KINYRAS CONTINUES FAMILY TRADITION

 

Trainer Sir Michael Stoute and jockey Ryan Moore completed a 24/1 first and last race double when Kinyras held on by a nose in the concluding betfred.com Handicap.

 

The victory was particularly satisfying for veteran owner breeder Athos Christodoulou.

 

“I didn’t know if he had held on in the photo but I’m delighted,” said Christodoulou, who has campaigned such stars as Ile De Chypre and Posidonas.

 

“He’s the fourth generation of the family I have had and it goes back to Salamina, who was born in 1978, so it’s great for him to win today.”

 

Seventh race quotes

betfred.com Handicap

ALDWICK HELD AT BAY

BY A NOSE

It may not have been the highest-profile race of the week at Glorious Goodwood, but the betfred.com Handicap, which closed day three, produced a stunning finish  involving jockeys Ryan Moore and Dane O’Neill.

 

Moore’s mount Kinyras, trained by Sir Michael Stoute, prevailed by a nose from Aldwick Bay, although the actual distance was probably thinner than gossamer.

 

“It looks like a dead-heat to me,” said Aldwick Bay’s trainer, Richard Hannon, who also ran the unplaced favourite, Reflect, the mount of Richard Hughes.

 

Hannon added of Aldwick Bay: “Whatever the result he’s run a super race. He came from a long way back and did it well, but just couldn’t do more. He likes Goodwood - we’re delighted, although we’d rather be in the winner’s spot.”

 

Eve Johnson-Houghton saddled third-placed Amistress, and she said: “She’s called Amistress, but she’s not a madam. She’s so tough and look at the size of her - she’s a rabbit, but she gives her all every time.

 

“And she’s still improving. We may go to Brighton for a mile and a half race there next week because they are bound to put her up the handicap so we might as well run again.”

Sixth Race Win Quotes -

Tatler Handicap

 

HUGHES GIVES RIVALS A CASUAL GLIMPSE

 

Casual Glimpse may have found Pattern races beyond him but the drop back to handicap grade proved the right move as the Richard Hannon-trained three-year-old swept to victory in the Tatler Handicap.

 

Runner-up to Bridgefield in a mile conditions race at Newmarket on July 7, having contested Group races previously, Casual Glimpse relished the seven-furlong trip here and cruised to the two-furlong pole on the bridle under a confident Richard Hughes. Switched off the rail to challenge with over a furlong remaining, the Compton Place colt quickened past rivals to land the spoils by a neck from Dimension.

 

It was a first success for Casual Glimpse’s new Qatari owner Mohammed Al-Attiyah, who purchased the colt for 83,000 guineas at the recent Tattersalls July Sale.

 

Richard Hannon jr, assistant trainer to his father, said: “I’m not sure he’s improved, he’s coming down to a handicap and this is more his grade. He’s come down gradually in the weights all year.

 

“He was sold at Tattersalls three weeks ago and we sold him very well. He has come back and won a nice handicap for his new connections so we’re very pleased. He is a new owner and we have only met him once. He bought him at the sales and said would you like to train him and we said of course we would.

 

“He’s always been a nice horse but probably not quite as good as we hoped. He is back to good form now and this is more his level. He’s a very good handicapper.”

 

Asked about the well-timed ride Hughes appeared to give his mount, Hannon continued: “I think it was more luck than judgement! He never really looked like getting beaten in the race but if he had got beaten he would have been an unlucky loser. The gaps came - Hughesie gave him a great ride, he rides this course great. He was hemmed in at probably the best point but came home well.

 

Hughes extended his lead at the top of the RUK Leading Jockey competition with four wins, one more than Frankie Dettori.

 

Hughes said: “It was a tough decision to ride him. King Of Jazz, I wasn’t sure about the undulations with him so I knocked him on the head and then Sinfonico was a tough one but I thought the ground was too quick for him. With the 48-hour declarations it’s hard, you don’t really know what the ground is going to be like. The last three bits of work, this horse has worked really well.

 

“To try and force it and go faster than they’re able you won’t win anything around here. You have to let the horse find a rhythm. I know where the winning post is, that’s the main thing.”

 

James Fanshawe, trainer of runner-up Dimension, said: “He’s come up against two good horses on his last two starts but he ran very well, he’s improving. His mother was a sprinter and we might just come back in trip with him, he’s developing physically all the time into a stronger horse as well.”

BUCKLEY PLANS WATERING TO PREVENT QUICKENING GROUND

           

Goodwood clerk of the course Seamus Buckley will be watering the racecourse tonight to ensure it does not dry further.

 

After a day of almost relentless, and extremely pleasant, sunshine that saw Ladies’ Day visitors enjoying a perfect day at the races, Buckley said: “It’s been another very successful day and we’ve had lots of compliments from owners, trainers and jockeys.

 

“The ground has certainly quickened up and I did change it after the first race from ‘good’ to ‘good to firm, good in places’. I walked the course just before the penultimate race and due to the drying conditions have decided to put some four to five millimetres of water on the straight just to keep the sting out of the ground.

 

“The rail on the bottom bend will be taken down and moved over and there will be fresh ground available tomorrow.”

 

Of the weather forecast, Buckley said: “There’s a 30 per cent chance of a shower tomorrow afternoon, but in view of that forecast we have to water to avoid the risk of getting close to firm ground.

 

“There’s still moisture in the ground, but we want to maintain it as it is.”

EBF Medicean New Ham Maiden Fillies’ Stakes

 

GIRL LOOKS GIFTED AFTER EASY MAIDEN VICTORY

 

Oxfordshire trainer Paul Cole ran two fillies in this contest for two-year-old maidens, and saw them finish first and fourth, with Gifted Girl taking the number one spot, and Swingland just out of the places.

