Tom Stanley's thoughts on Day three at Goodwood.
Tempted to leave the Nursery alone given the amount of could-be-anythings in there but Lady In Question is worth a play at the prices. She went off 2nd best fancied of the Fahey 7 in the Super Sprint but was the wrong side and didn’t seem to appreciate the drop to 5 furlongs. She looked to want every bit of the 6 on debut and should have a fair bit more to offer upped in trip. Her debut win may not be the strongest form but I like she did it first up and Fahey will have run her at Newbury thinking she’s pretty high class. A mark of 78 could well be within her. I’m slightly worried about the draw in 2 because, with plenty of pace on, getting caught on the rail is a live possibility and darting up the inside didn’t pay dividends yesterday but that’s Goodwood.
Last up is Laughton, though his price is a touch disappointing. His trainer has a good record in this race and he picked out this horse as one to keep on the right side of at the start of the season. He took a while to get going but the way he won at Redcar suggested there was plenty more to come. The extra half furlong and tough winner found him out at Doncaster and Chester found him out last time but I still think this horse has plenty in hand. A fast run 5 will really suit him here, he’s well drawn to get cover and come late and he should go very close. Another worth a go is A Momentofmadness who was too keen up to 6 last time and should really appreciate the return to the minimum. He does race a little with the choke out and it’s easy to see why they reached for the hood but he’s still lightly raced in the headgear and this flying 5 should really suit him.
