CROWD UP - ROD FABRICIUS REACTION


Rod Fabricius, Godwood’s Managing Director, was delighted to see an increased attendance for the fourth day of Glorious Goodwood, Friday, August 3.

BUCKLEY PREDICTS GROUND NO FASTER THAN GOOD TO FIRM FOR TOMORROW

Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course predicts that the ground for the final day of Glorious Goodwood tomorrow, Blue Square Race Day, will be no quicker than good to firm.


He said: “I am delighted with the way the ground has stood up on day four of the festival.


“The jockeys reported that the ground rode as per the official description of good to firm, good in places.


“I have walked up the straight and there is still some moisture in the ground.


“I would predict that the ground won’t ride any faster then good to firm tomorrow.


“The remaining temporary rail round the top bend will be removed after racing today to provide fresh ground for tomorrow’s Blue Square Nassau Stakes.”

BLUE SKIES AHEAD FOR NEW BLUE SQUARE RACE DAY

Bookmakers Blue Square sponsor the whole of Saturday’s card at Glorious Goodwood, and their first venture at the meeting looks sure to be blessed by blue skies.


The Met Office forecast for tomorrow is for ‘fine, dry and very warm’ weather, and with a red-hot card of racing and plenty of other Blue Square attractions there is every incentive to come to the Sussex Downs. Tickets are still available in the Lennox Enclosure, while viewing from Trundle Hill is free.


The twin highlights of tomorrow’s card are the £200,000 Blue Square Nassau Stakes, a Group 1 race for fillies and mares over nearly ten furlongs, and the £100,000 Bluesquare.com Stewards’ Cup, a handicap over six furlongs. As a bonus to mark the three-year sponsorship deal, Blue Square will pay out on the first five places in the Stewards’ Cup to website and telephone customers.


Kate Miller, spokesperson for Blue Square, says: “It’s a really strong card tomorrow, and every race is very competitive. We’re particularly thrilled with the line-up for the Blue Square Nassau Stakes, which has drawn the winners of nine Group 1 races.


“It shows how competitive it is when a top-class filly like Nannina is on offer at 6-1. If we get a finish like last year, when Ouija Board beat Alexander Goldrun after an epic battle, it will be a memorable occasion.


“We’re putting on plenty of other attractions before racing, including a putting competition on the Richmond Enclosure, a soccer shoot-out in the Gordon Enclosure, and a high-low card game in the Lennox Enclosure.”

In the BlueSquare.com Stewards’ Cup the sponsors report money for last year’s winner Borderlescott, who is now 14-1 from 16-1. The company has eased Fantasy Believer to 16-1 from 14-1, Mastership to 20-1 from 16-1, and Qadar to 66-1 from 50-1.



CRACKING BLUE SQUARE NASSAU STAKES IN PROSPECT

Tomorrow’s £200,000 Blue Square Nassau Stakes, the Group One contest on the final day of Glorious Goodwood, promises to be one of the highlights of the week.


Eight fillies go to post, with no less than five having already scored at Group One level. The race will see a rematch between the English and Irish Oaks heroines Light Shift and Peeping Fawn. At Epsom on June 1, it was the Henry Cecil-trained Light Shift who prevailed by half a length from Peeping Fawn. However, when the pair reopposed at the Curragh on July 15, on significantly softer ground, the Aidan O’Brien-trained filly reversed the placings to score by three and a half lengths. Tomorrow’s rematch on perfect ground over 10 furlongs at Goodwood is something to look forward to.


However, the two Oaks winners also face formidable opposition from the older fillies. These include Mandesha, trained in France by Alain de Royer Dupre. Owned by Princess Zahra Aga Khan, Mandesha won three times at Group One level in 2006 at distances varying between a mile and 12 furlongs and made a winning return to action this year in a Group Two contest at Saint-Cloud. Her latest appearance saw her go down by a length and a half to Mountain High in the Group One Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on June 24.


Last year’s Blue Square Nassau Stakes saw an epic battle between Alexander Goldrun and Ouija Board, with the latter just prevailing. Those two superb fillies may have now gone off to the paddocks, but the third from 12 months ago, Nannina, lines up once again.