 

A well-bred daughter of stallion Azamour out of a half-sister to Irish Oaks victress Margarula, Gifted Girl cost owner Alan Spence 68,000gns at the sales - and that is looking money well spent after she ran out a four-length winner under jockey Neil Callan.

 

Gifted Girl was third at Newbury on her first start, and Cole said: “On that occasion the race wasn’t run to suit - he [Callan] didn’t make any mistakes today and let her use her stride. It’s a bit quick to make decisions, but the Fillies’ Mile [run this year at Newmarket] is the logical race for her. She’s big and has a long stride, so we don’t want to overdo her at two, but that would be the obvious target.

 

“At the sales [when a yearling] she looked a bit angular, but she’s grown into her shape and is now a very attractive filly. She should go on because she’s bred to be a three-year-old.

 

“Swingland had a good draw, but was shuffled to the outside. She’s a nice filly from a good family.”

 

Owners come and go in racing, and Cole was relaxed when asked about the recent decision of Jim and Fitri Hay to remove their horses from his stables. He said: “The face of racing changes all the time. You just have to get your head down and get on with things.

 

“Everybody at the yard makes up a good team and we have a good set-up. We’re looking forward to next year.”

EBF Medicean New Ham Maiden Fillies’ Stakes

 

SILK IS ON THE RIGHT ROAD

 

Amber Silk is one for the notebook after the Barry Hills-trained debutant picked up nicely in the final furlong to clinch the runner-up spot in the EBF Medicean New Ham Maiden Fillies’ Stakes over seven furlongs.

 

The Lawman filly, sent off a 20/1 shot, settled towards the rear before creeping up the rail and quickened well once switched out approaching the final furlong to challenge under Michael Hills. Amber Silk finished four lengths behind the runaway winner, Gifted Girl.          

 

Charlie Hills, assistant trainer to his father, said: “We just wanted her to find her feet and ride her to come home and she came home nicely. Hopefully she didn’t have too hard a race. We will probably give her a bit of time now and just let her strengthen up, she should get a mile in future.

 

“She’s closely related to High Heeled and she looks very similar to her actually, so she hopefully she will get further.  She has a good temperament and certainly I would have thought we will step her over a mile next year.”

 

Michael Hills was slapped with a one-day ban after the stewards decided he was in breach of Rule (B)54.1 and guilty of careless riding in that he manoeuvred left handed and interfered with the unplaced Spirit Na Heireann. He is suspended on Thursday, August 11.

 

Clive Cox was thrilled with third-placed Perfect Delight who was pipped for second close home having tracked across from an unfavourable high draw to race in second behind Gifted Girl.

 

The trainer said of the Luke Morris-ridden 12/1 hope: “From a 16 draw it was a very commendable performance and obviously a hot race. She has progressed from her first start at Newbury and with a better draw I think she could have been second.

 

“She had to use a bit of petrol up early and I’m very pleased that she is progressing in the right direction. She is a half-sister to Perfect Tribute who has served us well all year and hopefully this filly has inherited a bit of her ability.”

FOURTH RACE WINNING QUOTES

I-SHARES FILLIES’ STAKES (GROUP 3)

 

MEEZNAH AT THE DOUBLE FOR DETTORI

 

Meeznah completed a 37.5/1 double for jockey Frankie Dettori when giving trainer David Lanigan the biggest success of his career so far in the Group Three i-Share Fillies’ Stakes.

 

The four-year-old finished second to Snow Fairy in last year’s Oaks at Epsom but was subsequently disqualified for testing positive for a banned substance and this was the first Group victory of her career.

 

“Frankie rode her today because the owners are friends of Sheikh Mohammed, who retains him, but Ted Durcan deserves a lot of the credit for the work he has done with this filly at home,” said Lanigan.

 

“She’s very difficult to get fit at home and her home work has got worse from three to four. I took her to Yarmouth last week for a racecourse gallop to wake her up. If you saw her working at home, you wouldn’t back her for a selling plate.

 

“I was shocked when I saw what price she was this morning because she hated the ground last time, so you could forget that and I’d have been very disappointed if she’d not been thereabouts. That was her true performance today.

 

“She’s in all sorts of races, including something at Deauville and the Irish St Leger, but I’d think the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster would be right up her street.”

 

Dettori, who also won the Artemis Goodwood Cup on Opinion Poll, is still suffering the after effects of a fall at Ascot on Saturday.

 

“I couldn’t kick a football at the moment and I’m in quite a bit of discomfort,” said the jockey. “I’m taking a lot of painkillers but when you ride winners the pain goes away.

 

“I think I could have pulled out a bit more today and she has improved on her last run back to last year’s form.”

 

The race was won in a course record of 2 minutes 57.61 seconds and Dettori added: “We did go fast and it was a bit like the Tour de France. When one horse dropped out, another took on the running so there was a strong pace throughout the race.”

 

 

Fourth race placed quotes

I-Share Fillies’ Stakes

 

SHANKARDEH DEFIES MARKET DRIFT TO TAKE SECOND

 

French raider Shankardeh went for a walk in betting on the I-Share Fillies’ Stakes, touching 13/2 from 9/2, but she ran a fine race to take second behind Meeznah.

Shankardeh, who was ridden by Christophe Lemaire, is trained by Makfi’s trainer, Mikael Delzangles, who said: “I’m very pleased with, and while she was beaten by a better filly today she ran a fine race and was very courageous.

 

“She didn’t handle the first turn very well, which wasn’t a big surprise, but she stayed on very well. She has a big heart.

