6.45pm Brighton Tips & Betting Preview 11/07/2017

A field of eight go to post for the third race of the day at Brighton on Tuesday, see our betting tips and the full race preview below.

IN SUMMARY: This race can go the way of top-weight ONE BIG SURPRISE, a 5-year-old mare who threatened that she mightn’t be far off a return to winning ways when only beaten a couple of lengths at Lingfield recently. That form does need improving on but she gets an extra couple of furlongs today back at a track she clearly enjoys and everything looks in place for a massive run.

1 ONE BIG SURPRISE – Form figures of 22314 at this track at distances between five and seven furlongs, last seen at Lingfield where she was a bit below form to finish fifth. That was at the five furlong trip though and she looks dangerous back up to the seven furlong trip, as she’s proven over the course and distance. Finley Marsh takes the ride and seven pounds off her back, so she looks a very solid contender for Richard Hughes.

2 CHICA DE LA NOCHE – Won a seven furlong all weather maiden back in October at Kempton but she hasn’t gone on form that and she looks up against it off this mark. She was last seen at Newbury where she was only seventh, with the handicapper only relenting two pounds. That is unlikely to be enough to see her winning in this sort of company and others are readily preferred.

3 SPARKLE – Yet to win from seven attempts for Ed Dunlop and she is going backwards at present, with her latest thirteenth a very tame effort as she was never involved after a tardy start. She is only down two pounds in the handicap and there are serious doubts about her now, with Luke Morris not enough to tempt us onto her in this. Others look far more interesting and she’s unlikely to be involved when it matters.



6 ANDALUSITE – Won here over the mile distance back in April but she has been inconsistent sicne and only managed seventh over course and distance in June. She remains on the same mark and that performance does little to persuade, as she weakened quite tamely. Conditions will suit and Fergus Sweeney takes the ride but it’s hard to envisage her winning this judging by what she’s shown previously.


8 ROBIN’S PURSE – Failed to beat a rival when well beaten at Ascot on her final two year old start and she’s cut no ice in two handicap runs this season for Charlie Hills. She was ninth at Yarmouth on her latest start, showing very little and eased when her chance had gone. She is down a further three pounds in the handicap but she looks an unlikely winner of this and others are readily preferred.
