Brighton Tips and Racecourse Guide

Brighton racecourse sits high above the city and racegoers are treated to some wonderful views of the coastline, as well as some competitive, if low-grade, action.

One of the few racecourses not to have a complete circuit, there horseshoe-shaped track is 1m4f in length.  A very undulating track, it suits course specialists.  Racing takes place from April until October.

Red Alert goes very well here and showed enough on his recent return from a short break at Wolverhampton last time to suggest he can score today.


The eight-time winner has been found a desperately weak race and is off a career-low mark today.  Clifford Lee is fresh from riding the biggest winner of his career to date (Swingalong in the Lowther last week) and the 2-1 looks very fair.


2.10pm Brighton – Red Alert win @ 2-1 (most firms, NAP)
