FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2011





For the fourth day in the row, the attendance has shown an increase over last year. There were 21,569 racegoers for the fourth day of Glorious Goodwood, as against 20,784 for the corresponding day in 2010.


Adam Waterworth, Managing Director of Goodwood Racecourse, commented: “It is excellent news that we have more people attending Glorious Goodwood each day so far this week. The racing could hardly have been more thrilling and now we are looking forward to the fifth and final day tomorrow which features the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes and the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup.”





After a warm day at Goodwood on Friday, clerk of the course Seamus Buckley is expecting the ground to dry out from good to firm, good in places to good to firm for Saturday’s racing. He will be watering selectively overnight.


“I would say that the ‘good’ will come out of the ground for tomorrow,” said Buckley. “I will be watering three furlongs on the top bend, putting on six to eight millimetres of water. I will also be moving the rail on the same three furlongs so that there will be fresh ground on that bend.


“Tomorrow morning might start a bit damp and a little drizzly, but that is supposed to clear by eight to nine o’clock.”

Jockey Adam Beschizza, rider of 15/8 favourite Green Destiny in the totesport Mile Heritage Handicap, reported that the gelding was never travelling. The stewards ordered a routine test.


In the same race, the veterinary officer reported that Hughie Morrison’s unplaced runner, Sagramor, was found to be lame on both hind legs.

Seventh Race Win Quotes -

Turf Club Handicap




Catfish gave owner Raymond Tooth his second success at this year’s Glorious Goodwood with a speedy performance in the five-furlong Turf Club Handicap that marks her as a filly on the upgrade.


Highly-tried on her second and final start at two when in the care of Gay Kelleway, the triumphant One Cool Cat filly augmented Tooth’s victory with the Richard Hannon-trained Moustache in Tuesday’s Casino At Bet365 Assertive Maiden.


After scoring at 40/1 on her debut at last year’s Newmarket July Festival, Catfish contested the Group Three Princess Margaret Stakes but fared poorly when 10th of 11. In taking this five-furlong contest under William Buick, she was scoring for the second time this season following a switch to Brian Meehan’s Manton yard.


Tony Stafford, Tooth’s racing manager, said: “Raymond’s not here, he will be going to Newmarket tomorrow to see his other very nice filly, Mention.


“William said she was a little bit outpaced but she really picked up and she is quick - a really quick filly. She is rated 82, so that will make her 88 or something like that.


“She won first time last year and that was a Class 2 at Newmarket and she has won two this year so I’m sure the trainer will find something for her. We can probably find a fillies’ Listed race for her later on.


“She only ran twice at two, after winning at 40/1 first time out she went to the Princess Margaret at Ascot.


“Gay bought her and did a good job with her last year but I think the thought was that she might benefit from being in a stable with some nice fillies like Theysken’s Theory, so Raymond thought in a bigger stable she might flourish and obviously we have won two now this year. But Gay did a great job bringing her along.


“Her sire, One Cool Cat, is a very good broodmare sire. She might just be quite good and she is a really good looking filly, so we shall see.”


Buick commented: “I was pleased where I was and she won well in the end. They went fast and although she’s very quick she got outpaced a bit at halfway. But she warmed into it and took a bit of pulling up at the end. She’s got a bit of nervous energy so I went down early to keep a lid on her.”

The Oak Tree Stakes (Group 3), 4.50pm


“She’s improving all the time and is on the upgrade,” said trainer Sir Henry Cecil after Chachamaidee’s win in the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes.


“She used to be very highly strung and pulled quite a lot. She has settled right down now and she ran very well at Ascot, when she was second.


“I think that she will get a mile now easily. She finished really well today and, the further she went, the better she went. It’s easier to find mile races for fillies rather than seven-furlong ones.”


The improvement in form for the filly has come about through use of a hood, which helps to block the sound.


Cecil continued: “The hood has relaxed her a lot. It’s really the padding in the ears mean that when I am shouting at her, she thinks I am talking to her.


“We are winning the battle with her. Martin, who rides her, has done a great job and she is really coming round into a high-class filly. She could be Group One class and I would like to keep her against her own sex if possible. We will have to look through the book very carefully.”

Cecil, who was the recipient of a Panama hat as a winning trainer’s prize, gave the latest news on his QIPCO Sussex Stakes winner Frankel.


“He is very relaxed, and very well. As I have already said, the plan is to have one more race this year in the QEII and then be put way for next season. He is by Galileo, the family train on well and he should be a better horse next year,” said Cecil.


“He had a hard race at Ascot, why be greedy when he is going to stay in training next year?”




Sixth Race Place Quotes -

Group Three Oak Tree Stakes





Law Of The Range attempted to lay down the law to her rivals with a gritty front-running performance that only faltered inside the final furlong of the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes.


The Marco Botti-trained filly, returned at 8/1, was seeking a four-timer in this seven-furlong event, having completed the hat-trick in a Listed contest over a mile at Pontefract on July 5.


