DOUBLE UP FOR CARROLL

 

For the second year in succession, Tony Carroll saddled the winner of the finale on Glorious Goodwood’s opening day. Last year it was 22/1 shot Time Medicean, this time Tidal’s Baby, at 25/1, took the Mobile at bet365 Handicap. Both were ridden by apprentice Raul da Silva.

 

Tidal’s Baby was one of three Carroll-trained runners in the five-furlong dash and the one he held out least hopes for in the build-up. But after Valmina refused to enter the stalls and Edge Closer could finish only 13th of 20, the four-year-old was the one that mattered.

 

“It’s been a lucky race for us,” said Carroll, “but I didn’t think this lad would get in as he was so low on the ballot. But he did, and the rain came to give him his ground, and everything worked out well for us.”

 

Tidal’s Baby, home-bred by owner John Quinn, won his first turf race at Windsor earlier in the month but could finish only second, as 6/4 favourite, three days later at Warwick. “I ran him too quick,” added Carroll. “I was trying to beat the penalty, but it rarely works.”

GROUND UPDATE

 

The going remained Good to Soft at the end of the first day of Glorious Goodwood.

 

“I’ve been delighted with the first day of the Festival meeting,” said Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course. “We had 12 millimetres of rain between 7am and midday and I think the course rode a lot better than people were expecting after that.

 

“I changed the going description to Good to Soft after walking the course at 12.30pm and that was the correct call. The jockeys reported that the track was riding on the softer side of good.

 

“We are forecast a dry night with the possibility of some light rain tomorrow morning although anything we get will have moved away from the area by 10am. If the rain fails to materialise, I can see the going changing to being good in places tomorrow.”

 

CROWD

 

Today’s crowd came to 12,674, as against an attendance of 13,162 last year on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood. The fall has been attributed to the poor weather this morning.

 

ASCRIPTION GETS PALMER OFF MARK

 

Newmarket trainer Hugo Palmer enjoyed his first Goodwood success when Ascription prevailed in the Poker At bet365 Handicap.

 

“It’s not that the small days are not important, but racing hangs on its big days and it’s a real thrill to have a winner at a big festival meeting,” said Palmer. “Ascription is well-known to the vets’ practice but he has actually always been a sound horse, despite the fact that he is quite upright. He had a wind operation in the winter and a gender alteration after his last run because he got dangerous at Newmarket. He has always suggested that there would be a big day in him and, thank God, it was today.

 

“He has been much more settled in his work since being gelded. He wasn’t terribly keen in his races but he was always very keen in his work. You could put him anywhere in a gallop now and he has lightened off a bit as well – he is a very big horse and he was probably a bit on the heavy side.

 

“The hood was Michael Hills’ idea after he ran disappointingly at Redcar. Rob Speers, the racing manager, and I went up there to back in him and we came back so sour. He was almost forgetting to breathe in his races and we thought that it would calm him down. It hasn’t calmed him down completely but that’s the kind of horse he is.

 

“I wondered today whether William (Buick) had got there a bit soon but he hadn’t and the horse saw it out really well. He is in the Thirsk Summer Cup on Saturday and in a race at Chester on Sunday so we will think about it.

 

“He has always worked at home like a horse that would win a race likes this and the ground suited him.”

JACK MAY GO FOR REVENGE ON FRIDAY

 

Jack’s Revenge, four and a half length runner-up in the Poker at Bet365 Handicap, may turn out again in the Betfred Mile on Friday. “If he gets in, and if he’s ok after today, I’d like to run him,” said trainer George Baker. “He loves this ground.”

 

The five-year-old gelding is named after Jack, the eight-year-old son of owner Paola Jeffries, who also has Royal Hunt Cup winner Belgian Bill among her seven horses with Baker at Manton.

BRAZOS BRINGS UP MOORE CENTURY

 

After two promising second places, Brazos made it third time lucky as he got off the mark in the Casino at bet365 Maiden. The son of Clodovil came through late to beat Lyn Valley and Mystique Rider by two necks and in the process give Ryan Moore his 100th winner at Goodwood.

 

The rider was more impressed with the colt than his own landmark. “He did that well and he’ll be better for it,” he said. “He’ll be a nice horse.”

 

Told it was his century at the track, he said in typically dry deadpan style: “Is that all? Disappointing.”

