When the stalls are positioned "low", stall one is placed adjacent to the stands rail. When they are placed "high", the highest-numbered stall is placed directly next to the rail on the other side of the course. Because of the large number of runners in the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, the horses are spread across virtually the whole course.

HIGH NUMBERS PROVE POPULAR IN VODAFONE STEWARDS’ CUP
High numbers were the order of the day at yesterday’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup draw which was conducted by BBC presenter Clare Balding at Goodwood.
The first name out of the hat was the Neville Callaghan trained Colonel Cotton and his representative opted for stall 28. The Newmarket handler won this prestigious handicap in 1997 with Danetime from stall five.
David Nicholls, successful in 2000 with Tayseer from stall 28, has six representatives in this year’s renewal and he nominated stall 18 for Funfair Wane when the four year old came out of the hat second.
Nicholls’ next runner Fire Up The Band, joint 6/1 favourite with Paddy Power prior to the draw, was fifth in line and the Thirsk trainer went for stall 29. The rest of Nicholls’ contingent Onlytime Will Tell, Pieter Brueghel, Loyal Tycoon and Plateau will emerge from stalls 16, 17, 24 and five respectively. When asked to select the draw for Onlytime Will Tell Nicholls said under his breath, “The winner.”
After the draw Nicholls commented: “I like to have all my runners drawn together so I can easily watch them in the race! Funfair Wane and Fire Up The Band are good horses but they all have to be good to get into this race which is often won by a Group class horse.”
The Roger Charlton trained Patavellian, the other joint favourite with Paddy Power, was another one to come out early in third. Charlton’s representative, Mike Cattermole the Channel 4 & attheraces broadcaster, opted for stall 27.
After Onlytime Will Tell came out of the hat 17th, it was interesting to note that every high number from stalls 16 to 30 had been taken, indicating that connections clearly believe this year’s winner will be drawn high.
Gerard Butler’s Compton Dragon came out of the hat ninth and the trainer immediately opted for stall 30.
Explaining his decision, Butler said: “Historically high numbers have had the momentum. Compton Dragon is quite a character and the rail will be an advantage. At least he can’t get hit from the right!”
In contrast the William Muir trained Material Witness will come out of stall one after Claude Duval of the Sun, representing Muir, opted for the lowest berth when the six year old was 19th out of the hat.
“William Muir took the view that if all of the high numbers went, one would be the place to be,” said Duval. “Martin Dwyer said that if we didn’t get 30, it was best to get one. The Clerk of the Course is telling us that there is no draw bias and rather than get 14 or 16 in the middle, if it was available it was much better to get one.
“We are seeking to emulate Soba back in 1982 who came out of one. Mind you, that was one of her 11 wins that season.”
PREVIEW OF VODAFONE NASSAU STAKES
The 1,000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes heroine Russian Rhythm, who has been beaten only once in her six races, bids for her third Group One success this season when she takes on seven other high-class fillies in the Vodafone Nassau Stakes at Goodwood tomorrow.
The filly, who races in the red, white and blue colours of the Cheveley Park Stud and is trained by Sir Michael Stoute, took a long time to come to hand this spring and at one stage it seemed possible that she might not even make the line-up for the Guineas.
But make it she did, and demonstrated her well being in no mean style with a length and a half defeat of the unlucky French challenger Six Perfections, who went on to an equally unfortunate and very narrow defeat against Yesterday in the Irish 1,000.
Then Russian Rhythm moved on to Ascot for the Coronation Stakes, where another exemplary display saw her confirm 1,000 Guineas form with Soviet Song, who had been fourth to her at Newmarket, and win by a length and a half.
There had been a possibility that the filly would next take on her seniors and male rivals in the Sussex Stakes yesterday, but connections have opted for her to stay against her own sex as she moves up to a mile and a quarter for the first time. Her pedigree suggests that she should get the trip and obviously her team take that view.
