Today's Racing News: Glorious Goodwood opens the doors for a magnificent day two

Glorious Goodwood day two takes focus on Wednesday

We have a great Wednesday in-store as Goodwood and Galway continue their top-class racing. Daryl Carter is on hand to talk you through and offer invaluable info for the day's racing.

"She is unexposed and looks a good each-way price in a race lacking a stand-out horse."

It's Wednesday, and while Goodwood and Galway continue their festival meetings, there is action from Redcar, Perth, Leicester and Sandown with something for everyone.

Finish at Goodwood 1280x720.jpg

At Goodwood, the opening 13:50 Handicap has benefited the Mark Johnston foundation for quite some time with the training winning the race four times in the last ten years and saddles four runners. Chase The Dollar, Annandale, Kings Prince and Glen Again.

It was highlighted in this column last month that those who win Sandown's Coral Dragon Stakes have an excellent record when coming into today's 15:00 Molecomb - Fearby.

No favourite has won the 16:45 at Goodwood, and trainer Richard Hannon was denied a third successive win in last years race when forced into second with Magical Wish, who he saddles again.


Sandown's 18:55 Novice Stakes is well worth keeping on side given the last two years have produced 95 plus rated horses, including the 110 rated Art Du Val for Charlie Appleby and William Buick, who combined with New Mission today.

Jockey Brian Hughes will look for a fourth consecutive win in the 14:35 at Perth onboard For Three.

Blues to bounce back!

It may pay to take a flyer on Bounce The Blues, who had very little excuse for her defeat last time at Windsor but a three-length defeat to Century Dream is no bad thing in this company.

The drop back to 7f for the four-year-old looks a good move given she lacks a finishing kick over 1m and the return to the soft ground for which her form figures read one and two (should have won the latest but for denied run) could be a big positive.

This track will almost certainly suit her, and a draw in stall ten shouldn't prove too troublesome.

She is unexposed and looks a good each-way price in a race lacking a stand-out horse.

Timeform hoping Annie is the answer at Galway

Race of the day

The 15:35 Qatar Sussex Stakes looks a belter of a race and a tricky one to solve, so hopefully, I can shed a little light on a few of the runners.

Poetic Flare has exuded brilliance at times this season and arrives off the back of a spectacular performance in the Group 1 St James' Palace Stakes when demolishing his rivals by four widening lengths.

The ground would have to be a question mark with his three defeats all having come on soft ground and whether he is quite as trustworthy as his record of five of eight suggests is up for debate.

He is entitled to improve again, though, and although he faces a different dynamic here, the track should suit him well.

Snow Lantern was impressive when scoring in the Falmouth Stakes for this column last time out despite having to wait for a clear run amongst horses.

She is improving with each start but now must take on a much more competitive scenario against the boys.

Despite the track probably not likely to play to her strengths, she will carry my cash, given the deep ground will turn this into the test she wants.

Tilsit is the least exposed of the older horses and does boast a course win to his name here at Goodwood.

However, we do need to see more, with many in here open to improvement.

Final Word

It looks as though the rain will stay away for today's punting.

It can be infuriating with the ground changing, leaving us punters with more unknowns than we would like but best to focus on the best horse in the race and worry about excuses after.

For all, it could be another one in the bank down the line so try not to get too worked up with the weather this week.

Don't forget tomorrow evening, I will have a tipping column for the brand new Racing League so keep your eyes out for that.

Until tomorrow, be lucky.
