Alan Thompson is back in the chair today and kicks off his week with two runners from the evening meetings at Goodwood and Hamilton...
"12 runners currently declared and at 8/1, I think she offers some value as an each way selection"
Jamesbos Girl is an interesting runner over six furlongs at Hamilton, she ran over five at Carlisle on Monday and was sent off the 3/1 joint favourite. She is moving up in class today but also up to a trip where four of her six wins have come from, including one at this track.
The current favourite is Rural Celebration who is running off the top weight in the race of 88, she ran well enough in defeat off that mark last time out at Ripon, but that was over five furlongs a distance that three of her four wins have come over and she is 4lbs higher than her highest winning rating. Next best in the betting is As Good As Gold, who ran a cracking race to win comfortably, leading from start to finish over this trip at the beginning of the month at Nottingham. However, she has received a 5lb increase for that win and is stepping up in class today.
Jamesbos Girl has gone close a couple of times this year and while she is inconsistent, with 12 runners currently declared and at 8/1, I think she offers some value as an each way selection.
19:45 Goodwood - Avalanche Express 6.05/1 Exchange
I think Avalanche Express is worth closer inspection in the final race of the day at Goodwood, the lightly raced colt makes his handicap debut against some pretty ordinary seasoned runners.
He is yet to get his head in front but was sent of favourite in his last two starts and could have been unlucky, when finishing second to Akeed Champion over this trip at Redcar in July. Both Akeed Champion and the third that day Khareer have since come out and won.
Avalanche Express is running of a mark of 74 today and with Tom Marquand taking 5lbs off he could be well in at the weights here. In all three of his starts he has traded in running at 50% of his Betfair Starting Price (BSP) so there is an opportunity to recover your stake and leave a free bet in running should you wish to do so.
