GLORIOUS GOODWOOD 2007
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1

CROWD UP



Today’s crowd came to 17,760, a four percent increase on the corresponding day in 2006. This follows on from an increased attendance on Tuesday.


Rod Fabricius, Managing Director at Goodwood, said: “This is obviously a very encouraging trend.


“We were concerned that a trend might be developing that racegoers were migrating towards the end of the week in their attendances at major racing festivals.


“We hope we can maintain this pleasing level of attendance for the remainder of the week, helped on by the fabulous weather we have been enjoying.


“It was nice to see the best older horses and three-year-olds in the BGC Sussex Stakes today with Ramonti coming out on top.


“Rio De La Plata was very impressive in winning the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes and we hope he continues the fine run of that race in producing classic winners of the future.”


BUCKLEY HAPPY - GROUND STILL GOOD

Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course expressed his delight with the state of the ground following day two of Glorious Goodwood 2007.


He said: “I’m delighted with how the second day of the meeting has gone.


“I think the ground rode as it was described - good - and the times today have certainly been indicative of good ground.


“The Group One BGC Sussex Stakes was run pretty close to standard time and this shows that there is still some juice in the ground.


“With the drying conditions,4 we could see good to firm in places enter the going description tomorrow, but we will keep the description as good overnight.


“After racing today, we will remove the temporary rail from the last three furlongs (from the three-furlong marker to the winning post) of the straight, giving a fresh strip of ground for tomorrow.


“That is a lovely strip of ground and I am sure it will ride perfectly.”

SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1



RICHMOND RICH IN QUALITY

Peter Chapple-Hyam has won Friday’s Richmond Stakes three times before, including two of the last three runnings, and Western Art looks a leading contender to follow in the steps of Polaris Flight (1995), Montgomerys Arch (2004) and Hamoody last year.


Western Art, owned by Matthew Green and Ben Sangster, looked a colt with some potential when winning the Listed Dragon Stakes at Sandown last time out.


John Gosden also boasts a good record in the Group 2 six-furlong event, landing back-to-back victories in 1999 and 2000 with Bachir and Endless Summer (who was subsequently disqualified).


The Newmarket handler has two chances of building on that record via Legal Eagle and Master Chef. The former, a 300,000 euros yearling purchase owned by Princess Haya of Jordan, gave a two-length beating to the well-regarded Binfield in a Newbury maiden last time out while Master Chef, who also races in Princess Haya’s colours, broke his maiden at Ascot on July 13 by four lengths on his fourth racecourse outing.


The Richmond Stakes is one of very few juvenile Group races Aidan O’Brien has yet to win and he runs the Storm Cat colt One Great Cat, who won a Fairyhouse maiden by a neck last time out.


The Brian Meehan-trained Sharp Nephew made an impressive winning debut at Windsor on July 9 in the colours of Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar, the Kuwait-based owners who won this year’s Vodafone Derby with Authorized and Tuesday’s Group 2 Betfair Cup at Goodwood with Tariq.


The Searchers - a syndicate comprising top jump owner Andy Stewart, British Horseracing Authority chairman Paul Roy, property developer Martin Myers and Lordship Stud owner Trevor Harris - landed Tuesday’s Group 3 Betfair Molecomb Stakes with Fleeting Spirit and they bid for further Glorious Goodwood success with Strike The Deal. A Lingfield maiden winner first time out, he most recently finished third in the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte.


Jamie Osborne’s juveniles have been in excellent form this year and he runs the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes winner Drawnfromthepast and Cee Bargara, who finished third to another of his rivals - the Richard Hannon-trained Fat Boy - in a Newmarket conditions event on Friday night.


Since winning first time out at Goodwood on June 1, the Barry Hills-trained Bob’s Surprise has run respectably in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and July Stakes at Newmarket while the Karl Burke-trained Roker Park finished seventh in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot after winning a Ripon maiden.



MAXIMUM FIELD FOR totesport MILE

A maximum field of 20 will go to post for Friday’s £150,000 totesport Mile, the richest handicap of its type in the racing calendar.


