ASCOT FESTIVAL 2002
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
THIRD DAY, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29


WINNING QUOTES RACE ONE
YOUNG VIC THEATRE CUMBERLAND LODGE STAKES

SYSTEMATIC ENDS IN STYLE

Systematic ended a sparkling second season in typically tenacious style when he fought back to beat Warrsan by half a length in the opening Young Vic Theatre Cumberland Lodge Stakes.


This was his seventh success of the year and Mark Johnston feels that is enough for him for now. “He has been on the go from the first day of the season and has now run 11 times this term; I don’t think he will run again this year,” he said.


Systematic looked in trouble when he was headed by the runner-up approaching the final furlong, but he fought back to regain the lead inside the final 100 yards.


“That is typical of him,” said Johnston. “I told Darryll (Holland) before the race that he never wins by very far, but that he is very tough and he will fight all the way to the line.


The trainer has an amazing record at Ascot where he has now won with one of every five runners he has had here during the last five years, showing a profit of more than £120 to each £1 invested.


“I really don’t know why the horses do so well here,” he said, “and I was staggered when I saw the return to each £1 bet. But for whatever reason it is the track seems to suit them all; the final uphill stretch seems to encourage them to fight back, just like Systematic did there.”


RACE ONE PLACED QUOTES
THE YOUNG VIC THEATRE CUMBERLAND LODGE STAKES

WARRSAN JUST DENIED

Warrsan, trained by Clive Brittain, found just Systematic half a length too good in the opening Group 3 Young Vic Theatre Cumberland Lodge Stakes, after stepping down from 14 furlongs on his last outing to a mile and a half here.


Brittain said: “Each time he runs a litttle better - obviously he gets a solid 1m 6f and in another year he could be a Melbourne Cup horse.”

Third-placed Frankies Dream, representing trainer Terry Mills, who won yesterday’s Group One Queen Elizabeth II Stakes with Where Or When, sponsored by NetJets, was finishing in the top three for the third time in succession.


Mills commented: “Frankies Dream is a good horse - he’s just unlucky and keeps finding one or two horses too good for him.”

Asked how Where Or When had come out of yesterday’s race, Mills replied: “Brilliant, he lost five kilos and the jockey said that he hadn’t had a race. I don’t know if he’ll run again this season - it’s up in the air and we’ll talk after today and decide.


“He looks like he’s probably finished for the year and will come out next season, but I’ll have to talk to Robert [Mills’ son and assistant trainer] and the owner.


“I think he’ll stay 1m 2f all day long and if he’d been nearer the rail in the Dante [Stakes at York] he’d have been there or thereabouts. The plan was always the Derby.

Next year I think he could definitely be a 1m 2f horse or a top-class miler. He’ll be a bigger horse next year”

A purchaser had offered a considerable sum of money for Where Or When before yesterday’s big race win.


Mills continued: “It wasn’t the money that we wanted - it was over a million pounds but we wouldn’t have had yesterday if we had sold him. That was worth a million pounds and I feel like Frank Sinatra walking around the racecourse today. People keep coming up to me and slapping me on the back and wanting to shake my hand!”

Mills said yesterday that he would hand over to Robert next year when he retires from training because he wants to see some potentially top-class two-year-olds on the course in the next few months. His juveniles could be worth watching as Mills added: “I’ve got a couple that were backward and need time - they’re nice two-year-olds.”


RACE TWO WINNING QUOTES
THE JRA LONDON OFFICE’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY CONDITIONS STAKES


STEP UP TO GROUP COMPANY
FOR CAPTAIN SAIF

Richard Hannon Jnr, son of trainer Richard Hannon, was in jubilant mood after Captain Saif had belied his starting price of 4/1 to see off his three rivals in today’s seven-furlong two-year-old conditions’ race by two lengths. This was his third victory in succession leaving him unbeaten.


“I think he’ll be even better over a mile and races like the Horris Hill Stakes (Newbury, Group Three, October 25) will have to come into the equation now - he’ll have to go into Group races now,” he declared.


“He’s a lovely colt and every time that he runs he is the underdog. Gala Sunday was odds-on against him last week and on his debut he was 8/1. He keeps improving and he’s one of the tallest two-year-olds that we’ve got.


