Take Cover! Speedy veteran can bounce back in King George

Goodwood specialist Take Cover can return to form
1 of 1

Newmarket:Anthony Burke

Mirage Dancer(1.50 Goodwood, nap)

Won over course and distance in May and his recent second in the Princess Of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket is arguably the best form on offer. If he repeat that sort of effort he will be hard to beat with conditions certain to suit.

North:Colin Russell

Take Cover(3.35 Goodwood, nap)

This admirable veteran hasn't been quite at his best this season but he has a fine record in this race, which has been his target all season, and he's fancied to bounce back providing the rain stays away.

Hors De Combat(3.00 Goodwood, nap)

Seven-year-old needs things to fall right, but has some decent form at this track and should adore the quick ground.

Racing Post Ratings:Sam Walker

Pretty Baby(4.40 Goodwood)

Cosy winner of a Listed race at Nottingham on penultimate start and ran like step up to 7f might suit when beaten a short head at Group 3 level last time.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Leading Spirit(4.10 Goodwood)

Clocked the fastest time of three races over 6f at Newbury eight days ago and Charlie Appleby's improving youngster can strike again while the iron is still hot.

Longshot: David Revers

Shady McCoy(3.00 Goodwood)

The Ian Williams-trained gelding often saves his best for this venue, having won twice here previously, and has been running into form this term. He should be competitive at a double-figure price.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Limini(6.50 Galway)

Runner-up in the 2m amateur riders handicap over the course on Monday when returning from a long absence, the Willie Mullins-trained mare turns out again in tonight's feature event. The drop to1m4f should not inconvenience her and she can deliver.

Leading Spirit(4.10 Goodwood)

Charlie Appleby is nine from 27 with his two-year-old runners at Goodwood since 2015 (33 per cent strike-rate; +£8.38 to £1 stakes), improving to two from three in nurseries. Leading Spirit runs in the 6f event at 4.10, which the stable also won two seasons ago.
