LADBROKES ST LEGER FESTIVAL 2010
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
WELCOME TO YORKSHIRE DONCASTER CUP DAY, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10


CROWD UP FOR THIRD DAY RUNNING AND 30,000 EXPECTED TOMORROW



Today’s attendance is around 10,000, 1,000 up on last year’s crowd for the third day of the Ladbrokes St Leger Festival.


This is the third day in succession that the attendance has been higher than in 2009.


Yesterday’s attendance on DFS Ladies Day at Doncaster came to around 15,000, an increase of 1,000 over last year’s crowd on the corresponding day, while the first-day crowd on Wednesday was also up by 1,000 as more than 6,000 people came through the turnstiles.


Doncaster Racecourse has had excellent pre-sales for tomorrow, Ladbrokes St Leger day, and is hoping for a crowd of 30,000 to witness the 234th running of the Ladbrokes St Leger.


While the County Stand and Premier Enclosure are sold out, there will be tickets for the Grandstand and Family Enclosure available tomorrow from 11am.


GOING REMAINS GOOD

The going remains good heading into the final day of the 2010 Ladbrokes St Leger Festival.


Doncaster’s Clerk of the Course, David Williams, explained: “I am keeping the ground description as good overnight. It is slightly on the easy side of good on the round course while the straight course is proper good ground.


“The forecast for tonight is not dissimilar to what happened last night. We are currently predicted to receive three millimetres of rain and then it should be overcast in the morning before brightening up in the afternoon.”

COMBINED TOTESCOOP6 POOLS TO REACH £1 MILLION TOMORROW

The totescoop6 bonus fund was not won last Saturday which means that, with a rollover of £92,436 in the win pool and a whopping £700,564 in the bonus pot, the combined total should easily surpass the £1-million mark tomorrow.


This weekend’s totescoop6 takes in races from Doncaster, Goodwood and Chester with the highlight undoubtedly the Group One Ladbrokes St Leger (3.20pm) at Doncaster where Rewilding will be a warm favourite to take the final Classic of the season and give jockey Frankie Dettori his sixth St Leger winner.


“The bonus fund has not been won since May and with over £700,000 in the pot up for grabs, there will be plenty of punters trying to win this weekend’s totescoop6 so they can have a crack at a big prize next Saturday,” said totepool spokesman George Primarolo.


Two of the other legs are at Doncaster, the Ladbrokes Portland Heritage Handicap (2.45pm) and the Eddie Stobart Park Stakes (3.55pm), which is the concluding race for the totescoop6.

FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES
POLYPIPE FLYING CHILDERS STAKES (GROUP TWO)

ZEBEDEE JUST MAGIC

The Richard Hannon-trained Zebedee made it six wins from seven starts when coming with his trademark late run to land the Group Two Polypipe Flying Childers Stakes.


“Due to his style of running he is never going to win by five lengths but he ran his usual great race and everything panned out well,” said owner Julie Wood. “It’s worked out every time with him except in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot when he couldn’t get cover.


“He’s smashing and he is such a nice-natured lad as well. Everybody loves him back at home and, overall, he is a perfect athlete.


“In the Norfolk, they broke to a wide field and there was no cover available so Richard Hughes rode his own race. Ideally he would like cover and he has managed to slot in every other race and managed to weave through.

“When he cruises through, Richard says that he has an electric turn of foot when he asks him to go.

“He is in the Mill Reef and Richard and I will talk it through before deciding but he takes his racing very well.”

Wood has 24 horses with Hannon, who has now taken the lead in the trainers’ championship thanks to this win. “It would mean everything for us for him to win the title because everyone is so fond of Richard and we’ll do what we can to help him.”

Winning rider Richard Hughes added: “I love him and look at the size of him - he’s tiny and I feel like a giraffe on him! He has got an amazing burst but he nearly pulled up in front because I got there too soon.

“I was telling Julie and Chris the other day that you wouldn’t hear his heartbeat at the start. He just hacks down and stands like a lamb - even though all the horses walked at the start for a good five minutes, he just stood there.


“You just put him where you want in the race and he just switches off. You just have to pick the right one to follow. They went 100 yards and split and I decided to follow Dinkum Diamond because I fancied him this morning so I dived right. I wasn’t sure of the horses on the left could take me on qucik enough.”

Hughes is in the running for the jockeys’ championship and said: “I’m going to give it a real go for two weeks and then see where we are after that.”


MORE FIRST RACE QUOTES

Julie Wood, owner of Zebedee who won today’s opener the Group Two Polypipe Flying Childers Stakes, has had 24 winners this year, six of them coming through Zebedee.


