GLORIOUS GOODWOOD, FIFTH DAY

RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE

SATURDAY, JULY 30, 2011

 

WATERWORTH WISHES MOORE SPEEDY RECOVERY

 

Goodwood managing director Adam Waterworth wished former champion jockey Ryan Moore a speedy recovery after his fall from Verdant resulted in a broken humerus bone and thumb.

 

Moore was rushed to hospital after the spill which took place on an incident-packed final day of Glorious Goodwood 2011.

 

Tim Jarvis, son of trainer Alan, was also taken to hospital after being knocked over by a loose horse and Jamie Spencer was also stood down later in the day after being unshipped in the Moore incident.

 

Those incidents contrasted sharply with the sunny weather, packed grandstands and top-quality racing which included wins for top-weight Hoof It in the Blue Square Stewards' Cup and a record-breaking third Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes for Sir Henry Cecil's Midday.

 

Waterworth said: "On the whole it has been a fantastic day and we have seen some wonderful racing with Midday and Hoof It winning.

 

"The weather has been great today and the crowd figure of 23,706 (21,602 in 2010) is very good.

 

"We did have two incidents and of course we would rather not have incidents like that. I do wish Ryan a speedy recovery. I hope the injury is not as bad as it seems and that he is back in the saddle soon. I also hope Tim Jarvis is fine after being struck into.

 

"The week as a whole has been great and we have seen some amazing racing.”

RYAN MOORE SUFFERS DOUBLE BREAK

 

Ryan Moore was a casualty of an incident in the Toyo Tires Summer Handicap that saw his mount Verdant clip heels and fall. The rider has suffered injuries that, according to the Goodwood Racecourse doctor, could keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the season.

 

A statement from Goodwood Racecourse said: “Ryan Moore has broken the humerus bone in his upper arm and has also suffered a broken thumb. He was taken to St Richard’s Chichester Hospital where he is receiving treatment.”

RICHARD HUGHES WINS THE RACING UK LEADING JOCKEY AWARD

 

For the second year in succession, Richard Hughes has ridden more winners than any other jockey at Glorious Goodwood and picks up the Racing UK Leading Jockey Award.

 

Hughes has ridden five winners at this year’s meeting (compared to a record-breaking nine in 2010), finished second twice and third on three rides. His winners include the impressive juvenile Harbour Watch, who won the Group Two Tanqueray Richmond Stakes and is now favourite for next year’s 2000 Guineas, the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes winner Chandlery and the Group Three bet365 Lennox Stakes winner Strong Suit.

 

Frankie Dettori finished second with four winners, while Tom Queally was third. He also rode four winners but had fewer placed horses than Dettori in his tally. Kieren Fallon had three winners, while Ryan Moore, George Baker and David Probert had two apiece.

 

Hughes wins a lifetime subscription to Racing UK, a £1,000 donation to a charity of his choice and a deluxe Goodwood hamper.

 

Hughes led the way right from the start of the week after kicking home two winners on Tuesday. “It’s been another incredible week, and I think the highlight was Harbour Watch as there was a lot expected of him and he certainly delivered,” he said.

 

Racing UK’s commercial director Nick Mills said: “We were delighted to sponsor the Glorious Goodwood Leading Jockey Award for a second year running and it was great to see Richard win it again as he’s such a fantastic ambassador for the sport.”

 

All of Hughes’s winners were for trainer Richard Hannon, who finished up as the leading trainer at Glorious Goodwood with five winners. Sir Henry Cecil, who won the two Group One races this week - the QIPCO Sussex Stakes with Frankel and today’s Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes with Midday -  won three races, as did fellow Newmarket-based trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni.

Seventh Race Win Quotes

Telegraph Apprentice Handicap

 

O’NEILL RIDES TO THE MAX ON ALBAQAA

 

PJ O’Gorman and Kieran O’Neill each landed their first taste of Glorious Goodwood success when Albaqaa came from last to first to clinch the concluding Telegraph Apprentice Handicap.

 

Albaqaa was dropped to the rear from his unfavourable 16 draw and gradually crept up on the outside of the field as the front-runners began to wilt with three furlongs to race, having set a searching gallop. O’Neill, one of the apprentice finds of the season, urged his mount to the lead inside the final quarter-mile and, after edging across towards the far rail, pushed the six-year-old out for a two-length verdict over 14/1 shot Night Lily.

 

The 10/1 shot is owned by the Riding To The Max syndicate.

 

O’Gorman, who is in his fifth season with a trainers’ licence, said: “I had a few horses previously, mainly  working with problem horses and others that people didn’t want or wouldn’t train. I was lucky enough to have Max (part owner) here and a friend of mine called Andy Cheshire who put together a syndicate of friends and got half a dozen horses, and that set me up; generally with older horses that have done well previously but had dropped down the handicap, and we have rejuvenated them.

 

“I am very pleased with the horse and very pleased for the owners. The four races he had won before, only one of those was off a higher rating.

 

“I think the way the race went suited him down to the ground. I have only had one runner here before and I was surprised how downhill it is all the way.” 

 

O’Gorman praised O’Neill, apprenticed to Richard Hannon, for whom this was his 29th win of the campaign.

 

The trainer commented: “He gave him a great ride. Harry Bentley was meant to ride the horse but was required to ride his boss’s horse and Kieran was a great substitute.”

