It’s the final day of racing at Glorious Goodwood with the Lillie Langtry Stakes (15:05) and Stewards’ Cup (15:40) among the highlights in Sussex.
It’s often a day where long shots can land, given the size and competitiveness of some of today’s fields.
Out tipster is back with his selections as the festival wraps up for another summer…
Glorious Goodwood Tips – Day 5 Preview
Here are his racing tips for today’s five ITV races from Goodwood, as well as two picks from Newmarket:
🏇 13:20 – Farasi Lane – 10/1 EW
Showed plenty in last run-out at Sandown to suggest leading claims today winning as a 7/1 shot to record first success since November. Still yet to score at Goodwood but went agonisingly close here back in May over this distance.
🏇13:55 – Music Society – 14/1 EW
Assured performer who has been no lower than second in six of last eight starts; including two narrow seconds on last two outings at York and Hamilton. Current mark could be also in his favour as he looks to improve on underwhelming showing at last year’s meeting.
🏇 14:30 – Win O’Clock – 10/1 EW
Hasn’t quite been living up to his name of late after struggling to build on a highly impressive 2020 campaign that saw him notch five wins. Signs are there, however, that a bold bid can be expected here after a partial return to form when second at Haydock three weeks ago, outsmarting many of his rivals today.
🏇 15:05 – Wonderful Tonight – 4/6
Market favourite will surely mean business here having been redirected to this Grade 2 contest after being withdrawn from last week’s King George due to ground concerns. The softer conditions at Sussex should play to her strengths with all her signature wins coming in the mud. William Buick is also booked as the pair bid to make it a hat-trick of high-calibre wins.
🏇 15:40 – Mr Lupton – 20/1 EW
Hot and cold performer seems worth another look in the always hard-to-call Stewards’ Cup; has often saved his best for big fields, including notable wins at the Curragh and York since last summer. One for the shortlist provided he can leave poor Royal Ascot run behind.
🏇 14:10 – Cashew – 7/1 EW
Tough nut to crack on evidence of best form but needs to respond after falling some level short of his best at Catterick earlier this month; progressive beside that run since debut but may appreciate some rainfall in Suffolk overnight having been shown to best effect on softer ground.
🏇 14:45 – Sayyida – 7/2
Stylish performer for Charlie Appleby’s in-form yard since debut, showing plenty in two wins at Newmarket this summer. That spell included a C&D success just last month, and this smart filly looks suited to this sterner test today at the July Course.
