GOING NEWS AT 10.30AM


There has been no rain at Goodwood since 7pm yesterday evening and the ground for the fourth day of the Festival Meeting is

GOOD,

the same as it was at the end of racing yesterday.


“It may be a bit easier than that on the straight course and a touch faster on the round course, but overall the ground is good,” says Clerk of the Course and General Manager Rod Fabricius. “The penetrometer reading is 3.6; it was 2.7 before the rain came yesterday.


“We had 10 millimetres (just under half an inch) of rain yesterday afternoon, though the bulk of it came fairly late on and it did not really start to get into the ground until the time of the JPMorgan Private Bank Goodwood Cup”

Fabricius added that the temporary rail on the top bend was removed after racing yesterday, so that both temporary rails which were in situation at the start of the week have now been taken down,

However, there is a new termporary rail to steer the runners away from worn and poached ground on the bottom bend, which will be up for today and tomorrow.”



HIGH NUMBERS ALL THE RAGE
FOR VODAFONE STEWARDS’ CUP


Representatives of runners in Saturday’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup were mainly looking for a high stall number at the public draw held at Goodwood at noon yesterday. Four of the last six winners came out of stalls 28 (twice), 29 and 30.


Vicious Dancer was the first horse drawn out by Clare Balding but as trainer Richard Whitaker did not have a representative, the three-year-old waited until the end to be given a berth and was handed stall 13.


He was followed out by Honesty Fair, for whom Jamie Osborne - representing trainer Jeremy Glover - picked stall 16 but of the following 11 horses, all but two chose positions above 20.


Ian Balding selected 30 for Halmahera, who finished second two years ago and ninth last year, and said: “Over the years high draws have been significantly better and I always think it’s good to be on a rail if you can be. We hope to have some pace and we should do with Smokin Beau in 29. Halmahera should have a good each-way chance as he has run very well here before.”

John Hills will be running Cubism with a first-time visor from 25 and the Lambourn trainer said: “He ran a good race last time and I think that, as he’s got a bit older, the visor will help him concentrate. He won the race on the stands side when he was third last year and he’s got to be in with a shout.”

Bryn Palling, who was represented by journalist Tim Richards, was delighted to get stall 21. “I’m very happy with that,” said Palling from his Welsh stable. “The horse is really well and it’s great to hear that it’s raining. If we get more rain between now and Saturday, we’d have a sporting chance of winning.”

Jon Akehurst is another trainer looking for a downpour for Marsad in stall 8. “We’re hoping for a bit of rain. Unfortunately we were drawn out a bit early (he was the sixth horse out) as I wanted to be around the pace. I might be right (going for a lower number) or the others might be right, we’ll find out on Saturday.”

Coral make stablemates Continent and Undettered the new 6/1 joint favourites in stalls 27 and 23 and their trainer Dandy Nicholls said: “They’ve got a good draw. We went high last year (when winning) with Tayseer and we’ve gone high again. With Smokin Beau up there, we’ll have a bit of pace and all we need now is some luck.”

Differential was the penultimate horse drawn, getting stall 17, and his trainer Bryan Smart said: “I’m as pleased as we can be with that, but would have liked to have been in the 20s. Brevity is also drawn in the middle and we were only a length and a half off him last time.”

Differential was a seemingly unlucky fourth at Ascot on Friday and Smart added: “To say we were slightly unlucky would be an understatement. It was the first time that he settled and he‘s a very good horse on his best form. I think that if he comes back to his best then we won’t be far away.”

Brevity’s trainer Milton Bradley, who also has Juwwi in the race, was not present so the duo were given stalls 12 and 14 respectively at the end of proceedings.


Paul Goode selected stall 7 for his mount, the Chris Fairhurst-trained Perfect Peach, and he said: “I’m very happy with that. Through the week they’ve all been coming from the stands side to the middle.



NICHOLLS PAIR SET TO START
FAVOURITES FOR
VODAFONE STEWARDS’ CUP


Sprint handicap king Dandy Nicholls, who was successful in last year’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup with Tayseer, looks set to provide the market leaders for tomorrow’s renewal.


Continent was 10/1 with Coral Eurobet for the handicap before yesterday’s draw but was cut to 6/1 after being given stall 27. “Continent would be the biggest loser in our book,” said the firm’s spokesman Simon Clare. “But his stablemate Undeterred is certainly not unfancied and I should think one of them will be favourite.”

