2019 THE GOODWOOD – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Should be decent enough pace in the G1 sprint. The Goodwood usually has some top drawer horses in it but this year seems a bit weaker. That brings the mares into it and SPRIGHT (2) is just flying. She came from last in the Sangster with a brilliant last furlong. The wide gate helps her build momentum. Tough to hold off.

COOL PASSION (8) was there until the last 25m last time. She'll be in the same spot to run well again. VALOUR ROAD (7) is an interesting Perth runner. He was good in the Euclase Stakes and has contested at this level.

BOOKER (1) won the Oakleigh Plate but is up in weight today. She does fly first up. ICONOCLASM (10) has a great strike rate. He is a horse of good talent.

R7 MORPHETTVILLE 18 May 2019
The Goodwood 3U , 1200m
Race Synopsis: Despatch is building an impressive record with seven wins in 11 starts including four stakes, this being his first Group 1, and is unbeaten in four starts this preparation. He co-led early then took over alone to set the pace from the 1000m. Going comfortably around the corner and approaching the straight he was up by a length, sped clear by two at the 300m and tried to slip them. That plan saw him increase the lead slightly but inside the 100m the challenges were on but he rallied well then held on grimly by a neck at the post. Behemoth was midfield, locked away on the rails from the 600m, was blocked until the 100m then flew between runners very late to get up for an unlucky second. Spright put up a nice effort. Third last (rails) turning in, she hugged the fence all the way up the straight, accelerated into second but was swamped by Behemoth very late, while Hard Empire was handy enough at the 300m but kept on well to the line for fourth.
