1: PINK CRYSTAL (2:20pm Brighton) (6 votes)

Two wins and four places in six starts so far, for this Willie Haggas’ fillie and comes into this contest, off the back of a victory at Thirsk (6f, good to firm) a fortnight ago, when beating Burning Emotion by a length and a half. Rise of 6lbs against the males here, makes for a challenging contest, but she goes in as clear favourite to make it a double this afternoon.

14.20 Harry Bloom Memorial ‘Brighton Bullet’ Handicap
Result
1st 11/4


2. GLORY AND HONOUR (4:35pm Thirsk) (3 votes)

Winner over all three discipline, but off a low flat mark, compared to National Hunt level. However, a victory at Catterick (1m 4f, soft) three days ago, when 1.5 lengths clear of Purple Reign, offers a great opportunity to improve that record. David O’Meara’s charge is clear favourite here, with only the quick turnover, posing potential problems. Looks the one to beat.

3. NEW DEFINITION (2:10pm Musselburgh) (2 votes)

Grabbed consecutive seconds in the opening two starts, before taking a maiden win at the third time of asking, when 2.5 lengths clear of Explicit at Kempton (6f, a/w) back in June. Made the step up to listed company last time out, when a creditable fourth of six in the Rose Bowl Stakes at Newbury (6f, good to firm). Massive favourite on form, with Looking For Lynda the only real challenger here.

4. RAVENSCRAIG CASTLE (2:40pm Musselburgh) (2 votes)

Both career wins came last Summer, when striking a double at Carlisle and Ayr. Iain Jardine’s runner has raced four times since returning from a 197 day break, with the best of those runs, coming at Ayr (1m 5f, good) in June, when fourth of thirteen and just 1.75 lengths behind Dark Jedi, who reopposes here, some 4lbs worse off. Should be in the mix here, but may be worth at an each-way option, if pricing allows.

5. LOVE FIFTEEN (3:30pm Thirsk) (2 votes)

Solid runs last month, finishing third of eleven at both Ripon (6f, good) and Catterick (6f, good to firm), some 2.5 and 3.25 lengths adrift of the winner, in each respective contest. Makes handicap debut today of what looks to be a useful starting level and also attempts to take on 7f for the first time too. Chances here and once again each-way backing looks the ideal.
