01/08/2017 – Qatar Lennox Stakes – 15:00 Goodwood

Our Selection: Limato 4/1

Recent Form Figures: 23

Last years Darley July Cup and Qatar Prix De La Foret winner has had an indifferent season so far this year not managing a win in three races. However, a thoroughly impressive run in this years Darley July Stakes with usual jockey Harry Bentley back board where the pair finished 2nd behind the impressive Harry Angel and even more remarkably over half a length in front of the then unbeaten Caravaggio, the Henry Candy colt gelding has firmly put his hooves up for a shot at the Lennox Stakes. With clear skies and decent temperatures forecasted for the next couple of days at Goodwood it looks like the ground will quicken up and play right into the hands of Limato and we believe he could be an absolute steal at 4/1 with Bet365.


02/08/2017 -Bombay Sapphire Molecomb Stakes – 15:00 Goodwood

Our Selection: Happy Like A Fool

Recent Form Figures: 21

Our selection for day two of Glorious Goodwood comes in the shape of Wesley Ward’s 2-y-o filly Happy Like A Fool. After winning with relative ease on debut at Keenland in April, Wesley brought her over to England for the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot where she finished an impressive 2nd behind the aptly named Heartache, despite going off as the odds on favourite. Ward doesn’t bring horses over here for fun, as seen with his most notable success of late in Lady Aurelia who claimed her second Royal Ascot victory this year. Happy Like A Fool could well turn out to be the little gem that Ward has needed to follow up Lady Aurelia’s success on English soil and we’re backing her to put in a solid performance at Goodwood over the 5f stretch. She’s currently best priced 7/4 to claim victory with Bet365.


03/08/2017 – The Lillie Langtry Stakes – 14:25 Goodwood

Our Selection: Melodic Motion

Recent Form Figures: 111

An impressive filly who despite not breaking her maiden as a 2-y-0, has excelled as a three year old and is currently unbeaten this season. In her debut season she finished behind Bay Of Poets, Tansholpan and Big Challenge, with the first two going on to contest in class 1 races. She broke her maiden in her first run of the season at Pontefract in early May and she has kicked on from there winning at Goodwood and then most impressively staying on wonderfully to win by over three lengths at Newmarket at the start of July. Now stepping up to 1m 6f on what is expected to be good ground along with Oisin Murphy steering her for Ralph Beckett, she looks as though she could be the standout horse in what will undoubtedly be a competitive field. She’s currently best priced 9/2 with Paddy Power.


03/08/2017 – Qatar Nassau Stakes – 15:35 Goodwood

Our Selection: Winter

Recent Form Figures: 1112

Well, there aren’t many words that we can use to describe this incredible filly. since finishing 2nd to Hydrangea in the Ballylinch Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial Stakes, she has gone on to claim a double English & Irish 1000 Guineas success at Newmarket and Curragh respectively along with victory most recently in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. She has comfortably been the stand out horse out of A P O’Brien’s Ballydoyle stables so far this season since Caravaggio’s defeat and we are expecting her to take her win streak to four this season. This will however be the first time she has been raced over 10f and her biggest threat comes from the Roger Varian trained Nezwaah who won over the distance in the Group 1 Pretty Poly Stakes at The Curragh at the start of July. But if Winter takes well to the extra yardage which she has looked as though doing in her previous races, she will be incredibly tough to beat. You can currently get her best priced 7/4 at Paddy Power.


04/08/2017 – Betfred Glorious Stakes – 13:50 Goodwood

Our Selection: Frontiersman

Recent Form Figures: 2214

A fairly consistent colt who was only denied Group 2 success last time out due to a career best run from the stables second string Hawkbill, Frontiersman will be looking to claim his first Group victory at Goodwood this Friday. The Charlie Appleby trained 4-y-o has had a decent season winning one of his four races with second places coming in the Coronation Cup behind Highland Reel and as previously mentioned Princess Of Wales Stakes where he finished behind stablemate Hawkbill. Appleby has made the decision to continue to run Frontiersman over his preferred distance of 12f and with not much else in the race apart from the Sir Michael Stoute trained Poet’s Word, it looks as though Frontiersman really will be the horse to beat in this race. You can currently get him best priced 9/4 at Bet365.


£31 returns £2064 at Bet365 💰💰💰💰
