Glorious Goodwood Day Two Tips


Race 1 - Coral Handicap Tips


This 12-furlong handicap tends to produce a very good quality winner, with six of the last ten winners clocking RPRs in excess of 106. It's also proven to be a very good race for punters, with only one winner in the last decade returning a price longer than 9/1.

The most progressive runner in this year's contest has to be AMLETO (9/4), who made a winning turf debut on soft ground at Chester's May Festival. William Haggas' gelding ran out an impressive winner that day, seeing off two future winners with apparent ease.

Amleto is a half-sibling to seven horses who reached a rating in the 100s and a full brother to former stablemate Sea Of Class - a dual-Oaks winner who placed second to Enable in an Arc. It won't be long before this gelding reaches a triple-figure mark.

Race 2 - Oak Tree Stakes Tips


There's plenty of depth to this year's Oaks Tree Stakes, as a wave of talented three-year-olds tackles a handful of proven older horses. I'm swaying towards the younger generation and it's MAGICAL SUNSET (16/1) who catches my eye at a tempting each-way price.

Having ended her juvenile campaign with a heavy ground romp at Newbury, Richard Hannon's filly was backed into favouritism for the Fred Darling Stakes on her reappearance. Magical Sunset ran like she needed the outing that day and has suffered four high-profile defeats over a variety of trips since. 

Magical Sunset looks best suited to seven furlongs and she'll be happier than most on testing ground. If David Egan can slot her in from a wide draw in stall 14, she's got every chance of hitting the frame.

Race 3 - Molecomb Stakes Tips


If KYLIAN (7/4) handles the soft ground - which he should do, considering his sire is versatile ground-wise and his dam was a Listed winner on soft - then the favourite should take plenty of beating in this Group Three.

Karl Burke's juvenile was my NAP of the day when he won the Dragon Stakes, where Ryan Moore endured a troubled passage through the race before eventually winning by an emphatic six lengths. Big Evs should provide some stiff competition, but if Kylian has improved again for that victory at Sandown, he should make it three wins on the bounce.

Race 5 - Alice Keppel Fillies' Conditions Stakes Tips


In a wide-open renewal of this conditions stakes, I'm going to have an each-way punt on MAKE IT EASY, who's taken a big stride forward with each of her runs this season.

Having placed fifth on debut, Jack Channon's filly flew home to finish second behind a subsequent winner at Windsor. Make It Easy then broke her duck with an impressive maiden win at Catterick, striding clear of the favourite in the closing stages to win by over two lengths. Mehmas' progeny deal with cut in the ground and she looks a resilient type. 12/1 is a nice price.

Race 6 - Fillies' Handicap Tips


Superpower owners Cheveley Park, Coolmore, Qatar Racing and The Royal Family all have runners in this fascinating contest. I'm going to pin my hopes on the lesser-known Valmont silks and back LA ISLA MUJERES (4/1), for the thoroughly in-form Ralph Beckett.

La Isla Mujeres destroyed several capable rivals on soft ground at Salisbury 18 days ago, powering clear over the final two furlongs to win by seven lengths. Following up won't be easy, after the handicapper slapped her with an 11-pound rating hike, but this daughter of Lope De Vega clearly has something about her.

Race 7 - World Pool Handicap Tips


In a typically open finale, I'll have a punt on the soft-ground-loving ISLA KAI (12/1), who's five turf victories have all come on juicy ground. 

Four defeats in Class 2 handicaps have helped Nigel Tinkler's five-year-old drop back down to a mark of 90, a rating he won off convincingly at Ripon back in April. Rowan Scott won't be unhappy with his draw in stall nine and I fancy Isla Kai will relish this slight drop down in distance.
