ELVIS TAKES FINALE

 

Charismatic sprinter Secret Asset took the concluding Mobile At bet365 Handicap by a length to the delight of trainer Jane Chapple-Hyam.

 

“We call him Elvis at home because he has a suspicious mind,” said Chapple-Hyam. “He’s a real character. When he came to me he had eight stalls tickets and if he’d got one more he would have banned for racing for life here, he’d have had to go to France.

 

“He’ll just keep on running until Christmas on the turf and all-weather and probably come back here on Saturday. I don’t think he’ll get in the Stewards’ Cup as he needs 10 to come out but he’ll go for the consolation race if he’s OK tomorrow. We’ll take him home rather than leave him in the stables here because he prefers to be in his box at home or out in a paddock.”

GROUND UPDATE

 

The official going description remains Good following the first day of Glorious Goodwood.

 

“I’m delighted with how the first day has gone. The ground has stood up very well to nearly 100 runners today,” said Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course.

 

“There was a lot of praise from the trainers and jockeys who said it was perfect ground, riding just on the slower side of good.

 

“We are leaving the going description of Good as it is and it will be the same tomorrow morning.

 

“We won’t be moving the running rail until after racing tomorrow, when we will produce fresh ground up the straight for Thursday’s racing.”

 

DELEGATOR

 

Frankie Dettori reported that Delegator, who finished last in the bet365 Lennox Stakes, was unsuited by the good ground. The veterinary officer subsequently reported that during routine testing he found the horse had been struck into on his left hind.

Poker At bet365 Handicap

 

WALKER LANDS FIRST GOODWOOD WINNER

 

New trainer Ed Walker, a former disciple of Luca Cumani, saddled his first Goodwood winner when Red Gulch won this competitive handicap.

 

Ridden by Jean-Pierre Guillambert, Red Gulch scored by a length and three quabrters from Guest Book. Walker would be no stranger to the big occasion given his time with Cumani, but of his success at this key meeting he said: “It’s amazing - I can’t really explain it!”

 

Of Red Gulch he said: “He’s been running so well, and creeping up the handicap, and he’s only had one bad race in the Bunbury Cup [at Newmarket]. I made a hash there by insisting that J-P went across to the far side, but in addition the horse came back with a dirty scope. We cleared that up, he’s been in cracking form at home and we thought he should take his chance.

 

“I was worried his handicap mark had gone too high - he won a race for Ed Dunlop before we bought him at the sales and went up 8lb, and in the Bunbury Cup he was 15lb higher than for his previous win and I thought that was it, but today he was at the top of his game.

 

“I was pretty confident he would stay a mile. He’s had five tough races this season, so we’ll wait and see what the handicapper does, and he clearly likes a bit of cut in the ground so the weather will be a factor too.”

 

Walker, who confirmed he plans to run strongly-fancied Riggins in the totesport Mile on Friday, said: “Riggins is always exciting/heart-stopping, but he seems in good form and we’re looking forward to him running.”

 

Mark Johnston, trainer of the runner-up, said: “Everything was pretty straight-foward for him in the race, and he’s likely to run again this week. Most probably in the mile-and-one apprentices’ handicap on Saturday.”

FIFTH RACE WINNING QUOTES

CASINO AT bet365 EBF ‘ASSERTIVE’ MAIDEN

 

TOOTH’S MOUSTACHE BY A NOSE

 

Moustache carried owner Raymond Tooth’s colours to a nose success in the Casino At bet365 EBF ‘Assertive’ Maiden and his trainer Richard Hannon predicts a big future for the Mujadil colt.

 

“He’s a pretty good horse,” said Hannon. “He’s a baby and he’s growing up and won’t have too much more racing this year.

 

He had  an infection when he ran at Chepstow. We thought that he was a certainty there and Jimmy Fortune rode him - he said that he wobbled a bit and went inside. We got him back, scoped him and he had a little bit of blood. We gave him a course of antibiotics to put him right. 

 

“He’s a pretty good horse but he is a baby and he is still growing up. I hope that he is going to be a very good horse one day and he won’t have too much more this year.

 

“He worked well with Chandlery (who runs in tomorrow’s Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes) the other morning and Chandlery worked slightly the better. Moustache had a very good blow that morning because we had laid him off for quite a long time but then we gave him a nice strong canter the following morning and he cleared, so we thought that we would come here.

 

“We’ve got four in the race tomorrow and they are all owned by different people so we’re letting them take their chances.”

