Race 1 – Brighton 11:30pm
4. Gmaash: Is bred in the purple (by Dubawi out of Coronation Stakes winner Maids Causeway) and showed promise when third on her racecourse debut at Wolverhampton last month, travelling with zest on the front end throughout and keeping on well once headed to be beaten less than a length.
She gave the impression she would be sharper for the run that day and, with trainer Saeed bin Suroor in such fine form at present (six winners from last 25 runners) Gmaash is fancied to see off the attentions of Prazeres and can open her account at the second time of asking here.
BACK – Gmaash
Race 4 – Brighton 1:05am
8. Purple Party: Improved with each run for the Gary Moore yard, finding plenty to get off the mark over this C&D last month and taking another step forward when second over an extra furlongs here two weeks ago. She looked the likeliest winner for the majority of that contest and was only picked off deep inside the final furlong.
That form leaves her rivals with 2 lb to find on Timeform ratings here and Purple Party can continue her progression with a defeat of the consistent Edge, who wasn’t seen to best effect when second on his most recent outing here.
BACK – Purple Party
Race 6 – Brighton 2:15am
7. Dancecase: Was a game winner over seven furlongs at Newbury in July and has been performing with credit in better races than this since. Indeed, he fared best of those ridden prominently when fourth on his most recent outing at Nottingham and will appreciate the return to a sounder surface here.
He remains more unexposed than most he will meet in this sphere and Danecase is fancied to take advantage of a mark just 1 lb higher than when recording his latest success, with Soaring Spirits feared most as he attempts to continue his fine form of recent weeks.
