The Best Horse Racing Tips for Goodwood on Friday
Horse Racing tips for the meeting at Goodwood on Friday, featuring trials for both the Derby and Oaks
Goodwood’s Cocket Hat Stakes and Height Of Fashion Stakes on Friday may not be the significant Classic trial of former years. But the two Listed races should still prove informative for the season ahead and look well up to their usual high standard.
We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for both contests, together with the competitive two mile Best Of British Members Club Handicap at 4.00pm.
We are saddened to hear the passing of Joe Mercer, aged 86.
A wonderful jockey who enjoyed many a great day at Goodwood. Here are three of our favourite memories;
Snow Fairy in 2010 was the last filly to win this race before going on to prove victorious at Epsom in the Oaks. While there is unlikely to be anything of that quality in this year’s renewal the race could throw up one or two talented performers for the season ahead.
The William Haggas-trained Ready To Venture possesses obvious potential following her encouraging seasonal reappearance at Ascot. While both Talbeyah and Godolphin’s Nash Nasha are more than capable of going close. But, despite a rating of only 78, it would be no surprise to see course and distance winner Fairy Cakes outrun her odds for trainer Eve Johnson Houghton.
The daughter of Outstrip showed only minor promise in four starts on the all-weather before switching to turf for the first time at Goodwood earlier this month. Sent off an unconsidered 28/1 chance, the mount of Edward Greatrex simply strolled home from her twelve rivals without being asked a serious question. At a double-figure price, the filly could prove the each-way value of the race.
?’I'd love to see her run in The Oaks. If she does run, I'll be backing her, put it that way!’@Longshot_Ted finally off the fence and gives us our antepost selection for The Oaks ??
A tight six-runner contest in which only Gentleman Joe, a well beaten sixth at Newmarket last time can be confidently discounted, unless the mount of Oisin Murphy improves significantly for his first start on turf following a victory at Kempton in March.
Man Of Riddles won on his only run to date at Wolverhampton and while the Temple City colt takes a big step-up in class here, the mount of Jamie Spencer is open to plenty more improvement. However, this Listed race is likely to be dominated by the four horses at the head of the betting – Stay Well, Yibir, Aleas and Lone Eagle.
Godolphin’s Yibir has already been beaten in two Derby trials this season and is likely to find one or two too good once again. Lone Eagle was the best of these as a juvenile but is vulnerable with a penalty for winning a Group 3 at Newmarket last October.
The Hughie Morrison-trained Stay Well was an eyecatching runner-up on his only run as a juvenile and had little trouble opening his account by eight lengths in a minor contest at Windsor last month. But it is Aleas, from the Ralph Beckett stable, who is expected to take his winning run to four since finishing a promising second on his debut at Salisbury last October.
The mount of Rossa Ryan could hardly have been more impressive in winning a handicap at Haydock last time by almost 10 lengths. And the son of Archipenko should prove even better under Goodwood’s less testing conditions.
The Michael Scudamore-trained Mr Chua, from his seven starts on turf, has only finished outside of the first three on one occasion, that being in last year’s 34-runner Cesarewitch at Newmarket. Despite finishing twentieth in that famous contest, the five-year-old was still not disgraced, only weakening towards the end of that 2m 2f handicap.
An easy winner of a handicap hurdle at Catterick in March, the mount of Silvestre de Sousa disappointed six days later at Southwell when sent off a short-priced favourite. But the gelding has since undergone a wind op and back on the Flat and off a mark only 1lb higher than when finishing second in a decent handicap at York last September, makes plenty of appeal.
East Asia, an easy winner on his first start for trainer Ian Williams at Newbury last week, looks the main danger under a 5lb penalty and with William Buick in the saddle.
