GLORIOUS GOODWOOD 2009
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
FIRST DAY, TUESDAY, JULY 28
BUCKLEY DELIGHTED WITH CONDITIONS AFTER OPENING DAY
Clerk of the Course Seamus Buckley was pleased with the near perfect conditions for the first day of the five-day meeting.
He said: “The course has ridden extremely well and we’ve had nothing but compliments from the jockeys. It’s good ground with a lovely cut in the grass and we’re delighted with conditions.”
Looking ahead to Wednesday, he added: “We’ll have the same conditions for tomorrow. There’s no rain expected overnight but there’s some rain coming through the area mid-afternoon - just after the BGC Sussex Stakes.
“The day has gone very well and we’re very happy.”
The crowd for the first day of the Glorious Goodwood meeting numbered 13,800, which represents a 9.4 per cent decline on an attendance figure of 15,239 on this day in 2008.
This is almost entirely owing to the drop in corporate sales while public sales have held up very well.
FOUR GROUP ONE WINNERS SET TO DO BATTLE IN THE AUDI STAKES
A quartet of highly talented sprinters will contest Thursday’s Group Three Audi Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
Borderlescott, winner of last season’s Nunthorpe Stakes, takes on Equiano and Kingsgate Native, both of whom scored at the highest level at Royal Ascot in 2008, in the King’s Stand and Golden Jubilee Stakes respectively, and they are joined by Gary and Lesley Middlebrook’s’ dual Group One winner Reverence.
Borderlescott has a fine record at Goodwood, having played a leading role in the last three runnings of one of the summer’s hottest sprint handicaps, the bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup. He won the race in 2006 before finishing second the following year and third last season. Now seven, the Robin Bastiman-trained gelding arrives in Sussex on the back of a last-start win in the City Wall Stakes at Chester.
Kingsgate Native last ran at Goodwood as a two-year-old when finishing second to recent July Cup winner Fleeting Spirit in the Betfair Molecomb Stakes. He took on the older horses on his next start, winning the Nunthorpe Stakes at York, and landed his second Group One victory last year in the Golden Jubilee Stakes for trainer John Best. Such credentials naturally made him much sought after as a stallion but after retiring to Cheveley Park Stud in Newmarket, he was found to have fertility issues and returned to training, this time to the Newmarket stable of Sir Michael Stoute.
Equiano has been winless since his King’s Stand victory of last year but hails from the stable of Barry Hills, currently enjoying a highly successful season. The son of Acclamation was formerly trained in Spain and is not the only Mediterranean import as ‘The Greek Freak’, Ialysos, is set to line up for his new trainer Luca Cumani. The five-year-old notched a string of victories in his native Greece before winning a Listed contest on his British debut at Haydock. He has since won the Group Three Coral Charge at Sandown.
Eight-year-old Reverence landed back-to-back Group One wins in the Nunthorpe Stakes and Haydock Sprint Cup in the summer of 2006 and will relish any cut in the ground for Thursday’s engagement.
Among the 18 declared runners, the race also features the 2007 winner Moorhouse Lad, who was runner-up to Marchand d’Or in the Prix de l’Abbaye last October, and Godolphin’s Dandy Man, who was third in last year’s Audi Stakes.
FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES
PAUL GOES THE EXTRA MILE STAKES (HERITAGE HANDICAP)
DRUM STARTS WEEK ON HIGH FOR JOHNSTON
Few trainers have a better record at Glorious Goodwood than Middleham-based Mark Johnston and he kicked off this year’s meeting on the best possible note when Drumfire took the opening Paul Goes The Extra Mile Handicap to give - his 43rd winner at Glorious Goodwood.
The well-backed 8/1 chance held off the fast-finishing Sweet Lightning to score by half a length under Jimmy Fortune.
"It’s great to start the meeting like this - it doesn’t always happen - and let’s hope that it continues,” said Johnston.
"He’s a very crafty horse and he always has been, right back to his two-year-old days. It’s great consolation to win here because this was where he suffered a horrible fall two years ago which put him out for a long time and nearly ended his career.
