Glorious Goodwood Day 3 Preview

Day three from Glorious Goodwood on Thursday features another stunning seven races from the magnificent Sussex Downs, with the Group 1 Qatar Nassau Stakes the headline act.They race once more at Glorious Goodwood from 1.50pm-5.20pm and the Racing Post previews all the action for day three of the meeting.


1.50pm - Coral Kincsem Handicap (1m2f)

MIGDAM was giving away weight on seasonal return at Doncaster last month over this trip and had to bide his time before challenging between rivals.

Sir Michael Stoute's charge was eventually well on top having forged on inside the final furlong and the third home from that contest came and out won next time. This promising colt should have more to offer giving that was his first attempt at this trip and he saw it out well.

Warren Point rather pulled away his chances on handicap debut at Ascot in a three-runner contest over 1m4f this month. Charlie Appleby's charge should be better suited back down in trip and in a more conventional field now. He's still one to be on the right side of.

Stablemate Blue Trail has been gelded since finishing well held at Royal Ascot on first attempt at this journey, a race in which he suffered some traffic woes, and should get closer to his prior Epsom conqueror Wanees on these revised terms.

Asaassi has justified favouritism is a pair of lesser contests at Salisbury and York of late for Roger Varian and is entitled to respect, albeit now swimming in deeper waters.

Selection: Migdam

Next Best: Warren Point


2.25pm - Richmond Stakes (Group 2, 6f)

Having run out a five-length winner of a novice event over C&D in May, ROYAL SCOTSMAN headed for Ascot last month and finished a fine third in the Coventry Stakes.

Paul and Oliver Cole will also have taken plenty encouragement from the form of that contest, as the second, third, fourth and fifth were all next-time-out winners - most recently when Mischief Magic scooted home in a maiden here on day one of the meeting.

Given the imperious nature of his course win, the strength of that form and his own subsequent Group 2 placing, the Gleneagles colt looks the one to beat back around here under Jim Crowley.

Once-raced winners Al Karrar for Tom Clover and Marshman for Karl Burke are open to plenty of improvement upped in class, with both having defeated subsequent winners.

Crispy Cat has danced plenty of dances already, though the step up this trip at the Curragh last month brought the worst outcome of his five-race career in the Railway Stakes. That was his third run in a month and perhaps a short break since will have aided Michael O'Callaghan's inmate.

Chateau ran fourth in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot and also gained his Listed win at Newbury when attempting six furlongs for the first time, so Andrew Balding's charge looks a logical threat to all on paper.

Selection: Royal Scotsman

Next Best: Al Karrar


3.00pm - John Pearce Racing Gordon Stakes (Group 3, 1m4f)

New London makes the move from handicap to Group race company after easily dispatching 11 rivals over this trip at Newmarket earlier in the month to land a valuable prize off a mark of 99.

Charlie Appleby's charge had previously finished a distant second behind Changingoftheguard in the Chester Vase in May, the only defeat thus far in his four-race career.

He's got strong claims, but GRAND ALLIANCE has a fair shot at him based on his own Royal Ascot second to the aforementioned Ballydoyle runner Changingoftheguard in the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes.

Charlie Fellowes has already enjoyed a big-race winner here this week and this colt would surely have prevailed at Ascot had he kept a straight line late on.

It's also worth recalling he was stone last and had to come widest of all to challenge rounding the final bend. He was four lengths clear of everything else at the line, and arguably could be coming here carrying a penalty.

Hoo Ya Mal defied odds of 150/1 to be second in the Epsom Derby and has since left Andrew Balding to join George Boughey, he won't be underestimated as such again and his consistent form this season gives him a chance.

Simon and Ed Crisford's West Wind Blows was midfield in the Epsom Classic, but has since demolished his rivals in a Hamilton Listed event and is no forlorn hope now.

