2:00pm Goodwood Infiniti Q30 Handicap (Class 3) 7f



Mubhij mad an excellent impression on his handicap debut at Yarmouth last month, powering home to secure a comfortable two-length triumph. Roger Varian’s colt looks worthy of a step up in class, but it’ll be much harder to carry top weight in this sort of company and that career-best display came on much, much faster ground than this.

Ptarmigan Ridge should enjoy the ground and is better than his most recent run at Chester. Beauty Filly has been tried over a variety of trips and could be a danger here, but LINCOLN PARK (NAP) is taking a drop in class to tackle his elders here and he should be very well suited by conditions at Goodwood on Sunday.

Michael Appleby’s colt caught the eye in juvenile handicaps last season, hacking up on heavy ground to beat some decent rivals at Haydock. Following a poor effort in a very competitive handicap on his reappearance, Lincoln Park ran very well over a mile at Ayr to finish fourth and travelled to Chester’s May Festival with obvious winning claims.

Silvestre De Sousa’s front-runner landed a plumb draw in stall two in the Deepbridge Capital Handicap and dictated the race throughout, clinging to the rail down the home straight and comfortably holding his rivals at arm’s length. Lincoln Park is the second-highest rated horse in this race, but his weight-for-age allowance means he will carry bottom-weight. The ground will be in his favour and I doubt a wide draw will stop De Sousa finding ideal position around this tricky, turning track.