Among those of her own age who are taking Russian Rhythm on is Godolphin’s Hi Dubai, winner of the RL Davison Pretty Polly Stakes before finishing second in the Prix St Alary at Longchamp and then seeming to fine a mile and a half too far for her in the Vodafone Oaks at Epsom. Dropping back to a mile and a quarter may suit her well.
Cassis, winner of the Musidora Stakes at York in May, was then a creditable though never really dangerous fifth in the Pirx de Diane and last time was eight and a half lengths behind Russian Rhythm when fourth to her at Ascot. That mile was probably too short for her and her stable is in decent form, but she has a lot of ground to make up.
The other three-year-old in the race is Geminiani, who probably did not get the trip in the Vodafone Oaks and is closely weighted with Cassis on Musidora form.
As well as Russian Rhythm, Sir Michael Stoute will also saddle Zee Zee Top, one of the four older fillies in the race. She won a Listed race at York in May and last time finished second behind Hanami in Group Two company at the Curragh.
Sir Michael’s former assistant James Fanshawe is running the progressive Macadamia, who followed her success in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot by taking the Group 11 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket’s July meeting. She is a much improved filly and gets the ten furlongs well.
The French challenger Ana Marie, who is trained by Philippe Demercastel, has been showing good form this season, winning the Prix d’Harcourt at Longchamp and last time being a creditable fifth to the smart Ange Gabriel in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.
Place Rouge was a compatriot of Ana Marie last year but is now with John Gosden. She made a sparkling debut in this country when she romped home in the Lancashire Oaks at Haydock earlier this month. This opposition looks tougher but there was no doubting the style of her five-length success.
VODAFONE SPONSOR ALL SEVEN
For the first time since they became involved with sponsorship at Goodwood when they took over the Vodafone Nassau Stakes in 1985, Vodafone are suporting all seven races tomorrow, the final day of the Glorious Goodwood meeting of 2003
And they have been rewarded with a very exciting card, with good fields for every contest, headed by the Group One £200,000 Vodafone Nassau Stakes, which was previewed separately and in which the 1,000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes heroine Russian Rhythm is due to bid for her third win from three starts this year.
The day’s big handicap is the £100,000 Vodafone Stewards’ Cup (3.40), which Vodafone have sponsored since the great race was moved to Saturday from its traditional Tuesday slot ten years ago. One of Britain’s top betting races, it will once again be a furiously competitive affair with a maximum field of 30 runners and Fire Up The Band and Patavellian, whose respective trainers Dandy Nicholls and Roger Charlton know what it takes to win this prize, likely to head the betting market.
The day opens with the Listed Vodafone Fillies’ Stakes in which April Stock, who is in foal to Dr Fong and who was just touched off in the very first race of the meeting (Littlewoods Bet Direct Summer Handicap) on Tuesday, tries to go one better. Among her rivals will be Treble Heights, trained by John Gosden for star England footballer Michael Owen.
Another Listed race is the Vodafone Thoroughbred Stakes (2.30), in which Hurricane Alan, another to run well here on Tuesday, will try to improve on his fifth in the Group Two Lennox Stakes.
The final four races on the card, headed by the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, are hugely competitive handicaps, and 19 will contest the Vodafone Racegoers Club Handicap (4.15). Joint top weight Parisien Star has shown his liking for Goodwood more than once in the past and looks sure to make a bold bid to defy his big burden, while Sawwaah, who also has to hump 10st, is another who ran well here earlier in the week, finishing third in Tuesday’s Tatler Summer Season Handicap.
A field of 14 will go to post for the Vodafone Nursery (4.50) in which 11-times champion jockey Pat Eddery, who is to retire at the end of the season, will have his final Goodwood ride on Ticker Tape, and the 35th and last race of the meeting is the Vodafone Rated Stakes (5.25) in which 15 three-year-olds will rocket down the five-furlong course.