Race Six - Best Western Horses Help Heroes Nursery

WINNER AND PLACED QUOTE

 

 

BAYLEYF BEST UNDER BAKER

 

Bayleyf struck first time in handicap company as John Best saddled him to victory in the Best Western Horses Help Heroes Nursery.

 

The colt had enjoyed four previous starts and followed up his seventh-placed effort at Royal Ascot by winning in maiden company at Epsom last time out.

 

The youngster, sent off at 10/1, followed up that effort under George Baker as he dug deep in the closing stages to deny a gamble on 5/1 favourite Es Que Love by two lengths.

 

Best said: "He wasn't at his best at Royal Ascot but I was impressed with him today as he looked like he was going to be caught but picked up when George got after him and he was pulling clear again at the finish.

 

"He was impressive last time at Epsom but I didn't know what to make of it as it didn't look the greatest of races and the ground was soft.

 

"He is better on quick ground and I am thrilled with that performance.

 

"I don't think he will be with us for that long as I am sure offers will come in for him. If someone wants to buy him then we will sell.

 

"I think he will improve with age and if we do keep him then we will have to look at Listed level as he has won here off 87 and will go up again."

 

Mark Johnston, trainer of the runner-up, Es Que Love, said: "He has run a solid race."

 

Safari Storm took third under Martin Dwyer, who said: "I'm pleased with him. He's a nice horse and he ran a solid race."

NAWWAAR TO STEP UP IN CLASS TO PATTERN COMPANY AFTER MAIDEN SUCCESS

 

The Overtones EBF ‘Schiaparelli’ Maiden

 

Despite meeting trouble in running wherever he went through the field, Nawwaar got up to win the Overtones EBF ‘Schiaparelli’ Maiden over seven furlongs for trainer John Dunlop and owner Hamdan Al Maktoum.

 

“Richard [Hills] got off and said that Nawwaar met everything that Goodwood has to throw at him and he still prevailed,” said Dunlop after the race. “He did get badly hampered on the inside and stopped again so he has done very well to win it.

 

“But he is a very nice horse, he is a good looker and very straightforward at home - a charmer.

 

“He ran very well at Ascot first time, was just drawn very wide, and I thought it would be nice to come and see if he could win at Goodwood.

 

“I don’t have any plans for him, but I will be stepping him up in class to Pattern company next time. On pedigree and on his looks, he looks like a sprinter but he got the seven furlongs well, otherwise he wouldn’t have won.

 

“He is a nice horse and he was a bit unlucky at Ascot, when he was drawn on the outside and wasn’t beaten far.”

 

Nawwaah holds early entries in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes, the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes, the Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes and he is also in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes and the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes.

 

 

Race Five - Overtones 'Schiaparelli' Maiden

PLACED QUOTES

 

 

GRANDEUR MAKES GRAND DEBUT

 

 

Jeremy Noseda's Grandeur made an eye-catching debut when finishing a game second in the Overtones 'Schiaparelli' Maiden.

 

Chris Catlin replaced the injured Ryan Moore and his mount flew from the rear to just fail by a head to score at the first time of asking.

 

The grey son of Verglas is owned by Yvonne Jacques who has eight horses in training with Noseda in addition to others with Sir Henry Cecil, Richard Hannon and Marco Botti.

 

Miss Jacques said: "That was very good for his first time out and I am thrilled.

 

"He nearly managed to do it and he did come from a long way back so I am thrilled with him.

 

"I think he will be better over a longer distance than this seven furlongs and he will also be a better horse next year."

initial winning quotes

Blue Square Stewards’ Cup

 

FALLON & CHANDLER PLEASED WITH HOOF IT

 

Kieren Fallon, the winning rider of 13/2 joint favourite and top-weight Hoof It, said: “Luckily Mick Easterby walked the track this morning and told me to go to the far side, which made my job easier.

 

“Hoof It will be a Group One horse one day.”

 

Chubby Chandler, the joint owner of Hoof It with Lee Westwood, commented: “Lee (Westwood) is not here - he is flying to America tomorrow because he’s got a job to do. He hasn’t won a major yet so he is concentrating on that and he’s probably got to get up at six in the morning. He’s already phoned me and he is very excited.

 

“I thought that Mick had entered him in the Nunthorpe but you never know with Mick - he could be entered in a donkey race next week with him.

 

“We will see what’s what and we would like to have a go at all sorts because Lee and myself travel a lot - Hong Kong, Paris or wherever - we would like to have a go at everything.

 

“We are very lucky. Mick got us into this with a bumper horse and he said that he thought this horse would be alright.

 

“Then he wanted to sell him at the end of last year and I said that all we would be trying to buy another Hoof It, so why bother selling him? So we made sure that he asked for too much and made sure that we kept him.

 

“We have a lot of fun - it’s our only pastime and it’s great fun.”

 

 

Fourth Race Win Quotes

Blue Square Stewards’ Cup

 

HOOF IT “WILL BE UNBEATABLE” DECLARES EASTERBY

 

            Hoof It became the first horse since the war to shoulder more than 9st 10lb to success in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup and in doing so ended trainer Mick Easterby’s long quest for victory in the six-furlong showpiece.

            Carrying top-weight of 10st, the 13/2 joint-favourite was drawn unfavourably in berth 18 of the 28 runners but was brilliantly ridden by Kieren Fallon to storm down the far rail for an impressive two and a half-length success.    

            Easterby said: “Everything went against him. He was badly drawn and we thought the ground was drying out too quick but he’s a very, very good horse. How did he do it? How did he get over there from that draw?

