GLORIOUS GOODWOOD 2010
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, JULY 28
BUCKLEY’S TEAM PRESS ON AFTER RACING
Racegoers were heading home after two days of exciting action on the Sussex Downs, but Goodwood’s groundstaff had more work to do ahead of racing tomorrow.
Clerk of the course Seamus Buckley said: “We couldn’t be more pleased with the way the day has gone, not least because we had such a fantastic race for the Sussex Stakes.
“Everyone is singing the praises of the ground, and it is standing up extremely well after two days of racing.
“This evening we will be taking up the rail in the home straight to the three-furlong marker to provide fresh ground on the far side of the course. We are also going to water a section of the back straight from the mile-and-six-furlongs start to the next bend - a distance of about two furlongs - with some six to ten millimetres of water, just to take the sting out of the ground.
“It’s a lot of work but we’ll get there and we’re very pleased with the way things are going.”
TANQUERAY RICHMOND STAKES PREVIEW
The all-conquering Richard Hannon captured last year’s Tanqueray Richmond Stakes with Dick Turpin, who has gone on to Group One glory this year, and the Wiltshire trainer - who was also successful in 2008 with Prolific - has a bright chance of a hat-trick in the six-furlong contest.
The unbeaten Libranno will represent Hannon and comes to Goodwood on the back of two Newmarket successes, most recently in the Group Two TNT July Stakes on July 8.
The Richard Fahey-trained Marine Commando has also had two wins from two starts and captured the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot on his latest outing.
Trainer Mark Johnston won the 2001 race with Mister Cosmi and he is represented by Satin Love, a $150,000 foal sales purchase who won by five lengths on his debut at Hamilton.
“My two-year-olds as a whole are further behind than in normal years, because they are generally slower-maturing types,” Johnston told this week’s Racing Post Weekender. “However this is the one who does look smart at the moment having made a five-length winning debut at Hamilton.
“The ground on that occasion changed to good to soft after heavy showers and he acted very well, although I don’t think he beat an awful lot. He has come on again for it and steps up in class on Friday when he runs in the Richmond Stakes.”
Godolphin’s Roayh won a maiden at Leicester on June 2 and has since gone on to be third in Group Two company at Royal Ascot and Newmarket.
The Brian Meehan-trained The Long Game broke his maiden by four and a half lengths at Ascot on July 9 while William Haggas is represented by The Paddyman.
The Giant’s Causeway colt, who was home-bred by former Coral bookmakers supremo Bob Scott and his wife Pauline, was a runaway eight-length winner when odds-on favourite for a Yarmouth maiden on July 1.
SEA LORD 9/2 FAVOURITE FOR FRIDAY’S TOTESPORT MILE
The Mark Johnston-trained Sea Lord has hardened into 9/2 favouritism with the sponsor for Friday’s Totesport Mile following today’s declaration stage when, as expected, his stablemate St Moritz was taken out of the handicap.
“It had been a steady market until last weekend when Mark Johnston was interviewed on At The Races and said that Sea Lord was his best bet of the meeting. He has been backed from an initial 14/1 into 9/2 favourite,” said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
Meanwhile, the Barry Hills-trained Ransom Note, who was 8/1 joint-favourite for the Totesport Mile when betting opened, is now a 14/1 chance.

FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES
SPORTINGBET.COM GOODWOOD HANDICAP
GHIMAAR LEADS 1-2 FOR JUMP TRAINERS
Top National Hunt trainers Nicky Henderson and David Pipe took the first two places in the opening Sportingbet.com Goodwood Handicap when Ghimaar beat Junior by a length and a half.
Ghimaar is one of just three Flat horses Henderson has, alongside Sentry Duty and 13-year-old Caracciola who runs in tomorrow’s Artemis Goodwood Cup, although today’s winner is now likely to be put away for a hurdling campaign.
“It’s always fun here and it is a great meeting. Our Flat string is fairly short and sweet but we always try and keep a couple for Ascot, Goodwood and York. It’s good fun when it works,” said Henderson, who bought Ghimaar for 60,000 guineas out of Dermot Weld’s yard at Tattersalls in October.
“He ran a great race at Ascot (fourth) and got a really good run today - Eddie gave him a beautiful ride. I didn’t think that too much went wrong in the Ascot Stakes, he was a little bit further behind - and I had A P (McCoy), who knows the horse very well, speaking to Eddie from Ireland this morning.
“We let him win his second novice race over hurdles after Ascot to get the confidence back in the bank and then come to this, which he really enjoyed. Eddie was great because that split that he got on the rail coming in might have come early enough but it was a winning move.
“We were looking for a likely sort of profile to go jumping at the sales and you know what it is like buying those horses off the Flat. He is quite a good hurdler - he has won two of his three races - but I couldn’t get him right all winter and consequently he is doing this. He wasn’t showing me anything and wasn’t happy and so it was very late before he had his first run over hurdles, which is why we thought about the Flat.
