Recommended Bets

- Back Red Rannagh each way @ [22.0] in the 14:00 Goodwood
- Back Rhododendron @ [2.2] in the 16:20 Goodwood
- Place Lay Just Glamorous @ [2.84] in the 17:30 Goodwood

For our each way selection we look to the opener the 14:00 Handicap over 1m 1f. Selection Red Rannagh has seen heavy support this morning and is currently trading at [22.0] from and early [60.0]. Something of an unknown quantity at this level, he has had a wind operation since his last run out in January and posted some decent performances out in Ireland last year, including taking a competitive maiden at Dundalk in November. With the money down and still at an each way price we are happy to support.

We remain at Goodwood for our second positive in the 16:20 Maiden over 7f. Selection Rhododendron has seen an avalanche of money come for her and is now into [2.2] from a morning [3.4]. The impeccably bred Filly is entered into two Group 2's and she impressed on debut at the Curragh when finishing second. In what looks on form to be a battle between the two heads of the market the money is all going one way, and we fancy the Aidan O'Brien charge to justify favouritism.

Today's negative comes from the last race at Goodwood the 17:30 Handicap over 5f. Selection Just Glamorous has proven easy to back drifting from [7.2] out to [9.4], and due to his price is advised as a place lay at [2.84]. Despite coming into the race off a hat trick of wins, this is a large step up in class and in such a competitive heat we feel at least four will prove too good for him. He performs best as a front runner and if he fails to break very sharply there is a long list of decent competitors ready to take advantage, with Lathom in particular coming in for eye catching support.
