16:40 Brighton Tue 20 August 2019
Twice a winner at this venue, best when coming off a strong pace (which he may not get here) and arguably better at 7f as well. Below par in a better race here last time out, but still plenty to do here.
Back to form when springing a 22-1 surprise at Lingfield last week but there was no fluke about it, coming clear late on. Loves it here (has five course wins to his name) and obvious chances of following up under the penalty.
Only the one win in 16 starts but hard to knock latest efforts, not beaten far at either Kempton or Bath but has had a bit of a break since those efforts and might need this to put him a bit straighter.
Edging back down to a winnable mark and turned in a better effort at Beverley last time (10f), staying on for third. Rare runner for yard at the track but they are 2-10 when they come here, so chance has to be respected.
Over a year since he last scored but on a very good mark these days and loves these downhill tracks. Will find this easier than some of the tasks he's had this season and has place chances if it all drops right.
Recent form nothing to get excited about but at least his best effort came over C&D when second here in May, staying on late. Good apprentice booked and although a risky proposition, isn't totally out of this.
Not the most consistent around but does have a couple of course wins to her name and is useful enough when it all falls right for her. Latest effort best forgiven (hampered) and another with place chances today.
Some while since she scored but at least it was a better effort when in the frame over C&D last time out. Far from certain to back that up though, and from 1lb out the handicap, faces a tough enough task.
