GLORIOUS GOODWOOD 2012
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
FIRST DAY, TUESDAY, JULY 31
GOING UPDATE AFTER FIRST DAY’S RACING
Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course Seamus Buckley was delighted with feedback from the first day of Glorious Goodwood and is expecting similar conditions for Wednesday’s racing.
He said: “It’s been a very successful day and I’m delighted with the way things have gone. The trainers and the jockeys are happy and say that the course rode extremely well.
“We won’t be doing anything out of the ordinary before racing tomorrow apart from getting the course all walked back and levelled. We’re hopeful of another dry day tomorrow following a dry night so it looks like we’ll still be racing on good ground tomorrow.”
Today’s provisional crowd figure is just over 13,000. Goodwood racecourse is still confirming the final number which will be available in the morning. This compares with 13,345 in 2011 and 13,058 in 2010.
Managing Director Adam Waterworth said: “The final crowd figure for day one will probably be very similar to last year’s attendance, which is very pleasing in Olympic year.”

THE WORLD’S BEST HORSE FRANKEL RACES AT GOODWOOD IN THE QUIPCO SUSSEX STAKES FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1
FRANKEL (GB) FACTFILE
4 b c Galileo (IRE) - Kind (IRE) (Danehill (USA))
Form: 1111/11111-11 Owner: Khalid Abdulla Trainer: Sir Henry Cecil
Jockey: Tom Queally Breeder: Juddmonte Farms Ltd Born: February 11, 2008
In 11 racecourse appearances, the unbeaten Frankel has more than proved a fitting tribute to the legendary US trainer Bobby Frankel, who provided owner/breeder Khalid Abdulla with a host of big-race victories in America until his death from cancer at the age of 68 in November, 2009. The home-bred son of Galileo is three-parts brother to 2010 Lingfield Derby Trial winner Bullet Train, a five-year-old who acts as his pacemaker these days, and full-brother to three-year-old Noble Mission, a runner in the Group Three bet365 Gordon Stakes on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood. Frankel made an eye-catching winning debut when readily scoring in a mile maiden on Newmarket’s July Course on August 13, 2010, as he beat subsequent Group One King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes victor Nathaniel by half a length. He built on that promising start when quickening clear of two rivals for a bloodless 13-length victory in a seven-furlong conditions race at Doncaster's St Leger meeting on September 10 that year. The manner of his win saw Frankel propelled towards the head of the ante-post markets for both the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas and the Investec Derby and he showed himself as a juvenile of uncommon ability with a stunning success in the Group Two Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes over a mile at Ascot on September 25. Not content with the sedate pace, Tom Queally took up the running entering the straight and Frankel accelerated away from the field with ease to gain an almost effortless 10-length triumph over Klammer. His trainer then suggested that Frankel was the finest juvenile to have passed through his hands since Wollow in 1975 (who subsequently went on to win the 2,000 Guineas). Frankel's final start of 2010 came at Newmarket on October 16 in the Group One Dubai Dewhurst Stakes. A strong line-up for the seven-furlong event also included dual Group One winner Dream Ahead and impressive Group Two victor Saamidd. Held up at the rear of the field, Frankel began to make smooth progress with three furlongs remaining, and led before the furlong-pole defeating Roderic O'Connor by two and a quarter lengths in good style. The runner-up strongly endorsed the form when winning a Group One in France afterwards. Frankel was the joint champion two-year-old in Europe on official ratings with Dream Ahead - rated 126. Frankel reappeared in 2011 in the seven-furlong Group Three Greenham Stakes at Newbury on April 16, when he went to the front passing the three-furlong marker to record a comfortable four-length success over subsequent French Group One winner Excelebration. He started the shortest-priced favourite in the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas since Apalachee, third at 4/9 in 1974, going off at 1/2. He galloped his opponents into submission and was over 10 lengths clear before halfway, winning most impressively by six lengths from Dubawi Gold with the field strung out. After this stunning performance, he headed to Royal Ascot for the Group One St James’s Palace Stakes, also over a mile, on June 14 and extended his unbeaten run. But the victory was not delivered in the manner expected by his legion of admirers. Queally sent the colt to the lead with well over three furlongs remaining and Frankel was six lengths clear with a quarter of a mile to run. After such an explosive mid-race burst however, his speed decreased markedly inside the final furlong, allowing the fast closing Zoffany to get within three quarters of a length at the line. Frankel took on older rivals for the first time in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on July 27, with his main opposition set to come from five-time Group One winner Canford Cliffs in a race billed as the ‘Duel on the Downs’. In reality the mile contest looked distinctly one-sided as Frankel made the running before powering clear nearing the final furlong for an imperious five-length success. Connections briefly toyed with the idea of stepping Frankel up to a mile and a quarter for either the Juddmonte International or the QIPCO British Champions Stakes before going for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Sponsored by QIPCO on QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot, October 15, when he cruised to a four-length victory over Excelebration. The World Thoroughbred Rankings for 2011 handed Frankel a rating of 136, 4lb clear of the outstanding Australian sprinter Black Caviar, making him officially the best horse in the world. He began the current season at Newbury on May 19, when he sauntered to a facile five-length victory over his old rival Excelebration. Despite that deficit being the biggest in four meetings with Excelebration, Sir Henry Cecil was expecting a sharper performance at Royal Ascot and the four-year-old did not disappoint. Frankel faced 10 rivals including Excelebration in the Group One Queen Anne Stakes over the straight mile - the opening race of the meeting - and produced a performance of the highest quality, routing the field for an emphatic 11-length victory. In the aftermath of the performance, Timeform gave Frankel a rating of 147, the highest in the organistation’s 64-year history. The British Horseracing Authority increased Frankel’s rating to140, 1lb behind Khalid Abdulla’s oustanding 1986 Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe winner Dancing Brave, while the World Thoroughbred Rankings Frankel is 10lb clear of the next best performer, Black Caviar, also on 140. Frankel has started favourite in all his races and, bar his debut, went off at odds-on. Tom Queally has ridden Frankel every time he has run. Frankel is heading for the Group One QIPCO Sussex Stakes on the second day of Glorious Goodwood 2012, Wednesday, August 1, having won the mile race easily last year.
Race Record: Starts: 11; 1st: 11; 2nd:-; 3rd:-; Win & Place Prize Money: £1,670,437
Prince Khalid Abdulla(h), who prefers to be known as plain Mr K Abdulla on the racecard, is a first cousin to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. He owns extensive racing and breeding interests in America, Britain, France and Ireland. He is a semi-retired businessman who, along with his four sons, presides over a huge conglomerate, the Mawarid Group, in Saudi Arabia and beyond. He developed a love for British racing during the 1960s when renting a house in London and, with the help of former trainer Humphrey Cottrill, had his first winner on May 14, 1979, when the Jeremy Tree-trained Charming Native scored at Windsor. Born in Taif, Saudi Arabia, in 1937, Abdulla has been one of the most successful owner-breeders in Europe over the past four decades and is the only current owner to have owned and bred the winners of all five British Classics. The first British Classic success came when Known Fact was awarded the 1980 2,000 Guineas on the disqualification of Nureyev. He has won the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas thrice more, thanks to Dancing Brave (1986), Zafonic (1993) and Frankel (2011) who promises to be best of them all, while in 1990 Quest For Fame gave him an initial Investec Derby triumph, followed by Commander In Chief in 1993 and Workforce in 2010. His only Ladbrokes St Leger victory came with the Andre Fabre-trained Toulon in 1991. Abdulla also races with great success in France, Ireland and the United States, where under the Juddmonte Farms banner he won a Triple Crown race in 2003 with Empire Maker in the Belmont Stakes. In 2003, Abdulla became champion owner in both Britain (78 winners) and France (58 winners), while he also finished third in the USA owners’ championship. The full-sisters out of Hasili, Banks Hill (2001) and Intercontinental (2005), gave Abdulla a notable pair of victories in the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf, a race he also annexed in 2009 with three-time Nassau Stakes (2009, 2010 & 2011) winner Midday. Hasili also produced the owner's dual Grade One winning mare Heat Haze, trained by the late Bobby Frankel. 2010 was a superb year and Abdulla finished it as champion owner in Britain (74 winners & prize money of over £3 million) for the second time, while Juddmonte was crowned the top breeder once again. Workforce won both the Investec Derby and Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in great style, while the unbeaten Frankel was crowned joint-champion European juvenile after victory in the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes. Special Duty also won two 2010 Classics in the stewards' room. In the QIPCO 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, she was promoted to first ahead of Jacqueline Quest after finishing a nose second and in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches, the filly was awarded first place after coming home the head runner-up to Liliside. Abdulla’s other 1,000 Guineas win came with Wince in 1999. Twice Over has also been a leading light over the past few seasons, taking the Emirates Airline Champion Stakes at Newmarket in 2009 and 2010 as well as the 2010 Coral-Eclipse and 2011 Juddmonte International. Frankel is probably Abdulla’s greatest horse ever and remains unbeaten in 11 races, seven of which have come at Group One level, including the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas, St James’s Palace Stakes, QIPCO Sussex Stakes, Queen Elizabeth II Stakes sponsored by QIPCO and the Queen Anne Stakes. Frankel’s exploits last year played a large part in Abdulla winning another owners’ championship in Britain in 2011 (63 wins and over £3.4 million in prize money). The owner’s Juddmonte breeding operation has nine properties in England, Ireland and Kentucky, including the 373-acre Banstead Manor Stud just outside Newmarket and the 2,500-acre Juddmonte Farms south of Lexington. Juddmonte Farms stand 10 stallions, including Oasis Dream and Dansili, as well as outstanding broodmares in Britain and the US including Hasili, Toussaud and Slightly Dangerous. Abdulla is an honorary member of the British Jockey Club and his daughter was married to the late Prince Fahd Salman, owner of 1991 Derby victor Generous. His notable horses have included the great Dancing Brave, narrowly beaten in the 1986 Derby but successful in the 2,000 Guineas, Eclipse, King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, plus Rainbow Quest, Warning, Danehill, Reams Of Verse, Rail Link, Zafonic, Oasis Dream, Chester House, Observatory, Xaar, All At Sea, Commander In Chief, Sanglamore, Ryafan, Exbourne, Marquetry, Raintrap, Sun Shack, Aptitude, Senure, Tates Creek, Cacique, Ventura and Proviso. Abdulla has over 300 broodmares and a similar number of horses in training. Lord Grimthorpe is his racing manager in Europe and Dr John Chandler oversees his US interests. He has won 10 Eclipse Awards in America as well as plenty of Cartier Racing Awards in Europe including the Award of Merit in 2002.
Sir Henry Cecil