 

The victory completed a 23.5/1 double for Hannon and Richard Hughes after Strong Suit’s earlier success.

 

Fifth race

Casino At bet365 “Assertive” Maiden

 

LLANARMON A HAIRS-BREADTH BEHIND MOUSTACHE

 

Twice-raced Moustache won this maiden race, but only by a nose from debutant Llanarmon Lad from Barry Hills’ Lambourn stable.

 

Llanarmon Lad, the mount of Darryll Holland, was sired by Red Clubs, another horse whose racing career was guided by Hills. Red Clubs, whose first crop are now two-year-olds, suffered an injury in the covering sheds while at stud in Ireland, and was put down earlier this year.

 

Asked if this colt resembled his sire, Hills said: “Actually this one is a bit bigger. It’s sad the sire died, but I saw this colt at stud [at his breeder’s] and liked him and bought him.”

 

Llanarmon Lad was last of the 13 runners after a furlong, but came wide of the field to get into contention. Hills said: “He was drawn two on the outside, and I wanted him to have the chance to come over [to the rails]. I like them ridden like that on this course and don’t want them up in the firing line all the way. He’s run very well.”

Fourth race

bet365 Molecomb Stakes

 

REQUINTO HAS REQUISITE SPEED IN BET365 MOLECOMB

 

Ireland chalked up a Glorious Goodwood winner when Requinto scored for trainer David Wachman in the bet365 Molecomb Stakes.

 

Ridden by Wayne Lordan, who wore the colours of Michael Tabor, Sue Magnier and Derrick Smith, Requinto emerged from stall 14 next to the rails, but was switched to the middle of the track for a final-furlong flourish that carried him clear of runner-up Burwaaz and third-placed Charles The Great. It was a first winner at Goodwood for both trainer and jockey.

 

Lordan said: “This fellow has shown lots of pace in Ireland but he was going half flat out here today because they went very quick.

 

"I was just trying to hang on a small bit for the end. There were a few horses in front of me, so I pulled him out to give him a bit of daylight. After all they’re all only two-year-olds and it was only his fifth start. He went a length clear and did it well.

 

“Five furlongs suit him best - at home we’ve often thought six would be fine, but five is best. He’s very straightforward, a lovely horse and a child could ride him. He just does everything at his own pace.

 

“He is an improving horse. He has a good mind as well, so everything is grand.

 

“This is my first Glorious Goodwood winner and I had my first winner at Royal Ascot last month, so I am delighted.

 

“We feel as though we’re on top with our two-year-olds [at Wachman’s stables] so we’re hoping for a good season.”

 

Kevin Buckley, who represents Coolmore Stud in Britain and therefore acts for the winning trio of owners, said: “David is at Galway today saddling runners. They went incredibly quick and he was tapped for a stride, but he’s inherited a lot of speed from his dam, Damson [winner of the Queen Mary and Phoenix Stakes], who was very fast. He’s picked up a lot of attributes from her, and the sire [Dansili].

 

“He would be better suited by faster ground, but he’s very good at this trip. David will make the decisions once the horse gets home, but could he be a candidate for the Flying Childers, possibly?”

 

 

FOURTH RACE PLACE QUOTES

bet365 MOLECOMB STAKES (GROUP 3)

 

BURWAAZ BEATEN BY BETTER HORSE

 

Trainer Ed Dunlop believes Burwaaz ran into a high-class performer when losing out by a length and a quarter to Requinto in the bet365 Molecomb Stakes.

 

“We were slammed by a very good horse (Harbour Watch) at Newmarket last time and I believe we’ll see him in the Richmond Stakes and we were beaten by another very good one here. But our’s ran a very good race,” said Dunlop.

 

Andrew Balding is likely to step third-placed Charles The Great up in trip. “The draw meant he probably ended up racing on the slower part of the track but that’s the way it goes,” said Balding. “I’m keen to try him over six furlongs and he’s in the Middle Park and Mill Reef. I will discuss with the owners about where we go next.”

THIRD RACE WINNING QUOTES

bet365 LENNOX STAKES (GROUP 2)

 

STRONG SUIT ON TOP

 

After a narrow defeat in a Group One race in France on his previous outing, the Richard Hannon-trained Strong Suit returned to the number one spot when justifying 5/2 favouritism to land the feature Group Two bet365 Lennox Stakes on day one of Glorious Goodwood.

