Glorious Goodwood 2014 Wednesday

We're spoiled for choice on the second day of Goodwood, and we struggled to decide which race we thought offered the best value for money.

In the end we decided to simply pick out the three horses we thought were the best price across the day.

First up, running in the 14:30 Neptune Investment Management Gordon Stakes, we like the look of Somewhat.

He ran as the pacemaker in the Eclipse, and arguably was given a little too much leeway by the favourites.

Nonetheless you can't deny that he came in third, just three lengths behind Mukhadram, and showed that on his day he could be a contender.

He's in great form right now and awaiting his breakthrough moment, and at 7/2 at BoyleSports we fancy him to confirm his abilities at Goodwood tomorrow.

We were hard pressed to choose a horse from the 15:40 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.

Dr No has shown decent form and some improvement lately, and is not far off becoming a quality runner.

However, we're not sure he's going to complete the transformation at Goodwood this week.

With that in mind, our eyes turned to Ahlan Emarati, whose recent form is very good and who will enjoy the run out over a longer distance.

At 5/1 over at Coral, he's a very tempting price and might pay dividends.

Finally, in the 16:50 EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Fillies' Handicap, it's hard to look past the favourite, Water Hole.

She took victory at Doncaster last month in her first run of the year, and there's still plenty more potential in her.

She's slowly dropping below 3/1, but if you head to Paddy Power you can still catch her at a slightly better 10/3.

Glorious Goodwood 2014 Tuesday 3:40

The second race we've picked out for your consideration on the first day of Goodwood is the 3:40 bet365 Summer Handicap.

It's another with a strong field and not much seperating the favourites.

Currently heading up the bunch at the bookies is Havana Cooler, racing over 1m 6f for only the second time.

He won his first two starts, back in 2013, but has not won since despite running well throughout.

He was beaten in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock last time out, but not by much, and this second trip over this distance may well show some improvement given how lightly raced he is.

We still think he's priced a little short for this one, given his record, but the best odds we found were over at William Hill, who are offering a fairly reasonable 9/2.

His closest contender tomorrow according to the bookies is Dashing Star, and we can see why he's being backed so well.

He finished ahead of Havana Cooler in the Old Newton Cup, and has shown strongly over 1m 4f in three handicaps this year.

He has shown in the past that he stays well over this distance, and although his mark is probably edging a little higher than we would like, he's certain to run well.

Whether you think he'll be leading across the line we couldn't say, but we think he'll be a strong contender tomorrow.

Boyle Sports are currenly offering a very decent 6/1 on him to take the win.

Finally our long shot of the day goes to Big Thunder.

He has previously shown himself to be an incredibly useful horse over handicaps of this sort of length, winning five times after he started running them as a three year old.

However, his first run out this season was far from impressive and he did not look like a horse at his peak.

His stable have lagged behind a little this year and it's hard to predict how far they might have come on over the last few weeks.

We'd be the first to admit this one could go either way, but at 12/1 at Ladbrokes we think Big Thunder is well worth a punt to return to previous form.
