Who To Follow On Day Three Of Glorious Goodwood

Horse To Follow - Nazeef

The only Group One of the afternoon is the fillies and mares Qatar Naasau Stakes and the John Gosden trained Nazeef fits the profile for this contest.

The Hamdan Al Maktoum owned four year old is one of the most progressive fillies in training having landed all of her last six races, getting better and better with each run.

Having shown plenty of ability as a youngster it has been this season that she has shown her best form, landing the Group Two Duke Of Cambridge Stakes and from that stepping up to the Group One Falmouth Stakes and beating another good field.

She faces another stiff test going up against the favourite Fancy Blue but if progressing like she has and taking to the extra distance, she should be in the mix.

Trainer To Follow - William Haggas

William Haggas is one of the most inform trainers in British and Irish racing at the moment currently running at a strike rate of 27.87% for the last two weeks with 17 winners across the last 14 days.

Having already had a winner at Goodwood this week, Thursday seems to be his best day with his strongest chances and in the second race of the day he has Al Salt.

The three year old looks to be a huge improver winning both his events nicely this term and beating Tilsit on his seasonal debut, who has since gone on to frank that form.

However, Haggas' big chance of the day and one of our best fancies for the week is Yazaman who is a two year old son of Kodiac that cost 185,000 as a yearling and has shown plenty of ability on all three of of his starts, not finishing outside of the top two.

The colt scored at Yarmouth in taking fashion on debut and then headed to Royal Ascot for the Listed Windsor Stakes and just got beat by Tactical, who again beat him when stepping up to six furlongs at Newmarket in a Group Two event.

On that form alone he is the one to follow in this event.

Jockey To Follow - Hollie Doyle

Hollie Doyle has been a breath of fresh air in the sport over the last few seasons and she is now starting to build her roster of wins at the big festivals.

Having landed a winner at the royal meeting we believe Thursday will be the day she gets her first winner at Glorious Goodwood.

Her best chance looks to be in the first race of the day on board Electric Lady for Archie Watson and the three year old filly enters into the event in the best form of any runner having landed a Class 2 event at Windsor last time out and overall for her three summer runs she has won two of them.

Like many of the horses in this field she has been frequently raced at this trip of five furlongs and also having course and distance form this term makes her a nice price at 5/1.