All eyes will be on the Roger Charlton-trained Third Set, who has made the cut for the valuable event by virtue of wins in a mile handicap at Newmarket’s July Festival and the competitive totesport International, run over seven furlongs, at Ascot on Saturday. Owned by tennis fanatic John Livock, the four-year-old Royal Applause gelding is drawn in stall 20 and looks sure to appreciate the drying conditions.


Another horse coming into the race in good form is River Tiber, trained by Luca Cumani, who prevailed by a short-head on his latest appearance in a mile handicap at Ascot on July 14.


Heading the weights for Friday’s contest is Pinpoint, successful in the Newbury Spring Cup earlier this season. The grand old campaigner Mine is also set to take his chance, with the nine-year-old surprisingly making his first visit to Goodwood. The evergreen Vortex, eighth behind Third Set on Saturday, also lines up. Other horses making a quick reappearance after Saturday’s Ascot race are King Of Argos (7th at Ascot) and Uhoomagoo (14th at Ascot).

Ordnance Row, trained by Richard Hannon, has been in great form of late with victories at Salisbury and in the valuable totescoop6 Handicap at Sandown on July 7 while the Stan Moore-trained Azarole has not been seen out since running at Nad Al Sheba in February.


Babodana represents the in-form Mark Tompkins team but is winless since the 2004 Lincoln and would surely prefer more juice in the ground. An interesting contender is Supaseus, trained by Hughie Morrison, victorious in a decent nine-furlong handicap at the Guineas meeting at Newmarket and last seen out when fourth in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot. My Paris, sixth in the Royal Hunt Cup, also lines up.


Champion jockey Ryan Moore will be aboard Humungous, who reappears after disappointing in the Royal Hunt Cup while Kerrin McEvoy, who was in such fine on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood with a double, takes the mount on Pintle, trained by John Spearing and a shock 50/1 victor on his seasonal reappearance at Sandown on June 7.


Unshakable won this contest two years ago and lines up again for small Newmarket trainer Bob Jones. Now aged eight, he is clearly no back number as he showed when landing a valuable handicap at the Derby meeting at Epsom and when third behind Ordnance Row on his latest start at Sandown.

One of the most improved horses in the field could prove to be Drumfire. Successful in the Group Three Solario Stakes last season, he made a promising reappearance when second to Traffic Guard in a conditions race at Nerwmarket’s July Festival.


Completing the field are Blades Girl, Kings Point, Killena Boy and Montpellier, a fast-finishing fifth behind Fremen in the seven-furlong TurfTV Handicap at Goodwood yesterday.


THIRD SET LOOKS A "HANDICAP SNIP"

Third Set is 3-1 from 11-2 with the sponsors after squeezing in at the bottom off the weights for Friday's totesport Mile at Glorious Goodwood.

He has a plum draw in stall 20, while 10-1 joint second favourite Montpellier is also well drawn in stall 16.

Spokesman Damian Walker said: "Everything has come right for this horse with the high draw and fast ground, plus the stable could not be in better form.


"Third Set has the look of a handicap snip with his 5lb penalty, but punters will not need reminding that plenty of handicap good things over the years have failed to deliver the goods.


"Montpellier looked desperately unlucky in the last race on the opening day and he gets a chance to gain some quick compensation having crept in at the very bottom of the weights."

SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1


Race 1 - Invesco Perpetual Goodwood Handicap - Winner Quotes

NEW FATHER DROWNE DIGS DEEP TO TAKE OPENER

Jockey Steve Drowne - whose wife Clare gave births to twins in the early hours of yesterday morning - earned his riding fee after making virtually all the running in the marathon Invesco Perpetual Goodwood Handicap aboard Secret Ploy.


“I had to ride this winner just to pay for them,” joked Drowne, whose two daughters - Alice and Emily - each weighed in at 5lb 7oz after being born just after 1am yesterday.


“But that’s one of the hardest races I’ve had for a long time - he came off the bridle a long way out and really dug deep. He was a top bumper horse last season and is a very good horse on his day. When you catch him right he’s a game sort.”