 

“She could run next in any kind of race over a mile and a half. The Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster is a possibility, but she also has engagements at Deauville too.”

 

Motrice finished third in this race last year for owner Kirsten Rausing, and she repeated that today under jockey Seb Sanders. Trainer Sir Mark Prescott said: “I thought she ran a really good race over a trip that is probably too short for her, but they went a tremendous gallop which helped.

 

“We’re pleased, but we would have liked to have won. Miss Rausing just wants to get that big black type, which means winning, not just being placed in a Group race, so I  think she may have to go to Germany or somewhere like that. Otherwise she could run in the Doncaster Cup once more.”

Third Race Win Quotes -

Artemis Goodwood Cup

 

TOE NO HINDRANCE AS DETTORI FORCES OPINION

            Frankie Dettori’s fractured toe prevented the crowd favourite from performing a trademark flying dismount but failed to hinder his capacity in the saddle as he drove the Mahmood Al Zarooni-trained Opinion Poll to victory in the Group Two Artemis Goodwood Cup.

            Godolphin’s number one rider pointed to his toe, bruised and swollen as a result of the hairline fracture suffered in his fall from Rewilding at Ascot on Saturday, and apologised to the expectant crowd gathered around the winner’s enclosure before sliding carefully out of the saddle.

            Asked if he would have taken this week off to recuperate had it not been Glorious Goodwood, he replied: “Most definitely.”

            The Italian rode a patient race in the two-mile contest aboard the 9/2 favourite, runner-up in the Ascot Gold Cup on his previous start, as Overturn opened up a wide lead from the turn into the straight. Opinion Poll gradually wore down that rival and kept the rest of the pursuing pack at bay to score by a head from another Godolphin horse, the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Lost In The Moment.

            Dettori continued: “He is an honest horse, who never runs a bad race. He was second in the Gold Cup and I think the ground was fairly quick enough for him but he has a lot of courage and is a very hard horse to pass.

            “We went very fast and this horse is quite lazy, so I couldn’t take the chance of going through them, so I took him on the outside and got him going in plenty of time. As it happened, I was there plenty early enough and he started to put the brakes on a bit but luckily the line was just there for me.”

            Al Zarooni said: “I like Goodwood, it is one of England’s most famous racecourses so I am very happy to win a race here and I am very happy for the team that we have won a Group Two cup race.

            “Frankie said to me, ‘I will win the race, I know the horse very well and he will stay’. Frankie is always good in the big races, even when he is injured. He did brilliant, he was very patient. We have a good horse and a good jockey, with that you can win the race.

            “He is a tough horse and he always does his best. Frankie gave him a nice relaxed time in the beginning of the race and he came through in the end.

            “The Melbourne Cup is an idea but I will have to go back to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed and racing manager Simon Crisford because they know more about the races in England and what will be suitable for him - I am inexperienced.

            “His Highness is very smart so he decides to put in two trainers and the results are good for Godolphin. To me, it doesn’t matter if I win or Saeed (bin Suroor) wins, I want Godolphin to win races.”

            Simon Crisford, Godolphin racing manager, said: “I think that it was a fantastic race. Opinion Poll has got plenty of class but we were slightly worried that the ground might be a bit too quick for him. He has got a lot of class  and finished off the race really well.

            “Lost In The Moment came from a long way back and we told William to ride him cold  and come through tired and beaten horses, which he did. He was a bit unlucky with his trip but I think that we have two lovely stayers and two really good horses for the European campaign.

            “His Highness Sheikh Mohammed is committed equally to both stables and it has worked out really well. There is a lot of friendly rivalry between the two stables.

            “All credit to Frankie. He has a small hairline fracture in his toe but it is not preventing him from riding every bit as well as he can. He would have hated to miss Goodwood - we all love Glorious Goodwood - so he did everything he could to get back.            

            “Opinion will stick to this trip and we will have a look at the big feature races but, when we get to the autumn with the soft ground, I would imagine that the two-mile race at Ascot on Champions’ Day will be his aim. It’s a valuable contest and he is likely to get his ground.

            “Lost In The Moment is off a handy weight in the Ebor so we will look at that for him. Saeed is looking forward to seeing Poet’s Voice, who will be back later on this month but both him and Mahmood work for the same company, and that’s the main point. If one can’t win, they want the other stable to win because it’s very important that Godolphin itself performs well at the top level.

            “Frankie is a great ambassador for the sport and people have paid a lot of money to come to the races today. Obviously he is a great showman and a great attraction as well as the horses.”

            Following an inquiry, the stewards found that the victorious Dettori was in breach of Schedule (B)6 Part 2, in that he had used his whip with excessive frequency. He was suspended for two days (Thursday, August 11 and Saturday August 12)

 

THIRD RACE PLACED QUOTES

ARTEMIS GOODWOOD CUP (GROUP 2)

 

LOST BY A MOMENT

 

Godolphin’s second string Lost In The Moment, trained by Saeed bin Suroor, failed by a head to defeat the same owner’s Opinion Poll, from Mahmood Al Zarooni’s stable, when flying at the finish of the Artemis Goodwood Cup.

 

“He ran a huge race,” said bin Suroor of the runner-up. “For a second I thought he had won. I told the jockey to sit in behind and relax the horse because it was a new trip for him. He came from a long way back but very nearly won. The ground was right for him today and we thought we would try him at this distance. He could go for the Ebor (in which he has 9st 5lb) at York now.”

 

Nine-year-old Blue Bajan was a neck behind in third and trainer David O’Meara said: “He ran a tremendous race and the 3lb penalty was probably the undoing of him. He’s nine but he’s in the form of his life and will go for the Lonsdale Cup at York now. He was disappointing in the Gold Cup at Ascot last month because the ground was too soft for him.”