Jockey Silvestre De Sousa took advantage of a favourable low draw to place his mount in the vanguard and the Alhaarth four-year-old responded gamely when pressure was applied in the closing two and a half furlongs.


But as the race reached its climax, first the victorious Chachamaidee swept past and then, close home, runner-up Dever Dream scooted by on the rail to leave the Botti-trained runner to accept a  gallant third, two and quarter lengths and half a length behind the front two.


Botti commented: “I am pleased with that, she has run well and she now has Black Type in a Group Three.


“The race went perfectly, she  got a soft lead and Silvestre said when he kicked she always responded but I think the first two probably had more turn of foot than her and probably more class as well but I’m sure there will be a Group Three for her somewhere. There are no excuses.


“I am not sure yet what we will do next. I might freshen her up - give her six or seven weeks and see what is available. I will discuss it with the owners.”

Fifth Race Quotes -

Rothschild Waddesdon Wines Nursery




Andrew Balding notched the fifth Glorious Goodwood success of his career as Goldoni (11/2) battled tenaciously to a short-head success under David Probert in the Rothschild Waddesdon Wines Nursery.


The Dylan Thomas colt settled in midfield after breaking from stall one and made determined progress through the final quarter-mile of the seven-furlong race under Probert, who drove his mount down the far rail to win by a narrow margin in yet another thrilling blanket finish.


Balding said; “ He met a bit of trouble, got going late and just got beat at Epsom, but he has made up for it today.


“David said the horse was very tough but he just took time to wind up. He’s by a horse that stayed a mile and a half well and he just needs further. The ground is the key to it as well. Despite on the dam side there being a soft ground suggestion there, he didn’t cope with it either at Ascot or Sandown and he has been a different horse on faster ground the last twice.


“I was saying to Mick and Janice who own him, if it was a mile I’d really fancy him but we’ve got away with it today - he’s only going to improve when we step up in trip.


“I don’t know where we go. He’s at the ride side of the handicap. Nurseries aren’t that valuable and three-year-old handicaps are, so it might be a case of waiting for next year. He is still rated 78 today and he is a fine looking horse who should go on next year.


“They have run well this week which is all you can ask for. It’s not been a very happy hunting ground for me here but Dad (Ian Balding) had a stack of winners here and I could never quite work out what we were doing wrong but two winners this week is great.”


Probert said: “He was a bit unlucky time at Epsom, he didn’t get a very good run round. He jumped and travelled well in midfield today, he has taken me through the race nicely and I thought he was going to do it easily enough but he has battled down and stuck his head out.


“It was a very close finish but I thought I’d just got back up. The draw helped, I got a couple of splits on the inside and it all played into my hands.”






The Rothschild Waddesdon Wines Nursery Stakes, 4.20pm


4/1 favourite West Leake Hare had to cut out much of the running himself and although the son of Choisir battled on gamely right to the line, he was just run out of it close to home.


“He had to tough it out and do it the hard way,” said Charlie Hills, son of trainer Barry. “He was a bit green in front, but he got the 7f trip well. We will stick to what we are doing with him for now.”





FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2011




The Tanqueray Richmond Stakes, Group Two, 3.45pm


Harbour Watch justified evens favouritism to win the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes, giving jockey Richard Hughes and trainer Richard Hannon a fifth winner apiece at this year’s meeting. The two-year-old is now the new favourite for the 2012 2,000 Guineas, with William Hill pricing him at 10/1. He is a best-priced 12/1 with Sky Bet, while Stan James have him at 6s.


All did not go smoothly through the race for Harbour Watch who was carried out into the centre of the track two furlongs from home by Bogart. It did not halt his progress and he went onto win by two and a quarter lengths, eased down.


“To do what he has done, he has to be a very good horse,” said trainer Richard Hannon. “Hughesie said that he would have won by four or five lengths if he had not been carried into the middle of the track.


“He worked last week with yesterday’s winner Casual Glimpse, and went right past him -  this is a very good horse. He will get seven furlongs or a mile. He is in everything - the Mill Reef, the Dewhurst, we will have to see.


“He has kept improving and he will be even better, the further he goes. He is probably one of the best two-year-olds that we’ve got.


“He will stay a mile - I don’t see any problem with that. He will get seven very easily and, while the Guineas is another furlong, he is a big, strong horse and there is no reason why he won’t get a mile next year. He will be a very hard horse to get in front of. I suppose we will be heading for as Group One somewhere. We will stay over a distance that we know he is good at and he can try a mile next year.”


Although the Harbour Watch will run in the same colours of Robin Heffer next time out, he will be in a new ownership partnership - Sheikh Fahad Al Thani's Pearl Bloodstock is in the process of confirming a deal to buy into the horse.


David Redvers, Sheikh Fahad's racing and bloodstock manager, said: "We have agreed a deal subject to vetting next week. He will run in a partnership between the two owners, but the colours will stay the same, they are very lucky colours!. He has been bought by Sheikh Fahad as a stallion prospect."