 

Brazos’s veteran trainer Clive Brittain was not present, but Bruce Raymond, racing manager to owner Saeed Manana, was as impressed as the jockey with the dark grey’s effort. “He can go on from this quite a bit,” he said. “He’d been getting a bit keen in his races and he was better for being held up today.

 

The colt jibbed babyishly when asked to enter the winner’s place, consenting to be led forward only after being unsaddled. “He’s still green, still learning,” said Raymond, “and he can furnish up physically as well.

 

“He seemed to like the ease in the ground; I think a lot of Clodovils do. We might think about a race like the Royal Lodge Stakes for him, but that’s a bit of a way down the line yet.”

Trainer William Haggas was delighted to see his stable stalwart Harris Tweed return to winning ways in the bet365 Summer Handicap.

 

The six-year-old was home-bred by the winning trainer’s father Brian, who was on hand to celebrate the victory by six lengths at 14/1.

 

“He’s been impossible to place but the handicapper has given him a chance,” said William Haggas. “He’s such a genuine horse but he’d just been banging his head against a brick wall but I don’t suppose he’ll ever win again now. The cheekpieces made a difference to him.

 

“He’s a front-runner so it’s always a good ride if the jockey manages to win – if he doesn’t it means they’ve gone too slow or too fast.

 

“He’s in the Ebor and he’ll probably run although I don’t think York is his place. He gets a 4lb penalty and I think he’ll go up more than that for this win. I’ve got four in the weights so if we run him it will keep a few others out.”

 

Brian Haggas added: “He’s a half-brother to Beaten Up and out of Frog. He was born at Highclere, brought up at home and he was one of those that we loved from the first day he came to us.

 

“He was very well-ridden and given a very tender ride. I don’t like seeing them beaten and it’s a joy. He’s like a family pet and I will never part with him, whatever happens. It’s a great thrill and a great credit to my son.”

 

Jockey George Baker added: “It was the first time he has dropped back into a handicap for a long time and I did get a bit of a shock when I looked back and saw I was so far clear.

 

“He’s obviously a very smart horse on his day and he loves going round in front. I think a turning course like that keeps him very interested.

 

“He’s been a very handy horse in his time – he’s well able, he’s a big horse and can carry plenty of weight. He’s a pleasure to ride really, very straightforward, and the cheekpieces just helped him.”

 

GROUNDS FOR OPTIMISM FOR CAMBORNE AND SURAJ

Camborne’s season is now up and running, subject to whims of the horse himself. The five-year-old delighted John Gosden with his second place in the bet 365 Summer Handicap, his first outing since October, but the trainer warned that as well as talent, the gelding has his own mind.

 

“He’s a character,” he said. “He has going days, and not going days, which only he knows about.  He hasn’t appeared until now because of the ground, he needs give and in the wet spring he wasn’t ready, he’s an old gelding and hadn’t yet come to himself.

 

“We were very pleased with his comeback and we’ll see how he is after today before we decide anything, but he will be the one telling me.”

 

 

Suraj, who snatched third on the line by a nose from Silver Lime, is another who is ground-dependent. “He likes juice, and when the rain came this morning we were very pleased to get on each-way at 20/1,” said trainer Michael Bell. “He didn’t stay last time [in the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot] and before that he had an impossible draw in the Chester Cup.

 

“I don’t think he’ll make the cut in the Ebor – a penalty today would have been good – but I am sure there is a good two-mile handicap in him this season, especially off his current mark.”

 

bet365 MOLECOMB STAKES WINNING JOCKEY BANNED FOR A DAY

 

Pat Dobbs, the winning jockey on Brown Sugar in the Group Three bet365 Molecomb Stakes, was found guilty of careless riding by the Goodwood stewards in that he allowed his mount to drift left, away from the whip, and interfered with the third Ambiance in the run to the line.

 

He received a one-day ban which comes into effect on Tuesday, August 13.

THE LENNOX CAP FITS FOR GARSWOOD AND FAHEY

Garswood, ready winner of the bet365 Lennox Stakes, is still “a big schoolboy”, according to trainer Richard Fahey, with the promise of much more to come. The three-year-old won the Free Handicap on his seasonal debut before a seventh place in the 2,000 Guineas and a fourth in the Jersey Stakes. He has now has put his career firmly back on track in the Group Two feature on the Glorious Goodwood opening day.