Second race winner’s quotes

Audi King George Stakes

 

NUNTHORPE FOR AUDI KING GEORGE WINNER MASAMAH

 

            A scintillating win by sprinter Masamah in the £85,000 Audi King George Stakes has teed up an attempt on the Group 1 Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes at York next month.

            Yet trainer Kevin Ryan is also considering running the five-year-old gelding over six furlongs in September’s Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock Park before dropping back to five furlongs for Longchamp’s Prix de l’Abbaye.

            Ryan, who trains Masamah for Dr Marwan Koukash, said: “We knew he was a good horse last year and he did really well over the winter having trained well through the autumn. Obviously, he’s gone from strength to strength and is very easy to train.

            “I was a little worried about running him downhill here because he has so much natural speed and I thought a flatter track would suit better. Horses often love or loathe Goodwood, but he’s done it well.”

            Of Koukash, Ryan said: “Marwan’s not been in the game a long time, but he’s fresh blood and that’s always good, especially in this period of time. He’s put a lot of money in and he understands some of the problems we experience when training horses.”

            Koukash was equally generous in commenting on Ryan, saying: “The secret of success in this sport, when you come in as a novice or someone who knows nothing about it, is to be associated with people you can trust, and Kevin is one of those people. I met him three years ago and we’ve had fun since.”

            Koukash added: “This is my first Group 2 winner in England, although we’ve won one or two overseas. Kevin and I have had some good winners this year - we’ve changed things around and it has worked out. This is my 56th winner of the year, and there have been some good ones among them in heritage handicaps and races like the Bunbury Cup. I enjoy the sport as much as ever if not more.”

            Ryan said: “I don’t know how high this horse might go. I can’t see a problem with him staying six furlongs in the Sprint Cup. He’s very simple and doesn’t have to make the running. He can drop in. It will be Nunthorpe, then possibly the Sprint Cup then the Abbaye.”

            Winning jockey Jamie Spencer said: “He doesn’t have to make the pace but he got a great start and, when you’ve got that, you don’t give it away. That’s what I told Emma [Spencer in the charity race] to do earlier but I think she forgot her instructions!

            “He travelled beautifully and, with William Buick arrived upsides at halfway, I thought that he was getting pretty handy so I sent him on going down to the two-furlong pole. He is one of those horses who only does what you ask him and he gets five furlongs really well - five and a half is probably his best trip. Kevin has only had him two seasons and he has really, really improved - he’s gone from handicapper to Group winner now.

            “He will go on any ground but he wouldn’t want it too soft - a bit of ease wouldn’t harm his chances because he is a big strong horse. He is just very, very fast when he breaks quickly. I missed it in the Dash at Epsom and it’s like Catch 22 - he either jumps or he doesn’t.

            “He has improved a lot already this season, considering he was being beaten in handicaps. You can never a discount a sprinter when they get like this - he is very happy in himself.”

            Victor Chandler and Paddy Power quote Masamah at 12/1 for the Nunthorpe Stakes, while William Hill offer 14/1, and retain Sole Power and Bated Breath as 6/1 joint-favourites.

Audi King George Stakes

 

AMOUR CEDES TO MASAMAH AGAIN

 

Amour Propre found only Masamah his superior for the second race in succession as he finished a gallant second in the Group Two Audi King George Stakes.

 

Trainer Henry Candy was pleased with his charge who has overcome health issues to return with two runner-up efforts this term, having also been second behind Masamah at York on July 11.

 

Candy said of the 6/1 shot: “It was a replay of York and the other horse is better, quite simply.

 

“Amour Propre ran a wonderful race and to come back from what he has been through to run two good races is a miracle, I think. He bled badly for a long time and nothing was helping him so I had to revert to nature. I stuck him out in a field day and night for six months, basically.

 

“I didn’t put him in the Nunthorpe Stakes because I thought it would be asking a miracle and I don’t regret it. If he’s still going strongly we might run him in the Prix de l’Abbaye but he does want top of the ground. It’s quite rare for Longchamp to have top of the ground at that stage of the season.”

 

Group Therapy was runner-up to Borderlescott in this race 12 months ago when in the care of Jeremy Noseda. Now trained by David Barron for Pearl Bloodstock, the six-year-old rattled home late to take third at 16/1, a further half-length behind Amour Propre.

 

Barron commented: “We couldn’t complain, we’re in the money and when you’re beaten you will always wish things could have gone slightly better for you but I’m sure if you talk to six or seven of the other trainers they’ll tell you exactly the same. That’s racing.

 

“He’s not in the Nunthorpe at York. He has one or two options but we will see how he comes out of the race before making any plans.”

FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES

BETFRED THE BONUS KING HANDICAP

 

FRANKEL COLOURS IN FRONT AGAIN

 

            The green, pink and white colours of Khalid Abdulla, so memorably carried to victory by Frankel in yesterday’s QIPCO Sussex Stakes, were back in front again aboard Labarinto in the opening Betfred The Bonus King Handicap.

            Ryan Moore steered the well-backed winner to a three-quarters of a length victory and Abdulla’s racing manager, Teddy Grimthorpe, is hoping the colt is still on the upgrade.

            “He’s been an improving horse and come on well. It looked like he needed the run a bit at Newmarket last time, he got a little bit tired there in the closing stages,” said Grimthorpe.

            “Ryan had to weave his way through but he got there in the end, once he got clear he kicked on well. I would think nine to 10 furlongs would be the best trip for him, Ryan certainly seemed to think so.

            “We’ll see what the handicapper does to see where he goes but I hope he’s still progressing and you always hope they might eventually step up to Listed or Group class.”

