2.10 Goodwood – Trawlerman – WON 6/1

A notebook horse from Newmarket last time when stepped up to a more suitable trip, as he’s bred for stamina. Sent off joint Fav for the Duke of Edinburgh handicap at Royal Ascot, having won at Chelmsford the time before, he simply got no run at the Royal Meeting until the race was over, and stayed on without threatening under a tender hands and heels ride. He stepped up to this trip for the first time at Newmarket and again endured a troubled passage, without being able to show his true ability.
It’s very interesting connections have opted to run here as he’s likely to need a penalty to get into the Ebor, so we’ll back him for this handicap as well as for the Ebor at York.