“He’s got to a rating of 130 over hurdles having only beaten two ghosts in two starts but A P (McCoy) likes him. I’d be inclined to give him a break now and go hurdling but I’ll definitely put Sentry Duty in the totesport Cesarewitch. He was third here yesterday over a mile and six furlongs, when the trip was too short for him, and two miles and six was too far at Ascot so the Cesarewitch should be perfect.”
Jockey Eddie Ahern added: "This fellow had some nice runs for Mr Weld and things didn’t work out for him at Ascot so he went jumping, and won his race really well - he won very easily. I think the 8lb pull with Junior helped along with the clear passage and everything going right, including the fast gallop. I was absolutely shitting myself before the first race - like I was riding the 2/1on favourite in the Derby or something.
“If he was going bad, I would have probably switched out and I was afraid of getting boxed in. But he was travelling so well so I thought we would give it a go and take the gap. When you’re running over two miles and five furlongs, you need to go the shortest way and sticking to the rail was the shortest way for me.”
FIRST RACE PLACES
SPORTINGBET.COM GOODWOOD HANDICAP
JUNIOR A SENIOR AMONG ULTRA STAYERS
In the long-distance world of marathon horse races few are harder to pass than the David Pipe-trained Junior.
Carrying the colours of Middleham Park Racing he won the Ascot Handicap over two and a half miles last month, and today finished runner-up to Ghimaar (receiving 3lb) in Goodwood’s version of that contest, sponsored by Sportingbet.com. Former champion jockey Seb Sanders was in the seven-year-old’s saddle.
Pipe was busy at his West Country stables, but his father, Martin, said: “We’re pleased with that - he’s lost nothing in defeat. It was a different course from Ascot with the undulations of Goodwood, but considering he has gone up 8lb we’re delighted.
“He is likely to have a well-deserved rest now because he’s been in training for a long time, then come back and go jumping, but he will probably be given an entry for the Cesarewitch. He’s a dual-purpose horse and he’s always had ability, but we just have to keep him happy and enjoying his racing.”
Andrew Balding, who trains third-placed Relative Strength, reckons his horse could make a jumper one day. Balding said: “He’s proved today that he stays - he’s been on a fairly extensive swimming programme, and I reckon that has helped his stamina. He stayed better than I thought he would and certainly better than last year [when he was eighth in this contest].
“He deserves to win a race this year, because he’s been so consistent, and one day he should make someone a good jumper.”
JOCKEYS REPORT ON THE GOING AFTER THE FIRST RACE
Eddie Ahern, jockey of the winner, Ghimaar, who was sent of as the 6/1 favourite, thought the going: “Perfect. It is lovely ground.”
Seb Sanders, jockey of the one and a half length second, Junior, described the ground as: “Good.”
David Probert, jockey of third placed Relative Strength, said: “Nice ground.”
Fergus Sweeney, rider of Enjoy The Moment, said: “Lovely.”
Frankie Dettori, jockey of Hollins, said: “It is a little bit quicker than yesterday, more good to firm than good.”
Paul Hanagan, rider of Baddam, said: “It is the same as yesterday.”
Jimmy Fortune, jockey of Acambo, said: “Good to firm.”
Liam Keniry, on Hearthstead Dream, said: “It is good quick ground, with a lovely cover of grass.”
Nicky Mackay, partner of Mission Control, said: “Perfect.”
Hayley Turner, on board Ambrose Princess, said: “Good ground.”
VEUVE CLICQUOT VINTAGE STAKES
VINTAGE SHOW BY KING TORUS FOR TEAM HANNON
Richard Hannon trained his 50th Glorious Goodwood winner when King Torus bolted in by six lengths in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes - adding gloss to the achievement, Hannon also saddled the third, Major Art.
Richard Hughes, who rode King Torus for owner Sir Robert Ogden and added to his lead in the week’s Racing UK-sponsored leading jockey competition, said: “You wouldn’t know this horse is in the yard, because he wouldn’t win a bit of work. He’s heavy, he’s slobby and you wouldn’t back him going to the start. Then you grab hold of him in a race and he goes into overdrive.
“You wouldn’t think he would like fast ground, but he loves it. He will be better with a rail on his right - I wouldn’t be in favour of going left handed with him. “It was a serious performance. Everybody wanted to make the running - I was going a good clip and Frankie wanted to make it - so we were flying.
“I picked it up with a good two and a half furlongs to run after a strong gallop and he absolutely sprinted down that rail. Ideally, I would have preferred to have “filled him up” after going so fast but one arrived on my boots so I had to go and he took off. I couldn’t pull him up at the end and he kept galloping the whole way.
“He was a big dope for a good long time in the yard. He was so raw at Ascot through the race so I ended up racing on my own and I begged the boss to put one of these bits (a ring-bit) on because he loves to lean right. He’s heavier in your hands and he leans right, so I knew that he would love having a ring-bit on.
“He is a Classic contender after that - I haven’t done the last two furlongs at Goodwood as fast as that in a long time, not in a seven-furlong race.
“He definitely won’t be running on a left-handed track because it is against the grain for him. He has proven that he doesn’t like it - he was drawn wide at Ascot and I raced up the middle. I knew that he wasn’t doing a stroke that time but he was just raw and green.”