WINNING QUOTES RACE ONE
THEO FENNELL HANDICAP
TIBER ENDS TWO RUNS
Tiber ended a frustrating run for himself and for his owners Highclere Thoroughbred Racing when he got punters off to a flying start for day four as he took the opening Theo Fennell Handicap.
He had been second in his last three starts and in four of his five starts this term, while his owners had not struck gold for more than a month, according to their managing director Harry Herbert.
“It has been frustrating,” Herbert agreed. “This fellow has kept running well and as a result he has gone up a lot in the handicap without managing a win, but at least if you run in races like this the prize money for being second pays a few bills.”
The winner’s trainer John Gosden said that Tiber has gone up 16lb during this run of seconds, but would not subscribe to the view put about in some quarters that he is not totally genuine.
“I know he hung to his left at Newmarket last time, and that he did so again here, but he had been in front a long time this afternoon and he had, after all, quickened up well.”
There was some question of possible interference caused by the winner, but Gosden dismissed it as of no consequence as the e who had been impeded was on the retreat at the time, and the stewards did not consider the matter worthy of investigation.
“You have to take the gaps when they come at Goodwood, and Jimmy (Fortune) did it well,” he said.
Plans now are for Tiber to move up sharply in grade from this handicap level and try for a Group Two heat at Deauville next time.
RACE TWO OAK TREE STAKES
TANTINA COMPLETES HAT TRICK
Tantina retained her unbeaten record when gaining her third victory in the space of less than a month when winning this afternoon’s Oak Tree Stakes by one and a half lengths from Gonfilia. She had earlier recorded successes at Haydock and Yarmouth.
Winning trainer Barry Hills has not handled the three year old Distant View filly for long. “She’s been backward and didn’t come to me from Ireland until just under three months ago.
“She ought to improve a bit as the autumn goes on and I think something like the Challenge Stakes or the Prix de la Foret might be the race.
“Seven furlongs is her ideal trip and I wouldn’t want to go a mile at the moment . She has a very high cruising speed and a lot of early pace so we’ll keep her at what she knows.
“I brought her along quietly and I ran her at Haydock and I didn’t really know that I had got her when she went and won very easily. Then I went and ran her on firmish ground at Yarmouth which she didn’t really like but she’s quite useful.”
Commenting on Geminiani, who runs in tomorrow’s Vodafone Nassau Stakes, Hills said: “I’m looking forward to her running a big race and a bit of rain would help.”
Winning jockey Richard Hughes said: “She is quite decent.”
PLACED QUOTES RACE TWO
OAK TREE STAKES
GONFILIA PLEASES BIN SUROOR
Saeed bin Suroor was very happy with the display by Gonfilia, who was running for the first time since the 1,000 Guineas and beat all but Tantina in the Listed Oak Tree Stakes.
“That was a very good run,” he said. “The key to this filly is soft ground - I had hoped that there would have been a bit more rain. We gave her a break after Newmarket, partly because it has been hard to find suitable races for her, especially with the ground she wants.
“She was certainly keeping going at the end of the race and we shall keep her to distances around seven furlongs and a mile. I think this is the right grade for her.”
Owner Lady Carolyn Warren was equally happy with the display by her Tora Bora, who was up with the pace all the way and finished third at 20-1.
“She wasn’t given the credit she should have had for her win at Warwick last time and she has run really well, especially from her outside draw.
“The trouble is that it is very hard to find suitable races for fillies like her, but we would not be afraid of taking on our seniors and the colts in a race like the Hungerford.
“She did not go into training until quite late last year and I think there is still some improvement in her.”
WINNING QUOTES RACE THREE
WILLIAM HILL MILE
FAHEY’S FIRST WINNER FROM NEW YARD
Richard Fahey sent out his first winner from his new yard at Musley Bank near Malton, where he moved only on Monday from his base at Butterwick where he had built a burgeoning reputation over the years, when Lady Bear raced through the final furlong to win the £100,000 William Hill Mile by a length and a quarter from Faithful Warrior.
