at Ayr con­tin­ues on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15 with the seven- race Novem­ber Race­day.

The high­lights are three qual­i­fy­ing races for the ‘ North­ern Lights Se­ries’ of races, with the fi­nals be­ing held at Carlisle in De­cem­ber.

The three races in ques­tion next Wed­nes­day are a three- mile hand­i­cap chase at 12.30pm for the Stay­ing Chase Se­ries; a three- mile hand­i­cap hur­dle for the Stay­ing Hur­dle Se­ries at 1.35pm; and a two- mile fur­long hand­i­cap hur­dle for the Mares’ Se­ries Hur­dle and that goes off at 2.10pm.

Horses who then qual­ify for the Carlisle fi­nals will race at their meet­ing on De­cem­ber 3.

The fea­ture race on the Ayr card is a three- mile chase due to come un­der starter’s orders with £ 12,000 in the pot.

Look for Lucinda Rus­sell, with four win­ners from the first two meet­ings of the sea­son at the Craigie track, send­ing a good few run­ners as her sta­ble re­ally hits top gear, while James Ewart also has his horses well for­ward and will be look­ing for some win­ners.

Mike Smith will look for an op­por­tu­nity for Nakadam who is well hand­i­capped and ran a de­cent race to fin­ish sec­ond on Satur­day at the track. The two- and- a- half- mile chase at 2.40pm could be tai­lor- made for him.
