Glorious Goodwood Day 5 !!!

Final day at Glorious Goodwood with the group one Nassau stakes the feature race at 3.10 ,will be interesting to see if the Sir Henry Cecil trained MIDDAY can win the race for third time ,though will have to bounce back after disappointing run in Pretty Polly stakes at Curragh last time .


The other six races on Goodwood card look very tough with some very competitive handicaps including the big sprint handicap Stewards Cup with 27 runners going to post.Will just be watching brief on final day at Glorious Goodwood with no suitable betting opportunities on the card.

Glorious Goodwood Day 4 !!!

Day 4 of Glorious Goodwood looks quite interesting with some good looking group races plus the Totesport mile .Going concentrate on first race on the card the Group 3 Glorious stakes over 1 mile 4 furlongs.


1MILE 4F GLORIOUS STAKES GROUP 3 GOODWOOD 2.00
REDWOOD : Consistent 5 year old .won this race last year before going on to win group one Northern Dancer stakes at Woodbine in Canada .Been consistent again this year finishing second behind the ill-fated Rewilding in Dubai,slightly disappointing last time when finishing 8 lengh second behind Crystal Capella in G2 Prince Wales stakes at Newmarket ,though should come on for that run first run for over 3 months.


VERDICT :Redwood & Harris Tweed look the two main contenders  in this group 3 contest.


Harris Tweed looks big danger after finishing good second behind Await the Dawn in G2 Hardwick stakes at Royal Ascot on soft ground.Should again make bold bid from front ,the only slight question mark is fast ground ,all his best form has been on soft surface.


REDWOOD never seems to run bad race and should go well with ideal conditions, 1 mile 4 furlongs on fast ground.The Barry Hills stable seems in lot better form over past week .3-1 looks very fair value with bet365 who paying 1/4 odds 1-2-3

Glorious Goodwood Day 3 !!!

What an amazing performance by Frankel in Sussex stakes yesterday ,must go down as one of the best milers of all time after that performance.Will be interesting to see where he goes next with the Queen Elizabeth 11 stakes at Ascot looking his likely target.


Day 3 at Glorious Goodwood again looks  difficult with some very competitive races ,with the two feature races being group two Goodwood cup over 2 miles and Audi King George stakes over 5 furlongs.Both races look very wide open (5-1 the field) with several horses having live chances.Not really my kind races and Thursday will again just be watching brief with no suitable betting opportunities.

Glorious Goodwood Day 2 !!!

Disappointing start to Glorious Goodwood with Tuesday's bet on Delegator running an absolute stinker finishing last of nine behind impressive winner Strong Suit .Not sure what happened to Delgator though for some reason simply didn't run his race, very disappointing and loss £256 on the day.


Moving on to day 2 at Glorious Goodwood the highlight of the week the G1 Sussex Stakes,in whats being called "The duel on the downs" FRANKEL V CANFORD CLIFFS .With only four runners this looks like being tactical race and not easy to separate the pair ,though with FRANKEL receiving 8LB could just have slight edge in what looks fascinating contest.


The other six races on the Glorious Goodwood card look very tough, with some very competitive races .Will just be watching brief on day two at Glorious Goodwood with no suitable betting opportunities

Glorious Goodwood Day 1 !!!

Tuesday see's the start of five excellent days racing at Glorious Goodwood with three group races on Day one .Starting with the Group 3 Gordon stakes at 2.35 ,followed by Group 2 Lennox stakes at 3.10 & Group 3 Molecomb stakes at 

Going concentrate on the days feature race the group two seven furlong Lennox Stakes at 3.10 ,with all firms already pricing the race up will preview the race today.


7F GROUP TWO LENNOX STAKES GOODWOOD 3.10 
DELEGATOR : High class three year old finishing second in 2000 guineas behind Sea the Stars and also good second behind Mastercraftsman in Group one St James Palace stakes at Royal Ascot .Slightly disappointing last season after winning listed race at Newbury in September ,though bounced back to form winning 6 furlong group 2 Duke of York stakes at York in May .Looked unlucky last time finishing fifth of 16 behind Dream Ahead in group one July Cup ,not getting clearest of runs from bad draw.Will be suited by return to 7 furlongs.


VERDICT :Interesting group two contest with three main contenders ,Strong Suit ,Delegator ,Librano.


Strong Suit should go well after winning G3 Jersey stakes at Royal Ascot and finishing close third in G1 Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly.Looks the main danger receiving 11lb off Delegator.


Libranno front runner, won group three contest at Newmarket last month ,and did finish nose in front of Delegator in July cup ,though had the best draw against the rail that day and will struggle to confirm the form .


DELEGATOR has to concede weight all round ,though looks the class act in this group two contest having shown top form in group one races.The return to 7 furlongs looks sure to suit . 3-1 looks good value.
