Nick Shiambouros is back with a couple of selections and a short priced lay from the Sunday card at Goodwood...
"The extra yardage should suit, and there is enough in the pedigree to suggest he will handle the testing conditions"
Back Lincoln Gamble at 8.07/1 in the 14:30 at Goodwood
Lincoln to land the spoils
14:30 Goodwood - Lincoln Gamble
I am going to side with Lincoln Gamble in this novice stakes.
This colt was not disgraced on debut when finishing forth to Modular Magic at Redcar last month. He missed the break, but put in some solid work in the closing stages and finished the race with good energy. The extra yardage should suit, and there is enough in the pedigree to suggest he will handle the testing conditions. At present he is trading at 8.07/1.
Qasbaz is the favourite at 2.8615/8. He was firmly put in his place when finishing second to Desert Safari at Kempton last month, and needs to improve further to take this. I am going to go ahead and lay him, as his price is way too short on what he has achieved.
Tantivy to take charge
16:15 Goodwood - Tantivy
Tantivy should prove difficult to beat in this interesting race.
This colt put in a much improved effort when finishing second to Khalifa Sat over this course last month. He was collared a furlong from home, but kept on well to hold on to the runner-up spot. The ground was pretty soft and he handled it well. I think he is open to further improvement, and is reasonably priced at 2.68/5 on the exchange.
Damage Control is the main threat to the selection. He kept on well when finishing second to King Carney at Nottingham, and should handle the ground. He is currently trading at 2.77/4.
