Betting Tip: @ Life Of Riley @ 11/2 with bet365

The Listed contest for two-year-olds has attracted a decent field and they include John Gosden’s Kessar, an easy winner of a Windsor novice last time, and Richard Hannon’s Neverland Rock, who looked nailed on to relish dropping back to 6f at Goodwood last time only to disappoint. That was probably down to him hating the undulating track and his jockey wasn’t hard on him from the furlong marker, so a better run can be expected.

However, I prefer the chances of Karl Burke’s LIFE OF RILEY as he’s the only course winner in the field and has given the impression he was crying out for 6f on his last two runs over the minimum. He had the re-opposing Barbill behind in fourth when finishing runner up at Sandown two starts back and then filled the same spot in the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes, seeing that race out really well to finish in front of Soldier’s Call and Vintage Brut, winners of the Windsor Castle and National Stakes respectively.

That’s just about the best form on offer here and he should do better still over today’s extra furlong, with his trainer seemingly unconcerned about the prospect of soft ground when earmarking this contest for his son of Showcasing in a Stable Tour last week.
