GRAND ARCADE LADIES DAY, THURSDAY, JULY 7

 

DELEGATOR TOPS 17 DARLEY JULY CUP DECLARATIONS

 

Duke Of York Stakes winner Delegator heads 17 runners for the Darley July Cup following the final 48-hour declaration stage.

 

Godolphin's five-year-old skipped an engagement at Royal Ascot due to the soft ground and is due to make his second appearance of the season under Frankie Dettori as trainer Saeed bin Suroor chases his first Darley July Cup success.

 

The six-furlong Group One contest, which forms parts of the QIPCO British Champions' Series and Global Sprint Challenge, has attracted an international field in recent years and 2011 is no exception with Amico Fritz representing France, War Artist making the journey from Germany, Oracle hailing from Aidan O'Brien's Irish yard and Star Witness running for Australia.

 

The Steven Arnold-ridden Star Witness will be having his third British outing, having twice made the frame at Royal Ascot with his second and third place finishes respectively in the King's Stand Stakes and Golden Jubilee Stakes.

 

Roger Charlton is double-handed with Genki and Bated Breath while champion trainer Richard Hannon is another to field a pair of runners in Golden Jubilee Stakes second Monsieur Chevalier and Libranno.

 

Dream Ahead was last season's joint top-ranked juvenile and will make his second start of the year should trainer David Simcock rule the ground to be suitable after his three-year-old make a pleasing reappearance when fifth behind Frankel in the St James's Palace Stakes.

 

Dalghar, Hitchens, Jimmy Styles, Regal Parade, Winker Watson, Swiss Diva and Elzaam, who was an eye-catching fourth in the Golden Jubilee Stakes, complete the field.

 

 

QUEALLY BACK IN THE SADDLE

 

Tom Queally returns to race-riding at Newmarket this afternoon after sitting out Wednesday's action with a bruised rib.

 

Sir Henry Cecil's stable jockey picked up the injury at Haydock last weekend, and after riding at Pontefract on Tuesday, he decided to give himself 24 hours rest ahead of the July meeting.

 

The Irishman has his first ride in the opening Bahrain Trophy aboard Solar Sky and will also partner Glencadam Gold in the sportingbet.com Handicap.

 

Queally's agent, Tony Elves, said: "Tom bruised a rib when the saddle slipped on Vita Nova in the Lancashire Oaks at Haydock on Saturday but I spoke to him this morning and he is 100% fine.

 

"He couldn't breath quite right at Pontefract on Tuesday so had a day off but he is back riding today. He has two rides for Sir Henry Cecil this afternoon and is then off to York tomorrow where he has been booked for four rides."

 

 

MIJHAAR THE MAIN MARKET MOVER

 

Roger Varian has made a stellar start to his training career and the Newmarket handler's Mijhaar is proving to be the best-backed horse of the day in the sportingbet.com Handicap.

 

Michael Jarvis's former assistant has had three winners from four runners on the July course this summer and Mijhaar now tops the market at 9/4 with totesport, Coral and Stan James.

 

The Racing Post's Pricewise column has selected Luca Cumani's duo of Fulgur and Afsare and the pair have proved popular with punters. Coral have trimmed Fulgur into 6/1 from 10s for the sportingbet.com Handicap - a move mirrored by totesport who offer the same price while Stan James are slightly shorter at 11/2. Jeremy Noseda runs Club Oceanic in the same race and he is 8/1 from 9s with Stan James.

 

Afsare, who contests the Princess of Wales's sportingbet.com Stakes, is into 4/1 from 5/1 with Stan James and Coral have clipped Kieren Fallon's mount to the same price.

 

Redwood has not been seen since chasing home subsequent Prince Of Wales's winner Rewilding in the Dubai Sheema Classic in March, and last year's runner-up in the Princess Of Wales's Stakes is into 11/4 from 3/1 with totesport to go one place better.

 

Totesport also report support for Frederick Engels in the TNT July Stakes as the Windsor Castle Stakes winner bids to supplement his Royal Ascot success. The colt is now 2/1 from 9/4 for the six-furlong Group Two contest.

 

The Wigan bookmakers have also seen good support for Five Star Junior, who is into 9/2 from 7s for the concluding Three Chimneys Handicap.

