Andrew Balding: Khalifa Sat brings some solid form to the table
The Betway ambassador previews his three runners on day three of Glorious Goodwood, including Epsom Derby standout Khalifa Sat.
A quick run over 5f on fast ground should be right up Spanish Angel’s street.
He ran better than his finishing position would suggest last time out at Yarmouth, and I’m hopeful he’ll run his race here.
He’s run well at Goodwood in the past, too.
Khalifa Sat ran a cracking race in the Derby - we were absolutely thrilled with him finishing second.
He brings solid form to the table and was impressive when he won at Goodwood in the Cocked Hat on his seasonal comeback.
Make no mistake though, this is a proper race that has the Bahrain Trophy winner, Al Aasy, and English King, who was just behind us in the Derby, plus a couple of other challengers.
We have our fingers crossed he can perform to a similar level that he showed at Epsom.
Calcutta Cup runs in the Nursery and he’s a horse I like.
He ran a decent race in a strong maiden at Newbury last time out, and I think 77 is a fair mark for him.
He’s had a couple of runs now and, all being well, he has a sporting chance of hitting the frame.
