BATCHELOR BOY (1.50 Goodwood, 6f handicap)
Three starts over the minimum trip this season and has been noted staying on strongly in the manner of a horse who looks set to improve upped top this 6f trip.
Still entitled to improve after just six career runs and represents trainer Marco Botti who is experiencing a resurgence this season.
Ryan Moore booked for the ride, which suggests there is confidence around Batchelor Boy’s chances and he can get us off to a good start today.
INDIANAPOLIS (2.25 Goodwood, 1m6f handicap)
A competitive handicap can go the way of Indianapolis, who has the potential to progress on his first start at this trip.
Caught the eye when staying on strongly at Ripon last time over a couple of furlongs shorter and this a good race to take in next.
Silvestre de Sousa is a positive jockey booking and it’s interesting that De Sousa has chosen Indianapolis over three Mark Johnston-trained horses as De Sousa has ridden multiple times for Johnston at Goodwood this week.
WATAN (3.35 Goodwood, 6f handicap)
Classy enough to finish just a few lengths behind Too Darn Hot in the Group 1 Prix Jean Trat at Deauville over 7f last year but clearly difficult to train, making just one appearance since.
Still open to improvement over this trip and travelled like the best horse in the race on his return to the racecourse a couple of weeks ago before finishing runner-up to favourite Nahaarr.
May have just lacked for fitness on that occasion but with improvement expected for that return he could go well under Ryan Moore.
CORVAIR (4.10 Goodwood, 7f handicap)
Put in a remarkable run last time to finish fourth after missing the break by around ten lengths. That a worry and it must be hoped that he doesn’t develop a habit of starting slowly, while he’s also been gelded since that run, which could also help his attitude.
He’d looked hugely progressive at the start of the year with three all-weather wins and we can forgive the last couple of runs.
Trainer Simon Crisford is operating at a 38 per cent strike-rate in the last fortnight so his string is in good form.