 

 

GOING NOW GOOD

 

Following five millimetres of rain this morning, the going on the July Course at Newmarket was changed at noon to:

 

GOOD

Michael Prosser, Newmarket’s Clerk of the Course and Director of Racing, commented: “We had more rain this morning in a 20-minute period than we thought we would have all day and clearly that has had an impact on the ground. There is a chance of further showers this afternoon and it will be very breezy, with a swirling wind.

 

“The July Course is free-draining but it will take time after the rain this morning.

 

“With some sunshine and breeze, we can dry out very quickly. We will ask the jockeys after the first for their reaction, but at the moment good ground is where we are at.”

FIRST RACE - WINNING QUOTE

Bahrain Trophy

 

MARVEL BOUND FOR LEGER

 

Masked Marvel staked his claim for the Ladbrokes St Leger with a head success in the Bahrain Trophy.

 

The Group Three event has proved a fair trial for the final Classic of the season in recent years with 2009 winner Kite Wood taking second at Doncaster while last year's winner Corsica was third on Town Moor.

class=Section3>

 

Masked Marvel, trained by John Gosden and ridden by Jimmy Fortune, committed for home with a mile left to run, and after staying on strongly on meeting the rising ground, the Montjeu colt had a head left over Census passing the judge.

 

Masked Marvel, who had landed a Listed event at Goodwood prior to taking eighth in the Investec Derby, was given a 16/1 quote by the sponsors, Stan James and Paddy Power for the Ladbrokes St Leger.

 

Gosden said: "He ran a nice race at Goodwood and Mr Nielsen was keen to run in the Derby but he simply did not handle the track at Epsom, which not many of them do. But he has come here in good order.

 

"I told Jimmy that if nothing wanted to go on then he should take the lead. It's the great thing about Jimmy and he just decided to go on.

 

"Jimmy said that in the final furlong that the horse was looking at the stands and the tents and was pulling himself up.

                       

"I like the way he went about it and he was staying on at the end so it will be straight to the St Leger now.

 

"There is the Voltigeur and Gordon Stakes before then. There is no point carrying a penalty in the Gordon Stakes and you can have a hard race in the Great Voltigeur, which can be quite close sometimes. He has done plenty this season so we will keep him fresh and go straight to Doncaster."

 

Fortune added: "He is a lovely horse. I didn't want to make it but they were crawling so I ended up having to and he was just getting a bit lonely in the last furlong. He got the trip and he is a lovely big horse.

 

"The ground is probably just on the slow side."

 

 

Race 1 - Bahrain Trophy (Group Three) - Placed Quotes

 

RUNNER-UP CENSUS HAS “LEGER WRITTEN ALL OVER HIM”

 

The members of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing’s Beeswing Syndicate were left wondering what might have been when the fast-finishing Census went down by a head in the opening Group Three Bahrain Trophy over a mile and five furlongs.

 

Partnered by Ryan Moore, the Cacique colt took a while to find his stride and was doing all his best work in the final half-furlong.

 

Today’s effort from Census, who is trained by Richard Hannon, has now left connections seriously considering a shot at the final Classic of the season, the Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster on September 10.

 

Harry Herbert, managing director of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, said: “Census wants a strong even pace and there was no pace today. Ryan (Moore) said he ran a hell of a race when you consider it was a slow, muddly pace which didn’t suit him.

 

“He is still a bit green and just hung left a furlong and a half from home when he was asked to quicken, which I think may have cost him the race.

 

“We will now have to seriously consider the St Leger for him. I think he has Leger written all over him. I don’t know if we will look for something beforehand, but the St Leger definitely has to be the plan this season.

 

“Looking further ahead, he could hopefully make up into a lovely Cup horse next year for the syndicate members.”

 

 Paddy Power go 16/1 (from 20/1) about Census for the St Leger, while Stan James are also now 16/1 (from 33/1).

 

GOING AFTER THE FIRST RACE

 

Jimmy Fortune, rider of the 2/1 joint favourite and winner Masked Marvel, said: “Maybe just on the slow side of good.”

 

Ryan Moore, rider of the second and joint favourite Census, said: “Good.”

 

Hugh Bowman, rider of third Zain Al Boldan, said: “Good.”

 

Louis-Phillippe Beuzelin, on board Crimson Knight, said: “They are certainly getting their toe into the ground.”

 

Neil Callan, jockey of Hurricane Higgins, said: “It is getting into the ground.”

 

Tom Queally, partner of Solar Sky, said: “It was on the quick side for my fellow.”

