Yesterday was a tough day from the Goodwood blog, we secured some value selections but the results did not go the way we had hoped and we will be looking for much better today. It's hard to be profitable on every day of the big meetings and a blip is understandable. Good luck today whatever you are backing!
These are our thoughts for day 3 at Goodwood:
2.05 1m 1f 192yds Class 2 Fairmont Handicap –
ASTRONEREUS 15/2 EW.
Rainbow Rock ran very well for us when winning last time out and we did like today but were hoping for a bigger price running from out of the weights. Instead, we have gone for the most unexposed horse in the race in the shape of Amanda Perrett's representitive.Looks to have been given a very workable opening mark and should improve a fair chunk today from what we have seen to date. Hopefully can get us off to a winning start on the third day.
2.35 6f Class 1 Qatar Bloodstock Richmond Stakes –
Ivawood is a very short price here, and although we wouldn't put you off having a bet, it's too short for us to advise anything else.
3.10 2m 0f Class 1 Artemis Goodwood Cup –
CAVALRY MAN 11/2 EW.
Many have this down as a Brown Panther/Estimate showdown and we think the Godolphin representative has possible been overlooked here by many. Both the front two in the market have their doubts and will have to show their best again if they want to come out on top and our selection can be sure to run his race.Impressed on all three starts this season.
3.45 1m 6f Class 1 Sterling Insurance Lillie Langtry Stakes –
STELLA BELLISSIMA 7/1 EW (member's tips from last night)
Showed a good attitude to win a Newbury maiden and it is fascinating to see John Gosden put in at this level second time up. Should be suited by the step up in trip and looks worth having a go with, with the price starting out more generous than we had anticipated.
4.20 7f Class 2 EBF British Stallion Studs New Ham Maiden Fillies Stakes –
THUNDER IN MYHEART 7/2.
An interesting 2yo contest and one where there are sure to be plenty to keep an eye on. The one we like is Thunder In Myheart who ran well on debut finishing off well and is sure to have taken a lot out of that race. Jamie Spencer takes over in the saddle today.
4.50 7f Class 2 Tatler Handicap –
IFWECAN 9/1 EW (Member's tips from last night)
We are keen on both the Johnston horses that run here but slight preference for Ifwecan over Almargo. The selection was impressive on penultimate start and now dropped down to 7 furlongs can make a bold bid to make all from handy draw.
5.25 1m 1f Class 3 Qipco Apprentice Handicap –
JODIES JEM 9/1 EW.William Jarvis having a good spell currently and we fancy his representative to go well in the last.Dropped back down to a decent mark and was well fancied last time when was a little unlucky and if can build on that should go close today.
