Because of the irritating outcomes on the Sussex Downs yesterday for Bestofbets.com readers, just one place may assist me wind down for the night.
Who wants Goodwood when you could have Worcester?

Sure, that’s proper, should you had been searching for someplace to look at Harry Cobden hose up on an odds-on nag, Fergal O’Brien hit the goal with one runner, and the well-known Sam Twiston-Davies drive, then Worcester Racecourse was the course to be at.
In all seriousness, we dipped our toe into the five-day assembly yesterday with two agonising seconds, so with hope for higher outcomes as we speak, let’s dive into my Wonderful Goodwood Day 2 bets.
1:50 Goodwood – Amleto @ 2/1 with William Hill – 3pt Win

Beginning with the opening contest of the day, I imagine that AMLETO will oblige on the high of the marketplace for William Haggas and Tom Marquand.
Loads appears to be on the facet of this Sea The Stars thee-year-old over the 1m4f take a look at of the Coral Handicap, most of which the tender floor following a downpour of rain in a single day; the thrice-raced gelding gained on tender floor final day out, so he ought to deal with situations.
6.8mm of rain in a single day @Goodwood_Races with extra to comply with. Going replace following however more likely to be tender

Moreover, a well-reported truth is Amleto’s gorgeous pedigree as he’s a full brother to the 2018 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe runner-up Sea Of Class and a half-brother to final yr’s Irish Cesarewitch winner Waterville.
In fact, relations aren’t at all times destined to be pretty much as good as one another, nonetheless, there’s some encouragement behind the power of his household as his dam, Holy Moon, has produced 12 offspring which have gone on to realize an RPR of no less than 90, which is spectacular.
The 240,000GNS yearling buy is certainly well-regarded by all related, one thing that was backed up by jockey Tom Marquand after his Chester win, as he mentioned: “That’s why you rush your self again, to trip horses which might be thrilling for the longer term – Amleto is a horse that’s studying and constructing on what he’s been doing and he’s definitely going the proper means.”
Beautiful efficiency! Amleto, a full brother to the sensible Sea Of Class, will get off the mark in fashion at @ChesterRaces for @TomMarquand and William Haggas 💛 pic.twitter.com/GNaLUH41cF

Due to this fact, though he’s a brief value, I hope that can be justified by the point the opener concludes.
2:25 Goodwood – White Moonlight @ 7/1 with BetVictor – 1.5pts EW

The Group 3 Oak Tree Stakes is at all times a troublesome race to work out and this yr isn’t any totally different as I’ve made instances for no less than 5 runners all through the previous couple of days.
After deliberation, WHITE MOONLIGHT is the one I’ve landed on at 8/1 with BetVictor.
Two horses characterize Godolphin on this contest at related costs along with her and Dream Of Love, who initially caught my consideration due to her second to Mawj on tender floor in Meydan, nonetheless, her back-class doesn’t instantly counsel that she may run to a ranking of round 110 to win right here as we speak.
Whereas, the Saeed bin Suroor-trained White Moonlight may very well be an excellent mare within the area who, regardless of being the oldest within the area, can enhance and proceed her wealthy vein of type.
White Moonlight shines within the Listed Queen Charlotte fillies’ stakes @ChelmsfordCRC 👀@KShoemark excels aboard @godolphin’s mare, who was offering Saeed bin Suroor with back-to-back victories within the race.

Since returning to the observe in June 2022 after a 971-day lay-off, she has a plethora of excellent type with fellow owner-mates Gentle Whisper and Wild Magnificence (each rated 106) in addition to her shut second to the 112-rated Saratoga Oaks winner With The Moonlight earlier this yr.
After that, she returned to the UK and following a straightforward run at Lingfield, she beat Heredia on good-to-firm floor at Musselburgh earlier than her large effort to succeed over the well-fancied Queen Aminatu on the all-weather at Chelmsford.
These two runs put her on a fantastic trajectory to carry out properly this week and contemplating her dam, Fitful Skies, positioned in a Listed occasion on very tender throughout her racing profession, she will feasibly be a greater horse in slower situations.
3:00 Goodwood – Baheer @ 9/2 with BetVictor – 2pt Win

Lastly, to finish the trio of fancies from the primary three races, I can’t let BAHEER slip previous me within the Group 2 Molecomb Stakes.
Once I did the Solely Fools Stay Horses Goodwood preview on Monday night, Richard Hannon’s two-year-old by Mehmas was an 11/1 poke with some corporations, and though I did count on to see some value motion earlier than flag fall at 3:00 as we speak, I wasn’t anticipating him to half in value.
Saying that, Herridge Racing Stables regarded him as the perfect two-year-old earlier than the season started and though he dissatisfied on his first begin at Newbury, he rapidly put that apart to win in early July.
Now then ….
Baheer (Mehmas) was merely working on a special stage in division two of the six-furlong novice stakes @NewburyRacing 👀 @rhannonracing and @AlShaqabRacing look to have unearthed one other potential starlet ✨ pic.twitter.com/dyUXrvoKls

He appears to be a horse who has loads of velocity over six, so as we speak’s drop again to 5 furlongs shouldn’t be a fear, and in what appears like a beatable Molecomb area, I’m with Baheer beneath Pat Dobbs.
