“We were very disappointed that we had to take Hilltop Warning out of the William Hill Mile on Thursday because the rain had made the ground too soft for him, but there is no doubt that the easier ground helped this fellow,” declared Sean Woods’ travelling head lad Andy Shaw after Richest Vein had sprung a 20/1 surprise in the opener.

“Mind you, I thought he was harshly handicapped on what he had done,” Shaw went on. “He was one of our early two-year-olds and won on the all weather at Southwell, but I really felt he had too much to do here.”

Such thoughts, however, had not conveyed themselves to Richest Vein as Richard Hughes brought him with a long smooth run down the outside to master Sandy Lady entering the final furlong and then hold the 25/1 shot Swing Wing by three-quarters of a length.

The race was quite a triumph for all weather horses as Swing Wing, whose trainer Paul Cole felt that he had been a bit unlucky in running, had done all his previous racing on the all weather and was now making his first appearance on grass.

Jockeys Mick Kinane and Kevin Darley both described the ground as “good” after riding in the opener.

Goggles, who broke his duck at Goodwood 12 months ago, got his head in front for the first time this season when beating Sonatina by half a length.

“He loves this course,” said winning trainer Henry Candy. “And this is his time of the year - now and the next few weeks. I think that if it had been firm today he would have won better but if it had rained half an hour ago I’d have taken him out.

“He was bought by (owner) Jenny Powell at the breeze-ups last year with the purpose of winning the Doncaster sales race, which he duly did. We must give the credit for buying him to David Minton. He did not cost a huge amount (20,000gns) and had been through a sale ring four times even though he was two.

“I have nothing planned for him, we’ll have to look at the progamme book. He has been a hard horse to place because after his sales race handicaps were out.”

Goggles was Mrs Powell’s first Flat horse although she has had several good jumpers, including Gaelstrom and Gulshan, all of whom begin with the letter G. “Jenny likes to call them her G-String,” added Candy.


“I don’t think that she was unlucky, it was just that Henry (Candy)’s horse kept pulling out that little bit more,” said Pip Payne after Sonatina had gone down by half a length to Goggles in the Vodafone Thoroughbred Stakes.

“She was going as well as, if not better than, the winner turning for home, but she could just never get past him. Kieren (Fallon) said that he could have challenged up the rails, but he decided not to take the risk of going there and came down the outside instead. I don’t honestly think that it made any difference.

“I think she should be able to win a Listed race like this, and she will make a lovely broodmare one day,” added Payne of his admirably consistent filly, who has never been further back than fourth in her five races so far.

Lailani won her sixth race on the bounce and her second Group 1 in less than a month when she retrieved what looked an unpromising position three furlongs out to master Snowflake inside the final furlong and win by a length and a half.

The runner-up, who had been backed at fancy odds in the morning, had a long lead at one stage but Lailani’s finish was that bit too much for her.

“She is all heart,” said the winner’s trainer Ed Dunlop. “She had a dreadful journey down here yesterday thanks to the problems of the M25 and it took her six hours to get here. But she was unworried when she finally arrived here; that is typical of her, she has a heart bigger than herself.

“There is no doubt that winning the Irish Oaks with her was the highlight of the season, but winning another Group 1 here runs that pretty close.

“I really cannot explain how she has improved so much. She does not do anything exceptional at home and when she won her maiden at Windsor by ten lengths - Gary Carter rode her then - I thought that was bound to be the end of handicaps for her.”

But it was not, as Lailani won two races of that nature and a conditions heat before her Curragh victory and now this sixth success.

“I hope now that she will have a nice long rest and then reappear in the Prix Vermeille,” added Dunlop, thereby ruling out the Yorkshire Oaks, which he had mentioned after Lailaini had won in Ireland.

In anticipation of Longchamp success next month, Coral offer 12-1 (from 20-1) about Lailani taking the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in October.


