GLORIOUS GOODWOOD, 2010
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
FOURTH DAY, FRIDAY, JULY 30

ALL SET TO END ON A TRIUMPHANT NOTE


After five fab days on the Sussex Downs the team at Glorious Goodwood are ready for a fitting climax to one of racing’s great events.


“We’re aiming to go out on a good note,” said clerk of the course Seamus Buckley at the conclusion of racing on day four, and with the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes and Bluesq.com Stewards’ Cup as highlights tomorrow, Goodwood is about to serve up a wonderful finale.


Preparations for tomorrow have already begun, and Buckley said: “There is the possibility of some passing showers overnight and into tomorrow morning, but we’re going to water the top bend to ensure some nice ground for the fillies who take part in the Blue Square Nassau Stakes, and we are also taking the rail down in the same area to provide fresh turf.


“We’re going to put ten to 12 millimetres of water on the track from the mile and two furlongs start to the home turn, but we’ve decided to leave the straight alone.


“We’ve had a great week, with more highly-entertaining racing today, and we’re looking forward to ending in style.”

Bluesq.com STEWARDS CUP - A SPRINGBOARD TO STARDOM

Borderlescott’s victory in yesterday’s Group Two Audi King George Stakes served as a reminder of the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup’s standing as one of the season’s premier sprint handicaps.


Robin Bastiman’s charge landed the six-furlong heritage handicap in 2006, went down by a short-head when second in 2007 and was beaten less than a length when third in 2008. Borderlescott is one of sprinters down the years to have used the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup as a springboard to Group One glory, the eight-year-old having triumphed in the 2008 and 2009 renewals of the Nunthorpe Stakes.


Other Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup winners to have graduated to victory at the highest level in recent times include Lochsong (1992), Coastal Bluff (1996) and Patavellian (2003).


The last-named went on to clinch the Group One Prix de l’Abbaye on his next start for trainer Roger Charlton, who will bid for a second consecutive win in tomorrow’s race with Blue Square’s current 7/1 market leader, Genki, drawn 25 of the 28 runners. Charlton has won the race three times in all, Harmonic Way setting the ball rolling in 1999.


Sir Michael Stoute will bid to equal Charlton’s tally with 8/1 second-favourite Enact, who will jump from stall 27 and was last seen finishing runner-up to the consistent Hawkeyethenoo at Newmarket in May. Stoute’s two previous wins in the race came with the three-year-olds Alphadamus (1973) and Autumn Sunset (1983).

There are only two three-year-olds in this year’s contest. Iver Bridge Lad is a 25/1 shot for trainer John Ryan, while Bastiman’s Singeur, bottom weight with 8st 12lb, is a 33/1 chance under Tom Queally.


Johnny Mudball (10/1) staked his claims for consideration when winning over the distance at Newcastle on June 26 for trainer Tom Dascombe, who is also set to saddle Wokingham seventh Noverre To Go (14/1).


Dandy Nicholls is always a man to watch in major sprint handicaps and the Thirsk handler, successful previously with Tayseer (2000) and Gift Horse (2005) as a trainer and Soba (1982) as a jockey, will rely on Wokingham runner-up Striking Spririt (14/1), last year’s runner-up Evens And Odds (25/1) and Sonny Red (40/1).


Another Yorkshire-based trainer with a strong contingent is Richard Fahey. He has five arrows strung to his bow, headed by top-weight Knot In Wood (20/1), who has finished third, sixth and third in the past three renewals. Castles In The Air (16/1), owned by Channel Four Racing’s Jim McGrath, won the Victoria Racing Club International Stakes at Ascot last Saturday, Kaldoun Kingdom (16/1) was a narrow second to Hawkeyethenoo at York the same day, Johannes (16/1) won the Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint at this meeting last year and Prime Exhibit (40/1) was on the mark at Wolverhampton last time.

Local trainer William Knight, fresh from success in yesterday’s Artemis Goodwood Cup with Illustrious Blue, is looking forward to saddling Palace Moon (8/1), who was fifth to the Chris Dwyer-trained Sir Gerry (33/1) in the Listed Cathedral Stakes at Salisbury in June.


Last season’s Ayr Gold Cup winner Jimmy Styles (20/1) is primed to represent trainer Clive Cox, while the in form Richard Hannon relies on dual Listed winner Edge Closer (33/1).