            “I bought him as a foal for £6,000, put him back in at Doncaster Sale and nobody came, so I bought him back for £14,000 - unbelievable isn’t it? I’ve tried to win this one for years and had never won it until now, I’m delighted, over the moon.”

            Easterby, along with fellow part-owners, golfer Lee Westwood and Chubby Chandler, are considering paying the £20,000 supplementary fee to ensure the strapping four-year-old Monsieur Bond gelding takes his place in the five-furlong Group One Nunthorpe Stakes at York next month.

            The North Yorkshire handler said: “I actually own a half share of him with Chubby and Lee, who have the other. I haven’t put him in the Nunthorpe.”

            Asked where Hoof It rates in comparison to Lochnager, winner of the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes in 1976, the trainer stated: “He’s better than Lochnager. He wants another year on his back and he’ll be unbeatable.”

 

            Kieren Fallon’s well-judged ride saw him add to his previous Blue Square Stewards’ Cup win aboard Gift Horse in 2005.

            He commented: “This horse travels for fun and stays well. I said to Mick, he’s a gentle giant and he’s unbelievable to ride.

            “He was carrying 2lb extra with the 2lb you get for the body protector so he was actually carrying 10st 2lb. It’s unbelievable but because he’s such a big, strong horse, he’s able to take that.

            “Originally I wanted to go down the middle - the pace was there and I was following two or three. They were leading the groups both sides and I was happy to follow them. I was getting to them too easy between the three and the two so I thought I’d better go and get the rail because I knew I was going to take it up sooner than I wanted and it’s always an advantage to have the rail. He didn’t have his spark at Ascot but if he had he probably wouldn’t be here today.

            “I have ridden a lot of good sprinters over the years and this lad at the moment ties in with them. He’s still a big baby and has a big future. He is going to get stronger and better as time goes on. He will be a Group One horse one day.”

 

 

TAX FREE ROLLS BACK THE YEARS

 

The Blue Square Stewards’ Cup

 

The nine-year-old Tax Free belied his years to finish a two and a half length second in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup. Mac’s Power, who was sent off the 13/2 joint-favourite with the race winner Hoof It, finished a head back in third.

 

“What can you say,” said Dandy Nicholls, the trainer of Tax Free and  nicknamed the “sprint king” for producing horses at their peak for races such as this. “He’s always the same this horse, him and the likes of Joseph Henry. He just keeps pulling it out. He is a nine-year-old and people say you should retire him, but when he goes and runs like that, how can you?!”

 

Nicholls trained last year’s winner of the Stewards’ Cup, Evens And Odds and has won the race three times. Tax Free finished third in the five-furlong Group 3 Audi Stakes at Goodwood in 2007 and won a Listed race at the course the previous year. This was the horse’s  48th career start. He has won 15 races and finished second or third on 15 occasions.

 

James Fanshawe, trainer of Mac’s Power, said: “He’s run very well. Whatever passage we have had through the race, I don’t think we could have beaten the winner.”

 

 

STEWARDS’ ENQUIRY: STEWARDS’ CUP

 

Pat Cosgrave, rider of Mac’s Power who finished third in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup, has been suspended for one day on Saturday, August 13 for careless riding. The stewards found that Mac’s Power interfered with Mon Cadeaux approaching the furlong marker.

 

Tajneed, trained by Dandy Nicholls, will not be able to run again until he passes a stalls test. As this is the second time in 12 months that the gelding has been reported, if he is reported a third time in the same period, Tajneed will be prevented from having a stalls’ test for six months.

QIPCO BRITISH CHAMPIONS SERIES UPDATE

BRILLIANT MIDDAY LANDS A NASSAU HAT-TRICK

GIVING CECIL AND QUEALLY THEIR FIFTH SERIES VICTORIES

 

Midday put up another fine performance to run out a comfortable winner of today's Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes on the final day of Glorious Goodwood, her third successive victory in the Group 1 fillies & mares contest.

 

The brilliant mare has now won six Group 1 races in her career and in the last three seasons has never finished out of the first three in 12 starts in Group/Grade One company.

 

Today's victory extends the leads held by her trainer, Sir Henry Cecil, and jockey, Tom Queally, at the top of the QIPCO British Champions Series leaderboards, with Cecil's standing in the table also boosted by saddling Principal Role to finish third in the race. 

 

Both now have five wins to their name and are two winners clear in their respective tables after a fantastic Goodwood which saw them win both Group 1 contests courtesy of Frankel in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes on Wednesday and Midday this afternoon.

Race Three - Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes

WINNER QUOTE

 

MIDDAY MAKES HISTORY

 

History was made on the final day of Glorious Goodwood 2011 as the Khalid Abdulla-owned Midday became the first filly or mare to win the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes for the third time.

 

Trained by Henry Cecil, who was winning the race for the eighth time, and ridden by Tom Queally, Midday had scored at the meeting for the last two years.

 

And she brought up the hat-trick as the 6/4 favourite by surging clear inside the final two furlongs to see off two-time Oaks winner Snow Fairy by two lengths.

 

Cecil said: "I am very pleased. Last year she became one of three to have won the race two times and now she has broken the record and won three.

 

"She has won six Group Ones in her career and been unlucky not win another two or three more. She is a marvellous mare.

 

"I didn't realise I had won this race eight times. The only thing I can tell you is that they weren't all in the last eight years!

 

"I don't know what happened when she got beat in Ireland last time but she was probably beaten by a very good filly.

 

"I am very happy and have had a great week. I have always liked Glorious Goodwood and get excited about staying down here for a night.

