A sunny day, pleasant temperatures, high-quality racing and praise for the turf - little wonder Goodwood’s clerk of the course, Seamus Buckley, was looking pleased as the track’s big meeting concluded its fourth day.

“The racing’s been great and we’re delighted with the ground, which has stood up remarkably well,” said Buckley.

“It’s ridden faster than I anticipated, because when we walked it this morning I felt it was quite tacky, but the sun got on it and dried it out and we’re bang on good ground. The times are showing that.

“There is some rain coming to the area between now and the first race tomorrow, but it should move away and I’m hoping we won’t get wet during racing. We’re moving the rail on the top bend to create a lovely strip of about three furlongs for the fillies’ race [the Blue Square Nassau Stakes].”

Today’s Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, a consolation race for horses that failed to get into tomorrow’s Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup, suggested horses drawn high or who could get to the far rail were at an advantage, but Buckley said: “I think it’s pretty even right across the course. Races down the straight course earlier in the week suggested there was nothing in it, and the final race today over five furlongs showed that the winner came tight to the stands’ rail and was nearly beaten by a horse who came even tighter.

“Personally I don’t think there will be anything in it and it will depend on where the pace is in the race.

“I’m a happy man tonight and I’m looking forward to the final day tomorrow, albeit with a little sadness that this wonderful occasion is coming to a close until next year.”


Today’s crowd came to 20,508, down 11 per cent on the excellent figure in 2008.

Callum MacKay, Goodwood Racecourse’s Marketing & PR Manager, said: “We reduced the number of guest badges in the Richmond Enclosure to make sure there was no overcrowding there, while the number of people in the Gordon Enclosure was also down.

“We are hoping to have a fairly full house tomorrow though there will be tickets on sale on the day at the gates to both the Gordon and Lennox Enclosures.”

Jeff Pearce’s 28-year passion for the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup could lead to a glorious victory in tomorrow’s £100,000 sprint handicap.

The Newmarket-based trainer is pinning his hopes on Tamagin - a 20-1 chance with the race’s sponsors - who he bought at Tattersalls’ sales earlier this month for 70,000gns on behalf of owner Nigel Hanger. The six-year-old had run 50 times and shown himself to be a class act, most recently for Yorkshire-based trainer Kevin Ryan, but the move to Pearce did him no harm, and two weeks after changing stables he ran a fine race when second in the Scottish Stewards’ Cup at Hamilton.

The Glorious Goodwood version is a tougher assignment, but it was the goal from the moment the auctioneer’s hammer came down. Pearce immediately nominated the Bluesquare-sponsored race as Tamagin’s mid-summer target, explaining the Stewards’ Cup had gained a special place in his affections since his former boss, the late Frankie Durr, won it in 1981 with Crews Hill.

Significantly, and poignantly, after gaining a licence to train, Pearce handled the career of Rotherfield Greys, who won the race in 1988 - yet the horse had joined fellow Newmarket trainer Chris Wall one week earlier, leaving Pearce to rue a near miss.

Tamagin provides him with a chance to bury that memory, and today he said: “I don’t often get one good enough to run in a big race, so naturally I’m excited about tomorrow. I’ve been doing the job for more than 20 years, so I’ll sleep okay tonight, but I expect there will be a certain amount of tension in the morning.

“His run at Hamilton was very pleasing, because he did everything but win [beaten half a length by Quest For Success] when giving the winner a stone and one pound. The ground was a bit soft for him that day and that’s a slight worry tomorrow, but I’m hoping his lordship upstairs is kind and keeps the rain away.

“His draw [in stall 20] is okay, but could have been higher - I’d have gone for 26 in an ideal world, but I’m not complaining.”

Former champion jockey Seb Sanders rides Tamagin, who carries 9st 10lb, after gelling with the horse at Hamilton. Pearce said: “I went up there hoping to get the best jockey available, and I was delighted to get Seb. I told him I was heading for Glorious Goodwood with the horse and he was keen to keep the ride, then he came here last week and rode him in a piece of work on Long Hill.

