The feature race of the afternoon is the Group One Goodwood Cup over two miles and we are giving another chance to Coltrane who we hope can reverse the form from Royal Ascot with Courage Mon Ami.
He took his form to a new level last term when finishing a good second in the Chester Vase in May last term and off the back of that came into the Ascot Stakes at Royal Ascot last year and went on to take the event from the well handicapped Bring On The Night off a mark of 98.
He built on that to make it back to back wins in the Listed Coral Marathon at Sandown and then ran another cracker to finish just over four lengths back in fourth in the Group One Goodwood Cup behind Kyprios, Stradivarius and Trueshan.
Seen three more times before the end of the season he was second at York behind the runaway winner Quickthorn in the Group Two Lonsdale Cup and then got back to winning ways in the Group Two Doncaster Stakes, seeing off the smart stayer Trueshan.
Finishing the season off at Ascot in the Group Two Long Distance Cup he was just pipped by the three time winner of the race Trueshan.
Back this season starting at Ascot over two miles in the Group Three Sagaro Stakes he looked better than ever when pulling away from a good field to bolt up.
He was last seen at Royal Ascot in the Group One Gold Cup and in a humdinger of a race he was seen off late on by the younger less exposed Courage Mon Ami.Dropping back to two miles we feel that Coltrane can reverse the form.
