3 pts win COOL SKY 14/1 (at least ten firms)
Matchbook Betting Goodwood H'cap

Down the years this has been a frustrating race to try to get to grips with but one where you cannot help get involved. Cool Sky is 5 lb higher in the ratings when successful in the race last year. He's won twice over hurdles since and his run at Newcastle in the Plate consolation race was his first back on the level. He was beaten a long way but he's from one of the shrewdest operations around and a return to his best would surprise nobody.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win GUSTAV KLIMT 15/2 ( at least eight firms)
Qatar Sussex Stakes

Has developed into a consistent high-class miler who has a big one in him if the cards fall right. Just lacks that bit of extra toe at crucial stages in his races but appears to be taking his racing well and only has half a length to make up on Without Parole from Ascot. No stable companion pacemakers for him but no doubt there is a plan and he is the value call here.
