ASAASSI is one to watch in this massively competitive handicap to start Thursday’s Goodwood action

Asaassi is seeking a hattrick after taking his form forward this season. Following a wind op, he came on strong to win a Salisbury maiden then at York.

The York run was a handicap debut for him and he has more to bring to the table potentially in this tougher assignment.

MIDGAM completed a hattrick when he got to the line first to score at Doncaster in June.

He comes up 6lb from that one, which may reel him in a bit, but Migdam still poses a big threat.

He’s going in the right direction, and has Ryan Moore booked as well. Claims are there.

WARREN POINT has had a very strong start to his career as well, quickly firing off back-to-back wins.

He was second on his latest effort, missing the hattrick. But he ran with tremendous credit in an Ascot handicap, beaten only by another good one.

VEE SIGHT is another of the strong crop in this handicap and won his handicap debut at Sandown last month.

That was his first run following a gelding op and he looked dominant.

The form from that win reads well, so he should have plenty to offer as he comes up in distance.

Tip: ASSASSI 6/1

Ones to watch: Warren Point 13/2, Migdam 10/3

14:25 Richmond Stakes Glorious Goodwood Tips

Race Type: Group 2
Age: 2-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 6f

Race Preview

ROYAL SCOTSMAN has won one of his three efforts so far but is expected to be right in this one.

The victory that he put on the board was at course and distance.

His form went skywards after that as he was third in the Coventry at Royal Ascot.

SWIFT ASSET has possibilities in this contest as he looks like the move up to the 6f trip will help him out.

He opened his account at the second time of asking.

A sparkling sixth place finish in the Super Sprint at Newbury was eye-catching as it was from a terrible draw.

CHATEAU has won two of four and is another with some solid claims in the Richmond on Thursday.

His second win came on his latest run, which was in a Newbury Listed fixture a couple of weeks ago at this same distance.

Tip: SWIFT ASSET 20/1 e/w

Ones to watch: Royal Scotsman 11/8, Chateau 3/1

15:00 Gordon Stakes Glorious Goodwood Tips

Race Type: Group 3
Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 1m 4f

Race Preview

JACK DARCY is an interesting one in this Group 3 as he is putting his unbeaten record on the line.

It has been two wins from two by him. The second of those was a handicap at Windsor three weeks ago.

Form from that Windsor’s victory was very recently boosted, so there are exciting claims there.

NEW LONDON was back in winning form last time out when he collected a victory in a strong handicap at Newmarket three weeks ago.

This distance should be right in his wheelhouse.

It’s been three wins in four appearances so far, the one upset coming in a runners-up finish in the Chester Vase. He should be right in the thick of it at Goodwood.

WEST WIND BLOWS is another that is worth a look here in a nicely competitive fixture.

He was knocking around in Listed company last time out and was impressive with winning form at Hamilton.

That was a nice response for West Wind Blows as he had struggled to get into the Derby in the race before that.

Tip: JACK DARCY 12/1

Ones to watch: New London 7/4, West Wind Blows 6/1

15:35 Nassau Stake Glorious Goodwood Tips

Race Type: Fillies and Mares Group 1
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 1m 2f

Race Preview

NASHWA brings some hot form to the table at Glorious Goodwood, making her the current front runner.

It’s been three wins in four efforts this season.

She opened the season with back-to-back wins in a Haydock novice then straight into a listed fixture at Newbury.

A third in the Oaks was followed by a Group 1 score in France last month. Nashwa is the one to beat.

DREMALOPER is a good mare and she should be right in the thick of things, giving the favourite plenty of think about.

She too opened the season with back-to-back wins, scoring the Dahlia Stakes and then a Group 1 at Longchamp.

The slight question mark will be about her sticking in there on this trip, as she struggled last time out in the Pretty Polly having been pushed up to 10f.

LILAC ROAD is another to consider for the shortlist in the Nassau Stakes on Thursday.

She opened the season with a fifth in the Dahlia Stakes but leapt forward in form next timeout to land a Group 2 at York.

VILLE DE GRACE is no mug and can’t be dismissed either. She returns after a break of a couple of months.

Ville De Grace had a great time of things last autumn, beating Lilac Road at Newmarket. On her reappearance, she beat Dreamloper in the Dahlia Stakes.

Tip: NASHWA 5/6

Ones to watch: Ville De Grace 12/1, Dreamloper 6/1

16:10 Goodwood Nursery Horse Racing Tips

Race Type: Class 2
Age: 2-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 13
Distance: 7f

Race Preview

FAR SHOT opened his accounts at the first time of asking, landing the goods in a Yarmouth maiden.

He was then pitched into the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot which didn’t pan out.

But Far Shot followed that with an unlucky runners-up spot in a nursery at Ascot three weeks ago. He comes up 4lb but should be a big player.

SEDUCTIVE POWER got off the mark on his third appearance, which was at Newbury four weeks ago.

He should have plenty more in him, especially with the extra distance on offer. Seductive Power looks like a good strong one.

TRUE STATESMAN is on the shortlist as well for Glorious Goodwood tips on Thursday.

He is seeking a hattrick after scoring a Chelmsford maiden before landing a nursery at Chester three weeks ago.

True Statesman was very happy on that move up to 1f for the latter effort. His yard has a good record and there are big claims.

Tip: FAR SHOT 5/1

Ones to watch: True Statesman 4/1, Seductive Power 11/2

16:45 World Pool Handicap Glorious Goodwood Tips

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 14
Distance: 5f

Race Preview

SWAYZE is one to note in this uber-competitive World Pool handicap line-up on Thursday.

He picked up a win at Haydock last time out, making all to score by around half a length against the re-opposing Sir Henry Cotton.

SIR HENRY COTTON was denied the hattrick last time out but Swayze as he finished second to that rival at Haydock.

It was another excellent run by Sir Henry Cotton, however. His two wins came at Windsor and Lingfield and has plenty more to offer.

LE BEAU GARCON did very well as a juvenile and his start to life as a 3-year-old was pretty handy too.

He took a runners-up spot on his handicap debut at Musselburgh. He found the going tougher in a very hot Newmarket run three weeks ago.

Le Beau Garcon is eased in the distance which should help him get back in the picture.

GET AHEAD is another that warrants some respect in this contest as well as she comes down in class.

She was in a strong contest at Ascot last time out, having been tested in Listed contests a couple of times before that.


Ones to watch: Sir Henry Cotton 9/1, Swayze 6/1

17:20 Goodwood Maiden Fillies’ Stakes Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2
Age: 2-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 20
Distance: 7f

Race Preview

DAYDREAM DANCER has her first outing on Thursday, but some excellent breeding and the fact that she cost a pretty penny, means that she warrants some consideration for racing tips.

SHE’S HOT was a good ninth in the Albany Last time out at Royal Ascot. This is an easier assignment for her on Thursday.

There should be further progress from her, just from having had that experience up in grade, alone.

BARLOW BARLOW was a credible runner-up on her debut at Yarmouth last month.

It was a promising run with a good climber on the day and she should do well at the 7f trip.

ZARGA is another to keep an eye on after landing a palace finish on her debut at Kempton last month.

That was at this same distance and given that she showed a touch of greenness, she is entitled to come on.

Tip: SHE’S HOT 11/2

Ones to watch: Daydream Dancer 16/1, Zarga 3/1
