Qatar Goodwood Festival Day 1

Mark Johnstones name is synonymous with this race in recent years and he returns with a strong hand, looking for his 5th victory in the last 11 runnings of this event. He saddles STAR OVER THE SEAS, WATERSMEET, FIRE FIGHTING (3rd last year) and REVOLOUTIONIST and jockey bookings would suggest that all have a great chance. SECOND WAVE, OASIS FANTASY and SHAKOPEE are others to note in this wide open event.

There was not a lot separating WAR DECREE and BOYNTON when they last met with the latter coming out on top that day. There is a 3lb difference in the weights this time around which could see a reversal of that form. However the value could lie elsewhere and the name Richard Hannon is as good a place as any to start having won 4 of the last 10 renewals. He saddles REPTON, LARCHMONT LAD and HAKEEM. Jockey bookings would see me ruling out the latter and my money will be going on the S Levey mount who has ridden both of the others. ISOMER would be my other one to not having finished 2nd to Churchill 2 runs back.

Godolphin have a strong hand in this race with 3 of the 8 runners and the colours would suggest that the order of preference is as follows, BIRCHWOOD, DUTCH CONNECTION and HOME OF THE BRAVE but my preference has them in a slightly different order.

WINNER: DUTCH CONNECTION 5/2 (NO BET)

DANGER: HOME OF THE BRAVE 9/4

Mark Johnstone saddles another with a chance here in the form of NOTARISED and the fav KING BOLETTE from the Varian yard must hold excellent claims too. But my attention has been grabbed by the 3 C Appleby trained Godolphin runners. QEWY, FRANCIS OF ASSISI and A SOLDIERS LIFE. The latter is the chosen mound of J Doyle which sways my vote for this race.

WINNER: 20160726gwo154509A SOLDIERS LIFE 1PT WIN 9/1 

DANGER: KING BOLETTE 11/2

A wide open race in which a case could be made for many. What i’ve looked for is one that could possibly be below his mark and that brings me to these 4 THESME, SHORE STEPS, CONFESSIONAL and BROTHER TIGER. E Alston who won this race last year also runs two in BLITHE SPIRIT AND RED BARON.

Not a race that i have spared much attention for with little form on offer. We have a short priced fav in HARRY ANGEL but my money will lay with one of the Hannon duo TESKO FELLA or SWAG who offer better value considering the trainers record here.

WINNER: 20160726gwo165512TESKO FELLA 0.5PT EW 16/1

M Channon’s GRATZIE finds herself back in more suitable company and could go much closer than her 11 length beating at th hands of Convey. PURE ART, SHWAIMSA and HAGGLE must also hold real chances too. L Cumani enjoys a good time of it here and i am sure he will have his charge fired up for this one.

WINNER: 20160726gwo173004HAGGLE 1PT WIN 6/1

DANGER: GRATZIE 22/1

A Desperatley unlucky day with the NAP just missing out in  a photo and NB fairing only slightly worse finishing a 1/2 length 2nd. A change in fortune is required and we are hoping that comes in the form of today’s 2 from the tracker.

ASCOT

500 20160723asc170006.pngSECRET GLANCE 1PT 12/1  (NB)

All the way winner at Chepstow in impressive style 2 runs back before posting a solid effort at Newmarket last time out. Wasn’t seen to his best on that day with a little too much cut under foot and was withdrawn from his next entry for similar reasons. Conditions to suit today and should give a good account once more.

YORK

300 20160723yor150007CALDER PRINCE 1PT 12/1 (NAP)

Was given far too much to do last time out on a difficult course to recover, was finishing well that day and stayed on for 4th when given no chance. A similar race today and our only worry is the ground may be a little on the quick side, but way overpriced in our opinion.