The winning trainer’s son, Richard Hannon Jr, watched the race with the horses’s breeder, Ballydoyle’s Aidan O’Brien, whose bloodstock interests are known as Whisperview Trading Ltd. Hannon Jr said of King Torus: “He was very impressive there considering he was carrying a 3lb penalty. We’ll probably go for the Dewhurst Stakes or Racing Post Trophy from here - we were thinking of a race in Italy, but after that performance we might step it up.
“Hughesie said he’s never finished so fast in a seven-furlong race at this track, yet the horse is very laid back. He’s by Oratorio, and they are all like that. I’m pleased for Sir Robert and grateful to Ross and Peter Doyle [bloodstock agents] who picked him out at the sales. We bought him for 30 grand [Euros] - it’s a shame the Goffs Million [sales race] is no longer available because he would have won that.
“Major Art ran well too. He looked uncomfortable throughout the race and is a little bit awkward. He’s a big horse, but he’ll progress and there’s a Listed race at Deauville he might go for. He’s a nice horse and it was only his third run.
“King Torus saves his best for the racetrack. Patrick Hills rode him yesterday and when I asked ‘how did he get on’ he said ‘fine’, because that’s all he does at home. Strong Suit [who won Royal Ascot’s Coventry Stakes] is probably the best we’ve got [among the two-year-olds] but you don’t know what this fellow’s got under the bonnet. He’s getting better and better and he’s so easy to ride he’ll get a longer trip.”
SECOND RACE PLACED QUOTES
VEUVE CLICQUOT VINTAGE STAKES (GROUP 2)
STENTORIAN TAKES SECOND
The Mark Johnston-trained Stentorian looks set for a step up in trip after finishing six lengths second to runaway winner King Torus in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.
“Second sucks but you can’t take anything away from the winner, he was very impressive,” said Johnston.
“Stentorian has been crying out to run over further and we’d probably think about the Royal Lodge Stakes at Ascot in September. That’s the next real possibility over a mile but I haven’t thought what he might do in between, we thought we’d see how he got on today.”
THIRD RACE WINNING QUOTES
SUSSEX STAKES (GROUP 1)
CANFORD SIMPLY SUPERB
Trainer Richard Hannon described Canford Cliffs as the best horse he had trained in 40 years with a licence after the three-year-old cruised to victory in a vintage renewal of the Group One Sussex Stakes.
Coming to Goodwood on the back of victories in the Irish 2,000 Guineas and St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, Canford Cliffs gave his rivals ground at the start of the Sussex Stakes.
After last year’s winner Rip Van Winkle hit the front, Richard Hughes and Canford Cliffs cruised up ominously before taking the race by a cosy neck.
“He’s the best I’ve ever trained,” said Hannon. “I love Paco Boy and my Guineas winners but this horse just has it all. That’s three Group 1s now. He’s a gorgeous horse and always has been and has a lovely turn of foot. I don’t think this is his ideal track, he’s better on a stiffer course like the Curragh.
“We took him to work at Kempton about 10 days ago and he worked brilliantly. Richard (Hughes) got off and said he’d improved about 7lb
“I’d love to keep him in training next year and if I can then I don’t want to give him too much more racing this year. There has been a lot of interest and enquiries from studs and it would be great if we could do a deal so that he could run as a four-year-old, maybe in the stud’s colours.
“While we might step Dick Turpin up to 10 furlongs, a mile is fine for this fellow and I suppose the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot is an obvious possibility as well as the Jacques Le Marois.
“He was actually the last yearling I managed to sell on, I don’t know why but nobody wanted him and he was two by the time I sold him and that was after I’d been for a long lunch with Robin (Heffer). I should have kept him, it would be nice to have been left with him.
“We weren’t sure what was going to happen with the O’Brien horses and we were a bit overtaken at the gate but then he got into a rhythm. I was worried that Richard had got a bit too far back at the gate. Richard said the ground was a bit loose on the inside and he just changed his legs a bit but then he picked up.
“Richard will give me a heart attack, I don’t know whether I’d be better hiding in the toilet when these races are being run!”
Hughes added: “He is a superstar. I rode him the other morning and said to Richard that he has improved out of all knowledge - nearly 10lb - and he looked at me as if I had two heads.
“He actually ran a bit rusty there and he never got into full flight. I didn’t want him to half jump out of the stalls because we were downhill and I didn’t want him latching on. So I missed it completely, got him in and he relaxed beautifully. They weren’t going that fast - the pacemaker was but we weren’t.
“Rip Van Winkle got three lengths on him and kicked first but I knew how good he was and there is one winning post. Canford Cliffs just switched leads in the last 100 yards and then I was in command. I still got him more or less on the bridle.”
THIRD RACE PLACED QUOTES
VAN WINKLE TO IMPROVE, SAYS O’BRIEN, AND LOCO PAYS FEE
A fast-and-late finish from Canford Cliffs proved decisive in today’s Group One £300,000 Sussex Stakes, although there was plenty of positives for the second and third.
