Going news, market movers and punting pointers as Brighton gets ready to rock

There is a seaside theme to Wednesday's action with Brighton, Yarmouth and Sligo racing by the coast

Brighton's three-day summer festival kicks off on Wednesday and although temperatures may be a little milder, the sun is set to shine for the track's showpiece meeting. 

The Bombardier Brighton Mile Challenge Trophy Handicap (3.10), a Class 4 event for horses rated no higher than 80, is the feature on day one with Lord Clenaghcastle and Pendo, first and second 12 months ago, back again.


Wednesday cards


Continuing the seaside theme, Yarmouth and Sligo race by the coast in the evening, along with Kempton, while Chepstow steps in for parched Bath to stage an afternoon card along with Pontefract and Brighton.


Going report

Brighton – first race 1.40
Good to firm, firm in places (7.2 on the GoingStick). Rail movements: +3yds to all races

Chepstow – 2.00
Good, good to firm in places (8.0 on the GoingStick).

Pontefract 2.20

What to read

The connections of Classic Seniority, the sprinter banned from racing in Britain for six months after his latest starting stalls misdemeanour at Goodwood on Saturday, hope to race the blacklisted horse in Ireland.

It has been an unbelievable summer for top jockey James Doyle in Britain, but it is another member of his family making headlines on the track in the United States, where older sister Sophie continues to climb the ranks.

Rebecca Bastiman will on Friday become the first British trainer to face charges of a positive cobalt test after the BHA's retrospective testing system shone the spotlight on handicapper John Caesar following his success in a race at Wolverhampton two years ago.


What to watch

The Postcast team look back on last week's racing at Goodwood and Galway, before taking aim at this weekend's big-race action from Deauville and the Curragh.

RPTV visited David Menuisier's stables in Sussex to meet stable star Thundering Blue among others . . .


The best of Racing Post Sport

The US PGA Championship starts at Bellerive Country Club, St Louis, on Thursday, and Steve Palmer believes he has found a player with the perfect game for the course. 

Garbine Muguruza produced a meek defence of her Wimbledon title but the Spaniard has a chance to get back to winning ways at the WTA Rogers Cup on Wednesday according to Joe Champion. 


Final thought 

Jockey Jason Watson, hero of Saturday's Stewards' Cup, rides for the first time as a 3lb claimer today and has a bumper book of seven rides to look forward to at Brighton, which has been a lucky track for him so far.

Watson has eight winners from 32 rides at the seaside track to his name at a healthy 25 per cent strike-rate and looks well placed to add to that tally today.
