Course form can be absolutely crucial when looking for a winner. If you know your way around a place, you are going to have an advantage over somebody who has never been there before. The same applies to horses – knowing your way around a venue is always a big advantage. Adrian Wall has picked out three former course winners at Brighton on Monday. He has formed an enormous 130-1 accumulator with all three runners, who have solid chances individually. It can be backed with William Hill.
Velvet Vista has won six times from 16 starts this year which is an impressive return. The top weight ran well at Yarmouth last time out without threatening but the return to this track will see her in a better light. She bolted up over course and distance in July and is only 3lb higher in the weights now.
Junoesque arrives here in search of a hat-trick of victories after two victories over this track and trip in July and August. That was her third victory over course and distance last time out and she dug deep to get the job done last time. This will be tougher from 2lb higher but the handicapper has been lenient all the same.
This looks a match up between Boom The Groom and Shamshon who battled it all the way to the line here last time out. Shamshon came out on top on that occasion and the former has never won at this venue as a consequence. Shamshon is only 1lb worse off at the weights so it could be a tight finish yet again.