Trained by John Gosden, Nannina won the Group One Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket in 2005 and the Group One Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2006. She won again at Royal Ascot this year, taking the Group Two Windsor Forest Stakes but ran a slightly disappointing race last time out when fourth in the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket, although connections feel she does not show her best form on the July Course at Newmarket.


Speciosa, the star of Pam Sly’s small stable, won the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket in 2006 but has not entered the winner’s enclosure since. However, there was a lot to like about her most recent appearance when she chased home Peeping Fawn in the Group One Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh on June 30, going down by two lengths.


There are three other runners tomorrow. Sweet Lilly finished fifth last time out behind Simply Perfect in the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket but has never won beyond Listed company. Similarly, Yaqeen has never scored in Group company but this lightly-raced filly, trained by Michael Jarvis, won impressively on her latest start in Listed company at Yarmouth on July 17 and was only beaten just over six lengths when sixth to Finsceal Beo in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket in May. Dont Dili Dali won a Listed race last year but finished last behind Yaqeen at Yarmouth last time and looks to have a mountain to climb.


LATEST BLUE SQUARE PRICES: Mandesha 9/4, Peeping Fawn 11/4, Light Shift 3/1, Nannina 6/1, Speciosa 14/1, Yaqeen 14/1, Sweet Lilly 33/1, Dont Dili Dali 100/1


Totejackpot to reach £350,000 at Goodwood

The totejackpot once again proved too difficult for punters at Goodwood this afternoon meaning that there is a rollover of £215,079 up for grabs on Saturday. All tickets were knocked out by the end of leg five.

Paul Petrie, totepool spokesman commented: “Goodwood has been less than glorious for jackpot players thus far but with nearly a quarter of a million in the pool someone could be celebrating come Saturday night. We would expect the pool to reach the £350,000 mark, although, with the BlueSquare.com Stewards’ Cup included, it won't be easy.”

The bet was last won at Ascot last Saturday


totescoop6 rollovers on the rise

The bonus chaser failed to add to his winnings last weekend when his selection, El Bosque, finished well down the field in eighth position. It was also a hard luck story for all those chasing the win fund with all selections knocked out by the end of leg five. That news means that both funds are in rollover mode with £66,602 in the win fund and £62,914 in the bonus for tomorrow, Saturday, August 4.

A single winner of both is expected to pick up a quarter of a million pounds.

Races are divided between Goodwood and Newmarket and include the BlueSquare.com Stewards’ Cup.

Paul Petrie, totepool spokesman commented, "With 83 runners, including 28 in the Stewards’ Cup, it won't be easy to win the totescoop6 this weekend but, with a single winner scooping £250,000, I am sure plenty of people will give it their best shot."

Race 1 - Coutts Glorious Stakes - Winner’s Quotes

MOON’S THE LIMIT

Purple Moon, a 440,000gns purchase from last year’s Horses-in-Training Sale at Newmarket, began to look worth something like that value when winning the opener on day four of Glorious Goodwood.


Winning the Listed Coutts Glorious Stakes recouped about £17,000 for owner Craig Bennett, but the horse is now on course for some bigger pay days, possibly ending later this year in Australia’s Melbourne Cup. In the meantime his potential targets include Europe’s most valuable handicap, the £200,000 totesport Ebor Handicap at York, for which he is now clear favourite with all the major bookmakers - he was set to carry 8st 11lb in that race, but would have to shoulder a 4lb penalty for today’s victory.


Totesport, Blue Square and VC Bet make him a 6-1 chance for the Ebor, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power and William Hill offer 5-1, while Coral rate him an 8-1 shot. William Hill has priced him at 20-1 for the Melbourne Cup.


Purple Moon tried hurdling after his purchase at the sales, and won a race for Nicky Richards, but his current trainer, Luca Cumani, said: “He just didn’t take to hurdling - Nicky said he looked a different horse at home, but couldn’t get it together on the racecourse and obviously didn’t like hurdling. He does like running fast on fast ground.


“The plan was for Jamie [Spencer] to challenge last. I told him there should be enough pace, he’ll travel well and take you there and it’s up to you to in the last couple of furlongs. I’m not sure about the Ebor. I said to Craig if he wins this he could go Group racing - the Geoffrey Freer at Newbury is one possible and if he’s a Group horse he should stick to Group races, but if Craig wants him to run in the Ebor I’m happy with that too.


