Thoughts on Zippy at Goodwood this afternoon.

May 21, 2016

Zippy runs in 5.45 at Goodwood this afternoon (Saturday, May 21st). Jimmy Fortune teams up with the filly in the seven furlong maiden. Zippy made an encouraging start to her career as a two year old when staying on nicely once getting the hang of the game towards the end of the race over six furlongs at Leicester. She had a bit of a bug in the spring hence the slight delay in getting her three year old campaign underway. The step up ought to suit her and the only real negative is the very wide draw in stall 13 of 15.

The race has an open look to it with a field packed full of lightly raced fillies and the main dangers look to be Sweet Dragon Fly and Nightingale Valley who both showed potential on debut and should take another step forward here.
