4:20 Goodwood - Open Wide 7/1 (25th May)

Goodwood Racing - May 2018
GOODWOOD 4.20
OPEN WIDE 93 RAUCOUS 89 (4/1 1st) GEORGE BOWEN 87
Its fairly tight at the top of my ratings, the early paced types here will be setting the race up for the finishers, George Bowen has done its best times on a flatter course than this and I don't think its as good on an undulating track like Goodwood, Raucous needs the going to be fast to show its best but the jockey booking looks a negative as the record is 0-14 on this stables older horses which leaves OPEN WIDE 7/1 as the selection, this one usually likes to track the leaders so should be in a prime position to get the first move to pass the leaders plus it did record its best time this year.

Open Wide 9/1 6th

BATH 5.05
SILVERRICA 104 (20/1 1st) EDGED OUT 103? UNION ROSE 101
A very nice looking race with half the field liking to lead or press for the lead, the bottom pair both recorded their best times in the same race at Salisbury last year and its starting to look like a bit of a fluke time and if that is true it leaves UNION ROSE 10/1 in top spot and that will be my bet in this race.

Union Rose 10/1 7th
PONTEFRACT 8.00
BOSHAM 93 FOXTROT KNIGHT 89 HENLEY 88 (8/1 1st)
Another tight looking race at the top of my figures, I've got 4 at the bottom of my figures I will be quite willing to lay in there of any value, Henley’s trainer has a 7% strike-rate here which isn't great but the jockey is 0-31 which looks a negative, Foxtrot Knight’s trainer has a 10% win rate here but the apprentice jockey is 0-10 for this stable, my top rated BOSHAM 6/1 doesn't have great stats but none are negatives so I'm hoping this front running type can lead all the way here.

Bosham 14/1 7th
