Communique can give Johnston another Goodwood winner

1 of 1

Newmarket:Anthony Burke

Arigato(8.00 Epsom)

Looked as good as ever when scoring in decisive fashion last week at Sandown. He returns here under the obligatory penalty but the manner of his recent victory suggests that he may still be a step ahead of his current mark.

Others to follow
Goodwood 1.50 Maverick Officer, 2.25 God Given, 3.00 Sporting Chance, 3.35 Veracious, 4.10 Revich, 4.45 Deira Surprise, 5.20 Cowboy Soldier.
Nottingham 2.10 Poetry, 2.45 James Street, 3.20 Minovia, 3.55 Gift Of Raaj, 4.30 Thunder Speed, 5.05 King Crimson, 5.35 Praeceps.
Epsom 6.20 Against The Odds, 7.30 Dance Teacher, 8.30 Billie Beane.
Ffos Las 6.40 Loveisili.

North:Colin Russell

Communique(1.50 Goodwood, nap)

Gained his second win of the season and put up a career-best performance when winning at Newmarket last time. Further improvement on the cards and from a favourable draw, he is fancied to give another good account.

Others to follow
Epsom 6.20 Clemento, 6.55 Royal Big Night.
Goodwood 3.00 Marie's Diamond, 4.10 More Than This, 4.45 Accordance, 5.20 Porchy Party.
Nottingham 2.10 War Tigress, 3.20 Bin Makfi, 3.55 Whitkirk, 4.30 Save The Bees, 5.05 Tallinski.
Stratford 3.10 Gran Maestro, 3.45 King Golan, 4.20 Grow Nasa Grow, 4.55 Dyna Might.

Lambourn: James Burn

Isaan Queen(6.05 Ffos Las, nap)

Lowther entry won nicely on her debut at Lingfield and trainer Archie Watson, who is having a good time with his juveniles, has had this race in mind since. She should be up to defying a penalty.

Others to follow
Epsom 6.20 Never Surrender, 6.55 Mendoza.
Ffos Las 5.30 Devils Roc, 7.15 Eraad.
Goodwood 1.50 Al Jellaby, 2.25 Isabel De Urbina, 3.00 Konchek, 3.35 Wilamina, 4.10 No More Regrets, 4.45 Incharge, 5.20 Kick On Kick On.
Nottingham 2.45 Qutob, 3.55 Seaborough, 5.05 Jashma, 5.35 Bailarico.
Stratford 2.35 No Hiding Place, 3.10 Regulation, 3.45 Next Level.

West Country:Tim Mitchell

Sweet Pursuit(7.15 Ffos Las, nap)

Course-and-distance winner nine days ago and has the burden of a 6lb penalty. However, Finley Marsh offsets the majority of that and, with her confidence on a high, she is fancied to follow up.

Others to follow
Epsom 7.30 Nightingale Valley.
Ffos Las 6.05 Sufficient, 8.45 Compton Abbey.
Goodwood 2.25 Dance The Dream.
Stratford 2.00 Let's Sway, 2.35 Braavos.

Racing Post Ratings: Paul Curtis

Rhododendron(3.35 Goodwood)

Has a clear edge over these rivals on her best form and can be forgiven a rare off-day at Royal Ascot last time.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Billesdon Brook(3.35 Goodwood)

Surprise 1,000 Guineas winner but disappointed at Royal Ascot. Steps up to1m2f here and should be given a chance to confirm that her Classic success wasn't a fluke.

Longshot: Samuel King

Cartwright(4.35 Galway)

A recent run on the Flat at Fairyhouse should have put Gordon Elliott's runner spot on for this year's Galway Hurdle. First-time blinkers could spark some improvement and he can be expected to go well in a wide-open race.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Yulong Gold Fairy(3.25 Galway)

A winner over this course and distance at the meeting a year ago, the Dermot Weld-trained filly is well suited by soft ground and makes plenty of appeal fromstall one in this Listed event. Fifth in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, she has plenty going for her.

The Raceform Interactive nugget

The last three winners of the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood were all three-year-old fillies, who had won the Qipco 1,000 Guineas earlier in the season. Richard Hannon'sBillesdon Brook bids to make it four a row at 3.35.