 

"If Midday is well then we will think about going to the Yorkshire Oaks and we will feel our way from there. All options are open including the Irish Champion Stakes and the Breeders' Cup again. The races are there for her and we will just feel our way and see how we go. She will tell me and I won't tell her - you don't tell women what to do.

 

"I have enjoyed this week. I have been shopping in The Lanes at Brighton, buying shirts and shoes and everything, and I nearly didn't get here because of the traffic.

 

"People keep saying that I am very good with fillies but I have been very lucky. Over the years I have trained for studs who have bred very nice fillies. Good colts and fillies make successful trainers and jockeys.

 

"If the horses are bad, I am a bad trainer whereas if you have good horses then everything is marvellous. It hurts but it is the truth - I know it myself."

 

Queally added: "I was sitting there and knew Frankie was lurking about somewhere on Snow Fairy and wanted to kick at the right time and didn't want to go too soon or too late.

 

"When I sent her about her office, I wanted her to stretch clear and not be like last year when she got to the front and she dossed.

 

"I gave her a smack or two just to set her about her job. I made her mind up and she knows what to do.

 

"She is the Queen of Goodwood now. She loves it here and she travelled very well. We started to get racing early but I was able to get her back on the bridle and give her a breather. Hopefully, it will be a good tonic for Teddy (Khalid Abdulla's racing manager Lord Grimthorpe who broke his right arm in a paddock fall earlier in the week) who has obviously got a bit of an injury.

 

"She is very special to me, Shane, and everybody in the yard. She is an absolute sweetheart and what a week it has been."

 

The Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes is part of the QIPCO British Champions Series.

 

 

Third Race Place Quotes

Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes

 

FAIRY AND CAPELLA HAVE YORK OPTION

 

Snow Fairy (5/2) found Midday two lengths superior when runner-up in the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes over just short of 10 furlongs but trainer Ed Dunlop believes there is more to come from last year’s Oaks winner.

 

The four-year-old landed four Group/Grade One contests in 2010 and has clearly come on for finishing fourth on her seasonal debut behind So You Think in the Group One Eclipse Stakes earlier this month.

 

Snow Fairy tracked Midday under Frankie Dettori but was unable to close on the winner, who kicked for home over two furlongs out off a slow pace.

 

Dunlop’s charge could now head to York for the Group One Yorkshire Oaks over a mile and a half next month.

 

The trainer said: “She’s in at York. We were obviously beaten by a better horse but it’s a huge improvement on her first run and Frankie said she will definitely improve again.

 

“She would have liked a stronger pace - she quickens very well off a fast pace and they went very slow early. We were getting back there and it’s a very good run.”

 

Fourth-placed Crystal Capella could also be heading to York for the same contest when the 12-furlong trip will be more to her liking. The six-year-old has a preference for ease in the ground and was caught for toe at the crucial juncture as Midday stormed for home.

 

Trainer Sir Michael Stoute commented: “She has run a blinder. We knew it was dicey but we can’t go in front with her - she has got to be relaxed so we knew it was going to be difficult. We thought long and hard about actually running her this morning because the ground was quick enough. If the ground is suitable we would love to go to York.”

 

 

NO PACE, SAYS JIMMY FORTUNE

 

The Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes 

 

Jimmy Fortune, rider of the fourth-placed finisher Crystal Capella, deputising for the injured Ryan Moore, said: “They hacked around, they went no pace. She is a mile and a half filly and wants softer ground.”

 

MIDDAY PRICED FOR BREEDERS’ CUP

AND THE PRIX DE L’ARC DE TRIOMPHE

 

William Hill has priced Midday at 2/1 for the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf, a race she won in 2009 and finished second in 2010.

 

Stan James have priced Midday at 3/1 (no change) for the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf and have her at 33/1 from 50/1 for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

 

Victor Chandler have put Midday in at 25/1 from 50/1 for the  Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

 

STEWARDS’ ENQUIRY INTO THE FIRST RACE

 

Jockey Nathan Alison has been suspended for six days after being found guilty of careless riding on ninth Seek The Fair Land. The stewards decided that Alison allowed his mount to hang right into the whip causing interference to Klynch, ridden by Tom Eaves, who in turn interfered with Gille Eoin, who then interfered with Secret Witness. Alison’s band runs from Saturday, August 13 to Thursday, August 18.

 

Jockey Steve Drowne has been suspended for three days after being found guilty of careless riding. He manoeuvred his mount Kingsgate Choice left-handed, which caused interference to Everymanforhimself, We Have A Dream and Quasi Congaree. Drowne’s suspension runs from Saturday, August 13 to Monday, August 15.

PETARA BAY WINS FOR BERNIE ECCLESTONE

 

The Toyo Tires Summer Handicap

winner quotes

 

In a dramatic running of the Toyo Tires Summer Handicap, Petara Bay, trained by Robert Mills and part-owned by Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone in whose colours he ran , won gamely by a neck.

 

“A two-mile trip really is his optimum,” said the winning trainer, “but I was more concerned about the ground here. It was perfect at the beginning of the week, but it was not changing in our favour.

 

“This horse is a half-brother to Nathaniel - he has the most fantastic pedigree, but he has been plagued by injury. He was injured in the Derby and he has taken a lot of nursing by the lads in the yard.

 

“We have to treat him with kid gloves, but there is no doubting he has an engine.

