Racing Post experts give their advice for Goodwood and Galway

1 of 1


Rainbow Rebel
1.50 Goodwood, Tuesday

Mark Johnston has won Glorious Goodwood's traditional opener five times since 2006 and he normally goes mob-handed, so it is interesting that he only bothered to enter the progressive Rainbow Rebel this year. The winner of his last three, including the Old Newton Cup at Haydock, he looks sure to go close.Lil Rockerfeller
1.50 Goodwood, Wednesday

Hasn't run on the Flat for more than three years, but was rated 133 over hurdles the last time he did and he's rated 153 now (has been as high as 164). It doesn't take a genius to work out he could be thrown in off a mark of 82 over hurdles and connections must be bullish as Silvestre de Sousa has been booked.


Biddy The Boss
6.10 Galway, Wednesday

Gavin Cromwell's string is in excellent order and his bumper-winning mare Biddy The Boss can open her account over hurdles in handicap company on Wednesday. She did remarkably well to finish as close as she did on her penultimate start at Listowel when Ger Fox's irons broke and was too bad to be true last time at Downpatrick. She is attractively handicapped off 106.Madrid
5.15 Galway, Thursday

An opening mark of 70 appears to be extremely lenient for Aidan O'Brien's Madrid and he should take all the beating in Thursday's 55-70 handicap over 1m4f. An 11-8 favourite when two lengths behind the now 100-rated stablemate Family Tree at Gowran, he then got stuck in the mud at Tipperary in October when two lengths off Lucius Tiberius (now 105).


Cosmic Law
2.25 Goodwood, Tuesday

Cosmic Law has been crying out for a step up to 7f and he ran much better than his finishing position would suggest in the Coventry at Royal Ascot last time as he clearly did far too much in the early part of the race. His Woodcote winning form is the best on offer and there doesn't seem to be too many dangerous lurkers in the field.

Soldier's Call
3.00 Goodwood, Wednesday

The Windsor Castle is usually the worst of the 5f races for juveniles at Royal Ascot but this year it might have been the best and Soldier's Call can prove that point in the Molecomb Stakes.Always in the front rank, Soldier's Call had to do a lot of running a couple of furlongs out to catch those which were in front on the other side of the track and he was value for a lot more than the winning margin. Goodwood should suit him even better.
