Six runners on Opening Saturday at Goodwood – Saturday 4th May

We are looking forward to having six runners today at our local track Goodwood on their Opening Saturday;

1.35pm – 1m6f Double Trigger Handicap (Class 5) (4yo+ 0-75)

Horse – Double Legend

Owner – Dean Angell

Jockey – Franny Norton

A winner over a mile and half at Kempton, he was bred to appreciate further and is stepping up in trip today.

2.05pm – 1m4f British Stallion Studs EBF Daisy Warwick Fillies’ Stakes (Listed Race)  (Class 1) (4yo+)

Horse – Mazzuri

Owner – Mrs S Conway

Jockey – Jason Watson

Mazzuri was listed place in Ireland and should benefit from her first run at Epsom last week.

2.40pm – 7f Goodwood May Food Festival Handicap (Class 2) (4yo+ 0-100)

Horse – Count Otto

Owners – Count Otto Partnership

Jockey – Jason Watson

Count Otto ran a nice first race at Newmarket a fortnight ago, he won’t be helped by his outside draw and this trip is unknown but he is in good form at home.

3.15pm – 5f Farmer, Butcher, Chef Handicap (Class 3) (4yo+ 0-95)

Horse – Open Wide

Owners – George Materna and John McInerney

Jockey – Pat Dobbs

Open Wide needs top of the ground to be at his best, he was third first time out this year at Newmarket and we hope he goes two better!

4.20pm – 7f Sussex Roof Garden Novice Stakes (Class 4) (3yo+)

Horse – Deference

Owner – Mr K Abdullah

Jockey – Pat Dobbs

Deference was placed twice last season and has wintered well and today is his first start on the turf.

4.55pm – 1m2f Long View Handicap (Div I) (Class 5) (3yo 0-75)

Horse – Azets

Owner – John Connolly and Odile Griffith

Jockey – Harry Bentley

Azets has been disappointing on his last two starts but we are hoping that the blinkers make a difference to him today.