“My son, Simon, is riding him now on The Severals [a Newmarket gallop] and the horse looks fantastic. In fact Simon was only a short-head away from riding the horse tomorrow and taking 7lb off his back, but Seb was first choice.

“Simon has a ride for Alan King in the last race tomorrow [Latin Scholar, in the Bluesquarecasino.com Apprentice Stakes] so the Pearce family will be down there mob-handed. It could turn out to be a great day.”


The name Fred Armstrong may not mean much to many racegoers, but he saddled three winners of the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup, a record that has stood for 56 years.

Armstrong’s achievement could be matched tomorrow when a field of 28 horses are due to go to post for the £100,000 sprint. Trainers David Barron, Roger Charlton and Dandy Nicholls have all won the race twice and field candidates that could improve the tally.

For the record, Armstrong’s wins came in 1950 (First Consul ridden by Edgar Britt), 1951 (Sugar Bowl, Willie Snaith) and 1953 (Palpitate, Snaith again). Barron won it in 1994 (For The Present, Jimmy Fortune) and 1996 (Coastal Bluff, Fortune), Charlton’s successes came in 1999 (Harmonic Way, Richard Hughes) and 2003 (Patavellian, Steve Drowne), while Nicholls scored in 2000 (Tayseer, Hughes) and 2005 (Gift Horse, Kieren Fallon).

Tomorrow Barron saddles Hitchens, the mount of apprentice Neil Brown, Charlton relies upon Genki, who will be ridden by Drowne, while Nicholls, who has become a leading light in the training of sprint handicappers, saddles no fewer than six horses - they are Valery Borzov (ridden by his son, Adrian), Buachaill Dona (Jimmy Quinn), Sonny Red (Francis Norton), Evens And Odds (William Carson), Fol Hollow (Martin Dwyer) and Striking Spirit (Ahmed Ajtebi).

Sir Michael Stoute and Richard Hannon have also saddled the winner twice, but they are not represented this year.

The only other trainers with runners tomorrow and past winners in the bag are Richard Fahey, who runs Knot In Wood and Fishforcompliments having scored with Superior Premium (Robert Winston) in 1998, John Gosden, who relies on Prohibit but took the race in 1993 with King’s Signet (Willie Carson), and Bryan Smart, trainer of Enderby Spirit and successful with Bond Boy (Chris Catlin) seven years ago.

Every winner at Glorious Goodwood is liberally soaked in kudos, but there is no doubting several races throughout the five-day fixture have special meaning.

The Bluesquare.com Stewards Cup is one, and while it is a handicap and not a Stakes race, it’s £100,000 prize money and longstanding place in the sport make it one of the treasures of British racing.

For a trio of trainers a third winner in the contest, and a place alongside Fred Armstrong, would be a very special moment in their careers.


Saturday at Glorious Goodwood is a big day for Blue Square with the bookmaker sponsoring the two feature events of the day, the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes and the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup.

The six-furlong Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup is one of the most competitive sprint handicaps of the season and one of the biggest betting heats of the entire year. Unsurprisingly, the sponsor reports money for the vast majority of the 28 contenders.

Alan Alger, PR Manager for Blue Square, revealed on Friday morning: “We can expect to see much more activity in the market after today’s Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint but so far we have taken a nice spread of bets. No less than 24 of the 28 runners have been laid to good money since yesterday’s draw.”

Among those is the Dandy Nicholls-trained Sonny Red who will emerge from stall 26 under the trainer’s son, Adrian Nicholls. Sonny Red, successful at Ascot last time, has been well supported this morning and is now into 16/1 from 20/1.

Beaver Patrol from the Eve Johnson Houghton yard is another high-drawn mover in the market. The seven-year-old, a close fifth in the race two years, will come out of stall 23 of 28.

Not all of the money is for high-drawn horses. Blue Square has shortened the Richard Fahey-trained Fishforcompliments to 33/1 from 40/1 after the five-year-old’s connections plumped for the number one stall.

Rainbow View is the Blue Square mover in the Blue Square Nassau Stakes. No doubt yesterday’s rain gave punters the confidence to side with John Gosden’s charge who is now 4/1 from 9/2 for the Group One contest over just short of 10 furlongs.

