One on the flat at Goodwood today, where course and distance winner Arthur McBride, contests the 5.25, a 2m handicap.
That win, last September came in a class 2 event from a mark of 83 and saw a rise to 87 & 88 under which he contested two Newmarket class 2’s over 2m 2f in which he finished mid-division both times. Down to a class 3 today, he gets back a couple of pounds to 86. The faster ground shouldn’t inconvenience him, he comes back following a breathing op in good form and is capable of going close.
Finley Marsh rides, claims 3lbs and a good run expected.
