Arabian Beauty can prove the star turn on what is a pretty low-key card at Brighton.

The daughter of Shamardal is bred to be a fair bit better than the EBF/Family Friendly Gatwick Airport Fillies Handicap as a half-sister to Group One winner Rio De La Plata, but she has yet to really sparkle in five career starts.

That is not to say she has not won, with a recent victory at a very moderate level giving her that all-important first success which should certainly have boosted her confidence.

However, it was only an average event she claimed as she emerged a length-and-a-quarter victor of an amateur riders' race at Catterick earlier this month, easily overcoming more exposed rivals.

Cheekpieces appeared to work the oracle that day and Arabian Beauty will be equipped with them again this time as she teams up with Kieren Fallon.

A drop back in trip is not entirely in her favour but the conditions of the race favour the three-year-olds so Arabian Beauty can take advantage of that handy pull.

Rock Follies has shown hints of promise in two starts to date and can make it third-time lucky in the Lgobviosly Maiden Auction Stakes.

Lady Cecil's charge could not build on her debut second when turned out at Beverley earlier this month, having to be content with third over the minimum trip on the Westwood.

Beaten just a length and a quarter, Rock Follies should be more than capable of winning something like this.

Nufooth failed to put her best foot forward on quicker ground when last seen so the likely ease at Brighton should be more to her liking in the Tempted Before Takeoff Maiden Stakes.

She was sent off an odds-on favourite at Lingfield in early August but had to make do with second to Red Rebel when upped to just short of a mile.

Richard Hannon drops back in trip again to seven furlongs which should help Nufooth's chances as she perhaps did not quite get home over the longer trip.

Big Generator is a fascinating Irish raider for Paul Nolan at Worcester and is thoroughly worth backing in the toteplacepot Handicap Chase.

The eight-year-old has been in fantastic form of late, winning two of his last three outings and finishing second on the other occasion.

He has mixed and matched his disciplines with victory coming over hurdles at Tipperary in June before following up over fences at Wexford later that month.

Nolan stuck over the bigger obstacles when Big Generator could finish only second back at Tipperary, although that was still a creditable run.

Big Generator has a tendency to jump left so Worcester should play to his strengths and while he has a significantly higher rating now, he still manages to sneak in at the bottom of the handicap and will have the assistance of Richard Johnson.

BRIGHTON: 2.00 Autumns Blush, 2.30 Rock Follies, 3.00 Nufooth, 3.30 ARABIAN BEAUTY (NAP), 4.00 Roman Riches, 4.30 Elle Rebelle, 5.00 Jontleman.