The David Elsworth-trained Barshiba on the other hand has drifted out to 12/1 from 10/1 with the sponsor.


The going has changed back to Good from Good To Soft which prevailed from half-way through the afternoon yesterday. It was dry overnight.

The GoingStick reading at 9am today was 8.2.

This compared to 8.5 on Thursday morning, 8.6 on Wednesday, 8.3 on Tuesday and 8.4 on Monday.

Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course, said this morning: “The ground has dried out remarkably well and we are back to GOOD from good to soft for the last three races yesterday.

“It has been dry since we had the heavy burst of rain yesterday afternoon. The ground will probably ride a bit slower than for any day this week and the GoingStick reading is indicative of that.

“There is fresh ground on the lower bend after we took the temporary running rail down last night.

“I am still convinced that the going across the straight course is the same but we will learn more from the bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup consolation race, the Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, which is the second race today.”

Stalls’ Position

Straight course: stands’ side.

Round course: inside, except for 1m 4f which is outside.


The top bend has been dolled out four yards, increasing distances by eight yards.

The dolled-out temporary rails on the bottom bend came down last night tio give fresh ground for today’s totesport Mile.


Totesport sponsors the totesport Mile for the fifth time this year and the Wigan-based company is hoping that Spectait (10/1) does not win this afternoon’s feature betting heat for a second time.

The Jonjo O’Neill-trained gelding landed the competitive heritage handicap in 2006 and is one of two horses flagged up by Pricewise in today’s Racing Post to have attracted significant support.

The other is Extraterrestrial (13/2) from the in-form stable of Richard Fahey, who finds himself fortuitously drawn 20 of the 20 runners.

George Primarolo, PR manager for totesport, revealed this morning: “Spectait is the best backed horse this morning, purely because of the Pricewise factor. Extraterrestrial is worst for us in our antepost book and is another Pricewise horse.

“We have seen bits and pieces for others but I would expect to see most money for those drawn high - between 20 and Spectait in stall 16. Punters are basically following the statistics.

“If any of those high-drawn horses win it will be a bad for us but if anything wins from a low draw it will be a result.”

The totescoop6 was not won last weekend with the result that £75,587 rolls over to this Saturday where the bet takes place at Goodwood and Newmarket. The three winning tickets that landed the totescoop6 £619,738 bonus fund last weekend at York means that the pot now starts at £32,394 and a single winner of this weekend’s bet could well land over £100,000.

The highlights of this weekend’s bet come from Goodwood, where there is a mix of Group, Listed and handicap action. Ten top-class fillies fight it out for the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes whilst a maximum field of 28 go to post for the bluesquare.com Stewards’
Cup. All six races will be screened live on Channel 4.

Primarolo commented: “The Scoop6 pools are beginning to build again after some high-profile winners over the past couple of weeks but a single winner of this weekend’s bet could still land a healthy return.”

Race One Win Quotes - Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes


Goodwood specialist Illustrious Blue notched the sixth course win of his career in a thrilling finish to the Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes.

Held up in last place under an ice-cool Jim Crowley, the William Knight-trained six-year-old travelled strongly around the final turn of the mile and a half contest and, with long-time leader Warringah firmly in his sights, proceeded to advance with intent down the home straight.

Illustrious Blue drew alongside the Ryan Moore-ridden 7/2 favourite Warringah approaching the distance and the pair engaged in an enthralling duel to the line, with Crowley’s charge, a well-backed 9/1 chance, prevailing by a neck.

Trained locally at Lewes, the Dansili entire was registering his second Glorious Goodwood triumph, having landed a mile handicap here in 2006.

Knight commented: "He’s been an absolute star and for Illustrious Blue to be my first Group winner is very special. I haven’t had a winner at Goodwood for about a year now, maybe longer, so I’m absolutely delighted.

“He’s a legend to win at Glorious Goodwood and was rated about 78 when I got him and I got lucky. He was just progressive and has been a star. He’s probably a 10lb better horse at Goodwood and that might be because he might just think a bit. The turns and the hill here suit him. He also travels so well, which you need to do around here. It keeps him thinking.”

