4.55 Goodwood - Shobiz @ 5/4

With doubts about the current wellbeing for a few of these, and doubts about the course or going for others, it can pay to keep it simple with a last-time-out winner, who should race prominently and has one of the top jockeys in the world on board.

There are plenty of reasons for thinking that Charlie Hills' charge can step up on his win at Newbury last time, where on a day it paid to race stands' side, he beat horses from stalls 16, 18 and 19 in winning from stall 2.

He showed a tremendous attitude that day as they were racing from a long way out and he had to battle hard, not looking the most likely winner until well inside the last furlong.

It may pay to take a positive view of the form as it was run in a time only marginally slower than the Listed Carnarvon Stakes, and SHOBIZ ran sectionals that almost exactly mirror the winner of that race, Shaquille, who is a strong fancy for the Commonwealth Cup.

He hasn't had much racing for a 5YO and with doubts about so many of his rivals and prominent racers favoured here on fast ground, he looks worth a decent bet.

Gary Savage's tip:

Shobiz @ 5/4 - 2pt win

1.35 Goodwood - Light And Dark @ 6/1

Saeed bin Suroor has his string in tremendous form, operating at a 32% success rate this season, and when he puts Oisin Murphy up it pays to take heed, as the jockey has ridden three winners and a second from only five rides for him this season.

Bin Suroor is also a past master at getting horses ready after a break and LIGHT AND DARK, who has only had 15 starts, has run decent races after being off the track for some time.

He was narrowly beaten in a Class 2 handicap at Sandown after more than a year off in 2020, and went close after a break of 79 days last August off a mark 1lb higher than today's, so with the fast ground playing to his strengths and Oisin up, he is sure to be ready.

Gary Savage's tip:

Light And Dark @ 6/1 - 1pt win

3.20 Goodwood - Elegancia @ 12/1

Al Asifah seems to be a massive talking horse and will be a warm order for this after a bloodless victory in her only start at Haydock, but she is surely worth taking on in this Listed contest that has seen only two favourites prevail in the last eight years.

Most of those defeated favourites have had similar profiles to Al Asifah, with the Gosden yard responsible for two of them (beaten at Evens and 10/11), and it's not hard to pick holes in her maiden win.

She beat an eight-race maiden rated 74 and stable companion Ginza, third at Haydock, was well beaten in a novice next time, so as yet Al Asifah hasn't proved much.

The value alternative looks to be the Charltons' ELEGANCIA, with her comeback run displaying plenty of promise in a classy novice at Ascot

She was sent off at 14/1, so little was seemingly expected, and she was only pushed out to be a running-on fourth over the 1m trip.

She was three lengths behind the winner, who was narrowly beaten in a Listed contest next time, and with the step up in trip sure to suit, on breeding, she can go well.

Gary Savage's tip:

Elegancia @ 12/1 - 1pt each-way
