2.25 Goodwood - Gubbass

The Hannon team has an excellent record in the Unibet Richmond Stakes and can add to the tally with Gubbass.

Between them Richard Hannon senior and junior have saddled seven previous winners, with Mehmas being the most recent five years ago.

Gubbass made a smart start to his career when justifying favouritism at Leicester in the spring, marking him down as a potential Royal Ascot candidate.

He ultimately missed out on an appearance at the summer showpiece meeting, but gained plenty compensation by providing the Hannons with an 11th success in the lucrative Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury a couple of weeks ago.

That has already been boosted by the third home Delmona, who was beaten narrowly in a Group Three at Ascot last week.

Gubbass is open to further improvement, and the prospect of stepping up from five to six furlongs should not hold any fears.

3.00 Goodwood - Third Realm

Third Realm has obvious claims in the John Pearce Racing Gordon Stakes, and we can see why.

Roger Varian's charge beat Derby and King George hero Adayar on soft ground at Lingfield in May, but the tables were turned at Epsom, with Third Realm finishing an honourable fifth.

He did well to finish as close as he did, as he looked likely to be out with the washing at one stage.

The Derby form has been well advertised by not only the winner but also his stablemate Hurricane Lane, who has won the Irish Derby and the Grand Prix de Paris since finishing third in the premier Classic.

It is considered a good move by Varian that he has given Third Realm plenty of time to recover from his Derby effort, and it may pay off with a Group Three success on Thursday.

3.35 Goodwood - Lady Bowthorpe

Lady Bowthorpe can provide William Jarvis with a first Group One triumph in almost 30 years in the Qatar Nassau Stakes.

Having progressed from handicap company to Pattern class last season, Lady Bowthorpe has taken her game to another level in 2021, with a comeback victory in the Group Two Dahlia Stakes over nine furlongs followed by three excellent efforts over a mile.

The daughter of Nathaniel found Palace Pier too strong in the Lockinge at Newbury in May. From then onwards, she has finished second in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot and fourth in the Falmouth at Newmarket.

Lady Bowthorpe was flying home when beaten only a length on the July Course three weeks ago, having endured a troubled passage, suggesting not only that she would have come out on top in another few strides but also that she is crying out for a step up in trip.

The five-year-old gets the opportunity to test the water over a mile and a quarter for the first time on the Sussex Downs, and has already proved herself when it comes to underfoot conditions.

4.10 Goodwood - Highland Premiere

Highland Premiere can provide Mark Johnston with another success in the Goodwood Racecourse Patrons Nursery.

The Middleham maestro's excellent record at the meeting is well documented, and he has saddled three winners of this particular race in the past seven seasons.

Highland Premiere lines up on a hat-trick, having followed up a novice win at Hamilton with a dominant victory at Catterick.

Those triumphs came on good to firm and soft ground, so there are no weather worries.

Other Goodwood selections: 1.50 Qaader, 4.45 Shoutout, 5.20 Whenthedealinsdone

7.25 Newcastle - French Rain

The best bet on the opening night of the Racing League at Newcastle is Joseph O'Brien's Irish challenger French Rain.

The daughter of Siyouni has been narrowly beaten on each of her two starts since moving to O'Brien from Ger Lyons, and appears to have been found an excellent opportunity to make it third time lucky at Gosforth Park.

Other Newcastle selections: 6.25 Spoof, 6.55 Mohareb, 7.55 Smash Hit, 8.25 Fame N Fortune, 8.55 Mr Curiosity.

6.15 Galway - Belfast Banter

The Guinness Galway Hurdle is the main attraction at Ballybrit, and it is difficult to ignore the claims of Belfast Banter.

Peter Fahey's charge completed a huge double in the spring, winning the County Hurdle at Cheltenham and a Grade One novice event at Aintree's Grand National meeting.

He has been trained with this race in mind and does not look badly handicapped on a mark of 144.

Galway selections: 4.35 Farout, 5.10 Bleu Berry, 5.45 Gin On Lime, 6.15 Belfast Banter, 6.45 Karakhan, 7.15 Fakir D'alene, 7.45 Captain Kangaroo, 8.15 Ultima Thule.