Selection: Grand Alliance

Next Best: New London

3.35pm - Qatar Nassau Stakes (Fillies' And Mares' Group 1, 1m2f)

Nashwa didn't quite appear to relish the trip when third in the Epsom Oaks last month behind Tuesday and Emily Upjohn, fading a bit late on, but the John and Thady Gosden-trained filly has since won the Group 1 Prix de Diane at Chantilly over this trip, pulling right away with runner-up La Parisienne.

On that evidence, Hollie Doyle's mount has excellent claims again with more improvement still likely. The odds more than adequately reflect her hopes, however, and an each-way alternative might be the best option here.

This appears to be on the outer limit of Dreamloper's stamina, while Lilac Road bounced back from defeat to that rival at Newmarket by holding off Aristia at York in May. That form has been knocked about since, including when the runner-up struggled in Listed company at Royal Ascot.

Fonteyn and Concert Hall have something to find, though as three-year-olds they are still very much entitled to be finding it, and the same is true of ROGUE MILLENNIUM.

She was only seventh in The Oaks, but ran well when second since in an all-weather Group 3 at Newcastle behind Poptronic, perhaps having committed too soon. This calls for more but, again, she is lightly-raced and at a big price she might sneak into the frame.

Selection: Rogue Milennium

Next Best: Nashwa


4.10pm - Jaeger-Lecoultre Nursery (7f)

There were only five runners, but Far Shot found more than his share of trouble in running when second at Ascot three weeks ago. John and Thady Gosden's colt has been put up 4lb for that losing effort but, from a perfect low draw, should not have any such worries on traffic now.

He joins TRUE STATESMAN in holding strong claims, the latter for the Mark and Charlie Johnston operation and seeking a hat-trick after wins at Chelmsford and Chester in strong fashion. He gave weight and a beating to his rivals last time and, with Ryan Moore on board now and the stable doing well this week, he may well land his treble.

York winner Miss Jungle Cat for Karl Burke, as well as another Johnston runner, Centre Court, and Michael Dods' handicap debutante Prairie Falcon complete the shortlist.

Selection: True Statesman

Next Best: Far Shot


4.45pm - World Pool Handicap (5f)

Shamalan has C&D-winning form this season already and Kevin Philippart De Foy's charge could go well back here given he's mostly held his form in four runs since.

Swayze is entitled to be on the premises, having held off Sir Henry Cotton at Haydock last time, both appear likely to be challengers.

Dusky Prince keeps on winning and isn't handicapped out of this in his quest for a four-timer for Archie Watson and Hollie Doyle, though Hamilton winner Silky Wilkie should find this a good deal tougher.

Kape Moss has a high draw and so Ray Dawson will have to be on his game to poach the lead, but the C&D-winning filly would be dangerous if getting in an advantageous early position.

LE BEAU GARCON was second on handicap bow at Musselburgh in June and stepped up on that form despite finishing seventh in a valuable Class 2 contest at Newmarket three weeks ago. Mick Easterby's charge should give another good account with a return to 5f no issue.

Selection: Le Beau Garcon

Next Best: Dusky Prince


5.20pm - Tatler EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes (7f)

This fillies' maiden rounds off the day three action, but it's anything but easy to sort out.

Luckin Brew bumped into a promising all-the-way winner on debut at Newmarket earlier this month and Ralph Beckett's charge should improve on that run and be very competitive here with Ryan Moore taking over in the plate.

SHE'S HOT was second over 5f at Kempton on debut in March and the Sioux Nation filly then finished mid-pack in the Albany at Royal Ascot in June on second start upped to 6f. She's bred to appreciate a longer trip and so, back in maiden company and upped in distance, has plenty going for her.

Zarga was third in a Kempton novice on debut last month over this trip and has scope for better for Sir Michael Stoute, while Newbury second Sparkling Beauty holds a similar profile.

Cracksman filly Miss Dynamic (Mark Johnston) joins Daydream Dancer (Ralph Beckett) and Chelsea Green (Hugo Palmer) as the newcomers well worth noting in the betting.

Selection: She's Hot

Next Best: Luckin Brew