Runner-up Rip Van Winkle, who was bidding to win the prize in consecutive years, conceded 8lb to the winner and was beaten just a neck, while Premio Loco, who had been supplemented for a fee of £19,500 by trainer Chris Wall on behalf of owner Bernard Westley, recouped that sum and made a profit.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien said of Rip Van Winkle: “We’re delighted with that because he’s progressed lovely from Royal Ascot [where he was unplaced in the Queen Anne Stakes], and we know there’s more to come.
“He got tired at Ascot and we knew he would progress from that and will do so again, because he got tired in the last half furlong here. At least he’s run a good race and he travels well and quickens well. I’ve no firm plans for him at this stage, although York [Juddmonte International] is a possibility.
“It was a great race and obviously he [Canford Cliffs] is a very good horse. It’s great to be here and great to be a part of it.”
Wall said of Premio Loco, who was tackling a Group One contest for the first time: “He’s run well and he’s run to his form because Dream Eater was at least as far, if not further behind us today compared to our previous run at Ascot.
“The owner has got his money back with interest and you never know until you try - I wanted to run him in a Group One while he was at the top of his form and had things in his favour. I didn’t want to wait. It’s a different league going up to Group One - I’ve had horses in the past who could win Group Two races, but to step up another level you really have to be special.
“Unless you’re very lucky and one falls in your lap you have to accept that. A good, hard-knocking horse like him will always win his Group Twos and Group Threes, but he’s always going to struggle in a Group One.
“He’s got what looks like a superficial cut on his hind leg, and it probably happened when he jumped out the stalls. We’ll get it checked out but I’m not using it as an excuse. George [Baker] didn’t pick up on it and it’s not bleeding profusely.
“He’s in some races in Germany where he won two Group Twos last year, and he’s in the Group Two Celebration Mile here at the end of August, so we’ll give him a little break and see where we go.”

A six-length victory over subsequent Group One Dewhurst Stakes third Xtension in the Group Two Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2009 saw Canford Cliffs acclaimed as an outstanding prospect. That impressive victory followed a seven-length maiden success on his debut at Newbury the previous month But the colt had to settle for third place on his third and final juvenile start in the Group One Prix Morny at Deauville on August 23. Sent off the odds-on favourite in France, Canford Cliffs was unable to unleash his usual powerful run and finished half a length behind Arcano and a neck behind subsequent champion two-year-old filly Special Duty. He returned to action on April 17 in the Group Three Greenham Stakes at Newbury. The 10/11 favourite led from the off and quickened three lengths clear approaching the distance but hung markedly to the left and was passed close home by stablemate Dick Turpin, going down by half a length. Canford Cliffs headed to Newmarket on May 1 for the 2000 Guineas, but again finished a place behind Dick Turpin as the pair came home second and third to the victorious Makfi. Connections retained their faith in the colt and were rewarded at the Curragh three weeks later when Canford Cliffs secured an impressive three-length success in the Irish 2,000 Guineas. He then went to Royal Ascot for the St James’s Palace Stakes on June 15 and a rematch with Dick Turpin. This time it was Canford Cliffs who emerged on top - with the colt quickening very well to lead inside the final 75 yards for a length triumph over his stablemate. Purchased for 46,000 euros as a foal at Goffs in November, 2007, Canford Cliffs was subsequently bought by Peter Doyle for £50,000 at the 2008 Doncaster St Leger Yearling Sale. Susan Roy, wife of BHA chairman Paul Roy, purchased a share in the colt the night before his Coventry Stakes win. The crack miler took on older horses for the first time in the £300,000 Group One Sussex Stakes today and emerged triumphant. Richard Hannon said at a Goodwood Racecourse media visit to his Wiltshire stables on July 20: “He has really matured this horse and put on a lot of weight. We took him to Kempton on Monday and he worked around there with one of the Queen’s - Quadrille. He has improved beyond recognition and I am sure he is getting better. He is certainly going the way to be being the best horse I have ever trained. We have now got him to settle - he settles nicely in his races and shows a good turn of foot. Now he drops his head and relaxes in races which he was not doing earlier in the season. I thought he would win the Guineas but he did not settle.”

