7/2 Thaqaffa looks glorious at Goodwood

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Thaqaffa ran a blinder when runner-up last time out and rates a solid bet at 7/2  in the 3.30 at Goodwood today.

Marcus Tregoning’s colt shaped well in three starts as a juvenile and there was lots to like about his reappearance run at Chelmsford last month when splitting a pair of subsequent winners.

The three-year-old ran on well to be beaten just 1 1/4 lengths by On This Is Us who has since come out and bolted up in impressive fashion at Newmarket off 7lb higher.

We Are Ninety, who finished 2 1/2 lengths behind the selection in third, has also since come out and landed a hot Listed contest at Newbury to be rated 98.

That gives the form an extremely strong look and makes a 4lb rise in the weights for Thaqaffa look very lenient.

Off a mark of just 71 he looks potentialy miles ahead of the assessor, especially given his unexposed and progressive profile.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Thaqaffa (7/2 Stan James – BOG)
