Chris Pea Green has always looked like a horse that will come good in one of these handicaps. He has been a bit disappointing since some good novice runs, but of his current mark he should have a bit in hand if everything goes right for him. 20/1 looks a bit of value and I’ve had him in mind for this for a while.
Im also going with one more at a huge price. Dunravan Storm can be a classy animal if everything goes his way and I think he will really appreciate this fast 2miles. If he can get into a rhythm early near the front here he may be hard to pass. 50/1 is worth the risk.
1 Point EW 20/1 Chris Pea Green
1 Point EW 50/1 Dunravan Storm
Chris Pea Green was backed into 16/1 but got behind early made a bad mistake at the 9th and was pulled up. Dunraven storm didnt have the pace to go with them after looking to have a chance turning for home
Hawk Eye is certainly a good ground horse and has had very little runs on good ground since his win here in the Fred Winter and a good follow up at Aintree later that year. He has had only 1 run this year and hopefully has been readied for this of what looks a workable mark for a possibly improving 6yo.
I went for Montbazon 2 years ago in this an he ran a superb race with the exact same prep as this year. He will surly get involved again here and is of a lower mark this time.
1 Point EW Hawk Eye 33/1 5 Places Generally
1 Point EW Montbazon 28/1 5 places Generally
Montbazon fell early. Hawk Eye ran well to be nearest at the finish in 8th place. Thre is a decent race in him as he was way to far behind in this race early on.
Goodwood Mirage has been an eye-catcher for me a couple of times and he is in here of a decent mark now on good ground. He has had a light season but hopefully will have been prepared for the festival. He is a strong traveler and this trip and ground should suit him.
1 Point EW 33/1 5 places 365 4 places generally.
Never going well at all.
