COX MULLS GOODWOOD OPTIONS FOR BEACON LODGE

SUPERB ENTRY OF 41 FOR totesport.com CELEBRATION MILE


Trainer Clive Cox is considering letting Beacon Lodge take his chance against some of the season’s top milers in the £300,000 Group One BGC Sussex Stakes, highlight of the second day of Glorious Goodwood on Wednesday, July 29.

The progressive four-year-old colt gave the Lambourn handler a first Group success when winning the Group Three Horris Hill Stakes at Newbury in October, 2007, and relished the step up to mile on his latest start in a Group Three contest at Chantilly on June 14, when he showed a devastating turn of foot to win by three lengths.


Cox revealed: “We have kept Beacon Lodge in the BGC Sussex Stakes and it is certainly an option for him at the moment. If the ground is not too firm, then he’s definitely a possibility for the race.

“We were very happy with his Group Three success in France and he obviously took the step up to a mile very well. There was a good pace in that race and it turned into a very good test of the trip.


“He’s confirmed that he gets the trip well and we will keep him at a mile now. He would need conditions to be in his favour ground-wise to take his chance in the BGC Sussex Stakes, so we are still sitting on the fence a bit for that very reason.”

This year’s BGC Sussex Stakes is set to be a fascinating clash of the generations over a mile, with 1000 Guineas heroine and Coronation Stakes winner Ghanaati among the potential 24 contenders and taking on older horses for the first time.

Other possible runners from the Classic crop include Eclipse Stakes runner-up Rip Van Winkle, Prix Jean Prat victor Lord Shanakill and Delegator, who was second in both the 2000 Guineas and the St James’s Palace Stakes.


The older generation will be well represented by the likes of July Cup runner-up Main Aim, Forgotten Voice, who was an impressive winner of the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot, and Paco Boy, successful in the Group Two Betfair Cup at Glorious Goodwood last year before going on to Group One glory in the Prix de la Foret and the Queen Anne Stakes at this year’s Royal Ascot.


Beacon Lodge may also contest the £100,000 totesport.com Celebration Mile, run at Goodwood on Saturday, August 29, after a total of 41 entries for the Group Two contest were revealed today.


Cox added: “We have also given Beacon Lodge an entry in the totesport.com Celebration Mile and the race is another option but the ground would once again be the deciding factor.

“I think that he’s definitely a Group Two horse and it is just a question of whether we go for a Group One race like the BGC Sussex Stakes, where he would need things to go his way, or wait for another option such as the totesport.com Celebration Mile.”

A dozen entries for the totesport.com Celebration Mile come from the Godolphin operation and include recent acquisitions Delegator and Evasive, Dubai Duty Free winner Gladiatorus and Rio De La Plata, who landed the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood in 2007 but has not been in action since coming third in the Prix Jean Prat in July of last year.


Aidan O’Brien is responsible for seven of the eight Irish-trained entries including Rip Van Winkle and Westphalia, who was third in both the Poule d’Essai des Poulains and the Prix du Jockey Club. The other potential Irish contender is the Kevin Prendergast-trained Recharge, who was fourth in the Irish 2,000 Guineas and fifth in the Irish Derby.

Two entries from the stable of Mike de Kock include J J The Jet Plane, who could step up in distance after coming fourth in the Golden Jubilee Stakes and third in the July Cup over six furlongs. The South African trainer may also be represented by dual Grade Two winner Imbongi, who was third to Aqlaam and Confront in the Group Two Summer Mile at Ascot on July 11.

Other notable entries include Forgotten Voice, Italian Group One scorer Pressing, last season’s Prix Morny runner-up Gallagher and Pipedreamer, who landed a Group Two contest at York in July last year and has won on both his previous appearances at Goodwood.


Glorious Goodwood, which runs from Tuesday, July 28, to Saturday, August 1 inclusive, features five days of outstanding racing action at one of the world’s most beautiful racecourses.





TANGO HAS THE X-FACTOR AHEAD OF THE SKY BET YORK STAKES



Stars from TV's X-Factor will entertain the crowds after racing on Sky Bet Day at York on Saturday, July 25, but trainer Roger Teal believes his stable lynchpin Steele Tango has more than enough star quality to dazzle in the £100,000 Group Two Sky Bet York Stakes (3.10pm).


Teal is eyeing the extended 10-furlong contest and revealed this morning: "Steele Tango is in fantastic form at present, he has come out of the Eclipse really well so I'm going to give him an entry in the Sky Bet York Stakes. I just watched him come up the gallops and he's bouncing.


"York should suit him well as it's a good galloping track. The short straight, at somewhere like Ascot, isn't really to his liking because it does take him a bit of time to find top gear. The longer run-in at York will be ideal and it's a nice, level, flat track."

Steele Tango has progressed from handicap grade to Group races in the past year and ran a good race to be fifth of 10 behind the brilliant Sea The Stars in the Group One Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on July 4.


The four-year-old has been knocking on the door in Group races this term and was less than three lengths behind Cima De Triomphe and Conduit - and only a length behind last year's Sky Bet Stakes winner Pipedreamer - in the 10-furlong Group Three Brigadier Gerard Stakes in May.

