Hove have produced a stunning card on Saturday, featuring the finals of both the Sussex Cup and the Regency.
The pair of Category 1 competitions offer £10,000 to the winner, with a £2,500 Puppy Cup among others on the undercard.
Sussex Cup Sum Is a Simple Addition
Droopys Addition can land the first big final of the night at 20.17. Gemma Evans has not long taken over the license from Ernie Gaskin, but she has not missed a beat with the kennel having another very solid campaign.
He will need to be on his toes from the lids as there is plenty of early pace in this final but a clear run to halfway should be enough to see him go through the gears and claim the prize.
Gorgeous George to Rule Regency
The perils of tipping up one’s own dog are huge but as long as the track isn’t running deep then Blue Tick George is the one they all have to beat in the Regency at 20.54 for trainer Jim Daly.
He cleared Bo Shine Bullet in the final of the George Ing St Leger at Yarmouth with that hound on his inside again. A slow track would play into the paws of Aayamza Royale but George beat her in the first round and can do so again.
Richie Looks a Potential Star
Winner of the Juvenile Classic at Towcester earlier in July, Brookside Richie can add this puppy cup to his haul. He will move a little to the right out the traps from his draw in one but he has the early pace to do it without inconveniencing himself.
An October ’19 whelp, he has only had eight races in his life for David Mullins. He has all the hallmarks of a star in the making and should confirm that impression in the 18.58.
Lola to Keep Rivals in Her Pocket
There is always something impressive about a ping breaker and Pocket Lola is a great example of a hound who seems to come under the lids as they go up. She has been in flying form of late for Seamus Cahill and can make every yard of the running in the bitches contest at 19.36.
Bockos to Cheat the Draw
Trap four wouldn’t be ideal for Bockos Belly but he is a real class act, making the semi-final stage of the Derby at Towcester last month. He set new figures for that trip in the second round (broken since) when drawn in three so he has the raw speed to overcome this slot at 9.12 for Patrick Janssens.
