Course specialist Junoesque will look to continue his remarkable record at Brighton when he returns to the seaside venue on Friday, live on Sky Sports Racing.
The evergreen eight-year-old made it eight wins from just 15 runs at Brighton when winning by a whopping 11 lengths here less than a fortnight ago.
Turned out here under a penalty, John Gallagher’s popular eight-year-old should take all the beating and give his growing fan club something to shout about this afternoon (3:20) in a four-runner field.
Most likely to spoil the party might be Torbellino, who went down by only a short head at Lingfield eight days ago and runs off the same mark here today.
