Glorious Goodwood 2014 Tuesday 1:55

Tommorrow is the opening of Glorious Goodwood, and we've picked out a couple of races to have a look at.

The subject of this post is the 1:55 Goodwood Stakes, and there's certainly a tantalising lineup to choose from.

There are a number of horses in contention for the win, but currently edging ahead (at the bookies at least) is Stomachion.

He showed excellent form in May over 1m 2f at Newmarket, and backed that up with a decent second over 1m 4f at Epsom on Derby day.

This is a slightly shorter trip than he's used to but provided the ground suits and the running is fast - and it looks like both of those will be the case - then he's a firm contender for the race win.

He's creeping in to 11/2 at most bookies but if you head over to Paddy Power you can still pick him up at a fractionally better 6/1.

It's hard to say where the other contenders will lie in a large field, but we think Sea Shanty is likely to be running at the front.

He ran strongly in the Royal Hunt Cup despite eventually finishing fourth, but his two races before that were victories over a mile each.

There is definite potential for improvement, and this slight stretch in length might be what it takes to bring more out of him.

His one previous attempt at this distance saw him finish in the midpack, but we're convinced he'll be pushing for the lead this time round.

He's as short as 13/2 in some places, but if you head over to Ladbrokes you can get him at a very tempting 9/1.

Finally, our long shot for the race is Charles Camoin.

His form looks unimpressive but he showed an excellent turn of it at Ascot two starts ago.

The ground may not have helped him last time out, and we're thinking he might put himself further forward than expected tomorrow.

He's an elder statesman in this field, but he's low in the weights and running off a decent mark so we find SkyBet's offer of 25/1 very tempting indeed.

Even more so since they're offering each way odds on the first five places in this race. Why not take advantage?

Saturday Racing Preview - Ascot King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes

The most eagerly anticipated race of the weekend has got to be the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Setting off at 3:50 it is the highlight of Ascot on Saturday afternoon.

Furthermore there are some great antepost odds already available, so let's get stuck in before they start to shorten!

Current favourite, whose odds are slowly shortening already, is Telescope.

If he takes the victory then his trainer, Sir Michael Stoute, will take the overall lead for the most winners of the King George Stakes with six, and we can certainly see it happening.

He took an excellent victory last time out, in the Hardwicke Stakes at this course last month.

Furthermore he has an excellent record, with a 50% win rate and never finishing outside the top three.
Favourites tend to do well in this race, and we don't think Telescope will be any exception.

With that in mind our advice would be to take a trip over to Boyle Sports, who will give you a decent 9/4.

Telescope's main challenger has got to be our personal favourite Taghrooda.

If we're talking staggering records then she really has set the bar, winning every one of her three starts so far including her last trip out over a little race called the Oaks.

The only thing that worries us is her age - statistically only one in the last ten winners has been as young as her.

But let's face it, how many other three year olds of her apparent calibre have raced here in the last ten years?

Her prices are slowly coming in but you can still pick her up at 11/4 at TotePool, and we recommend you do!

Finally, if we were going to pick one horse other than the two we've named, we'd settle on Flintshire.

His form has been mixed of late, but this race will be over the fast ground he really favours and yet somehow rarely seems to run on.

If anything can give him a boost that will, and we fancy him to show well in Saturday's race.

He's out of favour at the moment, which means a trip to SkyBet will let you pick him up at a very decent 12/1.
