Tuesday’s card kicks the action off and get ready for a huge run from MAGIC HURRICANE (1.55pm) who is going to enjoy a drop down in trip. He’s won at Kempton and Haydock and was third at the Lancashire course also on his last run and I’m sure a strongly run 1m 2f is what he wants. The James Fanshawe stable is in good form which is a boost for the selection.
The Group 3 Molecomb Stakes is a tough race to call, but Richard Hannon’s BEACON (2.30pm) really should be hard to beat off a rating of 107. He disappointed on the debut, but he’s improved with every race since and has a telling turn of foot.
The Hannon team have a decent chance of doubling up in the Lennox Stakes with TOORMORE (3.05pm)
He was a Group 1 winning juvenile and won the Craven Stakes and has a realistic chance to score this season after tackling the 2,000 Guineas and the St James’s Palace Stakes. This shorter 7f might be his perfect trip and stall six is a fair draw.
I’m going to stick with Luca Cumani’s HAVANA COOLER (3.40pm) in the hugely competitive Summer Stakes. I’ve followed this one over a cliff this season but a step up to 1m 6f could be exactly what he needs – and I’ll give him one last try.
I’ll be here all week and with four more days of Goodwood and the Galway Plate (Wed) and Galway Hurdle (Thurs) to come. It promises to be one hell of a few days – so be sure to join me and let’s get the Yeeehaaa’s flowing.
