Goodwood Placepot tips on Saturday – Final day selections and perm for the Tote Placepot

Goodwood Placepot tips on Saturday July 31

We enter the fifth and final day of racing at the Glorious Goodwood Festival and a cracking last day racecard awaits punters with one final chance to potentially win big with the Tote Placepot. We’ve picked out our final day Goodwood Placepot tips on Saturday as we bid to add to Wednesday’s share of the pot.

The ever-popular Tote Placepot bet offers punters the chance to potentially win big for a relatively small outlay where the bet’s beauty lies in not even having to back a winner in order to collect a share of the pot.

Covering the first six races of the meeting punters only need to have their selection(s) make the frame according to the number of runners and the race conditions. For a more detailed explanation of how the Tote Placepot works see this page and check below for our Goodwood placepot tips on Saturday ’s final day.


1:20 Goodwood – Thames Materials Handicap Cl2 (3yo 0-105) 7f

4 JUST FRANK – Developed into a useful juvenile and while earlier runs this term didn’t set the heather alight he ran much better in his last couple of runs with a pair of placed efforts. First-time cheekpieces can eke out more improvement and he remains capable of better so could make his presence felt here.

5 RUN TO FREEDOM – All-weather winner last December and stepped up on that effort on return upped in grade to finish runner-up at Sandown in June, not beaten far. Didn’t show his best latest having missed the start but could be capable of better if breaking on terms this time around and he can go well with that latest Sandown form looking solid.

1:55 Goodwood – Unibet Stewards’ Sprint Handicap (Consolation Race For The Stewards’ Cup) Cl2 (3yo+) 6f

6 BICKERSTAFFE – Lightly-raced dual-winner this term who has scored victories at Pontefract and Ascot latest, bouncing back from a couple of lesser efforts in between. Has a 6lbs penalty to carry for that win but ought to get the strong pace he needs once more in this competitive contest and every chance he can be competitive again.

17 TREACHEROUS – Not seen to best effect last time out but had run well for second the time before and a return to this venue could spark a revival having won twice over course and distance last campaign including this race from just 3lbs lower mark. Not discounted back here if reproducing that Doncaster performance from two starts ago.

23 MUSIC SOCIETY – Has built up a good profile this term, running consistently and a Pontefract success in June has been backed up by a trio of runner-up finishes where he’s been beaten a half-length or less each time. Only denied a short-head at York latest in the Sky Bet Dash and 4lbs lower here so claims are obvious if the low draw doesn’t prove a negative.

2:30 Goodwood – Summer Handicap Cl2 (3yo+) 1m6f

2 WIN O’CLOCK – Five-time winner last term on a range of underfoot conditions and posted his best effort of the season when finishing third to Alounak in the Old Newton Cup earlier in the month, beaten three lengths. Only 1lb higher here and a repeat of that Haydock run ought to put him in the mix.

8 FUTURE INVESTMENT – Has won three time, the latest coming at Chester last summer but he’s been lightly raced since and posted a very good second when last seen at Ascot over this trip three weeks ago where he finished with running left and just failing to overhaul the winner. Only 2lbs higher here and the stronger pace is likely to suit so every chance of a big performance here.

3:05 Goodwood – Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes (Group 2) (Fillies & Mares) Cl1 (3yo+) 1m6f

1 WONDERFUL TONIGHT – Dual-Group One winner last term which included at Ascot and wasted little time making it a hat-trick of wins when returning to that track to run out an easy winner of the Ribblesdale Stakes, beating Broome and others. That form is very strong and given it was her first run of the season she can take a big step forward here with that under her belt while any further easing of the ground will only help her case for another win.

3:40 Goodwood – Unibet Stewards’ Cup (Heritage Handicap) Cl2 (3yo+) 6f

9 COMMANCHE FALLS – Alternating wins with placed efforts but building up a very solid profile as a sprinter and took his tally for the season to three when winning the Scottish Stewards’ Cup earlier this month. Carries a penalty for that success but has plenty going for him and ought to be involved.

13 HURRICANE IVOR – Very useful performer in France who has continued improvement for this yard, dead-heating for a win at Sandown in July before being denied only by a short-head at this level at Ascot earlier in the month where he raced on the unfavoured far side. Carries a penalty here but 3lbs well-in at the weights and a big run wouldn’t come as a surprise.

17 BIELSA – Has enjoyed something of a resurgence this term, twice finishing runner-up including behind Commanche Falls on his reappearance in April. Beaten just a nose at Haydock in May he didn’t stay seven furlongs last time and back at this trip is dangerous to discount for all he might just need to find a shade more.

4:10 Goodwood – British European Breeders Fund EBF Maiden Stakes (GBB Race) (IRE Incentive Race) (Colts & Geldings) Cl2 (2yo) 7f

12 RING OF BEARA – Unraced son of Wootton Bassett who fetched 200,000 guineas as a yearling and joined a yard that does quite well with their juveniles. Related to some decent types and likely to be well prepared for this debut so could hold decent claims.

15 TARTAN CHIEF – Has run well on both starts thus far, making the frame both times with a Salisbury runner-up effort being his latest result three weeks ago. He’s a well bred sort who could have more to offer and form of that Salisbury run has been franked so with improvement shouldn’t be far away and he can make his experience tell.