“We’ve always felt he was a very nice horse,” said Fahey of the son of Dutch Art, “and he’s not at all the finished article yet. He’s a big boy and he’s growing up all the time. He will be in training next year and we haven’t really got stuck into him 100 per cent this year as there will be more to come. We’re hand picking our way with him so far with that in mind but if we do have a Group One target for him this year, it’s the Prix de la Foret at Longchamp.”

Garswood, the 9/4 favourite, came with a strong run from last to first under Ryan Moore to beat Caspar Netscher by a cosy neck. “We’ve got him really switched off now,” said Fahey, “and he was only learning his trade today in the last 100 yards. He really is still a big schoolboy at the moment.”

Fahey was delighted to pick up the £66,840 first prize for owners David Armstrong and Cheveley Park Stud, and that it covered his own expenditure for the day, a new tweed cap purchased on course because of the rain. “It was either the cap or a straw hat and it cost £48 and is the most expensive cap I’ve ever bought, and up in the north you could get a cap and a suit for that, “ he quipped.

bet365 LENNOX STAKES – INITIAL QUOTES

Ryan Moore, riding his 99th winner at Goodwood (with 25 of those coming at Glorious Goodwood) said after the victory of 9/4 favourite Garswood in the Group Two bet365 Lennox Stakes: “Three-year-olds have a good record but he’s done well as he had to go round the whole lot of the field.

“He got a little bit of interference at the start so he was further back than he should have been, but he won that quite snugly there.

“He’s quite a heavy horse, so he’d probably appreciate cut in the ground, but it’s not bad ground.”

Emma Armstrong (part-owner) added: “That was excellent, absolutely super! We knew that he could do it and we got our rain this morning. We knew then, when he got his ground, today would be his day.

“Ryan is 100 per cent for us – he has ridden two horses for us over the years and won on both – so we are more than happy. I hope that we can get Richard another winner later with Upholland.”

Richard Fahey, the successful trainer said: “The hat came from Goodwood – it cost £48, so I needed to win that race!

“We always felt that he was a nice horse. He is not really the finished article – he is a big boy who is growing up the whole time. Hopefully he will end up as a Group One horse one day.

“I will speak to David and Cheveley Park but the race I have always had in the back of my mind is the Foret at Longchamp. That’s probably his long-term target but we will enjoy this one, get him home and see what happens.”

David Simcock, trainer of the neck second Caspar Netscher, commented: “I am really pleased and relieved as well. It was very hard to know quite where we were with him. He has trained very well and mentally he is in a great place. He was a little fresh but we would expect that as he is quite an exuberant horse. I can’t believe that he won’t come on for the run – he is still quite burly.

“He is in the obvious races – the Hungerford and the Park – and we will probably look at the Foret as an end of season target.”

GREAT COMEBACK FROM CASPAR

Last year’s German 2,000 Guineas winner Caspar Netscher had a great run back after resuming his racing career following a spell where he proved sub-fertile at stud.

The four-year-old was bought back by his previous owner Charles Wentworth and in April joined David Simcock, who was delighted by the colt’s neck-second to Garswood.

“I’m delighted,” said Simcock. “I can’t believe he won’t come on from that run and – as you would expect – he was a bit fresh early on. He travelled well, had a really good demeanour and it looked like he was going to do it.

“Mentally he is very good and he is a pleasure to train. I hope he has two or three racing years ahead of him.

“He joined me in April and there was a long turnaround getting him ready for racing and it has worked well getting him back now as the right races come at the right time. We’ll look at the Hungerford Stakes, the Park Stakes and the Foret will be his late-season target. I will also stretch him to a mile at some point.”

Marcus Tregoning, trainer of third-placed Boom And Bust, said: “I’m absolutely delighted and he is a really consistent performer. He had quite a few of them off the bridle two furlongs out and it’s possible that the Celebration Mile back here might suit him. We’ll see how he takes this race. It was softer than ideal but he handled it.”

SUGAR CONTINUES SWEET START FOR HANNON

 

Trainer Richard Hannon made it two from two at Glorious Goodwood this year when 8/1 chance Brown Sugar got the better of stablemate Anticipated, a 7/2 chance, in the bet365.com Molecomb Stakes.

 

“They were both flat out all the way and I think in another couple of strides that the other horse would have won,” said Hannon. “The winner did everything wrong at Newmarket last time and he’ll probably step up to six now – in fact I should have put him in the Richmond Stakes here. The second will probably stick at five furlongs.

 

“Lord de la Warr is a good owner and his son Ed Sackville bought the horse. He also bought Producer as well and is a good bloodstock agent.”