Illustrious Blue was breaking a losing steak stretching back to May, 2007, when he won the Listed Festival Stakes at Goodwood.

Knight explained: “We took him to Dubai last year and that knocked the stuffing out of him. He was out there for a long time and was just never the same horse. This year we were going to go but it didn’t happen and he’s been a different, fresher horse this season.

“He ran a super race in the Hardwicke at Royal Ascot on fast ground that wasn’t ideal. Today it was a combination of ideal ground, the fact he loves Goodwood and that he was in the form of his life. He makes the heart beat a few seconds when he comes up the straight as you never think he’ll quite get there but it suits him to be dropped out because he comes with one long run. Jim’s done nothing wrong with him this year. He’s a horse that takes a couple of rides to get used to but he’s really clicked with Jim (Crowley) now.

“It’s onwards and upwards now even at the age of six. We always wanted to come here but there’s a mile and a half contest in Turkey at the start of September that we might have a look at.”

Crowley added: “Everything went well and he loves to come down the outside. He was always going to get there. He’s a dude of a horse. William’s done a fantastic job with him and he told me this race was the plan before we went out so it’s lovely that it’s come off. It’s great for William as well."

Illustrious Blue was the subject of plenty of support, being backed form 12/1 into 9/1 at the off, having also touched 8/1. His delighted co-owner, Ian Bendelow, said: "We wanted to win a Group Three and now we can plan. We might go abroad now and there is a lot to come from this horse. We think he might get a bit further as well. He’s the loveliest character, he’s relaxed, enjoys life and is very lazy - he saves it all for the day. My wife Pam loves this horse and feeds him carrots every Sunday."

First race - Coutts Glorious Stakes (Group 3)
Placed quotes


Warringah was edged out of the Coutts Glorious Stakes after making much of the running and striking for home at the head of the home straight - it was only inside the final furlong that he surrendered the lead to winner Illustrious Blue.

Owner Philip Newton, who bred Warringah out of the mare Threefold, is thinking of a Melbourne Cup challenge with his horse, and said: “There are a lot of options open to us. The Melbourne Cup is one idea - he’s got class over a mile and a half, but he stays further. I’ve had runners at the Breeders’ Cup - Rob Roy was mine - and I’m quite happy to have gun will travel.

“If we hadn’t had the rain yesterday we might have won today. He’s a big horse, but he bounces off firm ground. Ryan [Moore] said the horse loves fast ground, and while he’ll go on good ground he’s not at his best. We gelded him because he was such a big horse and wouldn’t have made a stallion. As Jack Colling said: “Give me geldings and I’ll break the bookmakers’ hearts”.

“He’s a half-brother to High Calypso, who did well for me, and the dam is in foal to Dalakhani, she has a Dansili foal, a Pivotal yearling and a Tiger Hill two-year-old. We send her to good stallions because she’s a good mare and bred a Group Two winner with her first foal. Their half-brother, Jedi, runs in the opening race [Bluesquarepoker.com Handicap] here tomorrow.”

Mick Channon was pleased with the run of third-placed Halicarnassus, but said: “He was disappointing last weekend, but he’s fired today. That’s just him. He has days when he has a way, but he’s a character. He’s a fun horse and we’ll go where we can have fun.”


Jockeys who rode in the first race on day four of Glorious Goodwood said the ground was good, or just on the slow side of good.

Richard Hughes said: “It’s good ground, just slightly dead.”

Christophe Lemaire said: “It’s a bit sticky on the curve by the trees, but it’s generally good ground.”

Tom Queally said: “It’s on the slow side of good.”

George Baker said: “It’s loose on top. You can tell we’ve had some rain. It’s good ground but it didn’t suit my horse because he wants it quick.”


Jimmy Fortune was banned for two days (August 14 & 15), for careless riding after his letting his mount Drumfire drift left-handed a furlong and a half out and causing interference to a couple of the other runners.

Second race - Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap
Winner’s quotes


Johannes fulfilled the dreams of owners Andrew Nicholls and David Kilburn when winning the Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, a race that was dominated by horses finishing on the far rail. The winner was drawn 22 of the 22 runners while second third and fourth came from 19, 24 and 12.