Sir Henry Cecil, who was awarded a knighthood for services to racing in the Queen’s 2011 Birthday Honours List, has been Britain's champion trainer 10 times and is master of Warren Place Stables in Newmarket. Since taking out a licence in 1969, he has compiled a record of success that ranks him among the pantheon of training legends. He has won 36 European Classics, including 25 in Britain, collected over 400 Pattern successes and saddled well over 3,000 individual winners. He is also the most successful trainer at Royal Ascot, having won 75 races at the meeting. Henry Richard Amherst Cecil was born in Aberdeen on January 11, 1943, 10 minutes before his twin brother David, with whom he enjoyed a close bond. His father, Captain Henry Cecil of the Welsh Guards, brother of the third Baron Amherst of Hackney, was killed in action in North Africa some two weeks prior to the birth. Henry's widowed mother Rohays subsequently married royal trainer Sir Cecil Boyd-Rochfort and moved her brood of four boys to Freemason Lodge from the family farm near Newmarket. His formative years at Freemason Lodge stables, along with his brothers Bow, James, David and later Arthur, infused a desire to pursue a life in racing. This was undoubtedly detrimental to any potential academic distractions that may have robbed the sport of one of its most intuitive talents. In his book, On The Level, published in 1983, Cecil recalls at the age of seven being sent to prep school at Sunningdale where, with his twin David, he “went straight to the bottom form and stayed there”. He failed to get into Eton and spent the remainder of his school life at Canford School in Dorset, which he left with 10 O-Levels, before embarking on a high-spirited year at Cirencester's Royal Agricultural College, where he and David “studied drinking and gambling”, before leaving without sitting any exams. Henry was destined for a career in stud management until accepting the role of assistant to his step-father in 1964. Two years later he married Julie Murless, daughter of the great trainer Sir Noel Murless. Boyd-Rochfort, the man he called Uncle Cecil, retired at the end of the 1968 Flat season, at which point Henry took over the reins at Freemason Lodge. He did not exactly hit the ground running and it was two months before he sighted the winner's enclosure. His initial victory as a licensed trainer came on May 17, 1969, when Celestial Cloud was the short-head winner of an amateur riders’ event at Ripon. That success came after a piece of anxious advice from his then father-in-law. After watching the Cecil string work, Sir Noel Murless, never one to interfere, awkwardly declared: “Your horses are galloping like a lot of old gentlemen. You must make them work.” Henry gratefully heeded the advice and big-race glory soon followed with Wolver Hollow in the 1969 Eclipse. A move to Marriott Stables brought his first European Classic, courtesy of Cloonagh in the 1973 Irish 1,000 Guineas. Bolkonski's win in the 1975 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket set the ball rolling in Britain. Wollow's 2,000 Guineas victory a year later came in Henry's first season training at Warren Place, formerly the yard of his father-in-law, and heralded an era of success that has etched his name indelibly in the annals of racing greatness. As the 1980s dawned, the Henry Cecil legend took shape. Supported by Julie Cecil, head man Paddy Rudkin, travelling head man George Winsor and others, he reigned supreme. He ended the 1979 season as champion trainer with a 20th century record of 128 wins to his name. That was his third title in four seasons, in a year that saw One In A Million land the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket and Le Moss and Kris emerge as champions. The following decade brought five more training titles, while eight individual English Classic winners, including the Derby heroes Slip Anchor (1985) and Reference Point (1987), and the brilliant fillies' Triple Crown scorer Oh So Sharp (1985), were complemented by champions such as Ardross, Diesis, Indian Skimmer and Old Vic. In 1985, the year of Slip Anchor and Oh So Sharp, Henry became the first trainer in history to pass the £1-million mark in prize money. The 1987 season brought an even more phenomenal feat as Warren Place runners captured 180 races, smashing John Day's 1867 record of 146. Success continued throughout the next decade with a further clutch of Classic triumphs including four Oaks wins in five years with Lady Carla (1996), Reams Of Verse (1997), Ramruma (1999) and Love Divine (2000). He produced the brilliant Bosra Sham to be champion filly, nursing her fragile feet with the patience and care with which he is renowned, while enjoying two further successes in the Derby with Commander In Chief (1993) and Oath (1999). The latter's owner, the late Prince Ahmed Salman, summed up the feeling of many after Oath's triumph when he said, "winning Classics is easy. You just buy a horse and send it to Henry Cecil". The years have seen many of his owner-breeders pass away, while the loss of Sheikh Mohammed's patronage in 1995 was an undoubted blow. The numbers housed at Warren Place fell dramatically from a peak of near 200, so that by midway through the decade 2000 to 2010 Henry Cecil was no longer seen as a force in the contests that mattered. Owners deserted him, though notably Khalid Abdulla and the Niarchos Family remained loyal. The family standard, run up the flag pole after each Group One win, gathered dust for over six years after Beat Hollow's Grand Prix de Paris win in 2000. In 2006, however, a corner was turned as Multidimensional gave Henry his first Pattern success in four years. October of that year marked a return to the top table as the Khalid Abdulla-owned Passage Of Time captured the Group One Criterium de Saint-Cloud. Classic success made a welcome return to Warren Place in 2007 when Light Shift, owned by the Niarchos Family, clinched an emotional success in the Investec Oaks, while Midday went close to handing the stable a ninth victory in the premier fillies’ Classic when a close runner-up to Sariska in 2009. The Khalid Abdulla-owned filly subsequently proved a bona fide superstar, with an unprecedented three victories in the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood in 2009, 2010 and 2011 as well as the Yorkshire Oaks and Prix Vermeille in 2010. She also provided Henry with a first success at the Breeders' Cup when landing the 2009 Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita. Twice Over has also been a standard bearer for Warren Place over the past few seasons, taking the Emirates Airline Champion Stakes at Newmarket in 2009 and 2010 as well as the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown in 2010 and York’s Juddmonte International in 2011. The unbeaten Frankel is the latest superstar on the block, having won 11 races, seven of which have come at Group One level (the Dewhurst Stakes, the QIPCO 2000 Guineas, the St James’ Palace Stakes, the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes sponsored by QIPCO, the JLT Lockinge Stakes and the Queen Anne Stakes). He is rated the top horse in the world and Henry Cecil believes he is the best he has ever trained. As well as housing equine superstars, Warren Place was also the haunt of champion jockeys, with Joe Mercer, Lester Piggott, Steve Cauthen, Pat Eddery and later Kieren Fallon each doing their bit and enjoying the spoils of the master trainer's meticulously-planned campaigns. Nowadays, the talented young Irishman Tom Queally is the jockey proving his worth atop Cecil-trained contenders. The record books do not lie and Henry Cecil rewrote them as he cultivated and nurtured a string of champions. He is a trainer of great flair - a gifted horseman with an exceptional ability in assessing a horse, and possesses a rare instinctive genius that enables him to appreciate potential far earlier than most. He is also the focus of great fascination, particularly among the media - a champion trainer with a penchant for gardening and fine clothes. He has fought cancer over the last few years and married Jane McKeown, his third wife, in 2008.
Tom Queally, born on October 8, 1984, has come a long way since riding his first winner on the John Roche-trained Larifaari at Clonmel on April 13, 2000, when 15. He was crowned Ireland's champion apprentice the same season. From Dungarvan in County Waterford, where his father Declan combines farming with a small training operation, Tom was out hunting on his pony by the age of seven. After a spell showjumping, he was a leading figure on the pony racing circuit by the age of 13 and was apprenticed to trainer Pat Flynn two years later. The apprenticeship was terminated when Queally's parents insisted he finish his leaving certificate at school. At the end of a quiet 2002, when apprenticed to his father, he moved to Aidan O'Brien at Ballydoyle, winning the following year's Group Three Ballysax Stakes on Balestrini. With the help of owner/trainer Barney Curley, he moved to Britain in 2004 and joined David Loder's Newmarket stable, becoming British champion apprentice that year. He won the 2008 Group Three Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom aboard Lady Gloria and is now attached to Henry Cecil's Warren Place stable. Since his move to Cecil's yard, he has recorded significant victories on Midday, who finished runner-up in the 2009 Investec Oaks before going on to claim the Group One Nassau Stakes at Goodwood (2009, 2010 and 2011), the Darley Yorkshire Oaks (2010), Qatar Prix Vermeille (2010) and the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (2009). Twice Over has given him success in the Emirates Airline Champion Stakes (2009 and 2010), and the Coral-Eclipse Stakes (2010). In 2009, he also won two Group One sprints, partnering the Michael Bell-trained Art Connoisseur in Royal Ascot’s Golden Jubilee Stakes (Queally’s first top level win) and Fleeting Spirit, trained by Jeremy Noseda, in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket. He has partnered Frankel on all the colt’s 11 appearances, including Group One wins in the Darley Dewhurst Stakes (2010), QIPCO 2,000 Guineas (2011), St James’s Palace Stakes (2011), QIPCO Sussex Stakes (2011), Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (sponsored by QIPCO) (2011), JLT Lockinge Stakes (2012) and Queen Anne Stakes (2012).
ELECTROLYSER IN GOOD FORM AHEAD OF ARTEMIS GOODWOOD CUP ON THURSDAY
A total 10 runners have been declared for the £100,000 Group Two Artemis Goodwood Cup, run over two miles on the third day of Glorious Goodwood, Thursday, August 2, 2012.
The runners are headed by Godolphin’s Colour Vision, who will carry a 4lb penalty after his memorable Gold Cup success at Royal Ascot on June 21. He will clash again with John Oxx’s Saddler’s Rock, who was three-quarters of a length behind Saeed bin Suroor’s four-year-old when third at Ascot.
Godolphin will also be represented by last year’s runner-up Lost In The Moment, while Irish champion jump trainer Willie Mullins is sending over Simenon, who completed a rare double at Royal Ascot when winning the Ascot Handicap and the Queen Alexandra Stakes.
John Gosden will saddle the consistent Nehaam, who finished sixth in the Gold Cup, while Times Up will be looking to give local handler John Dunlop another big race victory after two Listed successes last year.
Askar Tau, a dual Group Two winner in 2010, will be looking to bounce back to his best for Lambourn handler Marcus Tregoning and Electrolyser will be seeking to return to the form that saw him finish a close second in the 2010 renewal.
His trainer Clive Cox said: “I am very happy with Electrolyser. He has been second in the Artemis Goodwood Cup before so he clearly acts on the track and any showers would be in his favour.
“He won nicely at Nottingham first time out this year but he is racing at a competitive level and this race is no different - it looks like a very hot race.
“It was a bit of tactical affair at Sandown last time and a few others just quickened up a bit smarter than him in the closing stages, but I’m happy he goes to Goodwood in good order.”
The field for the Artemis Goodwood Cup is completed by 2010 Cesarewitch Handicap winner Aaim To Prosper, representing Brian Meehan, and Andrew Balding’s Chiberta King.
Top-quality action at Goodwood on Thursday, August 2, also includes the £70,000 Group Two Audi Richmond Stakes (2.45pm) which has attracted eight runners including Listed winners Cay Verde and Master Of War plus Group Two July Stakes third Ahern.
The £55,000 Group Three iShares Fillies’ Stakes (3.45pm, 12 runners) has a quality field including The Queen’s Royal Ascot heroine Estimate, who was a comfortable winner of the Group Three Queen’s Vase on June 21. She will face stiff competition from Irish raider Midnight Soprano and Listed scorers Hazel Lavery and Hawaafez.
Also on Thursday’s card is the nine-furlong Betfred The Bonus King Handicap (2.15pm, 18 runners), the EBF British Stallion Studs New Ham Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (4.20pm, 20 runners), the Tatler Handicap (4.55pm, 16 runners) and the concluding Betfred Mobile Lotto Handicap (5.25pm, 16 runners).
Glorious Goodwood continues on Friday and Saturday, August 3 and 4.
It has been a lively morning in the Stoke headquarters of today’s sponsor bet365 with
a victory for bet365 Lennox Stakes favourite Chachamaidee currently the worst possible result.
“It’s been a very busy morning,” said bet365 spokesman Pat Cooney. “Although Michelangelo, who is 11/8 from 6/4 in the bet365 Gordon Stakes, has been very well backed, our worst result would currently be Chachamaidee, who is 13/8 from 7/4 for the bet365 Lennox Stakes.”

