5:00 Brighton

A small maiden over the extended 5f with a number of form horses and one debutante. (29th April)

This looks a weak race and not one I would like to wager.

Stunning In Purple showed a good attitude when placed in an uncompetitive race at Lingfield on debut. Haynes' juvenile could well run another big race here but it wouldn't take a talent to beat her. However, the opposition have their limitations too.

Johnny Hancocks is a speed type and probably went a shade too quick at Kempton, paying the price late on by tiring. Evans two-year-olds have been in good form and this colt may be capable of more if able to settle.

Mick Channon's two-year-olds still seem to be struggling to win and this colt by Fath didn't reveal any ability on debut although a nice looking juvenile with plenty of size and scope for improvement. In addition, this runner has been entered to run in a stakes race, which is a positive. There is little doubt that Prophet In A Dream needs to find substantial improvement to figure here but an interesting contender in a race that will not take much winning.

After a promising start for Bill Turner's runner in the Brocklesby (Lady Brookie) his other two-year-olds have only been fair performers at best. Vivre La Secret is relatively short price in the tissue prices. It may be wise to let the betting settle rather than taking an early price.

A difficult race to assess. Stunning In Purple is likely to run her race. Johnny Hancocks may be an alternative.

A watching race.
