3.15 Goodwood – Nassau Stakes
The Race Of The Day is based on the most valuable race from Today’s Horse Racing Meetings and we deliver Horse Racing Tips from each blogger to see if we can come to an agreement on a selection. The statistics for today’s Race Of The Day can be seen below, apart from Overall, Month and Day all data supplied is based on either flat or jumps racing depending on the daily race, all odds are based on SP.
We have a new selection process for our bloggers, instead of relying on someone to add the selections we now have an automatic process in which when a blogger has a selection he/she can now add it to the post themselves which means you get the selections as they are ready, this means that the post is now put up without any selections in order for it to be available for the bloggers to add them.
Also because there is not always someone around to edit the post with the selections we will now leave this up to you to work out, it is simple enough, when the stated closing time has passed then you can decided whether there is a bet or not, each runner will have the number of selections next to it and for each pick it is clear then that is a 1pt stake, so a runner with 3 picks and then two runners with 1 pick apiece would be a 2pt win, if there is not outright pick then it is deemed a No Bet. We advised all bets of £10 per tip clear, so a 2pt win would be a £20 win.

Tips Entry for SBB Bloggers closes at 2.00pm
Darylrogerson – Amazing Maria (Selections Post) (1 Picks)
See Daryl’s Selections post for full reasoning and other selections.
Zipster – Narniyn (1 Picks)
Extremely tricky race here in which you could put up a strong case for probably 5 of the 7 runners and I am going to go with the Royer-Dupre runner in Narniyn, a dual G3 winner over in France and put in a decent display in her first G1 race last time out, all starts have come on ground with some cut in it so first attempt on fast ground but breeding suggests she will have no problem with it and the trip is no concern at all. As I say the race is very competitive and could go to any of the runners but my favour is for Narniyn.
jaydubs – Mango Diva (2 Picks)
Mango Diva has encountered fast ground just the three times and winning twice it won a listed event in Salisbury and then lto a group 2 in Ireland. With no rain forecast then it should be favourable conditions for it. Narniyn is unproven on this ground, while Venus de Milo has won over this distance on the firm ground but may be better over further. Amazing Maria has won here twice but unproven over this distance and Sultanina my find this a but tough.
Gecko – Mango Diva (2 Picks)
Winner of 3 of her last 5 and a group 2 and 3 winner as well – looks like this could be her ideal trip too and the ground will be no problem; acts well on this surface and in prime form having won lto when pushed hard
Add in Ryan Moore piloting and this could be a good win for the consistent 4 yr old who looks to have more to come yet
Ramsey Deadman – Sultanina (1 Picks)
It could be another for John Gosden in the Nassau – Temptation is to go with the French raider who’s form is just about the best on offer but we have to assume that it will be transferred to UK shores today and at the price I am not willing to take that chance. Sultanina has plainly been aimed at this race and John Gosden has nothing if not the knack of landing the races he specifically targets. Arguably given a little too much to do last time when the winner flew, she may not have won the race but would have been much closer and can make amends with a famous victory at Goodwood.
