Friday's free racing tips: five selections from Glorious Goodwood and Galway
Friday's best bets ranked in order of confidence by our top tipsters
Magical Morning(3.00 Goodwood)
Imposing sort who posted best effort when winning at Sandown last time. Well treated under penalty (2lb higher in future) and he has strong claims.
Path Of Thunder(3.00 Goodwood)
Dipped inside standard time when storming home at Newmarket three weeks ago and can make short work of his penalty.
Useful Flat performer who has some decent efforts over hurdles on his record and should soon be capable of breaking his duck over obstacles. His last two runs have been disappointing, but the testing ground probably wouldn't have suited and he could return to form on this better surface.
Smart Champion(1.50 Goodwood)
Temptingly handicapped off a 6lb lower mark than when finishing a close third in this race last year, with Saffie Osborne's 5lb claim on top today. Shaped well over two miles here on his penultimate start and looks primed for a big run.
A bit in and out this season but capable on his day as shown with an excellentthird in the Lincoln earlier this season. A course and distance winner last September, has a good draw and with a decent claimer taking 5lb off his back, he could go well.
