All the news on day two of Glorious Goodwood

WATERWORTH THRILLED BY THE QIPCO SUSSEX STAKES

 

Adam Waterworth, Goodwood Racecourse’s Managing Director, was thrilled with how Glorious Goodwood’s top race, the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, panned out.

 

Marketed as the second “Duel on the Downs” following the clash between the mighty Frankel and Canford Cliffs in 2011, the race lived up to its billing.

 

Dawn Approach, who had previously beaten Toronado twice, succumbed by half a length to his rival.

 

Waterworth commented: “What a great race. It was just what we wanted.

 

“It was an absolutely fantastic race and could not have been better – a real Duel on the Downs.”

 

The Goodwood crowd appreciated jockey Richard Hughes’ late swoop on Toronado and cheered him especially when the horse returned to the winner’s enclosure.

 

 

TODAY’S CROWD

 

Today’s attendance to see Toronado beat Dawn Approach in a thrilling QIPCO Sussex Stakes came to 18,152.

 

This was down from the 21,505 who came last year for Frankel’s second QIPCO Sussex Stakes victory.

 

Frankel’s first QIPCO Sussex Stakes success in 2011 was watched by 19,080 racegoers.

 

The attendance on the second day of Glorious Goodwood in 2010 was 16,748.

 

Adam Waterworth, Goodwood Racecourse’s managing director, said: “We are happy with today’s attendance.

 

“We knew the crowd would be down on the last two years because of the Frankel effect.”

MAGIC FOR HANNON, HUGHES AND FERGIE

 

Magic City brought up a 49.6/1 Glorious Goodwood second day treble for the Richards Hannon and Hughes in the finale, the Harwoods Racing Club Handicap, and provided a timely boost for one of his joint-owners Sir Alex Ferguson, currently in hospital recovering from hip surgery.

 

The four-year-old, the 5/1 favourite, took the seven-furlong contest by a length from 12/1 shot Alejandro. “We always thought he was a decent horse,” said Hannon, “but he lost his way a bit last year. He’s owned by people who were prepared to be patient with him, though, and that patience is being rewarded now he’s starting to come good again.”

 

Magic City, by Elusive City, has now won three of his five handicap starts this year. “I think the handicapper might have something to say now,” added Hannon, “so we’ll look for a conditions race for him.”

 

The other winners for Hannon and Hughes today were Toronado (11/4) and Toormore (5/4f).

 

Magic City gave Hannon his 249th Goodwood winner.

GROUND UPDATE

 

The going remains Good to Soft overnight after day two of Glorious Goodwood although clerk of the course Seamus Buckley could see that description changing tomorrow.

 

“We are not forecast to get any rain before Friday and if that’s the case then I could see the going changing tomorrow to Good to Soft, Good in places, or Good, Good to Soft in places.

 

“We had fine drizzle this morning that didn’t even amount to a millimetre of rain so I left the going as Good to Soft, which the jockeys agreed with. The GoingStick reading has gone from 6.8 to 7.2 so it has quickened up a bit.

 

“Tonight we will be taking down the far running rail to provide fresh ground for the last three furlongs from the home bend to the winning post.”

 

Reflecting on the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, Buckley added: “We were privileged to see such a wonderful race as the QIPCO Sussex Stakes and it turned out to be just what we had hoped – the duel on the downs.

 

“The time of the race on that ground was amazing and I feel we saw two exceptionally good horses. To have come within a second of the course record on that ground was a fantastic effort.”

 

MANNING AND QUEALLY BANNED

 

Kevin Manning was banned for four days (August 14, 15, 16 and 17) following his ride on second-placed Dawn Approach in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes. He was found to have used his whip above the permitted level.

 

Tom Queally was banned for one day (August 14) following his ride on third-placed Spillway in the Neptune Investment Management Gordon Stakes. The stewards found him guilty of careless riding after interference with Secret Number (5th).

RIBBONS WORTH THE WAIT


In taking the British Stallion Studs Turf Club Fillies’ Handicap, Ribbons completed a fine half-hour for the Elite Racing Club. In the previous race, another of the ownership group’s home-breds, Stars Above Me, had finished second.

 

Ribbons easily took her unbeaten record to four in the nine-furlong contest, defeating Rhagori by two and three-quarter lengths under James Doyle. But she took her time getting to the start, eventually having to be dismounted and led there.

 

“At Goodwood, when you go to that start, you canter so far and then walk the last downhill four furlongs,” said Doyle. “When I pulled up and started to walk, she got a bit agitated, so I jumped off and had to use quite a lot of persuasion to get her there.