"He kept trying. I always knew he'd keep going. It was just a matter of giving him confidence and keeping him up there.


"I wanted to make it a good pace so they wouldn't pounce on him. Give him his due, the eventual second horse got the better of him two down but he went again and at the line he started to pull away. I must admit though, I thought we'd lost it when he was headed.”

Winning trainer Hughie Morrison was attending the funeral of Judy Gaselee in Lambourn and was represented by his assistant Hugo Palmer, who added: “The owners really need to be commended for their patience because the horse has had all manner of leg problems.


“But he’s repaid their patience this year by taking them to Cheltenham, Aintree, Royal Ascot and now winning here.


“Running on the Flat is slightly an afterthought when he didn’t seem to be in love with jumping. He was very light when he came in in November but he has just put weight on through the summer and thrived.


“I hope he trots up sound tomorrow after all his problems and I think all the big staying handicaps could be on the agenda now. Funnily enough we thought he didn’t stay when he came fifth in the Queen Alexandra.”


Race 1 - Invesco Perpetual Goodwood Handicap - Jockeys’ Views on Ground/Placed Quotes

AFRAD AND NODDIES CONNECTIONS HAPPY

Tom Symonds, assistant to trainer Nicky Henderson, expressed his delight with the performance of Afrad, beaten a length and a quarter in the opening Invesco Perpetual Goodwood Stakes over the marathon distance of two miles and five furlongs.

He said: “We are very happy, delighted.

“We have found the best way to ride him is to hold him up and give him plenty of daylight.


“The jockey (Michael Hills) gave him a great ride. He dropped his two stick out, but it is a difficult course to ride here and he has done well.


“I don’t know where he will go next. We could look for another long-distance flat handicap or he could go back over hurdles. He didn’t seem to like it when he ran in the Cesarewitch before.”

A further head back in third was Noddies Way and his trainer John Panvert was also delighted.


He said: “Luke (Morris, jockey) was upset that he didn’t get second but he just got blocked off.


“He has given the horse a super ride. his owner wasn’t too happy with the ride he gave the horse last time but I wanted Luke to ride the horse again as he needs a bit of knowing. He’s not un-genuine, just a bit of a character. He will race for but you just need to know him. If he was a person, he would be your best mate!

“We will continue to look at these sort of races for him and we could aim him at the Cesarewitch.


“The ground was fine today and he would also handle quicker.”

JOCKEYS SAY GROUND IS QUICKER

The following jockeys gave their view on the ground following the opening Invesco Perpetual Handicap.


Jimmy Fortune, rider of Full House, said: “Still on the dead side.”

Michael Hills, rider of Afrad, said: “Beautiful, good to firm ground.”

Tom Eaves, rider of Nero West, said: “Today it’s quicker.”

Luke Morris, rider of Noddies Way, said: “Just on the quick side of good.”



Race 2 - Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes - Winning Quotes

RIO DE LA PLATA ENTERS CLASSIC PICTURE

Rio De La Plata entered the next year’s Classic picture when putting up a superb display to lift the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes for the Godolphin team. The winner travelled supremely well throughout before hitting the front two furlongs out.


The Rahy juvenile was very impressive in putting two lengths between himself and the runner-up Lizard Island, although the winning distance did not reflect the ease with which the Godolphin colt won.


Simon Crisford, Racing Manager to Godolphin, said: “We fancied him when he ran first time out at Newmarket and finished second.

“We were expecting him to win last time out at Newmarket and he won well.

“He come out of that race well and we were looking forward to a big run today.


“Rio De La Plata is a nice mover and has a great attitude.

“We have one or two other two-year-olds that we also like but this one is obviously very good.


“He could go for the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster but there are plenty of other races we can look at such as the National Stakes in Ireland.


“On his dam’s side, he is stoutly-bred so I think he would stay further in time.”

Winning jockey Frankie Dettori added: “I think the six furlongs was a bit sharp when he was beaten first time out but the penny really dropped the second time when he won at Newmarket. I took him wide today and he quickened well, almost too quickly.


“We came here expecting a good run and he has done nothing wrong. He feels like a very good horse and it is a case of so far, so good with him.