Frankie Dettori completed the Glorious Goodwood Group One double when taking the Vodafone Nassau Stakes on Lailani, having on Wednesday partnered Noverre to victory in the Champagne Lanson Sussex Stakes.

He did his usual flying dismount from the Ed Dunlop-trained filly who was winning her sixth race in a row.

Dettori said: “It was great for the filly. I felt a bit of pressure as she had won five in a row and I thought it would be a shame to lose.

“She must have been a good thing in handicaps at the beginning of the season! She’s all heart and every task we have given her she has come through.

“She is a buzzy little filly and has had some tough races. She was getting a bit warm but I am very good with fillies!

“Once she was out on the racecourse she was fine - she just wanted to get on with it. Looking at the race beforehand, I thought that Danceabout, Michael Kinane’s filly and Time Away were the dangers.

“I always felt that I had Time Away covered but I didn’t want to get there too early and not have anybody to aim at. So I gave the first two a couple of lengths start and it nearly cost me a little bit - it took me a bit of time to go and get them. Once I asked her for a final effort she gave me all she had - Lailani is a really courageous filly.

“I was trying to correct my filly who was hanging in - I didn’t want to lose the race in the stewards’ room - I gave her three or four slaps down the shoulder and then when I asked her to win her race I gave her one behind the saddle and just for a stride I caught Pat’s filly. I put my stick down and away she went.

“It is great to ride animals who really try for you.”



The well-supported outsider Snowflake put up a gallant front-running display to nearly steal the Group 1 Vodafone Nassau Stakes, eventually going down by a length and a half in the closing stages to favourite Lailani.

A half length back in third was Time Away, saddled by winning trainer Ed Dunlop’s father John.

Dunlop senior expressed reservations about whether his filly would act on the course prior to the race and afterwards said: “I don’t think the track did suit her, she was hanging turning into the straight.

“She ran a much better race than in Ireland (when sixth to Lailani in the Irish Oaks) and I’ve absolutely no idea what she will go for now.”

Guinea Hunter sprung a 33/1 shock and survived a stewards’ enquiry to land the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup in the colours of his Cayman Islands-based owner Martyn Burke.

It was Jamie Spencer’s fourth win of the meeting and a first success of Glorious Goodwood 2001 for trainer Tim Easterby, who watched the success from Thirsk.

“We were very grateful for the rain on Thursday because his best form is on good-to-soft,” said Burke.

“We had a few pounds each-way on him but would have liked to have been drawn a little higher. However, we were not too concerned because there was a lot of pace around 19 and he likes to come from behind.

The five-year-old was bred by the brothers Richard and Edmond Kent and Burke added: “We bought him as a yearling and so know the horse very well. He’s been knocking on the door for a couple of years but we thought the Ayr Gold Cup would be more likely to be his race because he was more likely to get his ground.”

Burke originally hails from the Doncaster area where his father built up a civil engineering business, which he sold to Southern Electric a few years ago. He sold his National Hunt string, including Aintree winner Garruth for 175,000gns, at Doncaster Sales in May and intends to cut back on the Flat.

“We live in the Cayman islands now but have been here for the whole of Goodwood and this has put a lid on a super week,” he added. “I just come over for the summer. We have a base in Ireland where I spend two or three months and then a couple of months in England. We pickpocket our time in England with the different race meetings.

“I sold Garruth and all of my National Hunt horses because of just not being able to get over and see them. It was marvellous when Garruth won at Aintree but very disappointing not to be able to see him and there is no point in having jumpers if you can’t enjoy the highs.

“I have about 30 on the Flat but I intend to reduce my string. (Vodafone Nassau Stakes fourth) Cayman Sunset will join my commercial breeding operation, comprising around 20 mares with Liam McAteer (at Woodtown House Stud near Navan) in Ireland and eight to ten in Kentucky. We are breeding to sell and will just keep one or two fillies to race.”


