The Messenger previews Goodwood on Thursday and he has one bet which is God Given in the Lillie Langtry Stakes.
Goodwood 2.25: God Given
A progressive filly, God Given has long given the impression she will improve for a step up in trip and she gets the opportunity to try 14f for the first time this afternoon.
She took four attempts to get off the mark in maiden company, but once she did win at Haydock last June, she has barely taken a backward step since. Her next two starts saw her land a listed contest and then Group 3 over 12f on soft going.
Her form this season has all been on faster ground – and she has proven just as adept on a quick surface. Having needed her first run she landed another Group 3 at Haydock in gutsy fashion and was then just beaten on the nod at this level at the same track last time. A prominent racer, her galloping style should see her to maximum effect at this longer distance.
