Nick Shiambouros hopes to end his current stint in the tipping chair with a couple of winners from Goodwood and Sandown...

"The winning distance was only a neck, but she was value for much more"

Back Aloe Vera in the 16:20 at Goodwood

Aloe just the tonic



16:20 Goodwood - Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera should make her presence felt in this intriguing Listed contest.

This well related filly created a favourable impression on debut when beating Maiden Castle at Chepstow earlier this month. She missed the break, but made relentless progress half a mile from home and got up to score near the finish. The winning distance was only a neck, but she was value for much more. I think this likeable individual is open to significant improvement, and is fairly priced at 4.67/2 on the exchange.

Shambolic heads the market at 2.6613/8 on the exchange. She was no match for the impressive Maqsad at HQ earlier this month, and is the obvious danger.

Regal to stand tall

19:35 Sandown - Regal Reality

Regal Reality should go close in this interesting Group 3 event.

This lightly raced four-year-old finished an excellent third to Beat The Bank in a Group 2 over this course last month. He completely missed the break, but recovered to deliver a short lived challenge a furlong from home before weakening close home. That run should have put him spot on for this assignment, and the extra yardage will suit. At present he is trading at 2.6613/8 on the exchange.

Matterhorn has been on the go since last Autumn. He won the Easter Classic at Lingfield in great style, and was narrowly beaten in the Huxley on soft ground at Chester earlier this month. Vulnerable in my opinion, and looks short enough at 3.211/5 on the exchange.