Race 2 - TNT July Stakes (Group Two) - Winning Quotes

 

BROWN THINKS THE BEST IS YET TO COME FROM FREDERICK ENGELS

 

Frederick Engels was one of the best-backed horses of the week at Royal Ascot when he impressively landed the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes and today he made the successful transition to Pattern company when taking the Group Two TNT July Stakes in the hands of Eddie Ahern. This was also a first win over six furlongs for two-year-old son of Iceman, who was returned the 7/4 second favourite.

 

The Pearl Bloodstock-owned colt came to take up the running as the field entered the final furlong and ran on well to get the better of 6/4 favourite Roman Soldier by a length.

 

Successful trainer David Brown said: “I didn’t like to say so, but I expected him to win today.

 

“I was confident in a way - you don’t like to be but he worked this week with a good horse and we felt you would have to run to 125 to beat him today.

 

“We wanted Eddie to sit on him as long as he could. He will probably get further because he has so much class over five and six furlongs - trust me, he will go further.

 

“He still had a bit up his sleeve today and I think there is still a long way to go with this horse.

 

“We will probably go for the Gimcrack Stakes now but I need to talk to the owners before deciding. He could also go for the Phoenix Stakes in Ireland or the Prix Morny.  Basically, he is entered in everything. I think the Gimcrack is probably the most likely option, but I will have a talk with the owners.

 

“I thought he was an outstanding foal when I saw him and he is also a May foal, so the best should be yet to come.

 

“We have arranged a poker party in the house tonight!”

 

Winning owner Sheikh Fahad added: “That was superb. Eddie did a great job with the ride and David Brown as well training him. He was waiting for the openings and was travelling very powerfully today, even more than at Ascot. We are glad to have a horse of this calibre.

 

“We will have to wait and think about where we go next and there are no immediate races for him now. The Gimcrack is in our mind but having to give the speech - is that a positive or a negative?”

 

SECOND RACE  - PLACED QUOTES

TNT July Stakes

 

NO EXCUSES FROM BEATEN CONNECTIONS

 

Roman Soldier followed up his second-place finish at Royal Ascot by chasing home Frederick Engels in the TNT July Stakes.

 

Ryan Moore had the 6/4 favourite up with the pace throughout, but the Coventry Stakes runner-up found his market rival a length too strong.

 

Trainer Jeremy Noseda said: "He ran very well and I am delighted.

 

"It was a good, solid performance but he has just met one too good on the day."

 

Just a neck behind Roman Soldier was Mark Johnston's Bannock, who stepped up on his Norfolk Stakes sixth under Silvestre de Sousa.

 

The colt was having his sixth career start and racing over six furlongs for the first time, but had no trouble with the trip and took third place.

 

Johnston said: "He has ran a very good race and was coming back again at the end.

                       

"Although he has plenty of experience Silvestre said he was still green and looking around, but he stuck on well.

 

"You can't take anything away from the winner - he was very impressive."

THIRD RACE - WINNER QUOTES

FALLON FANTASTIC ON FULGUR

 

Fulgur benefitted from the magic touch of Kieren Fallon to foil a gamble on Mijhaar in the sportingbet.com Handicap.

 

Luca Cumani's High Chaparral colt had beaten the 7/4 favourite in a maiden race last year but was adrift of that rival last time out at Royal Ascot.

 

Mijhaar looked to be cruising when hitting the front inside the final two furlongs of the mile and a quarter contest, but Fallon came sweeping by aboard the well-backed 7/1 chance to nail the market leader by a length.

 

Labarinto was a further two and three-quarter lengths adrift in third with Mark Johnston's Malthouse taking fourth.

 

Cumani said: "That was great to watch as he has deserved to win a race - he has been knocking on the door.

 

"Fallon gave him a Fallon ride but I don't know what we will do next with him."

 

The trainer's wife, Sarah, added: "We bred him and have known him all along.

           

"We have always thought quite a bit of him but he needs things to go right in his races - which they have today."

 

Fallon added: "He is a horse that I have always liked but things didn't go his way at Ascot and he is a horse with a big future.

 

"You have to target races like the King Edward VII Stakes with these type of horses but it was too soft there with the rain.”

 

"There were some nice horses in that race and hopefully this was one of them and he can go on from here."

 

Race 3 - sportingbet.com Handicap - Placed Quotes

 

MIJHAAR PLEASES VARIAN

 

Mijhaar started 13/8 favourite for the £50,000 sportingbet.com Handicap on the back of a fine fourth in the Group Two King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, but had to settle for second place as he went down by a length to Fulgur in the 10-furlong contest.