She also said: “The heart has calmed down again! What a fabulous race. I could see Richard (Hughes) coming over towards the stands’ side for cover and then he had to go it alone and take his chance.


“What a horse. Zebedee is very game and we will look for another opportunity now. He does nothing wrong.”

The victory also propelled trainer Richard Hannon into the lead for this year’s trainers’ championship from Sir Michael Stoute thanks to the winner’s prize money of £45,416.



DIAMOND AND PLANET COULD BE ASCOT BOUND

Dinkum Diamond and New Planet could now both head to Ascot for the Group Three Cornwallis Stakes at Ascot on October 9 after the duo finished second and third respectively in the Group Two Polypipe Flying Childers Stakes.


The Henry Candy-trained Dinkum Diamond kept on well in the closing stages and went down by just a neck at the line.


Candy said: “That was a hell of a run. I wasn’t totally surprised as he was not himself at Royal Ascot and got no sort of run in the Nunthorpe at York last time.

“Dane (O’Neill) said he got he got a bit crowded early on. He then hit a bit of a flat spot but was running on really well at the finish.


“He is a only small but is a horse with a future. He is something to look forward to next year.


“I will look at the programme book but he could maybe go with the Cornwallis next time. I think he will ultimately need six furlongs.”

A further three-quarters of a length back in third was New Planet and his trainer John Quinn was similarly pleased.


The Malton-based handler commented: “I am very pleased with him.


“He got swamped inside the final furlong but stuck at it. I am delighted.


“I think we will probably look at the Cornwallis now and then there is a race in France in early November which could be suitable. I think today’s race was quite a strong renewal - the form stacks up.


“He is entered in the Abbaye, but that is because you have to enter early for these races. We will stick to two-year-old races with him this year.”


Race 2 - Ladbrokes Mallard Handicap - Winning Quotes

PRECISION BREAK LANDS MALLARD

Precision Break caused a 20/1 shock when taking the Ladbrokes Mallard Handicap over the St Leger distance of one mile, six furlongs and 132 yards.


The five-year-old was delivered with a perfectly-timed run by Jamie Spencer to overhaul Jedi well inside the final furlong and had a length to spare over that rival at the finish.


Winning trainer Paul Cole said: “This horse was always going to win a big race.


“He has had a serious of silly little setbacks, such as spurs, but showed he was on the way back when he ran well at Chester last time. I fancied him coming into today’s race but he sweated up a bit when I was saddling him up which is not like him.

“I think he can go on and win another big race. He could possibly go for the Cesarewitch (for which he will incur a 4lb penalty to add to the 8st 8lb he has already been allotted) as he stays well.

“He was a good three-year-old but then came off the rails last year. It is good news for us that he is back.”

Paddy Power go 20/1 (from 33/1) for the Cesarewitch while William Hill are now 16/1 (from 33/1).


Jamie Spencer added: “Johnny Fancome fancied him to win the Chester Cup but he had a few issues at the start of the year. His first two runs were deplorable - we couldn’t find anything wrong but his boss said he scoped badly after his second run.

“His last run was a good one and he has good track form here. He is a big horse so I am sure that he will improve for his runs.

“He travelled very well. There was a very strong headwind and I tried to keep him covered for as long as I could.

“Dirar hasn’t got far to go on the ratings in the Doncaster Cup but I don’t think that it was a vintage Ebor and he has an each-way squeak.”


SECOND RACE PLACED QUOTES
LADBROKES MALLARD HANDICAP

SO CLOSE FOR JEDI

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Jedi is up for sale after finishing a length second in the Ladbrokes Mallard Handicap.


Owner-breeder Philip Newton sold a majority share in the four-year-old’s half-brother Warringah to join Chris Waller in Australia last year and he believes Jedi is an ideal candidate to follow the same path.


“I thought he’d got it today and I think if they’d had the extra three millimetres of rain that was forecast then he would have won because these Pivotals improve a lot for soft ground,” said Newton.


“With our race programme, this is the last mile and three-quarter handicap at this level for the season and he might have one more run. But he is for sale and I think he’s an ideal horse for Australia because he’s game and stays the trip for all the big races out there.”



THIRD RACE WINNING QUOTES
WELCOME TO YORKSHIRE DONCASTER CUP (GROUP 2)

SAMUEL NURSED BACK TO BEST

After missing two years’ racing due to a tendon injury, the John Gosden-trained Samuel put in his best-ever performance to land the Doncaster Cup under William Buick.


“He ran great in the Lonsdale when the pace was not even, it was all a bit stop-start, and if everything is OK we might look at the Prix du Cadran as long as the ground is not bottomless. We’d thought of going for the Prix Gladiateur but I’m glad we came here instead,” said Gosden.