“He did it very well while dad’s enjoying his Sunday lunch and he’ll be very pleased with that I’d say. Captain Saif was giving most of those horses weight and Dane [O’Neill, jockey] thought if he’d got stuck into him he’d have won another length or two, “ Hannon added.


Hannon also revealed that the East Everleigh-based team were waiting for soft ground for Nysaean who was taken out of the St Leger at Doncaster, but if he doesn’t run again this season it wouldn’t be the end of the world. The same goes for one of their top two-year-olds Tacitus.


The stable has entered Baron’s Pit and Mister Links for Thursday’s Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket. Hannon said: “Mister Links will run and he’s in good form. We’re happy with his last run [in the big Sales Race at Doncaster] when he gave them weight and that’s what did him.”


PLACED QUOTES RACE TWO
JRA LONDON OFFICE’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY STAKES

RUNNER UP “STILL A BIT WEAK”

“He is still a bit weak but he has run well and I think the race represents good form,” said Barry Hills after Weavers Pride had been outrun through the final furlong by Captain Saif.

And Mark Johnston, whose even money favourite Love You Always, running for the first time since being bought by Sheikh Mohammed after his maiden success at Hamilton, felt that the race confirmed his pre-race concern that the drop back to seven furlongs might not have been ideal.


“I think that showed that seven is too sharp for him, and he is still a backward horse,” he said.


“Not many of mine run in a crossed noseband, as he does, but he is still a a bit sloppy. I think he will be alright next year, though.”


WINNING QUOTES RACE THREE
RIGGS BANK RATED STAKES


AT THE 48TH ATTEMPT

Peruvian Chief finally landed a race on the grass at the 48th attempt when he ran on too strongly for Budelli and Trace Clip to take the Riggs Bank Rated Stakes, to add to his five successes on the all weather.


“I don’t know why it has taken him so long, but he has been desperately unlucky on the turf,” said his trainer Nick Littmoden. “This year, for example, he easily won the Stewards’ Cup on the stands’ side, which was the wrong side to be, and another time here he was just beaten when he was on the far side and the winner was over here.


“He has been narrowly beaten in three really valuable handicap sprints, but after he disappointed in the Ayr Gold Cup his owner Barry Maclean said that should be it for the season.


“But I went into his box a few days later and he bit my finger, so I knew this was not the time to stop him for the year.


“When Darryll (Holland, who was completing a near 18.5-1 double after his first race win on Systematic) came back he said that he could not believe that he had never won a big race.


“He said I ought to put him in the Abbaye, but I don’t think he is quite that good !”

THE RIGGS BANK RATED STAKES

BUDELLI CONTINUES IN FINE FETTLE

Budelli was just denied his fifth win of the season after finishing the one and a quarter length runner-up to Peruvian Chief in the five-furlong Riggs Bank Rated Stakes.


Budelli’s trainer, Mick Channon, was ‘at home resting,’ but Roger Stack, representing owner Mrs Roper, commented: “Take the winner out and he would have won. Although we feel six furlongs is his best trip, he looks a picture, he’s still got his summer coat and he’s a credit to his trainer.

“We’re thrilled to bits and although two furlongs out he got checked, I don’t think we would have beaten the winner. I don’t know where he’ll run next, it’s down to Mick, but I’m sure he’ll be running again after this. We’re pleased to be here.”

Dean Corby, Budelli’s rider, said: “Maybe over six furlongs he might well of beaten the winner but he’s run well again hasn’t he?”



RACE FOUR WINNING QUOTES
THE MAIL ON SUNDAY/TOTE MILE FINAL HANDICAP STAKES

CAMBRIDGESHIRE NOW FOR ZONERGEM

Lady Herries, the joint-owner and trainer of Zonergem, who won this afternoon’s Mail On Sunday/Tote Mile Final by three and a half lengths, revealed that her charge will now go for the Tote Cambridgeshire at Newmarket next Saturday.


The winning trainer said: “I was very, very nervous today but everything went fine. We wanted him right out the back and switched off. He missed the break but that was the plan and Jamie [Spencer, jockey] did it to perfection. I was so worried when they were in the stalls - I thought let them go. Jamie rode the horse beautifully but I said don’t come up the rail and he tried to.


