Zuba – 4.25 Goodwood (8/1 – bet365)
After spending the winter months tackling hurdles, Zuba is switched back to the flat to tackle the longer distances once again.
The son of Dubawi proves his ability over the smaller obstacles on his final start under the National Hunt code, finishing fourth at Warwick less than three weeks ago.
A recent recruit for Nick Gifford’s yard, the five-year-old had shown some promise at 1m6f under former trainer Amanda Perrett, placing in both of his starts over the distance.
With in-form jockey Hector Crouch in the saddle, the drying ground could well suit the gelding here.
With a price at 8/1, Zuba could push into the top two on his return to flat racing at Goodwood.
