Goodwood - July 27 2022
Goodwood 13:25
Jim Crowley

Royal Scotsman

J: Jim Crowley
T: Paul & Oliver Cole
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: 107
Days: 44

One of our best bets of the day comes in the Group Two Richmond Stakes over six furlongs and Royal Scotsman for Paul & Oliver Cole looks very tough to beat.

The 125,000gns son of Gleneagles has been seen three times to date, making his debut at Ascot over 5f when a good fourth behind the likes of Noble Style and Walbank.

Over course and distance next time out he got off the mark in impressive style landing a Novice Stakes by five lengths and the second and third have since gone on to frank the form.

Stepping up into the Group Two Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot when last seen and finishing a superb third of 17 behind the likes of Bradsell and Persian Force, he offers some serious form and could be very tough to beat.

Persian Force has since landed a Group Two and the fourth Blackbeard for the same connections has done the same in France.

Big player.

Trainer To Follow - John & Thady Gosden

The Gosden's were very unlucky on the opening day with Stradivarius just getting chinned close home, but on the third day the team will be looking to land some winners.

They start the afternoon in the Nassau Stakes with the 4/5 chance Nashwa who heads into the event after winning the Group One French Oaks.

In the Nursery Handicap Far Shot looks to have a huge chance off the back of his second on handicap debut last time out and only 4lb higher could improve again.

John & Thady Gosden head into the meeting sporting a strike rate of 26% for the last two weeks.

Jockey To Follow - Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore has already managed a big winner this week in the Group One Goodwood Cup and on the third day of the meeting he has a handful of nice rides.

In the opening race of the day he sits on Migdam who heads into the event seeking a four timer and off his mark of 95 could still be under the radar of the handicapper.

Teaming up with Swift Asset and Richard Hannon in the Richmond he could grab a place and then in the Group Three Gordon Stakes Moore sits on Hoo Ya Mal who was last seen finishing second in the Derby.

Having an outside chance on the Aidan O'Brien trained Concert Hall in the Nassau, he then rides True Statesman who seeks a hat-trick and Luckin Brew in the finale who has a big chance.

Moore is currently running at a strike rate of 23% for the last two weeks which has seen him manage eight winners from his last 35 rides.