Heffer Syndicate, Susan Roy and Mrs Instance
British Horseracing Authority chairman Paul Roy’s wife Susan has a share in Canford Cliffs along with the Heffer Syndicate and Mrs Instance. Roy grew up in Epsom, where his father was a butcher and lived next to Mill Reef’s jockey Geoff Lewis. He graduated from Liverpool University and rose to become co-president of Merrill Lynch’s Global Markets and Investment Banking Division before founding NewSmith Capital Partners, an independent investment management firm, in 2003. The Roys, who have six children and are based at Ascot, initially had shares in horses with Sue Bradburne in Scotland and have gone on to be highly-successful owners in the past decade. Wilko was successful in the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile while Sarava was the shock 70/1 winner of the 2002 Belmont Stakes. Roy describes his best day’s racing as when Sixties Icon won the 2006 St Leger at York. Other flagbearers include Dutch Art while he is also a member of the Searchers syndicate, who won last season’s Darley July Cup with Fleeting Spirit. Roy was recently re-elected for a second three-year term as BHA chairman and he is also a member of the Horserace Betting Levy Board, chairman of NewRiver Retail plc, a non-executive director of Cenkos plc, chairman of the University of Liverpool Development Foundation and vice-president of the Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital. Sussex Stakes winners - Canford Cliffs (2010)
Richard Hannon, who was born in Lewes, East Sussex, on May 30, 1945, has been training since 1970 when he took over the licence on the retirement of his father Henry (Harry). Originally, Hannon trained just from stables at East Everleigh in Wiltshire but, due to the increase in the size of his string (around 200 in 2010), he also has a base at nearby Herridge, a stud farm when bought 19 years ago, where he lives. His first winner came over hurdles at Chepstow on March 30, 1970, when Sir Nuilli was successful, while Ampney Prince provided his initial winner on the Flat in a Newbury maiden on April 17 the same year. Hannon made rapid progress as a trainer. A first Pattern race victory came courtesy of Crespinall in the 1972 Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom and the same filly went on to win the Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood later that season - his first Goodwood triumph. Classic success followed shortly afterwards, when Mon Fils caused a 50/1 shock in the 1973 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Don't Forgot Me (1987) and Tirol (1990) won the same Newmarket Classic for the yard, and both colts also triumphed in the Irish 2,000 Guineas. Hannon has made a particular reputation for his expertise with sprinters and two-year-olds, though his successes are by no means confined to those spheres. Lyric Fantasy was champion two-year-old filly in 1992 when her wins included the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes against older opposition at York, while Lemon Souffle achieved the same honour in 1993. His major Group One wins also include the Moyglare Stud Stakes with Lyric Fantasy, the Sussex Stakes in 2003 with Reel Buddy and in 2010 with Canford Cliffs, the Prix Royal-Oak (French St Leger) with Assessor as well as the Prix de l'Abbaye and the July Cup with Mr Brooks. He has trained 29 winners at Royal Ascot and was the leading trainer at the meeting this season with three victories. He was also top trainer, with five victories including all the two-year-old Group races, at the recent three-day Newmarket July meeting. He has sent out at least 100 winners in 19 of the last 20 years (including 2010), achieved with mostly cheaply bought horses purchased from the yearling and breeze-up sales in conjunction with bloodstock agent Peter Doyle, although his owner-breeder clients now include The Queen. His current star racehorses, who could be his best ever, include Paco Boy, who has won three Group One races including the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury this year and got within a neck of the world's best miler Goldikova in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot last time out, as well as the pair of very high-class three-year-olds Canford Cliffs (winner of this season's Irish 2,000 Guineas and St James's Palace Stakes plus today’s Sussex Stakes) and Dick Turpin (successful in the Group One Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly). There is also tremendous juvenile talent in the stable, with the likes of Coventry Stakes winner Strong Suit, Memory, Libranno and King Torus. At Goodwood, Hannon's record is outstanding. Since Crespinall set the ball rolling in 1972, he has gone on to record a total of 199 Goodwood victories (up to end of second day Glorious Goodwood 2010), making him the most successful current trainer at the course. Of those victories, 51 came at Glorious Goodwood (up to end of second day Glorious Goodwood 2010). He has been leading trainer at Glorious Goodwood twice, in 2008 with four successes over the five days and in 1993 with five wins. He collected the Rolls Royce/Dick Hern Memorial Award for training the most winners at Goodwood in both 2009 and 2008, with 17 and 15 successes respectively. He was also top trainer at the Sussex course in 2007 (joint - seven wins along with Marcus Tregoning), 2004 (10 wins), 1996 (joint - eight wins along with Paul Cole), 1995 (seven wins) and 1993 (11 wins). So far during 2010, he has amassed 11 Goodwood triumphs (up to end of first day Glorious Goodwood 2010), more than double the total of any other trainer. Richard Hannon was champion trainer in 1992 and he leads the standings for 2010 on number of winners trained. He has sent out 134 British winners in 2010 (up to & including Tuesday, July 27)) and amassed over £1.9 million in prize money. He is married to Jo and has six children - the triplets Richard Jnr (his assistant trainer), Henry and Lizzie (who is married to stable jockey Richard Hughes) - Fanny (who is married to trainer Sylvester Kirk), Claire and Julie. Sussex Stakes winners - Canford Cliffs (2010); Reel Buddy (2003)
Richard Hughes was born in Ireland on January 11, 1973, and served his apprenticeship with his father Dessie, a former top-class National Hunt rider who trains in Co Kildare and won the 2004 and 2005 Champion Hurdles at Cheltenham with Hardy Eustace. He had his first ride at Naas on March 19, 1988, when finishing 10th of 15 and enjoyed his first success on Viking Melody at Roscommon that August. He came over to Britain in 1994. He was appointed as Prince Khalid Abdulla’s retained jockey in 2001 but that association came to an end at the end of 2007. He rides regularly for Richard Hannon, to whose daughter Lizzie he is married. The 5ft 9in Hughes has, like his father, also ridden winners over jumps but concentrates on the Flat. His biggest successes include the 2004 French 2,000 Guineas on American Post, the 2003 French Oaks on Nebraska Tornado, the 1996 Italian Derby on Bahamian Knight, the 1996 Group One Premio Vittorio di Capua on Mistle Cat, the 2001 Group One Prix d’Ispahan on Observatory and the 2002 Group One French 1,000 Guineas on Zenda. Hughes had a long-awaited first British Group One success when Oasis Dream landed the 2003 Darley July Cup and he went on to land the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes on the same horse. Indian Ink gave him a Group One success at Royal Ascot when taking the 2007 Coronation Stakes. He has enjoyed a stellar 2010 so far, winning two Group Ones on Canford Cliffs, the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Abu Dhabi Irish 2,000 Guineas, as well as scoring at the highest level in the Prix Jean Prat on Dick Turpin and in the totesport.com Lockinge Stakes on Paco Boy plus gaining plenty of triumphs on Richard Hannon-trained two-year-olds.

