Today's Goodwood tips: Seven races to savour at Goodwood on Wednesday afternoon.

Having tipped up three winners on Tuesday, Nick Seddon runs through the card on Day Two of Glorious Goodwood, which is headlined by a red hot renewal of the Group 1 Sussex Stakes...

13:10 - EBF Fillies' Handicap 

It's difficult to look past Waliyak, who arrives here after an excellent effort to finish second in what looked a warm renewal of the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot last month. Indeed, the winner has since won a listed race over in France, and Waliyak could prove to be well-treated under a 3 lb rise. There should be more to come from her yet on just her second start in this sphere, and this looks a good opportunity for her to pick up a second career success - in receipt of weight from the field. Ghaziyah proved progressive as a three-year-old last year and would be dangerous if ready to go after an absence, while the in-form Nkosikazi is another to consider.

13:45 - Unibet You're On Goodwood Handicap 

A wide-open handicap for the stayers, in which a large number of the 16-runner field are worthy of consideration. Several arrive here on the back of good runs at the Royal meeting, including Coeur De Lion and Summer Moon, who were first and third respectively in the Ascot Stakes, but face higher marks here. The Grand Visir was successful in that Ascot race 12 months ago, and is another to consider here after finishing a solid third in the Queen Alexandra Stakes last time, though this is tougher now switched back to handicap company.

Oleg represents Paul Nicholls and can't be discounted after game wins the last twice, though this can go the way of True Destiny. He was an upwardly mobile type last year, winning three times over staying trips, before finishing a narrow third in this race. He stayed on well to finish third in the Marsh Cup at Newbury last time out, and bearing in mind that he should arrive here fit now, and that there should be a sufficient pace on up front, he can take advantage of a mark that's just 4 lb higher than last year by taking this.

14:15 - Unibet 3 Boosts A Day Handicap 

Another tricky-looking handicap, this time for the three-year-olds over a mile and a half. Carlos Felix cost an eye-watering amount as a two-year-old last year, and while he's rather proven to be something of a slow burner, everything came together when winning over this trip at Ascot last time. There should be more to come from him yet, though he may need improvement under a 10 lb rise, and it could be worth taking him on with Encipher.

He's looked useful so far, showing plenty of ability in two starts as a juvenile, and was only thwarted by a neck on reappearance over a mile and a quarter at Newbury last month. He was flying too high for just his fourth outing in the Dante Stakes at York most recently, but he's bred to be smart, and is interesting now switched into handicap company off an opening mark of 98 - with the extra two furlongs likely to suit. Meanwhile, the progressive pair of Win O'Clock and Glenties were successful last time out and can't be discounted under small rises in the weights.

14:45 - Molecomb Stakes 

An intriguing renewal of the Molecomb Stakes, which is a Group 3 contest over five furlongs for two-year-olds. Significantly heads the market here despite still being a maiden after three starts, though he was unlucky not to win a listed contest at Sandown having travelled sweetly and he'd be dangerous under a more forceful ride. It's interesting to see Colin Keane booked on the Irish raider Steel Bull, who won well on debut over this trip at Naas last week and he is respected, but it looks worth siding with the filly Sardinia Sunset. She's shown some pretty smart form so far, finishing fourth in the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes at the Royal meeting last month, and she backed that up with a game success in a listed contest at York earlier this month. The form of those efforts put her right into the mix for this, and she looks the way to go at the prices.

15:15 - Sussex Stakes 

This looks likely to be the race of the week, as some smart colts from the classic generation clash with their elders. The four-year-old Circus Maximus sets the standard on the back of his game win in last month's Queen Anne Stakes, though he looks vulnerable conceding 8 lb to his younger rivals - and he will have to confirm that form with Mohaather, who looked unlucky that day and has since bolted up in a Group 2 contest at Ascot.

Siskin arrives here unbeaten after winning last month's Irish 2000 Guineas, though he will likely need a career best to outdo fellow Guineas winner Kameko. The form of his Newmarket win is right up there as the strongest on offer, and forgiving him his run in the Epsom Derby, he can return to winning ways at a trip that's much more to his liking. Meanwhile, Newmarket runner-up Wichita looks the main pace angle and can't be discounted as the lively outsider of five, having run well at Royal Ascot last time out.

15:45 - EBF Fillies' Conditions Stakes 

Only the six runners for our penultimate contest, but this is highly-competitive, with five of the six-strong field arriving here with a win under their belts. Furlong Factor has made five starts already and is a useful type, holding her own in listed contests the last twice, while Pelekai would be interesting if handed a similar ride to the one which saw her seal an all-the-way win on debut last month.

Spright showed plenty of speed to get off the mark at York last time and is respected, but Miss Jingles makes the most appeal for her top connections. She's bred to have plenty of speed being related to plenty of winners over sprint trips, and took a firm step forward to get off the mark at Sandown last time out. She's given the impression that she's still very much learning on the job, and it would be no surprise should she take another sizeable step forward this afternoon.

16:20 - Theo Fennell Handicap 

We close Wednesday's card with a painstakingly difficult 20-runner handicap over seven furlongs, and a case can be made for several. Both Society Lion and Mottrib are upwardly-mobile three-year-olds and are respected, while the in-form pair of Mountain Brave and Arigato cant be discounted, but it could be worth chancing Dirty Rascal each-way at a double-figure price.

Low draws are a big advantage at Goodwood, which he has here in stall four, and while he's yet to fire in three starts so far this year, he's back down to the mark which saw him win this last year for Richard Hannon. Tom Marquand is back on board - as he was 12 months ago - and he could well take a step forward on these terms now returned to a track he favours.