“We will probably take him down to Australia later on to run in the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup. Craig is keen to have a runner down there, and they gave us a good reception last year when we had two runners that weren’t quite up to it - this horse is better than that.”

Jamie Spencer added: "He ran a smashing race at Royal Ascot on easy ground but he loves fast conditions.

"I've had a lot of success for Mr Cumani over the years. It's easy to ride for him, for the simple fact that he had all the hard work done for me. He told me exactly how the race would pan out. The only thing I did wrong was I was told to be the last to challenge, but when I set him alight he quickened to the front quite well.


"He idled a bit but I gave him a smack and he ran on. Hopefully, a penalty might not stop him in the Ebor. I owe Mr Cumani one - I've been placed about three times in it. He wants real fast ground this fellow and he'll get the trip no problem. It's good to get a winner anyway!"


Race 1 - Coutts Glorious Stakes - Jockeys’ Reaction to Ground/Placed Quotes

GOSDEN AND SWINBURN PLEASED

Trainers John Gosden and Walter Swinburn were both pleased after the opening Listed Coutts Glorious Stakes.


Gosden, who trained the two and a half length runner-up Imperial Star, said: “We were simply beaten by a better horse - the 3lb penalty did not make any difference.


“Imperial Star has run a lovely race. He’s maturing all the time and this was his first try at a mile and a half. I’m delighted.”

A further neck back in third was Stotsfold and his trainer Walter Swinburn said: “Adam (Kirby, jockey) said he just got checked and that stopped his momentum. He might have been a bit closer otherwise.


“I’m delighted though. That run has put him back on track and we can go on from here.

“Adam said it was still a bit dead out there today but hopefully the drying ground will continue as that is what this horse needs. He has plenty of options.”


JOCKEYS GENERALLY IN AGREEMENT THAT GROUND IS QUICKER

Following the running of the first race, the Coutts Glorious Stakes, the following jockeys gave their opinion as to the state of the ground:

Johnny Murtagh, rider of the The Last Drop, said: “Good to firm.”

Ryan Moore, rider of Hard Top, said: “Firm.”

Adam Kirby, rider of Stotsfold, said: “Dead - not good, not soft, not firm. Just dead ground.”

Neil Callan, rider of Ballinteni, said: “ A bit quicker. With the fresh strip of grass, the ground is a lot better. Perfect ground.”

Jimmy Fortune, rider of Imperial Star, said: “On the fast side.”

Jamie Spencer, rider of Purple Moon (the winner), said: “Beautiful ground. Good to firm. A little rough in places.”



KIRBY BANNED

Jockey Adam Kirby was banned for two days (Tuesday, August 14 and Wednesday, August 15) following his ride on Stotsfold in the opening Coutts Glorious Stakes.

The stewards held Kirby had used his whip with excessive force and with his arm above shoulder height.




Race 2 - Oak Tree Stakes - Winning Quotes

MAGGIE COMES GOOD

Wake Up Maggie landed the second race on the fourth day of Glorious Goodwood 2007, the Group Three Oak Tree Stakes, in great style by half-a-length from Costume. The winner came with a good run from off the pace and really quickened up well in the final furlong.


Winning trainer Chris Wall said: “I’m really pleased, Wake Up Maggie really deserved that. I would also like to say well done to George Baker (jockey) - I think that would be his first Group winner (it was his first Glorious Goodwood winner).


“She really benefited from a typical George Baker ride - he rode her with a lot of confidence.


“She has been in great form at home but I thought we had it all to do on the ratings, especially with with her Group Three penalty.


“The Group Three she won before (Chartwell Stakes at Lingfield) was only really a Group Three race in name and I thought today’s race looked very competitive.


“I would also like to thank Faye McClennan who looks after her. Wake Up Maggie is not the easiest horse to look after - she can have you on the floor - and Faye has done a great job with her.


“I think we will now look at the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury for her now. She is Group One-placed and we may consider the Prix de la Foret later in the season.


“It’s great to have another winner at Glorious Goodwood. It’s been a long time since I won the Stewards’ Cup (Rotherfield Greys in 1988)!”

George Baker added: "I was a bit unlucky the other day with Kingsgate Native (second beaten a neck in Tuesday’s Betfair Molecomb Stakes) so this makes up for it. She travelled very well and took me through the race.

