Goodwood Trixie (Plus Previews And Reviews)

Quick review on the Saturday blog. 

First off I was out all day Saturday getting dragged around the shops. It would have been great to watch the racing all day but these things have to be done. Anyway, I finally caught up with the racing on Saturday night and first off let me just say wow, what a machine Enable is. After an almighty battle to the line with the gutsy Crystal Ocean she claimed her second King George win and confirm she is one of the best middle-distance runners of our time. 

Not quite the King George but the Newcastle 14.10 was just as exciting for my Trixie selection Morisco. Settled in the rear by the impressive Jane Elliott, Morisco was still running green despite already running once before but soon picked up and came with a strong run at the furlong pole and won by just over a length. I was really impressed by Jane Elliott as Morisco looked a difficult ride for most of the race. A few more winners from the trackers with Abstemious and Ethic both winning at short odds. The Saturday Trixie also came up trumps with my winner and a couple of places from Sam and Aarons selections. I had a small each-way treble so more profit on the day. Even though the Trixie has been disappointing I will keep putting them up and may even put a few up for the Galway and Goodwood festivals this week but be warned they come with a warning that you could lose money if you follow them haha. Tracker Queen’s Order made a pleasing debut at Pontefract on Sunday and should be winning soon enough. 

The Goodwood Trixie: 

All to play for the title of the Shit, I mean top tipster for July. 

16:10 Goodwood 30 Jul 2019 Craig: Eleven declared to run in the European Breeders Fund EBF Maiden Stakes. I will mention just a few. Cheat from the Richard Hannon yard that won this last year with Watan. A £75,000 purchase who finished ninth on his debut at Doncaster. Looks to be the stables second string but was entered for a Class 2 race at Ascot but didn't run. COBRA EYE my selection(15/8) is trained by John Quinn and was purchased by Phoenix Thoroughbred Limited for 150,000 euros in August last year. The Kodiac colt made his debut in what looked like a nice Novice Stakes race at Haydock this month. Cobra Eye looked professional that day and stayed on without threatening the winner Treble Treble. Has a Gimcrack Group 2 Stakes entry. Good Job Power also ran in the same race and even though he finished ninth it was a pleasing debut from the Richard Hannon colt. Fuwayrit is a cheap purchase for the Mark Johnston yard and a market check needed on debut. Mark Johnston does have a nice strike rate with his 2-year-olds at Goodwood but not in July. Lost In Time is a homebred colt for S Bin Suroor who was well-beaten on debut by Subjectivist. Lost In Time was very green that day and will need to settle to be involved here. Mr Wilton is a 30,000 euro purchase for Charlie Hills regular owner Mrs Fitri Hay and any strong market move would be a positive for this Raven’s Pass colt. Phuket Power is a 75,000 euro purchase for the King Power Racing team and trained by Tom Dascombe another market check needed for this Kodiac colt. Don’t often see Tom Dascombe 2-year-old runners at Goodwood and his last debut 2-year-old winner here was Kachess back in 2016. Written Broadcast is a 150,000 euro purchase for Richard Hannon and has run two fair efforts to date. So close to getting his first win last timeout when getting beat a short head by Oweny Madden at Newbury. Has the experience and should be in the mix.

Aaron: BERINGER - 1:50 Goodwood: Was a good 3rd in the Lincoln where he found trouble in running and was 2nd over course and distance last August, was only just beaten at Sandown last time out and should go well for trainer Alan King who loves these handicaps (8/1 first 4). 

Sam: 14:25 Goodwood 30 Jul 2019: There were lots to like about PINATUBO’S Chesham win at Royal Ascot not only the way he drew away from one of today’s rivals in Lope Y Fernandez but also the time in the clock! The ground and track shouldn’t be an issue and I fully expect him to follow up. (Bet365 11/8) 

Good luck and thanks for reading.
