Brighton Tips: Illusional
Mark Johnston is 4/4 with his two-year-olds at Brighton this season and this unraced son of Bernardini could be useful.
It’s a long way from Middleham in North Yorkshire to Brighton, therefore Mark Johnston’s runners always deserve respect on the south coast. Illusional makes his debut in the 2.55 and it’s interesting that connections have opted from Brighton.
Mark Johnston is currently 4/4 with his juveniles at the track this season whilst owner Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum is 4/6 at Brighton in 2017.
The opposition might be slightly stronger than expected with Luca Cumani, Charlie Appleby and Henry Candy sending experienced runners to the track but so far their form has been moderate at best.
