Steve Hughes has a bet for the best race on Tuesday
It is getting towards the end of the season at Goodwood now, but there is a class 2 staying handicap on their Tuesday card and a horse with a good track record can strike.
Goodwood 4.10: Soldier in Action
Rather out of form in 2018, Soldier in Action has plummeted to a mark of 94 from a starting mark exactly a stone higher and perhaps a return to one of his favoured tracks can bring about a revival.
He has two wins to his name on this undulating track already – a 6l romp in a fast ground 2016 handicap and a battling narrow success at the 2017 Glorious meeting on soft going. He was well backed for that same race at this year’s meeting only to disappoint.
However he has run two solid races since in the Shergar Cup at Ascot and then at the Ebor meeting at York and he might just enjoy the slightly slower ground he encounters today as he has seemed to favour some cut as he gets older.
1pt win – Soldier In Action – 4.10 Goodwood – 3/1 general
