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.

Royal Ascot Day 4

Well so far this week has been a disaster for me! The closest I have got is second and a couple of thirds. That however I suppose is Royal Ascot – tough, competitive handicaps and quality Group races where a whole host of horses can win. On I go to Friday in search of a winner!
 
I have had a look and selected three that I fancy at Ascot and one elsewhere.
 
GLEN COUNTESS 1720 MARKET RASEN (nap) – (WON – 8-1) this horse needs to improve again to take this but I think she can. She has solid form at this level and can go in again on this ground. If the forecast rain comes and gets in, she is proven on softer surfaces too.
 
MAUREEN 1545 ASCOT (nb) – (unplaced) the forgotten horse!I have always rated this horse and while she didn't run to what I believe is her class in both Guineas, she cannt be discounted from this. If the forecast rain comes I think it will help her chances too. I think she will run a big race!
 
LABARINTO 1625 ASCOT (treble) – (unplaced) this boy is enigmatic to say the least! Can be hugely talented on his day as he showed at Sandown last year. He went well fresh that day, one of the reasons I like his chances in this. Secondly, his owner has stuck with him, there aren't many Abdullah horses at 5, who are gelded and still his. On a decent mark too considering that Sandown success.
 
ES QUE LOVE 1735 ASCOT – (unplaced) Cliff horse or what! However, I thought he ran really well in the Hunt Cup and got going in the last furlong and a half. He's on the same mark and turned out quickly again with the same jockey. The drop in trip will help and I think he has a great chance of place money at least. And I have tunnel vision with this horse!!!
