Glorious Goodwood 2018 Day 4 Betting Tips – Niall Cronin

The penultimate day of Glorious Goodwood throws up some real competitive racing and a couple of horses who have recently been hitting the crossbar might just make their mark.

Dunlop Is In The Red
Red Verdon was second to Crystal Ocean last time and has been knocking on the door all year since he opened his account on the all weather earlier in the year, and the Group 3 Glorious Stakes would look a good chance for him to get back to winning ways.

Eminent, Mirage Dancer and Second Step all make this into a potential thrilling finish and there could be confidence behind each of those runners and with good reason in a race of this nature.

However, Red Verdon looks to be running over his favourite trip and he probably has the pick of the form over his career and…

is sided with here at odds of 7/2.

Hills To Batta Them
Blue Point is one of the best sprinters around at the moment and in his absence it is Battaash who is picked to land the Group 2 Qatar Stakes on Friday.

Being a Group 1 winner in France last year, Battaash has to concede weight all around here but that 3lbs penalty is doable for the four-year-old who sets a high standard here.

The ground should be ideal for the course and distance winner who won this race last year when beating Profitable and unless Sioux Nation can spark into life over this minimum trip…

it would look like this should be rather straightforward for Battaash.