Philippa Cooper, who owns and bred Samuel at her Normandie Stud in Sussex, had overseen Samuel since his injury in 2008.


“This is my best day in racing since Eulogy won the Whitbread Gold Cup, that was in 1999 so it was a long time ago,” said Cooper. “When he came back to me I thought he’d never run again but we gelded him and then sent him to Di Turner and it’s fantastic to be here today. To keep him sound has been no mean feat.”

Jockey William Buick added: “He’s been through a lot but he is really enjoying his racing now. He is a very decent horse.


“I love riding these staying horses because they try so hard and he is a real character.

“I thought before the race that the only way that I would beat Opinion Poll was by stretching him because I know that this fellow stays. He did that today although just idled a bit in front.”

Gosden is hoping for rain ahead of Arctic Cosmos’s run in the Ladbrokes St Leger tomorrow.


“I’d be a lot happier on good-to-soft ground and would like to see some rain tonight and then hopefully he’ll put up a good show. But I have to say the other horse (Rewilding) looks a class above and if I’m second or third to him I’d be happy. I trained the half-sister (Dar Re Mi) and I know how they improve with age.


“We are using blinkers because he’s like a child and just likes to play. They just focus him a bit.”



Race 3 - Doncaster Cup - Placed Quotes

HILLS AND PRESCOTT PLEASED

Trainers Barry Hills and Sir Mark Prescott were both pleased after their respective runners, Tastahil and Motrice, finished second and third respectively in the Group Two Doncaster Cup.


Tastahil, a 22/1 shot, was prominent throughout the two and a quarter mile contest and kept on all the way to the line to go down by a length and a quarter.

Barry Hills said: “I says in the racecard today that the horse is becoming temperamental but as you saw today there is nothing temperamental about him. All he needs is a bit of cut in the ground and a good solid gallop. He stays forever. The ground was just about passable for him today and he had them all in trouble about halfway up the straight.

“He could now go for the Jockey Club Cup at Newmarket or maybe to Longchamp as Sheikh Hamdan likes to target Pattern races in France. Of course, there is the Chester Cup for him again next year.”

A further head back in third was Motrice, a 4/1 hope, who was attempting to become the first three-year-old filly since Alleluia in 2001, also trained by Sir Mark Prescott, to land the historic prize.


The Newmarket handler reported: “I am very pleased. That is as good as we are.


“Lord John (Fitzgerald, Racing Manager to owner Kirsten Rausing) said that he thinks Alleluia is the only filly to win the Doncaster Cup in the last 100 years.


“Whether she stays in training next year, I don’t know. That will be up to Miss Rausing.”

Although she is currently on a favourable looking 8st 5lb in the Cesarewitch, Prescott said: “Miss Rausing does not approve of the Cesarewitch in the way I do! I would say if she does run again, it is likely to be in the Jockey Club Cup at Newmarket.”


Race 4 - Keepmoat “Delivering Community Regeneration” May Hill Stakes - Winning Quotes

WHITE MOONSTONE STORMS AWAY WITH MAY HILL

Godolphin is represented in tomorrow’s Ladbrokes St Leger by the favourite Rewilding and the Maktoum Family’s operation enjoyed the perfect warm-up to tomorrow’s Classic when White Moonstone stormed away with the Group Two Keepmoat “Delivering Community Regeneration” May Hill Stakes.


Partnered by Frankie Dettori, the two-year-old Dynaformer filly took up the running over a furlong out and had the mile-long race in the bag in a matter of strides as she powered right away to land the spoils by five lengths from Al Madina. She was returned the 8/11 favourite.

White Moonstone is now unbeaten in three starts, having followed up on her debut success over six furlongs at Ascot in July with victory in the Group Three Sweet Solera over a furlong further at Newmarket in August.


Successful trainer Saeed bin Suroor commented: “White Moonstone ran a huge race and is a filly I have always liked. Her last piece of work before today’s race was very good and she had gained weight since her last run.

“She has plenty of speed but stays well. I think that maybe 10 furlongs could be her best trip in time.

“Even when she ran the first time, she was calm and relaxed. She is the best filly in the yard and I was delighted to see her win so well today. She shows so much class all the time.


“We now have several options open to us. She could go for the Fillies Mile at Ascot in two week’s time if she shows us she is sound and happy, as I think she has earned the right to go for a Group One.”

Ladbrokes make White Moonstone a 12/1 chance for both the 1000 Guineas and the Oaks next season while Paddy Power go 10/1 (from 16/1) for the Newmarket Classic.