“I think he should stay a mile but beyond that I don’t know. I’m sure a Group One race will be on the cards later in the season.”

Bookmakers rate Rio De La Plata at 8/1 (totesport, William Hill, Paddy Power), 10/1 (Stan James, Coral) and 14/1 (Ladbrokes) for the 2008 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.”


SHEIKH MOHAMMED INTERVIEWED

Sheikh Mohammed, speaking on Channel 4 after Rio De La Plata won the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes, said: “He’s a very good horse.


“Frankie went soon on him and was in front for a long time.”

Answering a question from Channel 4 presenter Alastair Down about Godolphin’s critics, Sheikh Mohammed replied: “This is a free country and you can argue if you want. But people and I have different ideas. I have a great team and I think my team is the best team in the world - I am very happy with them.”

Asked about Ramonti, the Godolphin founder and driving force said: “He’s well and you saw him last time and we just hope today.”

Responding to a question about the new racecourse being built in Dubai, Meydan, and whether he was thinking of having a big autumn meeting there, in addition to the Dubai World Cup in late March, Sheikh Mohammed said: “Meydan will not only be the best racecourse, with the best stand, but will also have a lot of other facilities within it. We are thinking of stepping the racing up there.


“We are thinking about it but we are trying to bring festivals and racing there onto the market.

“It will be ready very soon. Not for next year’s Dubai World Cup but after that we will be in Meydan.”
SECOND RACE PLACED QUOTES
VEUVE CLICQUOT VINTAGE STAKES (GROUP 2)

LIZARD HAS TO GIVE SECOND BEST

The Aidan O’Brien-trained Lizard Island trailed in two lengths behind the impressive Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes winner Rio De La Plata but his connections were far from disheartened.


“He’ll have learned a lot from that and ran a grand race,” said O’Brien. “I’d have to be happy with that.”

Donegal, trained by Andrew Balding, was a further four lengths back in third. “We’re delighted with how he ran and we’ll save him for an autumn campaign now. There a few races for him later in the season, including a couple of possible targets in France.”


THIRD RACE WINNING QUOTES
BGC SUSSEX STAKES (GROUP 1)

RAMONTI SEALS BLUE-LETTER DAY FOR GODOLOPHIN

Ramonti held off the late challenge of Excellent Art to take the Group 1 BGC Sussex Stakes and complete a memorable big-race double for Godolphin, following Rio De La Planta’s victory in the Group 2 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.


Ramonti had been Godolphin’s first British Group 1 winner since August 2005 when winning the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in June and trainer Saeed bin Suroor was delighted with the stable’s return to form.


“Our horses are flying now and I’m really pleased with them,” said bin Suroor. “After his last piece of work, he was fresh and kicking and I thought he would run a big race today.


“He worked nicely when we had him in Dubai but he was a different horse as soon as he worked on grass when he came to Newmarket. I talked to Simon (Crisford) and said I thought we should go to a Group 1 so we went for the Lockinge.


“There was a question mark about whether we went there but after he finished second we said we’ll keep him to that company.


“He’s a very honest horse who gives everything, which is what you need in these races.


“Hopefully, we can have some fun with him next year and if he stays sound and healthy I hope he’ll stay in training next season. If he’s alright after this then the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Ascot, September 29) is a likely target.”

Godolphin’s racing manager Simon Crisford added: “We’re delighted, especially as he has been holding his form so well.

“I think he will get a mile and a quarter and I’d imagine we’ll keep him to a mile for the QEII though. He hit the front from a long way out today and was always there for late chaser to try and take him on.”

Frankie Dettori treated racegoers to a flying dismount after landing the 7.9/1 double and was in jubilant mood after scoring on the Italian-bred Ramonti.


“Come on the Italians! It was a really good effort and he’s won two Group 1s in England now so I don’t think you can improve on that,” said Dettori. “He’s a real fighter which counts for a lot.


“I’ve been away for two weeks and had a great time with my family but I’ve missed this enormously - the racetrack is where I want to be.