LACK OF GOLD CANNOT FADE GOODWOOD’S GLORIOUS CHARM
It was an odds-on certainty that racing’s abundant coverage in the British media would be squeezed during the Olympics, and that has been borne out on the first day of Glorious Goodwood.
Team GB may have stumbled from the Olympic stalls, prompting The Sun to proclaim on its front page ‘Wanted - Gold Medal. Any sport. We’re not bothered’, but London 2012 is currently the hub of British life and racing has to accept a lower media profile. If you expect to see a horse in the press on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood you will not be disappointed, but it will be an eventer called High Kingdom ridden by Zara Phillips, part of the British team gunning for gold today.
Writing in The Daily Telegraph Marcus Armytage addresses this subject, admitting ‘Racing might be feeling a little unloved at the moment’.
However, he suggests that a day on the Downs, not least when Frankel rocks up for tomorrow’s QIPCO Sussex Stakes, is an antidote for racing fans and those who are already jaded by Olympic hype. Armytage writes: ‘Whatever the allure of the Excel Centre it is nothing compared to the old-world charm of Lord March’s estate.’ Armytage also pens a ‘Day-by-day guide’ to the best of the week’s action in Sussex’s most sumptuous setting.
Racing’s most reliable ally, the Racing Post, carries plenty of Olympic coverage with a betting theme, but devotes its front page to ‘Day one of Glorious Goodwood’ and a headline that reads, ‘The Kings of Summer’, a tribute to trainer John Gosden and jockey William Buick, who hope to extend their purple run today.
Guardian readers expecting to survey the Glorious Goodwood card have to refer to the paper’s web-based online content, although the printed version does carry runners, riders and a form guide for the bet365 Gordon Stakes. Nor does it skimp on editorial coverage of the famous meeting by producing a meaty assessment of jockeys Richard Hughes and Ryan Moore and their unique capabilities on the famous racecourse. The Daily Express opts for the alternative by dropping racing editorial and form assessment, but publishing today’s five British race cards.
The back page of the Guardian’s ‘Sport’ section carries the latest news on Frankel’s preparation and says trainer Sir Henry Cecil will be absent with laryngitis, a topic that appeals to many of the papers, including the Daily Star and Daily Mail.
The Independent publishes the Glorious Goodwood card and prints colours for races shown on Channel 4, while columnist Sue Montgomery refers to ‘This isle’s most glorious setting for a race meeting’, a comment with which it is hard to disagree.
The Times’ leading tipster, Rob Wright, advises readers that ‘Libranno can excel in lead role at Goodwood’, and the same horse, a runner in the bet365 Lennox Stakes, is tipped by Templegate in The Sun. An alternative selection is put up by the Daily Mirror’s Newsboy, who opts for Chachamaidee.
WORLD-CLASS PARTICIPANTS GIVE GOOWOOD GLORIOUS EDGE
There may be pressure for publicity from the London Olympics, but Glorious Goodwood will hold its ground, said Adam Waterworth, the racecourse’s managing director.
As the runners paraded before the opening race on day one of the five-day meeting, Waterworth said: “After a lot of preparation this is the moment you want to get to - the first race on the first day. After this you more or less let the horses take you forward.
“Advance sales are good, especially on Wednesday when Frankel runs in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes. The Frankel factor has been huge, and, given a bit of fine weather, I believe the walk-up numbers will be large too.
“We have been really worried about the weather - we won’t lie, three weeks ago it kept on raining and we were very concerned, but we had a lovely seven days of sunshine last week and the ground is now more or less perfect. Because so many horses have been waiting for this ground, I believe the two-year-old races will be as good as they have ever been.”
Glorious Goodwood is being squeezed for media coverage by the London Olympics, but Waterworth is convinced there are benefits too. He said: “The Olympics heads the great summer of British sport, and we are proud to be a part of that. Because the Olympics is taking place, there is no other major event in the south of England besides Glorious Goodwood.
“It will be difficult to get the level of press coverage we would normally expect, but we have been going for more than 200 years so we must have confidence in the product. When you factor in that we are going to be joined by the world’s best racehorse [Frankel] and that some of the world’s best jockeys are riding here every day this week - in addition to some very competitive and high-class racing - then we are very optimistic that it will be a huge success despite the Olympics.
“We will know more about the effect the games have on us on Saturday, but our ticket sales have been very strong and I’m confident we are in for another fantastic meeting.”
FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES
JOHNSTON OFF MARK
Glorious Goodwood has long been a happy hunting ground for trainer Mark Johnston and the North Yorkshire handler got off the mark in this year’s pipe-opener with the tough Landaman.
Even though Johnston felt much had conspired against the four-year-old, he ran out an impressive two and a half length winner under Darren Egan.
“I couldn’t believe the draw we had because even though we had Oceanway drawn one, our average today is 14 from five runners,” said Johnston, who has been leading trainer at Glorious Goodwood seven times.
“Landaman stumbled out of the stalls and earlier in the year Joe (Fanning) wasn't convinced he was getting home. The ease in the ground was against him and holding him up didn’t seem to help him either.
“We now believe he needs to get a good break and be up there, but even today nothing went right and he still won better than ever.
“He came to us late and we couldn’t find the key to him early on but we have found it now. If we have found the key to him today we have done it by accident! He is entered later in the week (in the QIPCO Future Stars Apprentice Handicap on Saturday) so he could be back here.
“I hadn’t really heard much about Darren Egan but we were struggling for a jockey at Ascot on Saturday when he rode a winner for us on Scatter Dice and we were struggling again today so booked Darren again.”

