It was a successful first day at Goodwood with two winners and two 2nd places for VHT followers, although the dynamic of the day would have been different if Ajman Bridge had battle off the attentions of the gritty Sennockian Star, and despite trading 1/33 in running came up short. Both short priced favourites of the day got turned over and what appeared a tough day for most went down successful in our eyes.
Good luck today however you use the selections:
1.55 Goodwood Stakes (Handicap) –
LIEUTENANT MILLER 10/1 EW (Sky Bet offering money back if the favourite wins)
Maid In Rio is hard to oppose but does look a little under priced currently at 11/8 and with the Sky Bet offer is worth taking on. Lieutenant Miller has been a regular selection for us in the past and should run another good race today in our eyes.Ran a creditable seventh at Ascot last time and this doesn't look quite as tough from 1lb lower in the ratings.
2.30 Neptune Investment Management Gordon Stakes (Group 3) –
SOMEWHAT 4/1 (Members tip from last night)
The first of two selections that was sent to members last night and our strongest fancy for the day as a result.Selection has come back as a 3yo and run some decent efforts in defeat but likely to see the best now stepped up in trip.Yard had a good day yesterday and will be looking to get a winner on the board on Day 2
3.05 Qipco Sussex Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1) –
This should be a fascinating race but not one from a betting opportunity view so we wouldn't advise anything here. Fully expect Kingman to beat Toronado but price is too short to back. For anyone determined to have a bet the forecast of Kingman/Toronado pays 1/2 with bet365.
3.40 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes (Group 2) –
PALLISTER 12/1 EW.
Improved at a rate of knots and this is a big ask to step up into this grade but there is nothing in terms of price that tempts us in here.Step up in trip should suit and likely to give a brave performance. Consider backing your place bet with betfair in case there is a NR you do not want to miss out on the third place pay out.
4.15 Markel Insurance Maiden Fillies' Stakes –
A fascinating newcomer who we realy like the look of and the little bit of market support sways us into being more confident Michael Bell representitive.Ticks the boxes on paper and with Moore on board should give a good account of herself first time up.
4.50 EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Fillies' Handicap –
PRINCIPLE EQUATION 6/1 EW.
Water Hole would have been a fascinating proposition here and we were very close to tipping last night had the price been bigger so the withdrawel completely opens up the field here.Selection steps up in trip for handicap debut and with SDS on board looks a good thing.
5.25 Turf Club Handicap –
LITTLE SHAMBLES 16/1 EW.(Members tip from last night)
The second of two selections that was sent to members last night and our strongest fancy for the day as a result.Should relish ground conditions and can bounce back to form despite the draw.
