5:05 Goodwood Racing Tips (23rd August)

Goodwood racing tips
GOODWOOD 5.05 (7.3) 

This class 5 shows why I'm thinking of ignoring them next year, I quite expect the topweight, Belated Breath 9/4 will be one of the favourites but if it is fast ground it might get found out, but by who I'm not completely sure, mainly due to the lack of early pacesetters, Deer Song 66/1 is my top-rated but its 0-21 on grass but has won at Kempton on the all-weather surface, which shows how bad this race is, Grey Galleon 11/2 and Haylah 9/2 could be thereabouts at the finish, I think the winner will come from the 4 mentioned but my stakes if any won't be on full power and hopefully I can dutch them all for a profit. 

GOODWOOD 6.35 (7.3) 


As you can see its quite close on my speed figures but I've got to mention Roussel, Snazzy Jazz, stall 11 and George Of Hearts stall 4, they are 3-year-olds who could be dangerous especially the latter pair as they like to lead and there's not a lot else on the pace front, Oeil De Tigre may not want really fast ground but is well drawn in stall 2, Baron Bolt will need some luck to get a clear run in the early stages of the race if they all decide to go near the rails, Polybius has been running ok but always just outside the frame so maybe on a downward spiral as a 7 year old, VIBRANT CHORDS 12/1 likes to track the leaders and could get a good tow into the race from the stall 4 front-runner and then stay on the stronger, the trainer has a decent 19% win rate at this course and looks to have found a good opportunity to add to the total, at the price it has to be an each way wager.
