16:30 Brighton Thu 9 August 2018
Having his 10th start at this track but has yet to score despite a few fair efforts. Has had plenty of chances and no obvious reason why today should be his day.
Last three career wins have all come over C&D including on penultimate start in May when battling home off 3lb lower mark. Disappointed here since but returns from a break which may have done him good so shouldn't be far away.
Is 2-4 over C&D this season so clearly enjoys the coastal air. Won with a bit in hand latest so 3lb rise looks very fair and has every chance of going close once again at what is becoming his favourite venue.
Inconsistent this term but did landed a C&D win in June off just 1lb lower. Will run her race but may find one or two too good on this occasion.
2-3 over C&D but hasn't been seen this turf campaign and has absence of more than five months to overcome. Races of last winning mark though so keep an eye on the betting for any move from shrewd connections.
Only win came in Yarmouth selling handicap earlier this term and was beaten in that company last time out over further. Not without hope but needs to raise his game a little.
Beaten just half a length here in May then ran well soon after at Kempton. Not seen since so may need a run or two to return to peak form.