Hannon continued: "Sheikh Fahad is a very nice man, he is very interested in racing and putting lots of money into the sport.


"As for Canford Cliffs, that definitely was not his running earlier this week  in the Sussex Stakes. He is fine at home, but on Monday he is going for a scan just to check him out. All being well, he goes to the QEII and if he has to meet the same horse again, then so be it. We will only be 3lb difference due to the weight for age then.”


Richard Hughes added: “Being carried across the course not only cost me ground but it was at a vital stage of the race, when you are actually quickening, and I felt that the rest of the field were going that way and I was going on the round track. I had to quicken to get by the horse and, when I finally got by him, Harbour Watch changed gear and he went again - it was a very good performance.

“I had in my head that Ryan (Moore) told me that this trackmight not suit him and the boss said to remember that the race is six furlongs, not seven. All those little things go in your head and, halfway down the hill, I could have gone inside the leader that took me out and been overconfident like I normally would but I chose the safe route because I might have to get going early. As soon as he got going, he took me wide and I had to go a bit further than I wanted to.


“Harbour Watch was grand on the track. He has a lot of class and he has come on an awful lot since Ryan rode him. We think that he is very, very good. I don’t like comparing horses and I prefer them to let them prove it on the track but Canford Cliffs was the only other two-year-old to work like he did the other morning.


“He is a tall horse and he looked tall today, so he will improve physically as well. Acclamation is a great stallion - he is not a fancy stallion, but we have a lot of good Acclamations at home like him and Lilbourne Lad. Acclamation will do for me any day of the week.”


Fourth Race Quotes -

Group Two Tanqueray Richmond Stakes




            Bannock attempted to take the sting out of the talking horse Harbour Watch in the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes with a strong effort from the front but it was the Hannon-trained favourite that had the final word with a telling burst of speed that ended the six-furlong contest in a matter of strides.

            Silvestre De Sousa aboard the 13/2 shot looked to have the favourite in trouble with two furlongs to race as Bannock kicked for home off the front end, but when Richard Hughes asked the eventual winner to quicken, the Mark Johnston-trained colt’s response was insufficient. Harbour Watch’s devastating acceleration saw him burst clear for a two and quarter-length victory.

            Johnston said of the runner-up: “He ran a nice race. I don’t know where we will take him now. He has had a lot of racing, but that doesn’t mean he won’t have a lot more. We will just take it as it comes.

            “He has a bit of class but sadly not quite enough. The winner did it well.”


            Alan McCabe was thrilled with 20/1 chance Caspar Netcher who was only a further half-length back in third under Robert Winston.

            The colt turned around the form of his recent Newbury run when second to Saigon as that rival was only fifth today            McCabe said: “I’m delighted with that, he is a very consistent little horse and I’m sure one of these will fall his way one day.  Arguably we were possibly unlucky - Robbie thought we could have been second with a better run but this Harbour Watch is a machine of a two-year-old, he’s an aeroplane. We’ve done well to finish where we did.

            “My horse has turned the form around - we were unlucky because we were in front too soon at Newbury the last day and we learned from that, that’s why we held him up a bit. He was last off the bridle but the race needs to fall right for a horse like this.

            “We have loads of options and he has got a lot of big entries. We might even look for a little novice race to build his confidence.”

Third Race Win Quotes -

totesport Mile (Heritage Handicap)



            Hayley Turner’s golden season continued with a brilliant front-running victory aboard Boom And Bust in the £125,000 totesport Mile that secured the jockey a first success at Glorious Goodwood.

            Drawn in the plum number one stall, Turner jumped the 22/1 shot to the head of affairs and after seeing off Confront for the lead through the opening furlong, set a perfect tempo up front in the mile contest.

            The four-year-old gelding responded gamely to pressure through the final quarter-mile to fend of the fast finishing Proponent for a neck triumph. Third-placed Pintura was a further short-head away.


            A delighted Turner commented: “It’s going very well this season! I think being drawn one is obviously a huge advantage and he is improving - I think that I am three from three on him now.

            “I was sitting quite tight after the line because the last time I rode him, he ducked out and I fell off him - it showed that he had a bit more in the tank. He really enjoys bowling along in front, he settles well and all three races that I have ridden him, he has made the running and won.

            “I was in the best place because I missed out on all the action behind. It’s a very tough and competitive race and all of the horses look really well. It’s this time of year that they are all really buzzing and Mr Tregoning always seems to do well at Glorious Goodwood, so many thanks to his team.”


            Tregoning has endured a quiet time this year with numbers down at his Berkshire stable and Boom And Bust is only his 11th success of the campaign.

            The trainer said: “We are obviously thrilled and it was a very good ride again from the jockey. The horses have been running well - Hayley rode Lulla very well from a bad draw to finish second, beaten a head. It’s been a tough year but racing is like that - you’ve got to survive and just get on with it.

