Contemporary from an Ascot double on King George Day, Sky Sports activities Racing ambassador Hollie Doyle is doing a rain dance forward of Trueshan’s potential Goodwood Cup tilt.

Rain boosts Trueshan’s Goodwood Cup defence

The heavy rain forecast over West Sussex on Monday night may come simply within the nick of time for my defending champion TRUESHAN​​ within the Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup (3.35) on the opening day of the Qatar Goodwood Competition.

Tuesday’s Group 1 characteristic is definitely a high-class renewal with four-times winner Stradivarius​ out to avenge his Ascot Gold Cup defeat to the brand new child on the block, Aidan O’Brien’s thrilling Kyprios​.

Trueshan was compelled to overlook that race on account of unsuitably fast floor, after all, however went to Newcastle the next week to supply one of many best weight-carrying handicap performances of all time within the Northumberland Plate.

We’ve got but to come back up towards Kyprios, who may have the staying world at his toes, however have crushed Stradivarius each time we have now come up towards him and if the bottom is in our favour I’d not swap my hero for something. Ought to coach Alan King let him take his likelihood we have now an excellent attract stall 4 to work with.

Each Kyprios and Stradivarius are pitched out wider which supplies me the chance to safe a greater early race place. Goodwood is such a singular observe with a number of twists and turns so that you by no means fairly know the way a 2m race goes to pan out, although.

I am simply hoping for an excellent end-to-end gallop which can hopefully see him produce his highest.

Step up in journey more likely to go well with Burke filly

Karl Burke’s flippantly raced filly BREAKING LIGHT​​ appears my finest likelihood of the day within the supporting races and I am actually wanting ahead to using her within the Coral Overwhelmed-By-A-Size Free Wager Fillies’ Handicap (5.20).

She got here again from a break following wind surgical procedure to bolt up in one other fillies’ race over 7f at Haydock Park a few weeks in the past and appears probably very properly handicapped off a mark of 77, regardless of a 5lb rise.

The daughter of Dabirsim has a beautiful attract stall two and gives the look she will relish the step as much as 1m. She’s nonetheless low mileage and open to sufficient enchancment to maintain the successful run going for an in-form coach.

Enjoying my hand late on Baryshnikov

The Coral Chesterfield Cup (1.50) is an ultra-competitive handicap however my mount BARYSHNIKOV​​ has the instruments to place in a giant efficiency regardless of his lengthy odds. David and Nicola Barron’s gelding has carried out his connections proud already this 12 months, successful back-to-back Class 2s at Pontefract and Chester within the spring.

After all, the handicapper’s had his say since then however he resumes solely 2lb greater than his final successful mark.

We’re drawn on the surface however that shouldn’t be a difficulty over this journey as Baryshnikov is a hold-up horse who appears to get pleasure from weaving a path by way of the sphere and getting there late, as he demonstrated below Connor Beasley on the Roodee.

Observe type a optimistic for Lihou

It is all the time good to trip for my good pal Dave Evans, particularly on the massive conferences, so a outstanding efficiency from LIHOU​​ within the Nicholson Gin Handicap (4.10) would put a smile on my face.

He is nonetheless on a good mark regardless of successful one other 5f handicap at Salisbury two begins in the past and appears to have been galvanised by the visor these days. Lihou completed properly in a course and distance handicap on the finish of April behind the progressive Raasel so the observe holds no fears.

He isn’t wanting gears however I simply want we had the next draw than three, which isn’t best. My draw on LIL GUFF​​ in stall 11 is a lot better within the World Pool EBF Fillies’ Handicap (5.55) over 6f. I received a course and distance novice on Dan and Claire Kubler’s filly final October so returning to Goodwood can solely be a plus.

She’s run creditably in defeat at Newbury and Newmarket and although she wouldn’t need situations too fast, she’s a pointy type who continues to be on a good mark and all the time tries her finest.

Thrilled to achieve 700 home winners

I used to be thrilled to achieve one other massive milestone at Ascot on Saturday after I grew to become solely the second feminine jockey to trip 700 home winners. I couldn’t have hoped for an even bigger stage to realize it on and to trip a double on King George Day on JUMBLY​​ and Tempus​​ made it further particular.

Jumbly, for Harry and Roger Charlton and proprietor Emmy Rothschild, obtained me to 700 within the Group Three Valiant Stakes.

I’m not positive what plans the Charltons bear in mind for the remainder of the season, although the Celebration Mile at Goodwood has been talked about. I will probably be again with my ideas on my Wednesday rides, together with Tremendous Dash winner Eddie’s Boy​​ within the Group Three Molecomb Stakes.
