Get in front with the exclusive views of handicap expert Van Guard.
Sir Edwin Landseer will never be solid betting material in any race but every horse has it's price and at around 40.0 Christian Wroe's quirky sprinter has gone beyond his.
A 6lb pull for 6 lengths with Osiris Way wouldn't normally offer up much hope of a reverse but that was Edwin's first start for 6 months and with the cheekpieces back on (last three wins have come in them) all is not lost.
He enjoys Goodwood despite not winning at the Sussex track and although you have to go back to 2006 to find some British handicap form that gives him a good shout he was in decent nick in Nad Al Sheba earlier in the year. He'll be held up as per usual and with the likes of Masai Moon and Kings Caprice burning a trail, things could well open up for him.
In the 4.50 the Jamie Poulton yard have gone for a touch and despite missing the early double figure prices I'm still prepared to limp in at 8.0.
Triggers Friend scored back to back wins in July and looked hard as nails in the process. She didn't handle the firm gound next time and although her last run was nothing spectacular she stayed on like the relentless galloper she undoubtedly is. It will be a war of attrition today and that will suit Triggers Friend who has a feather weight and the best lightweight jockey in the business doing the steering. Estate looks bound to run a big race but he might just find it tough giving our girl 19lbs over 2 miles on soft ground and at the prices I'd rather be with the bottom weight.Back Sir Edwin Landseer LOST
Back Triggers Friend 3rd @ 8.0