FOURTH RACE - WINNER & SECOND
RACING UK HANDICAP
VERDANT HOLDS LATE THRUST OF SECOND
Verdant gamely held off the challenge of Mataaleb by a short-head in the £50,000 Racing UK Handicap over 12 furlongs at Goodwood today.
The three-year-old son of Singspiel, ridden by Ryan Moore and trained by Sir Michael Stoute, is owned by Khalid Abdulla and his racing manager Lord Grimthorpe declared: “Verdant is a progressive sort and a mile and a half looks to be his right distance.
“He has got into the race a bit later than some from a slightly wide draw and has quickened at the right moment. He was giving 10lb to the second so it was not a bad performance.
“He was game - he found a bit more when the runner-up came to him.
“We will have to think about Listed and Group races but these valuable handicaps are worth more than Listed races and Group Threes.
“I am not sure about further - I think a mile and a half suits him well. We will look at all options including the Ebor but he is more likely to remain at today’s trip as he has come up from 10 furlongs.
“He is a good looking horse and he knows it. Sir Michael is pretty good with these kind of horses - the raw material was there and he has come on really well.”
Moore added: “I thought the second had got me but my horse found a bit extra.
“The extra two furlongs have helped him today. We were a bit further back than we would have liked but the pace steadied.
“I followed Hughsie (Richard Hughes) through and we were in a nice spot.”
Jeff Pearce, trainer of the Jimmy Fortune-ridden Mataaleb, commented: “I thought mine had won for a second but when I saw the still I knew my fate.
“He has run fantastic. Ten days ago his muscles were all pulled and he had three to four days off work. That might be his way - some need training and some don’t.”
FIFTH RACE QUOTES
MARKEL INTERNATIONAL FILLIES’ MAIDEN
STEP BACK IN TRIP SUITS MORTITIA
The Brian Meehan-trained Mortitia, who had finished fourth on her first two starts over seven furlongs, benefitted from a drop back in trip to take the Markel International Maiden Fillies’ Stakes by a short-head from Qenaa.
“I think seven furlongs was too far for her and, although I think she has improved from her first two starts, I think she’s better over six,” said Meehan.
“I was impressed with that because it was a rough race with a slow pace. Paul (Hanagan) said he’d never been as slow in a six-furlong two-year-old maiden.
“I’ve always liked her and thought she’d win at Newbury on her second start and I think she’s certainly a stakes filly. We’ll plan a suitable campaign now.”
Paul Hanagan, leading the race for the jockeys’ title ahead of the champion Ryan Moore, got off the mark at Goodwood this year on Mortitia in the Markel International Fillies’ Maiden.
The Northern-based jockey said: “I thought that it was going to be a long week. I got beat a head in the first race yesterday and it’s tough here, so it’s great to get on the board.
“Every time that I come here, it is always for a big meeting, and it’s never the Mondays or the Tuesdays. I am probably a bit hard on myself sometimes but it is hard to have winners here because it is the best racing.
“I have never gone so slow in a six-furlong race in all of my life, it was just unbelievable. She was keen but it might have been a blessing in disguise - it kept her balanced and held together, which is what she needed.
“When she got in to a battle, I really liked her temperament. She seemed to put her head down and wanted it more, so I was really pleased. When they go so slow, it is always going to be messy and I got a little check but I got away with it.”
Mark Johnston, trainer up runner-up Qenna who was making her second racecourse appearance, said: “She ran a bit green again, but very different from the first time. Richard [Hills] said he felt he had to commit a bit early and I’m not so sure about that . . . it turned into a bit of a sprint. She’s come on a long way and hopefully she’ll come on again.”
EBF FILLIES’ & MARES’ HANDICAP
MOORE IN THE MONEY ON CHEVELEY PARK’S DANCE EAST
Jockey Ryan Moore completed a 15.5/1 double at Glorious Goodwood today when gaining a very narrow victory on Dance East in this distaffers’ handicap.
Moore, who had earlier won the Racing UK Handicap on Verdant - also gaining victory by a short head - wore the colours of David and Patricia Thompson’s Cheveley Park Stud on Dance East, who is trained by Jeremy Noseda. Newmarket-based Noseda was gaining his second victory at the meeting.