 

“He has to come with a late run like that, he has to be ridden through a race to gain confidence, to come past horses and find his rhythm. Jim (Crowley) gave him a beautiful ride - there is no one better at getting a horse into a rhythm as he does.

 

“I am just delighted for the owners. My late Dad [Terry] loved this horse and my Mum has a half share in him with Mr Ecclestone who is away and very busy with his Formula 1 commitments, but I am sure he will be delighted when we tell him.”

 

Crowley commented: “I wasn’t aware of what had happened until I pulled up and the loose horses came by - I just hope that everybody is OK. I was on the outside so I was clear of it all and didn’t really see what happened.

 

“He is a horse who was held in high regard a few years ago. The handicapper has given him a chance now and Robert has done a fantastic job with him.

 

“He is very well bred and there are some others in his family apart from Nathaniel.”

 

Captain John Nixon broke down when in the lead soon after entering the straight and dropped back, with horses behind taking avoiding action. Verdant, with Ryan Moore up, clipped the heels of Sharaayeen, fell and brought down the Jamie Spencer-ridden Activate. Moore has been taken to St Richard’s, Chichester Hospital with a suspected shoulder injury.

 

 

 

Race Two - Toyo Tires Summer Handicap

PLACED QUOTES

 

DREAM FAR FROM OVER FOR ICON

 

Icon Dream continued his solid run in big-field handicaps when going down by a neck to Petara Bay in the Toyo Tires Summer Handicap.

 

David Simcock's four-year-old has been plying his trade in the most competitive of races this summer and put in one of his better performances to just be denied.

 

Simcock's pupil assistant Tom Clover said: "He has run a blinder and is a lovely horse to have.

 

"I am delighted for his owner Marwan Koukash and hopefully this horse has one of these races in him.

 

"He probably has been helped by what happened during the race but he has been running in competitive races all summer.

 

"He has dropped down to a mark of 95 and if he was to go down a couple of more pounds, which he won't do after that, then you really would be rubbing you hands about his chances and I can see why he was backed."

 

Sponsors Betfred clipped Icon Dream into 20/1 from 33s for the Ebor, with Paddy Power going 25/1 from the same price.

First Race Win Quotes

bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap

 

GUBBY’S CAT HAS THE LOWDOWN

 

            Son Of The Cat blazed down the far rail in the bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, the dress rehearsal for the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup, to give increased hope to those horses drawn low in the six-furlong showpiece later today.

            The five-year-old is owned and trained by Brian Gubby, for whom Goodwood holds many fond memories. The veteran handler, 77, raced around the famous Goodwood motor circuit in his days as a racing driver and has previously seen his colours carried to victory at the racecourse thanks to old favourites such as Omaha City.

            Son Of The Cat burst from the three stall and was always prominent. Franny Norton took his mount to the far rail and the gelding quickened to lead inside the final quarter-mile before storming home for a length and three quarters triumph from Confessional, who had tacked across

from his 16 draw under Silvestre De Sousa.

            Gubby commented: “Franny and I felt they would come up the middle so that was the plan, to keep as straight as we could.

            “He won as a two-year-old here and then he came back and finished second. He’s a genuine little horse but I was hoping to run him in a race to get him in the Stewards’ Cup the other day but he got cast in his box and blew his leg up - that was at Epsom. I desperately wanted to get him into the big race.

            “Don’t get me wrong, I’m over the moon. That was where we were heading but the consolation prize is absolutely wonderful.

            “I have four horses and two youngsters for next year. I’m retired now so I take it considerably easier now.  I have arthritis but I’m totally enjoying it. Omaha City won four or five here and was a lovely horse. It’;s been a lucky course for me - I’ve had quite a few winners for a small yard.

            “I put him in a Listed the other day at Windsor and put the blinkers on him thinking that would pull out a little more out and I should have had 19lb off the winner and he was beaten four and three quarter lengths. The winner, Bated Breath, broke the track record and went on to be third in the July Cup.”

 

            Norton said: “I had been listening to all that has been going on and they were saying that it was a lot quicker on far side. In actual fact, it felt like good ground to me but I had the horse on the day.”

            “To be fair, Mr Gubby half-fancied him a little bit because he ran well in a Listed contest last time under Neil Callan, when he had the blinkers on and ran too free.

            “It was all a matter of which side they were going to be and where it was all going to happen. I was lucky enough to be taken into the race really well but then I just had to commit him a bit early because the door was about to close but he stuck to his guns really well.

            “He has won well in the end. I was half-thinking that I might have messed it up by setting off so early by he showed a lot of guts and determination and made it worthwhile.”

 

 

 

PLACED HORSES COME DOWN THE FAR RAIL FROM MIDDLE DRAW

 

The bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap

Placed quotes

 

The connections of the second and third in the bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, the consolation race for the Stewards’ Cup, confirmed that the plan for both horses (drawn 16 and 17) was to track over towards the far side rail, where the ground has been reported to be faster.

 

Terry Holdcroft, owner of Confessional, who carried top-weight into second spot from stall 16, said: “We are very pleased with that and the plan had been to go over to the far side.

 

“He was second over five furlongs at this meeting last year, Silvestre (De Sousa) said he got the six-furlong trip well here which helps to open options up for him. He just has to have fast ground and he has been unlucky on a number of occasions this year. We went to Ireland last time, and when he left to travel it was good to firm, by the time he raced the ground had turned to a bog.”

 

Richard Fahey, trainer of the third Valery Borzov, said: “We are very pleased with this horse. He is better on a softer surface than this.”

