Welcome to arseonlineracing. A 100% independent racing website with NO affiliate links. This website is curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles, Charlie hails from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight… Miles apart but united by the sport of kings…..

This is our last blog post of the week with Charlie away on Saturday & Rich is having a weekend with his family, so we would like to take this chance to say a Big Thanks to Jamie(@Glen_Colt) for his work this week and we look forward to having him back on site very soon…
It was a poor day from the 3 of us yesterday & we will be looking to do a lot better today… No recap today as it was too bad to be true!

As with all blogs this week, Charlie will lead the way with Jamie’s Galway thoughts the meat in the Goodwood sandwich with Rich having the final word…

Charlie –

Goodwood 

2.25 – Biometric -Has raced 4 times winning 3 and placing 2nd in the other. The wins came at Salisbury on debut over 7f when seeing off Songkran by a head. Next win came at Newbury when seeing off Red Armada by a head over 7f. Finished 2nd on next start at Lingfield when dropping in distance to 6f losing by 3/4 of a length to Nahaarr. Latest win came at Ascot over 1m when beating Turgenev by 1 and 1/4 lengths. Looks to be progressing and may have more to come, although this race is a bit deeper than previous races, if Biometric turns up in same mood could be in the mix again here for the Beckett yard and at 6-1 is a win selection.

Win Advised

.

3.35 – El Astronaute – Has been in fantastic form since June winning twice and placing 2nd once from last 3 starts. The Wins came at Cork over 5f when beating Smash Williams by 3/4 of length. Next win came at the Curragh over 5f when beating Manshood by 1 length. Was returned to the Curragh for latest race when finishing 2nd to Soffia who won by 3 and 1/2 lengths. Although Battash looks the likely winner here El Astronaute is 10-1 and is worth an eachway play and should chase Battash home.

Eachway Advised

.

4.10 – Praxeology -Has only raced 4 times winning twice and finishing 2nd and 3rd in the other 2 races. Was 2nd on racecourse debut at Chelmsford over 5f when losing by a neck to Lambeth Walk. Was then sent to Ascot to race over 5f and finished a 3 and 1/2 length 3rd behind Expressionist. Next race was at Ripon and saw Praxeology making the step up in trip to 6f a winning one by beating Just Jean by 5 lengths. Latest victory came at Salisbury when beating Wightman by 2 lengths over 6f on the 16th June. Looks to be progressing nicely over 6f and another bold show looks likely here for the inform Johnson yard and is currently available at 3-1 with most firms.

Jamie(@Glen_Colt) – Galway 

5:45 – Irish EBF Median Auction Maiden – Selection: Alpine Star

The selection here finished a fine third on debut in one of the hottest Fillies Maidens of the Irish flat season so far. Jessica Harrington’s Filly was only beaten 1 ¾ lengths by subsequent Group winner Love. Tuesday’s Maiden winner Petit Mustique was just behind her in fourth. That form sees her set the standard for what on paper looks
another hot maiden. If she has progressed from that Leopardstown race, then she has a great chance of being the latest 2yo winner from the red-hot Harrington stable.

6:15 – Guinness Galway Blazer Handicap Chase – Selection: Mindsmadeup (e/w advised)

Matthew J Smith’s horse has been running very well of late, including a wide margin success at Downpatrick in June. He ran even better behind Ravenhill at Limerick, beaten 1 ¾ lengths. Ravenhill went onto run into a good fifth in the Galway Plate on Wednesday not beaten all that far. If he could replicate that performance at Limerick then Mindsmadeup will be in the mix for sure, he also looks very well handicapped still. It’s a tough race though so I would advise an e/w investment here if you are planning to bet on this race.

6:50 – Guinness Handicap (3yo+) – Selection: King’s Vow

The O’Brien’s holds a strong hand in this race with Il Paradiso well fancied for Aidan. However, I think Joseph O’Brien could have the dark horse in this race. King’s Vow, a Son of the mighty Frankel has been improving with every race this campaign and looks the sort to appreciate running into a fast pace, which he should get here. He was just touched off in the Ulster Derby last time by a good sort in Dadoozdart. Everything looks set for a big run again and he shouldn’t be far away.
