Mungo’s Quest 1pt win only 10/1 (600Eps) Nap

A 20 race maiden who has took some time to get to grips with racing and is still learning even now. More recently he has gone close a couple of times on the AW but its his latest run here that has sparked our interest. Epsom is a quirky course that not all horses can cope with due to the undulations. Last time out however the selection chased home a subsequent and well handicapped winner from a yard that was on fire at the time. Another chance is afforded here now stepping up in trip, where there is just enough in the breeding to suggest that could help and returning to the track off the same mark where we have seen his best effort to date.

Foresee 1pt win only 11/2 (635Eps) Nb

Unlucky to run into a massive improver last time out over CD. Has a CD win under his belt too which gives us the impression that this track suits and gets the best out of this horse. Even at 8 years old we are still seeing improvements and we don’t think this one has reached his peak just yet. Still relatively unexposed on turf and may yet have a little more to offer under todays rider.

Polar Ice 1pt win only 13/2 (455Nott) Iwac

Very lightly raced maiden who has shown snippets of ability on a couple of occasions to date. Didn’t really take to the surface at Wolverhampton last time out and is of interest stepping up again in trip today for a yard that excels with these sorts. All the emphasis in the breeding seems to be on stamina and this 3yo is sure to come good soon. Connections have a rich affiliation with the stable and these staying types and well worth a punt returning to turf up in trip.

Fantastic Ms Fox 1pt win only 13/2 (245Strat) Nnb

Scored a 2 mile Listed event as a juvenile for previous yard but didn’t kick on after that and was somewhat disappointing. Has changed yards now however and goes for the very shrewd Dr Newland for the first time today following 8 months off the track. Has a bit to prove still but this yard is strong with these types and have a very good record here too. Hard to ignore given this yards record of getting one ready.

#GloriousGoodwood Day 2

13:50 Goodwood 28 Jul 2021

Unibet ’15 To Go’ Handicap

Recovery Run 0.5pt EW 16/1 4 places (Coral/Lad)

A very useful 2yo who has put a line through a couple of lesser efforts this year with an improved performance last time out. Capable of better yet and if able to cope with this testing ground today is bang there on previous form with a few of the market principals today. Eased a couple of pounds following that latest run and looking to be on a very competitive mark.

14:25 Goodwood 28 Jul 2021

Whispering Angel Oak Tree Stakes

Vadream 1pt win only 9/2

Entered the tracker following an eye catching run last time out at York. That run backed up the form of her previous efforts in the 1000 Guineas and the Jersey Stakes. Back up in trip here and on ground that looks to suit and should see her at her very best today. We may just have a G1 horse that has snuck in here getting weight from many of her rivals.

15:00 Goodwood 28 Jul 2021

Markel Molecomb Stakes

Nymphadora 1pt win only 9/1

Taken to bounce back from a lesser performance last time. Was due to run at Ascot last Saturday in a similar race and we can only think that the quick ground that day as with her last run didn’t suit. The favourite was impressive enough last time out but we would rather take our chances on this still unknown filly from the Andrew Balding stable who could well just be a different gravy at this longer trip with some give in the ground. Won going away in a listed race back in May and that race looks far above ordinary.

15:35 Goodwood 28 Jul 2021

Qatar Sussex Stakes

Lope Y Fernandez 0.5pt Ew 16/1

Placed 4 times in G1 company last term and is no forlorn hope here for Aiden O Brien. Soft ground is a slight concern but with little rain forecast and a drying breeze we are hopeful that he will handle todays conditions. Track should suit and there will be plenty of pace on which could just set it up for one that has snuck under the radar. Finished runner up in the Queen Anne Stakes last time out, a race that has produced 8 of the last 15 winners of this race. However the St James Palace winners also do well which goes in the favour of Poetic Flare.

British Stallion Studs Alice Keppel EBF Fillies’ Conditions Stakes

NO BET

16:45 Goodwood 28 Jul 2021

British Ebf Premier Fillies’ Handicap

Prado 1pt win only 17/2

Unexposed and somewhat of an unknown quantity over this new longer trip. Hard to know whether she will stay this far and will no doubt be produced late under a Jamie Spencer drive. One thing we know for sure however is that conditions play into her favour and that can not be said for many of this field. Has gone well here before and this track should suit with how it puts the emphasis on speed for one stepping up in trip.