FRANKEL DAZZLES DURING A GLORIOUS WEEK

 

            Glorious Goodwood 2011 will forever be associated with Frankel’s incredible domination of the QIPCO Sussex Stakes.

            Billed as the “Duel on the Downs”, the mile championship contest was supposed to be a thrilling face-off between the world’s best pair of milers but evolved into an exhibition of devastating power, phenomenal pace and supreme poise as Frankel’s relentless stride left Canford Cliffs toiling in his wake.

            Sir Henry Cecil’s Classic hero took his tally to seven wins without defeat and prompted his trainer to state: "It’s a marvellous day and he is a very, very good horse. I think Frankel is the best that I have ever seen. Looking through, Blushing Groom was a miler who really used to impress me and Shergar - I can’t go further back because I wasn’t alive but Tudor Minstrel and the days of matches. I wouldn’t know but he is one of the best horses that I have ever seen."

            Trainer Richard Hannon was flummoxed in the wake of Canford Cliffs’ defeat but is keen to take on the winner again. The four-year-old had been seeking a sixth straight Group One triumph but was unable to unleash his usual burst of acceleration and drifted left in the closing stages.

            That reversal aside, Hannon and jockey Richard Hughes have had a typically profitable Glorious Goodwood with five winners each and sit atop the leading trainer and jockey standings, respectively.

            The pair teamed up on the opening day to take the Group Two bet365 Lennox Stakes with the horse that could be Canford Cliffs’ successor, Strong Suit. Further wins have followed with Moustache, Casual Glimpse and a pair of exciting juveniles that prompted hopes of Classic success for the yard in 2012. First up, Chandlery took the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes in fine style on Wednesday but Harbour Watch is the colt seen as Hannon’s new great hope after the two-year-old stormed to success in Friday’s Group Two Tanqueray Richmond Stakes.

            Next year’s Classics seem a long way off but the St Leger, the final Classic of 2011, is only six weeks away and Mark Johnston has a strong contender on his hands in the shape of the improving Namibian. The colt had landed the two-mile Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot but displayed speed to match his stamina when taking the Group Three bet365 Gordon Stakes over 12 furlongs here on Tuesday.

            Frankie Dettori stole the limelight for 45 minutes or so on Thursday with a crowd-pleasing big-race double. The Godolphin rider drove Opinion Poll to a narrow victory in the Group Two Artemis Goodwood Cup for trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni and, a little over half an hour later, guided Meeznah to a smooth triumph in the Group Three I-Shares Fillies’ Stakes for David Lanigan.

            The week’s sole overseas success so far came on Tuesday when David Wachman unleashed a smart two-year-old from Ireland in the Group Three bet365 Molecomb Stakes. Requinto put in a commanding performance to land the five-furlong sprint.

            Speaking of sprinters, the Kevin Ryan-trained Masamah continued his progress up through the ranks with a victory in Thursday’s Group Two Audi King George Stakes over the same distance.

            Every race is a highlight at Glorious Goodwood but other notable victories came for the Luca Cumani-trained Drunken Sailor, who could be Melbourne Cup-bound after taking Friday’s Group Three Coutts Glorious Stakes, the Henry Cecil-trained Chachamaidee in the same day’s Group Three Oak Tree Stakes and Boom And Bust’s welcome success under Hayley Turner for trainer Marcus Tregoning in yesterday’s totesport Mile. The admirable Hollins gave trainer Micky Hammond his biggest win on the Flat when taking the week’s longest race, the historic Goodwood Handicap.

 

 

WATERWORTH HAILS GLORIOUS GOODWOOD ATMOSPHERE

 

            Adam Waterworth took over as Managing Director at Goodwood Racecourse upon the retirement of Rod Fabricius at the end of last season and the new man is enjoying his first Glorious Goodwood at the helm.

            With Frankel’s win fresh in the mind, Waterworth said: “It has been brilliant and I have thoroughly enjoyed the week so far. This is my first Glorious Goodwood as Managing Director and although I enjoyed it when I was here last year, it was always going to be a bit different with the pressure that comes now that I have taken on the role.

            “It has been a really successful week. Crowd figures are great but, in some respects more importantly than that, the atmosphere has been brilliant.

            “Wednesday was obviously a highlight. I thought the atmosphere that day - the way the crowd were and how the racing panned out - that is a day that I won’t ever forget. It is almost as if that day has lifted the entire week; that carried into Thursday and then on the back of that, yesterday was a really lovely atmosphere.

            “The racing has been brilliant with really close finishes and some great performances from Frankel to Harbour Watch, so hopefully the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes today will live up to that.”

            Waterworth pinpoints Frankel’s breathtaking win in the “Duel on the Downs” as being the week’s seminal moment.

            He commented: “I think the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, as the highlight of the week and coming quite early on, really set the meeting up and it has maintained that level in terms of atmosphere and the general good feeling about the place. It is brilliant that we have managed to carry that through the week.

            “We still have one day to go so I don’t want to count my chickens. This is a really important day and the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes looks like being a fantastic race too. It is almost disappointing that the Nassau Stakes has been overshadowed by the QIPCO Sussex Stakes because this looks like being one of the best renewals we have had in a long time.

            “It’s a shame that Aidan O’Brien’s filly (Misty For Me) has come out and I’m not going to pretend it wouldn’t have been a better race with her in but to have Snow Fairy and Midday in the race is tremendous.

            “Snow Fairy has the local links with Mrs Patino who has long been associated with the John Dunlop stable at Arundel and of course the filly won here last year before going on to do what we all know she did.

