Unibet 3 Boosts A Day Goodwood Handicap
Smart Champion 1pt win only 8/1
Its hard to ignore how well treated this one looks coming in here and having an additional 5lb taken off by Saffie Osbourne. Has run well in his races around here previously including when 3rd in this race last year. Arrives in decent form and should take all the beating from the bottom of the handicap.
Kloud Gate 0.5pt EW 33/1 7 places Skybet
Has some very useful form on the flat and comes here in form having landed a double over obstacles in recent months. Ought to be competitive from this mark returning to the flat and is well worth a try at these odds with 7 places available. Has th visor on that seems to have sparked his revival.

Unibet Golden Mile Handicap
Johan 1pt win only 8/1
6 wins from just 13 runs and still looks to be improving. Form of his latest win appears to be working out and gets a draw that is probably worth a couple of lengths here today. Ryan moore has a decent record in the race with 3 wins in the last 5 years including a 4 year old for this yard in 2018.
Qaysar 0.5pt EW 50/1 6 places
Dropping in class and ought to be competitive from this falling mark despite the wide draw. If Pat Dobbs is able to get him some cover he could well run on late for a place. Enjoys a little cut under foot so the drying dead ground should be no problem. Big price for one that sits on his last winning mark in handicap company.

L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Glorious Stakes
Without A Fight 1pt win only 10/1
A good value alternative to the G1 winning favourite who arrives here with a little bit to prove following a very poor run 56 days ago. The selection is far less exposed than most of his rivals and arrives here with the yard bang in form following a break to freshen up. 2nd in a G3 on return and finished ahead of a couple of these that day. Forgiven last run when excuses should go well again today.

Sterling Knight 1pt win only 12/1
A much improved run on second outing when second to yesterdays G2 winner Asymmetric. Poor next time but is worth a try here now making handicap debut having been gelded. Joe Fanning is an interesting booking and I’d expect to possibly see this one try and do it from the front with that booking given this ones pedigree. Opening mark looks fair here today given that run at Newmarket in similar conditions.

TDN Australia Handicap
Scampi 1pt win only 8/1
Oisin Murphy has hopped off the Godolphin runner who won comfortably last time out to retain the ride on this boy for Andrew Balding. Has proved fairly useful in his last couple of handicap runs and could do better here at a track where the emphasis sits more on speed.
