One to watch out for today is John Ryan's only runner on the seven race card at Ayr and that's debut MANACCAN.

By Exceed And Excel, the two year old colt is a half brother to Listed winner over 6f Raucous and the exciting Divine Spirit who ran at Leicester yesterday.

What makes this horse so interesting however is the circumstances around his debut run.

He's John Ryan's fourth two year old to run on turf this season and the Newmarket based trainer has only sent three runners to Ayr in the past 12 months and ALL of them have won.

720 miles, or in travel time an approximately 18 hour round journey, seems pretty far to be sending one horse let alone a debutant so that's a clear sign that the yard really fancy this colt to do the business on debut here.