White Moonstone provided Frankie Dettori with his 800th winner for Godolphin. The jockey commented: "White Moonstone is like a supermodel - very tall and thin and gorgeous.

"She has still got to mature physically but if she can do that then she has definitely got a good future.

"I have not seen Rewilding since York but they tell me he is well. The St Leger is a Classic - I am nervous but I hope it goes well.

"I will try my best and keep my fingers crossed. I would not swop Rewilding for anything else in the St Leger."

Looking ahead to Rewilding’s run in tomorrow’s Ladbrokes St Leger, Godolphin’s Racing Manager Simon Crisford added: “There is five millimetres of rain forecast for tonight but the ground should be OK for him and it will be the same for all of them.


“I would say he has a similar profile to Classic Cliche, Mutafaweq and Rule Of Law, who were Godolphin’s better St Leger winners. He would be a better horse than Mastery (Godolphin’s 2009 Ladbrokes St Leger victor) but then I think this year’s race is a strong renewal and there are a couple of others that I think have a good chance.

“Rewilding had a hard race when he finished third in the Derby and we didn’t want to go dancing with him through the summer. The Ladbrokes St Leger has always been his target and he has been trained specifically with this race in mind.

“He has been fine since his Great Voltigeur win at York and I hope we will see the same horse tomorrow. If we do, he should take all the beating.”


FOURTH RACE PLACED QUOTES
KEEPMOAT ‘DELIVERING COMMUNITY REGENERATION’ MAY HILL STAKES (GROUP 2)

SMART AND DUNLOP DELIGHTED TO GET BLACK TYPE

Al Madina belied her odds of 66/1, but didn’t surprise trainer Bryan Smart, when finishing second to runaway winner White Moonstone in the Keepmoat ‘Delivery Community Regeneration’ May Hill Stakes.


“I shouldn’t have run her in the sales race last time but before that she’d been second to today’s winner over seven furlongs at Newmarket when we dropped her too far out,” said Smart. “We’re over the moon because she’s got black type now. I know that the Oh So Sharp Stakes at Newmarket would be dropping back to seven furlongs but if it was soft ground we might think about that.”

Trainer Ed Dunlop has high hopes for Musharakaat for next season after Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum’s filly finished third.


“She’s got Group 2 black-type now and she ran behind White Moonstone at Newmarket when the pace didn’t flatter her. White Moonstone looked outstanding and is the best two-year-old filly in the country at this distance.


“She could go for the Newmarket sales race, as she’s eligible for that, or she might be out away. But she could be very interesting next season stepped up to a mile and a quarter or a mile and a half.”


FIFTH RACE WINNING QUOTES
BRAKES FRESH IDEAS HANDICAP

AYR NEXT FOR HEARTBEAT

Irish Heartbeat booked his ticket to next weekend’s Ayr Gold Cup when winning the Brakes Fresh Ideas Handicap under Lee Topliss.


“That’s perfect ground for him and the lad gave him a great ride,” said Robin O’Ryan, assistant to winning trainer Richard Fahey.


“He needed a win here to get a penalty to get in the Ayr Gold Cup and he should get in that now. We prayed we’d get the rain here and the same again next weekend when we hope to be lucky with the draw. I’m not sure if Lee will ride at Ayr, we could have a few runners and it depends what Paul (Hanagan) wants to ride. Ayr has been the plan all year.”


ONE-DAY BAN FOR PROBERT

Jockey David Probert picked up a one-day ban following his ride on Fireback in the fifth race of the afternoon, the Brakes Fresh Ideas Handicap.


The stewards held that Probert had used his whip with excessive frequency and without giving his mount time to respond.

The ban takes effect on Friday, September 24.



Race 6 - Frank Whittle Partnership Conditions Stakes - Winning Quotes

FRANKEL JUMPS TO HEAD OF CLASSIC MARKETS

Frankel jumped to the head of the market for both the 2011 2000 Guineas and the 2011 Derby following a facile victory in the seven-furlong Frank Whittle Partnership Conditions Stakes. His task was made easier by the withdrawal at the start of Godolphin’s Farhh, who became unruly in the stalls.


Partnered by Tom Queally and racing in the colours of Khalid Abdulla, the Henry Cecil-trained Galileo colt cruised up to take the lead two furlongs out and sauntered away to win as he liked by 13 lengths. The winner was returned at 1/2, although there was a 30p in the £1 deduction on all winning bets due to the late withdrawal of Farhh.


Tom Queally said: “He was impressive. I made a point of just squeezing him along because he might not have learned a lot last time. I was easy on him on that ground, but I liked the way he quickened up today.

“It was a bit of a non-event but the manner in which he did it, you would have to be pleased.”

