Top tipster Andrew Mount was among the winners with Lovely Breeze on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood and he has three bets on Wednesday
BROOMY LAW - (2.45 Redcar, 2pts win - 9/2)
It’s arguable that odds-on favourite Sweet Believer was flattered by her Nottingham win under forcing tactics and I much prefer the claims of Kevin Ryan’s BROOMY LAW. He was only third at Carlisle last time but the track was massively biased that day, favouring wide runners, and he took the inside route under a prominent ride whereas the two that beat him raced widest of all under patient tactics.
The other two prominent racers dropped away to finish sixth and seventh of the seven runners (beaten by five and nine and-a-half lengths), so his one-length defeat was an excellent effort.
SOLLER BAY - (2:45pm Redcar, 1pt win - 18/1)
I also want to back SOLLER BAY, who did best of the prominent racers when a ten-length fourth at Nottingham last time. That was an unusual meeting, as all the round-course winners came from off the pace on a track that usually favours prominent types.
Pride Of Hawridge, seventh after chasing the front-running Ballycommon in the early stages, bolted up at Salisbury next time and Ballycommon finished a respectable 50-1 sixth in a higher grade at York.
QUEEN’S SARGENT – (5.20 Goodwood, 1pt each-way - 33/1)
The headwind is forecast to pick up during race at Goodwood tomorrow and I’m very wary of backing frontrunners. QUEEN’S SARGENT likes to pass rivals and could be worth chancing at big odds in the 7f handicap that closes Wednesday’s card. Kevin Ryan’s veteran grey was well beaten at York last time (June 12th) but he’s 0-7 at that venue and seems best at this time of year.
His handicap record in July/August reads 4290921112 (3-10) and he’ll handle the ground better than most.
