Brighton Racecourse is ready for action – after the new season was put on hold.

Racing at the unique hilltop track gets under way for 2022 with a seven-race card this afternoon.

The scheduled opening fixture ten days ago was transferred to the all-weather at Lingfield Park while an upgrade to weighing room facilities at Brighton was completed.

Some elements of the work were delayed and Brighton were allowed further time by the BHA and ARC.

The improvements were needed to meet new regulations and requirements Today’s first race is at 1.50pm and there is an evening card tomorrow, from 4.25pm.

Press Association tipsters fancy a return to winning ways today for Passionova, down in class for the British EBF Premier Fillies’ Handicap.

Looking ahead, after a couple of all-weather spins, Red Kite has been found a great opportunity to get off the mark for Charlie and Mark Johnston in the Read Kevin Blake On Restricted Maiden Stakes tomorrow.

Bookings are also being taken for a range of fixtures throughout the coming season via