            Ryan Moore added: “He is a nice little horse and the race worked out pretty smoothly for him. He deserved to win a nice race. He just got squeezed out coming out of the stalls, which I didn’t need, and I was further back that I would have like to him been. As the gaps came, he had enough foot to take them and he picked up well in the last furlong. Goodwood is one the best tracks in the country and it is always nice to be here.”

            Grimthorpe reported that Frankel had travelled back well last night after his brilliant five-length success.

            “He was absolutely fine this morning, there were no problems,” said Grimthorpe. “Our initial reaction was that he’ll probably go for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions’ Day next but we will see how the horse has come out of the race. It will be up to the horse to tell us.

            “Prince Khalid would obviously love to win his race, the Juddmonte International, at York but it is only three weeks away and might just come a bit too soon.

            “He’s going to stay in training next season and I’d think we might look at the Breeders’ Cup at the end of next year, it would be unlikely this season. Champions’ Day is on October 15 so that’s a long time since he started off in the Greenham at Newbury in April. It would be asking a lot to go to America after Champions’ Day. We’ve got to prove him a champion in this country this year.

            “The horse has grown in the public’s admiration and it is great that racing has got something like that to hang on to. Prince Khalid absolutely loved it yesterday and had a great day.”

 

GOING CHANGE

 

            Following the first race on day three of Glorious Goodwood, the going has changed Good to Firm, Good in places, having formerly been Good.

 

First Race Quotes -

Betfred The Bonus King Handicap

 

LIGHTNING FAILS TO STRIKE

 

Chain Lightning and Swift Alhaarth had to settle for the minor spots after Ryan Moore galvanised Labarinto to a three quarters of a length victory in the Betfred The Bonus King Handicap.

 

Trainer Richard Hannon was pleased with the run of second Chain Lightning who came from off the pace in the 10-furlong contest to take a narrow lead only to be headed by the winner deep inside the distance.

 

Hannon said of the 8/1 shot: “I’m very happy, the horse ran a good race; he just found one too good. He kept on well and that’s what you want to see, so I’m very pleased.”

 

Swift Alhaarth, ridden by birthday boy Franny Norton, had them all off the bridle as he led the charge for home into the final quarter-mile but the Mark Johnston-trained 28/1 hope was headed about a furlong from the finish and battled on to pass the post a further head behind the runner-up in third.

 

Johnston commented: “He has run very well and done everything right, and Franny said if he hadn’t drifted then he might have won it because every time he saw another horse he found a bit more again.

 

“He is a difficult horse, tactically, because he looks like he’s done too much because he runs a bit free but he does stay on well. Franny has ridden him once before but maybe if Joe Fanning was on he would have had the confidence to kick even though he was way out in front, which might have made a difference.

 

“He keeps on very well but he does run like a horse who looks like he’s going far too free, particularly over a mile and a quarter but he doesn’t stop. Like the commentator said, he was swallowed up a furlong and a half out but he was still in front!”

 

GROUND AFTER THE FIRST RACE

 

Ryan Moore, rider of the winner Labarinto, said: “Good, but quicker than yesterday.”

 

Richard Hughes, on board the second Chain Lightning, said: “A bit quicker than yesterday.”

 

Frankie Dettori, rider of Belgian Bill, said: “It is a little bit quicker than yesterday. Maybe good good to firm.”

 

Tom Queally, partner of Specific Gravity, said: “Nice ground.”

 

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

 

Silvestre De Sousa, jockey of Oceanway, said: “Good to firm.”

 

Paul Hanagan, partner of Las Verglas Star, said: “Faster than yesterday.”

 

Franny Norton, partner of Swift Alhaarth, said: “A bit quicker than yesterday.”

The Magnolia Cup

 

EDIE PROVES A HOTSHOT IN LADIES’ CHARITY RACE

 

Event rider and supermodel Edie Campbell, 20, who lives in London and keeps her horses in Warwickshire, won the first-running of Audi’s Magnolia Cup, a charity race in aid of Great Ormond Street.

 

Campbell partnered Harrodian Hotshot, who is better-known as George Baker, a useful handicapper trained in Hampshire by George Baker. Harrodian Hotshot won by three and a half lengths from the fast finishing Emma Spencer-ridden Royal Star, with Lady’s Lost Cause, the mount of international dressage rider Laura Bechtolsheimer, a head away third of the 11 runners.

 

Following the six-furlongs dash, an excited Campbell said: “It’s an amazing feeling, and so surreal I really don’t know how to feel - it was so much fun - the best fun I have ever had.

 

“I ride in events, but just as a hobby, and have never ridden in a race, other than racing against my friends when we were children on ponies. I didn’t think of winning until I had crossed the line. I went clear but started getting really tired, then thought, ‘come on, push on’.

 

“He’s an amazing horse, he’s wicked, and so kind. I don’t think he’ll make an eventer - he hasn’t got a very good trot.”

 

George Baker, the trainer added: “Edie is a star - I take my hat off to her. She has been with us for a fortnight, riding out every morning, and taking it very seriously. This horse is becoming a bit of a legend.”

 

Runner-up Emma Spencer, a presenter on Channel 4 Racing, rode Royal Star for trainer Jane Chapple-Hyam. Spencer said: “It was great fun. I’m tired and glad it’s over. I want to get back to my day job. My horse is such a nice ride and I was never too far away from the pace, but I was never, ever going to get near the winner. I’m knackered.”

