Oddschecker tips for every race at Goodwood on Wednesday.
Nkosikazi won impressively in a Group 3 at Newcastle last time but she may prove vulnerable giving 11lb and upwards to her rivals, particularly to the unexposed three-year-olds in the line-up. The vote goes to CHAMADE, whose third at Newbury last month couldn't have worked out any better and the switch to handicap company for the first time makes her of considerable interest. Sandringham runner-up Waliyak and Musidora fifth Lake Lucerne are both open to further progression too.Prediction : 1st Chamade 2nd Waliyak 3rd Lake Lucerne
In a wide-open contest, marginal preference is for SMART CHAMPION, whose most recent outing in the Northumberland Plate can be forgiven as that race favoured those who were close to the pace. Prior to that, the five-year-old was a fast-finishing fourth to Coeur de Lion in the Ascot Stakes and he could turn that form around on better terms. Summer Moon and Rochester House are closely matched with the selection based on their running at the Royal meeting and it would be no surprise to see both go well. Others to note are Blue Laureate, The Grand Visir and True Destiny. Prediction : 1st Smart Champion 2nd Coeur de Lion 3rd Rochester House
A competitive affair which could go to the progressive MAMBO NIGHTS, who relished the step up to this distance when making it back-to-back victories on his handicap debut at Ripon. A Star Above is another hat-trick seeker to consider for the in-form yard of William Haggas, with Carlos Felix also of note following his eyecatching Ascot success. Mark Johnston has a great record in this and saddles Italian Derby second King's Caper and Glenties, who opened his account at Windsor latest, having shaped nicely over C&D earlier this summer. Encipher is interesting on his handicap bow having taken in the Dante last time, while any ease in the ground would make dual winner Win O'Clock a big player.Prediction : 1st Mambo Nights 2nd A Star Above 3rd Glenties
Significantly has gone close in each of his three starts to date and warrants plenty of respect representing Karl Burke, who won this race in 2017 with Havana Grey, but SARDINIA SUNSET could prove tough to beat in receipt of 3lb. She was a place in front of subsequent Super Sprint winner Happy Romance when fourth in the Queen Mary and justified skinny odds when landing a Listed contest at York last time. She looks rock-solid and will give this a big shake. Internationaldream might go well at longer odds. Prediction : 1st Sardinia Sunset 2nd Significantly 3rd Internationaldream
This looks the best race of the season so far. 2000 Guineas winner Kameko (who had Wichita back in second that day) was ridden to get the trip when fourth in the Derby but, like most of the field, couldn't land a blow on Serpentine after the Ballydoyle front runner slipped the field. His finishing effort at Epsom suggested he didn't fully stay the distance, though, and the drop back to a mile appears a sensible step. However, having overcome a torrid trip to land the Irish 2,000 Guineas from Vatican City at the Curragh, exciting Ger Lyons representative SISKIN is taken to have his measure. Mohaather posted a career-best effort when landing the Summer Mile from San Donato at Ascot but conceding 8lb weight-for-age to the Classic winners will be no easy task.Prediction : 1st Siskin 2nd Kameko 3rd Mohaather
SPRIGHT proved that her 50/1 debut second at Doncaster was no fluke when going one better in impressive fashion at York. That marked her out as potentially a Pattern performer, and she can take the next step up the ladder. Miss Jingles also has a bright future, judging by the way she knuckled down to justify favouritism at Sandown. Furlong Factor was just ahead of Country Carnival and Pelekai when runner-up in the Listed Marygate Stakes, but has struggled in the National Stakes since.Prediction : 1st Spright 2nd Miss Jingles 3rd Furlong Factor
TORO STRIKE caught the eye when finishing fifth on his seasonal return in the Britannia at Royal Ascot last month and that performance suggested that he should have no problems stepping back in trip. Richard Fahey's colt was only beaten a length in a nursery over C&D last year and he is clearly on a workable mark. Arigato was far from disgraced in the Bunbury Cup and he is an obvious threat to the selection. Others to consider are Mountain Brave, Society Lion and Zhui Feng. Prediction : 1st Toro Strike 2nd Arigato 3rd Society Lion