This was Fahey’s second big-race success at Glorious Goodwood as he won the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup with Superior Premium five years ago, and a first at the meeting for his stable jockey Paul Hanagan, whose status has risen hand in hand with the trainer’s.
Speaking from Thirsk, where he was looking after his runners there, Fahey said of Lady Bear: “She’s a grand and tough sort and this has been our plan for a long time. She has to have the right ground and we took her out of the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot because the ground was not right for her. It is great to have the first winner from the new yard and all the better in a race like this.”
Lady Bear belongs to Arthur and Kay Campbell, on whose behalf Fahey bought the filly as a yearling in Ireland. “I used to have a chaser called Miami Bear and I wanted to keep the ‘bear’ part in the name, so as she was a filly I called her Lady Bear,” said Campbell.
“It is unbelievable that we have provided Richard’s first winner from his new yard and I am chuffed to bits about that. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
“Although she was rather slowly into her stride I wasn’t worried about that as being slow from the start has become something of a habit with her. I knew they would go the fast gallop which would suit her and Paul stuck to the rails from his inside draw and just waited for the gaps to open up for him in the straight.
“I don’t know about any plans after this. We missed out on the Cambridgeshire last year and really, as far as this season is concerned, this race has been the plan for a long time.”
RACE THREE WILLIAM HILL MILE
FAITHFUL WARRIOR FINDS ONE TOO GOOD
Barry Hills just missed out on a second success in the William Hill Mile after Faithful Warrior found Lady Bear one and a quarter lengths too powerful in a tremendous finish. Hills was successful in the second running of this event courtesy of Strike Force in 1988.
The Lambourn trainer said: “He ran a great race and I’m very pleased. He had a good draw  and a good lead.”
It was pointed out to Hills by a member of the press that it may have been a Catch 22 situation as the five year old was carrying a 5lb penalty for a previous win at York, but he might have been ballotted out without the additional burden.
“You’re probably right but I’d sooner have a penalty than not. Just as long as they’ve won a race,” he replied
“He’ll probably go for the Bradford & Bingley race over a mile at York on the Thursday now. He never won a race last year when he wasn’t right but he’s back to his old self now.”
Ralph Beckett, trainer of third placed Nashaab, said: “He’s run the race of his life and I am delighted. Obviously the draw helped enormously but he prefers faster ground.
“I can’t knock the ride [by jockey Richard Mullen] or the race he’s run and as always he’s given his all.”
RACE FOUR GLORIOUS RATED HANDICAP
STOUTE OFF MARK AT GLORIOUS GOODWOOD
The competitiveness of the racing at Glorious Goodwood was highlighted by the fact that Sir Michael Stoute did not gain his first victory until the fourth race of the fourth day when Researched disposed of his rivals by two lengths in the rated handicap.
The trainer was not present but partner Coral Pritchard Gordon did reveal that the Newmarket handler would be in attendance tomorrow when Russian Rhythm runs in the Vodafone Nassau Stakes.
Pritchard Gordon said: “Kieran said he felt so good today from the moment that he went to post. The horse was really enjoying it and Kieran felt that he might have gone a bit too soon. But the further he went, the better he went.”
The winner received a quote of 10/1 from 20/1 from Victor Chandler for the Tote Ebor at York for which he receives a 7lb penalty bringing his weight to 9st 11lb.
The Danehill gelding was given an entry this morning for the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup. He is 20/1 for the last named event with Paddy Power.
Pritchard Gordon was unaware of any possible Australian adventure, commenting: “Obviously Australia is in Sir Michael’s mind at the moment but a lot can happen before then.
“It’s a shame that none of the Weinstock Family could be here to enjoy today’s win. We needed a bit of luck this week.”
