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

1405      Resonant

1435      Steady Pace

1545       Hidden Gold
