Great Ambassador and Popmaster line up today
We have a reasonably quiet weekend with two runners. Our final runner of the week at the Goodwood meeting is the much loved Great Ambassador in the Steward's Cup. I can’t wait to see him run in this race although I would love the ground to be a bit quicker and the draw to be a bit higher. However, I think he is capable of overcoming both of these obstacles and we have the services of a brilliant and very in-form jockey in William Buick.
Popmaster makes the trip up to Doncaster for the 4.02pm Handicap. He seems in great form and looks a picture of health. He should have won last time he went here and also ran a super race at Newmarket last time out but just didn’t quite have the cover and targets which I think he really requires to be at his best. He is capable of winning a race like this although there are some horses in form in opposition but he is definitely still on an upward curve.
Best of luck to all owners today. Pictured below is Popmaster, owned by Laurence Bellman.
