Steve Hughes has one bet for Sunday
With very low key action on Sunday I am just going with the single bet today in the feature contest at Brighton. Oh This Is Us was a winner yesterday (SP 5/2).
Brighton 3.00: Chatham House
A change in tactics recently means Chatham House finally looks like fulfilling his early promise and he could be too classy for lower rated rivals at Brighton today.
In five runs in decent maiden/novice company as a juvenile he was only out of the first three once in races up to a mile. However he continually spoiled his chances by pulling too hard and positive tactics earlier this season proved no help. More recently though he has been settled out in rear and that does seem to be producing the desired results.
He travelled sweetly throughout before being pushed out to win over 7f at Newbury last month. However he should enough natural pace over 6f in the grey horse handicap at Newmarket last time, finishing strongly for second late on. The stiff finish at Brighton will help and this represents a drop in grade.
1.5pts win – Chatham House – 3.00 Brighton – 9/4 general