"He has been running in better company than this and he has had a lot of changes of jockey and changes in trip and it has been hard to see how well he has been running because he has just been falling short of the mark.
"But I had the confidence that he was at the top of his form and I told Jimmy to ride him with confidence and he could be happy that he could cope with this.
"He’s a huge horse and you look at the size and shape of him - my son Charlie said beforehand he defies logic. There are a lot of big plain horses like him that are good and I actually chose him for the owners because he looks like Gateman, who was a very good horse for them, and he was another big plain horse but equally genuine.
"We are very, very strong in our handicaps this year, particularly over the middle distances. We obviously want those horses to win but it would be nice to win in non-handicap company because we are a little bit thin on the ground in that group.
“We’ve been chopping and changing both distance and tactics with him but after his last run at Newmarket over a mile and a half at Newmarket both Nick Robinson (manager of owners Kennet Valley Thoroughbreds) and I independently said let’s go back to a mile and a quarter where it won’t be complicated and get on with the job.
“This is a real tough horse with a turn of foot and I think my other runner William Blake probably just lacked the strength and pace to hold his position. I was asked beforehand which of mine I preferred and I said that while William Blake was in form, Drumfire was the class horse. He’s in the Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes on Friday so we may have a look at that.
“He’s my 100th winner of the turf season whatever that means but for me Holberg in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot was my 100th winner of the year but that went largely unnoticed. This is just some arbitrary championship.”
Jimmy Fortune added: "It’s like sitting on a monster! Even I look small on him and I look big on most horses! He’s a lovely big horse and he took a bit of time to wind up into the race, which is why I sent him home from a long way out. He gallops well and he is a nice horse.
"I think that the ground is slightly on the slow side of good but there is a great covering of grass."
JOCKEYS’ VERDICTS ON THE GROUND AFTER THE FIRST RACE
Dale Gibson, rider of third-placed Royal Destination: “It’s perfect.”
Hayley Turner, rider of Moyenne Corniche: “It’s good.”
Franny Norton, rider of William Blake: “It’s beautiful, good ground.”
Paul Hangan, rider of Unbreak My Heart: “It’s beautiful ground.”
Chris Catlin, rider of Dark Prospect: “It’s perfect ground.”
Martin Dwyer, rider of Sweet Lightning: “The ground’s perfect.”
Graham Gibbons, rider of Blythe Knight: “Good.”
Second race - The Betfair Gordon Stakes
HARBINGER SCOOTS TO SUCCESS
Harbinger lived up to the promise shown when winning his maiden at Chester in May to land todays Betfair Gordon Stakes on only his third start. While his performance in the Group Three 12-furlong race has delighted connections, he is not certain to emulate his stablemate and last year’s winner Conduit in heading to the Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster on September 12.
Trainer Sir Michael Stoute said: “I was highly delighted with that performance because he has had a muscle tear and they do take time. He’’s not an elaborate home-worker so it makes it very difficult to get an edge onto him.
“We got him here as soon as we could but he is not really tuned and there is improvement in him. He has class and he wakes up when he gets to the racecourse.
“He’’s lazy at home but he’’s a lovely horse. I loved the way he travelled and he has a lot of class.
“I have always wondered, looking at the pedigree, whether we have got a St Leger horse here and I wouldn’t be sure - don’t back him yet. He has 30 owners and they need to be consulted but let’s go for the Voltigeur Stakes (at York in August) and then see.”
Winning jockey Ryan Moore said: “I’m really happy with him - he’s got gears. He travelled like the best horse in the race.
“There is more to come from him and the race was very stop-start - it was a real messy race - but he never really lost his rhythm and he travelled there really smoothly. I was in front sooner than I had planned to be but he’’s a very relaxed horse and I was very pleased with him today.”
John Warren, representing Highclere Thoroughbred Racing whose Admiral Rous syndicate owns Harbinger and the man responsible for selecting the son of Dansili as a yearling, added: “When he won at Chester, his time was better than the Derby trial that day so we had an indication that we were dealing with something above average but he doesn’t do much at home so it’s difficult to get a real handle on him.
