Silvestre De Sousa could be the jockey to follow at Brighton this afternoon with all three of his rides holding decent chances.

The Brazilian gets the leg up on the Chris Dwyer-trained COMMAMCHE in the competitive 6f handicap (2.50pm) and the six-year-old is a fair price given he’s dropped to a good mark and has won over track and trip. That came in June 2013 off a mark of of 70 and he went on to defy a mark of 81 later that season, so he really ought to be competitive off today’s rating of 62.

He finished well beaten off 65 last time but the ground was unsuitably soft on that occasion and on his reappearance, whereas today he has the good ground he needs to show his best. It’s also fair to say his stable is now in much better form and, indeed, the last fortnight has been highly productive with six winners from just 13 runners. All were ridden by the champion jockey whose strike rate for the yard in the last five seasons now reads an impressive 26% for a £1 level-stakes profit of £24.84, while his overall strike rate at the track is a healthy 21% for an £8.21 profit.