APPRENTICE EGAN GAINS FIRST GLORIOUS WIN
A 5lb-claiming apprentice jockey stole the spotlight in race one of Glorious Goodwood when riding his first winner at the famous meeting, thanks to the Mark Johnston-trained Landaman.
Darren Egan, 20, from County Longford in Ireland, only arrived in Britain in November to join Chepstow-based trainer Ron Harris, having cut his teeth in his native land with Kevin Prendergast.
Of his victory in the bet365.com Handicap, Egan said: “He jumped a bit awkwardly - he stumbled and I nearly came out the side door. He recovered from it OK and I just let him take me there, I didn’t fight him. He travelled really well which helped me, and when I gave him a kick in the belly coming down the hill he ran on really well.
“He picked up and I thought that he was going too well because we seemed to have gone a bit early. Fair play to him because he kept going. Mr Johnston had told me beforehand not to light him up because he can race too freely, but the stumble at the start just checked him a bit and that helped.
“The draw [stall 17] kind of worked to my advantage because I got to go around the field. Coming down the hill, I came around them and he picked up really well.”
GOING AFTER THE FIRST
Richard Hughes, partner of Cai Shen, said: “I thought it was pretty good.”
Kieren Fallon, jockey of Danadana said: “A bit soft.”
Jamie Spencer, on board King’s Gambit, said: “Nearly good to soft.”
Silvestre De Sousa, rider of Start Right, said: “Nice ground.”
Eddie Ahern, on board Spanish Duke, said: “Good.”
Adrian Nicholls, jockey of Don’t Call Me, said: “Good.”
Phillip Makin, partner of Nanton, said: “Soft side of good.”
Hayley Turner, jockey of Oceanway, said: “Good.”
Martin Dwyer, rider of Pivotman, said: “Good.”
Cathy Gannon, on board Silken Thoughts, said: “Good ground.”
Paul Hanagan, partner of Las Verglas Star, said: “It’s good ground.”