“I think today has proved that he’s a really nice horse still in the making because Sir Michael said he was likely to need the race. So I think we’ll see some further improvement. I’m not sure how far he’ll stay. He’s not bred to stay farther than he has done today but I guess it depends on the competition and whether the other prospects for the Leger are in the same zone as he is. It wouldn’t be the end of the world if he doesn’t run in it as there are plenty of other nice races for him.”
Harbinger drifted from 6/4 to 4/1 with Betfair before starting at just under7/2.
Harbinger new Leger jolly following Gordon success with totesport
Harbinger is the new 4/1 favourite (from 7/1) for the Ladbrokes St Leger with totesport following an impressive success in the Betfair Gordon Stakes at Goodwood this afternoon.
Later on the card, Manyriverstocross and Precision Break enhanced their claims for the totesport.com Ebor next month with the former just holding on in a thrilling finish to the Deltica Summer Stakes. The sponsors made the winner 20/1 (from 33) for the Ebor with Precision Break also cut to 25/1 (from 33s).

HARBINGER BIDDING TO EXTEND STOUTE’S EXCELLENT WEEK
Last year’s Betfair Gordon Stakes winner, Conduit, is now one of the most talked about horses in training following his victories in the St Leger, Breeders’ Cup Turf and last weekend’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, sponsored by Betfair.
He is one of six victors over the last 25 years of Glorious Goodwood’s acknowledged St Leger trial that have gone on to land the last Classic of the season,the others being Sixties Icon, Millenary, Nedawi, Minster Son and Commanche Run.
Of the nine intended runners in today’s Betfair Gordon Stakes, four horses hold St Leger entries at this stage and will be looking to add their name to this list of champions.
The lightly-raced Harbinger is bidding to give Sir Michael Stoute back-to-back wins in the race and carries the colours of the highly successful Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, whose Admiral Rous syndicate owns the promising colt. The son of Dansili made his debut when running second in the Wood Ditton Stakes at the Craven Meeting in Newmarket. His only other start was at Chester, where he broke his maiden in some style, winning by three lengths under Ryan Moore.
Masterofthehorse, who finished third behind Sea The Stars and Fame And Glory in the Derby, was recently sold from Aidan O’Brien’s stable and he now races for Qatar-based owner Hassan Al Abdul Malik from the Newmarket yard of Debbie Mountain.
Continuing the international flavour is Swindler, who returns to the track after making his debut at Newmarket 384 days ago. He represents Australian owners Mr and Mrs Peter McMahon and Mr and Mrs Rex Gorell, who also race Bucellatti in the UK, both horses being based at Kingsclere with Andrew Balding.
The John Dunlop-trained Tactic broke his maiden here at his local course Goodwood and has since run fourth in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot and finished runner-up to Kite Wood in the Bahrain Trophy at Newmarket. He is one of a handful of exciting runners for leading owner/breeder Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum this week, including the 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes heroine Ghanaati, who is set to line up in tomorrow’s BGC Sussex Stakes.
SECOND RACE PLACED QUOTES
BETFAIR GORDON STAKES (GROUP 3)
FIREBET AND URBAN POET SUFFER FROM “MUDDLING PACE”
Connections of Betfair Gordon Stakes second and third Firebet and Urban Poet both felt their progressive three-year-olds were not helped by the slow early pace in the mile and a half contest.
Firebet’s trainer Richard Fahey said: “We have to be pleased with that run but it was a messy race. When they quickened up, Paul (Hanagan) said he went a bit flat for a bit then stayed on again. The horse relaxed but there was a muddling pace and Paul said he ended up where he didn’t want to be from stall one.
“We’ve gone from a rating of 88 to being second in a Group race and the winner is obviously decent. We’ll look at the Great Voltigeur and I put him in a race at Baden Baden but I’m not sure where we’ll go, it could depend on what the horses do.