That run was followed by his only disappointing effort of the campaign in the mile and a half Group Two Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot, when eighth to Bronze Cannon.


Teal continued: "We've thrown him in at the deep end and he has never let me down. There's a Group One race in him and one day it will go his way. When he gets his conditions, there's definitely a nice race in him.


"He just needs a bit of decent ground - to be fair, he hasn't had his ground all year. He just wants genuinely nice good ground, perhaps just on the soft side of good. He wouldn't want it too slow but we're always having good to firm and that's not what he wants."

"You can forget the Hardwicke Stakes because that was a mess. He bashed himself up in the stalls. He ran well over a mile and a half at Ascot in May when he was third to Duncan, but he was a little bit confused by the pace of the race that day - he was used to going a little bit quicker over 10 furlongs. When he went back there for Royal Ascot there was a real fast pace and he ran a bit too free. I think he will get 12 furlongs and in the latter part of the year we will step him back up again.


"We are also looking at the Group Three Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock two weeks later so we'll examine at the entries for York and consider both options."

The Sky Bet York Stakes over 10 furlongs and 88 yards is also on the radar of trainer Mark Johnston, who is looking to saddle Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes hero Jukebox Jury. The three-year-old, runner-up in the Group One Racing Post Trophy last term, was one place and half a length behind Steele Tango when sixth in the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown last time.


As part of the racecourse's two-day Music Showcase Weekend, the X-Factor singing stars will perform around the racecourse on Saturday, July 25, at the conclusion of the fantastic seven-race card, sponsored exclusively by Sky Bet.


The X-Factor contestants Eoghan, Austin, Laura and Ruth take centre stage after racing at 5.40pm on the back of a sell-out nationwide arena tour. The extravaganza concludes at 7.10pm.


Since establishing itself at York in 2006, the Sky Bet York Stakes over 10 furlongs has attracted runners from the top stables in Britain and Ireland with trainers Sir Michael Stoute, Saeed bin Suroor and John Gosden proving successful.


Pipedreamer justified market support when winning the Sky Bet York Stakes as the 2/1 favourite in 2008 for Gosden. The colt had finished third in both the Group One Eclipse Stakes and Group One Prince Of Wales's Stakes prior to his victory over Godolphin's Campanologist on the Knavesmire.

Godolphin and Suroor scored in 2007 with Stage Gift, who defeated subsequent Group One Hong Kong Cup winner Eagle Mountain, representing Irish champion trainer Aidan O'Brien. The inaugural running in 2006 went to the Stoute-trained Best Alibi who landed the odds as 2/5 favourite.


Also featured on the exciting seven-race card is the £50,000 Sky Bet Dash Heritage Handicap (3.45pm). The race is one of the season's most compelling six-furlong handicaps and often produces a winner destined for success in the higher echelons of the sport.


That was the case last season when the Karl Burke-trained Lesson In Humility fended off Tombi to take the glory. The Mujadil filly won a Goodwood Listed race next time out and landed the Group Three Ballyogan Stakes in June this year before finishing third in the Group One Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.


Kicking off the fantastic day's racing is the £10,500 Skypoker.com Nursery (2.05pm) over five furlongs, followed by the £15,000 Skybet.com EBF Fillies' Handicap, run over 10 furlongs at 2.35pm.


At 4.15pm, a field of promising maidens line up for the £10,300 Skyvegas.com Median Auction Maiden over six furlongs, while at 4.50pm the £14,000 Sky Bet Supporting The Yorkshire Racing Festival Handicap sees seasoned stayers battle it out over two miles. The day concludes with the seven-furlong Skybingo.com Handicap (5.25pm), worth £10,000.


Sky Bet Day at York, part of the Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival, is the second day of York's Music Showcase Weekend meeting that commences on Friday, July 23. Friday's action, York's only evening fixture of the season, includes the Listed EBF Lyric Stakes (7.30pm) and the Sky Bet Supporting The Yorkshire Racing Festival Claiming Stakes (8pm).


Friday evening's entertainment concludes with music from the tribute act, Rollin' Clones.



STARS RIDING HIGH IN LATEST CARTIER RACING AWARDS STANDINGS


Sea The Stars (128 points) continued his flirtation with greatness at Sandown Park on July 4 with a thrilling triumph in the Group One Coral-Eclipse. Yet despite the brilliant colt surging to a clear points lead in the race to be crowned Cartier Horse of the Year and champion Cartier Three-Year Old Colt, a raft of tremendous displays from his pursuers mean that there is still all to play for in the quest for these two coveted accolades.

The Cartier Racing Awards, now in their 19th year, are horseracing’s equivalent of the Oscars and are determined by points earned in Pattern races combined with the opinions of a panel of racing journalists, as well as votes from readers of the Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph.


European horseracing’s most prestigious accolades will be presented during a glittering ceremony before invited guests at Claridge’s Hotel in Mayfair, London, on Tuesday, November 17, 2009.


Sea The Stars, the first horse to win the stanjames.com 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and Investec Derby at Epsom Downs since 1989 when Nashwan completed the same Classic double, was widely expected to add to his haul in the Group One Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at the Curragh on June 28. However, rain-softened ground prompted trainer John Oxx to redraw his plans for the Cape Cross colt.