Jamie Spencer recorded his fourth winner of Glorious Goodwood 2001 on Guinea Hunter in the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup and became the top jockey at the meeting for a moment.

He said: “I spoke to Tim (Easterby) early on and he was pretty confident that Guinea Hunter would run a good race.

“He sweated up badly at Ascot last time out so I had to get him relaxed. He hacked down and never turned a hair. He was in the stalls plenty early enough, that was the only worry I had. He was drawn 19 and there were a lot of late horses.

“Throughout the race he travelled smoothly and I wasn’t too far away from the pace. I had two good ones leading me and all I wanted was a lead until the furlong pole.

“From there on he has dug deep, leaning admittedly to the right with me, and when the other horses came to me he kept going all the way to the line.

“It is great - nice to win the race - it is one of my first big wins in England this year. I wasn’t involved in the interference at all - that happened beforehand. I was clear when I was coming across.

“It has been a great week with four wins - you never expect to be winning all these races - it is very difficult here. One race I would have liked to have won was Demophilos’ - I thought I had Kieren (Fallon) at the furlong pole but he came back at beat me - that is the way it goes - you cannot be greedy.

“It is a nice to have a good agent (Ray Cochrane) - I obviously get a lot of rides off the back of Frankie (Dettori) because we share the same agent. When Frankie is not available my agent puts me in straight away. I have had three rides for David Loder and the three have won. It is all on the back of Frankie. I would like to thank Frankie for getting me to ride out for Mr Loder when he is not available.

“Luca Cumani is brilliant. My ambition is to stay in one piece. I thought I had the race stolen three out on Snowflake earlier today (in the Vodafone Nassau Stakes). Mr O’Brien just said to go wherever I was happy, whether that was in front or getting a lead if they went a pace. I kicked on and it was a good performance to run an Oaks winner so close - she is big filly who may be a bit weak.

“The day you think you are there that is the day you go down. Hopefully, I would like to improve every day. A lot of people have been built up before me and have come down back to earth as quick, so I just want to keep improving and stay in one piece. It is hard enough and I don’t want an injury to dash my weight away.”


“It really is heartbreaking,” said Ian Balding after Halmahera had been beaten just a neck by the 33-1 chance Guinea Hunter.

“He has run his heart out, poor little horse. I thought he was going to win but he just could not hang on.

“Neil (Pollard) said the winner did tighten him up a bit, but not enough to make any difference. If the distance had been a short head then we might have felt that it affected the result, but not with him winning by a neck.”

“There was no problem with the ground for him, he goes on anything,” the trainer added.

Halmahera was also second in the 1999 Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, beaten a length and a half by Harmonic Way, and finished ninth last year.

Peter Savill, the British Horseracing Board chairman and owner of runner-up Undeterred, was not a happy man.

“Kieren (Fallon) said he is sure he would have won if the winner had not gone across him, and he wants to object,” he said.

Fallon did not, however, lodge a complaint as the stewards had already started their inquiry.

Paul Fitzsimons, rider of Brevity, who finished 15th, said the ground was too soft for him. “It was just not fast enough for him, and those racing on the far side always had a big advantage,” he said.

“He has always had ability, but he has been a bit of a playboy,” said Barry Hills’ assistant Kevin Mooney after Big Moment had worn down long-time leader Find The King to take the Turf Club Rated Stakes.

“He is finally getting his act together and the guv’nor thought that going over long distances would suit him,” Mooney went on.

“Darryll (Holland) said that he fell out of the stalls a bit, which wasn’t the plan, but they went a decent gallop. He gradually worked his way into it and stuck on really well.

“He is in the Ebor (Big Moment gets a 7lb penalty to add to his 7st 5lb at York), but there aren’t any firm plans yet. We also have Solo Flight in that race and I would think that he would be our number one choice.”

Milton Bradley, whose well-fancied Brevity could finish only 15th in the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, gained some consolation and a 50th success of the season when Bali Royal took the penultimate race of Glorious Goodwood.

