The opening afternoon kicks off with the six furlong EBF Nairn Brown 50th Anniversary Maiden Stakes for two year olds and traditionally this type of race at Ayr attracts some quality juveniles from leading yards.
The highlight of the afternoon is the £12,000 Racing UK 10th Anniversary Handicap over five furlongs, which should see a big number of runners vying for the valuable prize.
