The Covex Kid under Stefano Cherchi won by five lengths against Poetic Force at Brighton last time out

Brighton is hosting a three-day festival this week from Wednesday and there are big races throughout the meeting and there’s sure to be a huge chance of backing a big winner or two.

Brighton racing tips

1:40 p.m.: The Defiant 5/2 (NAP)

A few prolific guys in the opener on the seaside track, most notably with 11-year-old veteran Boom The Groom, who won last time out and is approaching a mammoth 100 career carries.

Moving up to Class 4 might be a bit too much for him though and a five year younger gelding is the most appealing and could easily attract a lot more pre-start market support.

Ran a huge run finishing fifth at the Goodwood Festival in a Class 2 at a whopping 100/1 prize money and given that run there could be more to come this season.

He received 14 pounds from the high-weight desert team who have gained a lot this season, but going 9-12 is a big ask.

3:40 p.m.: The Covex Kid 9/2 (NB)

Tony Carroll is sending a whole host of his horses to Brighton this week with four entries in this race alone.

De Vegas Kid could be a great out and back bet priced at 12/1 and Poetic Force at 17/2 could also provide place claims among a field of 13 players.

The shape of the course can be a bonus here at this sharp course and there are plenty of course and distance winners but The Covex Kid beat Poetic Force by five lengths last time out over course and distance and looks to be the one tear down.

9/2 starts the field and despite an 8-pound increase, it looks like a solid price under Stefano Cherchi, who takes off 3 pounds.

Kempton Racing Tips

6:20 a.m.: 4/6 of the lunar eve

This Dubawi colt won on his Nottingham debut in June and looks on paper to be a promising guy.

The combination of being ridden by Frankie Dettori and John & Thady Gosden is more of a boost to support this well-bred Moonlight Cloud colt.
