Timeform on Headingley

Timeform provide the three best bets at Goodwood on Friday.

Canonized - 13:35 Goodwood

Canonized should have learnt plenty from her Newmarket debut, so she is fancied to make her second start a winning one in what should be slightly easier company. Sent off at 10/1 at Newmarket, she was slowly away and took a keen hold before running green when shaken up and came home ninth of the 12 newcomers in a race won by Desert Dreamer. Trained by William Haggas and out of a useful Cheveley Park Stud mare, she's entitled to do better.

Alpinista - 14:45 Goodwood

Alpinista achieved a smart level of form as a three-year-old, winning a listed race at Salisbury before a couple of good seconds behind Love in the Yorkshire Oaks and Antonia de Vega in the Princess Royal Stakes at Newmarket. She shaped better than the bare result when beaten half a length on the latter occasion after conceding first run. Her lightly-raced profile for Sir Mark Prescott, who has given her a Coronation Cup entry, offers the hope for better again in 2021.

Headingley - 15:50 Goodwood

Headingley is a likeable, straightforward type with further progress in the locker for Mark Johnston, so he could be a tough nut to crack under a positive ride on his handicap debut in a contest that looks competitive despite the small field. He built on debut promise when winning unchallenged from the front at Chelmsford last season and landed the odds in similar style in another novice event at Redcar earlier this month.
