Angus McNae's top tips for Sunday: Jazzy ready to hit all the right notes at Goodwood

The Racing TV presenter has four fancies for Sunday's racing action at Goodwood and Perth, the two meetings live on Racing TV.

1.50 Goodwood: Ice Sprite at a general 6-5

This Zoffany filly has won her last two starts and can complete the hat-trick here. She won - despite meeting trouble in running - at Windsor last time out and that success came on soft ground, which is what she will encounter here.

For a daughter of Zoffany, she seems to stay very well and remains well treated off a rating of 84

She will go off at a relatively short price no doubt, but she will be very hard to beat in this small field given she is guaranteed to handle conditions.

Any price bigger than evens seems fair enough, and she should win.

2.05 Perth: Guardia Top at 13-2 with William Hill

This filly has to be backed at the 13-2 that is available as she has a host of things in her favour.

This is her second start over fences and on her debut at Market Rasen, she jumped well but was ridden too aggressively and failed to see out he two-mile, five furlong trip.

Now back at two miles, she is sure to do a lot better. She has the four-year-old sex allowance, which gives her an edge, and she may get her own way out in front.

She was a decent hurdler as she was placed in a Listed hurdle at Doncaster and she looks to have a decent future over fences. This is quite a strong race, but she is worth siding with at 13-2.

3.00 Goodwood: Native Tribe at 5-2 with 888Sport

Native Tribe produced a career best last time out

Having been gelded, Native Tribe produced a career-best performance at Sandown last time out when finishing second to Star Of Wins.

Now that he is back on track, there may be more to come from this lightly-raced son of Faarh.

He has never encountered conditions as soft as what he will face on Sunday, but his sire relished testing conditions and Native Tribe may improve for the conditions.

He also promises to stay further than this mile and a quarter which will be an asset on ground which stamina will be tested.

He is trading at 5-2 with 888Sport, which is a decent price.

3.35 Goodwood: Snazzy Jazzy at a general 100-30

This horse is 100-30 with a number of firms and I believe that conditions will enable him to reverse recent Haydock form with D’Bai.

They meet each other on the same terms but there was only three quarters of a length between them at Haydock and these conditions will suit my selection much better.

On his previous start, he was a very good second on heavy ground and five of his six career wins have come on ground described as soft or heavy.

Seven furlongs under these conditions is ideal for him and he looks sure to go close, so he is good value at 100-30 as I think he will go off at a much shorter price.