PLACED QUOTES RACE FOUR
GLORIOUS RATED STAKES
WEIGHT TOLD ON RAZKALLA
“He has run a cracking race but he just has too much weight,” said David Loder after Razkalla had beaten all but Researched in the Glorious Rated Stakes.
“We are having a very frustrating time, that is my seventh second from our last ten runners, so it is not that they are running badly, it is just that they are not winning.
“The trouble is that horses like him are paying for their success earlier in the season and they have become too high in the handicap.
“I don’t think he will run in the Ebor. He has a lot of weight there (9st 10lb), and he would find it very hard in a race like that. I hope that I shall be able to have him as part of my team for next year.”
Darasim, running for the second time at the meeting and with a 3lb penalty for his success on Tuesday, was towards the back for a long way but finished with a real rattle to be third.
“There was a bit of Jekyll and Hyde about that,” said Mark Johnston, “but I am sure he would have been closer if he had seen daylight down the straight a bit earlier than he did.”
WINNING QUOTES RACE FIVE
TURF CLUB NURSERY
FALLON DOUBLES UP
Kieren Fallon followed up his success on Researched when Blue Tomato took the nursery in convincing style to complete a 39.5-1 double for the champion jockey. Fallon is now the leading jockey for the Betdaq Trophy for leading rider at Glorious Goodwood, this being his fourth success while Darryll Holland has had three wins.
“He is an improving sort and enjoyed this ground much better than he did the firm going when he won at York,” said the winner’s trainer Paul Cole.
Blue Tomato is named, not after some exotic nightclub but, more prosaically, after a Florida-based computer company.
Richard Hannon, junior, whose father trains runner-up Matt Blanc and fourth home Signor Panettiere, said: “Matt Blanc ran very well, he’ll run well and go close in lots of nurseries, he is sound, reliable and tries hard, and win will nurseries all day long.
“Signor Panettiere has hard a time of it with a wind operation. He’ll stick to five-furlong nurseries on ground like this and possibly six furlongs when it is like a road. Marysienka is a nice filly, who will probably go back to maidens on firm ground. She didn’t really like this ground.”
EBF TRUNDLE MAIDEN STAKES
PSYCHIATRIST TAKES MAIDEN
“This is a nice horse,” were the words uttered by Richard Hannon after Psychiatrist had won the seven furlong EBF Trundle Maiden.
“I’d just sold his half brother for a $1 million so I thought that I could give £15,000 for this fellow. I sold him to the owner, Mr Tooth, after the sale.
“We should have made more use of him at Newmarket when he was beaten by Barry Hills’s Fokine. They didn’t really gallop or go fast enough for him there when I told Pat [Eddery] to hang on to him and let him roll.
“Today it was the other way around. We won’t run him a lot more this season as he’ll be a lovely horse next year. We entered him for the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot first time out.”
Richard Hannon Jnr agreed with his father’s opinion that this would be a horse for next season, saying: “One mile two furlongs will be his trip next year I would say.”
It has been a brilliant week for Hannon, having taken Wednesday’s Sussex Stakes with Reel Buddy.
The trainer continued: “All my horses have run fairly well. Reel Buddy is alright but was a bit sore the following morning. That’s him though. Everyone was saying that it wasn’t a good race and the others didn’t go in the ground and I told someone that the owners are so embarassed that they’re going to give the flipping money back!
“Reel Buddy is a very good horse who has had so much trouble in his life. He’s won one Group Three when he really shoud have won two or three more.
“He’s got a Group One penalty now and we would probably sell depending on getting the right offer.
“We should start looking at his stallion career now and I would think that he would stand in Ireland.”
Commenting on Dandy Nicholls’ 12 runners in the concluding handicap, Hannon said: “I told Dandy that he would need a tractor and trailer to take the saddles over.”
WINNING QUOTES RACE SEVEN
STEWARDS’ SPRINT HANDICAP
NICHOLLS’ DOZEN JUST FAIL
Dandy Nicholls’12-strong attack on the Stewards’ Sprint Handicap just failed when Zuhair and Sir Don were beaten a short head and half a length by 7-2 favourite Undeterred, a horse whom Nicholls used to train.