Coutts Glorious Stakes (Group Three)

REDWOOD GIVES HILLS A GLORIOUS 50

Redwood is proving to be something of a landmark horse for Barry Hills. The four-year-old gave the trainer his 50th Glorious Goodwood victory in the Coutts Glorious Stakes, having previously given Hills a 300th success at Newmarket racecourse when winning the Listed Feilden Stakes in April, 2009.


The Khalid Abdulla-owned colt delivered his challenge wide in the straight under Michael Hills and showed a good turn of foot to pass Sri Putra and win the mile and a half contest by a length and a half at odds of 7/1.


Redwood was landing his first Group race success, having finished runner-up in the Group Two Princess Of Wales’s Stakes at Newmarket last time.


The winning trainer said: “I haven’t got anything in mind for him as such, I’ll have to discuss it with the Prince. There is the Canadian International and a race in Turkey and I am quite keen to run him in America at some point but I would only want to race abroad once this year as it takes a bit out of them.


“I would very much like him to stay in training next year whether with me or in America.”

Michael Hills commented: “He had a few problems as a three-year-old but he has come back to form and ran well in the Hardwicke Stakes and at Newmarket. He’s been banging on the door a few times and we’ve always believed in him.


“It was a nice, even, fair gallop. He is a bit hot and cold so when he had his moody spell in the race I left him to it and he came good. When we came to get the leader he showed a nice turn of foot. and he stays well. When my fella showed his turn of foot, I knew we had the better of Sri Putra.


“He ran a very good race at Newmarket and travelled a lot sweeter today - when he travels, he has got a very good turn of foot. He is growing up and he is improving with racing.


“He won the Feilden Stakes and then ran in the Dante but had a problem, so he had a lot of time off and it has taken us a while to get him back his proper form. His best season is to come.


“It’s beautiful ground - they have done a really good job from yesterday to today. It has a nice dig in it.”

Charlie Hills, assistant trainer to his father, said: “He has run some terrific races this year and he got his just desserts today. He was beaten by a very good horse at Newmarket and he probably ran to form because he was beaten by a similar distance by Sans Frontieres at Royal Ascot.

“He has got a terrific turn of foot and he showed that today. We were drawn one - he’s never been the best starter in the world so we thought that we would just follow them.”



First Race placed quotes
Coutts Glorious Stakes

PUTRA PUTS IT IN FOR JARVIS STRING

The opening race on day four of Glorious Goodwood ended with an absorbing final-furlong duel between Redwood and Sri Putra.


Sri Putra, conceding 3lb, had to give best by a length and a half, but he was a length and three-quarters clear of third-placed Traffic Guard and seems sure to win again this year.


Fast ground is vital to the four-year-old said Roger Varian, assistant to Michael Jarvis, the trainer of Sri Putra. Varian added: “We’re disappointed to lose, but very pleased with the horse, who seemed to get a mile and a half well [it was his first attempt at the distance].


“I thought he had the field covered two furlongs out and the winner was off the bridle, but he came home quick. We weren’t sure our fellow would get the trip and perhaps we held on to him a little longer than ideal, allowing the winner to come onto us with momentum. It was a pretty solid race. ”

Sri Putra was runner-up to Twice Over in the Group One Coral Eclipse Stakes on his previous outing, and these two consistent efforts suggest he is surely going to win again soon. Varian said: “Seeing him get the trip so well has opened up our options, and there’s a race over a mile and a half at Deauville in the second half of August that might suit him. However, he must have fast ground, and he’s a horse that could be one to go international with later in the season, when the ground in Britain is often getting a little softer.”



GOING AFTER THE FIRST RACE

Michael Hills, jockey of the 7/1 winner Redwood, described the going as: “A little bit quicker than yesterday.”

Phillip Robinson, jockey of the one and a half length second Sri Putra, said: “ It is good fast ground.”

Tom Queally, rider of third placed Traffic Guard, said: “Quick.”

William Buick, rider of the 5/4 beaten favourite Duncan, thought the going: “Good to firm.”

Kieren Fallon, on board Manighar, said: “Good.”

Ryan Moore, rider of Kingdom Of Fife, said: “Good to firm.”

Frankie Dettori, on Whispering Gallery, said: “The same as yesterday.”

Shane Kelly, on Golden Sword, said: “Good.”




Second Race winner’s quotes
Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint

DANDY CLEANS UP WITH SPRINT RACE ONE-TWO

Yorkshire trainer Dandy Nicholls doesn’t just win sprint handicaps, he lands the places too.


