Verdict

Even Bolder and Desert Falls don't win very often and both are better over 5f but Gracie's Games has improved this year and can't be left out of calculations after a fair fourth at Haydock. Witchry and Silvee may be a shade high in the handicap, however, while Memphis Man's wins at Windsor and Salisbury this year have come on fast going. SEAMUS SHINDIG has only managed one win in 10 previous visits to Goodwood but only went down by a nose over C&D earlier this month and may well be capable of defying today's 2lb higher mark under regular pilot Amy Scott.