17:20 Goodwood 28 Jul 2021

World Pool Handicap

Magical Wish 0.5pt EW 16/1

Runner up in this race 12 months ago from a 4lb higher mark so its fair to say that he is sitting on a fair mark coming in here. Conditions look to suit and this one is capable of a big run for the trainer that has won this race on 3 occasions.

Saunton 1pt win only 10/1 (805 Leic) Nb

Much improved run last time out having possibly gone off a little to hard in front before fading late on. Could possibly come on for that run a little today and is still learning the game so a possible improver too. On that evidence he does not look harshly treated here and will hopefully be able to build on that latest run.

Amberose 0.5pt EW 16/1 (125Perth) Outsider

Goes well fresh and has also shown a liking for this track having placed twice from just 3 runs over CD. Will enjoy conditions here today and returns to the track on a very attractive mark. Was placed here on his return over CD from 10lb higher last year and is well worth a small punt here given his price today. Great EW value.

Frau Georgia 1pt win only 15/2 (200Perth) Iwac

Interesting contender upped in trip and back over fences for what will be only a second run over the bigger obstacles. Disappointed on first attempt but that run came following a break and in what turned out to be a fairly decent race. On the evidence of her best form over hurdles she goes into this fairly well treated and is one to note being the yards only runner on the card making a near 900 mile round trip from Conkwell Grange.

Golden Town 1pt win only 9/1 (235Perth) Nap

twice a CD winner and placed a further 4 times from 8 runs at this trip here. 8lb lower than when runner up here back in April and only 1lb above that last CD win. So on evidence is well treated and back at the track where we see him at his best. Yard have been in fine form (3/9 in the last 14 days) and Charlotte Jones is very profitable to follow riding for the yard with one of the best LSP returns i have seen which currently sits at +200. Needs to do better than last time out but hopefully a return to this venue will help.

Glorious Goodwood Day 1

13:50 Goodwood 27 Jul 2021

Unibet ‘you’re On’ Chesterfield Cup Handicap

Sky Defender 1pt win only 10/1

Second last year to the re opposing stablemate Maydanny. Weighted to reverse that run this term if able to bounce back from a couple of lesser efforts. Back on his last winning mark and Mark Johnston’s runners always warrant respect here at the Festival.

14:25 Goodwood 27 Jul 2021

Unibet Vintage Stakes

Angel Bleu 1pt win only 7/1

Not at his best in the Coventry stakes behind Berkshire Shadow, but had previous put another of today’s market principals to the sword in Lusail so is well worth a try here at what looks to be a more suitable trip in conditions that he has already shown a liking for. Turned out quickly, hopefully will settle better today.

15:00 Goodwood 27 Jul 2021

Unibet Lennox Stakes

Fivethousandtoone 0.5pt EW 33/1 5 places Skybet

Runner up in the Mill Reef last term and not disgraced in the Dewhurst next time out. Yet to get going this term and its hard to say wether he has trained on or not. Appears to be the pick of the two King Power runners on Jockey booking and we take a chance that SDS has got it right.

Back To Goodwood Handicap

Blue De Vega 1pt win only 14/1

Previous Heavy ground winner who is on a very attractive mark at present. Oisin Murphy takes the ride which offers plenty of encouragement given the options he must of had here. Needs to bounce back but has plenty in favour today.

16:45 Goodwood 27 Jul 2021

British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes

Monet’s Sunrise 1pt win only 12/1

Hannon and Moore teamed up to win this with a newcomer in 2018, and this one looks to be a similar sort for the yard. Well related and dangerous should the money come for him here.

17:20 Goodwood 27 Jul 2021

Unibet Fillies’ Handicap

Urban Violet 3/1 No bet

17:50 Goodwood 27 Jul 2021

World Pool Ebf Fillies’ Handicap

Shepherds Way 1pt win only 7/1

Dropping back in class here having run well in a C2 last time out, still looks to be on a fair mark and will appreciate this testing ground today. Better than her last run and 6f on testing ground could be the key to more improvement.

Siyahamba 1pt win only 8/1 (130Bev) Nnb

Won this race from a similar mark 2 years ago but was unable to match that effort here 12 months ago. Has on board today a very valuable 7lb claimer who would be capable of getting this one up should the yard have him ready at the first time of asking. Has gone well fresh before.