Nicholls, from Oxfordshire, said: “We’ve been coming here for 15 years, stay for a week at the Spread Eagle at Midhurst, but have never had a really good run. This is the best Flat track in the country - we enjoy the atmosphere, we enjoy what Goodwood gives us, it’s got a fantastic vista and the crowds are wonderful.”

Kilburn, who is from Yorkshire and like Nicholls runs a builders’ merchants, will be represented in tomorrow’s Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup by Valery Borzov trained by Dandy Nicholls.

Johannes is trained by Richard Fahey who said: “That was grand - I had three runners, two drawn low and one high, and we found the winner although I probably fancied the fifth more beforehand. We got this horse last year and he ran once, but was as dead as a door nail. We gave him a good holiday, and remembering he was a good two-year-old he’s come back to his best. He seems happy at the moment. This was the plan all year long for the owners who say this means more to them than any winner they’ve had.”

With horses drawn high dominating the race, Fahey, whose big-race runners tomorrow are drawn one (Fishforcompliments) and 11 (Knot In Wood), said: “That puts it all to bed on that evidence. There was plenty of pace drawn low, and Ryan [Moore, fifth on Fahey’s Harrison George] said they went quick, but the far side was always in front. We’ll have to stick to this side and see what happens. I’d have fancied Knot In Wood who’s in good form, but maybe Johannes can win it next year!”

Winning rider Tony Hamilton: "We were in front on our side the whole way and when I got into the lead he picked up well and galloped all the way to the line. It’s a shame for Paul (Hanagan) whose banned but while he’s suspended it’s great to have these opportunities. I’m at Doncaster tomorrow."

Race Two Place Quotes - Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap


Dr Marwan Koukash enjoyed a Glorious Goodwood triumph yesterday when Suruor won the XL Insurance Handicap and the owner was pleased with the effort of his 7/1 shot Northern Dare in the Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint. The David Nicholls-trained gelding took the runner-up berth from his 19 draw, a length and a half behind the winner, Johannes.

Koukash said: “Northern Dare ran great - the ground just didn’t suit him. On this sort of ground he needs five furlongs. High numbers had it but he just needs a bit more juice in the ground. We’ll see where we go next.

“We had a winner yesterday and we have three more runners tomorrow so it hasn’t been a bad week and hopefully we can have another winner tomorrow.”

The David Barron-trained filly Jaconet, drawn 24, took third at 33/1, a further length and half back.

Her trainer commented: “That was a good run. She maybe didn’t handle the track as well as I expected. She rolled around all over the place - I don’t know if it was to do with the track or the ground. But she ran a very good race.”

Race Three Win Quotes - totesport Mile


Laa Rayb defied his low draw and a 25/1 starting price to run away with the totesport Mile by two and a quarter lengths under a dream ride from Jimmy Fortune.

The quirky Mark Johnston-trained gelding, successful in a French Group Three last term, sported first time blinkers as he lined up in stall eight.

Having missed the kick, Fortune took the decision to drop his mount in and by the time the 20 runner-field straightened up for home, Laa Rayb was travelling smoothly on the heels of the leaders. When the gap appeared inside the final quarter mile, the five-year-old gelding quickened clear for an impressive success.

Fortune, who was registering his third victory of the meeting, revealed: "Mark told me to make the running but I missed the kick and when that happens here you have to drop in and hope you can get a run through them. The ground is so much better on that rail but he’s won well - he’d have won from anywhere. He’s a bit of a character and the blinkers have obviously made a difference."

Johnston now leads the 2009 Glorious Goodwood trainers’ table with four victories.

The Middleham handler said: "You can’t give up on a horse with this much class. He’s got a lot of miles on the clock, he’s got a few quirks and he’s probably benefited from a bit of a gap between races as well. We deserved one dream run from four badly drawn horses. Look at how well Lovelace finished from an impossible draw.

“ I got it wrong and told Alan Munro (rider of Crackdown) to come round the front but he’s finished out the back so clearly the way to do it was to get across. Jimmy got the best of it and that was the way to do it.

