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.

Brighton Tips

UK Racing Tips – 26/04

Breaking Light ran a really nice race to finish second on debut over this course and distance last year.  An expensive purchase as a yearling in France, she has a lovely pedigree and looks the type to progress further this term.  Karl Burke has his team in fine form and at 9/2, she looks a good each-way bet.

RECOMMENDED BET: 7.25 Ayr – Breaking Light ew @ 9/2 (various)


Verreaux Eagle is dropping in grade after running in class 4 company on the All-Weather since the turn of the year.  She ran well at Brighton last summer, represents an in-form team, and is capable of returning to winning ways for Ed Dunlop.

RECOMMENDED BET: 2.20pm Brighton – Verreaux Eagle win @ 5-1 (most firms)


Beau Geste is on a decent mark, now 5lbs lower than when winning at Brighton in July 2021.  He has been running over the wrong trip of late, but is back at a mile and has the assistance of David Probert in the saddle.

RECOMMENDED BET: 4.33pm Brighton – Beau Geste win @ 3-1 (most firms)
