Whitecrest has been cherry-picked an eminently winnable opportunity at Brighton.

John Spearing's veteran mare has already won four times at the East Sussex venue, including over this course and distance in May.

And though she was not necessarily a factor on her last visit to Brighton a week ago, Whitecrest was not beaten far into fourth place to prove she is not yet done with this season.

This six-furlong handicap lacks strength and depth as most of her rivals are bang out of form.

Whitecrest is also appealingly handicapped as she races at Brighton on the same mark off which she won at Lingfield on May 24 - her third triumph on the bounce.

The daughter of Ishiguru has had a demanding campaign - this will be her 16th start of the year - but she is a very tough horse who should continue to pay her way throughout the autumn.

It would be folly to dismiss her claims in such a weak-looking race.

Everkyllachy is worth a little look in the concluding five-furlong handicap on the card.

Stan Moore's sprinter made a sudden return to form at Chepstow in August when she pocketed a small race by a short head under Hollie Doyle.

The three-year-old filly was then sent into action at this track a fortnight ago and she was far from disgraced off a 4lb higher mark.

Everkyllachy stayed on encouragingly to occupy third place behind Her Terms, to whom she succumbed by just three-quarters of a length.

That form should put her bang in the picture for top honours at a track which seemingly holds no terrors.

Flyboy deserves respect when he goes to post at Carlisle for a seven-furlong handicap.

The four-year-old gelding is a decent operator on his day and really ought to have won more than once in an up-and-down sort of career.

Richard Fahey has done a fair job with him since his transfer from David O'Meara's yard, though, as he has been placed on three of his five starts for the Malton handler.

His last effort at Epsom, when seventh in a good handicap as the 100-30 favourite, can be forgotten about as he was denied a clear run inside the penultimate furlong and the game was up from there on in.

Before that, Flyboy was defeated by just a short head in a seven-furlong handicap at Leicester, so that should be the prescient formline with this in mind.

The gelded son of Zoffany will almost certainly remain competitive off a mark of 78, while the possibility of testing conditions ought not to be an issue.

There is an awful lot to like about him in a humdrum encounter.