            “Boom And Bust has surprised me this year. He just fell short in a Listed race last time but he is very decent and he has done us really well. I bought him myself for not very much money so it’s very enjoyable and lovely for the owners to have a winner at Goodwood. It’s very special.”

            “We took him to the horses in training sale last autumn but we didn’t get a bid for him. Obviously, he has matured a lot and full credit to all my staff at home. We have survived some quite difficult times this year but we have all been through it before and we keep going. It’s just getting the ammunition right - we’ve been short of some good ammunition this year.

            “Hopefully, we can entice some new people. It’s a tough time to do it but I’m always very enthusiastic about that sort of thing and good winners like this hopefully help the business.

            “We’ve dropped down from about 100 to around 60 at the moment so that’s quite a big drop but some people have gone out of the game.

            “This horse I bought for £25,000, so he wasn’t expensive. Maybe that will encourage people to spend there money with me, I might get them another one like this. It’s a great day for us and Hayley, of course. Hayley is riding at the top of her form.

            “She is a girl with a clock in her head, she gave him a breather around the bend. Steve Cauthen was a man with a clock in the head but I think you can say that for Hayley Turner.

            “I always think getting drawn low gives you a 5lb advantage here and his best form is on rattling fast ground. Hayley rides quite a bit for me and she’s a really good jockey. It’s a super race to win and I love having winners at Goodwood, it’s a big thing for me. I hate it when I go away from this meeting without having had a winner. It’s nice for Jas Singh the owner as well. I think Boon And Bust is improving and might improve a bit further so it will take a huge offer to take him away from me.”






Roger Charlton, trainer of the second-placed horse Proponent, had reason to regret the stalls’ withdrawal of The Rectifier.


“I think The Rectifier would have put the pace to the race and without him we did not quite have the pace we needed,” said Charlton. “Ted [Durcan] said that Proponent just hit a flat spot in the race, but then he ran on well.


“I am delighted with his run, I think it is a career-best from him - and at the age of seven! He will go up in the handicap from this so I don’t know what will be next yet.”


After Pintura’s third, trainer David Simcock said: “I think the draw was all important here. He’s very honest, very tough and on another day the result might have been different.


“He has form on soft, but I think as long as the ground is not extreme, he will go on most surfaces. He’s very durable.”

The RSA Thoroughbred Stakes, 2.35pm


After riding a double yesterday at Glorious Goodwood, Frankie Dettori put himself back in the winner’s enclosure aboard the Mahmood Al Zarooni-trained Neebras. Dettori has now partnered four winners at the meeting, equal to Richard Hughes. He is still second in the Racing UK jockeys’ table for Glorious Goodwood as Hughes has, so far, had more placed horses.

“Neebras  was top-rated going into the race so he should have won,” said Al Zarooni of the three-year-old colt who finished fourth two outings ago in the Group One St James’s Palace at Royal Ascot behind Frankel. “The credit goes to Frankie - he didn’t panic and gave the horse a brilliant ride. Neebras did finish close to Frankel at Ascot, but Frankel got tired then. We have to see how good this horse is and will step him up in class.


“He goes to post early and can be moody - some days he wants to run and other days he doesn’t.


“Frankie rode him positively when we usually try to save him and wait. Today we said: “Go and see what happens”.


“Opinion Poll had been unlucky because he always tries and kept finishing second or third in the big races. He deserved to win the Goodwood Cup yesterday and Frankie gave him a good ride. There are plenty of options for him but I will sit with His Highness and Simon Crisford and they will decide where he goes. It’s my job to get them fit and they decide where to run.


“Blue Bunting is doing well and she will head to York for the Yorkshire Oaks. She is good form and very happy.”


Simon Crisford, racing manager for Godolphin, continued: “There is no real plan for Neebras now. We will tiptoe along, he will be well entered up and we will find a race for him, a suitable opportunity.


“He is a really nice colt, with a good future and he will be around next year.”


Frankie Dettori added: “The toe is bearing up and, like I said yesterday, I am glad that I don’t have to kick a football.


“I was trapped in a pocket - Ryan Moore had me boxed in  - so I had to switch round and lost a bit of momentum. Once Neebras found top gear, he got there in plenty of time.


“We tried to all the fancy stuff with him by chasing Frankel but Group Three is more his level now.


“I need a couple more winners - four is not enough!”



Andrew Balding, trainer of 9/1 half-length runner-up Chef, said: “I’m very pleased with him, he’s improving all the time and he’s versatile as far as ground goes, and distance too.


“I have no idea where he will go now, he ran over a mile and a quarter last time but we will just see what is suitable for him.

First Race Quotes -

Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes




            Drunken Sailor (9/2) could spearhead Luca Cumani’s raid on Australia’s flagship race, the Melbourne Cup at Flemngton in November, after storming down the rail to clinch the Coutts Glorious Stakes in a thrilling three-way photo.

