TERRI RULES is a solid performer at this level and won a shade cosily in a similar contest at Yarmouth last time out.
She has been hiked 4lb for that but most of it is covered by his excellent rider’s claim today. The trip suits and he’ll be hard to beat.
GREGARIOUS GIRL took a big step forward from her debut when finishing third at Windsor last time out. She looked pretty green again but saw out the race well.
Provided this drop back in distance isn’t a problem she should be right on the premises.
LIGHTNING CHARLIE was good value for his win over course and distance 12 days ago and can follow up from a fair 4lb higher in the weights.
He gets on well with today’s rider and is worth following while in the mood.
Pour La Victoire is gunning for a hat-trick of victories over C&D and gets on well with today’s 7lb claimer.
Some nice types in this but MISS CELESTIAL is dropping down from Group 3 company where she was far from disgraced at Deauville last time out.
That was after finishing a close-up third at Haydock with both efforts coming over this distance. First-time blinkers could eke out a bit more improvement too.
LATEST IN HORSE RACING
LIGHTENING DANCE came right back to his best when scoring at Salisbury last time and good claimer Jason Watson accounts for most of his rise in the handicap here.
The first-time hood definitely helped there and could well work its magic again.
ROY ROCKET has earned himself legendary status with his efforts around Brighton which has been the venue for all nine of his career wins.
He is just 3lb higher than when scoring on his last visit to the south coast and he got no luck in running at Epsom last time out under an amateur.
RED CHARMER keeps winning despite the handicapper throwing him sharply up the weights.
He goes on any ground and it was testing when he kept digging out more to strike at Goodwood last time for the hat-trick of successes.
He has enough pace for this shorter trip and could have yet more to offer.