He saddled the first and second in today’s Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint - a good omen for his three runners in tomorrow’s Bluesq.com Stewards’ Cup - when Joseph Henry scraped home from Victoire De Lyphar. This was Nicholls’ fifth win in the race in 11 seasons, and the winning jockey, David Probert, was riding for the stable for the first time.


Nicholls, who ran six in the contest, said: “If you get given the right horses you can run them in the right races and win. That’s what they pay me to do. Fair play to the staff, the yard and the horses because they all ran blinders. It’s hard to come to a big meeting and get all the horses to run well on the day.


“I’m pleased for Billy Hughes [Joseph Henry’s owner] who has been a long-time patron of the yard.”

Nicholls was also full of praise for Victoire De Lyphar, a three-year-old of size and scope. He said: “Patrick Haslam bought the horse and I inherited him from there. There’s been no point hiding around the corner with him, but he’s very nice. He’s young and big and where he will end up I don’t know, but he’s one of the best horses I’ve trained. He’s a lovely horse.”

Winning owner Hughes said: “I’m absolutely elated. He’s so often been the bridesmaid, but today’s his day. Dandy trains him so well because he’s taken us to all the big tracks and all the festival meetings like York, Ascot and Goodwood. It’s a pleasure to be involved with him.”

David Probert added: “Victoire De Lyphar has got plenty of early toe so I followed him and this fellow has won over a mile, so I just needed to keep him going forward. Fair play to him, he has knuckled down and done the job well.

“The winners yesterday in the sprints came down the stands’ to middle side and I wanted to edge over a little bit. He jumped out well and he has done it alright in the end.”

Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap

TIDDLIWINKS AND WILDCAT - CONNECTIONS REFLECT

North Yorkshire trainer Kevin Ryan is looking ahead at two of the season’s biggest sprint handicaps after Tiddliwinks finished fourth in the six-furlong Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint under Neil Callan.


The 10/1 shot, who was drawn in stall one, finished less than a length and a half behind the victorious Joseph Henry and was only a nose behind third-placed Wildcat Wizard.


Ryan revealed: “He ran very well and was a bit unfortunate really. He only had one other horse to race with down the stands’ side rail so he has probably been unlucky.


“He ran a great race to be fourth at York last Saturday and another good race here - I think there is a big one in him.


“We will look at the Portland at Doncaster and we will most likely put him in the Ayr Gold Cup too.”

Wildcat Wizard, sent off at 25/1 and drawn in stall 20, was a head and a length and a quarter behind the victorious Joseph Henry and runner-up Victoire De Lyphar, both of whom are trained by Dandy Nicholls.

The gelding’s trainer Paul Cole said: “He has run a good race so we’re pleased. He likes these straight tracks, they suit him well. He was wiped out at Windsor in June and had a bad draw last time.

“He had to swap twice here so he has run very well to finish fourth from where he was. If he hadn’t had to do that he would have been right there.”


Third race win quotes -
totesport Mile (Heritage Handicap)

FFRENCH AND JOHNSTON LORD IT IN totesport MILE

Royston Ffrench guided Sea Lord to a battling front-running victory in the totesport mile to give trainer Mark Johnston his fourth success in the heritage handicap, following on from Fly To The Stars (1997), Riberac (2001) and Laa Rayb (2009).


The 6/1 second favourite jumped from stall 16 and made all for a three quarters of a length triumph over Invisible Man, the pair clear.


Ffrench commented: “It’s very tough to win from the front like that. You have got to get the fractions right and you need a horse that can do it. Fortunately, I had a good horse on my side. Mr Johnston’s horses don’t know how to give in. It was a typical Mark Johnston winner - a great performance.


“The draw is vital in a race like that. You have got to use it to your advantage and I was able to do that.


“I spent some time riding in California a few years back and I am able to clock the race in my head. It’s like anything, the more you do something it becomes second nature. In a race like that you are talking about 12 to 13 seconds a furlong in the early stages then 11 or 10 seconds, if the horse is good enough, in the later stages.


“I knew something was coming to challenge about a furlong and a half out but my fella found more and kept going.”
Johnston is considering running the tough three-year-old Cape Cross colt in tomorrow’s Listed Bluesq.com “For Five Places In Stewards’ Cup” Stakes.


He said: “It’s a far from easy race to win and we had a terrible dilemma with a horse like this, who is above handicap level really. Do you run in a handicap for the prize money, when you are in the lap of the gods a little bit, or do you go for the Listed race tomorrow, which is what he should be in?

