Alan Thomson’s Tips: A Crystal clear chance to grab first win

goodwood

CRYSTAL KING (8.50) has been found a fine opportunity to lose his maiden tag at Goodwood this evening.

The son of Frankel has proved disappointing but his sixth to Burgonet at Newmarket last may probably sets the standard in this 1m 3f event. Runner-up Stylehunter came out to stroll home by six lengths at Lingfield.

SKY EAGLE (7.05) ran third to Reverend Jacobs and Zeelander at York having been raised 6lb for an earlier success at Wolverhampton. This step up to 1m 6f may eke out a little more improvement.

BRAEMAR (4.10) is my sole bet at Brighton, although you never know how a horse will handle its unique undulations.

Sir Michael Stoute’s three-year-old has finished runner-up on his last three starts but there was nothing wrong with his close-up defeat at the hands of Arthenia at Catterick. Braemar can give weight to Sir Mark Prescott’s favourite Altra Vita, up 6lb for last week’s hard-fought Bath success.

ANGELS (3.00) has been an early-season money-spinner for her connections and will be hard to beat at Carlisle as long as she handles this quicker ground.

A similar remark regarding the quicker terrain applies to I’M IMPROVING (4.00) as he handled soft ground so well last autumn when trouncing Sea Youmzain at Redcar. He didn’t appear to be concentrating totally on the job at Wetherby last time, hence the application of a hood, and Keith Dalgleish has saddled a couple of winners recently after a quiet spell.

RAVENHOE (6.15) goes well for young apprentice Oliver Stammers and a repeat of his Goodwood third to Pretty Jewel gives him every chance in the opener at Haydock.

    Just had a bet in running on the Tennis on Marco Cecchinato at 22/1 coral to beat Dominik Thiem, Thiem is 2-0 up in sets but at 22/1 Cecchinato worth a bet

          It’s full at the moment, we were going to start a new syndicate but the interest from Britain was poor, we got about 30 people interested which was poor so we decided to concentrate on America & Australia and sell our shares in horses in Britain but we may try again at some point.

    Today’s NAP was really unlucky, bumped at the start by the winner which meant Navarra Princess lost her place and ended up at the back, the ground she made up late on was pretty impressive to only get beat half a length, with a little luck at the start she would have won easily but that’s racing

              Have you looked at haydock tomorrow DC, or anyone for that matter ?.
              I’m going for a spin down the north wales coast for some live action.
              Nice size fields for a Saturday, none of those 15+ runner bookies benefit handicaps, probably the hard ground put some off.
              Cheers.
