Five days of top-class racing begin today at Glorious Goodwood and it promises to be a cracking week of racing with the sun expected to shine down. Goodwood is generally accepted as one of the most picturesque racecourses in the UK and we will be very jealous anyone who will be lucky enough to be in attendance! We have brought you our Day 1 thoughts and pointers on action, trying to find a spot of value where we can. Feel free to follow our selections exclusively or let them sway your mind in a particular race, and whatever you back good luck!
1.55 1m 1f 192yds Class 2 bet365 com Handicap –
AJMAN BRIDGE 10/1 EW.
Still relatively lightly raced but gives the impression has bigger races in him.Unlucky not to win last time at Newbury in a slightly lesser event and although has to step up to the mark here, looks to have the ability to do so.Fitness should be bang on after a couple of runs this season and Buick booked to ride today.
2.30 1m 1f 192yds Class 2 bet365 com Handicap –
CATAI GLORY 7/2 (Sky Bet offering money back if Beacon wins)
Beacon won for us last time in ultra impressive fashion last time out and is deservedly odds on in this however we would rather oppose today with Sky bet offering money back if Beacon wins. Our selection has had a busy year and will be suited by dropping back to minimum trip.Mukhmal is expected to do better if he can settle better today and has the hood on to do exactly that.
3.05 7f Class 1 bet365 Lennox Stakes –
Selected last night as one of the members tips. Two NR's this morning means it is disappointingly less of a contest.Probably looking at a 20p Rule 4 so that 2/1 now more like 13/8.
3.40 1m 6f Class 2 bet365 Summer Handicap –
Won a competitive renewal of listed event at York last time and just 2lb higher here can be expected to give his running if the headgear is as effective second time around.
4.15 6f Class 2 bet365 EBF Maiden Stakes –
MUTAFAREREJ 12/1 EW.
Caught the eye on both starts to date and with that experience can put it to good use here. Always prefer to find one with racecourse experience and with the switch to this track a positive can figure.
4.50 1m 0f Class 3 bet365 Handicap –
EXTREMITY 6/1 EW.
Our 2nd members tip sent last night. Been well backed into around the 4/1 mark currently.
