Glorious Goodwood tips: Dave Nevison's best bets for Saturday

It's the final day of the Qatar Goodwood Festival and Dave Nevison is hoping to finish with a flourish. Watch all the action live on Racing TV.

1.40 Goodwood: Lethal Levi

This is not the race that the sponsors would have expected or wanted with only 12 runners who didn’t make the cut for the Stewards Cup lining up.

However, it is an ill wind that blows nobody any good and Lethal Levi looks to have been gifted another pretty valuable prize here.

The weights closed before Karl Burke’s three-year-old began his rapid improvement and he only has a 6lb. It means he can run off a mark lower than he won off last weekend.

Lethal levi has been fairly busy but he has thrived and certainly didn’t look as though he was going over the top when he bolted up, showing customary blistering pace at Newmarket.

This course will suit his style well and he won under his 3lb claimer last weekend, so I have no concerns about Pierre Louis Jamin keeping the ride.

2.10 Goodwood: Cemhaan

A race that is sometimes a good trial for the Ebor and Cemhaan is one of a few who could do with going up in the weights to give themselves a shot at that massive pot.

Cemhaan has been an improver this season, including under Hollie Doyle, who has again excelled at Goodwood this week.

His run of good efforts seemed to come to an end last time at Royal Ascot but he should have been closer there as he met trouble turning into the short straight and ended up too far back to get to the leaders.

He was not knocked about when it was clear he had no chance but he will have another two furlongs to race over on Saturday. He is a proven winner at this trip and a longer straight at Goodwood will provide every chance of mounting a challenge.

He is number 49 in the Ebor and even a penalty will make it tough for him to get in, but I will be happy if he notches this one for starters.

3.20 Goodwood: Regional

The recent memory of Ryan Moore steering a hold-up sprinter through a massive field in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot tips me towards Regional in this traditional cavalry charge.

I put up this horse at Epsom and he ran quite well but might have been a little rusty after a break but progressed a little last time with a really good run over too short a trip at Doncaster this month.

Regional is a 6f horse and was placed at Group Three level in Doha early in the year, so certainly has the class to win a race such as this. He should be fully fit on his third run after a break and his trainer, Ed Bethell, has been amongst the winners in July. Bookmakers are offering up to eight places for each-way players.


4.30 Goodwood: Fantasy Believer

Has been running well over a mile this season, but does stay this trip well and ran a good third over this course and distance in a 14-runner handicap last September.

Fantasy Believer is in really good form, having won his last two, yet t is still only a couple of pounds higher than when third in that race last season.

He looks now to be improving for his new yard and will definitely get a race run to suit. The difficulty for Tom Marquand, who has won on his in the past, will be plotting a path on this hold-up horse but there are few better than him.
