REST OF GOODWOOD CARD. ROGER CHARLTON BENEFIT, HOPEFULLY.
Goodwood 2 55. PHTHAGOREAN has a complete bastard of a gate position hung out in the car park in stall 18. Can this quirky but ultra talented Roger Charlton inmate possibly get up late and win ? I say the 9/1 that Hills and Bet 365 are offering is value enough for us to try. I have no doubt he is the best horse in the race so let’s hope for a bit of luck. 1 pt win at 9/1.
Goodwood 3 30. AFSARE stands out. I hope the ground continues to dry as ideally he needs fast conditions but he just might get away with it as this a very sub standard renewal of the Celebration Group 2 race.I have him miles clear on the clock and 9/4 generally is some price. I am also advising an interest on STIPULATE in the betting w/o market with PP. So a 2 pts win AFSARE at 9/4 PP and a 1 pt on STIPULATE at 6/1 w/o the former with PP at 6/1.
Goodwood 4 40. CAMBORNE can be a bit of a monkey and has to try and overturn a huge beating that he got from the re-opposing hot favourite Harris Tweed over course and distance the last day but he just might do it. I think he needed it there and at 5/1 is worth a punt. 1 pt win with PP at that price.
Goodwood 5 15, Roger Charlton is launching a big charge today and could have a very good day and I hope TRADER JACK can finally get some luck as he deserves it. He has run some great races without winning and his mark has suffered but this intermediate and unusual trip of nine furlongs might just be the answer. I love his chance so 1 pt win at 9/2 with Corals.
Goodwood 5 50, It will be interesting if Charlton allows MAGOG take his chance. This is a lovely horse but has only run twice and he has a massive pounding action so we must await the trainer’s decision. I cannot believe he will risk him if he doesn’t feel it is safe. MAGOG has a big class edge if he goes to post and will relish the extra yardage. 2 pts with PP at 9/4.
Best of luck……..