“He was cantering really. Jamie said that the ground was a bit firm for him today, but Michael [Tebbutt, Zonergem’s normal rider] thought that he wanted firmer ground. He’s a very exciting horse.”

Zonergem was bought for 3,000 guineas at last years’s Tattersalls July Sales from the Juddmonte consignment. Lady Herries explained: “I like going through the Juddmonte horses and this one was supposed to make a noise - I’ve had success with those before. The vet said he was okay so I bought him. He does make a noise sometimes but not when he is fit.


“He passed a stalls test last Monday and will now go for the Cambridgeshire with a 7lb penalty [leaving him on a mark of 8st 6lb].”

Unfortunately Zonergem, who was cut by both the Tote and Victor Chandler to 14/1 from 33/1 for next Saturday’s event, will not be able to be ridden by Spencer again. The jockey told Herries in the winner’s enclosure, “I can’t, I’m banned.”

As Herries went off to collect the prize, she expressed her best wishes to Tebbutt, who is still in hospital after a bad fall at Nottingham on September 20, and outlined the part that the rider had had in today’s big-race victory. She continued: “Michael, get better soon. It was Michael who found out how to ride him, dropping him right out.”

THE MAIL ON SUNDAY TOTE FINAL HANDICAP

VERY COOL JAMIE SPENCER


Jamie Spencer waited until the stalls had opened before taking the blindfold off Zonergem who was last until weaving through the 27-strong field from two furlongs out to win easily by three and a half lengths.


The jockey said: “That is the way he has to be ridden. It suited him but all the praise must go to Michael Tebbutt (injured with a punctured lung, seven broken ribs, broken thumb and two fractured bones in a hand in a bad fall at Nottingham on September 20), he’s the one who has made him. Zonergem has obviously had temperament problems. It was unfortunate that Michael could not ride him today.


“It is a pity I cannot be on Zonergem in the Cambridgeshire (through suspension). He would be better on softer ground.


“I won easier on Magic Combination at Galway (Smithwicks Handicap 1999). This was a good race to win and it will help pay for a little bit of my holiday. I am probably going home.

“I’ve only got a suspension rather than being in hospital. It puts it all into perspective.“



TODAY’S CROWD

Today’s adult attendance was 13,339, plus lots of children.



PLACED QUOTES RACE FOUR
MAIL ON SUNDAY/TOTE MILE FINAL

DIGITAL POSSIBLE FOR CAMBRIDGESHIRE

During his long and distinguished career as a trainer Bill Wightman was very keen on the Cambridgeshire and he could still play a hand this coming weekend in the big Newmarket handicap with his Digital, who is trained for him by Mick Channon.


Digital, whom Wightman also bred, was staying on strongly into third place behind Zonergem and news from the stable is that the race is very much under considerartion for him.


40-1 runner-up George Stubbs is not in the Cambridgeshire, but his trainer Paul Cole related that the horse is very lucky to be able to race at all.


“He twice nearly died during the winter,” Cole related. “One morning I came out to ride out and there was blood pouring from out of his box and the drain was full of it. It was a horrible sight.


“He had developed some sort of infection at the back of his head and eventually it burst and the blood just gushed out. I thought he was gone, but the vet came and he recovered. Then he went and did the same thing again on another occasion, but he is still here.


“He is a horse with a very light constitution and you never know how he is going to run, though he is not at all ungenuine. I thought he was going to get swallowed up there, but he has run really well.”


WINNING QUOTES RACE FIVE
TOTE EXACTA HANDICAP

NUMBER EIGHT FOR SCOTTS VIEW

The amazingly tough Scotts View completed a 8.75-1 double for Mark Johnston and a 125.75-1 treble for Darryll Holland when he landed his eighth win of the season in the Tote Exacta Handicap. He was quoted at 12-1 (from 16-1) by the Tote and at 7-1 (from 14-1) by Victor Chandler for the Tote Cesarewitch, for which a 7lb penalty brings his weight to 9st.


But before that he has an earlier date at Newmarket as Johnston plans to run him in a Listed race there on Wednesday. “The first step up from handicap company,” he said.


Johnston continues to be amazed by the way in which the horse has improved all the year. “It is unbelievable,” he said. “He had his first win in a 0-75 handicap and here he is winning off a mark of 105. It is staggering how he has progressed, and on at least one of the occasions that he has been beaten there have been excuses for him.


