Jim Crowley: “Everything’s on course for a big run from Enbihaar”
Coral ambassador previews his rides for the final day at Glorious Goodwood
I’ve got some of my best rides of the week on Saturday and hopefully it will be a great end to the five days racing at Goodwood. I begin with Tinto in the first, who also ran on Thursday here. He ran a nice race over five furlongs and really got going late on.
He is equally effective running over six furlongs and with sprinters the couple of days turnaround doesn’t tend to make a difference. He has a really strong each way chance.
Corgi is a horse that I know really well and he has been running very consistently for a long time now. His only try over this trip was last year at York and I think it was the ground that caught him out rather than the distance.
I don’t think the trip will be a problem and on his only race at Goodwood so far he finished second. He will be there or there abouts and I’m looking forward to another strong run from him.
Enbihaar is carrying three pounds more than Dramatic Queen who looks our closest rival in this race. They are level at the moment, having beaten one other once each, so she will need to have progressed to win again at the weights.
I have every reason to believe she will though, and the trip and ground all look to be in her favour. Everything is on course for a big run and fingers crossed we can come out on top.
Khaadem was unlucky last time out when I got stuck behind The Tin Man, who was favourite, and we never got into the race.
Whilst he has age against him, being one of the few three-year-olds in the race, he is a lightly raced horse with a lot of ability and is definitely on the way up. I think he has a great chance.
Berkshire Rocco ran on really well to finish fourth at Ascot on his first start and he will of improved a lot from that experience. There are a couple of hot looking horses in this race but if he uses all of that experience and promise we can be right in the mix at the finish.
