Ray Flanagan with Goodwood selection
thought for the day: “My cousin was giving me advice on life yesterday, I says to her I have 4 things on my mind, Gambling, Golfing, Squashing and Womanising”
I do not agree with Sunday breaks for Irish Racing but then again I suppose the jockeys and stable staff deserve a day off.
One selection at Goodwood this afternoon.
Goodwood 5.15- City Wanderer
First handicap for City Wanderer who admittedly has not shown a great deal in three maiden outings and now enters his first handicap. I thought the son of Kodiac showed definite promise though in a reasonable Newbury maiden recently and he went straight into my notebook after watching that race. After missing the break I was impressed at how he moved through the race and picked off a few tiring rivals late in the day. It will be interesting to see if my hunch is right or way off but I am hopeful he can make a handicapper.
The top man Silvestre De Sousa (pictured) takes over in the saddle today.
