2020 Glorious Goodwood Day One Tips

Race 1 - Fillies' Handicap Tips

ANGEL POWER got off the mark on the all-weather at Chelmsford on her return to action, beating future two-time winner Awards' Scheme by over two lengths. Last time out, Roger Varian's filly went down by just a neck in a Class 3 at Haydock. She's up five-pounds for that defeat, but still looks well handicapped running off 90.

Race 2 - Unibet Handicap Tips

This looks a really difficult handicap to try and unravel, with many holding appeal at their current prices. One who still seems relatively unexposed is DEREVO, and you can see why Sir Michael Stoute's four-year-old is sitting so prominently in the betting.

Derevo has been beaten on his last two starts, but ran well at Doncaster on his reappearance, where he tired a little late on and was headed by Fifth Position. This son of Dansili clocked RPRs in excess of 100 in two handicaps on turning tracks last season, and Ryan Moore should be able to slot into a nice position from stall 18.

Race 3 - Vintage Stakes Tips

A always like to side with a horse on an upward trajectory in juvenile races like this. So, while Devious Company looks a hardy youngster to be feared, I'm going to place all my eggs in BATTLEGROUND'S basket.

Having been given an educational ride on debut, Aidan O'Brien's youngster improved massively to win the Chesham Stakes at Ascot. The first foal out of top-mare Found, and O'Brien won the Vintage Stakes with another War Front colt in War Decree in 2016. I'm expecting Battleground to take this step up in class in his stride, and he should be very hard to beat.

Race 4 - Lennox Stakes Tips

Sir Dancealot2:45pm Goodwood Qatar Lennox Stakes (Group 2) 7fGET 13/2 HERE

What a cracking renewal of this Group Two we have to look forward to, where Space Blues and Safe Voyage head the betting. Duke Of Hazzard comes here instead of the Sussex Stakes, and boasts plenty of course form, having won twice in pattern races here last season.

The clear value bet in the race, however, has to be SIR DANCEALOT, who goes for a hat-trick of Lennox Stakes wins. David Elsworth's charge was my NAP of the day in this race 12 months ago, and successfully defended his crown by picking off Hey Gaman late on.

Gerald Mosse's mount has run reasonably well on both his starts this term, and returns to Goodwood a little under the radar. He should be able to grab a nice spot on the rail from stall three, and has every chance of winning this race for the third year in a row.

Race 6 - Qatar Handicap Tips

Celsius3:45pm Qatar Handicap (Class 2) 5fGET 4/1 HERE
18+ only. Gambling can be addictive. Play responsibly.

There's tons of pace on in this handicap, with most of it drawn on the stands' side of the track. One who will look to strike late from off the pace is CELSIUS, and it's Tom Clover's four-year-old who holds most appeal for me.

Celsius came from the rear to win the three-year-old Tatler Handicap at this meeting over course-and-distance last year. Andrea Atzeni's mount beat favourite Acclaim The Nation on his return to action at Haydock, and ran well on soft ground which didn't suit last time out. 

Race 7 - Maiden Stakes Tips

Sheikh Hamdan his three juveniles entered up in this maiden, and ALKUMAIT looks to be the one to side with. Marcus Tregoning's youngster made eye-catching late progress to finish fourth on debut at Newbury nine days ago, and Jim Crowley has chosen to ride him over the newcomers.

Race 8 - Fillies' Handicap Tips

TULIP FIELDS was last seen finishing third in a good Listed race up at Hamilton. Mark Johnston's filly beat a future winner here on her reappearance in June, before scoring by three lengths on her one and only start over this trip. Her weight-for-age allowance means she'll carry just 9-7 on her back, and I'm expecting Mark Johnston's filly to be very hard to beat.