“He certainly stays and wasn’t stopping there so could get a bit further.”
Mark Johnston, trainer of Urban Poet, said: “That was a mess of a race and it staggers me that you can have some of the top jockeys in the country playing silly buggers early in the race, going at canter. They should have got on with the job rather than this farcical thing with them all playing cat and mouse.
“We were more than justified in stepping up to this and the favourite won so perhaps that’s how it should have been anyway.”
THIRD RACE WINNING QUOTES
BETFAIR CUP (GROUP 2)
FINJAAN BOUNCES BACK FOR TREGONING
An emotional Marcus Tregoning welcomed back Finjaan after the three-year-old gave him a welcome big-race success in the Group 2 Betfair Cup.
The victory was just the fourth of the year for Tregoning, whose stable has been shut down for six weeks with a virus, and he is now hoping to make hay in the second half of the season.
“It’s lovely to win here, this has always been our Ascot,” said Tregoning. “My predecessor Dick Hern was always very disappointed if he left this meeting without a winner and I’m the same - Goodwood is one of my favourite places to win a race and the horses have just come right in time.
“I knew it would come right in the end if the owners stood by and gave me a chance and Sheikh Hamdan has a lot of experience with many different trainers.
“You have to have patience and wait until they are right, you can’t just shove out runners for the sake of it - if you do that you hurt someone else’s horse.
“It has been worse than a nightmare. The problems started in May and it couldn’t have been worse. Some of my horses started running moderately and the blood tests and everything else came back prefect, which was the really annoying thing. Then they started getting the red tracheas so obviously we had a viral problem and it has taken a while to get over it. They have come right just in time thankfully
“We’ve had a rheino virus, it affects the respiratory system and if you’re not careful you get a secondary infection which we avoided because we looked after them.
“I reckon we shut down for six weeks and it’s been a hugely frustrating time - I should have gone off and taken a holiday but just didn’t do anything and sat at home watching the horses.
“Nobody died but it’s important to fire in winners, especially from a financial point of view, because we want to be buying horses in the autumn and if you don’t have winners the owners are reluctant to do that.
“Tadgh (O’Shea) had done the last three or four pieces of work on this horse and he was brimming in confidence. It was a very difficult choice for (Hamdan Al Maktoum’s first jockey) Richard Hills but his father’s horses have been in great form and it would have been difficult for him to desert Ouqba. But Richard will be on board next time.
“I was worried watching the race about what was going on with Dream Eater, who was all over the place. We’ll have long discussions with his owner about where to go, maybe the Hungerford Stakes although he may even go sprinting as I’m keen to go down that route eventually.
“The horse has not been totally straightforward because he is quite highly strung but he has improved as he goes on.
“We might think about Longchamp in October for a few of the horses. We haven’t anything for the Arc but might have a look at some of the other races, it’s a few years since Mubtaker was second in the Arc.
“Very often, you look at this horse and he is so relaxed and settled - he’s had a nice time today and hopefully he can go on from here. Goodwood’s magic to me and you always get a good crowd and they are very welcoming. I am very found of the course and have had some good times here. Hopefully, the winners will come along thick and fast now."
O’Shea added: “It’s working out fantastic being second jockey to Sheikh Hamdan and it’s great to be able to ride in these big races. This is a very good horse, he deserves to be winning these races and the form was there in the book.
"I rode him in the Guineas and I felt that he would definitely get seven furlongs but I just didn’t want to set him alight too far out on him and maybe falter in the last 150 yards.
"I believed strongly that he would get the trip but I just wanted to play my cards late rather than get there too soon. The way he settled today, you would probably have to say he would get a mile. He gave me an absolute peach of a ride and dropped his head from the word go. It was a good honest gallop and this is probably his best trip in a strongly run race."
Owner Hamdan Al Maktoum added: “He surprised me a bit today but the jockey was very pleased when he worked. I hadn’t seen the horse for six weeks and just before the race I said to the trainer that the horse seemed to be carrying a bit of condition but he said to me that he was spot on. We might see if he is good enough for a Group 1 now.
