Drumfire fits the bill to nail profitable first-four finish; Spreadbetting.

Byline: James Pyman

Drumfire 2.10 Goodwood Buy at 7 on index Mark Johnston has claimed two of the last nine runnings of this 1m2f handicap, while class has often been a factor as four of the previous nine winners carried 9st 5lb or more. Drumfire fits the bill on both fronts and, when you consider that he finished fourth in Group 3 company at Sandown three starts ago, he is feasibly handicapped off a mark of 107.

In fact, he was third in a Group 3 over course and distance in September, so we know he will be suited by conditions today, and he has decent claims of finishing in the first four which would put buyers in profit. Finjaan 3.25 Goodwood Buy at 9 on index Favourite Main Aim looks rock-solid but his main market rivals J J The Jet Plane and Ouqba might be vulnerable in this Group 2 over 7f, so it could be worth chancing Finjaan to bounce back to form.

If Finjaan finishes in the first three you make a profit and Marcus Tregoning's three-year-old won at this meeting 12 months ago.

He showed his liking for this specialist trip by finishing an unlucky third in last season's Dewhurst Stakes, and if back to his best, can be a force at this level.
