Runners & Riders – Thursday 1st August

The Steeple Times reintroduces its horse racing tips with an analysis of the top tipsters and their selections for Glorious Goodwood and Nottingham

With most civilised weather expected throughout the day and after witnessing the talented Franny Norton ridden Sir Ron Priestley storm across the finishing line yesterday at Goodwood, today we reintroduce our racing tips section.


Obvious Options

Bet to win if you want to bet big on:


2.15pm Nottingham – Spiritofthenorth at 2/1 (tipped by Guardian, Daily Telegraph and The Times).


2.25pm Goodwood – Threat at 7/4 (tipped by Guardian, The Times, Radio 4 and Daily Telegraph).


3pm Goodwood – Constantinople at 9/4 (tipped by Guardian and Racing Post).


Dark Horse

We’re looking at each way bets on:


3.35pm Goodwood – “Exceptionally bred” (according to the Racing Post) Sir Michael Stoute trained Sun Maiden at 18/1 (tipped by Radio 4).


5.20pm Goodwood – The brilliantly named, Andrew Balding trained Pass The Gin at 9/1. “Seems to handle most ground; 2lb rise not excessive and she shouldn’t be far away,” according to the Racing Post).