            “And Midday, well how often do horses come back for a third? If she was able to win, I would like to think that the reception she will get could even challenge Frankel’s. If she can win three it would be remarkable. Whichever filly wins, she will get an appreciative reception. 

            “The Blue Square Stewards’ Cup is probably the most iconic race of the whole week so we still have a little bit to do today but hopefully we will enjoy a great day and then, from my point of view, we can put it to bed as having gone as well I could ever have hoped.”

            Waterworth feels that the small tweaks he and his team have made this year have been positive developments.

            He said: “There will be a review process afterwards, as there is for any meeting, and there will be things that we have done wrong and things that we could have done better but I think on the whole, most of the things we have introduced this year have worked. Things like the post-racing entertainment and keeping the bars open later seems to have worked very well and has helped to ease congestion with so much traffic leaving.

            “We removed a lot of the fencing around our bar areas to allow racegoers to move more freely and that seems to have helped the crowd mechanic and the general atmosphere. I certainly think there are more positives to come out of this week than anything else.

            “Last year was the first time I had been here for all five days and people were saying that it was the best Glorious Goodwood they could remember for a long time but my feeling is that this week has at least matched last year.

            “It is not going to be every year that we are going to attract the best horse in the world and it is not going to be every year that we will have the sort of clash that focused attention on this week, and so to have that in my first year, I was very lucky. Many racing people have reminded me that it will all be downhill from here!

MAC'S HAS THE POWER

 

Glorious Goodwood draws to a close for another year and the Racing Post use their front page to preview the fifth and final day of the meeting, with their main headline focusing on tipsters Tom Segal and Gerald Delamere who both select Mac's Power in the Blue Square Stewards' Cup.

The other feature contest is the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes and the Daily Star's racing pullout majors on the Group One contest with columnist Jamie Spencer predicting that Midday can win the race for the third year and cap a superb week for Sir Henry Cecil and Tom Queally.

The baby-faced rider also tips Kevin Ryan's Tiddliwinks in the Stewards' Cup with Mark "The Couch" Winstanley fancying Spencer's mount Colonel Mac to win the six-furling dash.

Mac's Power is also the selection of The Sun's Templegate, with the paper's pullout displaying a picture of a beaming Hayley Turner after the Group One-winning rider landed her first Glorious Goodwood success aboard Boom And Bust in yesterday's £125,000 totesport Mile.

Inside the paper and Claude Duval has penned a feature on Stewards' Cup favourite Hoof It after the horse won at York last weekend and the racing even makes it on to the news pages.

Singer turned actress Billy Piper graced the Downs yesterday and she is pictured on page four of The Sun, six of The Saturday Telegraph and 19 of The Daily Mirror sporting ridiculously high heels.

Newsboy of The Mirror selects High Standing and Midday for the Stewards' Cup and Nassau Stakes respectively, but the latter is opposed by columnist Frankie Dettori who believes his mount Snow Fairy can provide him with a third victory in the race.

The Telegraph's Jim McGrath predicts that "the forecast is good for Snow" in previewing the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes, while his colleague Marcus Armytage writes "Hayley Turner's pay cheque for this month was already looking pretty chunky after her July Cup victory but she added substantially to it when she won at Goodwood on the Marcus Tregoning-trained Boom And Bust".

Alan Lee in The Times is another to focus on Turner's success in his review of yesterday's action while The Independent's Chris McGrath looks further back to Wednesday and Frankel's imperious success in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes.

McGrath argues that Frankel should be sent to this year's Breeders' Cup Classic, stating that "his pace, balance and stride have long suggested that Frankel would be sensational on dirt".

In reflecting on yesterday's racing, Greg Wood in The Guardian leads off on Tanqueray Richmond Stakes winner Harbour View who received quotes of just 6/1 for next year's QIPCO 2000 Guineas after providing Richard Hannon with his fifth winner of the week.

The paper's Will Hayler preview's today's racing and predicts that Snow Fairy will add a touch of magic to the Nassau Stakes.

Snow Fairy is also the selection of The Daily Mail's Sam Turner and he predicts that she "should have been brought to the boil courtesy of a much-needed outing in the Eclipse at Sandown last time behind So You Think and Workforce".

The local daily, The News, also wrote about both Harbour View and Hayley Turner with Rob Atkins penning that "Tuner's smile lit up the winner's enclosure as she celebrated her maiden winner at Glorious Goodwood yesterday".

 

HUGHES AND HANNON HARD TO CATCH

 

Richard Hughes and Richard Hannon are likely to repeat their victories of 12 months ago by again being confirmed as Racing UK leading jockey and leading trainer respectively at Glorious Goodwood 2011.

Hughes ended last year with nine victories and while theoretically possible again, he would have to ride four winners from his five mounts this afternoon to match the feat.

Hughes leads the standings with five wins and two second placings this week, with his highlights likely to have been Strong Suit's silky-smooth success in the bet365 Lennox Stakes on Tuesday and Harbour Watch's impressive victory in the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes yesterday.

 

Frankie Dettori lies second in the Racing UK Leading Jockey standings and has four rides this afternoon, while Tom Queally (three wins) and Ryan Moore (two wins) each have six mounts.

Dettori and Queally ride the two leading contenders in the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes and are aboard Snow Fairy and Midday respectively, and it would be hard to imagine one of the pair not scoring there. Dettori has a live chance aboard Sports Section in the Overtones 'Schiaparelli' Maiden and could mount a challenge to Hughes if both of those two score.

