Yesterday confirmed what many others knew, that Goodwood produces shocks aplenty. Big price winners and some really tight racing are a trademark of this Glorious meeting.
Today’s Feature event the Goodwood Cup is the most open for years with arguably 4 horses that could go off Favourite. A Trip to Paris took the Ascot Gold Cup and has improved on every performance in a stunning season. He will most likely hang off the pace along with other leading contender Big Orange. The Michael Bell charge has a patchy form record however.
Quest For More steps up from Handicap company for the first time and despite winning a valuable handicap at Newcastle this might be a little much for him. The last of the four is Simenon from the powerful Mullins yard. He is well travelled and has Frankie Dettori on board. I feel that it would be an amazing training performance.
So for me A Trip to Paris is the one. the 4 year old has displayed admirable consistency and you can back him Each way at 5/1 as a virtual free bet.
Below are my fancies for the other races on Ladies Day
1435 Steady Pace
1545 Hidden Gold
