Plenty of excitement on the first two days at Goodwood but the weather remains far from settled - tonight's Sandown card was cut short by a heavy storm.
The ground has improved to Soft, Good to Soft in places.
Friday's Group 2 King George over 1000m has 13 runners - with STRADIVARIUS missing out on Tuesday, BATTAASH has his turn at making history by winning this race for the fifth time.
His principal opponent, DRAGON SYMBOL, wasn't even born when BATTAASH won this for the first time.
However, nothing lasts for ever - BATTAASH was fourth in a King's Stand where the speed merchants cut their own throats - if the ground gets back nearer to Good, he has a huge chance and may have too much speed for DRAGON SYMBOL who was runner up in both the Commonwealth Cup and the July Cup on his last two runs - in the former of course he was first past the post before being demoted in the stewards' room. The problem is these races were over a stiff 1200m and I just wonder if he'll be found out over a sharp 1000m.
ART POWER ran well in both the Diamond Jubilee and the July Cup but again could be a 1200m type.
GLASS SLIPPERS is interesting and especially if we get more rain - she's not been seen since winning the Breeders Cup Turf Sprint having run second in the Abbaye on Heavy ground.
LIBERTY BEACH was third in Paris he was six lengths behind BATTAASH in the 2020 renewal of this race but that was on quick ground.
Both GLASS SLIPPERS and LIBERTY BEACH come into this if we get more rain but if the ground dries, BATTAASH looks the safest option.

Handicapping good news,
At first glance, I like the hadicapping changes. Being able to win your first race and retain the same rating band makes sense to me.
Hopefully a step in the right dirrection, in this instance.

You sound like a broke trainer talking to his only remaining owner about turning his last remaining horse from being a perpetual loser into a maiden winner. "Soon".
It's been 5 years of "soon". The 4 year old stallion is now a 9 year old gelding with no future as a racehorse or a stud proposition. "Soon" just does not cut it anymore.
If there was a two horse race between Gruff the old Grey (odds on favourite) and Hundy (at 100-1), well the odds say it all. Hundy is a loser. Gruff, you win this one with your epic line; "It better happen soon 100 your Credibility is at Rock Bottom".
You are watching a military operation. The aussies need the lockdowns to wake the people up and rise up against. the tyranny.
The people are going take back their countries.
It will soon become crystal clear to what has happened.
Aug 10/11 for the start of election fraud for the brainwashed IMO
Trump is even telling.them that at every rally.
Tell me another logical explanation as to why these leaders throughout the world are making such insane decisions
Ha You can't
It better happen soon 100 your Credibility is at Rock Bottom 😣 Question remains what exactly is this Bioweapon and its related ‘Vaccine’ going to do to the Population ? The Chinese Communist Party pharma Fosun is working with ‘Vaccine’ manufacturer Biontech at present producing more Swill, when do the ‘Boosters’ start getting introduced? They need to exhaust their original supply before one would expect..who is Directing Gladys Berejiklian in Sydney? This World has a History of War Death and Deceit , what makes things different now 🤔
They were taken down a long time ago and now it's the publics turn to see for themselves. So far the people think the world has gone mad but the election fraud will set off a series of events that will expose every truth. The Military will step in
Thae have taken down the deep state without firing a shot.
Trust the plan
These brainwashed idiots support the cheaters
Team Trump are exposing the filth and theres nothing they can do about it.
As the fraud is exposed these pricks have no place to hide
They released the bioweapon to rig the election with mail in voting
Down they all go
It is going to be epic.