The bet365 Gordon Stakes
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED - NOW BRING ON BIG BROTHER
Noble Mission, a brother to mighty Frankel, landed today’s bet365 Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
Owned and bred like Frankel by Prince Khalid Abdulla, and similarly trained and ridden by Sir Henry Cecil and Tom Queally, Noble Mission is not as good as his older sibling, but victory in this Group 3 contest stamps him as well above average.
Prince Khalid’s racing manager, Lord Grimthorpe, said of Noble Mission: “He’s improved mentally as much as physically and looking at him in the paddock you could see he is much more the finished article. He’s acting much more sensibly and professionally. It was a really good effort today.
“He wears a hood and we feel it’s really important to him - he wears it at home, too. We took it off him once and he didn’t work quite so well. It’s not because he’s nervous, but it helps his concentration.
“Tom said the horse took him into the race and he wanted to get upsides the runner-up [Encke] and eyeball him and he stuck his nose out and tried. In that respect he’s done it very genuinely.”
Ladbrokes, who sponsor the St Leger, Britain’s oldest and final Classic of the season, cut Noble Mission to 14/1 from 20/1 for that event. Grimthorpe said: “That race is a possibility, but I think Sir Henry will want to take the horse to York for the Great Voltigeur Stakes [August 22] to test those credentials further.
“It was hugely important to win a Group race with this horse for a number of reasons. His dam, Kind, has now produced three Group winners from three foals which is pretty remarkable, but it’s also important for the family and for him as a potential stallion - it’s really what Juddmonte [Prince Khalid’s breeding operation] is all about.
“Frankel is in great shape and Sir Henry has been very pleased with him. He’s been working just beautifully - the plan was to bring him for tomorrow’s race with a further view to the Juddmonte [at York next month].”
Sir Henry was absent from today’s meeting having been unwell, but Grimthorpe said: “He’s getting along great, but he’s got to look after himself and the horses at home.”