 

However, trainer Roger Varian was far from despondent and the Shirocco colt is now set for a bit of a break.

 

The Newmarket trainer said: “Mijhaar has run a real good race today.

 

“He has given 7lb to the winner, who I know Luca (Cumani) thinks is a good horse and been beaten a length. They were clear of the rest.

 

“The race was run to suit the winner more than us. The horse has done absolutely nothing wrong today and although it is disappointing not to win, you can’t ask for more than that.

 

“I don’t know where he will go next. He has had two races quite close together now as Royal Ascot was only three weeks ago. We could maybe have a look at bringing him back for a race in August.”

Race 4 - Princess Of Wales’s sportingbet.com Handicap - Winning Quotes

 

CAPELLA HANDS STOUTE RECORD EIGHTH VICTORY IN PRINCESS OF WALES’S sportingbet.com STAKES

 

Crystal Capella handed trainer Sir Michael Stoute an amazing eighth victory in the Group Two Princess Of Wales’s sportingbet.com Stakes when taking the 2011 renewal of the mile and a half contest in the hands of Ryan Moore.

                                                                                                           

This was a third Group Two victory at Newmarket for the six-year-old Cape Cross mare, as she has twice been successful in the Group Two Pride Stakes (2008 and 2010) on the Rowley Mile.

 

Ryan Moore committed Crystal Capella, who is owned by Sir Evelyn De Rothschild, around a quarter of a mile from home and from then on, there was little doubt as to the result as she powered clear of her field. At the finish, her closest pursuer was 2/1 favourite Redwood but even he was eight lengths adrift.

 

Sir Michael Stoute said: “That was a terrific result. She is a good filly and, after she beat Dar Re Mi at York (in May 2009), she popped a splint and she did the same thing with us last year. It was pretty sporting that the owners decided to keep her in training at the age of six because there was still some petrol left in her.

 

“When she is spot on, like she was today, she is a very good filly. I would think that it was a career best from her. We have had to be patient with her, as she has had well-chronicled problems over the past couple of seasons. It was a brave decision by her owner to keep her in training as a six-year-old, so that makes today particularly pleasing.

 

“She had showed last time out that she is still as good as ever and I was happy to see the rain come down earlier today as good ground suits her ideally.”

 

The trainer was non-committal as to where Crystal Capella is likely to go next: “The Yorkshire Oaks could be a possibility, but she is well entered up everywhere. She has only just passed the post, so we are not in a rush to make a decision.”

Renee Robeson, sister of owner Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, said: “She is lovely and hopefully we have got a bit more time to go with her but she has done us proud.

 

“Michael really made the decision to keep her in training and Evelyn and myself went along with it - he was the one that thought she might come back and make good because the tactics in Hong Kong last year weren’t quite right. “

 

Stoute’s previous Princess of Wales’s sportingbet.com Stakes winners were Shardari (1986), Rock Hopper (1991), Saddlers’ Hall (1992), Little Rock (2000), Gamut (2005), Papal Bull (2007) and Doctor Fremantle (2009). He is now the most successful trainer in the race’s history.

REDWOOD TIRES INTO SECOND

 

Redwood filled the runner-up spot for the second year running in the Princess Of Wales's sportingbet.com Stakes.

 

Barry Hills' five-year-old had been off the track since chasing home Rewilding in the Dubai Sheema Classic in March, a rest period of 103 days.

 

And connections believe that may have taken its toll as the heavily-supported 2/1 favourite was given an eight-length beating by Crystal Capella, although he did pull six-lengths clear of third-placed Buthelezi.

 

Hills' son and assistant Charlie said: "It was a very good run but he had been off the track since Dubai in March and may have got a bit tired.

 

"With the weather being as it has we have not done that much work on the grass and it may have found him out.

 

"It is a long year and there will be plenty more opportunities for him. We don't have a plan but I would say he will race aboard again at some stage."

GROUP COMPANY BECKONS FOR HARBOUR

 

Harbour Watch is destined for a step up to Group company after brushing aside his four rivals in the Earl Of Euston EBF Conditions Stakes.

 

Richard Hannon's Acclamation colt won on his Salisbury debut 25 days earlier and followed up under Ryan Moore.

 

The 2/1 chance made smooth headway to take over the running inside the final two furlongs and eased past the post some four-and-a-half-lengths clear of 11/8 favourite Burwaaz.