“We had to wait until the last chance stakes to get the 50, we have just struggled a bit this week and I think it was just too loose for Brevity in the Stewards’ Cup,” said Bradley. “I rang my wife before this and she reminded me the week wasn’t over as we have a couple at Newbury tomorrow who could have got the 50!

“When we got a bit of cut in the ground I thought we came here with every chance because she is improving. She lost her form last year and had to run in sellers.

“We’ve done nothing different this season, I just think she wanted another year and with some of them it’s worth the wait.

“We took her to Musselburgh for a maiden handicap, which she won, and she has just gone on from there.”

Winning rider Kevin Darley added: “She seems to keep her form really well, she dug deep and won nicely. It’s been a good week and the highlight was winning the William Hill Mile on Riberac because of what happened to her in the stalls at York last time.”


Brian Meehan was off to have a few words with the handicapper after top weight Indian Prince had been beaten into third place by his old rival Bali Royal in the handicap sprint.

“I am spitting blood,” he said. “We were put up 7lb for winning at Bath and Bali Royal, whom we beat by a length and three-quarters, was put up only 2lb.

“Clearly from this result we were put up too much (Bali Royal beat Indian Prince by a length) and I am off now to have a word with the handicapper.

“We will take him to York now, there’s a nice five furlong handicap for him there and that is his trip. He will have come down the ratings by then, I can assure you.

“He did not run as a two-year-old because he was a bit of a late developer. He had a few little problems, including a touch of sore shins once, and by the time he was over them time had almost run out on us. When I spoke about things to David (Wright, the horse’s owner), he said that I should put him away if I felt that was best, so that was what we did.”

David Wright, who runs Indian Prince under the name of his Matham Investments, agreed with Meehan about that decision and added. “He is a very genuine horse who always runs his race, just as he has done here.”


Class C, £10,000 added. For three-year-olds rated 0-90. Minimum weight 7st 10lb. Penalties: after July 28, a winner 7lb. Penalty values: 1st: £7,670; 2nd: £2,360; 3rd: £1,180; 4th: £590

Richard Hannon, always a great supporter of Goodwood, had to wait until the 35th and final race of the meeting to get off the mark when Priors Lodge got the better of a sustained battle with Spencer’s Wood.

“He is a tough horse and he will come on for that,” he said. “We always thought that he was a good horse last year, and I am sure that he will prove that he is. He has not raced very much because he has had back problems, though he is over that now.

“He is almost black in colour (officially Priors Wood is brown), and always looks really well. You can see your face in his coat when you go round at night.

“I have had two horses by Grand Lodge, this fellow and one called Red Magic, who has been sold to America. It was almost impossible to tell them apart - they were both that colour and neither had a mark on him.”

Kevin Darley just pipped Jamie Spencer for the Daily Telegraph Leading Rider Award at Glorious Goodwood. Both had four wins and two seconds but Darley had two thirds compared to Spencer’s one.

Frankie Dettori was third with three wins, ahead of Michael Kinane and Darryll Holland who had the same number of victories.


The set of dentures found at the seven-furlong start on Thursday have been reunited with their owner, a technician working for RaceTech, the racecourse technical services’ provider.

The mystery teeth have attracted wide interest since being found but it was not until this morning that Bev Davies, who has been caring for them in the Goodwood Racecourse office, was able to return them to their owner.

“We’ve been looking after the teeth very carefully,” said Davies. “The gentleman came in to see if we’d found them, and I don’t think he had a spare set so he was very pleased.

“We told him to come back if they were not his but I think they must have fitted as he has not returned.”

There is no doubt that for many of the visitors to Glorious Goodwood this week the highlight of the meeting has been the success of eight-year-old Persian Punch in the JPMorgan Private Bank Goodwood Cup on Thursday. Not even the atrocious weather that day could detract from the pleasure the old horse gave to over a million people, at the course and watching on television, as he battled back to get the better of the three-year-old Double Honour, who is less than half Persian Punch’s age.