            Settled towards the rear under Kieren Fallon, Drunken Sailor benefited from a clear run down the far rail from two and a half furlongs out that saw him edge to the lead close home in the mile and a half contest, to register a head victory over runner-up Harris Tweed. Jukebox Jury was a further neck back in third.

            Cumani said of the six-year-old gelding: “I think we might (enter for the Melbourne Cup), it depends on the owners because it’s a very expensive trip to undertake, to Australia, but if the owners want to go I will be delighted to take him.

            “The amazing thing is that he’s still improving at his age. We got him two years ago when he was just an ordinary 96-rated handicapper and he has done nothing but improve throughout. This year he has also developed a turn of foot, which he didn’t quite have before and so that makes him a better candidate for the Melbourne Cup than he was that year. It has nothing to do with me!

            “He went hurdling before we bought him. Alastair Donald, Luke Lillingston and Alan Leonard flagged him up as a horse that had potential for running in handicaps and at the time we were looking for horses to got to Meydan and he was quite a cheap buy really.

            “He did win twice at Meydan so he has given his owners a lot of pleasure. He won here last year in the March Stakes and was second in the Northumberland Plate and he has now won twice this year at Newbury and her, so you couldn’t wish for a better success story.

            “Manighar and Bauer could also be entered but Bauer is an old crock so I don’t know whether we’ll bring him back in time. He runs at Haydock on August 6, but he always needs a run so don’t be worried if he’s tailed off first time.”


            Fallon commented: “I wanted to go down the inside because when he sees daylight he idles. He won here last year in Listed company but he’s improving all the time. I’ve never known a horse improve so much in such a short period of time. I was towing Michael Hills because he was the one to beat and I was seeing him come off the bridle and got lucky going up the inside. I’ve got beaten on a few I should have won on this week when the gaps didn’t come.

            “He is one of my favourite little horses - he has got so much ability and has done nothing but improve since he came to Luca’s yard. You just have to get the timing right with him because, when he gets to the front, he keeps easing up and idles. He is getting better and better.

            “I got there way too soon at Newbury but, because he was better than the rest, he was able to maintain his lead. He did nothing wrong today - they went a good gallop, I got a lucky run up the inside and it all went forward for him.

            “It was too soft for him at Ascot and he still ran a great race. He just couldn’t quicken on it like he did today.”


            Drunken Sailor is a 25/1 shot for the Melbourne Cup with bookmakers William Hill and Paddy Power.






The Coutts Glorious Stakes (Group 3), 2.00pm


The trainers of the placed horses in the first race on the Friday of Glorious Goodwood, the Coutts Glorious Stakes, were magnanimous in defeat.


“He ran well, we were pleased,” said William Haggas of the second horse, Harris Tweed, who has yet to win a Group race  despite having now finished in the places in four such events. “He was very gallant, and will definitely win one of these. We will have to see where we go next, he gives himself a hard time when he runs so we will see how he comes out of this.”


Mark Johnston, trainer of the third home Jukebox Jury, was a little more rueful.


 “I think Jamie Spencer on Distant Memories deliberately holding us in cost us the race. But our horse stuck on and ran on well and ran right up to form.


“He has lots of options now and he is in Group 1s everywhere, including in Germany, however the Irish St Leger will be a definite consideration. We will look further afield toward the autumn to Group1s in Canada and America.”





Liam Jones, partner of second-placed Harris Tweed, said: “It is on the quick side.”


Neil Callan, on board third Jukebox Jury, said: “It is just on the quick side but rides well.”


Michael Hills, on board fourth Redwood, said: “Great ground.”


Frankie Dettori, partner of Campanologist, said: “It is good, good to firm - the bit of water Seamus (Buckley, Clerk of the Course) has put on it was perfect.”


Jamie Spencer, rider of Distant Memories, said: “Good.”


Hugh Bowman, rider of Halicarnassus, said: “A touch softer than yesterday.”


Tom Queally, on board Indian Days, said: “Good.”


Richard Hills, rider of Rasmy, said: “Good, good to firm.”


Ryan Moore, jockey of Nouriya, said: “It is a touch looser than yesterday.”

The going remains


Good to Firm, Good in places


after being changed to that following the first race yesterday.


Clerk of the Course Seamus Buckley carried out selective watering after racing yesterday to maintain the going description.


Some four to five millimetres was put on the straight and other areas of the course.


It was dry overnight.


The GoingStick reading at 9.30am was 8.5.


The rail on the lower bend was moved back to its original position last night and therefore there will be fresh ground on the inside of it today.


The top bend continues to be dolled out by three yards, increasing race distances on that course by five yards. The rail will be moved back tonight so as to provide fresh ground tomorrow for the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes.


Stalls’ Postions

Straight course - Stands’ side.

Round course - Inside, except 1m 4f  which will be outside.


There could be watering tonight on parts of the round course.






            With two days and 14 races remaining at Glorious Goodwood, 2011, Richard Hughes finds himself at the head of the race to be crowned RUK Leading Jockey at the meeting despite Frankie Dettori and Ryan Moore both posting doubles yesterday.

