Muthmir Was backed into a more sensible price and duly obliged for us yesterday, making 3 winners in the week which isn’t bad at all.
Stewards Cup Goodwood
An early one for this is Ninjago. He seems an obvious pick when he was 5th and 2nd in this the last 2 years and also was a good 3rd this year in his other run around here. He obviously likes it here and as a 5yo should have some improvement in him this year. Im assuming that this is the aim all year and at 2lbs lower than last years 2nd, he is clearly capable of getting competitive. 25/1 is a lot bigger than I was expecting and cant last so id be getting on now.
1 Point EW 25/1 5 places Betfred (now 25/1 with Totesport) (22/1 365 5 places)
I’m also going to go with Jack Dexter here. It was all low drawn horses in the consolation race and I think he has been performing well this year in top races. He is very likely to strike soon enough and 33/1 looks great value.

Go far looks to be on a good mark , and gradually improving to a performance. He looks a nice bit of value and if he continues his progression 40/1 is going to look very big . In addition. I can let Hoof it go without a bet at 50/1 just in case he has been prepared with today in mind .

I waited a long time to see Western Boy actually try in the Galway Hurdle but unfortunately he both didn’t get in and ruined his price with a good flat win a couple of weeks ago. He ran a great race in possibly the best novice hurdle in the last 20 years, behind Vautour when despite going far too wide he still finished well enough. I’ve been expecting him to pop up at some stage and hopefully today is the day. He is only 12/1 and unfortunately is around the complete lottery of Galway but still I’ll have to have a bet.
1 Point win 12/1 Generally