 

“She’s not 100 per cent straightforward, but in the race she was fine. It was a messy sort of race – I got trapped a bit wide from my draw and they were going no pace – but she did relax a bit and it worked out in the end.”

 

Trainer James Fanshawe was not present. Ribbons, by Manduro, and Stars Above Me, by Exceed And Excel, are from the same family – their dams are half-sisters, out of Kalinka, to the best Elite Racing colourbearer, the top-class miler Soviet Song.

CANDY SWEET ON VALONIA

 

Valonia may have cost trainer Henry Candy only 5,500gns as a yearling but she looks a juvenile with a big future after winning the Markel Insurance Fillies’ Maiden.

 

“I couldn’t sell her on because nobody liked her sire. She was a bit of a strange-looking beast but was obviously able to run” said Candy. “After she’d done a couple of bits of work I wasn’t very keen on parting with her. I put her in the Cheveley Park Stakes and didn’t spend all that money on an entry fee for fun! She’ll have one race before that, probably either in the Lowther or at Ayr.

 

“She was very green when she hit the front today. Dane (O’Neill) had planned to hold her up a bit more but it’s hard to do that at Goodwood. The others never left her alone so Dane had to commit and she was just green and hanging in front. She’ll be OK with that experience now.

 

“She’s got a huge big long stride on her and on breeding ought to stay a little bit further but I’m not so sure she will with her racing style. This ground, with a bit of give, was ideal for her.”

 

STARS TO SHINE SOFTLY

 

There are no grand plans yet for Stars Above Me, length and a half runner-up on her debut to Valonia in the Markel Insurance Fillies’ Maiden. “I was really pleased with that,” said trainer Roger Charlton of the daughter of Exceed And Excel, a 16/1 shot. “James [Doyle, jockey] said she was a bit gassy early and that the soft ground didn’t suit her.

 

“But she finished off really well. We’ll try to find a fast-ground six-furlong maiden for her, and take it gently from there.”

YET MORE FOR HANNON AND HUGHES

 

Toormore, described by Richard Hughes as ‘one of the nicest two-year-olds in the yard’, continued the tremendous Goodwood record of the rider and trainer Richard Hannon. In the Veuve Cliquot Vintage Stakes, the son of Arakan gave Hughes his third winner of Glorious week, and Hannon his fourth.

 

Hughes swooped typically late to take the seven-furlong Group Two contest by a neck from fellow previous maiden winner Outstrip, with Coventry Stakes runner-up Parbold a length and a half third.

 

“He’s a big baby mentally and physically still,” said Hughes, “so he did well there, the second horse kept on well and mine had three lengths to make up. He’ll get a mile easily in time and though the Guineas is being talked about already that’s a long way away. He is one of our nicest two-year-olds but he’ll have to fill out and develop a bit more before he’s the real deal.”

 

Toormore is clearly held in some regard. “We left him out of Royal Ascot because he was a bit weak,” said Hannon’s assistant and son Richard, “and he still is. It looks as if he wants a mile now, and the Royal Lodge and the Dewhurst Stakes are races that will be on his agenda later in the season.”

 

Asked if Toormore is the next Toronado, Hannon said: “That would be nice, wouldn’t it?”

 

Hannon pointed out that the colt is the third cheaply-bought (£36,000 as a yearling) son of Arakan, based at Ballyhane Stud in Co Carlow, to win a Group race for the stable, the others being Dick Turpin and Trumpet Major.

 

MORE CHAMPAGNE FOR OUTSTRIP?

 

Outstrip just failed to outstrip all when he went down by a neck to Toormore in the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes, though connections were far from disappointed with the the home bred’s display.

 

This was only Outstrip’s second run, his first being a impressive maiden win at Newmarket in June, and Simon Crisford, racing Manager for Godolphin, the Exceed And Excel colt’s owners, commented: “He’s run a super race and looked like winning every-where but the line. He’s a nice colt. Seven furlongs next time – we will keep him to that trip.

 

“He showed a really good turn of foot when Mickael (Barzalona, jockey) asked him to go, the winner just came past us at the line but our colt is good. He will run in races like the Group Two Champagne Stakes at Doncaster – those are his long term targets.”

 

Mickael Barzalona, jockey of Outstrip, added: “He ran very well.”

FURTHER REACTION FROM RICHARD HUGHES FOLLOWING TORONADO’S QIPCO SUSSEX STAKES WIN

 

Richard Hughes gave further reaction following Toronado’s QIPCO Sussex Stakes victory. The champion jockey said: “On things like Twitter  you can get slagged off but I love my horses. I hate it when people slag them off and Lizzie knows how much I think of this horse.