 

Winning rider Pat Dobbs added: “They went very quick for the first two furlongs. He didn’t handle the hill very well but he came good once he met the level ground and came back on the bridle strong.

 

“I was just waiting a few strides before committing because it’s a long way home in the last furlong for a two-year-old here. I waited as long as I could. Mentally he will improve. He’d been a bit keen on his last run and he just needed to settle today, which he did.”

 

Owner Lord de la Warr said: “I am so chuffed, I can hardly speak. De La Warr Racing has had umpteen horses placed in Group races, including a third in a Guineas, but we have never won a Group race before.

 

“My son Ed Sackville bought him and I promised this year that I wouldn’t interfere in any of the sales. This was the first time that I wasn’t following him round the sales – I kept well out of it. I wasn’t even here when he bought it.

 

“I have to hand it to Richard Hannon jnr, who wanted to run him over five furlongs because that way there is a chance he might settle. Even then, he was trying to go but they were going quick enough. I think that was the key to it.”

 

AMBIANCE BETTER THAN FRANCE

 

Mick Channon was pleased that 8/1 shot Ambiance showed himself better than his last outing, when sixth in the Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte nine days ago, but was still disappointed not to win the bet 365 Molecomb Stakes.

 

Ambiance, a son of Camacho, was beaten a neck and a length and a quarter into third place in the Group Three  five furlong contest after leading half a furlong from home. He was slightly crossed by the winner Brown Sugar close home. “That made no difference and we’ve no excuses,” said Channon. “The only thing is that this was the first time he’s encountered softish ground and he’ll be happier back on fast ground.

 

“He’s very quick and he’ll continue in the two-year-old sprint races; we were disappointed with him in France and we’re happier that at least he’s run his race this time. He’s run a good race and we were pleased with him, but its always nicer to win.”

HANNON & HUGHES START QUICKLY AT GLORIOUS GOODWOOD

The two Richards, Hannon and Hughes, each launched their bids for a fourth Glorious Goodwood title at the earliest opportunity as they combined to take the opening bet365.com Handicap with Viewpoint. The four-year-old son of Exceed And Excel, a 16/1 shot, came from off the pace with a strong late run to cut down Nabucco by a length.

 

After a promising fourth to Nabucco on his seasonal debut, Viewpoint had finished only third at Ascot on Friday. The difference, according to Hannon, was the ground, softened during the morning by the driving rain that caused the abandonment of the Glorious meeting’s opening ceremony.

 

“It was just too firm for him at Ascot,” said the trainer, the leading current trainer at Goodwood and this meeting’s champion in 2008, 2010 and 2011. “He could never pick up on it and lengthen. He likes to get his toe in and today was just perfect.

 

“He’s a horse you have to drop out, and I thought maybe Richard had overdone it today, but he’s a good judge of pace. But they were going quick up front and when that happens you can make up the ground. He got a lovely tow through.”

 

Hannon will saddle Toronado in tomorrow’s QIPCO Sussex Stakes and does not see the softened ground as a problem. “He should be fine with it,” he said. “And he should be OK on the track too, he’s a well-balanced horse. The other two [Dawn Approach and Declaration Of War] have both pacemakers in, but ours will appreciate a good gallop too.

 

“When Dawn Approach beat us at Ascot there was only inches in it, and although both horses suffered interference, we took a right whack. We’ll just have to see what happens. He’s in good form and we’ve done our bit at home. We pay a good man to do the rest of the job and it’s up to Hughsie now.”

 

Hughes added: “This horse [Viewpoint] ran at Ascot but didn’t have too hard a race because the Johnston horse was very well in. He wasn’t liking the ground at Ascot and I didn’t hit him, so he pulled himself up. I knew with a bit more cut in the ground, he would be OK.

 

“At the start a lot of the jockeys were under the opinion that it was nearly good and not too bad but it’s definitely riding on the slow side of good. I’d imagine with a dry night it will be good tomorrow.

 

“I didn’t jump great and I tried to get him into a rhythm. At Ascot, I was climbing the hill and he wouldn’t go – it was the ground more than anything else – and I was bullying him the whole race. As soon as I eased up on him, he nearly pulled himself up. I knew going to the start that he would love the juice in the ground and he travelled ever so much better. He is a good all-weather horse and we thought that Ascot might suit him but it was very firm.

