Tuesday we have just the two flat cards, Beverley stage the better quality racing with quite good looking conditions race at 3.30.
The Dandy Nicholls trained Tax Free should be difficult to beat here, taking big drop in class after finishing good second behind Astrophysical Jet in group 3 contest at the Curragh last time,though going to be quite short price around the 6-5 mark,and last years winner Captain Dunne looks bit of danger,interesting race but not betting race for me.
For the days only bet we go down south to Folkestone, and quite interesting 1 Mile 1 furlong maiden race at 4.30.
1 MILE 1F 149YDS 3-Y-0+ MAIDEN CLASS 5 FOLKESTONE 4.50
NERVES OF STEEL:Promising second on Debut over course/distance at Folkestone, behind Doon kalal ,beaten 3.75 lenghs that form has been boosted with 3RD & 5TH from that race both winning next time.Finished 4TH last time at Goodwood in 1 Mile 2F maiden race behind the M.Stoute trained Longliner ,would been closer there but was badly impeded inside the final furlong .Has to reverse form with likely favourite Santosa though without that interference there would been very little between the pair.
DANGER ; SANTOSA looks big danger after showing plenty improvement on her second start last time at Goodwood Henry Cecil stable remains in good form.though looks very short price here at around 5-4
VERDICT: NERVES OF STEEL & SANTOSA look closely matched on Goodwood form and should be close between the pair,at the prices NERVES OF STEEL looks much better value at around 4-1 mark.