John Marsh, senior manager at Cheveley Park Stud, said: “We bought her dam, Russian Dance, a half-sister to the very useful Saratoga Springs, and this is the second foal to race out of the mare. Because this filly was so nice as a yearling we sent the mare back to Shamardal [the sire of Dance East] and we have a full sister at home, in addition to another two-year-old by Selkirk in training with Jeremy.
“Things didn’t go right for her on her previous outing - there was a muddling pace and she was the only filly against colts. She was rated 91 before this and she will go up again for this so there are not a lot of options.
“Ryan said she was tough and fought all the way to the line and the step up in trip helped.”
Paul Cole, trainer of second-placed Seradim, said: "I always thought of her as a miler but thought we would try this and it nearly paid off. She’s a nice filly but hard to win with. I thought the winner put in a very good performance for a three-year-old."

REGULATIONS RULES IN FINALE
Matthew Salaman saddled his first winner at the Glorious Goodwood meeting when Rulesn’regulations, bred and part-owned by his former trainer father Taffy, took the concluding Sportingbet.com EBF Classified Stakes by two and three-quarter lengths.
“This win was expected,” said Salaman. “In the past he has had a lot of problems - he got colic, then pricked his foot and had a virus but today he was able to show his ability. George (Baker) said he would have won last time at Ascot if the gaps had come and he could have a big handicap in him.
“George said that he might stay a mile and that would open up more possibilities.”
TORUS CUT FOR GUINEAS AFTER VINTAGE PERFORMANCE
King Torus has been cut to 12/1 (from 20/1) by totesport for next year’s 2000 Guineas after running away with the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
Richard Hannon’s colt sat just behind Stentorian early on but put the race to bed with a devastating turn of foot to score by six lengths and is now the second-favourite for the Guineas behind stablemate Strong Suit.
‘King Torus produced a very impressive performance under a penalty in the Vintage Stakes and although it’s obviously early days yet, Richard Hannon seems to have a strong hand for next year’s classics,’ said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
A maximum field of 20 has been declared for Friday’s totesport Mile at Goodwood and Mark Johnston’s Sea Lord heads the market with the sponsors at 9/2.
totesport Mile – sponsors bet: 9/2 Sea Lord, 6 Oasis Dancer, 7 Invisible Man, 8 Marajaa, 10 Acrostic, 14 Ransom Note, 16 Al Muheer, Mahadee, Royal Destination, 20 Aspectus, Irish Heartbeat, Signor Peltro, Tartan Gunna, 25 Charlie Cool, Proponent, Vitznau, 33 Beauchamp Xerxes, Coasting, Dunn’o, 40 Spectait.

TURNER AND FORTUNE GIVEN THREE-DAY BANS
Jockeys Hayley Turner and Jimmy Fortune were given three-day suspensions by Goodwood’s stewards today.
Turner weighed in 2lb heavier than her horse’s allotted weight following her ride on the Michael Scudamore-trained Ambrose Princess in the Sportingbet.com Goodwood Handicap. Having heard her evidence the stewards found her in breach of Rule (B)67.7 and stood her down for three days, 11 to 13 August.
Following the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes Fortune was found to have caused interference while riding Chilworth Lad. The stewards deemed Fortune was guilty of careless riding for allowing his mount to interfere with unplaced Surrey Star, who in turn hindered sixth-placed Crown Prosecutor.
Fortune’s suspension also runs from 11 to 13 August.
TWO MORE JOCKEYS RECEIVE BANS TODAY
Joseph O’Brien, rider of the fourth Beethoven in the Sussex Stakes was found by the stewards to have used his whip down the shoulder in the forehand position. He was suspended for one day - Wednesday, August 11.
Royston Ffrench, who partnered eighth Jutland in the Racing UK Handicap, was deemed by the stewards to have allowed his mount to drift right-handed and interfere with Grey Bunting. This careless riding brought him a three-day ban - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, August 11, 12 & 13.
TODAY’S GOING AT 9.30AM - THE SAME AS YESTERDAY
Round course: Good to Firm, Good in places
The GoingStick reading at 9.15am was 8.3 (8.1 yesterday).
Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Courser, said: “It was dry overnight and we applied six millimetres of water to the first two furlongs of the mile course - from the mile start to the six-furlong pole.
“After a successful day yesterday, we are offering similar going today and once again there is tremendous racing to enjoy.
“We will be reviewing the going late this afternoon to see if more irrigation is desirable.
“GoingStick readings for the stands’ side and far side will be published on Thursday morning, in time for the draw for the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup, after the temporary rail has been removed from the far side of the straight course.”
2m 5f: Flip Start.
Straight course: stands’ side.
Round course: inside except 1m 4f which is outside
The running rail from the six-furlong marker on the lower bend on the far side to the winning post has been dolled out approximately six yards.
The last three furlongs of this dolling out (from the three-furlong pole to the winning post) will be removed after racing this evening to provide fresh ground.
The top bend has been dolled out three yards, with both these measures increasing race distances by approximately 15 yards.
Yesterday’s opening day crowd came to 12,968, down 5 per cent on the Tuesday attendance of 13,767 for 2009
Tuesday’s totepool on-course cash turnover at Goodwood was £365,496, down 3.6 per cent on the £379,305 bet on the same day last year.
