Beatable Bayside is our lay

THE marathon Goodwood Handicap (1.50), which kicks off today’s penultimat­e day at Goodwood, looks wide-open, with loads of the field having legitimate claims.

The one we like the look of is Super Superjack who has been running very consistent­ly for some time and should be fine over this extended trip.

The Thoroughbr­ed Stakes (2.25) looks quite trappy, but the one we think we can get beat is Bayside Boy and we’ll be keen to lay him.

Punters will be grateful we’re offering seven places on the Golden Mile (3.00) because it looks a difficult puzzle to solve.

William Buick (above) can do no wrong at the moment, so his mount Noble Dynasty has to be respected. However, the two we’re siding with are Blue For You and Rebel Territory.

We’ve seen some short-priced favourites in the King George Stakes (3.35), but this year’s renewal looks very competitiv­e and fits perfectly with our Top Price Guarantee concession. The prices look about right with Mitbaahy and Raasel worthy of their places at the head of affairs.

Rebel’s Romance looks banker material in the Glorious Stakes (4.10) and we expect him to give the Buick and Charlie Appleby pairing yet another winner, while the six-furlong nursery looks wide-open.

The first two days went pretty well, but day three was not so good with a string of winning favourites really bringing the punters back into it.

We were marginally ahead after two rounds, but the punters have fought back and given us a bloody nose.
