RACING POST VERDICT 7.45 Brighton......

John Best's LUXFORD got off the mark with a decisive win over C&D last month and ran a big race under a penalty from a tough draw at Kempton 24 hours later. She is open to further progress now back at 1m on turf and has leading claims here. The main dangers are Lawfilly, who didn't get much luck when second behind the selection here 14 days ago, and Jack Blane, a close fourth upped to 1m at Wetherby last time. Another one to keep an eye on is Lagertha, who is a possible improver dropped back in trip on her handicap debut.

And C&D winner Luxford doesn't disappoint at Brighton tonight in deteriorating conditions. Well judged ride by Martin Dwyer getting across to the near running rail on the home straight to win cosily. Congratulations to owners Stuart Mair, Wendy Bush and Steve Summers.

Hiorne Tower

July 12th, 2017

Hiorne Tower hadn't run on the turf since 2014 and his last run on the all weather was back in November 2016 so his comeback couldn't have been sweeter. He made progress 3f out in the 2m handicap at Lingfield under Robert Tart, didn't have a clear run when challenging 2f out and was driven to lead over 1f out. He kept on strongly to win easily by 3 lengths. Congratulations to Jackie Jones.
