Timeform pick out their best back, lay and smart stat bets on Sunday…
“…he's almost certainly still ahead of the handicapper…”
Timeform on Country
Country – 15:00 Goodwood
Country is improving bit by bit and again did no more than was required (value extra) when landing a hat-trick on handicap debut at Redcar last time, so he's almost certainly still ahead of the handicapper despite a 5 lb rise. All of the remainder have some sort of chance, but the well-bred Joyful Mission probably has the most potential amongst them.
Spanish Aria – 16:45 Goodwood
Spanish Aria is normally well found in the market, but has managed to get his head in front only once, and is worth opposing again with some interesting types in opposition, perhaps none more so than handicap debutante Alemagna. She remains a maiden, but has showed progression in each of her three starts so far, and rates the type to improve further now handicapping from a fair opening mark.
Solid Stone – 16:35 Yarmouth
32% – Ryan Moore's strike rate at YARMOUTH
Solid Stone looked a handicapper to follow when winning on his return in a notoriously competitive race at Newmarket in April, but he disappointed on his next two starts, before resuming his progress on his first start at a mile when runner-up at Sandown last month, pulling clear of the remainder. He could have more to offer at this trip and is worth siding with under Ryan Moore, who does well at this track.