“I have so many handicappers and it does get a little bit frustrating when the good horses are getting beaten by the weight rather than by horses of better ability. That is just a sad fact of handicap racing - it’s great when a horse like this wins but, when they get beaten, you feel that you should have out them in a level weights race. I am sure that the future for him will be in Listed or Group company.
“He is declared to run tomorrow and, whether he can realistically do that, I will have to see how he is. It’s a possibility but it would be a lot to ask of him and we would be putting our heads on the block. There is the question of whether the incentive is there if there is any chance of doing any damage to the horse. We have a bit of thinking to do.

“He looks really well and he hasn’t really had a hard campaign. People say that he has won quite a few times but he doesn’t do a lot at home in between. I am forever trying to stress that he hasn’t galloped since winter time - we just give him routine cantering and he goes to the racecourse to do his gallop.

“Invisible Man looked like he was going incredible well and I wasn’t feeling confident heading into the final furlong because the runner-up loomed up very easily but he always finds more.

“I feel a little bit sorry for Frankie (Dettori on the runner-up) because it should have been his ride at Newmarket and he had to ride the Godolphin horse here. I am sure that he will ride the horse again in the future but they were two nice horses in the finish.”

Third Race placed quotes
totesport Mile (Heritage Handicap)

INVISIBLE MAN MAKES HIS PRESENCE FELT

Invisible Man has become a very visible horse in major mile handicaps this season.


He won the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot last month, and today finished runner-up in the totesport Mile behind Sea Lord. The result was a one-two for son and father, for Sea Lord is owned by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, while Invisible Man carries the colours of Godolphin’s Sheikh Mohammed.


Saeed bin Suroor, who trains Invisible Man, said: “I’m really pleased, because the horse has always shown plenty of class and speed and the blinkers have helped him a lot. We put them on him at Ascot and it made a difference.


“He was simply beaten by a better horse today, but a furlong out I thought we were going to win. We will keep him to handicaps and take a look at what is available over this trip at York.”

York is also likely to be the destination for the Nigel Tinkler-trained Webbow, who finished fourth in last year’s totesport Mile and today went one place better.

Tinkler said: “He ran marvellously again. He was given a lovely ride by Louis [Philippe Beuzelin] and we couldn’t be more pleased. It would have been nice to beat the two sheikhs, but at least we are up there with our horse. He’s netted more than £12,000 for his efforts.”

Webbow has not won for three years, but Tinkler said: “We’re going for the big pots, and I suppose he could have won a little race on today’s effort, but he’s giving the owners great fun and that’s what racing is all about.”



Fourth Race winner’s quotes
Tanqueray Richmond Stakes

HANNON’S INVINCIBLE TEAM OF JUVENILES

Trainer Richard Hannon and jockey Richard Hughes combined for their sixth victory at this year’s Glorious Goodwood when Libranno took the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes.

Libranno, who was bred by his owner, Oliver McDowell, became the duo’s fourth juvenile winner during the festival, and yet they claimed the best two-year-old in their team has been happily stabled back home in Wiltshire - that’s Strong Suit, who won Royal Ascot’s Coventry Stakes and is likely to run next at the Curragh in the Group One Phoenix Stakes.


Hannon said of Libranno: “We took him to Newmarket dead raw and he bounced out the stalls that day and gave us all a bit of a shock. Then we went back to the July course and we thought he had a bit of a chance there, and after winning that he came here with a 3lb penalty. I can’t say anything bad about the horse.”

Asked which races he plans to target with his omnipotent juveniles, Hannon said: “I don’t know how to steer them at the moment. Strong Suit will go for the Phoenix, King Torus [who won the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Stakes on Wednesday] could go to Doncaster for the Champagne Stakes while Casual Glimpse could be supplemented for the Gimcrack Stakes, but this horse I don’t know. We’ll have to teach him a different way of racing before we go up in trip - he’s got so much speed and I don’t know why on breeding. He was out there on his own today and staring at the people so it wasn’t easy for him, but you have to let him use his speed. It’s a nice problem to have and we’ll sort it out.”

Hughes said: “I didn’t know this horse was in the yard until one morning I rode him and he was a little bit keen so I said give him a run and get it out of his system. And he won. Today he hit the gate running and I was worried he was doing too much in front with his penalty, but that’s how he kills off his rivals. A race like the Prix Morny might suit him, but it could come a bit too soon.”

HUGHES SAYS MORE ABOUT LIBRANNO

Interviewed by Lydia Hislop on Racing UK, Richard Hughes said: “I was a little bit worried down at the start because he was very tight. I took my feet out of the irons just to get him relaxed as I could and get him breathing - I couldn’t feel his belly going for nearly a minute.

