Since Glorious Goodwood is anticipated to start on his preferred good to the soft footing in the Group 2 race this morning, Kinross, who finished first and second in the World Pool Lennox Stakes (4.00) the previous two years, has been backed into the favourite position.
After Pogo became the third non-runner in the race and Al Suhail and Jumby were both disqualified, the eight-time champion dropped to 11-10 yesterday night, but has since received continued support and is now 10-11 with Sky Bet and William Hill.
The going at Goodwood is still excellent to soft; soft in spots on Tuesday morning. The six-year-old horse trained by Ralph Beckett has recorded his three highest Racing Post Ratings when the term soft-featured in the going description.
Kinross is back up to seven furlongs, where he boasts form numbers of 1142111, after finishing third behind the magnificent Shaquille in the July Cup on the same surface last time out.
Other places; Courage In the Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup Stakes (4.35), the day’s highlight at Goodwood, Mon Ami is 7-4 to make it five wins in a row. The Group 1 competition pits the victor of the Ascot Gold Cup from last month against authors like Emily Dickinson and John Coltrane.
The Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap (6.40) is the main event on the mixed card on day two at Galway. The Noel Meade-trained athlete has received support for being the favourite so far.
