3:45 Brighton Racing Tips (18th September)

Racing Tips
Only 6 runners and there's 2 known front-runners in the race and they are my joint top rated horses so I think it will be a battle from start to finish between HIGHLY SPRUNG 11/2 and FANG 8/1, the former trainer has a 22% win rate and this course and the jockey has an 18% win rate for this stable so that looks positive also its best time was recorded at Epsom so the undulations of this course won't hold any fears but the trainer of Fang has a 3-11 win ratio here but I'm not sure of the jockey booking as he's 0-2 for the stable so not really enough to say it's a definite negative, I will go with backing them both but slightly favour Highly Sprung.
Only 8 runners and there's not much between my joint 5th topped pair and my 2nd top-rated horse, the 3year old Stringyback Creek is my 2nd top rated but mainly because it's the bottom weight and is 0-16 on turf but has finished 2nd twice so could make the frame, ZIPEDEEDODAH 4/1 starts off in 4th spot but its 5lb claiming apprentice moves it into 2nd spot and this one is the one I think will be the pacesetter but maybe wouldn't want it to be good to firm ground, my top rated is PEARL NOIR 10/1 who is versatile with what tactics it deploys in a race and that does include leading but it maybe will need to be a little more patient here and follow the front-runners and stay on the stronger at the finish. If the going is good to firm I will go with just the one bet but if only good going then I would have to go with backing both selections to cover both angles of a front-runner and a strong finishing type.