            With Dettori riding back-to-back wins on Thursday thanks to Opinion Poll in the Artemis Goodwood Cup and Meeznah in the I-Shares Filles’ Stakes, Hughes saw the Italian draw level with his three victories by mid-afternoon but maintained his overall advantage at that juncture courtesy of a second place.

            Hughes, who took the title last year with a record nine wins at the meeting, responded in the day’s penultimate contest with a cosy success on Casual Glimpse that took his tally to four; but then Moore, who had broken his duck for the week when landing the day’s opener aboard Labarinto, made certain that he too remains in strong contention for the title with a nose victory in the  concluding betfred.com Handicap that sees him holding two successes.

            Tom Queally whose two victories so far included that stunning QIPCO Sussex Stakes win aboard Frankel, is also still in the race despite drawing a blank yesterday.

            The four main protagonists for the RUK Leading Jockey Award are in action once again today with Hughes and Moore in particular fancied to add to their tallies.

            Hughes will be disappointed if the Richard Hannon-trained Harbour Watch, unbeaten in two starts, fails to present him with victory in the Group Two Tanqueray Richmond Stakes (3.45pm), while Cai Shen has strong claims for the same stable in the totesport Mile (3.10pm). Hughes is the only one of the top four with a mount in the Rothschild Waddesdon Wines Nursery (4.20pm) in which he partners top-weight Lord Ofthe Shadows for Hannon.

            His remaining mounts today are Vanguard Dreams in the RSA Thoroughbred Stakes  (2.35pm) and Memory, who has been reluctant to race this season, in the Oak Tree Stakes (4.50pm).

            Moore will be determined as ever to add to his haul. He partners last time winner Dever Dream in the Oak Tree Stakes and also has solid claims aboard the Hannon-trained Eureka in the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes, Confront for his boss Sir Michael Stoute in the totesport Mile and Quality Art for his father Gary Moore in the Turf Club Handicap (5.25pm). Nouriya will be more of shock winner in the Coutts Glorious Stakes but perhaps his best chance of success today is Group Three Jersey Stakes third Western Aristocrat in the RSA Thoroughbred Stakes.

            Dettori’s fractured toe means that he is limited to three rides today for his employer, Godolphin. Group One winner Campanologist drops down in grade for the Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes but needs to improve on what he has shown so far this season, while Neebras should be thereabouts in the RSA Thoroughbred Stakes judged on his fourth to Frankel in the Group One St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. The Italian also has a big chance in the day’s most competitive contest, the totesport Mile, in which he rides the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Man Of Action.

            Queally has three solid rides today including aboard Group Three John Porter Stakes winner Indian Days, who has a cracking record at Goodwood, in the Coutts Glorious Stakes. He will also be looking to the classy filly Chachamaidee to keep him in the hunt when she contests the Oak Tree Stakes, while Trade Storm is his mount in the RSA Thoroughbred Stakes.

            The latest odds from Bet365: 2/7 Hughes, 7/2 Moore, 20/1 Dettori, Queally


            Richard Hannon, who took last year’s leading trainer title with a remarkable nine wins, leads this year’s charge with four successes. He has eight runners today including Harbour Watch in the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes and three in the Rothschild Waddesdon Wines Nursery, Lord Ofthe Shadows, Glee and Mr Knightley.

            Sir Michael Stoute is second in the table with two wins and three second places, and his team of three features Nouriya, Confront and RSA Thoroughbred Stakes contender Tazahum.

            Mahmood Al Zarooni also has two wins but lies third on count back. Today, he relies on Neebras and totesport Mile contender Namecheck.

            Mark Johnston has one win to his name and the Middleham handler can never be discounted at Glorious Goodwood. He has some interesting runners today including Group One winner Jukebox Jury in the Coutts Glorious Stakes, Mabroor in the Rothschild Waddesdon Wines Nursery and Tanqueray Richmond Stakes runner Bannock.





            The £125,000 totesport Mile is the main betting heat of the day and Betfred, totesport’s new owner, reports plenty of support for favourite Green Destiny.

            The William Haggas-trained four-year-old is lightly-raced and heads into the mile contest after storming to an impressive victory in the 10-furlong John Smith’s Cup at York earlier this month. Punters are not put off by the return to a mile for the Marju colt and Betfred reports that Haggas’ charge has shortened into 5/2 favourite from 7/2. 

            Betfred has also seen support for the Andrew Balding-trained Highland Knight with his price contracting to 14/1 from 16/1.

            Other firms have seen backing for the favourite this morning with William Hill shortening into 5/2 from 100/30, Paddy Power offering 5/2 from 11/4 and Sky Bet also shortening to 5/2 from 3/1.

            Paddy Power has also taken money for the Pricewise horse, Proponent, into 14/1 from 18/1, a move matched by Sky Bet and William Hill. The last-named has, like Betfred, tightened Highland Knight into 14/1 from 16/1. 