QUEALLY PLEASED WITH NOBLE MISSION
Jockey Tom Queally was delighted with Noble Mission’s attitude after Frankel’s full-brother was headed by Encke before fighting back to win the bet365 Gordon Stakes by a nose.
“It’s a great start to the meeting and thankfully we got the verdict. You never know if you’ve won but I felt Noble Mission had his head down at the right time. He took me into it sooner than I wanted and I was headed before coming back, said Queally.
“He dug deep when it mattered and I made the point of going to eyeball the other horse because I thought last time at Ascot the winner Thomas Chippendale caught him a bit by surprise. We were the width of four horses away from each other.
“He is a nice horse and he is improving - he’s going places. He travelled into the race well and sometimes he takes you there too easily so when you set him alight there is no taking him back, but he realised he had a battle on his hands and rose to it.”
Second race - The bet365 Gordon Stakes
GREAT VOLTIGEUR NEXT FOR ENCKE
The lightly-raced Encke posted a tremendous effort to lose out by just a nose to Noble Mission in the bet365.com Gordon Stakes and will head to York’s Ebor meeting next to boost his racecourse experience.
Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford said: “We’re delighted with that. We’ll head towards the Great Voltigeur - that’s his next port of call.
“He ran really well. Stepping up to a mile and a half has helped him. He’s just a little bit short on experience but that will come with time.”
Despite the good run, there was bad news for Encke’s jockey Mickael Barzalona, who was called before the stewards after the race. The panel found him to be in breach of the whip rule by being above the permitted level and suspended him for four days. The suspension will run from Tuesday, 14 to Friday, 17 August.
John Gosden, who trains Michelangelo for Bjorn Nielsen, said of the colt’s third-place finish: “He’s won here but he did get a bit unbalanced on the track. He should go to the St Leger - flat track. He’ll have one more run then the Leger.
“I was third in this race with Arctic Cosmos so it doesn’t bother me. I did not expect him to win today.”

