The second day of Newmarket's July Meeting saw Godolphin successful with Noverre in the Group Three TNT July Stakes, one of their rare two-year-old runners in Britain.

The Rahy colt was prominent throughout but it looked as if David Barron's Media Mogul would land the spoils when he came with a strong run inside the final furlong. However, Noverre rallied and managed to prevail by a short-head.

Afterwards trainer David Loder commented: "It suited us better today as he had a lead. In his two runs in France he had to make a lot of his own running which, although he won, didn't really suit him. I don't think he'll ever be the sort of horse that wins by ten lengths." Loder went on to reveal that the his present bunch of two-year-olds are generally still rather immature horses and he said not to expect any fireworks this year.

Elsewhere on the card, the Group Two sportingodds.com Falmouth Stakes went to the Ben Hanbury-trained Alshakr, who led for most of the way, on the rail.

There was some criticism of the Newmarket authorities today as horses drawn on the inside rail appeared to have a very distinct advantage.


Champion jockey Kieren Fallon has revealed that he may miss the rest of the season following the shoulder injury he sustained at Royal Ascot last month.

Fallon stated: "I am having physio on my hand, I haven't had physio on my shoulder yet. It has to stay strapped to my body for another three weeks - that can't be moved - but I'm trying to get the power back in my hand which is coming back now, slowly." Fallon went on to add: "I don't think I'll be back this year. They don't really know. They won't know until they take off the strapping in another three weeks."


This year's William Hill Mile, one of the richest handicaps in Europe with total prize money of £100,000, has received a record total of 83 entries.

Revealed today, Wednesday, July 12, the number of entries for this prestigious mile handicap, run at Goodwood on Thursday, August 3, has increased by 23 compared with the 60 entries last year, and beats the previous best of 74 recorded in 1998.

The weights are headed by Albarahin, who has been allotted 9st 11lb. Marcus
Tregoning's Silver Hawk colt made an excellent seasonal debut when second in a valuable Sandown handicap in early July, having filled the same spot in the Listed Ben Marshall Stakes at Newmarket last October.
Also high in the weights is Siege, on 9st 10lb, trained by Saeed bin Suroor for Godolphin, who has finished second on his only two appearances in handicap company, including in last year's Britannia Handicap. Sheikh Mohammed's racing entity has also entered Maidaan (9st 5lb), who has yet to be seen on a racecourse this season but was only beaten by a head by subsequent Group Two winner Indian Lodge in a Listed race at Newmarket last year.
Last year's William Hill Mile was won by the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Lonesome Dude, and of his three entries for this year's renewal, Caribbean Monarch
has been given 9st 9lb. The Fairy King colt battled heroically to win this year's Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot, before winning another valuable handicap at Sandown earlier this month, and he is joined by stablemates Sharmy (9st), and Secret Agent (8st 5lb).

Another Royal Ascot hero among this season's possibles is El Gran Papa, who John Gosden saddled to win the Britannia Handicap, and the three-year-old has been allotted 8st 1lb. Gosden is responsible for six other William Hill Mile entries, most notably Hymn (8st 9lb), winner of two starts this term, and Strahan (8st 8lb), who finished third in the six-furlong Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot, and will be racing over a mile for the first time if lining up at Goodwood.

Other high-profile entries include Bomb Alaska (9st 8lb), who defeated Albarahin in last year's Listed Ben Marshall Stakes, Showboat (9st 8lb), winner of last season's Royal Hunt Cup, and Pulau Tioman (9st 6lb), who was successful for long-serving Newmarket handler, Michael Jarvis, in the Rosebery Handicap at Kempton in April.
Rod Fabricius, Clerk of the Course and General Manager at Goodwood, said: "This year's record number of entries for the William Hill Mile indicates just how popular the race has become with owners and trainers alike."
David Hood, spokesman for William Hill, said: "William Hill are sponsoring this very competitive race for the third year and once again it will a racing and betting highlight of the Glorious Goodwood meeting."