 

“I would say that he needs a bit of distance and he won’t run in the Betfred Mile. He would get a mile and a half based on today’s run.”

 

NABUCCO FINISHES SECOND

 

The John Gosden-trained Nabucco ran a gallant race in the opening bet365.com Handicap when going down by a length to Viewpoint.

 

“It was a great effort and he has run his little race and come out best with (third-placed) Labarinto but Richard (Hughes on Viewpoint) came with a late run and beat us both. Richard is very good at doing that,” said Gosden. “Coming second in these sorts of races is no good because I expect the handicapper will put him up again without winning.”

Godolphin

Background: Godolphin is the racing entity of Sheikh Mohammed and other members of the ruling Maktoum family of Dubai. Its aim is to win races worldwide. Godolphin horses often benefit from Dubai’s warm winter climate. The experiment began on a small scale in the winter of 1992. The Godolphin operation was formally established in 1994, with Hilal Ibrahim as trainer, when Balanchine won the Investec Oaks and Irish Derby. The following year, Saeed bin Suroor was appointed as the official trainer. Trainers: Godolphin’s British-based horses are handled by Saeed bin Suroor. Andre Fabre trains for Godolphin in France, while the US runners are overseen by Kiaran McLaughlin, Tom Albertrani and Eoin Harty. Jim Bolger trains Dawn Approach, following the part sale of the colt to Godolphin in 2012. Simon Crisford is Godolphin’s longstanding racing manager. Mahmood Al Zarooni, who previously trained for Godolphin at Moulton Paddocks in Newmarket, was banned for eight years by the BHA in April, 2013. A total of 22 of his horses tested positive for anabolic steroids and are unable to race for six months. The Al Zarooni horses are now trained by the new Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby.

DAWN DUEL SET FOR PLACE IN HISTORY

 

The Sussex Stakes has, from 1960, been the race in which the best three-year-old milers traditionally face off against their elders for the first time. Before then, the historic eight-furlong contest, first staged in 1878, had been restricted to the Classic generation.

 

There have been some monumental showdowns between the generations, one of the best coming in 1992, when the tiny filly Marling, narrowly beaten in the 1,000 Guineas, took on the previous year’s champion miler Selkirk, winner of the Lockinge Stakes earlier in the season, and beat him a head.

 

More recently, Canford Cliffs was involved in two successive showdowns. As a three-year-old in 2010 he saw off year-older Rip van Winkle, who had himself disposed of four-year-old Paco Boy the previous season, by a neck. As a four-year-old Canford Cliffs came to Goodwood with the Lockinge and Queen Anne Stakes under his girth, but that year’s so-called Duel On The Downs proved somewhat one-sided as he was beaten five lengths by Frankel.

 

But equally, the Sussex Stakes can settle some disputes between contemporaries and one of the most memorable rivalries was that between King’s Lake and To Agori Mou in 1981.

 

To Agori Mou, trained by Guy Harwood and ridden by Greville Starkey, had won the 2,000 Guineas but in the Irish version had been narrowly beaten in a rough finish by Pat Eddery-ridden  King’s Lake, from the Vincent O’Brien stable. The result was reversed by the stewards on the day, only to be reinstated by the Turf Club after an appeal.

 

In the St James’s Palace Stakes, To Agori Mou avenged his Curragh defeat by a head, with Starkey famously giving the v-sign to Eddery after the line. The Sussex Stakes was the decider, with victory this time going to King’s Lake by a head. The well-matched pair did not meet again;  King’s Lake won the ten-furlong race that became the Irish Champion Stakes and To Agori Mou won the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

 

Five years ago, one of the episodes in the absorbing rivalry between Henrythenavigator and Raven’s Pass was played out at Goodwood. Henrythenavigator, trained by Aidan O’Brien, had set the miling standard with defeats of subsequent Derby hero New Approach in the Newmarket and Curragh Guineas, but in the St James’s Palace Stakes the 2,000 Guineas fourth Raven’s Pass, from the John Gosden stable, got much closer, beaten three-quarters of a length.

 

In the Sussex Stakes, Henrythenavigator kept the score 3-0, but by only a head. By the end of the season it was 3-2, Raven’s Pass having taken his revenge in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup Classic.

 

This year’s Duel On The Downs again involves Anglo-Irish rivalry, between Dawn Approach, trained by Jim Bolger, and Toronado, by Richard Hannon (as were Canford Cliffs and Paco Boy), with the score 2-0 to Dawn Approach.
