We’re finishing off our 2022 Glorious Goodwood tips with a magnificent seven selections for day five of this year’s Sussex spectacular.
The Group 2 Lillie Langtry Stakes is Saturday’s showpiece event, while the Stewards’ Cup is always one of the biggest betting heats of the year.
This 260,000gns son of Dubawi created a favourable impression on his racecourse bow when staying on nicely under a tender ride to finish a close fourth in what looked a hot Newbury maiden and is rated one to follow.
1.40 NELSON GAY
Lethal Levi has been in great form this term and will be all the rage in the Stewards’ Cup consolation race but we prefer this four-year-old gelding as an each-way alternative.
Nelson Gay caught the eye on Derby day at Epsom and again when fourth at Sandown recently, when Ryan Moore clearly saw enough in him to want another go in the saddle here.
2.10 SOAPY STEVENS
Mark and Charlie Johnston send a team of three down from North Yorkshire for this 1m 6f handicap and stable jockey Franny Norton has opted to side with this in-form stayer.
Soapy Stevens was a smooth scorer at Chester last month and followed up by landing a valuable Newmarket prize, when battling on gamely once finally getting daylight, so he is fancied to complete a hat-trick.
2.45 SEA LA ROSA (nap)
William Haggas would love to have more horses as consistent as this filly, who has secured five wins from 12 outings and only finished outside of the first three on one occasion.
Sea La Rosa kicked off her 2022 campaign with a Group 3 victory at Haydock and was then second in the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks at the same track, each time running as if a step up in distance for the Lillie Langtry Stakes will suit.
Jason Watson enjoyed a nice win when Orbaan flew home like a bullet on day four and will be hoping this fast finisher can come with a similar late surge in the Stewards’ Cup.
Summerghand claimed top honours in this race a couple of years ago, having been fourth 12 months earlier, and the evergreen eight-year-old returns in good spirits after a fine fifth of 26 in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot.
3.55 KOY KOY
Showed promise when with Andrew Balding and got up on the line to score on his debut for George Boughey at Newmarket a fortnight ago. Further improvement is on the cards and the booking of Moore only adds to his appeal.
4.30 GENERAL LEE
Carries the same colours as this week’s Group 2 winners Royal Scotsman and Khaadem and can cap off a great festival for connections if recapturing the sparkle of last August’s impressive course and distance victory.
