The Stewards Cup, fiercely competitive as ever, holds magnetic appeal for punters at Goodwood today (3.40) and GEORGE BOWEN and LAKE VOLTA, trained by sharp operators Richard Fahey and Mark Johnston respectively, both have strong each way prospects at attractive odds.
George Bowen was fifth in this race last year with the Dark Angel gelding coming home strongly having been out with the washing early doors. He has plenty of talent and a sharp turn of foot at the business end. The strong pace in these big field handicaps really suit as he can build up a head of steam and then unleash his lethal finishing kick.
He was really at home on the all weather this season, with his strong finishing second to Kachy in the Sprint Championship Stakes Final a particularly notable effort. His recent turf form has been nothing to write home about, but no doubt Fahey has had this race in mind for some time and he should be competitive off a mark of 102. Track, trip and ground all suit, he is drawn high in 25 which should help as the pace horse Ornate will most likely steer a middle course from stall 15. There's every chance that George Bowen will improve on his respectable placing in this last year.
Lake Volta won over track and trip earlier in the season and in behind that day was an old friend of ours Tis Marvellous who romped home in a hot race over five furlongs at Ascot. Lake Volta loves the prevailing fast ground, and has twice scored over seven furlongs so hopefully Joe Fanning will have him up with the pace and we know he will certainly see out this trip.
He ran well in the Bunbury Cup behind stablemate Vale Of Kent who ran a blinder in the Golden Mile yesterday. Mark Johnston runners invariably bounce back from below par runs and dropping down in trip now should suit Lake Volta.
It's hard to rule anything out in this, particularly as the last two winners were priced at 20/1 and 25/1. Of the shorter ones in the market Khaadem, Gunmetal and Flavius Titus clearly command respect, but George Bowen and Lake Volta could give them all plenty to think about.
1/2 Point Each Way Lake Volta (11/1 Skybet 7 places)
1/2 Point Each Way George Bowen (28/1 Skybet paying 7 places)