“I had four badly drawn horses and on paper each had a good chance, particularly Lovelace and Dubai’s Touch. I said before the race that if I got a good draw, I’d win this but I thought Lovelace would be the one.

“Laa Rayb is a high-class horse of Group race calibre. He’s had his problems but the blinkers, along with a bit of a break between his last race and this have helped him. The horse needs to be right and perhaps hasn’t looked in love with the game at times. It was a case of getting him here in the best condition possible and perhaps a bit of juice also helped, I don’t know. You have to keep running and trying to find the key.”

Third race - totesport Mile
Placed quotes


Owner J P McManus and trainer Jonjo O’Neill are synonymous with jump racing, but they teamed up to grab some decent prize money in the totesport Mile.

The O’Neill-trained Spectait, who was bought as a jumping prospect, finished second to Laa Rayb and one place ahead of Docofthebay. This was Spectait’s second outing in the race - he won it in 2006 when trained by Sir Mark Prescott.

Guy Upton, representing Gloucestershire-based O’Neill, said: “We’re delighted with that - it was a cracking run and this was always the plan. He didn’t travel that well early, but when he got out he flew home, even though it must be said the winner scored with a bit in hand. Our horse had to come wide which didn’t help.

“He might go back jumping at some stage, but he’s running well on the Flat and is picking up some decent prize money. He was disappointing over hurdles, despite winning first time out, but he’s in great form now and he might find it easier in conditions or Listed races.”

Spectait wore ear plugs, and Upton said: “He’s very sensitive to noise, as you could see when people began clapping as they came in [to the winner’s enclosure]. He reared over in the stalls at Doncaster and we think that was down to noise, but he’s just a sensitive horse.”

Docofthebay was unruly and had to be withdrawn before Royal Ascot’s Hunt Cup, but trainer Jamie Osborne said: “It was unfortunate what happened that day - the ground at Ascot and the draw would have suited him better. He was a million to one from his draw today [stall 3] and the juice wouldn’t have helped - with that in mind he’s run a great race.

“He’s worn blinkers and run well in them in the past, but they were winding him up in the stalls at Royal Ascot, so I made a compromise and put cheekpieces on him today.”

Fourth race - Richmond Stakes (Group 2)
Winner’s quotes


The jewels in trainer Richard Hannon’s chest of juvenile talent were given added polish today when Dick Turpin maintained his unbeaten record in the Richmond Stakes.

Ridden by Richard Hughes, Dick Turpin followed up Monsieur Chevalier’s win in Tuesday’s Betfair Molecomb Stakes, and while both horses would grace any yard, neither is thought to be better than their stablemate Canford Cliffs, the easy Royal Ascot winner.

Hughes said of Dick Turpin: “He’s a very tall horse with a huge stride on him, and he’s going faster than you think. It takes him a bit of time to get rolling once you switch him off, but he’s pretty good.”

"In the race he relaxed really good and lengthened well in the end. He was looking around a bit but he did it well. Our good two-year-olds are different types. I’d say this fellow would need a break now, he’s still a bit on the weak side, Monsieur Chevalier is all speed while Canford Cliffs is just a different story. Fair dues to Richard, he keeps pulling these two-year-olds out."

Hannon said of his winner: “He’s run three times and he’s won three, but Hughesie said it might be worth giving him a month off. The horse is in a sales race in Ireland at the back end of the summer, and you can win more in prize money there than for winning two Group races.

“He was bought at the Tattersalls’ Ireland sale by Peter and Ross Doyle and Richard [Hannon jnr] and he wasn’t expensive at around €23,000.”

Dick Turpin was quoted at 20-1 for the Stan James 2,000 Guineas by the sponsors and Paddy Power, at 25-1 by Boylesports and 33-1 by Sky Bet.

Asked about that one-mile Classic, Hannon said: “There’s no reason why he won’t get seven furlongs or a mile. A furlong out I thought he might be in trouble today, but he shoved the reins at him and gave him a smack and away he went. As the line was coming up he was going away. We’ll see what happens to the horses that were behind him.”