CHACHAMAIDEE COMPLETES QUICK DOUBLE FOR SIR HENRY AND QUEALLY
Sir Henry Cecil completed a quick 7.44/1 double on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood when Noble Mission’s victory was complemented by that of Chachamaidee in the featured bet365 Lennox Stakes.
Tom Queally was in the saddle once again, this time wearing the colours of owner Tony Evans, who has a background in insurance and lives in Brighton.
Evans said: “I’ve always liked racing and bought my first horse about seven years ago. Pippa Greene, who was trained by Paul Cole, won for us, but the other horses have been the sort to run in class 6 hurdle races at Worcester!
“This mare has been fantastic and we also have an unraced two-year-old by Teofilo with Sir Henry.
“It’s great to have a winner at Glorious Goodwood and Chachamaidee won here last year when taking the [Group Three] Oak Tree Stakes on the Friday. Now she’s won a Group Three and a Group Two so it would be nice to win a Group One - she has plenty of entries and I’ve spoken to Sir Henry about possibilities, but I’ll leave the decisions to him.”
Sir Henry’s wife, Jane, was present, although her husband is not at Glorious Goodwood this week following treatment for cancer. Lady Cecil said: “He’s had treatment and following that your immune system is not as robust, so he’s just being sensible and staying at home.”

CHACHAMAIDEE BEATS THE BOYS IN THE LENNOX
Tom Queally rode a 7.44/1 Group race double when following his success in the bet365.com Gordon Stakes with a length and a half victory on Chachamaidee in the bet365 Lennox Stakes.
Queally, who is set to partner red-hot favourite Frankel in tomorrow’s QIPCO Sussex Stakes, said: “She was just a little bit slowly away. She was a bit unlucky at Ascot over a mile but, over seven furlongs, it’s nice that we finally hit the bullseye.
“They went a lovely gallop and it suited me. She quickened up nicely, she has got a great turn of foot, and it’s always nice to get winners like this at these sorts of meetings.
“Fillies have a bad enough record in this race, so it was nice for a mare like her to win it.”

LIBRANNO AND MAC LOVE PLEASE THEIR TRAINERS
Trainer Richard Hannon was delighted with Libranno’s run when finishing second in the bet365 Lennox Stakes.
“We had a bit of trouble in running, which you expect around here, and although the winner was always going to win I think we might have been a better second than we were,” said Hannon.
“Richard (Hughes) said he’s as tough as nails, which he is, and I might stick him in the Prix de la Foret at Longchamp in October. The seven furlongs there would suit him.”
The 11-year-old Mac Love looked as good as ever when finishing third, thrilling trainer Roger Charlton.
“Faster ground would have suited him even better and he ran a fantastic race,” said Charlton. “It was his 77th start and it’s amazing to think he was seventh behind Iffraaj in this race six years ago and the winner is a stallion now.
“If James Doyle had got off and said the horse wasn’t happy we would have called it a day but he is enjoying it so we will keep going.”

bet365 Molecomb Stakes (Group 3)
BUNGLE INTHEJUNGLE WINS MOLECOMB
The Mick Channon-trained Bungle Inthejungle showed great tenacity when headed by Morawij in the bet365 Molecomb Stakes and then getting up again to win the Group Three contest in the colours of breeder Chris Wright at 14/1.
“We fancied him at Ascot last time but he ended up all on his own on the far side,” said Channon. “But we had the draw and a bit going for us today. This had been the target for some time and the other horse got his neck in front but we outbattled him. I’m pleased with that and we’ll probably go for the Flying Childers (Doncaster, September 14).
“You’d think he’d improve with age but he’s by Exceed And Excel and although they are good they are quirky. You don’t know what you’ll get but they all have ability - you just have to curtail their speed.
A delighted Wright, who owns the winner in partnership with William Asprey and his daughter Emily, said: “That’s my first Group winner in England for an awful long time - I can’t remember my last one, it was that long ago! I have had them in America, France and Germany but not for ages here.
“I wasn’t sure that we had won. He is a home-bred, a grandson of the first filly I ever raced, Crime Of Passion. It means the world - there is no feeling like it and it is unbelievable. It’s incredible to have a grandson of that filly win a Group race at Goodwood.”
Wright, who founded Chrysalis Records, added: “He’s named after a song by Jethro Tull, who were almost the first group I signed. I’ve named quite a few horses after songs over the years and I was pleased to get the prize from Henry Kelly, who used to work for me.”

