Your chance to win £/€10k every day at Goodwood


ITV’s coverage of Glorious Goodwood gets under way here with a handicap over 1m2f. This is wide open. BRILLIANT LIGHT has strong each-way claims for Saeed bin Suroor and Danny Tudhope. The Godolphin runner has big performances at York and Royal Ascot in his last two runs and this is probably his ideal trip. Most importantly he has a great low draw to work from which is so crucial at Glorious Goodwood.



Group 2 company now with the Vintage Stakes for juveniles over 7f. Hard to know what to make of Holloway Boy after his win at Royal Ascot, but my gut feeling is to take him on. I’ll do so with another Godolphin runner, in the Charlie Appleby trained MYSTERIOUS NIGHT. He ran against a good horse in Persian Force at Newmarket last time but that crucially was over six furlongs. He never really got into it, and the effort very much suggested this step up and trip could make all the difference. Has William Buick on top.

15:00 – LUSAIL

Another Group 2 in the Lennox over 7f. LUSAIL is an underestimated horse, and really does deserve to win a race like this. Trained by Richard Hannon, and ridden by Pat Dobbs, Lusail ran a cracker in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, and then went to France for the Prix Jean Pratt where he once again was terrific albeit in defeat behind Tenebrism. It won’t be easy against a horse like Sacred, who is one of my favourites, but Lusail has a lovely draw to work from and really does have a great each-way chance.

15:35 – COLTRANE

Now the feature of the day in the Goodwood Cup over 2m. COLTRANE has plenty to find on official ratings but is improving and worth an each-way bet. The Andrew Balding trained five-year-old was a fantastic second in the Chester Cup, before going on and doing this blog a right turn at big odds at Royal Ascot. Since then he’s been to Sandown, and absolutely hacked up. He’s uncomplicated, and can be ridden anyway, which gives him serious each-way claims against many rivals with questions to answer. Could be a huge win for Rob Hornby.

16:10 – EQUALITY

A handicap over 5f. A hard dash to sort out. That said, EQUALITY ran a huge race at Epsom two runs ago before finishing down the field for this blog at Royal Ascot. That run, though, only tells half the story as he actually performed really well and was just drawn on the wrong side of the track. I suspect he has strong each-way claims here for Charlie Hills and Kieran Shoemark.




A maiden ends the coverage for two-year-olds over 6f. It’s very easy to side with MISCHIEF MAGIC in this big field. Charlie Appleby trained runner has useful course experience at Goodwood after a promising debut at the track, and provided he makes just normal improvement he should be able to go two places better under the excellent William Buick.

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