Soft ground could be a game-changer at Glorious Goodwood


The build-up to day two of the Qatar Goodwood Festival was dominated by the showdown between dual Guineas winner, Churchill and Lockinge and Queen Anne Stakes winner, Ribchester. As it turned out, the adverse weather had the beating of both. 


With the going changed to soft, Churchill trainer, Aiden O'Brien, took the decision to withdraw his horse before the race and Ribchester struggled in tough conditions, losing to 20/1 shot, Here Comes When. 


Bookmakers and punters alike may re-evaluate their predictions on day three as the softer ground could bring other horses into contention. 


Here at Betting Sites, we continue are Festival preview. 


13:50 – Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap 

Keeping in line with the rest of the week's racing, the day's opener is wide open. Although the draw is not key over 1m1f, Frontispiece will be slightly happier with a stall 18 draw now the horses from stalls 16 and 17 have been withdrawn. 


Race odds (courtesy of Bet365) 

Addeybb - 7/2 

Good Omen - 11/2 

Hold Sway - 7/1 

Frontispiece - 10/1 

Kings Gift - 12/1 

 

14:25 – Markel Insurance Fillies' Stakes 

The persistent rain seemed to hamper Ribchester's chances in the Sussex Stakes but, by contrast, Godolphin's hopes of winning this have been improved by the softening ground. Endless Time won the Lancashire Oaks last year on testing ground and her chances will be boosted by the continuing rain. 


Race Odds 

Endless Time - 11/4 

Melodic Motion - 9/2 

Dubka - 6/1 

Diamonds Pour Moi - 8/1 

Natural Scenery - 9/1 

Dawn Horizons - 9/1 


15:00 – Qatar Richmond Stakes 

Cardsharp can defy a penalty and land this 6f contest for Mark Johnston. The last three winners of this race all won the preceding July Stakes at Newmarket, won this year by Cardsharp. Albeit, three of the horses behind him that day are non-runners today; US Navy Flag, Grand Koonta and Invincible Army. 


Race Odds 

Nebo - 11/4 

Cardsharp - 11/4 

Headway - 4/1 

Barraquero - 6/1 

Green Power - 14/1 

Etefaaq - 16/1 


15:35 – Qatar Nassau Stakes 

Aiden O'Brien has the chance to bounce back from Churchill's disappointment with Winter given a big chance in the Nassau Stakes. Winter was second to stablemate, Hydrangea, in her season reappearance but has kicked on emphatically since then. The dual 1,000 Guineas winner won the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot last time out and can make it four Group 1 wins in a row with a win here. 


Race Odds 

Winter - 6/4 

So Mi Dar - 4/1 

Sobetsu - 11/2 

Queen's Trust - 11/2 

Hydrangea - 12/1 


16:10 – Telegraph Nursery 

Richard Hannon has won this race three times in ten years and has a big chance again, this year. Hannon's yard has four runners this year, including Billesdon Brook, Tangled, Royal Household and Cheeky Rascal. 


Billesdon Brook is the bookies' favourite and on previous form will run off a good mark. But Ryan Moore has opted for Tangled, another of Hannon's horses. Tangled impressed when winning at Newmarket last month but is up 11lb for that effort. 


Race Odds 

Billesdon Brook - 4/1 

Poetic Steps - 6/1 

Veejay - 7/1 

Poet's Prince - 7/1 

Tangled - 8/1 

Cosmopolitan Queen - 10/1 

Starlight Mystery - 11/1 

Jedi Master - 12/1 


16:45 – Victoria Racing Club EBF British Stallion Studs Maiden Fillies' Stakes 

Like he did with Churchill yesterday, Aiden O'Brien has decided to withdraw the much-fancied, Magical, for this maiden fillies' stakes. The withdrawal of the full sister of last year's winner, Rhododendron, has left the door open for Roulette. Trainer, Michael Bell, will not take a win for granted, especially after Big Orange's disappointment in Tuesday' Goodwood Cup. 


Race Odds 

Roulette – Evens 

Ripley - 5/1 

Zilara - 6/1 

Miss Paris - 15/2 

Ann Without An E - 8/1 


17:20 – Tatler Handicap 

Thursday's racing concludes very much as it starts, with a near-impossible-to-call handicap. Any one of these eight 3-year olds can win over 5f and luck in-running could play a huge part.  


Carlton Frankie can bounce back from her failed attempt at a four-timer last time out at York, albeit over 6f in a much stronger field. The drop in trip and class could benefit Michael Easterby's charge under the guidance of jockey, Silvestre de Sousa.  


Race Odds 

Quench Dolly - 7/2 

Intense Romance - 4/1 

Megan Lily - 6/1 

Poet's Society - 13/2 

Carlton Frankie - 13/2
