Having developed an interest in racing whilst in college some years ago, James has worked in many areas of the industry, including a stint hiding his face on radio! From 2008 until 2017, he ran a successful tipping service and has had shares in numerous horses including the wonderful Fast Shot. Unsurprisingly given some of the horses he has bought shares in, his punting passions lie in sprint handicaps on both the turf and All-Weather surfaces!

Racing tipster James Boyle has picked out three selections for Day 1 at Glorious Goodwood.

1:50pm Goodwood – First Sitting – 1pt win @ 12/1

Course form often proves vital at Goodwood and FIRST SITTING does not lack for that, with two C&D wins in Listed company from three outings here. Following a drop in form after the most recent of those last May, Chris Wall’s 8-year-old finds himself well-treated off a mark of 97 and there were signs that the horse was coming back to something near his peak when only 3-lengths off Setting Sail at Newmarket a month ago. An 11lbs swing at the weights being combined with the return to this venue could see that form turn on its head and with the yard among the winners lately, 12/1 is a big price.

3:00pm Goodwood – Suedois – 1pt win @ 9/1

SUEDOIS has gone a long time between drinks, since landing an American Grade 1 in 2017 to be exact, but David O’Meara’s charge has run a number of big races in defeat including when touched off by a short-head in this race last term. He came into that on the back of a close third in the Summer Mile at Ascot and arrives here having filled the same spot in that contest a couple of weeks ago. With track and trip to suit, ground conditions no problem and first-time cheekpieces to potentially give him a mid-race edge, it would not be a surprise to see the son of Le Harve go one better than he did last year.

4:45pm Goodwood – Koditime – 1pt win @ 12/1

Clive Cox’s yard are in good form with 9 winners from their last 36 runners and KODITIME is a very appealing prospect now faced with a speed-demanding course after two runs at Ascot where he was spotted travelling well for some time before fading out of the equation. That cruising speed can be put to much better use at a venue such as this and he did show his ability was far from gone when fifth in a big field at York on this season’s reappearance. Since then he has fallen 3lbs in the weights to his last winning mark and any double-figured price appeals as being too generous to turn down.
