Goodwood evening racing tips: Best bet for Friday, June 7

The first of Three Friday Nights at Goodwood on June 7 and singer-songwriter-DJ Craig David will be performing after the races, even the Planet Sport tipsters have heard of him.

Encouraging more people to racing seems to have certainly done the trick for this Goodwood meeting, with the concert sold out.

We've no idea whether the 7 Days singer knows anything about backing horses so we've left it to the experts and they begin with some details on our four selections at Goodwood. There's a full set of tips from the six-race card at the bottom of the page.

Don't forget to check out the full racecard, results and live odds in Planet Sport's racing live centre.

Good luck and please gamble responsibly.

18:35 (Goodwood) D Flawless


D Flawless appeals in the William Hill Epic Value Apprentice Fillies’ Novice Stakes, with connections having opted to go for this contest rather than a Listed event on Saturday at the Sussex course.

Her narrow second to Arisaig at Kempton in December has worked out well and the Gosdens gave the daughter of Make Believe a nice confidence booster when she scored at prohibitive odds at Chelmsford.


19:35 (Goodwood) Royal Velvet

Dropping back to seven furlongs may prove a positive move for Royal Velvet in the William Hill Extra Place Races Apprentice Handicap.

This daughter of Lightning Spear didn't look to stay when not beaten far into seventh over 1m at Newmarket in latest and may resume her upward trajectory under Brandon Wilkie.

Loaded Quiver returned to action with a good third tackling this trip at Salisbury and should be respected.

The unexposed Crimson Coronet was below-par when last of seven making handicap debut at Nottingham. Could do better now down in journey.


20:10 (Goodwood) Botas

Botas recorded an eighth career success scoring a 1m contest at Kempton last-time-out.

The 4lb rise in weights might not be enough to prevent a follow-up with Luke Catton his regular apprentice rider on board once more.

One Step Beyond commands respect following a solid third-placed finish tackling 1m at Ascot.

The winner of that contest won a valuable Epsom handicap last weekend giving form a boost. Rates a big danger.

Island Bandit makes reappearance over a course and distance where he won his sole outing.

Cabinet Of Clowns is also worth noting.


20:45 (Goodwood) Dancing In Paris

It was a competitive handicap Dancing In Paris landed at York. The Ian Williams-trained four-year-old might take some beating off a revised mark.

Genesius shaped as though he could come on for the run when third tackling slightly shorter at Lingfield upon return. Maintains solid credentials off the same rating with ground conditions to suit.

Dropping in standard Vaynor is back below his previous winning mark and cannot be ruled out with the talented Jack Enright claiming 5lb.

Fiddlers Green may feature once more despite failing to land a hat-trick managing sixth at Leicester.

GOODWOOD: 6.05 Pink Lily, 6.35 D Flawless, 7.05 Alpine Girl, 7.35 Royal Velvet, 8.10 Botas, 8.45 Dancing In Paris.