“Dandy had him until the end of last season when the horse was becoming so frustrating that he virtually gave up on him and suggested that the best option was to give him a change of scenery,” said the winner’s owner Peter Savill.
“It was Dandy who suggested that we send the horse to David Barron, and finally he has done what he has always had the ability to do. At one time he used to wear blinkers for every race and he still has a (Timeform) squiggle, but we have left the blinkers off for his last three runs and he has run much more enthusiastically.”
Undeterred had to give of his best here to fight his way through various gaps, though Savill said that he enjoyed that battle, and then to catch Sir Don and hold Zuhair by a whisker.
“He deserved that,” added Savill. “He has twice been third in the Stewards’ Cup and two years ago he was very unlucky when the winner came right across him and cost him his chance.”
Speaking of the effect of the draw, Savill said that if he had had the choice he would undoubtedly have taken a high number for this race, and the belief that racing on the far side is an advantage on the straight course in a big field as the first six home were drawn 14 or higher and the first of the low draw runners was Kingscross in seventh.
Richard Hughes gave up his ride on Noble Nick after hurting his back when the subsequently withdrawn Zonergem misbehaved in the stalls before the start of the William Hill Mile. He was replaced by Eddie Ahern and Noble Nick finished last.
EFFECT OF DRAW AHEAD OF TOMORROW’S VODAFONE STEWARDS’ CUP
The jockeys were almost unanimous that a high draw was an advantage ahead of tomorrow’s Vodafone Steward’s Cup after they had ridden in today’s concluding contest.
Dean Corby, from stall six, said: “The far side had an advantage and were favoured at the end of the race.”
Keith Dalgleish, from stall two, said: “The far side had an advantage because of the speed earlier and they were six lengths up on us at one stage.”
Chris Catlin, from stall 15, said: “For me the far side is favourite.”
Pat Dobbs, from stall seven, said: “I had no chance from where I was.”
Adrian Nicholls, from stall 14, said: “You’ve got to be far side.”
Jimmy Quinn, from stall one, said: “You’ve got to be high.”
Ryan Moore, from stall four, said: “You definitely want to be high.”
Martin Dwyer, from stall ten, said: “It was hard for me to tell as I was beaten at half way. What side did the winner come from anyway?”
WILLIAM HILL MILE LOOKS TO
BE CRACKING RENEWAL
This year’s £100,000 William Hill Mile looks to be one of the most competitive renewals since the inaugural running in 1987. Today’s event is sponsored for the sixth time by leading bookmaker William Hill, has attracted a maximum field of 22 runners.
Indeed the 18 other horses who wanted to run were eliminated yesterday.
The Sir Michael Stoute trained Adekshan has attracted significant antepost support with William Hill, being backed from 16/1 to 6/1. The Mark Of Esteem colt was the three and a half length sixth behind Patavellian on his last outing at Newmarket in July.
If Adekshan does find his way to the winner’s enclosure, he will be giving Stoute his third success in this prestigious heat. The Newmarket trainer was victorious with Safawan in 1989 and Lonesome Dude ten years later.
Another horse who has been well backed antepost with Hills is Lago D’Orta, trained by Clive Cox, who is now a 12/1 chance having been 33/1. The three year old is seeking a hattrick following wins which include a smooth success at Lingfield last month.
David Hood, public relations spokesman for William Hill, commented: “I have backed Lago D’Orta but I am afraid that he has a bad draw in number two.
“A high draw particularly over a mile here looks very advantageous. If I were having a bet today, I would be extremely interested if there were any market moves for Wannabe Around in stall 19.”
The other contestant to have come in for money antepost with the sponsor is the Terry Mills trained Norton, who is 10's from 16/1. He found Macadamia six and a half lengths too powerful in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot.
