Broughtons Fancy NAP/NB
I have said on numerous occasions course form is vital at Brighton, it’s a unique course but it is still possible to find horses that have no course form. Broughtons Fancy looks like she can handle the course but it’s also down to the jockey, you need a jockey with good hands, well balanced and experienced.
“Although an intelligent jockey will beat experience any day for me, the part of the course that catches a lot of jockeys and horses out is the downhill part. It’s the steepest descent of any course in the world then comes the uphill final furlong finish. Too many horses lose too much stamina on the downhill part because the jockey loses control.
“Broughtons Fancy looks a good size for Brighton, in theory fillies should be suited to Brighton more than their male counterparts as they are built smaller and are more nimble. I don’t see the course being a problem today but you never truly know till you see them run there. Broughtons Fancy has been running better since changing stables and the trainer does have a decent record here.”
