GLORIOUS GOODWOOD PLACEPOT TIPS ON DAY ONE
1:50 Goodwood – Unibet “You’re On” Chesterfield Cup Handicap Cl2 (4yo+) 1m2f
2 MAJESTIC DAWN – Heavy ground winner at Nottingham in October 2019 and has been lightly raced since with just four more starts to his name.
He’s made the frame in three of those four outings, winning at Newmarket in September and finishing third at Windsor on his return from nine months off. Sure to be sharper for that and proven in the ground it isn’t hard to see him going well here.
4 MAYDANNY – Won this twelve months ago but struggled subsequenty although he’s run well in two of three starts this term, most recently finding only one too good at Sandown in a hot race where he was beaten less than one length.
Represents a yard with a good record in this and should give a good account despite a much higher mark than last year.
11 CARADOC – Three-time winner in 2019 and while winless since he has run a number of good races in defeat, shaping well back from nine months off at Haydock latest behind Thibaan.
He should strip fitter for that outing and he remains on a fair mark so a big run wouldn’t be a surprise assuming he handles this much more testing ground as he’s yet to race on ground this soft.
2:25 Goodwood – Unibet Vintage Stakes (Group 2) Cl1 (2yo) 7f
2 LUSAIL – Won three of his four career starts to date which includes the July Stakes at Newmarket latest and surely has more improvement to come over this trip having won over the distance in June at the same venue.
Also a debut winner he met with defeat on his last encounter with soft ground at Pontefract, but he’s an improving sort who ought to give another good account.
5 – ELDRICKJONES – Not beaten far in either of his first two starts, running a screamer in the Coventry Stakes behind Berkshire Shadow where he raced on the wrong side of the track and met with trouble in running yet only finished just over one length adrift of the winner.
Wasn’t seen to best effect at Newmarket latest behind Lusail but can do better over this longer trip and breeding suggests he’ll cope with conditions so no surprise to see a big performance here in receipt of 3lbs.
3:00 Goodwood – Unibet Lennox Stakes (Group 2) Cl1 (3yo+) 7f
10 SPACE BLUES – Course and distance winner who was 4-4 last term which included this race and a French Group One and following almost 200 days off added another win to his resume at Riyadh although he ran poorly in the Al Quoz Sprint when last seen.
The Godolphin runner is back over seven furlongs here and he’s proven when fresh so a big run could be on the cards assuming he handles this deep ground.
12 CREATIVE FORCE – Winner of his first four starts this term which include in soft ground at Ascot in the Jersey Stakes before posting a very good fifth in the July Cup where he travelled strongly but was just unable to find a change of gear on the quicker ground.
He could do better back over seven furlongs given his impressive Ascot win and the progressive Godolphin runner has proven he handles these conditions so rates a major player to get back on the scoresheet.
3:35 Goodwood – Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup Stakes (Group 1) (British Champions Series) Cl1 (3yo+) 2m
8 SIR RON PRIESTLEY – Tough and genuine and largely consistent operator who bounced back from a rare below par run to win at Newmarket latest in the Tattersalls Stakes from Al Aasy, digging deep.
This is his toughest test to date trying a new trip and he’s not certain to be suited by this ground; however he’s 2-3 at this venue and likely to still be progressive and he can get involved if handling the conditions better than he did at Ascot.
11 TRUESHAN – Went from strength to strength as a stayer last term, winning three times which includes a defeat of Stradivarius in the Ascot Long Distance Cup.
He shaped well in defeat although likely needed the run in the Ormonde Stakes and ran well under a huge weight in the Northumberland Plate to finish sixth. Ground conditions have come right for him and he ought to be firmly in the mix here.
4:10 Goodwood – Back To Goodwood Handicap Cl2 (4yo+ 0-105) 5f
7 ZARGUN – Hasn’t been seen at his best in his last couple of outings but he has had excuses and earlier runs this term offer plenty of promise that he can do better.
He’s twice finished third earlier in the campaign at York on softer ground behind useful pair Mr Lupton and Pendleton prior to a good fifth in a Listed contest at Haydock. This is a shade easier than recent assignments and with conditions no problem he could run a big race.
11 LORD RIDDIFORD – Course and distance winner but best recent form has come on the all-weather where he was a Listed winner at Lingfield back in September over this trip.
Badly hampered in the Epsom Dash on his return from a break he ran below his best when last seen at the Curragh; a bounce-back is required here but he’s capable of going well although conditions aren’t sure to suit.
4:45 Goodwood – British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes (GBB Race) (Colts & Geldings) Cl2 (2yo) 6f
2 CITY RUNNER – Twice raced and has made the frame on both occasions, latterly chasing home Adjuvant over seven furlongs at Salisbury on softer ground, perhaps just finding himself stretched by the longer trip.
.The form of his debut effort looks solid and the drop back to six furlongs could prove a good move so every chance he can make his presence felt here with the forecast conditions unlikely to be a problem.
8 OLIVETTI – Shaped with some promise on debut at Newbury earlier in the month, green early but getting better as the race unfolded and that experience won’t have been lost on her so she’s capable of improvement.
Half-brother to the yard’s very useful Perotto so likely to have more to offer and she can go well if handling the conditions.
