Well this week is all about Glorious Goodwood and there a few sprints later on in the week for us to get our teeth into, most notably the Stewards Cup and its consolation race.
These festival meetings produce big payouts on the tote and I will be trying to get the Exacta/Tricast for each of those races.
Bet 365 offer 5 places on the Stewards Cup as do the sponsors Blue Sq and 888sport.
It will be interesting to see whether Fallon rides Hawkeyethenoo, if he gets in, or Palace Moon who ran very well in both the Wokingham and the Bunbury Cup as both are ath the head of the market.
At this stage it looks as though Dandy Nicholls Victoire De Lyphar will not get into the race and I would rate him a good bet in the consolation race.
Johannes (Tom Segal's selection) has come in for some support in the Stewards Cup today as has Kevin Ryan's Parisian Pyramid.
You can look at my earlier post on the Stewards Cup (which I posted on 13th July 2010) which sums up my thoughts at the moment. Obviously when we get the draw on thursday and know for definite what the runners will be I will be in a position to give the race a further look.
The next race I will be concentrating on however is the Audi King George Stakes on Thursday at Goodwood as well as the Class 3 5f Handicap which is the last race on the card that day. I note that Jeremy Noseda has booked Ryan Moore for Group Therapy in the Audi and if the fast ground remains the stable feel he will go close.
There is an interesting Class 3 5f 3yo Handicap on Friday at Goodwood which sees Little Garcon, Perfect Blossom and Rule of Nature line up and at Newmarket later that night Cheveton may run if we get any rain betwen now and then.
So as you can see there is a great end to this week and we just have to twiddle our thumbs a bit in the meantime.
