Goodwood Tips: El Astronaute
All speed and should be suited by the sharp track. Ran well two starts back at Ayr.
El Astronaute is all speed and is the type of horse who will take to Goodwood’s sharp 5f track.
Last time out he was well beaten at York but wasn’t helped by the draw and might be better suited racing against his own age group.
Two starts back at Ayr he showed tremendous early speed but went a stride too quick and lost several places at the finish. Despite the minor misjudgement in pace he was only beaten by 1.75 lengths and earned an adjusted speed rating of 94.
A three-time winner already in his young career he looks well treated racing off a mark of 86.