Coral Eurobet have also seen money for Honesty Fair, who is 20/1 from 33/1 since the draw with some “shrewides” supporting Jeremy Glover’s charge, who has form on softer ground and is in stall 16.


The Tote have seen ante-post betting on three horses, almost to the exclusion of others. Public relations director Matt Chapman said: “We originally had Seven No Trumps at 12/1, he went out to 16/1 after his run at Newbury but has since been backed into 7/1.


“Undeterred was a best-priced 16/1 and has been backed at all rates down to 5/1 while the other horse to understandably attract support has been Brevity, who was around 12/1 but went to 8/1 after yesterday’s draw.”

Undeterred is Paddy Power’s 6/1 favourite, having been shortened from 12/1, at which price the firm took a £500 each-way bet. Continent and Brevity share second favouritism on 7/1, having respectively been available 16/1 and 14/1.


The Dublin firm’s spokesman, Tim Richards, added: “In the last couple of days we have seen money for Halmahera from 25/1 to 16/1 while Smokin Beau is into 16/1 from 20/1 today.” Paddy Power are offering one quarter the odds for the first five home.


William Hill have pushed Brevity out a point to 7/1 and their main mover since the draw has been Bon Ami, who has been cut to 25/1 from 33/1.

SPENCER’S ENTERPRISING
VENTURE WINS OPENER


Jamie Spencer gave 16/1 chance Venturer an enterprising ride to take the Daily Telegraph Discover Racing Stakes by a length and a half from a seemingly unlucky Royal Millennium.


The winner’s trainer John Gosden said: “I said to Jamie beforehand that he was drawn on the inside but the horse didn’t have the class to go round them.


“So I told him that if he managed to get through, which he did, he would be called a genius and if not he could blame the trainer!”

Frankie Dettori is Venturer’s usual rider and Gosden added: “Frankie rode him in May but chose another one today (Raheibb) but that was withdrawn.”

Trainer Mick Channon described runner-up Royal Millennium as “an unlucky horse and he was certainly unlucky.

“There was no room when he first tried to get through on the rail, so he then switched outwards, but there was no room there again. When he came back inside the winner had gone and simply got first run on him. But that’s racing.”

WINNING QUOTES RACE TWO
melcollier.com STAKES
NO MORE HANDICAPS
FOR ASKHAM


Askham, marginally unlucky in running when beaten by Alphaeus at Newmarket last time, made no mistake in the mile and a quarter handicap, the melcollier.com Stakes, as he romped home three lengths clear of Masterful.


But his trainer Luca Cumani was not worried about the handicapper taking too exotic a view of the performance, as he forecast that “this will be the end of handicaps for him.


“I think he is now a Listed, maybe a Group Three horse,” he said. “He has not got any interesting entries at that level yet, apart from being in the Voltigeur but he is not going to go over a mile and a half, but I expect that we shall soon find some.


“I think he will be best over a mile and a mile and a quarter, and I would not be worried about dropping him back to a mile after this as he has so much speed.


“He was a bit keen going to post but Jamie (Spencer) has lovely hands and the horse settled very well. Jamie said that they did not go a great pace, and he was able gradually to get him closer. He could not wait to send him into the lead.”

Which Spencer, whom Cumani tipped as a champion jockey of the future, did fully three furlongs from home as Askham completed a 62¾-1 double for his jockey, who had won the first race on Venturer, and now is the leading rider at Glorious Goodwood with three winners.


The result also vindicated the judgement of the race’s sponsor Melvyn Collier, who tipped the winner in his pre-race BBC interview.


Cumani’s horses have been in good form of late, and the trainer feels that people have the wrong perception of the strength of his yard.

“Many people seem to think that I still have 100/150 horses in training and should be having winners almost every day,” he said. “But I have not anything like those numbers and am happy to keep going with two or three winners a week.”



SECOND RACE PLACED QUOTES
THE melcollier.com STAKES
MASTERFUL IS MASTERED


John Gosden, who took the opener with Venturer, had to settle for second best when Masterful, who won at Ascot on Sunday, failed to pull off a hat-trick in the melcollier.com Stakes finishing three lengths behind Askham.


“It was a solid run but the winner was impressive and did it well,” said Gosden. “He’s run back quickly and we’ll freshen him up for a couple of weeks now.”

David Elsworth feels that third-placed Indian Creek could improve further. “I’m very pleased with that. He’s a horse who is amazingly green - he’s had five runs now and is still learning - and he didn’t get the best of runs in the straight.