“I got my girth redone a little bit and then he started to breath. I was happy by the time we round behind the gate - I would have hated to get there and make him lead because he wasn’t quite happy.

“Us jockeys know how important the work the stalls handlers do is. They are horsemen and they love horses. I asked the lad who led me in to stand with the horse for two seconds and not dive under the stall in case the horse followed him. He gave the horse a pat in the neck and that is where you win or lose your races.

“He jumped extremely fast and I was tanking down the hill. The boss said not to try and organise him, let him use himself, but the 3lb penalty was in my head because we were going down the hill so fast. Goodwood is not a nice place to be when you are in the middle of the track on your own with a two-year-old. The last two furlongs were very lonely but he grinded it out.

“I think that he kills horses off halfway through the race - if you look at the sectionals, he burns them off there. He had a rail at Newmarket to run up against and wasn’t as lonely but I would say that we went about the same speed today, a good gallop from end to end. Horses seem to find it hard to lie up against him.


“He is a big strong horse and I think that he is very fast. I couldn’t put my hand on my heart and say that he will get a mile. It’s up to the boss where he goes now but I presume that it will be over six furlongs. You would like to say the Prix Morny, although it might come too quick, and there is the Middle Park as well - it will probably be one of the two.”

Tanqueray Richmond Stakes (Group Two)

PLACED HORSES PLEASE

Libranno gave Richard Hannon yet another major two-year-old winner in the Group Two Tanqueray Richmond Stakes but connections of runner-up The Paddyman and third-placed Roayh were delighted with the performances of their respective runners.


The Paddyman battled hard in an attempt to reach the winner but had to settle for second best in the six-furlong contest, a length and a quarter behind the winner.


William Haggas’ charge landed a Yarmouth maiden by eight lengths on his previous start and handled the marked step up in class admirably.

The trainer’s wife, Maureen Haggas, said: “He ran a great race and we are thrilled to bits with that. He dug deep and tried his guts out but just couldn’t get there.


“He’s not in the Gimcrack at York but we will keep going with him in theses sorts of races. This was only the third race of his life and hopefully he can keep on improving.”

Roayh was completing a hat-trick of third-place finishes behind Hannon-trained juveniles, having filled the same berth in the Group Two Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot won by Strong Suit and earlier this month in a Newmarket conditions race when in arrears to Casual Glimpse.

The Godolphin colt, ridden by Frankie Dettori, was a further length and a quarter behind The Paddyman here.


Trainer Saeed bin Suroor reported: “He is a good horse and he always tries his best - he has a nice future. At the moment, six furlongs is best for him, he could go seven furlongs, that would not be a problem, but right now six furlongs on good, fast ground is right for him.


“He is one horse in the stable that I particularly like.”


Fifth race win quotes -
RSA Nursery

HANNON AND HUGHES IN MAJESTIC FORM

The Queen enjoyed her first Glorious Goodwood winner for two years when Richard Hannon and Richard Hughes teamed up yet again for victory, this time with the aptly-named Royal Exchange in the RSA Nursery.


It was the seventh victory at this year’s Glorious Goodwood for the Hannon/Hughes combination and completed an 8/1 double on the day for the pair, following Libranno’s earlier victory.


Hughes was registering his 100th career win at the course.


The Royal Applause juvenile, sent off the 3/1 joint favourite, relished every yard of the seven-furlong trip, picking up inside the distance to wear down runner-up Diamond Geezah and win by half a length.


The Queen’s previous Glorious Goodwood success came with Firestreak in the 2008 running of the E.B.F. Kennels Classified Stakes when Hannon and Hughes were also part of the winning combination.


Hannon said: “You are never confident but this horse travels well - I thought we were definitely going to be nailed in the last furlong but he has picked up and gone again. I think that he will probably be a better horse when he goes another furlong.

“You have to wait for the mile nurseries but I’ll have a word with Her Majesty and John Warren and see how they feel.

“We had a very good Ascot but then Quadrille got beaten. He was in front before the line and in front after the line and the camera followed him afterwards, so we all thought the we had a winner for the Queen at Ascot. But it’s always lovely to have a winner for Her Majesty.

“Sometimes Hughsie can give you a terrible time with the things that he does but he is good, isn’t he? He’s a very good jockey.