            Looking at the rest of the card, Betfred reports early money for Tazahum, flagged up in the Pricewise column as one to side with in the Listed RSA Thoroughbred Stakes. The firm is offering 9/2 from 11/2. Meanwhile, in the concluding Turf Club Handicap, Betfred has shortened the Tom Dascombe-trained Ballista into 10/1 from 20/1.

            Newspaper coverage reviewing yesterday’s splendid Ladies Day at Glorious Goodwood was really all about Frankie, the charity ladies race and the future plans for Frankel.

            The Daily Telegraph gets the plaudits today for giving its front-page picture to the ladies race winner, model Edie Campbell wearing her racing colours, with a caption link to a report on page 4, and to the newspaper’s sports pages.

            Page 4 provided a full colour picture story featuring Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox weighing out and putting on her crash hat ahead of the ladies race, Campbell winning the contest, alongside a pictures of Courtney Love with Goodwood Racecourse Chairman Lord March, and a smaller picture of female racegoers.

            The female and fashion line continued on the sports’ pages under the “Goodwood Diary” by Bryony Gordon, who was “suffering from a “slightly fuzzy head” after the Goodwood Raceweek Ball. A half-page opposite was devoted to J.A McGrath discussing the Dettori/Opinion Poll winning the Artemis Goodwood Cup story, with a further half given over to Jonathan Liew at Goodwood in which the ladies race was reviewed in detail

            Campbell also made her way onto the Richard Kay’s Daily Mail diary page - her mother, Vogue fashion editor Sophie Hicks, having backed her daughter to win £1,000. “I don’t gamble, but it was a one-off occasion,” she said, “... I am so ecstatic.” Kay called the race, the “high spot” of Ladies Day at the West Sussex track.

            The Guardian featured a picture of rock star Courtney Love enjoying a day at the races under the header “Summer Love rocker goes racing” on page 15. Unfortunately, there was no caption link to the sports’ pages, though the picture was run alongside a story on David Beckham’s new clothing brand.

            The paper’s racing pages ran a Greg Wood story regarding Frankel’s likely participation at the QIPCO British Champions Day under a picture of the great horse in the winner’s enclosure after the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, along with a story on the media darling that is Dettori, his win aboard Opinion Poll and his inability to provide the crowd with a flying dismount.

            “Footsore Dettori” was also the header for Chris McGrath’s story in The Independent, although the opening paragraph, while claiming that the staying horses of this year are a fairly “anonymous bunch”, reported that the Goodwood Cup provided the finish of the week. The picture caption did mention that Dettori did pick up a whip ban in the race.

            His story went on to discuss trainers David Lanigan’s and Kevin Ryan’s winners before rounding off with Frankel’s projected target. The media love a superstar horse.

            A superb half-page picture of Opinion Poll led The Times review, Alan Lee discussing how the jockey’s victory provided the perfect follow up to the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, claiming that “the one-a-year festival-goers relate more naturally to the extrovert that is Dettori”.

            It was a Frankie and Frankel double-header for the Daily Mirror, David Yates looking two years’ down the line at plans for Sir Henry Cecil’s horse and a possible Breeders’ Cup challenge. The Dettori story was much the same, before Yates rounded off with the ladies race and Annette Lynton-Mason’s fall before telling his readers who actually won

            The Sun did not give a review too much space (quarter page). Predictably the picture and Claude Duval story focused on Dettori under the header “No Poll Vault”. The Daily Express ran a similar short quarter-page story and picture.Tony  Lewis for the Daily Star provided a Dettori story and a Masamah look-ahead to the Nunthorpe.

            The News, based in Portsmouth, did fashion in the most detail, giving a double-page spread to feature some of the local ladies who had dressed for the day, with a full-page picture of the Best Dressed Lady winner under the header “Looking Glorious”.

            Dettori led the newspaper’s racing review, but a small pull-out paragraph was included to mention that four Hampshire cricketers had taken a day off from training to go to the races.




            The Blue Square Stewards’ Cup consolation race, the Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup Handicap, run for those horses who fail to make the cut for the 28-runner sprint itself, is being staged for the first time on the Saturday of Glorious Goodwood, historically having always been run on the Friday of the meeting. It is the first race on Saturday’s card and is due off at 2.05pm.

            “This may cause punters to hold their stakes until they have seen the consolation race,” says Alan Alger of Blue Square, the race sponsors. “However, we might see something of a red herring develop.

            “The speed for the consolation race appears to have been drawn down the two sides, while in the big race itself the speed is in the middle. The first race might send punters looking for horses drawn wide if a low or high number wins, which might not transpire at all in the main race.

            “If such a low or high drawn horse does win the consolation, we won’t overreact with our prices as the ground has been very fair all week and we have not seen any bias.”

And with the draw changes made by the BHA earlier this year, the stalls positions have been reversed, Goodwood being a right-handed track. Alger does not see this as something to confuse punters.