“There is a nice race in him, I put him in the Champion Stakes which might seem a bit stupid now but if you don’t buy a raffle ticket you can’t win.”

Elsworth added that yesterday’s JPMorgan Private Bank Goodwood Cup winner Persian Punch had come home “in great form.”

Today’s Tote Jackpot pool was £146,824 and after Venturer won the firstt race there was £1,835 remaining, which fell to £487 following Askham’s victory.

THIRD RACE QUOTES
THE THEO FENNELL LENNOX STAKES (GROUP 3)
FATH TAKES THEO FENNELL


Fath, sporting the second colours of Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, prevailed by three quarters of a length from the owner’s first string, Munir, in the Group 3 Theo Fennell Lennox Stakes.


The winner’s trainer Marcus Tregoning said: “He liked this ground as a two-year-old and even if it had rained more I think he would have been OK.


“He ran over six furlongs with Godolphin and won over that trip as a two-year-old. We found him a bit keen in the spring and he went sprinting. He ran some very good races - getting beaten a short head a couple of times - but he’s more relaxed now.”

Asked if the four-year-old would stay in training next season, Tregoning replied: “I think we might have to now. He looks to have a bit more left.”

Reflecting on a week in which he has three seconds, including Sheppard’s Watch in yesterday’s Oak Tree Stakes, and two thirds, including Nayef in the Peugeot Gordon Stakes, Tregoning added: “We’ve been trying all week and at times it has been desperate so thank God for that!

“I’m very pleased with the way Nayef has taken his race but I haven’t talked to Sheikh Hamdan about where he will go next.


“Sheppard’s Watch is going to join Christophe Clement in America but I am waiting for the call to find out when. I think she’ll do very well there and will improve as a four-year-old. In the States she should get a mile and a quarter.”

Angus Gold, racing manager to Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, said of the runner-up Munir: “He is still immature and maybe that just cost him the race. He likes soft ground - it was certainly like that when he won the Greenham - and I would think that such conditions wouldn’t be a problem for him later on in the year.”

WINNING QUOTES RACE FOUR
LADY O MEMORIAL GLORIOUS RATED STAKES
COMPTON BOLTS
TO ARLINGTON


Compton Bolter battled his way home in the mile and a half handicap, the Lady O Memorial Glorious Rated Stakes, and will be venturing much further afield soon as he tries for the Arlington Million, at Arlington Park near Chicago, USA. This will be Compton Bolter’s second run at the Illinois track, as he went for the Grade One Secretariat Stakes there last year and finished fifth.


He won in spite of fears that the rain yesterday might have made the ground softer than ideal. “A mile and a half is stretching him to his limit, and we were concerned that the softer ground might make it very difficult for him,” said his trainer Gerard Butler, who was full of praise for the way in which the winner was ridden by Kevin Darley.


“Kevin gave him a brilliant ride,” he said. “He was off the bridle for a long way, but at the junction everything snapped into place, though it took him his time to get past Maniatis. He was at one end of the handicap and we were at the other, so we were giving him a stone.”

Butler also paid tribute to Compton Bolter’s toughness. “He cost 17,000gns as a yearling and has never missed a day since. People have been saying that we run him too often, but he runs his race every time and is a very tough horse. He has been almost everywhere apart from Hong Kong, and we would like to get him there one day.”

The winner’s owner Erik Penser commented that the four-year-old “goes on everything, soft, or heavy or dirt,” and it was only the question of the horse staying the trip here which promoted the soft ground concern.


Paul Cole, the runner-up’s trainer said: “He’s run a good race and we knew he’d stay on - it’s a matter of whether something else would just get there.

Owner Athos Christodoulo, having his third second of the week, added: “He’s in the Ebor and I think would run there is it’s soft.”

There is £2.40 worth of Tote Jackpot tickets still standing after Compton Bolter’s success - down from £46 before it.

FIFTH RACE QUOTES
THE FINDON NURSERY
DEUTERS DOUBLE UP


Herefordshire-based owners Chris and Antonia Deuters, who won yesterday’s nursery with Rum Destiny, pulled off the two-year-old handicap double when Perle D’Azur, also trained by Alan Berry, scored by three quarters of a length from Happy Guest.


“We were a bit concerned that she was really a seven-furlong horse. We were also worried earlier in the week by the fast ground but she’s a lovely horse and so laid-back,” said Chris Deuters in the absence of Berry, who returned home last night.


“Frannie (Norton) has ridden six winners for us in the last six weeks. He gives everything he rides an opportunity and if they’re good enough they get there.”

