Goodwood - Saturday 27th May 2017

  • 14:00 - Matchbook Betting Exchange Festival Stakes (Listed)

    MOUNT LOGAN won a Listed race here last May on his seasonal debut and his outstanding course record just gives him the edge in a competitive heat. Spark Plug was an impressive winner of the Cambridgeshire last season and he made a pleasing comeback when third at Newmarket last month, where Abdon was close behind. The latter remains open to further improvement and he may well reverse that form today, while Tullius is also noted.

  • 14:35 - Basketmakers Company Celebration EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes (Plus 10)

    BILLESDON BROOK and Madeline both showed ability on their racecourse debuts and that experience gives them a big edge today. The former gets the nod today because the form of her Salisbury third-placed finish is marginally stronger than the latter's Ascot run. This race is full of interesting newcomers and it would be no surprise to see a few give the selection plenty to think about, with Sardenya and Salty Sugar arguably the pick of them.

  • 15:10 - Winners Are Welcome At Matchbook Handicap

    A cracking handicap with endless chances, headed by Top Score who came home less than 4l behind Churchill when seventh in the 2000 Guineas. Moving back into handicap company is an intriguing decision but he must surely go well with George Wood's 5lb claim making life easier. However, a chance is taken with HYDE PARK. Not seen since hacking up at Doncaster last autumn, the Gosden gelding looked an enticing prospect and may be able to defy his absence off a potentially attractive mark. Aardwolf, Horroob and Bless Him head a host of other possibles although the latter's case is not helped by being 5lb out of the handicap.

  • 15:45 - Smarter Bets At Matchbook Tapster Stakes (Listed)

    Roger Varian's string are currently in excellent form and the hugely likeable BARSANTI looks the one to take the beating. The son of Champs Elysees was one of the handicap success stories of 2016 having improved 35lb in the ratings and may yet have more to offer on only his twelfth start. Second Step shaped with promise on his return at Newbury in the John Porter so is respected, while Desert Encounter arrives having posted a career best at Ascot last time.

  • 16:20 - Gentleman's Measure In Memory Of Phil Wiggins Handicap

    Batts Rock has some smart form to his name and remains open to much improvement on just his fifth career start, while The Cashel Man and Blakeney Point can be forgiven their Chester Cup displays in what was a messy contest. Oriental Fox rarely runs a bad race but TOP TUG has the best form on offer after just losing out to the classy Frontiersman at Newmarket recently and a repeat would probably be enough.

  • 16:55 - Better Odds With Matchbook Veterans' Handicap

    Pettochside won this contest 12 months ago but his recent performances suggest the handicapper has his measure for now. Preference is for MORACHE MUSIC, who has dropped to a workable mark and hinted his turn was approaching when third over 7f at Lingfield last time. Gold Club wasn't beaten far by Picture Dealer at Yarmouth last time and has place possibilities. Recent Windsor winner Englishman is respected, while Joe Packet has also slipped to a good mark, though he has an absence to overcome.

  • 17:25 - Matchbook Betting Podcast EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes (Plus 10)

    The tongue-tie applied to CONTENTMENT can see a return to form for William Haggas' filly and she tries seven furlongs for the second time having chased home the handy Poet's Vanity on her first attempt at the distance. Deleyla looks the main danger and is an interesting newcomer for the in-form Roger Varian, while Music Lesson drops back in trip and that is sure to suit having come unstuck, if not disgraced, when racing over a mile.
