SUNDAY WEEKENDER

14:30 Brighton The Sunday action at Brighton looks highly competitive and this 5f sprint sums up that statement with a select, but tightly handicapped field. The Richard Hughes trained Dandy Flame has been in fine form this summer, winning two of his last three starts, but he looked as if he was in the handicappers grip last time out at Salisbury. Instead, it may pay to side with another in-form competition in the shape of Luca Cumani’s Buxted Dream. The progressive 3yo hasn’t been out of the first two places in six starts this term including two wins from his last two starts. The latest of those wins came over course and distance so with only a 1lb rise to cope with here, he gets the confident nod to follow up and land the hat trick here. The main danger will likely come from Paul Midgely’s talented old sprinter Related, who is well treated on the form of his peak days, but he may not be up to that level these days. BUXTED DREAM (WIN) – NAP

16:00 Brighton Another tricky handicap this time ran over the 1m4f trip and the answer could lie in the jockey bookings. Richard Hannon sends the in-form Pete So High here in search of his third win in four starts and the booking of champion jockey elect Sylvestre De Sousa looks a significant boost to his cause. The High Chapparal gelding has been a picture of consistency, making the frame in all six starts this term and he looks primed to run his race again here today. But a chance is instead taken on a horse with another eye catching jockey booking as Adam Kirby takes the ride on Milky Way for the Gary Moore yard. The run behind Hawkridge Glory last time out gave hope there was more to come. That was only his second run back from two years off for the lightly raced 5yo and he should now be poised to strike today, so he gets the nod here. MILKY WAY (WIN)