“When the trainer had a winner on Sunday, I said to him that I was glad he had shaken the dust from his back!”
Third race - The Betfair Cup
COX DELIGHTED AS GIFT KEEPS GIVING
Filling the places in the Betfair Cup were two long-priced horses, Balthazaar’s Gift, who started at 25/1 and Regal Parade, a 16/1 shot.
Clive Cox is the sixth trainer of Balthazaar’s Gift, who finished just half a length behind the winner Finjaan, after Kevin Ryan, Tom George, Nick Littmoden, Luca Cumani and Rod Simpson but he is nevertheless thrilled to have the consistent six-year-old son of Xaar in his Lambourn stable.
Cox, who is enjoying a tremendous season, said: “That was a fantastic run. We haven’t had him for long - he came to us back in May in lovely condition from Rod Simpson, who did a great job and won with him in Dubai.
“He’s just one of those horses who gets under your skin. He’s a superstar and I’m delighted to have him.”
Dandy Nicholls, trainer of third-placed Regal Parade, said: “I thought we’d won but it’s a tough race and they’re tough horses. He just keeps going from strength to strength and getting better. The second horse (Balthazaar’s Gift) we beat at Chester and he’s done the reverse to us today and just got our horse at the end.”
He added: “He’s entered in loads of races. He travels well and looks well and he owes me nothing.”
Fourth race - The Betfair Molecomb Stakes
MONSIEUR CHEVALIER SWOOPS LATE FOR SIXTH SUCCESS
Richard Hannon already has one top-class juvenile in his yard in the form of runaway Coventry Stakes winner Canford Cliffs but, in winning his sixth race of the season, Monsieur Chevalier is guaranteeing that his name is never far the headlines either.
Hannon said of his Betfair Molecomb Stakes winner: “He’s certainly one of the best two-year-olds I’ve ever trained but I don’t think I want to watch that race again.
“There’s no doubt that that’s the way to ride him (coming from off the pace between horses). The only time he’s been beaten this year was when we tried to follow the Yanks at Ascot. He got a terrible bang when he was in the air but he’s redeemed himself big time today.”
Asked whether Monsieur Chevalier would now take on the older horses, he replied: “The Nunthorpe is closed now but he’s in the Gimcrack, the Mill Reef, he’s got plenty of places to go.”
Indicating that the winner is unlikely to take on his stable companion, Hannon added: “Canford Cliffs will probably go a different trip. They’re both very, very good horses.”
Winning jockey Richard Hughes, who received a one-day ban for his careless riding (August 11 - for causing interference to unplaced Soccer) on Monsieur Chevalier, said: “He’s a real superstar but he’s nerve-wracking to ride because he always starts slowly and all of a sudden you realise you’re eight or ten lengths off the leaders. You always end up last but as soon as you put him in between two horses he takes off. He’s totally different to Canford Cliffs. This lad will get six furlongs, there’s no doubt about that. But this is his year. He’s small, he’s compact but he’s tough and does everything you need. With him it’s make hay while the sun shines.
“He’s hardly blowing. You are never going and then all of a sudden, when it matters, he comes good and goes wherever you want him to go. I knew that they would fly but I was drawn a little bit wide so I wanted to go left to get a little more cover but the horse on my left jumped a half-length slow so I had to pull back and I was suddenly eight lengths off the leaders. It wasn’t ideal but I had to make do.
"I went in for a run and had a little luck because I saw one up ahead that wasn’t going well and took another manoeuvre to the right and then had some more luck. It wasn’t ideal but he got the job done. The gap was closing but he was going quicker than the gap."
Former trainer Ken Ivory, a part-owner through Valerie Hubbard, added: “This is some two-year-old and I have never seen one fly like him - I wish that I had trained one like him. It gets tougher for him every time but he keeps on doing it. He’s so relaxed and such a lazy horse but he’s like an engine.
