Betting Tip: @ 3/1 with betvictor

I can’t say Goodwood has been particularly lucky for me, but I do like the look of the following three horses on day one of the May Festival at the Sussex track.

First up the Height Of Fashion Stakes (due off 4.25pm) which looks a good starting point for Luck Cumani’s LADY OF DUBAI to get her three-year-old campaign off to a winning start. A smart juvenile who progressed in maidens, culminating in a close second to the smart Irish Cookie at Newmarket, she looks the type to do even better over middle distances this term, with plenty of stamina on her dam’s side.

She’s still in the Oaks (50/1 with BetVictor) and may be worth a small each-way bet at that price, but I’d much rather back her to win today at the 3/1 on offer (9/4 in a place). That’s made bigger by the presence of John Gosden’s Jellicle Ball, bet365’s even money favourite, who was heavily in season when flopping in the Guineas and should do better here. However, the selection may well improve past her.
