MOYNAHAN rarely runs a bad race around here and has been in decent form this season, finishing fourth in better company over this trip at Chepstow last time. Paul Cole's six-year-old doesn't win as often as he should but is very capable at this level and the assessor has given him a real chance today. South Cape is another who reserves his best for Goodwood and could easily step up on some modest efforts recently with Harry Bentley doing the steering. Fastnet Storm can be difficult to peg back if allowed an easy lead, while Guest Book was second over C&D on Wednesday and can't be ignored if turning out again quickly. Albaqaa, Diesentric and Night Lily are others with decent claims in a tricky end to proceedings on the South Downs.