Impressor 1pt win only 12/1 (240Bev) Nap

Needs considering today from this much reduced mark. Has dropped markedly in the weights since the return of the year and showed signs of recovery last time out too in first time blinkers. Blinkers are persevered with here and eased another couple of pound, has to go close.

King Of Tonga 1pt win only 12/1 (350Bev) Iwac

Been given a huge chance by the handicappers here following a couple of poor runs. Comes here today with the yard going well however and if able to rediscover the form from just a couple of runs back in June has to go close here today. Ideal conditions today so running out of excuses.

One To Go 1pt win only 5/1 (425Bev) Nb

Lost his way on the AW over the winter and has been off since. Worth a try here returning to action from a much needed break. Goes from a much reduced mark and comes in with the yard going well. Has gone well at this venue previously too so hopefully the return will spark a revival.

Attaboy Roy 1pt win only 8/1 (215Ayr) Nap

Last couple of runs can be forgiven after not getting home over 7f and racing alone and getting the fractions wrong next time. Previously had put in a very likeable performance at Thirsk in a race that has since worked out pretty well. Has been given a freshen up before coming here and does so with the yard on fire having banged in 5 winners from their last 16 runners for a 31% strike in the last 14 days. Connor Beasley is also in the form of his life with 10 winners in the past 2 weeks and will be full of confidence today.

Bowman 1pt win only 11/2 (320Ayr) Nnb

Takes a noticeable step down in grade here today from the company he has been keeping since his win on reappearance at Lingfield. Has a win on Good to Firm to his name already and is worth a try on this sounder surface. That race at Lingfield has worked out particularly well and if he is able to transfer that form to this sounder surface then this one could be well ahead of the handicapper today.

Mi Capricho 1pt win only 9/2 (430Ayr) Nb

Narrowly denied in a hat trick attempt last time out and goes from the same mark here today. Was given plenty to do last time out coming from way off the pace and almost got up late on. Is closely matched with half of this field but is taken to confirm the form he has over them again today. CD winner getting ideal conditions today.

Katharine Place 1pt win only 10/1 (535Wolv) Iwac

Has been running consistently well and despite doing so has now slipped down the weights to a very handy mark. Comes here with the yard bang in form having won with 4 of their last 8 runners. Previous CD winner who is weighted to go very close returning to the AW.

Silvestris 1pt win only 11/1 (420Muss) Nb

One of 3 runners in here from Mark Johnston’s yard and all 3 hold decent chances. The selection is the less exposed than the other 2 and the rest of the field for that matter except for Noble Crusade today’s favourite. He was beaten just over 3L by Noble 2 runs back but is some 7lb better off today with F Larson’s claim and could be fitter too as that run was off the back of a short break.

Never Dark 1pt win only 11/1 (515Muss) Nap

Has put in 3 very decent runs since joining this yard from Andrew Balding and is weighted to reverse the form of his latest run in behind Good Luck Fox. A Mullen takes the ride over stablemate Glory Fighter making him the pick of the yards runners. Was forced to try and make all lto and should get a better tow into this race giving him every chance.

Fennaan 0.5pt EW 28/1 5 places Skybet (615Muss) Outsider

Below his best last term and was very underwhelming on his return 11 days ago. Is starting to look very well treated however and the yard have gone in with a few similar sorts in the past month. 3 of his 4 wins to date have come at this trip although he does stay further so could try and take this from the front and try to outstay his rivals here.

Auckland Lodge 1pt win only 8/1 (510Ponte) Iwac

One from the tracker who is coming to the boil and is worth another try from this mark today. Was a close up 4th having raced out wide on her own last time out and could have done with some company at the business end. Won from 11lb higher as a 2 year old so ought to be capable of taking a race like this soon.

Lady Celia 1pt win only 6/1 (245Newc) Nb

Previous course winner who has been knocking loudly on the door lately. Was put up as a selection last time out at Carlisle when narrowly denied and we stick with her today in first time cheekpieces. Its a bit of a chancy one up against the good looking favourite but if those blinkers can get her to sharpen a little she is dangerous returning to the Tapeta here.

