The going at Goodwood is Soft and there are again plenty of non-runners. I have provisionally looked at two races.
I will be getting a full going report later this morning from a senior contact at the course. The ground will unfortunately remain the dominant factor.
2.25 1m Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes (Group 3) (Class 1) (3yo)
Beat The Bank impressed on his latest start when winning a Listed race at Newmarket.
Has a solid chance of adding this Group 3 to his CV.
Again not proven on soft, although his action suggests it shouldn’t be an issue. 3/1 fav my provisional tissue which is in line with the books.
3.00 1m Betfred Mile Handicap (Class 2) (3yo+)
Four have come out, leaving eighteen to contest the £93,000 first prize.
Draw, ground and luck in-running will all play a significant part in the outcome of this highly competitive race.
Gm Hopkins continues to perform at a high level and if his jockey can manoeuvre a clear passage from stall 1 he is expected to go close.