 

The three-year-old had been revitalised by a wind operation prior to his victory in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and trainer Richard Hannon is hoping for Group One glory before the year end.

 

“His throat was gradually narrowing but the operation put that right and he was back to his old self,” said Hannon. “We worked him one day at Kempton with Canford Cliffs and he went so well that I said to (owner) Julie (Wood) that we’d take our chance at Ascot and both horses won there.

 

“We were only beaten a head and a nose last time in France in a Group One and it would be nice to win one. The Prix La Foret might be the right race for him.

 

Looking ahead to Canford Cliffs’ run tomorrow in the ‘Duel On The Downs’, Hannon added: “We’re giving a lot of weight away but we’ll give it a shot and it’s just unfortunate that one of them will get beat.”

 

Jockey Richard Hughes added: “It’s nice to get off the mark and when this horse is good he’s very good. Something upset him in France last time, I don’t know if he didn’t travel over well or he got stung or something.

 

“He gave me an awful ride to the start that day, he was jig jogging and it’s not in his nature to do that. I was never happy with him in the race but he was only beaten a couple of heads.

 

“Today he was just beautiful going to the start - a different horse. When he is good, he is good and he never does anything when he hits the front so there is no point going on - he would only throw it away and lose it. We were just worried that, having had his wind operation, the ground might have too much cut in it but he was fine.

 

“I was just practising for Canford Cliffs, hopefully!”

Owner Julie Wood added: “As he was turning into the straight he looked in control but you never know. Richard made his own move and didn’t wait for anyone else and he was cruising in the end.

 

“He’s come back to be the horse we always thought he was after the wind operation. We’ve been through a lot with him and are very fond of him.”

 

Third race

bet365 Lennox Stakes

 

HILLS TAKES HUGHES TO TASK AFTER SUIT BEATS JAZZ

 

Red Jazz made much of the running until nabbed by Strong Suit in the bet365 Lennox Stakes, the feature race on day one of Glorious Goodwood.

 

Trainer Barry Hills said of Red Jazz, who is owned by Ronnie Arculli: “He may go to Hong Kong later on, but for now he’ll keep going in races of this type.”

 

Hills was critical of Richard Hughes, who rode the winner, and said: “The winner chopped across him, and he [Hughes] keeps doing it. The winner won on merit, but it’s wrong. It was the sort of move that could have cost us second.”

 

Asked if he was referring to the finish of races in general, or of Hughes in particular, Hills said: “You look at the form, and you’ll soon see.”

 

Third-placed Beacon Lodge put up another pleasing performance for trainer Clive Cox who said: “He’s flown home. He appreciated the extra millimetre of rain this morning, but once more he’s shown he can compete in these top races.

 

“Looking ahead he does like the ground easier than good and he’s in any seven-furlongs and mile races of this type. He likes France because they do water a bit more over there and he’s a Group 3 winner at Chantilly. We don’t mind travelling if we have to.”

Second race win quotes

bet365 Gordon Stakes

 

50 UP FOR JOHNSTON THANKS TO FABULOUS NAMIBIAN

 

            7/1 chance Namibian added to his Royal Ascot victory when landing the bet365 Gordon Stakes and becoming trainer Mark Johnston’s 50th Glorious Goodwood winner.

            Ridden by in-form Silvestre De Sousa, Namibian dropped back to 12 furlongs for today’s race, having won the Queen’s Vase over two miles at the Royal meeting. This was the three-year-old’s seventh race of the season.

            Johnston said: “Silvestre said they went quick so he sat in behind, although I did think the pace was too slow for him early in the race. I knew he would stay at the finish and he’s outstayed his rival [favourite Fiorente]. He started in a fairly low grade and made rapid progress since that Musselburgh handicap [in June before Royal Ascot], but he just wasn’t ready earlier in the season.

            “It was a last-minute decision to run today, because we had Dordogne in the race and he was a proven mile-and-a-half horse and a course winner at Goodwood, so he was my preferred choice, but I feared that the ground might be easy - and it’s not, it’s probably perfect - and with the rain this morning that made up my mind.

            “It’s great to get a winner on the board so early in the meeting - it enables you to relax for the week.”

            Namibian is quoted at 8/1 (with Fiorente) for the Ladbrokes St Leger with Victor Chandler, and Johnston said: “I’ll have to talk to the owner, but today has shown that a mile and three quarters should be no problem at Doncaster.”

