Nicky Richards is looking forward to running Marown in the Marlene McPherson 65th Birthday Handicap Chase at Ayr on Monday.

“He’ll run his race that’s for sure as he done well up there over hurdles and fences,” Richards said. “He was second last time over 2m 4f and it will suit him to be back up in trip again.”

Wakool, trained by Nick Alexander, bids to win the Golf Inn Prestwick Handicap Hurdle for the second year running.

Twelve months ago the Kinneston raider saw off Storm Nelson by six-lengths and the runner-up is among his four rivals again this time.
