2018 THE GOODWOOD – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Early pace is expected from Ferrando, Thronum, Vega Magic and Overshare. Defending champ VEGA MAGIC is the clear class runner. He hasn't been seen since a successful spring campaign highlighted by a win in the G1 Memsie Stakes and a luckless second in the Everest. Has won three of six fresh runs including this race last year. Can do it again.

VIDDORA is a classy mare who didn't have a lot of luck when resuming and has a good second up record. Missed a run in the Sangster but that may leave her primed for this.

THRONUM was terrific when a half-length second in the G1 William Reid Stakes last start. Has been freshened since then and races best that way. VOODOO LAD has four wins and two placings from six fresh runs so will be wound right up for this.

R7 MORPHETTVILLE 19 May 2018
Darley Goodwood 3U , 1200m
Race Synopsis: After a late-closing fifth in this race last year Santa Ana Lane again steamed home but on this occasion his late run proved successful, which saw him take out his second Group One victory in 26 starts. He settled back in 17th place in the large 20-horse field, before Ben Melham switched him back toward to inner on straightening. He then sprinted well, hit the front at the 50m before going on to score by just over a length. Missrock was nicely placed in fourth spot, just behind the leaders, hit the front on passing the 200m and then fought gamely for a very good second. Three-year-old filly I'll Have A Bit travelled well, midfield, but was held up for clear running on turning for home. She got a late split nearing the 100m and ran on well for a very good third, looking a little unlucky in a smart performance, advancing in class here. Super Cash raced in sixth place, got a split at the 200m and battled on well to dead-heat for fourth with Flamberge who shared the lead (with Thronum) at a good tempo. He hit the front at the 200m and staged a good effort in holding on so well, finishing just two lengths from the winner after his early efforts. The favourite Vega Magic began well from his difficult barrier (14) and raced in third place, but caught three wide outside the leading trio, on a strong tempo. He was under pressure on turning for home and then battled on for (4.2 lengths) eighth in a very sound first up effort under difficult circumstances with his top weight (59kg).
