Another very strong day for the column yesterday, with two winners in the form of Flight Risk and Wiretrap (8/1). Here’s hoping for the same today!
Tip 1 Rhythmic Intent - 4.50 Sandown
Rhythm intent has shown loads of promise in his novice races so far and can prove well in off his handicap mark given his subsequent form. He finished behind Surfman twice as a two year old before finishing 5L behind Space Blues on his first start at three.
Space Blues has since come out and won twice, including a listed race so running off 77 could be very lenient. Williams does well at Sandown and the step up in trip on handicap debut will suit even more.
Tip 2 Agueliga - 5.20 Cork
Paddy Twomey is having a fantastic season especially with his two year olds and this should be another winning one today. On debut Agueliga was well backed but missed the break and after travelling well into the race, encountered traffic problems.
I think she would have won but for being hampered and this doesn't look a strong maiden. In fact, one of the horses behind her that day has takes her on again here as well as the horse that finished a nose ahead. However, with that run under her belt she should improve and win with a clearer run.
Tip 3 Peach Tree (NAP) - 6.55 Cork
Aiden O'Brien has won this race four times in the last five years and three of those have been with improving 3-year-olds. Most had ran in the Oaks and took this as a slight easier race before going on to better things.
Peach Tree wasn't beaten miles in the Epsom Oaks and this is a much easier task. She has been beaten previously by Who's Steph however she was having her first run of the season that day and it's a different trip today. Peach Tree is entered in the Ribblesdale, Irish Oaks and Pretty Polly stakes so ought to be winning this before running in those types of races.
Tip 4 Mugatoo - 7.10 Goodwood
David Simcock and Jamie Spencer teamed to land a double at Yarmouth yesterday and have a brilliant chance here with Mugatoo. After showing loads of promise as a two year old he was thrown up to 1m7f on his handicap debut and he duly bolted up.
Jamie Spencer was motionless as he coasted to the lead without so much as a movement from the jockey. He's been given a 10lb rise but he's also been bought by Australian Bloodstock which would suggests Melbourne is a plan somewhere along the line. He would have to win this today to stand a chance of getting into the bigger handicaps.
Tip 5 White Chocolate - 7.40 Goodwood
Another for the combination of Simcock and Spencer who landed a double yesterday and are clearly in fine form. White Chocolate won on this card in 2017 and has also been beaten a head at Goodwood so has smart course form.
Last season she ran in some top class handicaps and even tried in listed company. She ended the season in a very competitive class 2 against the boys when running well and will have needed her reappearance run. She was 4th and split two of today's rivals but it was her first run for some time so she'll improve a lot like most of Simcocks do.
