The Goodwood And Galway Trixie (Wednesday)

All selections placed last week and two winners on Tuesday, yes short prices I know but Pinatubo and Cobra Eye (Pictured) both done the buisness for us and hopefully we can get a treble up soon. 

15:00 Goodwood 31 Jul 2019 

Wesley Ward runs MAVEN with the Legend Frankie Dettori on. Two runs and two wins you can't ask more than that. Made 4/9 favourite for his debut at Aqueduct in April, Maven held on to win by under a length. The American Pharoah colt showed his class next timeout when winning the Group 3 race at Chantilly with Group performer Jolie in second place. That looks good form and Maven was entered to run in the Windsor Castle Stakes and the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot but didn't run because of the soft going. A leading player for the American trainer and will be my selection (3/1). Air force Jet runs for Joseph O’Brien. Homebred Charm spirit colt who has run some decent races already this season. Second to Strive For Glory in a Listed race last timeout at Tipperary. Might be a step too far but should run his race. Alligator Alley is another for Joseph. 100,000 gns Kingman colt who was most impressive in his last run at Navan. Will have to improve again to trouble the market principles here. Aussie Showstopper done everything wrong last timeout when finishing sixth to Liberty Beach, could be a lively outsider here. Cool Sphere looks out of his depth here. French challenger Fan Club Rules looks a nice horse but will have to reverse form with Maven to be in with a chance. Raahy another nice colt who has also ran some nice races this season but in my opinion could fall short here. Brocklesby winner Show Me Show Me another who has ran at a decent level and was unlucky to get beat last strides in the Super Sprint the other week. Zulu Zander looks outclassed here. Dr Simpson was impressive at Chester last timeout when winning by seven lengths. Has a few nice entries to be honest and could be anything. Hasn't raced at top-class level so market check needed. I did like Hand On My Hearts debut at Windsor in June. The Clive Cox trained Iffraaj colt was purchased by Hot To Trot racing for 150,000 gns. He beat some experienced rivals that day and looked professional and could get placed. Liberty Beach is, of course, the one to beat with the best form brought to the table including the Listed Dragon Stakes at Sandown last timeout. The short price against some potentially nice horses means I will be looking elsewhere. 

Sam: 2:25 Goodwood - 

DURSTON overcame trouble last time out at Chester to swoop late on to take the prize. He’s 2-2 in handicaps and there is no reason why he shouldn’t compete the hat trick. Jamie Spencer takes the ride and we all know what a master he is at delivering a challenge late on. Bet365 7/1 

Aaron: SO LONELY - 6:10 Galway: she’s won 3 of her last 4 starts just under 2m, could have more progression in her up 6lb and up in class (12/1 first 5 Paddy Power) Good Luck and thanks for reading.