            “The various form guides have all got the new stalls positions in place, so I don’t think it will be a problem,” he says.

            There has been continued support through the week for the top two in the betting - Hoof It and Mac’s Power. The sponsors have cut Hoof It, the race favourite from 8s to 6/1 after the draw in which he landed stall 18, while Mac’s Power has been drawn in stall 1.

            Alger reported that there has been money through the week for Edinburgh Knight who has come in from 16s to 11/1, while last year’s winner Evens And Odds has already been popular and is a 20/1 chance.

            The company has a number of special bets, including 7/2 Dandy Nicholls to train the winner of the race. Nicholls, who has won the race three times including last year, has six runners in this year’s renewal.

            There are also bets on the stalls position of the winner: 9/4 for the successful horse to be drawn stall 1-9 inclusive, 11/8 for it to come from stalls 10-19 inclusive, and 7/4 for stall 20 or higher.

            Sir Henry Cecil believes Midday is a better horse this year as she attempts to win the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood for a third successive season.

            Now a five-year-old, the daughter of Oasis Dream has won five times at the highest level but arrives in Sussex on the back of a rare lacklustre run in Ireland, when she had no answer to Aidan O'Brien's Misty For Me in the Pretty Polly Stakes.

            Cecil would have had no qualms about running her in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes against the colts last weekend but, with Workforce already representing owner Khalid Abdulla he decided to wait until this weekend.

            "The Nassau this year is going to be a very tough race, but I think she would actually have run well in the King George on Saturday if she'd run," said Cecil.

            "The pace would have suited her as she has got a turn of foot and I think there would have been a good chance at her best that she'd have been in the mix.

            "We couldn't run her against the colt (Workforce). It would have been stupid to run the two of them.

            "I don't know what happened in Ireland, something went wrong. She was in very good order, but the filly of Aidan O'Brien's just scooted away.

            "I hope it was a one-off as she's working well and I think she's better this year than last year. We'll see whether she can make up for things (in Ireland) this week."

            Abdulla's racing manager Lord Grimthorpe was also perplexed about Midday's run at the Curragh but hopes a return to Goodwood will see her bounce back to her best.

            "Midday ran a super race at Epsom (in the Coronation Cup). I don't know about the Curragh, she was certainly beaten by a very decent filly that day but we were slightly scratching our heads as we expected her to run better," said Grimthorpe.

            "But we're going in with the same mindset as we did when she went to the Curragh - we're very confident. She has come out of the Pretty Polly brilliantly and had a nice bit of work on Tuesday.

            “She obviously thrives at Goodwood. Last year she quickened twice, which is quite rare in a Group One race."

            Cecil also runs Principal Role, in the same Abdulla ownership, who will be ridden by Richard Hughes, with Midday again set to be partnered by Tom Queally.

            The Ed Dunlop-trained Snow Fairy was one of the success stories of last season. Having been beaten in a nursery off a mark of 90 as a two-year-old, she won the English and Irish Oaks before travelling to the Far East to claim the QEII Cup in Japan and the Hong Kong Cup.

            Ryan Moore was on board for all four of those wins but has been claimed by Sir Michael Stoute to ride Crystal Capella, but in Frankie Dettori she will not be wanting for anything in the saddle.

            "Snow Fairy has come on a lot for her run in the Eclipse at Sandown, where she just got tired after such a long absence," the Newmarket handler told www.edunlop.com

            "She blew for 45 minutes afterwards, but she worked fantastic on Tuesday morning under Ryan Moore and though it is disappointing that he cannot ride, we are lucky to have Frankie.

            "He has not ridden the filly before, but she is straightforward and while it is a very hot race, we are going there to win and the ground will be perfect."

            Patrick Cooper, racing manager to owner Cristina Patino, also believes she has plenty in her favour.

            He said: "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."

            Misty For Me may only be a three-year-old, but already has four Group Ones to her name. Having won two top-level races as a juvenile, she has since added the Irish 1,000 Guineas and Pretty Polly this term.

            She has, however, disappointed on her two previous visits to England, in the Guineas at Newmarket and in the Oaks.

            Big-race jockey Seamie Heffernan believes she simply failed to handle the unique Epsom track in the Oaks and is confident of another bold show.

            "She won fairly well at the Curragh. The conditions suited her that day and she won very well," said Heffernan.

            “We all hope that she's in something like the same form again. I think she just didn't handle the track at Epsom. Aidan said after the Oaks that it just didn't suit her - it happens a lot.

            “She's a winner of four Group Ones already so anything she does now is a bonus. She seems to be in good form at home, she's working very well, and I'm looking forward to riding her. It's great to keep the ride."






NEXT RACE:                



A top class, seven-strong field is set to contest this fillies & mares race over 1¼ miles, including last year’s winner Midday, representing the leading QIPCO British Champions Series trainer/jockey combination of Sir Henry Cecil and Tom Queally, last season's star filly Snow Fairy and the strongly-fancied Irish raider Misty For Me.