"I just sat and waited. She doesn't do very much when she hits the front, so I took it up late on. She's done everything I've asked of her.

"I was lucky - we never really got crowded. We were drawn 18 and it's always a worry round here that you're not going to get a clear run through, but she's a strong travelling filly, and it helps because it means you can sort of pick and choose where you go.


"All credit to Chris Wall's team at Newmarket. They've been really good to me for the past few years and it's a pleasure to work for them. She's an asset to the team."



Race 2 - Oak Tree Stakes (Group 3)

COSTUME FAILS TO FIT THE BILL

A late surge by Wake Up Maggie spoilt what looked like a winning run by her year-younger rival Costume in this Group 3 contest for fillies and mares.


The John Gosden-trained Costume, a daughter of champion sire Danehill, led briefly in the final furlong, but went down by half a length as her rival quickened past.

Gosden was recently quoted as saying that three of his Glorious Goodwood runners would race in America after the meeting, adding that low prize-money in Britain was a factor. It seems Costume will be among the transatlantic movers.


Teddy Beckett, racing manager to Costume’s owner, Prince Khalid Abdulla, said: “She’ll be going to race in America next, but we haven’t decided where just yet.


“Richard said she ran a very genuine, straightforward race. She ran well and had every chance, but was beaten by an older tough filly.”

Sheena Collins, who saddled the third home, Irish raider Redstone Dancer, said her five-year-old mare has run her final race.


Collins said: “I’m absolutely delighted with her - the ground was possibly a little bit fast for her in this company, but credit to Wake Up Maggie.


“If the ground had been softer it might have made a difference. She’s given a great account, she’s in foal and that will definitely be her last run. She’s been a pleasure to have and of course we’ll miss her in the yard, but that’s life. Perhaps her progeny will come along and we’ll train them.”


Race 3 - totesport Mile (Heritage Handicap)

GAME SET AND MATCH

Third Set served it up to his rivals again today when adding a Glorious Goodwood victory in the £150,000 totesport Mile, the richest mile handicap of the year, to his recent triumphs at Newmarket’s July Meeting and Ascot’s King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes fixture.


Fast ground suits the Roger Charlton-trained four-year-old, who is owned by John Livock, an ardent fan of tennis.


Charlton said: “We never thought we’d go to Newmarket and win there, go to Ascot and win there, come here and win again. You enter big races and don’t expect to get in, and when we declared for Ascot I said to the owner I don’t think the ground will be right for him, but we’ll declare and get our money back. Instead he gets in, the ground is right and the rest is history. There’s a lot of luck involved.


“People have asked if we had a scheme, but we didn’t. He’s just a nice horse. We’re lucky because he only loses four kilos each time he runs, whereas your average horse loses about 10 or 12 kilos. He puts the weight back on easily, doesn’t seem to need much work and seems very uncomplicated, so since his last race he’s had a day on the walker, a day walking and trotting, a day cantering and a little breeze-up, then we turned him out in a pen and he did nothing yesterday.


“Our horses have come to themselves, but there was nothing really wrong with them. Over the years you accept you will get blank periods in the season. If you’re going to have a good time, it’s better in the second half of the season, because there’s a chance owners will notice and send you a good horse.”

Winning jockey Jimmy Quinn said: “When he came through he opened them up. I had to take the gap when it came and although that was half a furlong too soon I didn’t want to miss my chance. When I got through I sat on him, let him fill his lungs and then aimed for the lollipop. That was my goal.


“It’s nice to get a chance on a horse like this. I’ve been riding a long time, just up and down, up and down, but it’s a dream to get on a horse like this that can be so good twice in a week.


“"It's great isn't it? He's a jockey's dream and there's no snags with him. He's a beautiful big horse and we had an ideal draw.”

NO SERIOUS INJURIES IN GOODWOOD FALL

The pile-up one and a half furlongs out in the totesport Mile at Goodwood today resulted in three horses coming down and their jockeys being thrown to the ground.


The three horses and jockeys involved were Drumfire, ridden by Joe Fanning, who fell when clipping the heels of a horse in front of him and brought down Blades Girl, partnered by Ted Durcan, and Darryll Holland’s mount Uhoomagoo.


Ted Durcan walked away unscathed and is fit to ride Light Shift in tomorrow’s Blue Square Nassau Stakes, while Darryll Holland has a suspected broken thumb and Joe Fanning has been taken to Chichester Hospital for precautionary X-rays on his chest but walked into the ambulance.