“I thought that it was a bit daunting for Libranno out there in front all of the way, especially in the middle of the track and with the crowd. I thought he was very workmanlike and did a very good job.

“We’ll think about the Prix Morny for him and we will see how we go - I’ll have a look and see what sort of entries we have got.”


BLUE SQUARE PAYS OUT

Blue Square paid out on Richard Hughes taking the Racing UK Leading Jockey Award at Glorious Goodwood after the rider’s seventh victory of the week on the Queen’s Royal Exchange in the RSA Nursery.

He is one behind the number of winners achieved at Glorious Goodwood by Johnny Murtagh in 2008, Kieren Fallon in 1998 and Lester Piggott in 1982.


Hughes started the week a well-backed 7/4 second favourite.


Fifth Race placed quotes
RSA Nursery

FROM COCKNEY REBEL TO DIAMOND GEEZAH

Racehorse owner Phil Cunningham will almost certainly never buy another horse as good as dual Guineas winner Cockney Rebel, but he is having fun with some lesser lights.


One of them is Diamond Geezah, who is trained by Barry Hills and runs for a syndicate compiled by Cunningham called Rebel Racing, and who today finished runner-up behind Royal Exchange in the RSA Nursery.

Cunningham said: “He’s a lovely horse who has been on the go since the Brocklesby Stakes [March 27]. The ground is probably a little too fast for him today, but we made the entry and decided to come for a trip to the races - he’s run a cracker.


“I’m not sure where we’ll run next - we’ve been having a deliberation about dropping him back to six furlongs at Doncaster, but Barry’s the boss and we’ll leave it to him.


“We bought two yearlings last year to run for Rebel Racing, and the other is Barney Rebel, who ran a cracker here in a maiden on Tuesday when fifth on his first start. To see them both at Glorious Goodwood and running well has been great.”

Cunningham has 11 horses in training, including some in syndicates. They are trained by Hills, Stan Moore and France-based expatriate Eoghan O’Neill. He also has some yearlings by Cockney Rebel, whose first progeny will appear at the track next year.


The third home in today’s race was Singapore Lilly, who suffered interference on the home turn, but stayed on to take place money under Japanese jockey Hiroki Goto

Trainer Mick Channon said: “She ran alright, but the handicapper has put her up 11lb so we had to run today. We’re running out of options. Hiroki is one of the best jockeys in Japan and he did nothing wrong today - it certainly wasn’t his fault the filly was beaten.”


Sixth Race winner’s quotes
Oak Tree Stakes


WINKWORTH & PEARSON IN GLORIOUS PARADISE

Sussex-based racing fans were rewarded with another local winner when Tropical Paradise, trained at Chiddingfold by Peter Winkworth, landed the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes.


She became a first Glorious Goodwood winner for her trainer, and also for jockey Ian Mongan, although he was later found guilty of careless riding after his filly was adjudged to have interfered with Strictly Dancing, who finished last. Mongan’s ban takes place on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 August.


The 16/1 winner had gained some minor black type when placed in a Listed race on her previous outing, but today’s success embellished her CV in style in a higher-grade event.


Assistant trainer Anton Pearson said: “I didn’t think we’d beat Henry Cecil’s horse [Jacqueline Quest who was unplaced] especially as our filly likes softer ground, but I couldn’t believe her price because she’s very good.


“She has now earned her place in the paddocks [as a broodmare] which pleases me no end.


“We came here yesterday and looked at the ground, and it’s quicker today, so I was worried, but it wasn’t the strongest Group Three in the world. When she was third in the Listed race at Pontefract she hung on the ground, but it was a different story today.


“She’s won here before and Goodwood experience holds them in good stead, and Ian Mongan knows her well - he is the only jockey to have won on her twice and gave her a great ride. We all know how good he is.


“I’ll talk to the owners about plans, but she’s definitely going to improve on softer ground and she’ll get further.”

Oak Tree Stakevs (Group Three)

NO GOLDEN DOUBLE FOR HER MAJESTY

Golden Stream was unable to give the Queen a quick-fire double following Royal Exchange’s victory as the Sir Michael Stoute-trained filly came home three-quarters of a length second to Tropical Paradise in the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes.


The Sadler’s Wells four-year-old, sent off at 9/2, raced towards the rear of the nine-runner field and ran on strongly under Ryan Moore in the closing stages of the seven-furlong contest to overhaul third-placed Pyrrha but could not reach the winner.


John Warren, racing manager to The Queen, said: “She ran a very nice race and ran right up to form with Chris Wall’s filly (Pyrrha). She just found one better on the day.