Richard Hannon has had five winners and four seconds during the week and should again be crowned leading trainer - with an army of eight runners this afternoon.

Sport's Section's trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni is his nearest pursuer with three winners but that handler only has the one runner here today.

 

EARLY BLUE SQUARE MORNING MOVES

 

Stewards’ Cup sponsor Blue Square reports an early morning move for the David Barron-trained Colonel Mak (in from 16s to 14/1) in today’s big sprint which is due off at 3.45pm. Second last time out over six furlongs at Hamilton, Colonel Mak, winner of the Ayr Silver Cup last September, is drawn in stall 21 and carries 8st 11lb. Jamie Spencer rides.

 

There has been continued support for the top two in the betting, Hoof It and Mac’s Power, with the latter being well-backed as this morning’s Pricewise horse in the Racing Post.

 

“It looks as though he (Mac’s Power) will be challenging for favouritism,” says Alan Alger of Blue Square, “which did not look likely yesterday.”

 

Of the longer-priced runners, Alger reports that Blue Square has seen money for the Dr Marwan Koukash-owned and Richard Fahey-trained Brave Prospector, who has come in from 40/1 to 33/1.  He is drawn in stall 8, is ridden by Paul Hanagan and carries 9st 3lb.

 

MONEY FOR MIDDAY IN THE NASSAU

 

Aside from its feature race on today’s card, Blue Square reports money for Golden Desert in the opening bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap. The Robert Mills-trained horse, who ran here on Wednesday finishing fourth in the seven-furlong Harwoods EBF “Hellvelyn” Handicap, has come in from 10/1 to 9/1. He is drawn in stall 4. In the same race, the firm has also seen moves for the Ron Harris-trained Secret Witness (33/1 to 25/1).

 

In the Stewards’ Sprint, Sky Bet has shortened Dubai Media to 14/1 from 16/1, while in the big race itself High Standing, from the in-form William Haggas yard and ridden by Ryan Moore, has come in from 25s to 20/1.

 

In the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes, Blue Square has seen early money for Sir Henry Cecil’s Midday (13/8 from 7/4), who is bidding for a third consecutive victory in the race.

 

Sky Bet also reports money for Midday and the firm has brought her price in from 13/8 to 6/4, while it has eased fellow Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes runner, the Ed Dunlop-trained Snow Fairy, to 15/8 from 7/4. 

 

In the supporting card, money for Captain John Nixon in the Toyos Tires Summer Handicap (2.35pm) has seen Sky Bet shorten his price to 7/1 from 8/1, a move replicated by Stan James, while the Jeremy Noseda-trained debutant Grandeur, who runs in the Overtones EBF “Schiaparelli” Maiden (4.20), has been cut by Sky Bet from 25/1 to 20/1. In the final race of Glorious Goodwood 2011, The Telegraph Apprentice Handicap (5.35), there has been early support for the Paul Cole-trained Moynahan (14/1 to 12/1).

 

The Paddy Power offices have also been taking money for Moynahan (12/1 to 9/1), while in the Stewards’ Cup  the bookmaker has seen support for Colonel Mak (16/1 to 12/1) and Brave Prospector (40/1 to 25/1). In the second race,  the Toyos Tires Summer Handicap (2.35), Paddy Power has brought Sharaayeen into 6/1 from 7/1 and in the opener Mymumsaysimthebest is now a 10/1 shot from 12/1 with the bookmaker.

 

Stan James reports money for the same horses in the Stewards’ Cup: Colonel Mak (10/1 from 18/1), Brave Prospector (20s from 40/1) and it has also moved the second favourite, Mac’s Power, into 15/2 from 10/1. In the consolation race, Paddy Power has shortened four - Joseph Henry (20/1 from 25/1), Dubai Media (14/1 from 20/1), Novellan Lad (16/1 from 18/1) and Noverre To Go (16/1 from 22/1).

 

HUGHES 1/5 TO BE TOP JOCKEY

 

Ahead of racing on the last day of Glorious Goodwood, Victor Chandler prices Richard Hughes at 1/5 to be the Racing UK leading jockey for the second year in succession. Hughes is currently on five winners, one ahead of Frankie Dettori.

 

Dettori is 7/1 with Victor Chandler to take the title, Tom Queally, who has ridden three winners, is 12/1, while Ryan Moore on two winners is 20/1.

.

Chandler also goes 9/1 Thunderball (from 12/1) in the opening bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap (2.05), and Colonel Mak 10/1 from 20/1 in the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup (3.45).

 

William Hill has Colonel Mak at 11/1 from 16/1 and has moved Mac’s Power into 8/1 from 10/1. In the consolation race, the bluesquare.com Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, William Hill has reported support for Dubai Media (18/1 from 25/1) and Noverre To Go (16/1 from 22/1). In the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes (3.10), William Hill has Midday in from 7/4 to 13/8.

 

In the second race on the card, the Toyo Tires Summer Handicap (2.35), William Hill has brought Harlestone Times into 5/1 from 7/1 and Activate in a point from 8/1 to 7/1.

 

In the later races, Niceofyoutotellme (4.20) has come into 4/1 from 6/1, Es Que Love (4.55) is into 9/1 from 10/1 and in the last race of the meeting, The Telegraph Apprentice Handicap (5.35), William Hill has brought Truism into 13/2 from 7/1 and Moynahan to 9/1 from 12/1.