"Richard (Hughes) is such a professional - he knows what is under him and he rides him with so much confidence, it’s unbelievable. This has got to be some special two-year-old. Goodwood is a fantastic track and it’s always in good condition - I think winning here is better than the National, personally. I had a few winners here but nothing like this.
"He’s in the Gimcrack and the Middle Park and I would like to see him run over further but Hughesy says he’s all speed so we will leave it to the professionals. We can’t keep winning, can we?"
FOURTH RACE PLACED QUOTES
BETFAIR MOLECOMB STAKES (GROUP 3)
NICHOLLS HAS HIGH HOPES FOR MANANNAN
Trainer David Nicholls was delighted with the run of Mister Manannan to finish a length runner-up to Monsieur Chevalier in the Group 3 Betfair Molecomb Stakes.
“We knew what they were going to do with the other horse (Monsieur Chevalier) so we just try to make our own way out there,” said Nicholls. “He ran a blinder but the winner’s a very good horse. Our’s is in the Gimcrack but he’s still a weak, backward horse and we don’t want to run him too much this season.”
FIFTH RACE WINNING QUOTES
DETICA SUMMER STAKES (HANDICAP)
MANYRIVERSTOCROSS IS KING FOR THE DAY
Top National Hunt trainer Alan King had his first Glorious Goodwood winner when Manyriverstocross was produced with a well-timed run by Ryan Moore to land the Detica Summer Handicap.
The winner will get a 4lb penalty on top of his alloted 8st 4lb in next month’s totesport Ebor for York and he was cut from 33/1 to 20/1 for the big handicap by the sponsor.
"I’m not sure that the plan was to be that far back, but full marks to Ryan and the horse deserves to win a decent race. He has been knocking on the door for a long time and we desperately needed him to win today to get into the Ebor.
“He was a bit free in the ladies’ race at York, although you couldn’t say he ran a bad race, and other than that he’s been in the frame every time.
“Ryan said that they went seriously quick and the plan was to ride him handier than that but the gap came and he got there.
"He’s a pretty good horse - we cut him last winter and I think that he has definitely improved since. He’s rated 90 so we needed a penalty to get into the Ebor and he has got it. He has been schooled over hurdles but that is much further down the line.
“I am delighted for (owner) John Sweeney, who has been such a great supporter of mine and he puts a lot into the game. I’ve had winners at Goodwood before but not at this meeting so this is a very special day.”
Owner John Sweeney added: “It’s fantastic and he deserved to win a race because he has been running so consistently. Ryan gave him an unbelievable ride to come from where he did - he has ridden him a different way and we are delighted. That is why he is champion jockey.
"We are still in discussions about whether to go hurdling with him. We may see him at Cheltenham or somewhere this year but he is in the Ebor and he might just get into the race now, so that is the next target.”
Fifth race - The Detica Summer Handicap
EBOR BECKONS FOR RUNNER-UP
The Ebor Handicap at York is next on the agenda for the Paul Cole-trained Precision Break, who is held in high regard by his handler and failed by just a head to reel in Manyriverstocross in the Detica Summer Handicap.
“He’s a jolly nice horse and we think a lot of him - he won seven last year,” said Cole. “He pulled a shoe off at Newmarket and had a haematoma and it took a while for him to come back from that. We’re hoping he’ll come on a lot for this race and he’s going to the Ebor.”
Precision Break’s jockey Martin Dwyer added: “He ran a great race - they went very quick early on.”
Mark Johnston, trainer of third-placed Drill Sergeant and Yes Mr President, who finished fourth, said: “He (Drill Sergeant) ran a fantastic race. It frustrates me when I hear them all say ‘oh he had a hard race from the front’ as if doing something different would have made him run better. But he’s run a great race right up to his best form.
“After Greg (Fairley) had what we didn’t think was one of his best rides on Urban Poet (in the Betfair Gordon Stakes) I can’t complain about a horse being beaten fair and square like that. He’s run a great race and everybody’s happy.”