“I hate to say that any one horse is the toughest I have trained, but he is certainly up there with them.”

For Darryll Holland it was what he called a “brilliant day, and so good to do it for Mark. He and I have had a very happy association, and I was delighted that when Kevin (Darley) went to ride in Canada tonight that Mark chose me for these rides today. A treble at Ascot is very special.”


RUNNER-UP VERY PLEASED

Tim Jones, racing manager for Highclere Thoroughbreds said of runner-up Contraband: “He has always been held up and Jamie (Spencer) did exactly as anticipated. It was a cracking run, beaten by a better horse. Scotts View is a hard nut to crack and it was no mean feat. He is a credit to himself.”



RACE SIX WINNING QUOTES
THE SODEXHO NURSERY HANDICAP STAKES

FIRST AND THIRD FOR HANNON

Richard Hannon gained his second winner of the afternoon when To The Rescue left it late to win the concluding Sodexho Nursery Handicap Stakes, and to round off a fine day the East Everleigh-based trainer who also saddled third-placed High Accolade.


Richard Hannon Jnr said: “Two lovely horses - the horse that came third is a very nice horse. To The Rescue is an improving horse and a nice colt.”

Winning jockey, Paul Fitzsimons, commented: “I didn’t want him that far back but he’s so settled and he picked up off the pace lovely. I thought that I might have left it a bit too late but he picks up off a slow pace - he really does.


“I ride him at home and I told the owner that I would switch him off - it worked out absolutely perfect.”

This was Fitzsimons, who is no longer able to claim any weight allowance, 22nd success of the year. He continued: “It’s slow when you finish your claim but winners like this with television coverage are fantastic.”


PLACED QUOTES RACE SIX
SODEXHO NURSERY
SO FRUSTRATING

“I am fed up with all these seconds, that is 26 of them this season,” said Sylvester Kirk after Secret Formula had been touched off on the line by To The Rescue, trained by Kirk’s former mentor Richard Hannon, is the closing Sodexho Nursery.


“We had a nice each way bet on her (the filly was returned at 16-1), but that is never the same as winning. She had come to win her race but just got pipped. But at least the horses have been running well.”

The filly’s owner-breeder Jeff Smith recalled how he won the race last year with Rapscallion. “He won by only a short head, so maybe this is someone’s way of levelling things up,” he said philosophically.


Talking of Rapscallion, Smith was was disappointed by the way he had run at Doncaster earlier in the month, though he has not given up hope on him yet.


“You are forced to wonder if he has not trained on, but against that he maybe did not stay the mile and three at Doncaster, and maybe he is at his best when the ground is very soft, as it was when he won here last year. We have not given up with him yet, though.”


GOING NEWS AT 10 AM

Following another dry night the going for the final day of the Ascot Festival remains


GOOD TO FIRM.



“The forecast is for a warm and sunny day,” said clerk of the course and racing director Nick Cheyne.



The temporary rail starting from the home turn and running until just before the final furlong marker will remain in the same position as it was yesterday.


O’BRIEN FINED £3,000

Aidan O’Brien was fined £3,000 after the non appearance of Rock of Gibraltar in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes yesterday. This is the statutory penalty in such circumstances -- 1% of the total prize money fund.


Patrick Hibbert-Foy, the stipendiary steward at the meeting, explained why the panel imposed the fine, which O’Brien accepted as being fair in the circumstances.


“We do not want to set a predecent whereby trainers can declare more than one horse and then say I might run one or I might run the other,” he said.


“It is not fair on other trainers or on punters, who do not know which horse will be running. We had a lot of calls asking us which of the two was going to take part.


“And then it looks a bit odd if the ground was not suitable for Rock of Gibraltar to run on, but it was satisfactory for him to work on after racing, as he did. I know that there is obviously not so much pressure when a horse is working, but people are entitled to wonder what is going on.”

Luca Cumani, who did not run Gossamer because he felt the ground was not soft enough for her, was not fined because he had said all along that the filly would miss the race unless there was sufficient rain.

“He brought the filly to the course and she was identified; he had always said that if it did not rain she would not run and everyone knew the situation,” said Hibbert-Foy.
