Saturday runners...

13:50 Goodwood - Brian The Snail

Brian is Brian I’m afraid. He never raised a gallop in the Sky Bet Dash last Saturday but he can do that on us. He has the ability to run a good race if in the mood, though.

13:50 Goodwood - Gabrial The Devil

He probably wants a little slower ground to be at his best but he comes here in good form and track and trip will suit.

13:50 Goodwood - Gabrial The Saint

On the face of it he was disappointing in Ireland but I just feel the draw beat him that day and he’s still going well at home.

13:50 Goodwood - Get The Rhythm

He ran here on Thursday but if I had the choice I think this six furlongs would be the better trip for him. If he comes out of the other race ok he'll run.

13:50 Goodwood - Paddy Power

He was also in action earlier in the week, running in the Magnolia Cup. I thought he ran ok at York the other day but you would imagine a bit of slower ground would suit him better.

13:50 Goodwood - Powerallied

Chester is his bag but Marwan Koukash was keen to come here and it’s worth a go with the money on offer.

14:15 Thirsk - Eva Maria

She ran well first time but this is a warm little race and there are a couple in against her I'd be worried about. She has a chance of being placed, though.

14:40 Newmarket - Three Coins

I thought she ran very well under the penalty at Beverley last time and the handicapper has given her a chance off 75. If the step to six suits she’ll run a big race.

15:25 Thirsk - Right Action

He'll love the ground and would probably just have needed his last run at Newmarket after a bit of a break. He's in good order and will go well.

15:30 Doncaster - Gabrials Boy

He goes alright, I'd be a little surprised if he could win on debut he should go ok and build on the run moving forwards.

15:40 Goodwood - Aljady

He never travelled at all here on Wednesday and we just don't know why. On some of his best form he'd have a small chance in this.

15:40 Goodwood - Cosmic Law

You'd have to think slower ground would suit him better but we’re going to take the chance and run him on Saturday. He’s been performing well and we’re happy with him at home but to win a race like this he'd probably need everything in is favour and we were hoping the rain would come for him.

15:40 Goodwood - George Bowen

He has lost his way a little but but can do that and a big field here will really suit him. He's going well at home and isn't one to draw a line through.

15:40 Goodwood - Growl

On a very good go day he'd run a very big race. I think he was fourth in it last year off a higher mark and got a little messed around in the Sky Bet Dash, he just didn't get a clear passage. I'm not saying he'll win but he could easily outrun his odds.

15:50 Newmarket - Ventura Ocean

He's running right up to his best, his last two runs have been very good, but he hasn't anything to hide from the handicapper. He's vulnerable to getting beat but I’ve been pleased with him of late.

16:00 Thirsk - Calvados Spirit

He ran ok in the claimer the other day and the handicapper as dropped him a pound. He won’t mind the trip, ground or track.

16:00 Thirsk - Irreverent

This is a horse I like a lot. I thought it was a messy race at York for him last time and the step up a mile will definitely suit. He should run a big race.

16:15 Goodwood - Lawaa

On his form he needs to step up but the debut run will have done him the world of good and he has a chance of being placed.

17:00 Newmarket - Arctic Fox

She's in great form and I still think she has a little in hand and with track and trip sure to suit, she's another I'm looking forward to running.

17:15 Doncaster - Orange Blossom

She's new to us and has been working very well at home. She shows plenty and on some of her old form could be well handicapped so I’m hoping for a big run from her.

17:45 Doncaster - Fairy Stories

We’ve no excuses for her. She went up 12 pounds for winning a bad race at Nottingham and has struggled since. Slower ground will suit.

17:50 Hamilton - Mr Fudge

The handicapper has given him a chance off 73 and he’d have each-way claims on his nursery debut.

18:50 Hamilton - Cool Spirit

He’s back to where he won and I thought he ran ok at York the other day. Six furlongs on slow ground at Hamilton will really suit this fellow.

18:50 Hamilton - Lucky Lucky Man

We’ve been waiting for some soft ground with him and now he has hit but I’d be a little surprised if he finished in front of Cool Spirit.
