Tip Of The Day: 5.50 Goodwood - Tall Ship

It's been a fairly quiet week for the Sporting Life Notebook, but hopefully we can end it with a winner when Tall Ship lines up in the Chichester Observer Handicap at Goodwood this afternoon.

Bought out of Sir Michael Stoute's yard by Gary Moore, after his son Ryan offered a very positive opinion on the potential purchase, he scored first time out for new connections at the Glorious meeting.

The handicapper has been more than fair in only pushing Tall Ship up 5lb in the weights for that tidy victory and he can go in again here, with no doubts over track or trip and Shane Kelly a positive booking.

Moore has half an eye on a juvenile hurdling campaign later this year for Tall Ship, who has the size and talent to make an impact over obstacles. But in the meantime another decent prize such as this looks to be his for the taking.
