8.35 Brighton

The final race on the card at Brighton tonight is a Class 6 handicap over 6f and the ground is currently good, good to soft in places. Marco Botti’s Million Reasons has been backed from 20-1 all the way into 5-1 for this race which is a hell of a gamble.

It takes more than just a small few quid to shift the horse in the market to that extent. Million Reasons is a three-year-old Mehmas gelding who was well backed at Yarmouth last time out.

Sent off a 7-2 chance on that occasion, he travelled well for a long way over 7f but didn’t seem to see out the trip. The drop back to 6f is a wise choice by connections and he drops from a 0-65 down to 0-60 company, an easier assignment.

The handicapper has given this horse a major player, dropping him a total of 11lb from when he raced off 73 on his handicap bow last year. With low mileage on the clock, it is only a matter of time before he wins and it could well be tonight. Everything looks set for a huge run.
