REWAAYAT (1.50 Goodwood, 2pts win 10/3)

REWAAYAT steps up in grade for this highly competitive Stewards Cup Consolation race after dismantling his field at Salisbury last time with a career-best effort. He has been given a 12lb rise in the weights but even that looks lenient given the rpr he clocked and his mark of 85 is still 10lb below that figure.

He is 2-3 over six furlongs on good or better ground and the other effort was his debut run in a maiden at Newbury which was won by the 109-rated Beshaayir with Fox Trot Lady (97) in second, so it’s easily forgiven. He is likely to rate much higher than this in the near future and he can ride this upward curve to victory.

CALLING THE WIND (2.25 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 7/1)

There was no fluke about CALLING THE WIND’s victory at Ascot and, despite the winning margin of a neck, he had more in hand than that would suggest when he and the runner-up pulled 6 lengths clear of the field.

He is lightly raced for a four-year-old but he seems to be coming to hand at the right time for a race of this nature and is unexposed over this trip. There is likely to be a strong pace on despite the numbers here, which will suit, and he has been overlooked in the market likely because of his winning price tag of 40/1 last time out.

The runner-up ran well next time off a 5lb higher mark of 90 finishing second at Newbury just under a length so a 7lb higher mark here for the selection should be within reach. A few of these are exposed and have questions to answer either about the trip or their recent form and Richard Hughes’s runner is worth chancing to back that recent effort up.

GEORGE BOWEN (3.35 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 33/1)

I think I have written GEORGE BOWEN up three times now, twice without a run and last time he blew the start losing upwards of five lengths, which can of course be forgiven.

I will not bore you with the same story. I will just reiterate that he is now 15lb lower than his last handicap win in March last year and was fifth in this race in 2018 off a handicap mark of 106. He bounced back to form at Pontefract behind Summerghand prior to his mishap at York and the old favourite is worth one last chance to capitalise on this falling mark before going down in grade.

SWINDLER (3.35 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 14/1)

SWINDLER hates Newmarket so anything he has done there can be forgiven. Take away those two runs and his form figures read 11322 and his form as a two-year-old could hardly look stronger. This track should suit his strong finishing style as they tend to go very hard up front in the early stages and he simply can’t be written off of this handicap mark of 96.

WATAN (3.35 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 11/1)

WATAN has always had the potential to be better than a handicapper so given he showed up well for a long time behind today’s favourite after a mammuth 378-day break and was only beaten 2 lengths, it is likely there is more to come from him over this trip and a mark of 103 given his form from last year and 2018 should not be beyond him.

KING RAGNAR (4.10 Goodwood, 0.5pts each-way 15/2)

KING RAGNAR had plenty in hand at the finish at Leicester and a 5lb rise for that looks more than fair but he is unexposed over 7f and his form throughout this term is rock solid. He was always screaming out for this step up to 7f but he showed he wasn’t short of speed in a hot Newmarket handicap over 6f so this track should suit him well. He is on an upward curve at the moment and there looks to be no reason why he shouldn’t continue that way.

MAGICAL MAX (5.30 Hamilton, 1pt each-way 9/1)

I am really surprised in the price of MAGICAL MAX given his form lines behind Ivatheengine at Newmarket over today’s trip and Ishvara at Haydock over 5f (good to soft) are the strongest on offer and he had a clear excuse when a non stayer in a hot Doncaster Class 3 handicap over 7f last time out.

The drop back to 6f which saw him record progressive rprs of 82, 84 and 87 in his short career to date is a big positive as is the drop in grade into Class 4 company. He receives 4lb from his elders who are relatively exposed and the three-year-olds need to produce a career best on this quicker ground.

TASHBEEH (7.00 Chepstow, 1pt win 10/3)

A rare bet in a two-year-old race for me but TASHBEEH showed enough to think that a mark of 68 is well within his reach when chasing home the 106-rated Ventura Tormenta at Yarmouth in early July when he was beaten just 3 lengths under careful handling.

The second is rated 75 and he showed a good turn of foot to think that he would be one to follow in handicaps going forward. This is Ed Dunlop’s only runner on the card and he has a 23% strike rate and is +£5.15 to a £1 level stake. He is 1/1 with his 2yo sprinters here but that one did go off 9/4f so its worth keeping an eye on the market.
