Tamachan is set to make Brighton rock
Tamachan may not be one of the best horses to carry the Anthony Oppenheimer colours made famous by the likes of Golden Horn and Cracksman, but she can at least boost her paddock value with victory in the Call Star Sports On 08000 521 321 Handicap at Brighton today.
The Roger Charlton-trained filly has shown a modicum of ability on both starts this season at Salisbury and Newbury over a mile and a quarter.
She was staying on well at the end of those races to suggest the step up to a mile and a half can eke out further improvement.
Punters got their fingers burnt when Illusionist was beaten at odds-on last time, but the Archie Watson-trained youngster can recoup losses in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes at Bath.
Atalanta's Boy can make course experience count by backing up a recent controversial victory and landing an outright success in the Grogger Handicap at Goodwood.
David Menuisier's four-year-olRestless Rose looked sure to improve for her seasonal bow and can confirm that impression by winning the British EBF Fillies' Handicap.
Motivate Me can send punters home happy by taking the concluding Watch Racing TV Fillies' Novice Stakes at Haydock.