            Of De Sousa he said: “I think confidence in a jockey is a huge factor, and he has it in abundance. He’s not worried when Ryan Moore is alongside him and nor do I.”

            De Sousa said: “He travelled well and I was happy in the position I found myself. He’s a genuine horse and tough, and if you’re on the best horse you’ll win the race. Ryan is a very strong jockey in a finish, but my horse was running for me.

            “I never thought I’d be in the first three in the jockeys’ championship, and now I’ve been there for three weeks, but I’m not thinking about the title. If I’m there in the final week I’ll go for it, but I just want to ride winners.

            “Namibian is a lovely horse and he tries hard. I was a little bit concerned with the trip - the step back from two miles to a mile and a half - but he got it well. I am pleased with the way he did it.

            “I would say that the St Leger distance would suit him and he loved today’s ground.”

bet365 GORDON STAKES (GROUP 3)

 

FIORENTE STILL POSSIBLE FOR DONCASTER

 

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Fiorente lost out by a neck to Namibian when sent off 11/10 favourite for the Group 3 bet365 Gordon Stakes but the runner-up could still takes his chance in the Ladbrokes St Leger in September.

 

“Our fellow is a progressive horse but we were beaten fair and square,” said Stoute. “He doesn’t have a lot of mileage on the clock. He is in the Leger but it’s not a good time to make a decision on that now.”

 

Peter Reynolds, manager to owners Ballymacoll Stud, added: “That was the first time he’s ever had to battle in a race and it will have taught him a lot. We might end up going for the Great Voltigeur at York and that would give us a better idea about the St Leger. He’s by Monsun out of a Pilsudski mare so he’d no problem staying the trip if he went to Doncaster.”

 

Saeed bin Suroor, trainer of third-placed Hunter’s Light, commented: “He ran really well and liked the ground. We will keep our options open with him but he might be better going back to a mile and a quarter.”

bet365.com HANDICAP

 

ARLEQUIN SCORES AT 20/1

 

There was a 20/1 shock in the opening bet365.com Handicap when Arlequin made the long journey from James Bethell’s North Yorkshire stable worthwhile when scoring by a neck under Graham Gibbons.

 

“It’s a brilliant start to the week - it’s the only runner I have! It’s worth the trip down for that sort of money,” said Bethell.

 

“He is quite a good horse but he has been a bit unlucky - I was aiming him at the John Smith’s Cup but he didn’t get in because he was a pound or two too low. It must have been bad planning!

 

“I didn’t think he’d get through on the rail so I was a bit worried for a while. My daughter rides him at home so she keeps him under control.

 

“We have been to France with him and he could prossibly go to York now for a mile and quarter handicap at York on August 17 next although he is also in a Group 3 at Baden Baden at the end of next month. I hope he is still improving.”

 

Gibbons added: “It’s nice to get a big one on a big day like today. They didn’t really go that hard up the hill and Silvestre (de Sousa on Jutland) kicked oncoming down the hill, which strung us out a bit. But this fellow has got a bit of pace and I was just sitting where I wanted to be.

“Once he got that gap, it helped him - once he got a little bit of daylight he picked up real good. He didn’t actually have to fight for that long because he didn’t see Modun until the last 100 yards.

 

“I got a great run up the inside but I had nowhere else to go than up the rail. I took a chance but it paid off. I was always travelling comfortably and could go whenever I wanted.

 

“There’s a bit of juice in the ground which helped him and I think the ground is just on the slow side of good. There’s a nice covering of grass.”

EBOR UNLIKELY FOR MODUN, SAYS SIR MICHAEL

 

A final-furlong flourish was not quite enough for Modun, who finished runner-up in the opener at the 2011 Glorious Goodwood festival.

 

Victory in the mile-and-a-quarter bet365.com Handicap went to Arlequin, who beat the Ryan Moore-ridden Modun by a neck, with Our Joe Mac one and a quarter lengths back in third.

 

Modun is entered in the Betfred Ebor Handicap at York on August 20, but trainer Sir Michael Stoute said: “I wouldn’t think he’ll run - I don’t think that’s his distance.”

 

Peter Reynolds, manager of Ireland’s Ballymacoll Stud, the owners of Modun, said: “We have taken our time with him - he’s a big horse and did very little wrong there. Hopefully he’s got a big future.”

 

Our Joe Mac, who was ridden by Paul Hanagan, is entered in Friday’s totesport Mile at Glorious Goodwood, but trainer Richard Fahey said: “He’ll run if he gets in, but I doubt he’ll get a run.”