 

Laura Bechtolsheimer said: “That was awesome fun - I want to do it again now. It felt quick and it was over too fast. Everyone had warned me they would start fast so I grabbed hold of the neck strap and went for it. I didn’t get a very good position, and the coach, I mean the trainer [Richard Fahey], said get on the rail, but we were lined up in the middle of the field. I feel I’ve let the horse down a bit, but I want to do it again.”

 

CHARITY JOCKEYS’ REACTIONS AFTER THE MAGNOLIA CUP

 

Daisy Trayford, who partnered fourth Casa Goodba, said: “I really, really enjoyed that, it was such a thrill. I have to say a big thanks to all of the trainers because it must have been difficult to source all the horses. It was a fantastic opportunity and great to be involved.”

 

Delfina Figueras, partner of seventh Goodwood Treasure, said: “I enjoyed it enormously, it was beyond my expectations but I have no legs left - not since the third furlong. I got off the horse and went straight to the floor. I would love to have another go. I am coming back for sure.”

 

Kate Reardon, 10th on Jungle Bay, said: “I’m alive - the best feeling in the world is that I never ever have to do that again - but it was brilliant!

 

“I think I may have just destroyed one horse’s reputation but the Baldings have been very, very generous and I am extremely grateful. It is a proper once in a life time opportunity.”

 

Dido Harding, jockey of the sixth Always Delivering, said: “It was brilliant, but I was kicking for five of the six furlongs so I am bright red. What an absolute privilege to race flat out down Goodwood’s straight with everyone laughing at you.”

 

Sara Cox, rider of ninth Ridgeway Rocket, said: “I’ve been very nervous. I’ve not been sleeping well for the last two nights - more excitement than anything else. I can’t thank John Hills enough for letting me ride the horse because he is gorgeous. He is used to further distances so he didn’t really want to stop, so when we stoped after six furlongs he was a bit confused and wanted to keep going. Maybe next time I will ride him for a mile.”

 

Francesca Cumani piloted the fifth Black Magic and commented: “That was brilliant, a really great experience. I had a nice ride and the track felt lovely. It’s great to be involved in this and a privilege on such a big stage.”

 

Claire Milford-Haven, rider of 11th-placed  The Beauty And The Bookie, said: “We had a bit of trouble starting - she didn’t want to jump off -so we lost quite a few lengths at the start. I really enjoyed it though and had a great time. I felt safe all the way and it felt good. She is a lovely mare.” 

 

Annette Lynton Mason who fell from Three Crowns (Avon River) shortly after passing the winning post has been taken to St Richards’s, Chichester Hospital for further tests.

HOOF IT TAKES CENTRE STAGE

 

            The Mick Easterby camp was left satisfied after Hoof It, now the clear 6/1 favourite for Saturday’s Blue Square Stewards’ Cup, picked up stall 18 for the prestigious six-furlong sprint at the draw held this morning in the Goodwood winners’ enclosure.           

            Hoof It was the fourth name drawn from the “hat” by Didi Hamman, the former Liverpool and Germany footballer who is now manager of Blue Square Premier League side Stockport County.

            John Sexton was on hand to make the selection for the Easterby stable. He said: “The plan was to try and get a central position. The original thinking that Mick and David (son and assistant) Easterby wanted was stall 17. That was before the draw started and they decided to go 18 because they think the pace will be down the middle. They were very happy with that.”

            The Easterby camp was also pleased with the 23 stall for Ancient Cross. The seven-year-old was 24th of the 28 names to be drawn.

            Sexton explained: “With Ancient Cross, he needs to be covered up so it was a case of going where there was most cover for him. Stall one was never an option.”

            Hoof It’s placing in stall 18 influenced the decision of Dandy Nicholls, who after having to wait until tenth pick to place the first of his six contenders, then had to make four selections in succession.

            Tajneed, the first of those to come out, was placed in stall 17, Victoire De Lyphar  goes from the 15 draw, last year’s winner Evens And Odds will break from 14 and Tax Free is berthed in 13.

            After that flush of luck, Nicholls’ two remaining runners were the final two out of the Blue Square embossed box. Docofthebay, the penultimate pick was slotted into stall 25, while the 28th and final draw, Nasri, will find himself in stall 27.

            Alex Greaves, wife and assistant trainer to Nicholls, relayed the Thirsk handler’s wishes via telephone.

            She commented: “We thought we wanted to go low to middle and after Hoof It came out and was put in 18 well, he’s on top of his game at the moment. The way it is looking they are probably going to tend to race towards the middle.

            “The two at the end, well we had no choice with that, it was pot luck. You have got to take the draw but at least they are right up against the fence.”

            Secret Asset, who will emerge form stall 5, ensured his participation in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup after picking up a 6lb penalty following a five-furlong victory here on Tuesday, the opening day of Glorious Goodwood.

            Simon Pierpoint, representing trainer Jane Chapple-Hyam, revealed: “We wanted to be more in the centre but he was pulled late in the day - 22nd. We nearly went to the opposite side but Jane was on the phone so we went with the trainer.”

            The Kevin Ryan-trained Tiddliwinks, 25th to be drawn, was slotted into stall 26 by former trainer David Barker, representing the North Yorkshire handler.

            Barker said: “The instructions were that if he doesn’t get 28, he wants 26, so I’ve done as I was told.”

 

 

FAST-TRAPPING HAGGAS GOES HIGH AND LOW

 

Trainer William Haggas found himself on the spot at today’s draw for Saturday’s Blue Square Stewards’ Cup.

His horses High Standing and Dafeef were the first and second to emerge, giving the Newmarket trainer no chance of assessing where the fancied horses, or the pace, would be emerging. At least he had the consolation of first choice, and, in a phone conversation with his trackside representative Claire Goodenough he opted for stall 28, against the grandstand rail, for High Standing, and stall 2 on the far side, for Dafeef.

