Four more rides follow on Sunday at his local track at Brighton, where he has a good record, starting with Flashy Queen, trained buy Joseph Tuite, followed by Jan de Heem for his boss Ralph Beckett in the London to Gatwick Moscow, then Renoir Lady for Joseph Tuite, in the five furlong handicap, and Gabrial’s Gift trained by David Simcock in the bonus race.