 

Our Joe Mac is number 31 in a list of 48, and needs 11 rivals ahead of him to drop out.

Graham Gibbons, rider of the neck winner Arlequin, said: “It is just on the slow side.”

RICHARD HUGHES ON CANFORD CLIFFS

 

Richard Hughes who is due to ride Canford Cliffs in the much anticipated “Duel on the Downs” clash with Frankel in tomorrow’s QIPCO Sussex Stakes was interviewed before racing on Racing UK and commented on his ride.

 

“He seems great at home, he’s flying,” said Hughes. “He’s older and bit easier to ride than Frankel and he has done better times than Frankel all his life.

 

“I think Canford was a better three-year-old than Frankel. Frankel is a super horse but I don’t think his form is really strong.

 

“Zoffany got close to him at Ascot but Zoffany wouldn’t be in the same league as Canford Cliffs. When it comes to tactics, I have to use what works best for Canford. Usually whatever he follows he can get by them but, if it is a very messy race, I might have to change tactics.

 

“I have never known him come off the bit, except in the Morny when he was wrong.”

 

 

QUEALLY REALLY HAPPY WITH FRANKEL

 

Enviable jockey Tom Queally, who rides Frankel in tomorrow's ‘Duel on the Downs', aka the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, is keeping his big-race plans under wraps.

 

Writing his blog on Racing UK's website, Queally says: "A lot has been written and said about tactics, but we have options with Frankel, and in the end I'm sure it will be a case of the best horse winning.

 

"When you start out riding, you dream of riding in Group 1 races, let alone winning them, and I have been lucky enough to win 14 so far.

 

"Obviously, I'm sincerely hoping Frankel can be number 15. There will be a huge crowd and it should be a great spectacle, despite there only being four runners, with the big two horses frightening off the others, but it makes no difference to me. It wouldn't bother me if there were 14 or just two, we know what we have to do.

 

"Frankel has shown he's the best three-year-old around and now he has to prove it against older horses, namely Canford Cliffs. He hasn’t met a horse of that calibre before so this will tell us where he ranks among all the milers around today."

 

Queally also mentions his other mounts on tomorrow's Glorious Goodwood card, saying: "I kick off the day with a ride for Ollie Pears on My Arch in the opening Goodwood Handicap. Ollie is doing really well with his horses at present, banging in the winners left, right and centre, and it's nice to see him have a runner at Glorious Goodwood.

 

"I rode the horse to win on his penultimate start at Pontefract. The course will suit him and he will love the trip and I can see him running a massive race.

 

"I have always said that Capital Attraction has ability and he showed that at Ascot on his penultimate start when tenth in the Royal Hunt Cup, under first-time blinkers. He has since disappointed but a repeat of that Ascot run would give him a chance of making the frame in the seven-furlong classified stakes [Harwoods EBF "Hellvelyn" Classified Stakes].

 

"Finally I ride Askaud for Dandy Nicholls in the fillies and mares' handicap [EBF Nayef Fillies' And Mares' Handicap]. I have ridden her once before over course and distance, when we didn't see the best of her, but Dandy loves Goodwood and wouldn't be sending her all the way down here if he didn't think she would run well."

 

RICHARD HANNON ON CANFORD CLIFFS IN TOMORROW’S QIPCO SUSSEX STAKES - “IT DOESN'T COME ANY BETTER THAN THIS, DOES IT ?”

 

Champion trainer Richard Hannon is relishing tomorrow’s clash in the £300,000 QIPCO Sussex Stakes between Canford Cliffs and Frankel.

 

Hannon sent out Canford Cliffs to win the mile Group One contest a year ago and is happy to take on the unbeaten Frankel tomorrow.

                                                                                                                       

Hannon told his website, www.richardhannonracing.tv: “Canford Cliffs has completed his preparation, and everything has gone smoothly. We have done all the talking and now Henry (Cecil, trainer of Frankel) and I will leave it to the two horses.

 

“Obviously, tactics will play an important part, but I'll leave that to Hughesie. I stopped giving him riding instructions after I got it badly wrong with Zebedee at Royal Ascot last year, and he knows Canford Cliffs better than anyone.

 

 “We have a lot of respect for Frankel, but we know the strengths of our horse and, hopefully, we will be the ones celebrating afterwards. We took the scalp of Goldikova and now we are after Frankel - it doesn't come any better than this, does it ?”

