Checkatrade.com Raceday Preview

Thu, Aug 7, 2014

Tomorrow brings a close to Brighton's superb August Festival of Racing with yet another exciting card of seven races, the first of which is due off at 14.10.

Some of the entries in the BOBIS race, the Harry Bloom Memorial Handicap, include Marcus Tregoning's Serena Grae and Sylvester Kirk's Penny's Boy, both of which carry a 6 pound excess as a penalty for winning recently at Bath and Ffos Las respectively. The Visit Us At Checkatrade.com Handicap, ran over 1 mile 3 furlongs looks set to be a very exciting race, with five out of the six runners previous distance winners. Cabuchon, trained by David Evans, ran a nice race last time out when second at Bath, and could go one better this time out with 3 pound claimer Declan Bates on board.

However, the feature race of the afternoon is a five furlong sprint: the £500 Money Backs Only At Choicebet.net Handicap. This is yet another race packed with previous course and distance winners including Noverre To Go, Ron Harris' eight-year-old gelding, who was beaten by three quarters of a length at Brighton last month by fellow runner Ginzan, trained by Malcom Saunders. Gates open at 12noon.