Sixth race - The Tatler Summer Season Handicap
MARAJAA MAY ATTEMPT GLORIOUS GOODWOOD DOUBLE IN TOTESPORT MILE ON FRIDAY
Marajaa swooped late in his customary fashion to win the Tatler Summer Season Handicap from long-time leader Mister Dee Bee. The seven-year-old, who broke his pelvis last season, started his career in France with Freddie Head but was bought as a three-year-old for 5,000 guineas by Newmarket trainer Willie Musson, for whom he has won four races.
Musson, gaining his first Glorious Goodwood success, said: “He’s won off his highest mark today and he’s in good fettle. He suits this course but I closed my eyes towards the end as I thought it was all over - there was nowhere to go.
“But that way of riding him keeps his interest up. As soon as he sees open track in front of him he just stops. He ran at Windsor last year and we had hoped to come here but he was pulled up and he’d broken his pelvis. So he had three months off and fortunately he’s come back really well.”
Glorious Goodwood may not yet be over for Marajaa, who also holds an entry for the £150,000 totesport Mile Handicap on Friday. Musson is considering attempting the double who has 8st 2lb in that race after gaining a 3lb penalty. He said: “One of his owners has a box here and we’ll see if Marajaa okay to run again on Friday. He’s staying down anyway so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and take it from there.”
Rider of the winner, Chris Catlin, said: “I was confident we’d get the gaps eventually. A jockey fell off in front of me and we managed to dodge that but it was pretty tight afterwards. That’s best for him though as he tends to do nothing once he hits the front. He’s best in a fast-run race when he can come from of the pace like he did today.”
Apprentice Martin Lane who fell from South Cape has been taken to St Richards Hospital as precaution after he complained of neck pains.
The 11/2 favourite Mister Dee Bee finished second and Charlie Hills, assistant to his father Barry, said: “He’s done it the hard way and we were unlucky to be beaten by a seven-year-old. He ran an incredible race and will no doubt get put up again so we’ll have to see what the handicapper does on Tuesday.
“He’s definitely improving with each run and we’ll have a look at the Cambridgeshire and he’ll be a lovely four-year-old next season.”
SEVENTH RACE WINNING QUOTES
EBF SELSEY MAIDEN STAKES
LOWDOWN ENDS DAY ON HIGH FOR JOHNSTON
Trainer Mark Johnston completed a first and last race 26/1 double when Lowdown made all to take the concluding EBF Selsey Maiden Stakes under Greg Fairley.
“He’s a very nice horse but a bit keen for his own good,” said Johnston. “Physically he looks like he has the scope to stay seven furlongs but he is just a bit keen. If he has learned to settle then hopefully there will be more to come.
“He’s very strong and very fast and we wanted to keep it simple today. It’s lovely for Greg to finish on a winner because it’s been a hard day for him.
“Lowdown is from the first crop of Shamardal and we have about a dozen of them and they are lovely horses. Several will win races and three or four of them are really nice including Shakespearan, who is a cracking horse and will probably head to the Royal Lodge.”

PUNTERS TAKE AIM
Betfair Cup favourite Main Aim has been all the rage with punters this morning and the four-year-old is now a general 11/10 chance having been as big as 6/4 this morning.
“Main Aim has been the big gamble of the day and his price was smashed up from 6/4 into 5/4 and then again into 11/10,” said Coral’s Simon Clare.
The other big mover has been newcomer Aetos, part-owned by Sir Alex Ferguson, in the concluding EBF Selsey Maiden Stakes.
The Marcus Tregoning-trained juvenile is now as short as 7/2, having been backed at 14/1 on Betfair.
“Aetos has been the big mover,” said Kate Miller of William Hill. “He’s 7/2 from 10/1 with us and it takes a fair bit of money to shift a price like that at a Festival meeting like Goodwood. Punters are obviously heartened by the return to form of Marcus Tregoning’s stable at the weekend and we are running scared.”

LORD SHANAKILL WILL RUN AT GOODWOOD FOR ALAN JARVIS
Lord Shanakill, due to run in tomorrow’s Group One BGC Sussex Stakes, is likely to be under the official care Alan Jarvis, father-in-law of Karl Burke whose application for a stay of execution on a one-year ban was refused by the British Horseracing Authority today.
