A superbly bred colt, being by Snitzel and out of Overreach (2013 Golden Slipper winner), Lofty Strike can further enhance his stallion credentials with a Group 1 win in The Goodwood.

After resuming in Febraury with a Group 2 victory, the three-year-old recorded back-to-back Group 1 placings prior an eighth-place finish in the TJ Smith Stakes, which was contested on a Heavy 9 at Randwick.

At $3.20 via PlayUp, Lofty Strike heads the market for the 2023 Goodwood and Zapateo ($5.50) holds down the second line of betting.

The Godolphin mare was well backed to win the Robert Sangster Stakes on May 6 and she was very unlucky with a third behind Ruthless Dame ($7.50), a Maher & Eustace-trained filly that recorded her first Group 1 in that feature.

That was only start number six for the daughter of Tavistock, who almost took out the Group 1 Surround Stakes second-up this campaign.

Kallos ($7.50) is another Godolphin contender and the four-year-old is unbeaten since returning as a gelding, having brought up the winning hat-trick at Morphettville via the RN Irwin Stakes on April 22.

While he's had good success over 1000-1100m, Kallos has been well beaten in both 1200m attempts to date and that's his main negative for The Goodwood.
