Sunday Racing Preview - Brighton

As the weather once again turns to mixed conditions and rain, we once again turn our eyes to the country's racetracks to preview the weekend's running.

Brighton features a fairly relaxed card this Sunday. There are few standout races or runners, which you might think could be seen as a bad thing.

To us, however, it means there's potentially money to be made!

The first race, the 14:00 gatwickairport.com Handicap, is the place to start.

It looks like being a battle between three horses, and of them all the current favourite Secret Missile is the one we'd pick.

He's currently in great form, having placed in three of his last five and won in his most recent run out at Newmarket.

He's bumped up 4lb in weight but we think he has it in him to pull off another win, especially since the rain showers will soften the ground in his favour.

Of course, being the favourite means the odds aren't necessarily the most attractive, but at 4/1 over at BoyleSports we think there's a chance for a decent return.

Of the other runners, his two biggest competitors in our eyes are Vodka Chaser and Storm Lightning, and of the two we'd take the latter.

Vodka Chaser has run well this summer and now runs off her highest ever mark. We think the extra weight may tell, especially if the rain softens the ground.

Storm Lightning has also run well this summer, though he hasn't yet managed a victory.

Nonetheless, with a good pace to the race we think he will show through as a strong contender.

He's a slight outsider against Secret Missile but at 13/2 over at Paddy Power he's worth a flutter.

Finally, in the 15:30 EBF/Family Friendly Gatwick Airport Fillies Handicap, we think you'd be mad not to have a little on Arabian Beauty.

Her form may look a little mixed compared to some of the other runners, but she's lightly raced, has improved greatly over her last two outings, and the use of cheekpieces last time out seemed to be the final piece of the puzzle.

This is a slightly longer trip, but the 4lb rise due to her previous victory doesn't look likely to be enough to prevent her showing improvement again.

She has every chance of being first across the line, and you can get her for a very decent 9/4 at Coral.

Monday Racing Preview - Epsom Downs

We've got an enticing Bank Holiday selection for you from the Epsom Downs meeting.

Our first pick comes in the 15:10 totepool Supporting The Sport You Love Handicap.

The current favourite, Long Awaited, has won this race previously, but that was in 2012 and he hasn't won a race since.

He's in good form currently, but we fancy a horse a little further down the listings.

Come On Dave won two Class 5 handicaps within 48 hours earlier this month, and looks to be in the form of his life.

This will undoubtedly be a bigger test, being a few grades higher and now running off his highest ever mark, but the weights still look reasonably in his favour and given his limited running for his current yard we think they can find more in him yet.

It's a tough call in what will likely be a very open race, but we're picking him out as our favourite to win.

With odds of 13/2 available at Paddy Power, he's a very tempting choice indeed.

Following on from that race, the 15:45 Stanley Wootton Conditions Stakes promises to be a cracking race.

We will get our first glimpse since January of Haafaguinea, who has been on a long layoff.

Whatever the reason for such a long break, Godolphin have clearly felt he was worth the effort of persevering, and his form prior to the break suggests there may well be plenty still to come from him.

He's gone well fresh before, and he's also won on soft ground previously which may be an important factor given the Bank Holiday weather sweeping the country.

The stable have won five out of the last eight runnings, and Haafaguinea remains a promising horse.

He may be favourite but he's still available at a decent 11/4 over at Coral.

It won't necessarily all go his way, however, and we would also like to point out last year's winner, Fattsota.

He's made a slow but progressive return to form over this campaign, and won a decent handicap at Newmarket two weeks ago.

He's good over this distance and perhaps more importantly, he prefers softer ground to good.

With Haafaguinea being a promising but recently unproven runner, Fattsota may well appeal to those who want a more known quantity.

He's well priced for a previous winner too, and if you head to BoyleSports you can still get him at 4/1.
