Glorious Goodwood Day 3

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) – 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) – 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) – 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.

Glorious Goodwood Day 1

Here we go then! The big summer festival of racing is on us. It's a cracking week and one I always look forward to, but finding a winner or two can prove difficult. Lets hope I can find a few as the week progresses. Enjoy the racing and good luck if you're having a flutter.
 
AUSSIE REIGNS 1650 GOODWOOD (nap) – (NR) 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.
 
 
SLEEPER KING 1430 GOODWOOD (nb) – (unplaced) he has to find a bit to reverse the form with a few of these, including the favourite. However, I thought he was a little unlucky that day in the Windsor Castle as he took the whole field along and needed a bit of company earlier than he got it. At this track he can dominate again and use his bags of speed to good effect.
 
 
FAIR VALUE 1725 GOODWOOD (treble) – (unplaced) this horse loves a downhill fast five and he should get it today. Kieren Fallon has ridden him before and should know what he is about. Some pacey horses are in and around him which will keep him up to his task. He's not top weight for 'nowt.
 
 
KRYPTON FACTOR 1505 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) I really think this step up to 7f will help today, he took an age to get going last time at Newbury and the extra furlong should help. This track will also suit him I reckon and I can see Fallon, who knows this horse inside out, coaxing him through a gap in the final furlong.
 
LABARINTO 1355 GOODWOOD – (3rd – 12-1) this horse is either great or poor. Last time was poor! However, he won here last season on the back of a couple of awful runs and some horses really enjoy this course, he may be one of them. Willing to give him another go!
 
CLOWANCE ESTATE 1540 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) this horse is the least experienced but may have themost progression to come. The trip should bring out a little more and I'm expecting a good show.