 

Hannon's son and assistant Richard jnr said: "We will have a look at the Prix Morny at Deauville or the Gimcrack at York next.

 

"He is not just a two-year-old as he is a big and scopey horse.

 

"He got the trip well today and relaxes in his races. Seven furlongs will be no problem to him this year and he ought to get a mile in time too.

"He won very well and the runner-up had been fourth in the Coventry so he must be a pretty decent animal."

 

Moore added: "He has done all that has been asked of him and when I asked him to go he quickened up very smartly.

 

"He deserves to step up in class now."

Race 6 - Portland Place Properties Conditions Stakes - Winning Quotes

 

BRIDGEFIELD GETS OFF THE MARK FOR 2011

 

Godolphin’s Bridgefield registered his first victory of 2011 in the Portland Place Conditions Stakes over a mile.

 

The three-year-old son of Speightstown, who was partnered to victory by Derby-winning jockey Mickael Barzalona for trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni, was well in command as the field entered the final furlong and went on to score by a comfortable two and three-quarter lengths from Casual Glimpse.

 

Simon Crisford, racing manager for Godolphin, said: “That was really pleasing. Last time out at Ascot he needed the run and the large field didn’t really suit him.

 

“He was better suited by the small field today as we were able to drop him in.

 

“There are no specific plans for him as yet although he could possibly go for a Listed race at Goodwood at the end of the month.”

 

Looking ahead to Saturday’s Group One Darley July Cup, where Godolphin will be represented by Delegator, Crisford continued: “Everything is fine with Delegator and he has been working well.

 

“We will be happy to see the rain stay away. The ground as it is at the moment will be fine for him but we wouldn’t want to see any more rain.”

 

Richard Hannon Jr, assistant trainer to his father, said of the runner-up Casual Glimpse: “It was a super run, the best one he has put in for a while and he liked being held up.”

Three Chimneys Handicap

 

FIRST BRITISH SUCCESS FOR HARTNETT

 

James Hartnett had only sent out one runner in the UK prior to saddling Murura to victory in the concluding Three Chimneys Handicap.

 

The Irish trainer made an eye-catching jockey booking by engaging the services of Investec Derby-winning rider Mickael Barzalona, who executed a fine ride aboard the 12/1 chance to score by three-quarters of a length.

 

Hartnett has led a colourful life which has even seen him open Irish bars in America, but he now operates as salaried trainer to Mark Gittins.

 

The trainer said: "Shimmering Moment won a Listed race for me at Dundalk last November but this is only really my first season so I am delighted to come to the July meeting and have a winner.

 

"I have got to thank the lads for letting me come here. He ran over seven furlongs at Leoparsdtown last month and we thought about coming here after that.

           

"I wanted to save the blinkers for the big day so he wore them for the first time today and that was a hell of a performance - a stiff five furlongs suits him down to the ground.

 

"I don't know where we will go next and I need to talk to the owners, but he is in the sales here at Newmarket tomorrow as lot 704."

CROWD UP SIX PER CENT

 

The crowd today, Grand Arcade Ladies Day, came to 16,623.

 

This represents an increase of six per cent on the figure for Ladies Day last year, which was on the second day of the July Festival.

 

Newmarket’s managing director Stephen Wallis was delighted to see an increase in the crowd on Grand Arcade Ladies Day.

 

Wallis said: “It was fantastic news to see an increase in the crowd on Grand Arcade Ladies Day.

 

“The image I will take from today is that everyone was still smiling at 11.30am when the rain was pouring down. It was heartening to see the crowd being so stoic in the face of typical British summer weather.”

The going remains GOOD at the conclusion of day one of the 2011 Piper-Heidsieck July Festival.

 

Michael Prosser, Newmarket’s Clerk of the Course and Director of Racing, commented: “We had 5.5 millimetres of rain in total today and finished with lovely weather at the end of the day.

 

“Today we started out with a forecast of a 70 per cent chance of showers. That falls to a prediction of 50 per cent tomorrow, with a total of two to four millimetres the current forecast.

 

“There is less chance of rain on Saturday, with any showers we do receive predicted to come later in the afternoon. Both tomorrow and Saturday are expected to reach 21 degress Celsius.

 

“The south-westerly breeze we have experienced today will continue tomorrow but should drop away on Saturday.

 

“Overall, the forecast is for progressively better weather, with both the likelihood and intensity of rain diminishing as the week goes on.”
