Former Old Firm stars Johan Mjallby and David Weir will make the draw for the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup before racing at Ayr Racecourse next Thursday (September 19).
The draw for the Gold Cup, which is run on Saturday September 21, will take place in the Owners’ Club at the track at 11.00am and will be hosted by Racing TV presenter Gordon Brown and will be broadcast live on the dedicated racing channel..
Trainers and their representatives of the 25 horses that will be declared for the race earlier that morning will be able to pick the stall their horse runs from once the name has been drawn by either ex Celt Johan or former Ranger David. Both former players went on to become assistant manager at their respective clubs.
The current 13-2 favourite for the race is the lightly raced three year old Victory Day, trained by William Haggas. His previous run came in last month’s Shergar Cup Sprint at Ascot and he won comfortably. He is likely to be ridden by Ayrshire born jockey Danny Tudhope.
The three day William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Festival begins on Thursday with the feature race the William Hill Doonside Cup, Listed Race.
