13:20 Goodwood – Spirit Of Bermuda

ITV coverage Saturday gets under way with this handicap over 7 furlongs. It’s been a tough week to find winners, but let’s get ready to bounce back. SPIRIT OF BERMUDA is nudging up the handicap for William Haggas and Tom Marquand, but might be able to have another dance before he’s too high. The recent Leicester and Newmarket winner is on the improve.

13:55 Goodwood – Open Wide

Now the Stewards’ Cup Sprint Handicap consolation over 6 furlongs. You take a huge chance with a horse like OPEN WIDE as he doesn’t find winning easy. That said, he’s now a very well handicapped horse and I reckon Saffie Osborne will suit him.

He’s got loads of form in these types of events for Amanda Perrett and basically it just depends on whether he’s in the mood. If he is, he’s a big price and I’ll have a few quid on each-way.

14:10 Newmarket – Cashew

ITV also show two races from Newmarket, including this nursery handicap over 6 furlongs. It’s a very tough race to call, but I’ll have a go with CASHEW for George Boughey and the excellent James Doyle. The filly might have found 7 furlongs a bit far last time, but she looked useful with a bit of juice at Haydock the time before.

14:30 Goodwood – Urban Artist

Another handicap here over 1m 6f. It’s not going to be easy for URBAN ARTIST under 9st 5lbs, but I have a feeling the classy mare might run well here for Hughie Morrison and Oisin Murphy. The champion was on board when she last won a decent handicap at Newmarket and, off 99, she is another with each-way claims.

Goodwood Race Course

14:45 Newmarket – Yesyes

Now the Listed Chalice Stakes for fillies and mares over 1m 4f. YESYES is the interesting one here for Ralph Beckett and Rob Hornby. The daughter of Camelot is unbeaten in two runs at Haydock and Lingfield, and looks like a progressive young stayer. She has a bit to find, but not so much it’s impossible.

15:05 Goodwood – Albaflora

Group 2 company with the Lillie Langtry for fillies and mares over 1m 6f. Wonderful Tonight should win, but I believe ALBAFLORA is a cracking each-way bet for Ralph Beckett and Rossa Ryan. The Coronation Cup fourth is a pretty decent filly who stays well, and she looked really good three runs ago at Ascot in the mud.

15:40 Goodwood – Chiefofchiefs

The Stewards’ Cup Handicap itself over 6 furlongs. It’s hard to know whether CHIEFOFCHIEFS will like Goodwood as all his best form is at Ascot. That said, he’s shown in his last few runs that he’s perfectly capable of winning off 99, including when fourth last time in the Wokingham Stakes. He’s sure to be staying on well under Jamie Spencer to hopefully get a place at the very least.

So best of luck and pray for Yeeehaaas. You hear me Paddy?