Nick Luck, who orchestrated the draw with football manager Didi Hamman of Blue Square Premier League side Stockport County, had explained in advance that horses drawn on the far side would be able to race on a fresh strip of ground, but many trainers or their representatives opted for middle draws.

Television presenter Mike Cattermole represented trainer Bryan Smart, who runs Fitz Flyer. ‘Catt’ chose stall 16 and said: “He’s a fast horse and the winner has emerged from the middle in the past four or five years. We wanted an even number which means they’re not hanging about [in the stalls] too long. We’re happy to be in the middle.”

Graham Dench, who acted on behalf of Walter Swinburn, trainer of Crown Choice, also wanted an even number, for horses drawn in odd stalls are loaded first. Dench said: “Six is exactly what Walter wanted. He wanted to be middle to far side and he preferred an even number so the horse wouldn’t be one of the first into the stalls.”

Trainer Richard Fahey had to wait until the draw was more than half over before the names of his two runners emerged. Fahey’s Quest For Success will race from stall 11, while Brave Prospector was given stall 8. Fahey said: “I normally have to wait a while before my horses are drawn, and it’s normally good for me. To be honest it doesn’t look as though the draw will make much difference because people have been taking stalls all over the place. I think the pace will be in the middle - but for my two a lot of rain will help.”

Michael Channon, on behalf of his father Mick, elected to take stall 9 for Atlantic Sport. He said: “[Jockey] Hugh Bowman wanted stall 10 before the draw because he’s a horse that needs a bit of cover and the chance to travel into the race. With Dandy Nicholls’ horses giving a bit of pace just above us it made sense to go there. Hopefully, we can slot in behind them. Our fellow’s in great form and very genuinely handicapped - we don’t have any cards up our sleeves there, but there could be a big race in him. Whether he’s got the weight to allow him to do it on Saturday we’ll see. We’re not disappointed with the draw.”

The Andrew Balding-trained Mon Cadeaux will be in stall 3. Geoff Lester, representing Balding, said: “Andrew wanted to wait and see where the pace was, and he gave me a few names to note like Nasri, Tiddliwinks and Evens And Odds, but we were fifth out before they were drawn so we had to take pot luck. We wanted to be low rather than high.”

Edinburgh Knight, who has been a mover in the betting, was drawn 10 by trainer Paul D’Arcy, who said: “I said when he won at Newcastle he has to be fresh. He ran well at Ascot, but then I ran him too quickly at York to try and get him up the handicap for the Wokingham and it was a mistake. I’m happy with stall 10 - the pace will be up the middle and I don’t want to be on the pace, but just behind it.”

 

 

MIDDAY, MISTY FOR ME & SNOW FAIRY HEAD SUPER SEVEN IN MARKEL INSURANCE NASSAU STAKES

 

HOOF IT AMONG MAXIMUM FIELD OF 28 FOR BLUE SQUARE STEWARDS’ CUP

 

Midday takes on six rivals as she bids to become the first mare to win three renewals of the £185,000 Group One Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes (3.10pm), highlight of the fifth and final day of Glorious Goodwood, Saturday, July 30.

 

Khalid Abdulla’s five-year-old has posted a pair of comfortable victories in the 10-furlong contest over the past two years and trainer Sir Henry Cecil and jockey Tom Queally head into Saturday’s race in scintillating form following the stunning success of fellow Abdulla homebred Frankel in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes at Goodwood on Wednesday.

 

Five-time Group One heroine Midday followed up a cosy success in the 2009 renewal of the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes with another ultimately comfortable victory last year and heads into this year’s race, the fifth Filly & Mare contest in the QIPCO British Champions Series, after taking second in Group One company on her two most recent starts.

She kicked off the campaign when going down by a length to St Nicholas Abbey in the Coronation Cup at Epsom on June 3 but failed to build on that promising effort when finding Misty For Me six lengths too strong in the Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh on June 25.

 

The Aidan O’Brien-trained Misty For Me (Seamie Heffernan) has proven herself to be one the leading three-year-old fillies this season and the four-time Group One winner will be aiming to strike another blow for the Classic generation following the recent victories of Nathaniel in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Frankel in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes.

 

In a true clash of the ages, four-year-old Snow Fairy (Frankie Dettori) will be representing the very best of last year’s Classic form, having triumphed in both the English and Irish Oaks.

 

Ed Dunlop’s charge started last season with a ready victory in the Listed Height Of Fashion Stakes at Goodwood and ended a progressive campaign with a pair of victories at the highest level in the Far East. She kicked of the current term when finishing fourth in the Group One Coral-Eclipse at Sandown on July 2.

 

Patrick Cooper, racing manager to owner Cristina Patino, reported today: ”Snow Fairy worked very well the other day and Ed has been very pleased with her. We were delighted with her run at Sandown and it was just nice to see her on the racecourse after seven months off.

 

“She started last season at Goodwood, so the course holds no fears and we are hopeful that she can get her season going on Saturday. She needs fast ground and so the forecast conditions should be perfect for her.

 

“It was unfortunate that she didn’t get to take on Midday and Misty For Me in the Pretty Polly Stakes. The heavens opened the day before and we know she doesn’t like soft ground, so we decided to give it a miss.

 

“It should be a cracking race on Saturday. Midday has obviously won the last two renewals and Misty For Me has won four Group One races herself so she must be quite good.

 

“There are so many good horses in training at the moment, whether they are three-year-olds or the older horses, and it’s highlighted by races like the King George, the Sussex Stakes and the Nassau Stakes. It’s the time of year when the season gets very exciting.”