“I had great hopes for today. This year we have been a bit light on quality but there is nothing you can do - we can only do what we can with the horses we have got.


“Ramonti has proved a model of consistency during his career with us and he showed that the Queen Anne is not a fluke.


“It was a very strong race today and I didn’t want it to turn into a sprint so I said that anyone with the legs to do it could try and get past me.”


Race 3 - BGC Sussex Stakes - Placed Quotes

O’BRIEN, STOUTE AND DE KOCK PLEASED

Trainers Aidan O’Brien, Sir Michael Stoute and Mike de Kock expressed their satisfaction after their charges had finished second, third and fourth respectively in the Group One BGC Sussex Stakes.


Excellent Art, 15/8 favourite, was finishing like a train to take second, beaten just a head by the winner Ramonti.


Aidan O’Brien said: “We are delighted. He has run a great race.


“He was getting there and closing with every stride.


“That was his first time against older horses and it was a proper run race. He will have learnt a lot today, he has never been as quick as that in his life.


“All the top mile races are open to him. He stays a mile well.”

Jeremy was a further length and three quarters back in third and his trainer Sir Michael Stoute said: “That was another good, sound performance from Jeremy.


“I am very happy with him.”

South African challenger Asiatic Boy ran a great race to finish fourth on his first start in Britain and his trainer Mike de Kock was pleased.


He said: “That was a satisfactory run after four months off the track.


“I think the lack of experience and the lack of a recent run counted against him today.

“He will improve for today.


“You also have to remember that was his first run on turf today. It is a very different way of running to the dirt which he is used to - we can’t complain.


“I will have to discuss it with his owner (Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa) but I would think he will go for the Juddmonte International now. That was always the plan and I don’t see any reason why we should change it.”


MOORE BANNNED

Jockey Ryan Moore picked up a one-day ban (Sunday, August 12), following his ride on Jeremy in the BGC Sussex Stakes. The stewards held he had used his whip with excessive frequency.





Race 4 - BGC Heritage Handicap - Winning Quotes

REGAL FLUSH GETS THE BREAKS

Regal Flush benefited from a superb Ryan Moore ride to lift the £85,000 BGC Handicap, run over a mile and a half, in the colours of Cheveley Park Stud.


The Sir Michael Stoute-trained three-year-old looked an unlikely winner entering the final furlong but the gaps appeared and he showed tremendous acceleration to get up and deny Camps Bay by three-quarters-of-a-length for a 14/1 success.


John Marsh, representing Cheveley Park Stud, said: “We are thrilled.


“At Goodwood, you need luck.


“The doors kept closing, but Ryan Moore has given him a great ride and managed to get through.


“Regal Flush has always promised to be nice horse and he did it well today.


“He had no sort of run when he ran at Newbury and then he hated it at Epsom last time.


“Sir Michael Stoute has taken his time with this horse and it has paid dividends.


“I don’t know where we will go from here. We will take it one step at a time with him.”

Ryan Moore added: "He had a bad draw and the boss said just take a chance on him. They went a good pace and I probably took a few too many chances.

"He was really enjoying running in and out of them and he's a fast horse so I thought we'd keep him doing that.


"He's a horse who worked very well as a two-year-old and we thought he was going to be quite nice. He's proven a bit disappointing up to now but I don't mind if they come good on a day like today."


FIFTH RACE WINNING QUOTES
WEATHERBYS BANK FILLIES’ HANDICAP

FONGS UBERALLES

The German-owned Fongs Gazelle gave trainer Mark Johnston his first winner at this year’s Glorious Goodwood meeting when winning the Weatherbys Bank Fillies’ Handicap.


The winner is owned by the brothers Christoph and Johannes Wachter from near Heidelberg, who have been coming to Goodwood, where they are members, since 1995 and first contacted Johnston about owning a horse after seeing Double Trigger beat Double Eclipse in the Goodwood Cup.


“I’m off the cold trainer’s list now!” said Johnston. “I always knew the owners would be at Goodwood today although I have to say I thought the Saturday race over 1m 3f would be the most obvious target for this horse.