His success was the second leg of a notable long-distance double for owner Jeff Smith and trainer David Elsworth, who were successful on the first day, Tuesday, when First Ballot made almost all the running in the mile and three-quarters ladbrokes.co.uk Prestige Handicap.

First Ballot was the second leg of a double on the first afternoon for the season’s leading jockey Kieren Fallon, who reached 100 for the campaign the following evening.

Earlier Fallon had ridden Alexius to a remarkable victory over Demophilos in the Peugeot Gordon Stakes, in which Sheikh Mohammed’s colt overcame losing a dozen lengths at the start to win by a neck and promote himself to clear favouritism for the St Leger at Doncaster next month.

Sheikh Mohammed also had cause for celebration on the Wednesday of the meeting when Noverre, running under the Sheikh’s Godolphin banner, came out best in a thrilling battle with his old rivals No Excuse Needed and Black Minnaloushe to take the Champagne Lanson Sussex Stakes and encourage his owner to say that the colt is now “the best miler in Europe.” This view was later endorsed by the official handicapper Dominic Gardiner-Hill.

Though they met with defeat there, the Coolmore team fronted by Aidan O’Brien, Michael Tabor and Michael Kinane, took the King George Stakes with Dietrich.

Mark Johnston makes no secret of how much he enjoys trekking down to Goodwood from his base at Middleham in North Yorkshire, and he was a happy man when Mister Cosmi won the Gerrard Richmond Stakes in tenacious style on the first day, though unfortunately the colt sustained an injury after the race which will keep him on the easy list for a while.

Johnston and the current champion jockey Kevin Darley were also on the mark on Thursday when Riberac led from start to finish to take the William Hill Mile in tremendous style.

Among the other high spots of the meeting has been a first Group level success for trainer Rod Millman, whose Whitbarrow landed the cantorsport.co.uk Molecomb Stakes, and the nursery double for Antonia and Chris Deuters, Alan Berry (having his first Goodwood winners and whose father Jack remains such a great fan of the Sussex course) and Frannie Norton with Rum Destiny on Thursday and Perle d’Azur on Friday.

It has been like the good old days for Luca Cumani, who used to have such a formidable record in the big handicaps here and who showed that his touch has not deserted him even though his numerical strength is not what it was a few years ago. He and Jamie Spencer teamed up to take the first race of the meeting, the Bet Direct Summer Handicap, with Kuster, and added to that when Askham won the melcollier.com Handicap on the Friday.

It was a remarkable achievement by Zuhair when he won Wednesday’s Charlton Handicap for the third year in a row, and his stablemate Flak Jacket, who was fourth in that race, went on to provide a second winner of the meeting for David Nicholls (he saddles two of the major fancies, Undeterred and Continent, in the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup today), when taking for the second successive year the Stewards’ Sprint Handicap, the race for those horses who did not make the cut for the big race, yesterday.


Rod Fabricius, Clerk of the Course and General Manager, said: “The highlights for me so far have been Persian Punch’s success in the JPMorgan Private Bank Goodwood Cup on Thursday and the Frankie Dettori double on Wednesday in the two Champagne Lanson-sponsored races on Noverre and Naheef.

“We have been considering the strategy that we want to take to secure new sponsorship for the Sussex Stakes and the Vintage Stakes and discussions with different parties will take place over the coming months.

“We have been particularly pleased with the way the racing has sustained itself through the week, with excellent levels of support for all races.

“The strengthening of the Tuesday card through the moving of the Group Two Gerrard Richmond Stakes worked well.”


Peak television audiences achieved by the BBC on the first three days of Glorious Goodwood, 800,000 (Tuesday), 1 million (Wednesday) and 1.2 million (Thursday), match last year’s figures.

This shows that Goodwood’s popularity is increasing in relative terms since the television audience is being generally spread thinner due to the emergence of more and more channels.
