Racing: Sabbiosa for further success.

Byline: BY ARGUS

SABBIOSA can follow up a pleasing seasonal debut and land her second win of the campaign in the Brighton Square Fillies' Handicap at the seaside track this afternoon.

Trained locally at Arundel by John Dunlop, the threeyear-old could be set for a profitable season despite failing to make the frame in her four starts as a juvenile.

However, a few months to mature and a step up in trip saw the penny drop with the filly as she landed the spoils quite easily over a mile at Bath last month.

The form of that race did not look special at the time, but with three of those in behind having come out and won since, it was a competitive heat.

Given the way Sabbiosa won at Bath, she will relish the step up to a mile and a quarter anda 4lb rise in the ratings does not look harsh.

Ocean Pride looks to be on an upward curve and should be up to landing the Griffvale Ltd Supporting Chancy Conditions Stakes at Pontefract's evening meeting.

The two-year-old colt put up a pleasing enough performance on his debut when finishing third in a five-furlong event at Newbury, as he was keeping on well at the finish.

The way he stayed that day suggests he will relish the extra furlong of today's race but an even stronger recommendation is his subsequent win at Chepstow.

Richard Hannon's charge again showed that he was crying out for a step up in trip when flying late to nail gambled-on newcomer Tous Les Deux - who has since gone on to score at Windsor and is thought of as Royal Ascot standard.

The exploits of the runner-up make Ocean Pride's form look pretty smart and this fiverunner race on a stiff track should be tailor made for him.

There is also an afternoon meeting in Yorkshire, at Catterick, where Wyatt Earp can get back on the winning track after just failing at Haydock Park last weekend.

The four-year-old, who was gambled on at the Merseyside track before being sent off the 9-4 favourite, looked to have made a winning move when hitting the front inside the last furlong.

He just got touched of though, going down by a neck, but Richard Fahey's charge looks ready to land the Sarah Lunn Memorial Stakes
