Who To Follow At Goodwood On Saturday - 28/08/21

Horse To Follow - Mutasaabeq

The feature race of the afternoon is the Group Two Celebration Mile and we are siding with the Charles Hills trained Mutasaabeq, who looks the value in the field.

The son of Invinvcible Spirit was seen once as a juvenile making an impressive debut in October on heavy ground at Newmarket landing a 7f Novice Stakes, seeing off the talented Sevenal and The Attorney.

This season the three year old has been seen three times, making an emphatic seasonal debut when hammering the expensive Noble Dynasty by six lengths.

However, on his two runs after that he has been below par, finishing a mid-field seventh of 14 in the 2000 Guineas when backed to go close and last time out ran no sort of race in the Group Three Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Given almost a month off he returned in July and got back to winning ways in a small runner Conditions Stakes at Haydock, which would have done his confidence the world of good.

He has been given some more time off and looks set to be in top shape for this event and if being able to kick on from his win last time out, he could be a Group One horse in the making.

Just needs to stay consistent.

Trainer To Follow - Charles Hills

Charles Hills has a huge chance to land some winners at Goodwood on Saturday with plenty of chances up and down the card, with the betting markets seeming to be on board with many of his horses.

In the first race of the afternoon he has the exciting Willoughby Bay who has been twice to date, running credibly on both ocasions and he should go close again.

In the big race of the afternoon he fields Mutasaabeq , who looks the value in the field at 4/1, with him finally getting back to the horse we all thought he could be.

Hills has been in fine form of late running at a strike rate of 24% for the last two weeks which has seen him gain nine winners from his 37 runners.

Jockey To Follow - David Egan

David Egan looks set for a big day at the Sussex track across the weekend with a handful of great rides and for that reason he is the jockey to follow.

In the seven furlong handicap he sits on the exciting Aratus who has won his last three events, including two emphatically this term and having only gone up 4lb it should not be enough to stop him.

However, Egan's best chance of the day comes on board Nagano for Roger Varian, with the gelding moving up into Group Three company after winning a handicap at Glorious Goodwood last time out.

Egan has been riding well of late with plenty of win and place efforts and he should up that tally on Saturday.
