Best bet for the horse racing Friday 26th May

So far so average this week with my three bets all losers! I am getting involved again on Friday and all being well it will be fourth time lucky this week. There are a number of competitive cards, and the big meeting out in Ireland at the Curragh gets underway but I am sticking to the UK and the Sussex Downs. 

Best bet for the horse racing at Goodwood

It's a good card at Goodwood and the race I am involved with is the 4.10 the 1m3f British EBF 40th Anniversary Cocked Hat Stakes. No points for originality here but you had to be impressed with the debut win of Gregory at Haydock when he beat three previous winners; and one of them has come out and won again since to frank the form. Having got away slowly he progressed steadily and took it up just over a furlong out to win readily. He hasn't got any flashy entries like some of these but I wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to the the best of them lining-up. By Golden Horn out of G.2 winning Galileo mare Gretchin its a family with plenty of winners in it several of them 100+ rated. I have the 11-8 overnight as I think he will go off shorter than that. 

I was tempted to take a chance with Veil Of Shadows in the earlier fillies Listed heat but missed the 4-1 (generally 9-4 as I write) and I have decided to leave her alone - watch the bugger win now! 

Be lucky