Over the last 48 hours Unshakable, trained by Bob Jones, has been backed with Hills from 8/1 to 11/2. If Hood is correct, the four year old’s draw in nine looks none too promising but he looked unfortunate to go down by a head to Definite Guest when second to that rival at Newbury last month.
Today the sponsor has seen money for the Barry Hills trained Calcutta, who has been cut from 25/1 to 16/1. Hills was successful in the second running of this event courtesy of Strike Force in 1988.
The other horse to have been backed with William Hill today is Lady Bear, trained by Richard Fahey, who is 12/1 from 16/1. The Grand Lodge mare was sixth behind Putra Pekan on her last start at Sandown.
“The William Hill Mile looks a really competitive race,” added Hood. “The results at Glorious Goodwood have not gone our way with the punters having the best of the battle so far.
“However, we are relying on the results in the two big handicaps today and tomorrow, our race and the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, to level the book.”
DANDY NICHOLLS: A GREAT
SUPPORTER OF GOODWOOD
It was only five years ago that David “Dandy” Nicholls gained his first winner at Goodwood when Double Oscar was successful in the Charlton Handicap on July 29, 1998. Since that memorable day the popular Thirsk trainer has recorded 21 victories here, 13 of which have come at the July Meeting.
Today Nicholls sends out a record 12 runners in one contest in the concluding Stewards’ Sprint Stakes, the consolation event for those horses which missed the cut for tomorrow’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup. The previous record was held by Martin Pipe, who saddled ten runners in the 2001 Martell Grand National and a handicap hurdle at Taunton in January.
Nicholls’ dozen is headed by Flak Jacket, who is bidding for a hattrick in this competitive event. Last year the trainer gained a one, two, three courtesy of the eight year old and his two stable companions, Zuhair and Pax, who are both also among the ‘Dandy dozen’ today.
The previous year Nicholls saddled the first and third in this heat. Referendum was third but he is not competing today.
Nicholls’ is best known at Goodwood for his success in the 2000 renewal of the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup with Tayseer. The six year old received a brilliant ride from Richard Hughes on that occasion, winning by one and a half lengths.
This year Nicholls has six representatives in this great six furlong handicap. Funfair Wane was his first runner out of the hat at yesterday’s draw and the trainer opted for stall 18.
Fire Up The Band is seeking a hattrick and he will emerge from stall 29, while the handler’s other contestants are Onlytime Will Tell (stall 16), Pieter Brueghel (stall 17), Loyal Tycoon (stall 24) and Plateau (stall five).
Nicholls’ has also won the Group Three King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood with Rudi’s Pet in 1999. Seb Sanders provided the five year old with an inspired ride to justify favouritism.
His biggest success as a jockey at Goodwood came on Soba, the 1982 winner of the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup.

ON THE OAK TREE STAKES
Jonathan Horowitz, an 18-year-old student from Irvine, California, will be providing the racecourse commentary for today’s Oak Tree Stakes.
Horowitz, who began calling in the States at the age of 14, has commentated plenty of tracks, including California’s Santa Anita, Turf Paradise in Arizona, Lone Star Park in Dallas, Los Alamitos in Los Angeles, Canterbury, Minnesota, Chicago’s Arlington Park, Miami’s Gulfstream Park and Fairgrounds in New Orleans.
His first British commentary came in this race two years ago and he also presided last year.
Horowitz said today: “I enjoy doing this commentary because British racing is so different. This is more of a challenge, especially with 13 runners as most American races have a 12-runner maximum.”
Channel 4 and racecourse commentator Simon Holt, met Horowitz at Goodwood four years ago and suggested that he should contact Rod Fabricius, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course and General Manager.
Horowtiz, who starts at the University of Soutern California in the autumn, sent recordings of some of his racecalls to Fabricius, who was so impressed by what he heard that he arranged for the young American to commentate on the Oak Tree in 2001.
