We head south to Sussex in an attempt to get the working week off to a profitable start...

"Whitby Jet can’t be ignored after another solid effort under today’s pilot over C&D last week..."

14:30 - We kick off proceedings with a six-furlong fillies' handicap and it looks a tricky contest. Miss Brazil has lost no caste in defeat since her return to handicaps following a maiden win in July and looks to have enough form in the book to suggest she'll be on the premises. Ginzan is the other to get the nod having placed in all four starts since winning over C&D in July.

15:00 - A sole selection will suffice in the seven-furlong maiden under consideration next in the shape of Best Example, who made an encouraging start to this career in a hot York maiden in July and whose task has been made slightly easier by the withdrawal of Shadow Rock. He looks a decent banker to improve past the opposing field and gain his first trip to the winners' enclosure. 

15:30 - It will be another sole selection to keep us moving forward in the handicap over the same trip which follows and the horse to carry our hopes is Footstepsintherain. There are a few here who looks likely to force the pace which would set things up perfectly for David Dennis' four-year-old who shaped as if a return to form was imminent at Leicester last week.

16:00 - It's a ten-furlong handicap up next and with most arriving at the top of their game it looks a wide open race. Whitby Jet can't be ignored after another solid effort under today's pilot over C&D last week; that followed a fine second at Epsom and he's expected to hold his form and figure once again. Diletta Tommasa's win at Yarmouth last time was her second in July and despite shouldering a 5 lb rise she gave no reason to suggest she can't be on the premises once again here.

16:30 - Tunnel Tiger proved her stamina for this test when adding another creditable placed effort to her resume over C&D recently and is the first to keep on side in the 12-furlong handicap which comes next. Bishop Wulstan is also included in the hope the blinkers continue to revitalise him after his second in a Goodwood seller last month.

17:00 - The final leg of today's perm is a handicap over a mile and the first to get the nod is Ding Ding. She has acquitted herself well on both comeback outings since returning from 11 months off in August and if she continues in that frame of mind she looks likely to play a part here. Pelagian is the other to make the cut in the hope he keeps suspect temperament in check, as he has more than sufficient ability to finish in the money.