Yimou 1pt win only 12/1 (520Newm) Nap

Winless since last July but been running creditably well for some time. Put in a rare poor run last time out which we are willing to overlook here today. Returns to the more suitable 6f trip over which 3 of his 4 wins to date have come on. All 4 wins to date have come on Good to Firm ground which he gets today. Has eased again in the weights and is now sitting on a very dangerous mark.

Pride Of Hawridge 1pt win only 9/1 (530Sal) Iwac

Lightly raced and drops immediately back down in trip with cheek pieces applied following an ordinary looking handicap debut. Dropped 5lb in the weights for that run and takes a small drop in grade here for what looks to be a little bit of a plot. Jockey P Millman is 3 from 7 at Salisbury for a 43% strike and is 4 wins and 3 placed from 17 for connections with a LSP of +27.50. Could be something or nothing but seems a very choreographed move on paper.

Enduring 1pt win only 11/2 (735Sal) Nnb

Has some very promising form in the book running well against very decent looking opposition. Most of this form however has come on the AW and he’s yet to show the same level of form on the turf so is a little bit of a gamble here. Race looks wide open and this one has the pick of the form on offer, comes here receiving weight for age from opposition that looks slightly more exposed.

Blow Your Horn 1pt win only 4/1 (230Asc) Nnb

Was given too much to do but finished off his race strongly on his first attempt at this trip and had a couple of these today in behind. Should be able to confirm that form again today and now the question of stamina has been answered can be ridden more prominently and get a better position. Still unexposed at this longer trip and should go very close today.

Top Class Angel 1pt win only 4/1 (522Newm) Nb

One from the tracker who was beaten by a well handicapped winner last time out who has since gone on to win again. This horse actually won this race for his previous yard last year from just 2lb lower. Looks to be fairly treated, conditions in favour and has a CD win already so plenty to like in a wide open race.

Escobedo 1pt win only 7/1 (752Newm) Nap

Back down in trip today and looks to be the pick of the Hannon runners judged on jockey bookings. Form of his reappearance run has been franked plenty since making todays mark look a solid one. First time blinkers applied and could well sharpen him up a little too.

Roman Dynasty 1pt win only 10/1 (822Newm) Iwac

Another one from the tracker who looks to be well overpriced here dropping in grade. Easing down the weights and will find a race soon enough. Hard to write off in a race of this magnitude given his breeding and levels of ability he has shown to date. Quicker ground should play into favour despite last run which can be forgiven here.

Barrington 1pt win only 8/1 (550Donc)

On a long losing run but running with purpose and putting in some very consistent performances over the last 12 months. Returning from a lay off last time out and not disgraced either, should be sharper for that run and has been eased again in the weights coming into this. Get the very valuable 7lb claim of Frederick Larson effectively putting him on a mark of 53 today, a career low mark by a very long way. Returns to faster ground which will suit and has no excuses left. Has to go close with the yard going well.

Union Rose 0.5pt EW 40/1 (100Sand)

A 2 times CD winner who has fallen to a very workable mark as a result of some below par performances this term. Has shown a few sparks of hope however which offers encouragement returning here from such a lowly mark. Often takes a while to get going following a break and generally gets going around Aug/Sept so this may be a race or two too soon but there is no way we can leave him here today some 5lb below his last winning mark from 10 moths ago and with the help of todays 5lb claimer. Whatever happens he is one to keep an eye on in the coming months.

Giuseppe Cassioloi 1pt win only 10/1 (355Sand)

Very consistent for previous yard and didn’t really progress running mainly on the AW. Interesting here for new connections switched to turf on yard debut. Looks bred for this step up in trip on fast ground and if fully tuned up at the first time of asking should go very close from this very workable mark. race looks open to one that is unexposed and that could be this selection if the switch of yards and venue brings about any improvement, and judging on the breeding it absolutely should.

Excellent George 0.5pt EW 35/1 (5places EW Extra B365) (200Yarm)

More than good enough to make his presence felt from this current mark and we take the extra insurance of the 5 places EW extra offered by Bet 365. Goes well on fast ground and can be forgiven his latest disappointment on soft ground. Previously had not been disgraced in a race that ties him in pretty well with todays favourite at the weights. Last win came back in 2018 so is not one that i expect to win but can he beat home half the field here, absolutely and at odds of 35/1 we are in.
