Frankie’s Four for Wednesday 2 August, 2023

  • Back Tony Montana in the 13:50 at Goodwood @ 10/1
  • Back Jumbly in the 14:25 at Goodwood @ 4/1
  • Back Kylian in the 15:00 at Goodwood @ 5/2
  • Back Queen Regent in the 16:45 at Goodwood @ 13/2

1:50 – This is a tricky race but finding the winner could be rewarding if it comes at a nice price. Both Amleto and Struth have won in very testing conditions at Chester and the more rain that comes they may become of more interest but as it stands I am siding with the Amo racing horse. Tony Montana was beaten favourite on his first two starts before being tried in the Group 3 Hampton Court stakes at Ascot which suggested to me he must be showing some ability at home. That ability came good when winning last time out at Newbury easily, yes this is harder but I don’t think we have seen the best of him.

2:25 Oak Tree Stakes – I really like Olivia Maralda who won at Epsom before finishing a close 5th at the Royal meeting in the G3 Jersey stakes. The forecast however is putting me off because she underperformed on soft in the 1000 and at the time of writing this there is 100% chance of rain forecast Tuesday overnight and into Wednesday morning. The selection is going to be Jumbly who does have soft ground form. She finished 2nd in a Group 2 on her first start for Joseph O’Brien before coming 4th at the Royal Meeting. Both of those performances could arguably be good enough to win this race alone, back to 7 and a softer surface I think might make her even better.

3:00 Molecombe StakesKylian was very impressive when being pulled out wide to quicken and win relatively easily at Sandown last time out. Big Evs the Royal Ascot winner does look pretty straight forward and will likely lead, I am hoping this acts as a bit of a target for Ryan Moore to aim at on board Kylian and provided he can stay close to big evs I think could go past him in the last half furlong.

4:45 – Queen Regent looked very promising when finishing strongly last time out at Wolverhampton, nearly catching the winner who stole the race turning for home. She is yet to be raced on turf, and again the rain makes that even more worrying, but John & Thady Gosden do a great job at unleashing their horses at the right time into handicaps and I am hoping this is no different.