Hannon added: “Canford Cliffs will go to France for the Prix Morny. He seems to be different gear and he doesn’t give a damn about anything. He’s a very, very good horse and the best I’ve had around me for a very long time.”

Race Four Place Quotes - Group Two Richmond Stakes


Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor was pleased with the effort of 9/2 shot Buzzword after the two-year-old showed a fine attitude to take the runner-up berth in the Group Two Richmond Stakes.

A quarter of a mile from the finish of the six-furlong contest, the Windsor maiden winner was being angled out from the rail to chase eventual victor Dick Turpin when Rakaan closed the gap, impeding the momentum of Frankie Dettori’s mount.

The Pivotal colt rallied to finish strongly down the stands’ rail, clinching second from third-placed Stargaze by a head, albeit three lengths adrift of the impressive winner.

Bin Suroor commented: “He ran a big race. The horse has ability and will improve for the race. He was running on in the last two furlongs - I know he was stuck between horses but still, he will be better over further. I think we will see better at seven furlongs.”

Stargaze, trained by Andrew Balding, had won his previous two starts at Lingfield and Bath. The Oasis Dream colt continued his improvement, belying odds of 20/1 to post a career best effort.

Balding said: “I’m very pleased with that. The ground was just about as slow as he would get away with, he’s better on quicker ground.

“I’m very pleased with him, he’s improving all the time. He is in the Mill Reef Stakes but we will try to find something in between time.”

Race Five Win Quotes - RSA Nursery Handicap


Frankie Dettori was relieved to hear his number called after a breath-taking finish to the seven-furlong RSA Nursery in which his mount, Black Snowflake, flew home in the closing stages to take the verdict in the final strides.

The Saeed bin Suroor-trained juvenile, sent off the 7/2 favourite, was short of room and forced wide in the home straight before rattling home deep inside the final furlong to score by a neck from 8/1 shot Gunner Lindley.

Dettori revealed: “I had a few traffic problems but he was very honest and picked up for me. He put his head down and just got there. I wasn’t sure I got it so it was a joy when my number came up!”

The Elusive Quality colt was registering his second success after triumphing at Haydock last time and connections feel he could in time make his mark in a higher grade.

Simon Crisford, racing manager for owners Godolphin, said: “Seven furlongs is ideal at the moment and he will stay further in time. He has a really nice attitude and we are very pleased with his progress.

“It’s always a bit tricky here if you’re short of room and in the last furlong he had a lot of ground to make up. The good thing about the horse is that he’s going forward and he’s going up. It’s hard going up from maidens and this was a good test for him.

“Sometimes it gives them confidence to run in a handicap. Also, it’s about timing. Sometimes there are no suitable races to launch them forward. He needs to come up to the next level before we start talking about the top races and his next race will tell us that. He is progressing nicely and we will look for a nice race for him.

“His next race is really what it’s all about because he’ll be up against better horses. That will be the test.

“Buzzword was very solid in the Richmond Stakes and didn’t get the splits when he needed, he was doing his best work at the end. He’s bred to get further and showed a really pleasing attitude today. I think seven furlongs could be a good trip for him next time. The winner was really good and we were never going to catch him.

“Schiaparelli (winner of the Coutts Goodwood Cup yesterday) was fine today. He’s had ongoing feet problems, that’s why he’s lightly raced and needs minding and kept to good ground or softer. We’ll look at the Lonsdale at York and he’s also in the German race in September but the ground will be the key to him.”

Fifth race - FSA Nursery Stakes
Placed quotes


Gunner Lindley must be sick of the sight of Black Snowflake - in his short career of just four races the pair have met three times and Gunner Lindley has yet to beat his rival.

Today, after holding a winning position in the FSA Nursery Stakes, Gunner Lindley was chopped down by Black Snowflake’s late lunge and succumbed by a neck.

Charlie Hills, who is assistant to his father, Barry, who trains the runner-up, said: “We keep meeting the winner, but that’s life. Our horse has run a cracker and has such a professional attitude. He’s going the right way and he’s in a sales race at Doncaster so that is probably the plan, but we’ll see what the handicapper does with him.

“We gave 19,000gns for him at Newmarket [as a yearling] and that’s not bad value.”

