GOODWOOD RACES – JUICY BET
1:50 DUSKY LORD 7/2
For the most part, I can understand why FIVETHOUSANDTOONE is the favourite. The in-form jockey William Buick is taking the ride on this well-handicapped 5-year-old.
Nevertheless, while he’s dropped 18 pounds in the ratings, he’s not the heartiest of battlers. On top of that, he seems best over a bit further.
MANY A STAR won his last race over course and distance. However, he was all-out at the end, and that was on less testing ground than he will encounter here.
If we go back four races, Paul Cole’s 5-year-old won at Ascot under a 7-pound apprentice. He has then beaten off a revised mark of 89 and 87, before bouncing back to win off 85.
In summary, the handicapper raised him another two pounds, and he’s yet to prove he can handle such a high mark. Add to that, the ground is softer than ideal, and he prefers a bigger field.
With the hope of rekindling his spirit, ATLANTA’S BOY changed stables. The 7-year-old is now with Martin Smith, it’s just that on recent form he has no chance.
The easy ground won’t inconvenience INDIAN CREEK! Mick Channon’s 5-year-old won 5 of his 37 races, and he will handle the track.
Nevertheless, he’s never been able to cover 87, and his recent form isn’t good enough. In other words, for him to win, a few of the others will need to perform below par.
As for DUSKY LORD, at York, he resented first-time blinkers and ran accordingly. In fact, he missed the break and raced in the rear for the whole race.
Previously, at this course, the ten times raced 4-year-old was 2nd over 5 furlongs. That was a good effort, and he’s got more scope to improve.
To cut a long story short, the blinkers are off the selection and Jack Mitchell is taking over in the saddle. Other positives include returning to 6 furlongs and easier ground.
