17:00 Goodwood Fri 23 August 2019
Comfortable winner of this last year. Not tasted success since, but his mark has been steadily sliding ad he is now running off a 2lb lower mark. Not running badly this season, and could be about to come to the boil at the perfect time.
Despite only winning once from 22 starts, she is easily the most consistent sort in this line-up. Hasn't finished out of the placings in any of her seven starts this season. Major claims on the strength of her fourth at Newmarket last weekend.
Running well this season apart from the one blip. Produced another good effort last time to finish runner-up to the progressive Magical Ride at Lingfield (6f; good). Doesn't look to be anything as well-treated as that rival in this race.
0-6 but still unexposed in handicaps. Unable to follow up neck-second at Leicester (6f; good to firm) two starts ago when he was a well-fancied (6-4f) favourite at Yarmouth (6f; good to firm) most recently but could only manage seventh.
Does have something to find. Best effort of his season so far came when he was runner-up at Leicester (6f; good to soft) in June. However, that came in a seller, and his efforts in Class 5 handicaps this season have not been good enough.
Seemed to be holding his form quite well, but his consistency has taken a bit of a nosedive of late. Never looked like threatening in his last four starts, and recent Newbury (6f; good to firm) effort was most disappointing. Plenty to prove.
Likes it here but inconsistent at present. Not beaten far when fifth at Windsor (6f; good to firm) recently, which was more encouraging than his effort at Ffos Las (6f; good to firm) two starts ago. Difficult to know what version of him to expect.
Won a handicap/median auction stakes last season. Desperately out of form in seven starts since making seasonal reappearance in April though, and quiet effort at Windsor (6f; good) on Monday suggests her turn is not forthcoming.