                                                                                               

 

TRAINERS’ FATE IN ‘DIDI’S’ HANDS AT BLUE SQUARE STEWARDS’ CUP DRAW

 

 Ace soccer player-turned-manager Dietmar ‘Didi’ Hamann will be at Glorious Goodwood on Thursday to play a key role in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup draw.

 The £100,000 sprint handicap is run on Saturday afternoon, but the allocation of stalls positions takes place 48 hours earlier, when Hamann will pluck runners’ names from a hat, and their trainers will have but a few seconds to decide which gate they want for their horse. Television presenter Nick Luck will orchestrate the occasion.

 Blue Square representative Alan Alger says Hamann jumped at the chance to get involved on two counts. “Didi’s a big fan of racing, but in addition he recently became manager of Stockport County, who will play in the Blue Square Premier League next season.

 “Twelve months ago Steve Evans of Crawley Town performed the draw, and his team went on to win the Blue Square Premier League. Didi is hoping lightning can strike twice.”

 Alger’s employers sponsor three football leagues - the Blue Square Premier, and also the Blue Square North and South divisions - and the 68 clubs involved stand to win cash from Saturday’s big race. Alger explained: “We allocate each of the top 68 horses in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup to one of the clubs, and the team that gets the winning horse receives £2,000 plus a £100 free bet at Blue Square’s SP. Last year Droylsden won thanks to Evens And Odds who scored at 20/1, which meant the club gained £4,000, a useful sum at the start of the season.”

 Hamann, a German international whose finest hours came when wearing a Liverpool shirt - the club won numerous trophies including the 2005 European Champions League with Hamann in the side - was coaching at Milton Keynes Dons and alongside Sven-Goran Eriksson at Leicester, but the Stockport County position is his first as a manager. Punters have latched on, and the club’s odds for the title have been cut from 25/1 to 16/1 since his appointment. Luton Town and Fleetwood are 7/2 joint-favourites.

 Looking ahead to Saturday, Alger says: “Mac’s Power, who is now 7/1 from 8/1, and Edinburgh Knight, 12/1 from 14/1, have been movers today.

 “We are really looking forward to a cracking day on Saturday, when we sponsor not only the Stewards’ Cup but also the bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Stakes, the consolation race.”

 

FRANKIE’S CHOPPER PROBLEM RULES HIM OUT OF FIRST RIDE

 

Frankie Dettori will miss his first ride at Glorious Goodwood today following technical problems with the helicopter due to fly him to Sussex.

 

Dettori, who is making his way to Goodwood in order to ride Delegator in the bet365 Lennox Stakes (3.10), will be replaced by Ted Durcan on Hunter’s Light, his planned ride in the bet365 Gordon Stakes (2.35).

 

The Italian former champion jockey is returning to racing following his horror fall from ill-fated Rewilding in Saturday’s King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

 

 

 

 

GOING

 

The official going ahead of the 2011 Glorious Goodwood meeting is

 

GOOD

 

A GoingStick reading of 8.4 was taken at 10.30am.

 

Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course, said: “We had just over one millimetre of rain between 8.30am and 10am this morning but it has made no difference to the ground. We are forecast to be pretty much dry all the way through the week now. The track is in great order and I am delighted with its condition.”

 

The running rail from the six-furlong marker on the lower bend to the winning post has been dolled out approximately five yards, increasing distances by 12 yards. The top bend has been dolled out three yards increasing race distances on that course by five yards.

 

The stalls on the Straight Course will be on the stands’ side and on the Round Course on the inside except 1m 4f races, which will be on the outside.

 

OVERTURN GOES ON A CUP RUN

 

THURSDAY AT GLORIOUS GOODWOOD ATTRACTS FANTASTIC FIELDS

 

A little over an hour and half after Illustrious Blue landed the 2010 Artemis Goodwood Cup (3.15pm), Overturn was in the west of Ireland storming to a rousing victory in the Galway Hurdle.

 

This year, the front-running seven-year-old will take his place at Glorious Goodwood for Thursday’s £100,000 contest over two miles, for which a record field of 16 runners is due to face the starter. There were 15 runners in 2007, 2006 and 1994.

 

Overturn is a high-class hurdler, having landed the Grade Two Scottish Champion Hurdle in 2010, but has also proven himself to be one of the country’s top staying handicappers on the Flat over the past two seasons.