NO BUNGLE AS JUNGLE SCOOPS MOLECOMB
The bet365 Molecomb Stakes was fought out by two speedy young sons of Australian sprint sire Exceed And Excel with Bungle Inthejungle gaining the narrow verdict over his paternal half-brother Morawij, who had started favourite at 2/1 and was beaten a head for second.
Winning jockey Martin Harley said: “That was very good and this is a very tough horse. They jumped and went very fast early on but you can’t really go fast enough on this lad - he sees the five furlongs out really well.
“He is big horse with plenty of speed. I couldn’t believe that the other horse was able to take us along for a bit but that probably helped us - when he went half a length up, it helped my horse battle.
“I didn’t think that we were going to peg Neil [Callan, rider of Morawij] back but, when I got inside the final half-furlong, I thought that I was going to get him.
“He is tough and, once they have their heart in the right place, it helps.”

The bet365 Molecomb Stakes
MORAWIJ ALMOST THWARTS JUNGLE PATH TO VICTORY
A fast-and-furious race deserves a gripping finish, and that was the treat for racegoers watching the bet365 Molecomb Stakes for two-year-olds.
After five furlongs just a head separated the first two, with 14/1 chance Bungle Inthejungle pocketing the spoils from 2/1 favourite Morawij. A further three and three-quarter lengths back was third-placed Hototo.
Morawij is trained by Roger Varian, who said: “It’s a bit disappointing not to win but I don’t believe the horse did much wrong and I feel he’s still improving. He’s a very powerful horse.
“He could well go back up in trip and race over six furlongs next in the Gimcrack Stakes [August 24] - it’s a flat, easy, fast six at York, and that could well suit him. That race will certainly be under consideration.”
The Gimcrack Stakes or the DBS Premier Yearling Stakes at York are possible targets for Hototo, said trainer Kevin Ryan. He said: “I’m delighted with him - he stripped a lot sharper today than he did at Newbury and the ground suited him, but he just didn’t come down the hill as well he might. He was all at sea on that part of the course, and at the furlong pole you would have thought he would be fifth or sixth, but when he hit the rising ground he found his legs again.
“He stayed on really well but the race had gone - at this track if you’re not within a half length or neck when it matters you have no chance.
“He’ll probably run in one of the two York races. We did feel that after today we would step up to six, and with hindsight I probably should have had him in the [Audi-sponsored] Richmond Stakes [on Thursday] over six furlongs. He’s been a wonderful horse who loves going racing and is very easy to train.”
TWO-DAY BAN FOR CALLAN
A stewards’ enquiry following the bet365 Molecomb Stakes found that Neil Callan, rider of runner-up Morawij, had used his whip in excess of the permitted level. The jockey was banned for two days and will be unable to ride on Tuesday, 14 and Wednesday, 15 August.

Trainer John Gosden believes Blessington could be a two-year-old with a bright future after the Kheleyf colt took the Casino At bet365 EBF Maiden in stylish fashion.
“He got wiped out first time at Windsor but he’s a nice horse. This wasn’t a fluke,” said Gosden. “I like him a lot and put him in both the Mill Reef Stakes and Middle Park Stakes this morning.
“He came from Doncaster sales and is very active, I do like him a lot.”
Jockey William Buick added: “First time out he was a bit green but he’s improved a lot. He was still green in front but stuck to his guns. He’s a speedy type, very straightforward at home and has shown a good level of ability.”

BIG-PRICED VALLARTA SHOWS HE IS ONE TO NOTE
Sticking to the rail and using experience gained in a recent race at Windsor helped Blessington win this valuable maiden race, but there was plenty of credit in the effort of runner-up Vallarta.
An April foal making his racecourse debut and who cost the relatively small sum of 17,000gns, Vallarta was sent off at 50/1 in the 17-runner field, but finished strongly to close to within a length of the winner. Back in third, a further length-and-a-quarter adrift, was Saint Jerome, trained by Marcus Tregoning for Lady Tennant.
Vallarta is trained at West Ilsley in Berkshire by Mick Channon and was ridden by Martin Harley in the colours of Bargate, a syndicate that comprises a team of people from Southampton and Australia. The Bargate is a well known landmark - a mediaeval gatehouse - in Southampton high street.
Channon said: “I’m very pleased with that - he’s run well. I’m sure we’ll look at some of the sales races in the autumn and we’ll try to win a maiden with him before then.
“He was very professional there. We’ve always thought a bit of him, but he needed time. I know he was 50/1, but that didn’t worry us.”

CALLAN ENJOYS HIGH FOLLOWING A LOW
Racing’s ability to give jockeys a wrap followed by a moment of ecstasy was exemplified by 35 minutes in the life of Neil Callan at Glorious Goodwood today.
Callan was beaten a head in the bet365 Molecomb Stakes on Morawij, and had the disappointment of defeat compounded when handed a two-day ban for incorrect use of the whip.
Yet he soon bounced back and landed the very next race, The Poker at bet365 Handicap, on the Stuart Kittow-trained Uppercut.
Of his victory on Uppercut, Callan said: “I’ve ridden him once in the past and would say he’s really a fast-ground horse, but they went a good pace and he travelled nicely.
“My main concern was getting to the front too soon, because he just idles a bit when he sees a lot of daylight. I felt he had to be at his best in a maximum field at Goodwood in a competitive handicap, and I didn’t want a lot of horses breathing down our neck as we headed to the line. Luckily the line came in time. It was a really gutsy performance.”

Bancuanaheireann, who cost just 2,500gns out of Jim Bolger’s stable at this month’s Tattersalls July Sale, could turn out to be a bargain buy after finishing a close second in the Poker At bet365 Handicap.
“He didn’t get the best of runs through and if he had had a better passage he probably would have won,” said trainer Michael Appleby.
“We’ve got a bit more to work on with him but he’s a nice horse and we couldn’t work out why we managed to get him so cheaply.”