“But since they were here I thought a bird in the hand is worth a bird in the bush and we might as well try and run in both races since they are 72 hours apart and thank goodness not 24 hours.”

Several trainers have not been speaking to racing television broadcasters today as a protest on the anniversary of 48-hour declarations being introduced and Johnston is firmly behind them.


“It just filtered through that this is the anniversary of 48-hour declarations and we’ve all had enough,” said Johnston. “(Racing UK executive chairman) Simon Bazalgette’s comments in the paper have just added insult to injury - to suggest we’re standing in the way of commercial progress when he’s failing to sell the product and get money for it. We’ve had enough of being blamed for what has been an extremely bad job.


“As far as I’m concerned (the boycott) will go on as far as I see something happening - until we see some money or get a return to 24-hour decs. We’ve got to do something - I can’t explain how annoying it is to see in the press Simon Bazalgette blaming us for standing in the way of commercial progress when we’re £5.5 million down in levy.

“The forecasters have failed to reach the targets, not us - we didn’t set any targets so they are failing to make their targets and then dare to accuse us of standing in the way in progress.


“It would be fantastic if Racing UK and Attheraces stand up and realise that we are the players and the ones that count - not the people in Hong Kong. Fans might start screaming - let’s have Mr Bazalgette stand up and say he accepts this is wrong and that it’s a problem. Stuff this commercial confidentiality and show us a contract that shows we’ll get money for it and we’ll be right behind him.

“We were very fast bringing in 48-hour decs, I know because I went to the BHB board meeting where it was decided. We said all along this will hurt racing. It’s 20 years I’ve been training and this is the first time you guys (Racing UK) have told us we matter.


“We were here before Racing UK and we were here before TurfTV and we’re fed up of supporting something that doesn’t support us. Chatham Islands’s not running in the next race when we have two at home that could have run.


“It’s costing me. I paid for the vet’s certificate and plating for Chatham Islands.“


Race 6 - Links Of London Maiden Fillies’ Stakes - Winning Quotes

FASHION ROCKS ALL THE WAY

Fashion Rocks put up a gutsy display to land the Links Of London Maiden Fillies’ Stakes under Jimmy Fortune.


The Brian Meehan-trained two-year-old filly stayed on determinedly in the final furlong to record a short-head success over Royal Confidence.


Brian Meehan said: “I am delighted.


“Jimmy said he probably gave her a bit too much daylight today and that he would hold her up in a better race.


“We will look at stepping her to stakes company now. I think she would stay seven furlongs.


“It has been a difficult year with the two-year-olds and we will just play it by ear where we go with her now.


“I think she is a really nice filly.”


SEVENTH RACE WINNING QUOTES
KENNELS EBF CLASSIFIED STAKES

LAA RAYB COMPLETES DOUBLE FOR JOHNSTON

Trainer Mark Johnston sealed a 142/1 double when Laa Rayb returned to form to take the concluding Kennels EBF Classified Stakes.


“I thought after his first couple of runs that he was going to be a real good horse and gave him some big entries but it didn’t materialise and he’s been a bit in and out since,” said Johnston.

“There have been some real disappointments and no real excuses - I put a cross-noseband on him at Sandown and didn’t seem to face it so we took it off next time. But it was back on today so it’s hard to know whether it makes a difference

“He would have been declared for Friday here (if there had been 24-hour declarations) but I don’t know if he’d have got in. I’m not sure where we’ll go now.”

ZERO TOLERANCE REGARDING TICKET TOUTS


On Tuesday, July 31, Goodwood Racecourse denied entry to those people with tickets purchased from touts outside the racecourse.


John Thompson, Racecourse Manager, said: “We have taken a zero tolerance approach towards touts, as we announced we would do before the meeting.


"Goodwood is determined to take a vigilant and robust stance towards the fraudulent handling of tickets.”

On July 26, Goodwood issued a statement declaring: “Goodwood Racecourse would like to warn racegoers to be vigilant and remind them that all badges or tickets must be bought from an authorised source in order to guarantee admittance.

“If racegoers are seen to be dealing with ticket touts, it will invalidate their badges and tickets.”