It was left to the Aidan O’Brien-trained Fame And Glory, runner-up at Epsom, to uphold the form of the English Classic in the Irish equivalent. The imposing Montjeu colt did not disappoint as he stormed to an impressive five-length triumph over Golden Sword and took his Cartier points accumulation to 88.

The Curragh’s loss was clearly Sandown Park’s gain. Fully 20 years had passed since Nashwan added the Coral-Eclipse to his Classic victories and Sea The Stars was attempting to succeed where others had failed. Erhaab, Benny The Dip, Motivator and Authorized, Derby winners all, could not add the 10-furlong showpiece to their Epsom triumphs.

Sea The Stars made no mistake as he emulated Nashwan’s formidable achievement in the style we have come to expect. After travelling smoothly throughout, he dug deep and asserted, holding Rip Van Winkle by a length with Grade One Breeders’ Cup Turf hero Conduit fully four and a half lengths further adrift in third.


The Derby winner is now 32 points ahead of nearest challengers Mastercraftsman and Ghanaati in the Cartier Horse of the Year standings. Sea The Stars and Mastercraftsman are also the front two in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt category, with Fame And Glory in third and Prix du Jockey Club winner Le Havre sitting fourth (72).


After the inspiring victories of Sea The Stars and Fame And Glory, it was the turn of Investec Oaks heroine Sariska to put her reputation on the line in the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh on July 12. Michael Bell’s charge, owned and bred by Lady Bamford, had seen off Midday by a head at Epsom, despite running around in front, and that rival was out to avenge the defeat.

Sent off the even money favourite, Sariska was expected to confirm herself the superior middle distance filly but few could have imagined the Pivotal three-year-old would produce such a display of complete dominance as she delivered at the Curragh.


Sariska travelled supremely throughout the race, cruising to the lead past toiling rivals. Her rider, Jamie Spencer, did not move as the filly crossed the line at least three lengths clear, having never approached top gear. She now has 81 points and sits second in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly category behind Ghanaati. Prix de Diane heroine Stacelita (64) is third, one place ahead of Poule d’Essai des Pouliches winner Elusive Wave (62).

Another filly, Fleeting Spirit, announced her claims for Cartier Awards recognition during the Champagne Lanson July Festival at Newmarket on July 10. Jeremy Noseda’s charge had run Australian speedster Scenic Blast (32) to three quarters of a length when second in the Group One King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot and comprehensively turned the tables on that rival with a heart–stopping success in the Group One Darley July Cup over an extra furlong.


Fleeting Spirit veered left and then right, hampering rivals in the process, before stretching out for a length and a quarter victory over Main Aim. Tom Queally’s mount survived a stewards’ enquiry to leap to the head of the Cartier Sprinter Award standings with 64 points.

Paco Boy flew home in the Darley July Cup to finish fourth and the top-class miler now has 58 points. That places him third behind Fleeting Spirit and Vision D’Etat (84) in the Older Horse category.


The juvenile scene is beginning to take shape now that we have hit high summer and the Clive Brittain-trained Misheer (24) stormed to the head of the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly standings with a comprehensive victory over Albany Stakes winner Habaayib (16) in the Group Two Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes on July 8. Misheer had previously chased home Jealous Again (16) in the Group Two Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot.


Five horses are currently inseparable on 16 points in the Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt division. Canford Cliffs was impressive when winning the Group Two Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, while Radiohead appeared exceptionally tough and speedy when surviving interference to win the Group Two Norfolk Stakes at the same meeting. The O’Brien-trained Alfred Nobel won the Group Two Railway Stakes at the end of June. The Champagne Lanson July Festival also showcased a pair of exciting juvenile colts as the Brian Meehan-trained Arcano carried the Sangster colours to victory in the Group Two TNT July Stakes, while Silver Grecian gave trainer John Ryan a first Pattern race success when showing a fine turn of foot to win the Group Two Meydan Superlative Stakes.


There is no change in the Cartier Stayer Award standings with the great Yeats (48) leading Patkai (40) and Geordieland (28).


Harry Herbert, Cartier’s racing consultant, commented today: “This really is turning out to be a summer of incredible highlights. Sea The Stars is the embodiment of what the Cartier Racing Awards are all about. A dual Classic winner, he has now stamped his authority over his elders by winning the Coral-Eclipse and in doing so overcame a 20-year hoodoo that has haunted Derby winners in that particular race.


“Saying that, he is not alone in his excellence. The sight of Sariska toying with her rivals in the Darley Irish Oaks was spine-tingling stuff and the prospect of Michael Bell’s filly taking on Sea The Stars and Fame And Glory later in the season is extremely exciting.


“Ascot’s King George meeting sponsored by Betfair and Glorious Goodwood are just around the corner and I am sure we are destined to witness plenty more heroics at the Royal course and on the Downs.

“Yeats is hopefully heading for the Coutts Goodwood Cup and the likes of Ghanaati, Rip Van Winkle and Paco Boy are potentially going to lock horns in the BGC Sussex Stakes.”
