Timeform take you through the card at Brighton on Tuesday...

"He's a long way clear of his two rivals in terms of form, and he should win with something to spare."

Timeform on Burj

17:40 - While CANTSTOPTHEROCK (7) failed to pull up any trees in Ireland, the hint may be worth taking if the market vibes are positive. Indeed, she is making her debut for the shrewd Olly Murphy yard off a basement mark, plus the combination of dropping back in trip and first-time blinkers are other potential positive factors. Seaforth is 0-24 but needs considering, as does last year's winner Wild Flower.

18:10 - It's very difficult to look beyond BURJ (1), who looks to have been found a good opportunity to get back on track, having found the Coventry Stakes a little too hot last time. He's a long way clear of his two rivals in terms of form, and he should win with something to spare.

18:40 - GAINSAY (3) has proved to be a different proposition since being switched to handicaps this year, getting back on track by notching her third victory of her five-start campaign on turf at Lingfield recently. A 5 lb rise looks manageable, conditions are again in her favour and she's proven round here (C&D winner in May). Topmeup found just one too good over 1¼m here last week and, with the drop back in trip no problem, she is next best ahead of Kachumba.

19:10 - GENETICS (3) has been in good form in small-field handicaps, winning over C&D last month, and just about makes most appeal ahead of the admirable Roy Rocket, who steps up a fair bit in grade, but loves it here and is aiming for a hat-trick.

19:40 - HIDDEN STASH (3) is taken to follow up last month's C&D win having landed back-to-back races in the past. Junoesque finally got off the mark here a fortnight ago and could kick on now. Sharp Operator also enters calculations.

20:10 - This should be run at a good clip and SPANISH STAR (5), who didn't get the best of runs when a couple of places behind Firenze Rosa at Windsor, may be able to land a telling late blow and open his account. Firenze Rosa should again be in the thick of things but Starboy, who did the job well over 7f here last week, could prove most troublesome.

20:40 - CHIZZ DE BIZ (2) is taken to bounce back from her Wetherby disappointment having created a good impression when winning here on her reappearance. Bombshell Bay is feared most ahead of Patty Patch.
