Brian Hughes rides at the Racecourse he has won the most at.

Brian is at Sedgefield today.  A track where he has won an impressive 132 times previously.  Will he get in the Winners enclosure today?  Find out what he thinks below.

12.40 Ettila De Sivola

Ettila De Sivola won a bumper on racecourse debut at Doncaster a year ago.  He tackles hurdles for the first time today and I am looking forward to a good performance. 

Main Danger

Emma Lamb unseated on the run in with the race at her mercy in October and along with Eclat De Star, looks dangerous.

1.10 Inch Lala

Inch Lala, a maiden after seven rules attempts, ran well on chasing bow at Ludlow 22 days ago finishing third beaten 10 lengths.  The form of the race has been franked, as the first two have won in the interim.  She should improve for the run and be right in contention with Troubled Soul an easy winner over fences at Kelso the one to beat despite an eight pound rise.

Main Danger

Main danger will come from Troubled Soul.

1.40 Culmination

A flat and hurdles winner, he returns after a break of 559 days.  He is working well at home and I hope he can put in a good run despite the long lay off. 

Main Danger

Golden Jeffrey and Apterix are in good form and may dominate.

2.15 Lac Sacre

Lac Sacre, a winner of four races under rules, is a most consistent type finishing second in four of his last five outings.  He returns after a good break of 224 days and should have every chance in this five-runner chase.

Main Danger

Socksy is the main rival to my horse who deserves another win after so many silver medals.

3.20 Desai

Desai, a well-bred type, makes his racecourse debut in the concluding bumper facing five rivals.  Champagne Well ran a good race at Chepstow recently and along with the expensive purchase, Big Bad Bear look the principals..I am looking forward to a big run from Desai.

Main Danger

Champagne Well and Big Bad Bear will challenge.
