2024 The Goodwood Tips


2024 The Goodwood Best Bet - Amelia's Jewel

While there are queries with the WA star staying at 1200m, I feel her naysayers are really underrating her sprinting form, which includes a last start second behind Overpass.

They settled closer in The Quokka behind the eventual winner, who grows another leg in Perth and if you take out his Everest run, then Overpass has been a genuine topliner.

With respect to I Am Me and more recently, Johnny Rocker, there's nothing in this Goodwood field who would trouble Overpass over six furlongs on a firm Ascot deck.

The blinkers go on in her final start for Simon Miller, with the Perth trainer noting that Amelia's Jewel had come back bigger this campaign, so there's clearly improvement to come.
2024 The Goodwood Next Best Bet - Skybird

A talented three-year-old who won her first three races in style last spring, Skybird returned to winning form last start over this track/trip via the Tobin Bronze Stakes.

Although the Victorian is likely to prosper over 1400m-1600m, her turn-of-foot has been on display over sprint trips and she was able pinch early runs last start to land closer.

Jumping from barrier five again under Beau Mertens, he'll need to adopt similar tactics, especially given the early speed is questionable and that will make it harder to loop the field.

Skybird looks the real x-factor in this field, while she's still very lightly raced with a ceiling that could be anything and the filly carries 2.5kg less for this third-up assignment.
2024 The Goodwood Value Bet - Sghirripa

The D C McKay Stakes (now John Hawkes Stakes) is the traditional lead-up and it's often an underrated form line, as long priced Goodwood winners have been produced.

Despatch (2019) and Savatoxl (2021) took out this feature at big odds after winning that race, while Santa Ana Lane (2018) was a 25/1 Goodwood winner after an obvious flashing light run.

I want to include the best run from this year's edition, with What You Need and Sghirripa sharing that mantle but I'll lean towards the latter with this feature in mind.

Sghirripa in not only better in at the weights here, but it's also worth noting that he spent 18 days in the paddock via his freshen-up, so there's a platform to really spike here.