The owners have had great success at Goodwood and Deuters added: “I had to do a job once and Rum Destiny was our first winner here that I had seen so it was special.”

The winner was bought for 15,000gns at Doncaster’s St Leger Yearling Sales last year and Mrs Deuters added: “She was picked out for us by David Redvers and she had got cast in her box and was a bit lame so we probably got a bargain.


“We always liked her, we had seen her at (her breeder Terry Holdcroft’s) Bearstone Stud, where we keep some of our mares and have probably had about 25 winners from there.”



JACKPOT CAN ONLY BE PART WON


After the fifth race there was just 20p remaining in the Tote Jackpot, placed in an independent betting shop, going on to the favourite Sweet Band in the final leg.

WINNING QUOTES RACE SIX
EBF TRUNDLE MAIDEN STAKES
DREAMS FOR DUNLOP


Sweet Band readily fulfilled the promise of his debut at Newmarket last month when he readily justified 4/7 favouritism in the two-year-old maiden, beating Golden Spectrum by two and a half lengths.


“He ran very well first time out and that was very satisfactory,” said his trainer Ed Dunlop. “But he is still a tall, weak horse and he won’t be over-campaigned for the rest of this season - maybe just one more run in a conditions race, which will be a small stake rather than a big one. We did put him in all the big races, which we had to do after his good first run, but I am sure we shall stay small.


“He is from the same family as Fantastic Light and has a very good pedigree. We can start dreaming and if all goes well he could be a Derby horse.”

The winner was ridden by Michael Kinane but could have been partnered by Frankie Dettori, who ended up watching the race from the stands.


“I am due to be riding for David Loder at Newmarket tonight and so did not take any rides after the third race here, so that I had time to drive to Newmarket,” he said.


“But I had not gone very far when I learned that the M25 is closed, so I
have come back here and shall get a lift up to Newmarket in a helicopter.”



JACKPOT WON


There was one 20p winning unit for the Tote Jackpot, belonging to a Tote Direct punter who placed his bet in an independent betting shop. He collects £20,849 for his 20p, so that there is a carry-over to Chester on Sunday of £117,459. The pool was £146,824.

SEVENTH RACE QUOTES
THE STEWARDS’ SPRINT STAKES
FLAK JACKET AGAIN



Flak Jacket justified 5/2 favouritism to take the Steward’s Sprint Stakes for a second successive year.


“This was always the plan,” said winning trainer David Nicholls. “And if he was sound he would be a proper horse. You can see by the scars on his knees the problems he has had. He has had to have his knees injected and we will probably operate on them in the winter.


“When Kieren (Fallon) rode him at Haydock he ducked in pain because of a knee and he has also had problems with his wind.”

Nicholls saddles the two market leaders in tomorrow’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, Continent and Undeterred, and he added: “After watching today, I’m a bit more confident because we went high, as we had always planned to do. I think the track kind of runs that way even though I managed to win on Soba from stall one. I think the ground is as near to perfect today as it can be.”



BUCKLEY PLEASED



Seamus Buckley, assistant clerk of the course, said: “The day has gone very well and I was very pleased with the way in which the track took the racing after yesterday’s rain. The forecast suggests that there may be the odd passing shower tonight, but nothing more than that.”


TOTE UP



The Tote on-course cash turnover of £587,970 represented a 3.3 per cent increase on last year’s figure of £568,996.

WIN £1 MILLION
FOR CHARITY


Cantor Sport, sponsor of Thursday’s Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood and the sports spread betting division of Cantor Index, is offering a prize of £1 million to any one of 100 selected racing correspondents who can tip all 18 winners at the three evening meetings on August 24.


The company is sponsoring all three programmes that evening, and though they admit that it is unlikely that any expert is likely to name all 18 winners -- the odds are apparently seven times longer than those against winning the lottery -- there will be a prize of £10,000 to the writer who tips the most winners.


All this expertise will be largely in aid of charity, as in the event of someone finding all 18 and to the person who finds most winners, the cheque will be made payable to a charity of the winner’s choice,

There is, though, a prize for the personal pleasure of the winner, who will qualify for an all expenses paid weekend for two at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons.


As well as sponsoring the Molecomb, Cantor Sport are also sponsoring the pre-Christmas meeting at Ascot on December 22 and 23, entire cards at Brighton, Salisbury and Newcastle on October 3 and are in negotiations for similar ventures at Newcastle and Hereford.
