Glorious Goodwood Friday

Rate this Entry
Friday's Picks (All E/W)

1:50 - Strong form lines to analyse. I can never underestimate the form of a filly who has placed in a big showcase handicap against the colts and geldings so therefore Solar Gold's second placing in the Bunbury Cup behind Vale of Kent (Admirality back in third) reads very well. That was her career best effort. The forecast price of 16/1 looks well worth getting stuck into each way.

3:00 History Writer (NAP, Each Way) can finish in the first four. He is a right handed specialist so should like Goodwood, was gelded over the winter, then ran a career best at Sandown when winning by two lengths beating some excellent yardsticks. He's still on a very good mark and may have actually been mapped out for this race for a long time.

4:40 Prince Of Arran (NB) has that all important top-class handicap form which you can't underestimate even when comparing it to the group form of other horses. He returns from a break after finishing a fine third in the Melbourne Cup, so I'll take that form to trump the rest of them. He's another huge price who could run into a place against a very short priced odds-on favourite.
