Goodwood Speed Ratings – 23 May 2015


All eyes are on Goodwood and the 14:55 888Sport Stakes this Saturday (23 May). An incredible £75,000 in prize money has been allocated to this handicap race featuring 11 runners aged three years old. The going is expected to be good.

From the Racing Post’s latest daily speed figures, Percy Alleline is quickest with a 107 rating. However, form is a concern for this horse. Two second-place finishes from six races are not especially convincing.

Although rated slightly lower at 105, Mullionheir is a much more appealing prospect than Percy Alleline. Mullionheir has won three times in its past three races. On the basis of form, the Kieren Fox-ridden Mullionheir has the competitive edge.

Felix Leiter is likely to appeal to some because of its 101 rating and three-straight wins in the form column. However, Felix Leiter has not placed in the top-six for three races now.
