AL QAQAA (1.10 Goodwood, 2pts win 9/4)

This can go to AL QAQAA who demolished his field at Newmarket with the minimum of fuss and has the ability to improve through the handicap ranks. He has been given a 9lb rise for his recent exploits but a mark of 88 on handicap debut could easily still underestimate him on basis of his novice form.

Newmarket was the first time he has been seen to maximum effect after being short of room at York and running over an inadequate test at Chelmsford but even both of those runs suggest this handicap mark is well within reach. Mafia Power is feared but was given an enterprising ride last time and is now 11lb higher and Cepheuscan follow the pair home after a good effort at Kempton last time.

ONE MASTER (1.45 Goodwood, 3pts win 15/8)

This is a big drop in grade for ONE MASTER who has ran 10 of her last 11 starts in Group 1 company and you have to go all the way back to May of last year to find her last start out of that grade.

The last time she contested a Group 3 such as this was in 2018 and it was a winning one. She is hard to oppose back at 7f and providing she gets the luck in running she should prove extremely tough to beat.

FINAL SONG (1.45 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 14/1)

Likely playing for place money but it’s hard to ignore the three-year-old FINAL SONG, who will appreciate this return to a quicker surface and was better than the bare result at Haydock in a hot conditions race last time.

She is unexposed over this trip on this ground and has excuses for her two other runs this season, including when not seeing out the 1m trip when fourth behind Love in the 1,000 Guineas. She could have been dealt a better draw but she is not out of this on weight adjusted ratings coming out on par with the favourite.

WILLIE JOHN (2.45 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 16/1)

This is a tough race but gut feeling is that we haven’t seen the best of WILLIE JOHN yet and the handicapper has given him a chance after dropping him 4lb for his return effort when racing on the wrong side of the track in the Royal Hunt Cup. He ran well for a long way there before the 280-day break and lack of fitness took its toll.

He is unexposed over 1m after failing to stay 10f last term and this is only his second start in a handicap. If he is able to reproduce the form he showed at this track last May when finding only Elarqam too good, he should run away with this contest.

He has been gelded since his reappearance run in the Royal Hunt Cup along with his half brother Prince Eiji who improved for it when chasing home Global Giant in a Listed event there after so the hope is it can have the same effect.

BALTIC BARON (2.45 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 18/1)

The draw may have killed BALTIC BARON’s chances here given that only one double0figure stall has won this in the last ten years but he does offer some each-way value given how unlucky he was when denied a clear run in this race last term.

He is 3lb lower this time around and can be forgiven his run at York over 1m2f in the John Smith’s Cup last time when failing to see out the trip and this sharp mile really seemed to suit last year.

Connections opt for the first-time blinkers which could make the difference. His form figures in first-time headgear read 55, the first here at Goodwood and the second in the Royal Hunt Cup. He is worth chancing in an open event.

DREAM WITH ME (3.25 Pontefract, 1pt win 11/4)

DREAM WITH ME receives lumps of weight from his elders here and he has been steadily progressive this term. He wasn’t seen to best effect behind Boss Power last time and this extra distance should suit him off a workable handicap mark.

He wasn’t disgraced when third of three runners behind two other progressive three-year-olds at Leicester the time before over 1m2f when just outpaced and he has shown enough to be able to get off the mark in handicap company.
