Glorious Goodwood 2020 (Stewards’ Cup Day)

Due to Virgin Media leaving us unplugged for two days after they performed maintenance in a local street cabinet, this blog had it’s biggest non-publishing gap in over ten years. Even my back up plan was foiled as my local library is closed due to Covid restrictions. Bugger! I pride myself on posting this blog 365-days a year but can you expect anything less from 2020? Will life ever be the same again?

Glorious Goodwood (Sat)

It’s been a pretty amazing week but pretty demanding on the old brains cells this week trying to juggle a Galway contribution (on JP Festival) whilst trying to do myself justice here with my Goodwood interests. That combined with my own punting and you find two concurrent Festivals doesn’t half leave you feeling mentally drained. I’d like to feel that I’ve done a pretty reasonable job?

It was always going to be difficult to emulate Thursday but Friday I got off to a flyer once again when Forgotten Voice (J P Murtagh, 3/1) won the opening race. What is it about first race winners of late? I must check out the success rate but I’m sure it’s pretty high at present. Swiss Spirit (William Buick, 6/1) was slightly unfortunate not to win but to be fair Buick caused his own share of interference too in that race.


Is Camilla the key to Forgotten Voice’s success?

Glorious Goodwood & Galway Festival 2012 (Sat)

Today is almost the culminating day of two great racing festivals which have brought us some fantastic racing throughout the week. This was certainly a week of thrills and spills. The mighty Frankel being one highlight but one lowlight being Ruby Walsh’s broken ankle. We wish him a speedy recovery!

2.05 Good- Jarrow & Louis The Pious (e/w).

2.40 Good- A Boy Named Suzi & Life & Soul (e/w).

3.15 Good- Was (e/w).

Hopefully marching off to the payout counter later! 😉

Glorious Goodwood (last day)

A great week it’s been with some lovely booms along the way with hopefully one or two more today. I hope you’ve been doing ok too?

I was lucky enough to win a 12 player (£5 per entry) competition on the Bodugi website yesterday at Thirsk. Three out of six winners with the highlight being Hotham (15/2) which won me the first price of £31.68 🙂 Going into today I’m placed 3rd in the Racecaller festival competition and 14th (need to be top 10) in the Racing UK Festival competition. Despite winning £5 midweek I think I’m a little too far off the pace in the Telegraph/RUK/Bodugi £1000 competition, but you never know…a 33/1 might just do it 😀

Today I’m focusing purely on the Goodwood card. The Galway card is a little scrappy and the feature race has runners that have already raced once this week so it’s a nightmare for a guesser like me (did woefully there last night).

2.05 Good- Mymumsayimthebest, Thunderball & Valery Borzov (e/w).

2.35 Good- Activate & Sabotage (e/w).

3.10 Good- Midday (win).

3.45 Good- Nasri, Macs Power & Victoire De Lyphar (e/w).

4.20 Good- Eurystheus & Nawwaar (e/w).

4.55 Good- Apostle & Indepub (e/w).

5.35 Good- Diescentric & Kathleen Frances (e/w).

Hoping for a beast of a day! 😉
