Goodwood 2.25, Wednesday, August 2

glorious goodwoodAlthough still not fully exposed, On To Victory has improved since being gelded last October. Following a facile, 8-length win in a 0-95 contest at Salisbury two starts ago, the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding failed by just a neck and short head to defy a 6lb penalty in a similar race at Newbury eights days later. In fact, Eve Johnson Houghton’s three-year-old was probably the ‘moral’ victor on that occasion because, not only was the ground as fast as he’d want it, but the muddling pace was against him, too.

The handicapper has inevitably had his say, such that On To Victory steps up into 0-105 company off a 4lb higher mark than at Newbury. However, it’s difficult to argue that the weight rise isn’t justified and, back on slightly slower ground with a more generous pace to run at, On To Victory looks a decent bet to resume winning ways.