 

Sir Michael Stoute saddles Crystal Capella (Ryan Moore), who beat the colts on her latest start in the Group Two Princess of Wales's sportingbet.com Stakes at Newmarket on July 7, while connections of Midday will also be represented by Newcastle Listed scorer Principal Role (Richard Hughes). The field is completed by the Richard Fahey-trained Barefoot Lady (Paul Hanagan) and Field Day (Kieren Fallon), from the stable of Brian Meehan.

 

Goodwood also hosts one of the most competitive sprint handicaps of the year, the £100,000 Blue Square Stewards’ Cup (3.45pm) and a maximum field of 28 for the six-furlong contest includes top-weight and favourite Hoof It from Mick Easterby’s Yorkshire Stables and the James Fanshawe-trained Mac’s Power. At today’s draw ceremony, Hoof It’s connections chose stall 18, while his main rival will emerge from one.

 

For the first time this year, Saturday’s card commences with the consolation race for horses that fail to make the final line-up for the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup, the 26-strong £30,000 Bluesquare.com Stewards' Sprint Handicap (2.05pm).

 

Verdant, successful in the UBS Handicap at Glorious Goodwood last year, is among a field of 14 for the £40,000 Toyo Tires Summer Handicap (2.35pm) over a mile and three quarters, while Newmarket runner-up Sports Section will be bidding to go one place better in the seven-furlong £17,500 Overtones EBF ‘Schiaparelli’ Maiden Stakes (4.20pm), which has attracted 16 runners.

 

The action is completed by the six-furlong £15,000 Best Western Horses Help Heroes Nursery Handicap (4.55pm, 16 runners) and the £15,000 Telegraph Apprentice Handicap (5.35pm, 18 runners) over nine furlongs.

FRANKLY IT’S ALL ABOUT FRANKEL

 

There is only one topic for analysis in today’s national and local newspaper racing pages - or, to be more accurate, only one horse.

‘Frankly the best’ is Tony Lewis’s view in the Daily Star, while ‘Frankel the wonder horse’ is The Guardian’s take above Greg Wood’s report, and that same paper devotes half the front page of its sports section to a stunning close-up of Khalid Abdulla’s colt, with jockey Tom Queally in the drive position, but barely moving a muscle; ‘Simply the best’ is the view of Rob Atkins, who reports for Portsmouth’s The News, and also of Chris Goulding in his Daily Express column, while one headline in the same paper claims ‘What a mismatch’, which seems harsh on the vanquished, but, in the context of the race, fair.

The Daily Telegraph deserves top marks from the racecourse for its Goodwood coverage, which includes a two-page spread in the sports section. ‘Fearless Frankel blows his rivals away’ headlines J A McGrath’s report, and another superb photograph of the wonder horse conveys his crushing performance. This spread also includes a double-column of ‘Goodwood Diary’ by Bryony Gordon.

‘The Greatest’ says Claude Duval in the Sun, while both The Times and the Daily Mirror takes a quote from trainer Henry Cecil - ‘Frankel is best I’ve ever seen’ - to illustrate reports by Alan Lee and David Yates respectively. That Cecil adulation is also worked into the headline above Chris McGrath’s column in The Independent, and it cannot be accused of misleading readers by stating ‘Frankel takes the breath away’. Ask those in attendance.

Nor can The Racing Post be upbraided for aligning racing’s new star with a creature that lives in Loch Ness. ‘Now there can be no doubt - he’s a monster!’ states the paper. It once renamed Giant’s Causeway ‘The Iron Horse’, a soubriquet which that colt’s owners clearly enjoyed. Whether the Cecil camp will appreciate ‘Frankelstein’ is not yet known.

Rob Wright, who tips in The Times, picks up on the probable next phase of Frankel adulation. Having obliterated the best older miler he can only rise further in the public’s estimation by extending his unbeaten sequence and amassing Group 1 victories. ‘True heir to Brigadier Gerard’ is the theme of Wright’s article, reminding readers of that horse’s 17 wins in 18 races, and 13 at Group 1 level. With eight wins and four in the top grade, Frankel has a long way to go, but won’t it be fascinating to see if he can achieve it - and that will depend on him racing at four years of age, as did ‘The Brigadier’.

At least the Canford Cliffs camp had some consolation by their success in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes. ‘Chandlery gives Hannon something to smile about’ is the message above Greg Wood’s report on that race in The Guardian, and Alan Lee makes a similar consoling reference in The Times.

Local weekly the Chichester Observer, a broadsheet with plenty of room to take a pictorial view of Glorious Goodwood, places a shot of the alluring Jessica Martin alongside a horse on the front cover - both are statuesque - while the same paper’s sports pages provide a feast of reports, action shots and reviews. This annual summer festival of racing deserves nothing less.

 

SUPER-SUB SAGRAMOR MAKES THE TOTESPORT MILE CUT

 

The defection of Dunno from tomorrow’s totesport Mile (3.10pm) clears the way for the well-backed Sagramor, first reserve for the race, to take his place in the £125,000 handicap.

 

Trainer Clive Cox declared Dunno a non-runner at 8.45am after a blood analysis was found to be abnormal.

 

The Hughie Morrison-trained Sagramor received strong support from antepost bettors for the lucrative mile prize off the back of his last two runs, which brought victories in the Betfred Silver Bowl Handicap at Haydock and Royal Ascot’s Britannia Handicap.

 

Sagramor is currently 7/1 second-favourite for the totesport Mile with Betfred, totesport’s new owner.

 

Totesport representative George Primarolo commented: “It is a good result for antepost punters who put their faith in the horse because he was well supported.

 

“It is good for the race to have one of the more well-fancied runners in the race and we have to take our hats off to the reserve system.”
