Nick Shiambouros returns with a selection from Brighton and one from across the Irish sea...

Back Lilian Baylis in the 15:50 at Brighton

15:50 Brighton - Lilian Baylis

I think Lilian Baylis will go very close in this interesting race.

This daughter of Shamardal finished second to Putting Green at Doncaster earlier this month. She kept on well in the closing stages, but never had a realistic change of delivering a challenge. The winner was not beaten all that far in the Melrose Stakes yesterday.

I think she can get back to winning ways, and represents good value at 3.211/5 on the exchange.

Zaaneh from the bang in-form William Haggas yard will be all the rage. This well-related filly got the better of Teosroyal at Wolverhampton last time out, and may have a little improvement left in her. She faces a stiffer task today and her current price of 2.546/4 is very short to say the least.

Shasag from the Roger Varian yard is worth a mention. She finished a fair second over this course last time out and could give the selection most to do.

16:10 Curragh - Kingfisher

Kingfisher sets the standard in this Irish St Leger trial.

This Galileo colt finished second to Trip To Paris in the Ascot Gold Cup. He met trouble in-running and was bearing down on the winner close home. It is difficult to know if he would have won with a clear run, but nonetheless it was a super effort.

The drop in trip should not inconvenience him and he is fairly priced at 3.02/1 on the exchange.

Stablemate Order Of St George is the main danger to the selection. This three-year-old bolted up in a minor event at Down Royal and has every right to improve. He is the current favourite on the exchange at 2.285/4.

The only other runner with a realistic chance of winning is Good Tradition who finished second at Galway. He may have some improvement in him, but he has a lot to find.
