Goodwood Tips: Pastoral Player
Record in class 4 handicaps is 112 and fast finisher from poor draw at Lingfield last time.
Pastoral Player couldn’t quite get the job done when we tipped him at Lingfield earlier in the month but his second place now brings his record in class 4 handicaps to 112.
This afternoon he returns to his favourite venue, Goodwood, where he’s won twice during his decorated career.
At his best on fast ground, tracking a strong pace at 7f, he should get conditions to suit which he perhaps didn’t get at Lingfield. Looking at the overall time the ground was softer than reported or the pace steady, either way Pastoral Player finished with a flourish and should be seen to better effect on the Sussex Downs.