“She didn’t handle the track very well at all and didn’t quite come down the hill. Ryan said it took her a little while to get herself organised in the straight. There will be more improvement on a flatter track.


“We will not step her back up to a mile. It may have looked like she was staying on but that was more to do with the fact that she got herself organised in the closing stages after not handling the course.

“We have tried her so many times at a mile and she just doesn’t stay, so we will keep her to seven furlongs and find a flatter track.”


Seventh race win quotes -
Turf Club Handicap

BLOOMING PERFECT FOR TEAM RYAN

Perfect Blossom has bloomed from a low-grade maiden into a smart winning machine since joining Kevin Ryan’s yard this season and the filly made it six wins from seven starts for the trainer with a trail-blazing victory in the five-furlong Turf Club Handicap.


Trainer’s daughter Amy Ryan drove the three-year-old to a length and three quarters success over runner-up Confessional. The success was the 5lb claimer’s first at Goodwood.

The delighted apprentice exclaimed: “First ride and first winner - what more could I ask? The big meetings are the important ones and I got a real buzz from that.


“She’s just improving with each run and hopefully there’s still more improvement to come. I rode her at Epsom last time and she just hung a little bit on the camber and pricked her ears in front but today she got her head down and got on with it.”

Perfect Blossom, who only made her seasonal return on June 2, when victorious under Paul Hanagan, carried a 6lb penalty for her most recent success at Epsom and was sent off a 15/2 chance.

Speaking of her front-running triumph, the winning trainer said: “This filly doesn’t have to make the running and it would be nice for her to get a tow from something. She’s a good filly and she’s getting stronger. She has done great this year but actually I’m really looking forward to next year.


“We might go to York next for a five-furlong race there. We’ll stick at the trip for now, it’s not broken so why fix it, we’ll stick with what’s working.


“She has an unbelievable temperament and is taking her racing so well. She stepped into a much tougher race today and has been more impressive than ever.

“It’s great that Amy rode her today and thanks to Bill and Ann Morris (owners) for letting her keep the ride. Also, a big thank you to Paul Hanagan - he set the ball rolling and he will be back on her again.”


TODAY’S GOING AT 10AM

The going remains the same as yesterday

Straight: Good, Good to Firm in places

Round course: Good to Firm

GoingStick readings at 9.30am
Straight course: Stands’ side: 7.9, Centre: 7.9, Far side: 8.1
Round.course: 9.0

Seamus Buckley, Clerk of the Course, said this morning: “We watered the straight after racing yesterday evening, putting on eight millimetres of water.


“We will review the going at the end of the day to see if any more watering is needed, though some rain is forecast within the next 24 hours.


“There is fresh ground for today on the far side from the six-furlong pole to the three-furlong marker after we took down temporary running rail which dolled out the course by six yards.”

Stalls
Straight course: stands’ side.
Round course: inside, except 1m 4f which is outside

The top bend continues to be dolled out three yards and this temporary rail will come down after racing today so as to provide fresh ground for tomorrow’s Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes.



LIBRANNO FACTOR SEES HUGHES ODDS TUMBLE

Richard Hughes is heading relentlessly towards the Racing UK Glorious Goodwood jockeys’ title, and could build on his lead during today’s seven-race card.


Hughes, who has partnered five winners during the first three days, has hardened to 1/6 favourite for the title with bookmaker Blue Square, while Ryan Moore, who has three wins, has been eased to 7/2. Moore has six rides today, one more than the leader, but Hughes has an ace in his hand called Libranno, likely favourite for the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes (4.00).


Libranno, in common with Hughes’ quartet of firsts, is trained in Wiltshire by Richard Hannon, who yesterday trained his 200th winner at Goodwood. Of Libranno, a two-year-old who has won both his races, the trainer said on his website, www.richardhannonracing.tv: “He is workmanlike rather than spectacular, but he kept finding at Newmarket and is the sort of horse who is best when allowed to do his own thing rather than try and organise him. This track [Goodwood] might suit him and Hughesie can let him jump and run.


"We also run Vitznau in the totesport Mile (3.25). He ran a terrific race to finish sixth from a bad draw two years ago, but he is again drawn towards the outside, and, while he ran well at Epsom last time, it will be tough from out there. However, the fact that they have put eight millimetres of water on the straight will help as he would not want it too firm.


