16:30 Goodwood – Bless Him (BEST ODDS 13/2 with Betfair)
I’m all for taking on the favourite Dutch Connection here. He has won two Group 2 races before, but he hasn’t won since July last year. He’s also two years older than Bless him, who definitely has the potential to mix it with these rivals in my eyes. The favourite hasn’t finished better than sixth in four attempts. Bless him, on the other hand, won the Britannia at Royal Ascot last time out. He’s got a cracking pedigree behind him and I think that stepping down in trip will help here too. If he can get off to a good start like he did at Ascot, it’ll take a very good horse to stop him.