The stewards held an enquiry and found that the Tolley Dean-ridden Azarole had interfered with Drumfire who clipped heels and fell, bringing down Blades Girl and Uhoomagoo. They considered the interference accidental.


Ted Durcan told Channel 4 TV: “The horse in front of me hit the floor and I was right behind him and unable to swerve around. So I went out over him and it was just a pile-up - one of those things. A bit unlucky but hopefully it is lucky with nobody badly injured and the horses all walked away.


“I could see what was happening ahead of me but there was no room. There loads of runners and the race had really started in earnest so everybody was looking for some room and the beaten horses were dropping back which is half the issue.


“I am perfect but I spoke with the physio and she wants to me to miss the rest of my rides today and put ice on my ankle. I will be here in the morning, no problems.”



Race 3 - totesport Mile - Placed Quotes

HUMUNGOUS DID NOT GET RUN OF RACE, ARGOS CONNECTIONS PLEASED

Trainer Charles Egerton was left wondering what might have been following the totesport Mile, where his 20/1 shot Humungous finished the three-length runner-up.


Egerton said: “I want to watch the race again as I don’t think we got the rub of the green - that’s Goodwood for you.


“He tried to climb coming out of the stalls and nearly unseated Ryan Moore.


“He’s a big long-striding horse and it took him a while to get going.

“The gaps didn’t come and then he couldn’t get through, but that’s the nature of the track.”

Matt Cumani, assistant to Ed Dunlop, said of 6/1 chance King Of Argos, a further two and a half lengths back in third: “He ran very well.


“He’s coming on every time he runs.

“He’s weak over one mile and would probably prefer seven furlongs.”


Race 4 - Richmond Stakes - Winning Quotes

SECOND JUVENILE WIN OF WEEK FOR NOSEDA TEAM

Trainer Jeremy Noseda enjoyed his second big two-year-old win of Glorious Goodwood when Strike The Deal collected the Group Two Richmond Stakes. Like Tuesday’s Group Three Betfair Molecomb Stakes victor, Fleeting Spirit, Strike The Deal is owned by The Searchers, a syndicate involving BHA Chairman Paul Roy and leading jumps owner Andy Stewart.


The winner, a 7/1 chance, was partnered by Eddie Ahern and showed a very willing attitude to stay on well in the final furlong and defeat Fat Boy by a length and a quarter.


Jeremy Noseda said: “When he ran in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot he raced too keenly.


“I think he would have finished a lot closer on his last run (finished third in the Group Two Prix Robert Papin Maisons-Laffitte) but I’m not saying he would have won. We were trying to hold him up but he just got too far back that day.


“The key to this horse is the ground - he wants fast ground.


“We will now have a look at Prix Morny at Deauville. If the ground is suitable, we could have a crack at it.”

Stan James offer Strike The Deal at 50/1 for the 2008 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.



Race 4 - Richmond Stakes (Group 2)

FAT BOY PROVING AN ATHLETE

The Richard Hannon-trained Fat Boy is proving a tough and consistent juvenile, as he proved once again when taking second in this Group 2 contest.


Going down by a length and a quarter to Strike The Deal, Fat Boy finished one and a half lengths ahead of dead-heaters Exhibition and One Great Cat.


Fat Boy, a son of Australia’s sprint star Choisir, is owned by Maurice Sines, a property developer from Wentworth in Surrey, who said: “I bought a number of horses at Doncaster yearling sales, but went to the breeze-up sale at Kempton [in February] with no intention of buying

“I saw this horse while I was standing with a very fat friend of mine. He weighs about 30 stone and this horse looked fat, so he liked him. I said I’ll buy him if I can name him after you, hence the name Fat Boy.


“He’s a wonderful horse and gives us so much fun. We’re lucky to be here and it would be great to go to York for the Gimcrack or France for the Prix Morny.”

Richard Hannon Jnr said: “He’s run well again having done the donkey work for the others. He’s hard as nails. Something got on his wick at Newmarket because he got hot there and that’s not like him, but he ran well in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot and has beaten the winner of that race today [Drawnfromthepast].”