 

The seven-year-old’s all-the-way victory in the historic Chester Cup over an extended two and a quarter miles in May followed last season’s Northumberland Plate triumph over two miles at Newcastle. Having annexed two of Britain’s most competitive handicaps, trainer Donald McCain is happy to let his charge step up to Flat race Pattern company.

 

Overturn was foiled in his attempt to win back-to-back Northumberland Plates on June 25 when, racing on good to soft going, he was sixth of 19 to Tominator.

 

McCain revealed today: “Overturn is in good nick, we just feel that a combination of weight and the ground collared him up the straight at Newcastle last time.

 

“We have always had it in the back of our minds that we would like to take him to the Artemis Goodwood Cup and see how he gets on, so that is what we are doing.

 

“His Chester win was a good run and I have always felt that Goodwood might suit him. We have put up a good jockey (Richard Hughes). Overturn seems in very good form and the quick ground will be in his favour, so fingers crossed.”

 

A high-class field is headed by Godolphin’s Opinion Poll, runner-up in the Group One Gold Cup over two and a half miles at Royal Ascot in June for trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni. Fellow Godolphin handler Saeed bin Suroor runs John Smith’s Cup third Lost In The Moment.

 

Trainer Mark Johnston has an excellent record in the Artemis Goodwood Cup, having landed the prize with the great Double Trigger (1995, 1997, 1998), Royal Rebel (2000), and Darasim (2004). He is set to saddle Fox Hunt, winner of the Duke Of Edinburgh Handicap at Royal Ascot.

 

The Clive Cox-trained Electrolyser was runner-up to Illustrious Blue in last year’s Artemis Goodwood Cup, while the Jamie Osborne-trained 10-year-old Geordieland was runner-up to the great Yeats in the 2006 renewal and fifth to Allegretto in 2007.

 

Another contender with classy hurdle form to his name is Blue Bajan who has been in good heart for trainer David O’Meara this term. The nine-year-old saw off the Mick Channon-trained Montaff to land the Group Two Henry II Stakes over two miles at Sandown in May.

 

Group Three Jockey Club Cup victor Tastahil, trained by Barry Hills, was runner-up to Overturn in the Chester Cup before being pulled up in the Ascot Gold Cup, while the John Dunlop-trained Swingkeel was successful at Royal Ascot in the Queen Alexandra Stakes over an extended two miles and five furlongs.

 

Also among the field are the Michael Bell-trained Group Two winner Allied Powers, who is stepping up to two miles for the first time, as well as Bergo, Red Cadeaux and recent Listed Esher Stakes first and second, Chiberta King and Aaim To Prosper.

 

The tremendous card on Thursday, July 28, also features the £80,000 Group Two Audi King George Stakes (2.45pm) over five furlongs.

 

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Kingsgate Native landed the sprint in 2009 and is one of 12 speedsters declared for the thrilling contest.

 

Masamah from the Dandy Nicholls stable defeated the Henry Candy-trained Amour Propre to land the Listed City Wall Stakes over the distance at York on July 9, while the Ed McMahon-trained Noble Storm, successful over the course and distance at Glorious Goodwood in 2009, easily won the Listed Achilles Stakes at Haydock in May.

 

Others of note include the David Barron-trained Group Therapy, runner-up to Borderlescott in last year’s Audi King George Stakes, and Humidor from the George Baker stable.

 

The other Pattern race on the fantastic seven-race card is the £50,000 Group Three i-Shares Fillies’ Stakes (3.45pm) over a mile and three quarters in which the exciting Sir Henry Cecil-trained Wild Coco heads 10 runners. The three-year-old filly stepped up from a maiden win to defeat Meeznah in a Newmarket Listed contest on July 16.

 

French trainer Mikel Delzangles is set to run the lightly-raced three-year-old Shankardeh, beaten a neck when third in the Group Two Prix de Mallaret at Saint-Cloud in June.

 

Thursday’s racing kicks off at 2.15pm with the £45,000 Betfred The Bonus King Handicap over just short of 10 furlongs, which has 16 runners.

 

Also on the card are the £17,500 EBF Medicean New Ham Fillies’ Maiden (4.20pm, 19 runners) over seven furlongs, the £20,000 Tatler Handicap (4.55pm,15  runners) over the same distance and the concluding £15,000 Betfred.com Handicap (5.25pm, 15 runners) over two miles, three furlongs.

 

Glorious Goodwood runs over five days, from Tuesday, July 26 to Saturday, July 30 inclusive.