The Oak Tree Stakes marks the continuing link-up between Goodwood and Santa Anita’s Oak Tree Racing Association - see today’s racecard for more details.
GOING NEWS AT 10 AM
Following a dry night -- there has been no rain at the course since 9pm on Tuesday -- the going for the fourth day of the meeting is
on all parts of the track.
“The forecast is that there may be the occasional shower this morning, but that things will improve through the afternoon,” said clerk of the course Seamus Buckley who is still, in his own words ‘recovering from the brilliant day’s racing we had yesterday’.
“We have now taken down all the rails on the lower bend, with that from the six-furlong marker to the home turn having been removed last night. The rail on the top bend will be taken down after racing this evening so that there will be fresh ground on that part of the course tomorrow for the Group 1 race, the Vodafone Nassau Stakes.”
The temporary rail on the far side of the straight from the home turn to the winning post was taken down on Wednesday evening after the first two days of racing.
After today’s first race, the following jockeys reported the ground as being:
Richard Hughes: “Sticky.”
Darryll Holland: “The easy side of good.”
John Egan: “Slow ground which is not too bad.”
Keith Dalgleish: “Good ground.”
Martin Dwyer: “The slow side of good.”
Chris Catlin: “On the dead side.”
Frannie Norton: “The slow side of good.”
Stephen Drowne: “The same as yesterday. A little dead and a bit on the slow side.”
Pat Dobbs: “Good ground.”
Kevin Darley: “Funny ground and just loose. It’s alright for a horse that bowls along but if you have got to niggle them along they might wheelspin a bit.”
Not surprisingly, the William Hill Mile (3.15) has collared a vast amount of business in the offices this morning, with many of the 22 runners attracting support. For all his weight of 9st 10lb Smirk, a stable companion of yesterday’s marvellous Lady O Goodwood Cup hero Persian Punch, has been very popular and has come in from 14-1 to 9-1 with Victor Chandler and the Tote and from 12-1 to 10-1 with Coral. Norton has come in from 12-1 to 10-1 with Chandlers and Ladbrokes, where he is the best-backed horse of the day, and outsider Mr Tango has been cut from 25-1 to 20-1 by Chandlers, from 33-1 to 16-1 by the Tote and from the same price to 20-1 by Ladbrokes. The Tote has also had money for Lady Bear from 16-1 to 10-1, and that mare has also been popular on Betdaq from 20.0 to 14.0. That exchange has also done business over Wannabe Around from 20.0 to 16.0
In the opening Theo Fennell Handicap (2.05). Ladbrokes have had money for Tiber from 8-1 to 6-1, Coral have cut Zabaglione from 11-1 to 7-1, Paddy Power have reduced Black Falcon from 16-1 to 14-1 and the Tote have slashed Tawny Way from 18-1 to 9-1.
Devant has proved popular in the Oak Tree Stakes (2.40) and has come in from 10-1 to 8-1 by Coral, while Powers have done business over Lochridge from 33-1 to 20-1.
Darasim, who bounced back to form here on Tuesday, has been backed to complete a double in the Glorious Rated Stakes (3.50), for which he is at 4-1 from 5-1 with Coral, and in the same race Foreign Affairs has come in from 8-1 to 13-2 with Powers.
In the Turf Club Nursery (4.25) Betdaq’s business has seen Venetian Pride trimmed from 6.0 to 5.0 and Toronto Heights from 12.0 to 10.0, and they report that in the EBF Trundle Maiden Stakes (5.00) Secretary General is all the rage from 7-4 to 6-4.
Dandy Nicholls has an amazing 12 runners in the closing Stewards’ Sprint Handicap (5.35) and one of the dozen, Nemo Fugat, has been in demand with Coral where he is now at 20-1 from 33-1, while Kingscross, one of the minority in the race not trained by Nicholls, has come in from 16-1 to 11-1 with Powers.