Anton Pearson, representing Peter Winkworth, trainer of third-placed Raine’s Cross, said: “We’ve always thought this horse wanted more than six furlongs, but this is the right trip for him now [seven furlongs] and he’ll want further next year. I thought this was a really good horse after his first two runs, but then he performed poorly at Royal Ascot and he was disappointing next time at Salisbury.

“Just like Marcus Tregoning we’ve had a problem in the yard, and while I’ve had the horses blood tested and scoped nothing’s come to light. They’ve run below par and the vets have been unable to put their finger on it. It’s been very frustrating.”

Sixth race - Oak Tree Stakes (Group 3)
Winner’s quotes


Generous rainfall may have spoilt the party for many racegoers at Glorious Goodwood yesterday, but it was welcomed by connections of Summer Fete.

The three-year-old daughter of Pivotal must have easy ground, and having won a Listed race on soft last year she added this Group 3 prize with a little in hand.

Trainer Bryan Smart was absent, but jockey Richard Mullen said: “We’ve always thought quite a bit of her and gave her a run in the Nell Gwyn Stakes [at Newmarket in April] but unfortunately that was on quick ground and it didn’t suit her.

“Bryan put her away after that and she ran well at Newbury on her comeback earlier this month. She was possibly a little bit fresh that day and she ran too freely, so I was keen to get her switched off today.

“She did that and then stayed on at the finish.”

Summer Fete was bred by her owner, Sheikh Mohammed’s son Sheikh Rashid. Mullen said: “Her dam, Tamarillo, was useful and won an Oaks in Dubai so this filly was always going to stay on. The ground is the key to her and while it was a bit tacky today she likes it soft.

“Bryan and Sheikh Rashid will decide on her next run, but one day this filly will make a nice broodmare.”

Race Six Place Quotes


Trainer Mick Channon was delighted with the effort of Please Sing in taking third spot in the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes, less than a length and a half behind the winner, Summer Fete.

The Royal Applause filly, winner of the Group Two Cherry Hinton Stakes last season, was sent off a 12/1 chance and came home strongly under Edward Creighton.

Channon said: “She’s a very consistent and filly. She’s done nothing wrong today and finished very well. She’s a Group filly, she’s proven it again today and it’s a case of finding the right race for her.

“The draw probably didn’t help but I don’t want to start making any excuses. She ran really well and we’re very pleased.”


Richard Mullen was suspended for one day, Friday August 14, after the stewards found him guilty of careless riding aboard the winner Summer Fete in the Oak Tree Stakes.

The stewards judged that Mullen allowed his filly to drift left without sufficient corrective action, thus causing interference to the Michael Hills-ridden Royal Confidence, who was unplaced.

Race Seven Win Quotes


Noble Storm held a late surge from runner-up Mattamia to gain a deserved success in the five-furlong Turf Club Handicap.

The Ed McMahon-trained three-year-old missed the break slightly but utilised his trademark pace to track the front-running Titus Andronicus before striking for home with a quarter of a mile to race.

Jockey Graham Gibbons kept the 9/2 chance up to his task and the pair held on by a head at the line.

McMahon said: “Looking at this race, off that handicap mark, he was the most consistent horse in the field racing off the mark he had been given.

“He won two races at six furlongs on soft ground as a two-year-old. He can outstay them on this ground and that’s what he did. I know the Millman horse was coming at him but I didn’t think he was going to get to us.

“The trouble with him is that he’s in the twilight of top handicap company or Listed races. He’s rated 94 so if he goes up 4lb or 6lb, as he probably will, then he’s out of 0-95 handicaps.

“There’s not that great a gulf between top handicaps and Group races over this distance but if I’d ran him in the Audi Stakes he’d have been up against horses like Kingsgate Native. He’s an out and out sprinter so we’ll keep him at five furlongs and it could be that we’ll be looking at a Listed race for him.”

McMahon was enjoying his second victory at Glorious Goodwood after Terentia scored in 2006.

The Lichfield trainer said: “I’m two from seven here at Glorious Goodwood. I don’t bring them down for nothing.”