"The Queen's Royal Exchange runs in the RSA Nursery (4.35), and, while he won at Salisbury, I think he is better than that so, hopefully, there is a bit more improvement there. Blue Angel, who runs in the Oak Tree Stakes (5.15) and Palisades Park, our runner in the last [Turf Club Handicap, 5.45], will have to be at their best to be competitive as both are in tough races."

Hannon’s five winners means he leads this week’s trainers’ table at Glorious Goodwood by three from Jeremy Noseda.


Royal Exchange is one of two runners for Her Majesty The Queen today, the other being the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Golden Stream, Moore’s mount in the Oak Tree Stakes.


Meanwhile, two horses who ran in the Racing UK Leading Jockey Award Handicap at Glorious Goodwood yesterday are set to make quick reappearances today. Hamoody and Crimea - first and third on their initial outing - are due to tackle the Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint Handicap. Both are trained in Yorkshire by Dandy Nicholls.

NOTE TO TOTESPORT: WATCH OUT FOR RANSOM

Trainer Barry Hills needs a single winner to reach the 50-mark at Glorious Goodwood, and he could reach it in today’s £150,000 totesport Mile, one of the betting highlights of the week.


Hills, who won the race in 1988 with Strike Force, runs Ransom Note, a Royal Ascot winner last month whose selection in today’s Racing Post by ace tipster Pricewise (Tom Segal) has seen his price falling faster than shares in BP. Pricewise has given bookmakers double trouble, for he has also selected the Ralph Beckett-trained Oasis Dancer in the 19-runner handicap.


George Primarolo, spokesman for totesport, said this morning: “Punters have been backing the two Pricewise selections, and in particular Ransom Note. His price has been cut to 9/1 from 14/1. The price of Oasis Dancer has also been under pressure, and we have been forced to go 5/1 from 6/1.


“Sea Lord [who is trained by Mark Johnston] is 5/1 joint-favourite, but he has been heading the list for some time and I wouldn’t be surprised if he eventually starts outright favourite.


“In terms of ante-post interest our worst result would be Webbow, who has been drawn bang against the rail in stall 21, while among bigger-priced horses there has been money for Spectait [from Jonjo O’Neill’s stable], now a 33/1 shot from 50/1. He has to overcome a low draw, but he has run in the race twice, won it in 2006 and was second last year.”

This is the sixth year that totesport has sponsored the Mile, a race which has fallen to Yorkshire-based Johnston on three occasions, including last year when Laa Rayb was successful. Johnston is double-handed today for he also runs Tartan Gunna, while Roger Charlton, who enjoyed back-to-back wins in the race in 2008 and 2009 (with Third Set and Fifteen Love) saddles Proponent.



BETTING NEWS

The Dandy Nicholls-trained hat-trick seeker Victoire De Lyphar has so far proved popular with punters today. Blue Square has cut the three-year-old to 13/2 from 15/2 for the Rolf Group Stewards’ Sprint (2.45pm), the consolation race for tomorrow’s Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup, while totesport has shortened him to 13/2 from 8/1.


In the same six-furlong contest, Nicholls is also set to saddle Hamoody, successful in yesterday’s Racing UK Leading Jockey Award Handicap over a furlong shorter. Totesport has cut the six-year-old to 16/1 from 28/1, while stablemate Crimea, third in that same race yesterday, is now 18/1 from 28/1 and the James Fanshawe-trained Bagamoyo is 9/1 from 10/1. Ladbrokes is offering 9/1 about Bagomoyo from 11/1 and the same firm has snipped Pastoral Player into 12/1 from 14/1.

Duncan, trained by John Gosden, is popular with bettors in the opening Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes (2.10pm). Blue Square makes him 6/5 favourite from 7/4, while Ladbrokes makes him an 11/10 chance from 7/4. Traffic Guard, trained by Paul Cole, is now 22/1 from 40/1 with totesport for the same contest. Those moves have come after the withdrawal of the two Godolphin runners, Cavalryman and La De Two.


In the Group Two Tanqueray Richmond Stakes (4pm), Libranno, from the red hot Richard Hannon stable, is now 5/4 from 11/8 with Ladbrokes.


Blue Square has seen support for the Mark Johnston-trained Tartan Gunna in the totesport Mile (3.25pm) and has shortened the four-year-old, who is running for the second time this week, into 16/1 from 20/1.

In the RSA Nursery (4.35pm), the Cole-trained Memen is 11/4 from 3/1 with Ladbrokes, while the same firm has cut the Andrew Balding-trained Strictly Dancing from 14/1 into 10/1 for the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes (5.15pm).
