Verdict

The combination of hold-up tactics, a drop to the minimum trip and the unique demands of Brighton has had a rejuvenating effect on Stonecrabstomorrow and the eight-year-old will be popular in this hat-trick attempt. However, he will need things to drop his way and has plenty to do from a handicapping perspective to confirm placings with Welsh Inlet. This is also a more competitive race than his last two contests and KINIGI, also a course and distance winner, is taken to prove too strong despite being asked to concede weight all round. He's a pacey sort and recent efforts have indicated a return to the minimum trip will prove beneficial. Billy Red, yet another course and distance winner, cannot be ruled out either.
