2:00 Brighton Racing Tips (9th August)

BRIGHTON 2.00 (8.1) 

This is one of the best 6 runner class 5 that I've seen for a long time, there's 3 possible contenders for the lead and my 3rd top rated, Entertaining Ben and 2nd top rated Red Alert are 2 of them and I'm hoping they take each other on right from the start and go off too fast and play into the hands of *ESSAKA 5/1 who has won its last 2 races and likes to track the leaders and then stay on strongly at the finish.

HAYDOCK 3.40 (7.4) 

I've found 3 who might like to set the pace here, then I've got 3 co-3rd top rated horses in Berlios, Kodicat and Castlerea Tess and any of them may or may not make the frame, my 2nd top rated is HEE HAW 9/2 who looks the most likely one to prevail from the front runners and if allowed an easy lead it could prove hard to catch but i do have the top weight BORN TO FINISH 11/2 as my top rated and i will look to back them both to cover the angles.

Born To Finish 11/2 3rd

HAYDOCK 4.10 

A class 2 race with just Magical Dreamer who is my 3rd top rated known as a front running sort and could go well with an easy lead, I've got Gorgeous Noora as 2nd top rated and this one likes to track the leaders so should have a target to aim at while the top rated MAID IN INDIA 10/1 can be held up or track the leaders and then stay on the stronger. 

Maid In India 10/1 5th

NEWCASTLE 8.30 

I love me all weather racing but have to admit this class 6 affair isn't the strongest and wont take much winning and there's only one known to front run but I've got Duke Cosimo 14/1 as my 2nd top rated using a time recorded in 2017 and may be worth having a place bet on the exchanges, Pulsating would be joint 2nd top using a 2016 time but hasn't been as good since but never say never for it bouncing back to form but i do have the top weight EPEIUS 8/1 rated just 1lb higher and this one will be staying on at the finish but my stakes wont be at full strength in this race.

Epeius 8/1 6th