Advance sales were 692 down but are better for the rest of the week. Membership has been strong this year and, over the week, hospitality is 17 per cent up on last year.

HANNON & HUGHES THE MEN IN FORM
Trainer Richard Hannon and stable jockey Richard Hughes look set to profit on day two of Glorious Goodwood.
They teamed up for a double (plus a runner-up) on the festival’s opening card, and seem very likely to be involved with three favourites during the second afternoon, when Canford Cliffs, who carries their hopes in the £300,000 Group One Sussex Stakes (3.25), is poised to become the meeting’s headline act.
Hannon, who operates from two yards near the village of Collingbourne Ducis in Wiltshire, needs a single success to reach the 50-mark at Glorious Goodwood, and King Torus could well become the landmark achiever when tackling the £80,000 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes (2.45). King Torus has won at Leicester and Newmarket this season, yet if he fails today Hannon has excellent back-up in the shape of Major Art, a Lingfield winner on his latest start and partnered by Ryan Moore.
Canford Cliffs faces serious opposition in the Sussex Stakes - most notably from last year’s winner Rip Van Winkle - but after victories in the Irish 2,000 Guineas and St James’ Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot he looks hard to beat in today’s seven-runner contest.
Hughes and Hannon then team up with the debutante filly Yashila, a well-bred two-year-old who tackles the Markel International Fillies’ Maiden (4.35), and they close the day in partnership with Oratory in the Sportingbet.com EBF Classified Stakes (5.45). The two men won the closing race yesterday with Martyr, who, like Oratory, races for a Highclere Thoroughbred Racing syndicate - it is hard to think of an owner/trainer/jockey triumvirate in more potent form.
Hannon seems very likely to pass the £2,000,000 prize-money mark for the season during this afternoon (he needs to bag just over £77,000), and while he currently lies second to Sir Michael Stoute in Britain’s leading trainers’ table, trailing the pacesetter by nearly £440,000, he will be within striking distance should Glorious Goodwood continue to yield gold for his owners.
Hughes, whose first-day double means he heads the Racing UK Leading Jockey award given to the most successful rider at Glorious Goodwood, also takes the mount on Contract Caterer for Pat Eddery in the Racing UK Handicap (4.00) and Water Gipsy for Gary Moore in the EBF Fillies’ & Mares’ Handicap (5.10). Bookmakers Blue Square make Hughes their 4/6 favourite to remain in pole position for this particular jockeys’ title, and they also offer 6/4 Ryan Moore, 10/1 Kieren Fallon and 14/1 Jim Crowley. Frankie Dettori, who has ridden more winners at Goodwood than any other contemporary jockey, is a 16/1 shot to add to his four festival championships.
ECLAIR SWEET FOR PUNTERS IN GOODWOOD OPENER
Lady Eclair has put bookmakers in a sticky situation on day two of Glorious Goodwood.
The Mark Johnston-trained four-year-old filly carries joint top-weight of 9st 10lb in the opening Sportingbet.com Goodwood Handicap (2.10), and has never raced beyond two miles - today’s contest is held over a further five furlongs - yet she hails from the mighty Mark Johnston stable, and, more pertinently for punters, she gets the thumbs-up from Tom Segal, aka Pricewise of the Racing Post.
Segal’s selections invariably create a wave of interest from punters, and bookmakers have been ducking the shells and shortening Lady Eclair’s price since early this morning.
Ladbrokes chopped her price to 7/1 from 9/1, William Hill slashed her to 13/2 from 9/1, while Coral, a firm which clearly suspected trouble, offered just 7/1 at the start of play but reduced the filly’s price a further half point to 13/2. Blue Square’s 10/1 was meat and drink to hungry Eclair seekers, and not surprisingly those odds tumbled too, settling at a lunchtime revision of 13/2.
Other betting moves saw Ladbrokes taking each-way sums on Dream Eater (20/1) and Beethoven (33/1) for the Sussex Stakes (3.25), in which Canford Cliffs’ position as odds-on favourite has opened up plenty of big-priced options for win-and-place punters (even though a field of seven runners has cramped their potential for profit).
Coral offers 8/11 Canford Cliffs and is looking to take him on, a position that may leave them on a cliff ledge, while William Hill has seen support for Rip Van Winkle, and reduced his odds from 3/1 to 5/2.
Verdant and Contract Caterer are movers in the Racing UK Handicap (4.00) - Verdant is 6/1 from 7/1 with Blue Square and 11/2 from 13/2 with Coral, while Contract Caterer, the mount of Racing UK’s leading Glorious Goodwood jockey Richard Hughes, is 9/1 from 10/1 with Coral and 8/1 from 10/1 with Blue Square and William Hill. Berling, who is owned by Abba’s Benny Andersson, is another mover for William Hill in this contest, and his odds are now 5/1 from 11/2.
Kieren Fallon’s mount in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes (2.45), Crown Prosecutor, has been a threat to Ladbrokes and that firm’s early show of 9/4 is now 2/1.
