As Glorious Goodwood draws to a close for another year, the horse racing NAP of the Day on Saturday, 30 July for SportsLens tipsters is Emily Dickinson. She steps back up in trip but down in grade for the 1m 6f Group 2 Lillie Langtry Stakes there this afternoon (2:45). This Aidan O’Brien trained Irish raider is a strong fancy at fabulous 5/2 odds here.
An eye-catching runner-up over this distance on her previous start, Emily Dickinson belongs to powerful horse racing owner Mrs John Magnier of the Coolmore set. She has the stamina needed for this test. This three-year-old is our horse racing NAP of the Day as a result.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Emily Dickinson win?
A daughter of Dubawi out of Irish Oaks heroine Chicquita, Emily Dickinson has plenty of stamina on the dam side of her purple pedigree. Her reappearance run when fifth at Leopardstown was a particularly strong maiden that has thrown up all sorts of winners. Those include the Cheshire Oaks heroine Thoughts Of June and Prix Saint-Alary scorer Above The Curve.
It was no surprise when Emily Dickinson landed her next start and returned at 11/10 on the best betting sites at Naas. Although then only fifth in the Lingfield Oaks Trial next time out, she had a tender ride from Ryan Moore with the future in mind. She then made Roscarberry, the third past the post in the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes previously, pull out all the stops to win a Group 3 over today’s trip at Leopardstown.
Emily Dickinson looked all stamina and went down by a short-head after a strong challenge throughout the final furlong. The front two pulled almost four lengths clear of the Stanerra Stakes field according to the race result that day. It’s also worth noting that owner-stable companion Lily Pond dropped down in distance and landed a Group 2 on her next start.
Our horse racing NAP of the Day looks tailor made for this trip
This is strong Emerald Isle form that Emily Dickinson brings to Goodwood races today, then, and she was far from disgraced in Classic company last time out. While she couldn’t emulate her dam and land the Irish Oaks, she ran on into fourth when daylight finally appeared and saw out the race strongly behind Royal Ascot winner Magical Lagoon. Off the back of that effort, she looks well worth another crack at 1m 6f.
It’s also significant that Emily Dickinson holds an entry in the St Leger. At the time of writing, horse racing betting sites have her at 25/1 for the long-distance Doncaster Classic in September. If she wins the Lillie Langtry, getting 12lb weight for age from all bar one rival here, then those odds should tumble.
There have been plenty of St Leger ante post betting movers and shakers at Goodwood this week. Emily Dickinson is another and our horse racing NAP of the Day on 30 July. A £10 punt at her current price with 888Sport returns £35 if she can go one better than her penultimate start over a trip which promises to suit.