Henry Cecil added: “It’s a shame that the other horse (Farhh) wasn’t in it because we would have learnt a bit more but he is definitely promising. He couldn’t have done anything more - he was never out of a canter.

“He is in the Royal Lodge and the Racing Post but he is not in the Dewhurst. We will just feel our way and see how he is and what the Prince wants to do. I think that it is unlikely that he will be supplemented for the Dewhurst but we will see.

“He’s got a long way to go but the thing about him is that he gives you the feeling that he is better than average at home - he’s promising. It has been a long time since I had a two-year-old as promising as him.

“He’s got to materialise but I have had the potential three-year-olds, the mile and a half horses and this that and the other, but it’s been quite a few years since I had this sort of this horse. He could be special but he isn’t yet.”

Lord Grimthope, Racing Manager to Khalid Abdulla, revealed that Frankel is named after the late Bobby Frankel, the owner’s main trainer in the USA before his death in November, 2009.


Grimthorpe said: “Bobby Frankel played a big role in the Juddmonte operation and this horse was named by the Prince.

“He was the nicest yearling we had and it is great that everything has come together, as these thing don’t always work out.”

Frankel is 16/1 for both the Derby and the 2000 Guineas with Paddy Power, although totesport were obviously more impressed and go 8/1 about the colt for both Classics.


John Gosden, trainer of the runner-up Rainbow Springs, said: "She was just ready to run and I couldn’t find a maiden for her on a track that would suit her so decided to start her in this.


"The flat track suited her and she’ll run again in a mile maiden and somewhere and be a nice filly for next year."


SEVENTH RACE WINNING QUOTES
UNIVERSAL RECYCLING CLASSIFIED STAKES

GODOLPHIN COLT SHOWS WILLING

Godolphin’s Willing Foe looked a colt of some potential when easily landing the concluding Universal Recycling Classified Stakes under Frankie Dettori.


“He’s still learning and is still a baby,” said winning trainer Saeed bin Suroor. “He physically looked a much better horse than after his last race and we will find another mile and a quarter race for him.


“He could be better than a handicapper and we’ll keep running him, he could have two or three more races this year. I think he appreciates a bit of give in the ground.”

MOTRICE LEADS WAY

It’s nine years since trainer Sir Mark Prescott won win the Welcome To Yorkshire Doncaster Cup with the then three-year-old Alleluia and many punters believe lightning can strike twice today at 2.40pm.


The Prescott-trained Motrice was tipped by the Racing Post’s Pricewise service and the phones at Ladbrokes’ Rayners Lane headquarters were red-hot this morning with the filly trimmed into 7/2 from 9/2.


Ladbrokes offered guaranteed best-price on the Ladbrokes Mallard Handicap at 2.05pm and have trimned Mount Athos, another Pricewise selection, from 15/2 to 5/1, while in the same race Zuider Zee is 8/1 from 9/1

“We were guaranteed best price in the Ladbrokes Mallard Handicap so we have seen a lot of of activity there but undoubtedly the best-backed horse has been Motrice, who we were knocked over for this morning,” said Ladbrokes spokesman David Williams.


In the Brakes Fresh Ideas Handicap (3.50pm), the Mark Johnston-trained Take Ten is 8/1 from 10/1 while there has been support for two runners in the Universal Recycling Classified Stales (4.55pm).


Tepmokea has been clipped into 7/1 from 10/1 while The Which Doctor, trained by Jeremy Noseda, is now a 9/2 chance, having been 6/1 this morning.

The round course has been railed out since the start of the 2010 Ladbrokes St Leger Festival by four yards from Rose Hill to the straight, increasing distances by 12 yards in races over 1m 2f, 1m 4f and 1m 6f. This will be removed this evening to provide fresh ground for racing on Saturday.

David Williams, Clerk of the Course at Doncaster, reported this morning: “We saw just under three millimetres of rain last night and the band of rain has now moved over. It was an ideal amount of rain to receive as it has replenished the moisture we lost yesterday. I would think that the course will ride much the same as it did yesterday, although it may be a bit easier in places.


“We should see some sunny intervals as the day progresses and no more rain is forecast to arrive until this evening. The current forecast is for us to receive less rain than was originally thought tonight, with around five millimetres predicted. This should clear tomorrow morning to provide bright and sunny conditions for Ladbrokes St Leger Day.


“I was originally going to move the rail from Rose Hill to the straight last night to provide fresh ground for today and tomorrow, but the ground there has not suffered excessive wear and the rain has helped keep it in good condition. This enables me to move the rail just for tomorrow and provide fresh ground for the Ladbrokes St Leger.”