Race 5 -Royal & SunAlliance Nursery

LOCAL RUNNER COASTS TO VICTORY

Coasting, who is trained at Pulborough in Sussex by Amanda Perrett, proved too good for his rivals in this handicap for two-year-olds, and provided a first Glorious Goodwood victory for jockey Jim Crowley.


It was a steering job for Crowley in the final furlong, as the son of Cape Cross, who is owned by David and Jennifer Sieff and Sir John Ritblat, scored in good style from Huzzah and Meeriss.


Reflecting on her winner, Perrett said: “I’m not sure what he beat today, but he travelled nicely and was drawn well, which makes such a difference here. He’s a bonny little horse.


“He wasn’t good enough at Royal Ascot [he was unplaced in the Coventry Stakes] but he’s won today and will have gained in confidence. Today he was back in the right company and he’s done it nicely.


“He’s out of a mare by Indian King mare, who Dad [Guy Harwood] trained. We bought this horse at Newmarket - he was a nice athletic type, but fell through the ring because he was out of an old mare. We went for a bit of value and found it.”


Race 6 - Turf Club Stewards’ Sprint Stakes - Winning Quotes

COX PLEASED WITH WEY - AND LOOKING AHEAD TO TOMORROW

Trainer was Clive Cox was very pleased with Pearly Wey’s victory in the Turf Club Stewards’ Sprint Handicap - the race for horses eliminated from tomorrow’s Blue Square Stewards’ Cup - and is looking ahead now to tomorrow’s Blue Square.com Stewards’ Cup where he runs Kostar and Out After Dark.


Pearly Wey, a 7/1 chance, stayed on well close home to deny the David Nicholls-trained duo of Joseph Henry and Indian Trail by a head and a length respectively.

Clive Cox said: “I’m really pleased Pearly Wey has won and especially pleased he has won down the middle as Kostar is drawn in stall 15 tomorrow.


“Pearly Wey was unlucky not to win at Newmarket last time but then he would have had penalty.


“We will worry about tomorrow now when it arrives.”

The first six horses home in the Turf Club Stewards’ Sprint Handicap were drawn: 9, 4, 19, 16, 14 and 28.



CROWLEY BANNED

Jim Crowley was suspended for one day (Tuesday, August 14) for careless riding following his ride on the winner, Coasting, in the Royal & SunAlliance Nursery.

The stewards held that Crowley had used caused interference to the third-placed horse Meeriss a furlong and a half from home in that Crowley had manoeuvred to the left.




Race 7 - The TurfTV Handicap

COSY WIN FOR MAROZI AS ROBINSON DOUBLES UP

Jockey Philip Robinson recorded a quick 39.5-1 double on the fourth day of Glorious Goodwood.


Having won the penultimate race on Pearly Wey for trainer Clive Cox, Robinson scored in the last for his long-time Newmarket associate Michael Jarvis, who saddled Marozi for owner Sheikh Mohammed.


Marozi holds an entry in the Group 1 Sprint Cup at Haydock, although Jarvis has no plans to aim that high in the near future. He said: “He got rather stuck in the mud at Windsor [on his previous outing] and I think he’s going to improve with racing.


“He was more professional today. It was very optimistic to enter for the Sprint Cup, especially given the mark he’s won off today [80], but the system is those races close early so you have to put them in.


“He could develop to a Listed horse by the end of the year and could be a Group horse next year. He’s a burly horse and will improve. He’s got a good attitude.”

Jarvis also saddled fourth-placed Rasaman, of whom he said: “He ran very well - I’d say that was a career best.”

GOING CHANGED

The going at Goodwood has been changed to

GOOD TO FIRM, GOOD IN PLACES

from yesterday’s good, good to firm in places on round course.


Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s clerk of the course, said this morning: “ We had marginal rain totalling two millimetres after racing yesterday evening.


“The going is slightly faster today, with a GoingStick reading of 9.0 (8.7 yesterday).


“We have taken down the temporary rail on the far side of the course from the six-furlong pole to the three-furlong marker which means a fresh strip of ground six yards wide in that area.


“The course is standing up well after three days of racing and there is still a great covering of grass.


“We are looking forward to more exciting racing today, as well as to the tremendous races tomorrow.


“The GoingStick readings on the straight course are almost identical, with the stands’ side being 9.0 and the far side 8.9.”


