Glorious Goodwood Day One Tips
13:50 Goodwood – Khairaat (BEST ODDS 7/1 with Sky Bet) – Money back if you lose
This horse was disappointing last time out in Listed company, but this is a massive step down in class. Before that, Khairaat won twice, which included a win at this very class level. He’s a distance winner and as long as he breaks well he should go very close.
14:25 Goodwood – Cold Stare (BEST ODDS 15/1 with Bet Victor)
I’m surprised that this horse is such a big price to win this race. He’s won two races in Listed company over in France, which is some of the best form on offer in the race. This isn’t as big a step up in class for Cold Stare as it is for many of the others.
15:00 Goodwood – Limato (BEST ODDS 3/1 with Sporting Bet)
I really like the look of Limato in this one. He ran very well to come second to Harry Angel last time out and as that was in Group One company, this represents a step down in class. He’s also well in since he’s two pounds down the weights after that run.
15:35 Goodwood – Stradivarius (BEST ODDS 12/1 with Paddy Power)
I’m happy to take on the favourite here because I don’t think he should be odds-on. This horse has a very strong duo of Gosden and Atzeni in his corner. He has also won three of his last four races and the lack of forecast rain will help his chances massively.
16:10 Goodwood – Algam (BEST ODDS 7/1 with Bet Victor)
I like the look of Algam here. There isn’t much form to go on because it’s a maiden race, but he scored a very good second at Epsom in his only race so far. The fact that Frankie Dettori is booked to ride him is a massive plus.
16:45 Goodwood – Line Of Reason (BEST ODDS 15/1 with Bet Victor)
I fancy Line Of Reason at a bigger price here. He wasn’t disgraced in a Group Three race last time out and this is a big step down in class. He’s proven at the trip and as long as it doesn’t rain he should be okay with the ground.
17:15 Goodwood – Pretty Asset (BEST ODDS 4/1 with Bet Victor)
Pretty Asset looks the most solid bet in the field here. She won her only race so far at Newmarket by a couple of length over this trip. She has William Buick booked on board and should be there or thereabouts.
