Jason Weaver: I’m sweet on Frankie & Mojito in Friday’s Mile

The heady cocktail of Frankie Dettori & Mojito has gone to Jason's head on a fun Friday at Goodwood.

Goodwood 13:50 Jubiloso @ 6/4

As a half-sister to the mighty Frankel, she’s always going to attract a massive amount of attention in the market. She definitely put up her best performance to date in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot when finishing a creditable third behind Watch Me and Hermosa. That form is standout.

Goodwood 14:25 King Ottokar @ 10/1 

Looked to be a major Derby contender after his winning return run at Newbury this season but things didn’t quite go to plan when stepped up in distance at Chester. He reverted down to 10 furlongs at Royal Ascot and finished third to Sangarius and Fox Chairman. The drop in distance to a mile on Friday could prove the ticket as he certainly still has a massive upside still to his profile.

Goodwood 15:00 Mojito @ 4/1

He’s going to have Paddy running for cover as the Dettori bandwagon roles on and on this season! William Haggas’ runner gets in here with a tiny 3lb penalty after destroying a good field at Sandown, and is ‘well in’ from a handicapping perspective. He’s got a a favourable draw in stall 9 and could turn into the punt of the week in a race where Paddy’s paying the first 5 home.

Goodwood 15:35 Battaash @ 1/3 & Judicial e/w @ 20/1

He should win on his favourite playground as the nature of this track is all about raw speed – but at 1/3 he’s not a betting proposition. Something lurking in here has to run a place at a big price – a horse with a fairly good profile in top-level sprints is Judicial.

He doesn’t win very often as he tends to find trouble and only gets get going when the race is effectively. However, he can hit the board at a massive 20/1.