The same is likely to apply to Corporal Maddox who is set to appear in tomorrow’s Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.
Burke has been allowed to keep working from his Yorkshire yard by the BHA until August 4 to assist owners makes arrangements for their horses.
His appeal against the one-year sentence he was handed is due on August 17.
FULL BHA RELEASE
APPEAL BOARD DECISION ON KARL BURKE’S APPLICATION FOR A STAY ON PENALTY
Please find below the Order made by the Appeal Board. In essence:
Karl Burke is disqualified as of midnight tonight. He cannot go racing, enter or run horses, or go into other licensed premises.
He has undertaken not to speak to the press until Appeal Board Hearing.
Lord Shanakill and Corporal Maddox, already stabled at Goodwood, we are told have been transferred to Alan Jarvis. Karl Burke’s employees are allowed to look after them there, but the horses run under Alan Jarvis’ name and Karl Burke won’t be allowed to go racing at Goodwood.
Horses have to be under the care of a licensed trainer for 14 days prior to a race. Therefore, to assist Karl Burke’s owners in making alternative arrangements, we won’t break that 14 days by making them all ‘out of training’ as of tonight. They have until midnight on 4th August to move them.
Karl Burke can continue to live at Spigot Lodge pending the appeal.
In relation to licensed persons associating with Karl Burke, they can do so to facilitate him making the transition from licensed trainer to disqualified person i.e. a trainer taking a horse from his yard can discuss the horse with him up to 17th August 2009.
The Chairman of the Appeal Board, Sir Roger Buckley, having heard an application by Mr Burke on 28 July 2009 for a stay of the Penalty of disqualification imposed by the Disciplinary Panel on 20 July 2009, the stay is refused in light of the following dispensations by the Authority and Mr Burke undertaking not to speak to the press before the Appeal Board hearing on 17 August 2009:
Employees of Mr Burke are allowed to enter racecourse property at Goodwood on 29 July 2009 for the purposes of the care and preparation of LORD SHANAKILL and CORPORAL MADDOX;
The horses currently in training at Mr Burke’s yard, at Spigot Lodge, shall not be deemed to have come out of training until midnight on 4 August 2009. Any such horse can not be run or entered into any horse race in Great Britain during that period unless the horse is transferred to another licensed yard or another trainer takes over the licence at Spigot Lodge;
Pending consideration of the issue at the appeal, Mr Burke may continue to live at Spigot Lodge; and
Rule 220(iv) (i.e. the prohibition on licensed persons associating in connection with horseracing with disqualified persons) is to be dis-applied (a) until midnight on 4 August 2009, insofar as is necessary to allow Mr Burke to run the yard at Spigot Lodge until that date and (b) until the appeal hearing on 17 August 2009, in relation to Mr Alan Jarvis and any other licensed person insofar as is necessary for the purpose of effecting the orderly transition of Mr Burke’s status from licensed trainer to disqualified person.
GOING REMAINS GOOD
The going remains GOOD after it was dry overnight.
Seamus Buckley, the Goodwood Clerk of the Course, said: “We had seven millimetres of rain yesterday which maintained the ground at GOOD and it has been dry after the last shower petered out at 5pm.
“I am delighted with the condition of the course and looking forward to excellent racing on a very exciting opening day card.
“The forecast today is for the weather to be predominantly dry.”
Straight course: Stands’ side.
Round course: inside except 1m 4f which is outside.
The far side running rail from the six-furlong marker on the lower bend to the winning post has been moved out six yards increasing races distances by about 15 yards. This is to provide fresh ground later in the week. The last three and a half furlongs to the winning post of this rail will be taken down after racing tomorrow (Wednesday). The remainder, around the lower bend, will come down after racing on Thursday.
The top bend has been dolled out four yards increasing race distances by eight yards. This will be removed after racing on Friday to give fresh ground for the Blue Square Nassau Stakes on Saturday.
