The fillies’ maiden at Deauville doesn’t look the strongest of races on paper and at the prices, I’m taking a chance on Goodness on her seasonal reappearance.

She looked a work in progress in three starts last term, racing too freely on her first two outings, but ran well in a first-time hood to finish third at ParisLongchamp on her final outing in October.  She would have finished even closer with a clear run that day, and while the form is nothing special, it is enough to give her a good chance in this.

A scopey filly, she looks the type to progress this year and her sire does get plenty of useful fillies.

RECOMMENDED BET: 3.00pm Deauville – Goodness ew @ 8-1 (various)
