David Evans’ charge has been in a rich vein of form since the turn of 2021, winning three of his four starts. The latest of those wins came over course and distance when beating  the likeable Mamillius by half-a-length. He got up late on that day, but he’s a horse who always seems to just do enough, so there may be more scope for improvement off just a 1lb higher mark here. That form reads well enough now following the runner-up’s victory next time out. He gets a nice, quick surface here and it would be no surprise to see him follow up. Arabic Charm looks the main danger, but she’s still got to prove she can do it on the turf.


There was no trouble in the heartland for this son of Territories last time when getting up close to the line at Newbury. Archie Watson’s 3yo still looked a little bit green that day, hanging for pressure before mounting a challenge close to home. That experience should stand him in good stead here and he looks like a horse with a bit of ability, with the field in behind the second strung out. If he’s able to build on that performance, we can envisage another boss performance here. Far Hope will be a popular bet against him, but those looking for an each-way play should consider Art Dealer who will come on plenty for his debut.

The Jean Genie

The Jean Genie is now 9lb lower than when scoring over course and distance here in 2019. While that may suggest William Stone’s 7yo has let herself go, there’s been nuggets of positivity in her recent form and he could be ready to strike here. Her run at Windsor back in April was probably better than the bare form suggested, getting a bit short of room 2f out and was unable to pick up again after travelling well into the race. Her best form on turf has all come on rattling ground, so if the sun prevails she’ll surely appreciate the quick surface here. William Stone’s yard has been in good form recently and this one could nick more prize money for the Cambridgeshire trainer.

Rinty Maginty

Patrick Chamings’ 5yo looks well handicapped here. Last seen in a classified stakes race over this course and distance, he was caught a furlong out but battled back dourly without being able to get back to the winner. Thomas Lanfiere, who got his head in front that day off level weights, subsequently scored off a higher mark in handicap company back in Tuesday. This is only his fourth start for his new yard, who have had a few winners in recent weeks, and this looks like a thoroughly winnable contest.

About Brighton Racecourse

Brighton is one of the few racecourses in the country not to feature a complete circuit, instead this left-handed, undulating horseshoe course provides a real test of stamina in the final climb to the line.

Racing has taken place at Brighton for nearly 300 years, with George IV a regular owner of runners at the course. These days, events are more modest, with August’s three-day Brighton Festival the season highlight.
