Horse Racing Tips Today – Friday 2nd August 2019 at Goodwood
1.50 at Goodwood – Angel’s Hideaway to win at 8/1
Friday is arguably the strongest day of racing of Glorious Goodwood and the Oak Tree Stakes is a fitting start. This Group 3 takes place over 7f and includes some high class fillies and mares including the winner of last year’s 1000 Guineas, Billesdon Brook.
Richard Hannon’s four-year-old has failed to kick on after her shock win at Newmarket and is a 14/1 shot for this contest. A much better option could be Angel’s Hideaway at 8/1 with bet365. She’s improved over the course of the season which is a very good sign for any three-year-old and looks ready for her best performance and result yet.
2.25 at Goodwood – Biometric to win at 13/2
There’s another Group 3 up next. Open only to three-year-olds, the Thoroughbred Stakes takes place over a mile and is a chance for those who haven’t quite kicked on in the earlier stages of their career to get an important win under their belts.
The betting market suggests this is going to be a close run thing with Duke Of Hazard, Turgenev, Art Du Val and Biometric all available at odds of 15/2 or shorter. It’s the latter of those who makes the most appeal. After not running as a two-year-old, Biometric wasted no time picking up wins as a three-year-old and looks ready to take another step forward by winning the Thoroughbred Stakes at 13/2 with Coral.
3.00 at Goodwood – Clon Coulis each way at 16/1
The Unibet Golden Mile is one of those races that connections mark down at the start of the season as a potential target for their horses. Winning this race brings a cheque of £93,375 but it’s tough enough just to get a place in the field. Past winners have tended to come from the upper section of the market but this is a race that can throw up the odd surprise.
Whether Clon Coulis has what it takes to get the most fancied horses for the Golden Mile beaten remains to be seen. There is no doubt, however, that David Barron’s five-year-old is good enough to be in the mix come the closing stages. She has dealt with big fields and the buzz of a big meeting very well in the past and looks well treated by the handicapper so must represent each way value at 16/1 with BetVictor.
3.35 at Goodwood – Copper Knight each way at 25/1
The rewards for correctly predicting the winner of the King George Stakes given that the best price available on Battaash is the 1/3 that bet365 are quoting. Charlie Hills is bullish about the chances of his five-year-old making it a hat-trick of wins in this race and very few people disagree. His relatively small stature for a sprinter helps him cope with the track at Goodwood and, for some reason, the nerves you usually see from him are not problematic in West Sussex.
Those looking to take a little more of a risk from the King George Stakes should consider either ignoring the favourite or complementing a bet on him with an each way play on Copper Knight. He is a real battler of a sprinter who regularly grinds out places in handicaps and can do likewise in this Group 2.
