It’s the final day for this year’s Glorious Goodwood tips and we’re hoping to bash the bookies with seven Saturday selections on the Sussex downs.
The Stewards’ Cup is the betting highlight of the fifth afternoon, backed up by other wide-open handicaps and some high-class contests for punters to get stuck into.
1.50 TOMMY G
Rewaayat will be all the rage following his recent wide-margin win at Salisbury but we prefer Scottish raider Tommy G from stall one.
The value of his Ayr second to Prompting was franked when that winner followed up in fine style at this festival and Jim Goldie’s charge has a great record in this race.
His form figures over three past renewals read 2-1-3 and Silvestre De Sousa again takes the mount for a third straight year.
2.25 KING’S ADVICE
Mark Johnston sends three runners down from north Yorkshire for this 1m 6f handicap and this top-weight is taken to repeat last season’s heroics in this event.
The son of Frankel has another course and distance success to his credit and is an 11-time scorer overall.
It has been a week for old Glorious Goodwood favourites doing the business, including Stradivarius and Battaash, and we’re sticking with that theme again here.
Enbihaar was a touch flat on her return to action at Newmarket but it is hard to forget a five-length thrashing of Manuela De Vega in this Group 2 Lillie Langtry Stakes 12 months ago (pictured below).
That rival has improved from three to four and enjoyed a couple of comfortable strikes at Haydock this term, but must now reoppose our selection on 17lb worse terms.
William Haggas and Tom Marquand teamed up to give us a nice 9/2 pay-out with Pablo Escobar on day four and look worth sticking with in the Stewards’ Cup.
Nahaarr went into many notebooks when third of 19 in the Wokingham consolation race at Royal Ascot and confirmed that promise when scoring readily at Newbury.
That was a fifth success in just eight outings and it would be a surprise if there isn’t more progress to come from this four-year-old son of Dark Angel.
4.10 KING RAGNAR
Named after a Viking legend and has shown plenty of courage himself to score at Newcastle and Leicester from only six spins so far, never being out of the first three, so more of that fighting spirit should see him go close once more.
May have paid the price for being too prominent early on when fading back into sixth on his Newmarket debut and the feeling is that this track, plus a sounder surface, will be more suitable.
Cieren Fallon stands out among the jockeys in this apprentice handicap and his front-running mount is overdue a victory after solid seconds at Sandown and York.
