It’s all eyes on the Nassau Stakes on Thursday at Goodwood as the Group 1 contest is the main event of the seven-race card down in south east England. It’s been a bit wet and wild but Thursday could offer the best weather on show for the remainder of the Festival.
Our panel of Matt Chapman, Mick Fitzgerald, Jason Weaver, Timeform and Paddy himself are here to bring some sunshine to proceedings with their best bets for each and every race on our day 3 Cheat Sheet for Glorious Goodwood. They’ve been on form this week and will be here for the week. Good times!
The Nassau Stakes is the feature race on Thursday and the favourite, Audarya only gets one vote and that comes from the boffins at Timeform. It’s a 2-2 spit between Lady Bowthorpe and Joan Of Arc between the rest of the panel. Lady Bowthorpe gets the nod from Mick Fitz becuase, “She has solid form on flower ground and that might make the difference.
Matt Chapman is in Joan Of Arc’s corner. “She’s tactically versatile, and the French Oaks heroine can race prominently or lead if she needs to under Ryan Moore,” Mc Yeeehaaa explains.
So, without further ado, here’s the mighty, mighty Cheat Sheet.
Pundits’ most popular picks
We’ve got a lot of tips being shared about on Thursday at Glorious Goodwood but one of the horses with the most backing from our panel is Third Realm in the 15:00 Group 3 Gordon Stakes. Timeform, Paddy and Matt are backing Roger Varian’s charge for glory there.
Elsewhere Patient Dream gets the nod from Timeform, Mick and Matt in the opener, the handicap over 1m2f. Timeform and Matt think the soft ground will be to Patient Dream’s advantage.
