The revenge on the downs was the result of yesterday with Richard Hughes giving Toronado a peach of a ride. With that winner, I also had places for Excess Knowledge, who was very unlucky, and looks a good St Leger prospect. I also had a place with Parbold, who took an age to get going! On to today and my nap is the repeat of Tuesday, with the better ground after a drying out spell, I hope he runs today!
AUSSIE REIGNS 1415 GOODWOOD (nap) – (3rd – 25-1) this horse has been running so consistently this year over a mile. He ran very flat last time and I'm willing to discount that. He has won here before at last year's festival and whilst this is a step up on previous victories I think he has a race like this in him. The extra distance is interesting, and to see him entered so soon after a withdrawal makes me think he's ready to go in.
JALLOTA 1445 GOODWOOD (nb) – (unplaced) is ultra consistent and deserves a race like this. He has pretty decent form and a reproduction of his third in the July Stakes will see him go close here.
BROWN PANTHER 1515 GOODWOOD (treble) – (WON 13-2) I love is horse and he ran really well to take his return race at Pontefract. He should really enjoy the extended trip and has the speed to burn his rivals off in the closing stages.