MOORE BIDS FOR SIX OF THE BEST

Sussex-born champion jockey Ryan Moore has six rides at Glorious Goodwood today - and the bookies are priming their defences.


Moore, born and raised in Brighton where his father Gary runs a racing stable, gave his followers a bumper pay out yesterday when kicking home four Glorious winners that paid an accumulated price of 1,979-1. His sense of timing, position in a race and strength in a finish were all revealed as he galloped to victory on Hi Calypso (3-1), Moorhouse Lad (10-1), Allegretto (8-1) and Docofthebay (4-1).


His rides today are: Hard Top (2.15 - Coutts Glorious Stakes), Selinka (2.50 - Oak Tree Stakes), Humungous (3.30 - Totesport Mile), Distant Charm (4.40 - Royal & SunAlliance Nursery), Roman Maze (5.10 - Turf Club Stewards’ Sprint Stakes) and Mambo Spirit (5.45 - TurfTV Stakes). He was due to ride Sharp Nephew in the Richmond Stakes (4.05), but that horse is now a non-runner.


When a jockey strikes a rich vein of form punters and bookmakers have to factor that into their calculations. Damian Walker of Totesport said: “We weren’t hit too badly by Ryan’s four-timer, although we had to hedge money back on Politeia, his ride in the sixth race, who we had at 20-1 in the morning but who returned an SP of 9-2. There’s no doubt Ryan was in outstanding form yesterday, and we’d be worried about Selinka today - she has a real turn of foot, but she is a test of jockeyship because she doesn’t want to get to the front too soon. Ryan could give her a carbon copy of many of his rides yesterday.”

Blue Square and Ladbrokes offer Ryan Moore specials today - Blue Square go 1-2 that he has no winners, 15-8 one winner, 12-1 two winners, 100-1 three or more. Company spokesperson Kate Miller said: “We’ll be watching Ryan’s rides today with special interest, and there’s no doubt some will be going off at shorter odds than would normally be the case.”

Ladbrokes offer 1-2 that he rides no winners, and 6-4 that he rides any winners. Spokesperson David Williams said: “If Ryan is as successful today as he was yesterday there will be no point in us turning up tomorrow. People will be backing him blind, and with a good book of rides why shouldn’t they?”


PUNTERS WANT MOORE SELINKA

Selinka, who runs in the Oak Tree Stakes (2.50) at Glorious Goodwood today, was the best-backed horse with several bookmakers this morning.


The fact that the Richard Hannon-trained filly is to be ridden by in-form Ryan Moore was not wasted on punters, and since she was also a Pricewise selection in the Racing Post she carries plenty of professional support. A daughter of Selkirk, Selinka won a Listed race at Sandown on her latest start.


Totesport were forced to shave her price to 8-1 from 10-1, Paddy Power now offer 8-1 from 11-1, while Stan James cut her to 8-1 from 14-1.


In the card’s opening race, the Coutts Glorious Stakes (2.15), Purple Moon has been in demand. Ladbrokes now offer the Luca Cumani-trained gelding at 15-2 from 9-1, Stan James and Paddy Power go 7-1 from 10-1, while totesport’s 8-1 was two points shorter than its opening offer. Perfectperformance, who also tackles the opener, was cut to 4-1 from 9-2 with Stan James.


The day’s trickiest race for punters appears to be the totesport Mile (3.30) which has attracted 19 runners (Ordnance Row will not line up), but that has not prevented some early market moves. Sky Bet has cut King Of Argos to 15-2 from 9-1, while Ladbrokes trimmed the same horse to 8-1 from 9-1. The same firm shortened Montpellier to 7-1 from 10-1 (15-2 from 9-1 with Paddy Power), and Supaseus to 7-1 from 8-1. Stan James report interest for hotly-fancied Third Set, who was cut to 3-1 from 7-2, and also for Drumfire (12-1 from 14-1) and Uhoomagoo (28-1 from 50-1).


Captain Hurricane has been a popular choice in the Turf Club Stewards’ Sprint Stakes (5.10) and was shortened to 25-1 from 33-1 with Stan James and Ladbrokes, and 20-1 from 33-1 with Sky Bet. Totesport report money for Don Pele in this contest, and shored up his price to 18-1 from 25-1, while Paddy Power cut the same horse’s price to 16-1 from 25-1.
