Who To Follow On Day Four At Glorious Goodwood

Horse To Follow - Khaloosy

One of the most anticipated races on the Friday is the Group Three Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes over a mile and although only having five runners all of them have a highly progressive profile.

Khaloosy for Roger Varian will have to be at his best in this field taking on impressive last time out winners My Oberon and Tilsit.

However, the manner in how the Hamdan Al Maktoum owned runner landed the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot was eye-catching and he deserves his chance in group company.

He will be sure to improve for that run and looks as if sky is the limit for this three year old off the back of his sectionals at the royal meeting.

Trainer To Follow - David Simcock

David Simcock is a trainer who has found it tough since the resumption of racing in June but he looks to have some decent chances to get back in the winners enclosure on Friday.

Bless him in the Golden Mile Handicap seems to have a really nice chance at double figure odds, as he takes a class drop after two tough assignments this season, and was last successful in this sphere when holding off Lord North, who's form speaks for himself.

Getting back into a big field will help and the booking of the inform Tom Marquand looks a big bonus.

Simcock's other big chance comes in the race he landed last season with Desert Encounter looking for back to back wins in the renewal.

The veteran has past Group One winning form in Canada and although having hit a bad patch of form he got back to near his best when third at Newmarket in a Group Two and improving from that sees him go close again.

Jockey To Follow - Jim Crowley

Jim Crowley has already had a decent Glorious Goodwood, landing the Group One Sussex Stakes on Wednesday and on Friday he can add to his tally with some smart rides.

In the third race of the day he sits on the exciting Khaloosy who looks a proper horse in the making and alongside that he has one of his favourite horses Battaash seeking his fourth straight win in the Group Two King George Qatar Stakes.

He has also managed to pick up the ride on Desert Encounter who landed the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate Glorious Stakes last season and again has a huge chance.
