10/5/2019 McEvoy to have two in Goodwood

Tony McEvoy will launch a two-pronged attack on The Goodwood, with consistent mare Cool Passion (Not A Single Doubt) and progressive sprinter Despatch (Written Tycoon) carrying the dual-state trainer’s hopes. Cool Passion was runner-up to Spright in the TAB Classic last start, while Despatch landed the DC McKay Stakes (Gr 3, 1100m) by a long neck, cementing the four year-old’s place in Saturday’s $750,000 race. "She gave a great sight," McEvoy said of Cool Passion’s last-start performance. "I think the ground was probably a little bit inferior that late in the day on the inside and she led. If she can have something to follow it would be better but nothing wanted to lead and Barend Vorster rode her nicely throughout the race. Spright ran an incredible race, but I thought my mare was fantastic."

In early betting markets, Cool Passion and Despatch are both $9 each, check out the latest Goodwood betting markets.