 

“We were so gutted at Ascot that he didn’t get up. If he didn’t get the bump he would’ve won and the whole week might have gone great but it just didn’t work out. There was a lot of pressure on today as there were no excuses if he got beat today. I thought his reputation would be ruined if he didn’t win today, so there was a lot riding on it.

 

“I just said to the owners when we went into the ring that I thought I’ll come fast and late but the most important thing was to let him get his head down early and let him breathe which was an issue at Newmarket. That is your first priority to make sure he breathes properly in a race and he won’t do that by pulling or dragging your arm.

 

“There’s only one winning post at Goodwood and it’s right down the end. Declaration Of War has done me a favour as he brought me into the race. My lad wasn’t as instant as he can be on firm ground but I’m glad we didn’t roll down into Dawn Approach, we kept well away and left him alone.

 

“The yard and everybody have done a lot of work with this horse. Sean Levey has done a wonderful job, he’s probably the best pair of hands in the weighing room. He rides this horse every morning and he’s done a better job settling him than I ever would have ever done.

 

“He can only get better, he’s 13 kilos heavier now than when he ran in the Guineas. We had him pretty fit today, he’s done two bits of work since Ascot, Sean rode him once and I rode him in the morning – what he did the other morning was a piece of work than only Canford Cliffs could’ve done.”

 

BOLGER PLEASED WITH DAWN APPROACH

 

A duel always has a winner and loser and it was no different in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, billed as the Duel on the Downs, after Toronado finished late and wide to snatch the verdict by half a length from Dawn Approach who had gone to the front by the one and a half furlong point.

 

Dawn Approach’s trainer, Jim Bolger, reacted initially by saying: “It was a top performance. We were just beaten by a better horse on the day. There no reasons for the defeat – we were beaten by a better horse on the day. I am not concerned about a rematch. We still have to figure out exactly where we go from here. Whatever turns up, turns up. There are a couple of possibilities but time will tell all.”

 

He added: “The tactics used were the ones decided on. They have served us in good stead in the past and whatever happened, happened. That is his style of racing and that is how we like to manage things for him. It has not worked out too badly in the past doing things that way.

 

“I don’t think it was a question of the course. We were beaten by a better horse on the day. They aren’t many horses who would want to eyeball Dawn Approach who is entered in all the Group One mile races and we will decide that at a later stage.

 

“I was very happy with Dawn Approach coming into this race. I have been beaten here before – I would not say I am used to it at this stage but I have no difficulty accepting results. I was hopeful – I never use the word confident. I was hopeful of a good run. He may not have run up to his very best – I don’t know. I was hopeful of a good run and we got a good run. He was just beaten by a better horse on the day.

 

“We will sit down and think about it. I will talk with Sheikh Mohammed and Simon Crisford and see where we go.”

 

Regarding Dawn Approach’s next race, Bolger said: “Whoever turns up, turns up. We won’t be shirking anybody when we decide where to go.

 

“I felt our horse ran a really good race. We were beaten by a better horse on the day and that is how I am viewing it. Things panned out exactly as I planned except for the very result. The track is the same for everybody.”

 

Asked whether it was vintage QIPCO Sussex Stakes, the trainer replied: “It will be billed as a very good race but I don’t see it as a vintage race for the simple reason that the battle did not last all that long.

 

“It wasn’t like some previous battles from one and a half (furlongs) out like between Alexander Goldrun (who Bolger trained) and Ed Dunlop’s filly (Ouija Board in the 2006 Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes at Goodwood).

 

“Dawn Approach is the top-rated three-year-old colt in the world at this stage – he may not be after that, I don’t know. But when horses like Dawn Approach turn up to run in any race that should be enough to remind people of the quality of the horses in the race.”

 

Beaten but not unbowed asked a journalist and Bolger came back: “Certainly not. Maybe on a different track you would get a different result; I don’t know. I would not be disappointed – I think he ran near enough to his best form. I suppose they won’t run quite to their best all the time. We are very happy to be here. It was a wonderful race and a wonderful racetrack. The only thing we did not get was the right result.”

 

Kevin Manning, Dawn Approach’s jockey, added: “It was a proper-run race. Dawn Approach quickened up and went all the way to the line. Richard (Hughes on Toronado) just came deep and wide of me.”

 

NEW CAMPAIGN FOR WAR

 

Declaration Of War may break new ground after his third place to the top-class three-year-old milers Toronado and Dawn Approach in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes. After winning the Queen Anne Stakes over a mile, the son of War Front stepped up to 10 furlongs to run second in the Eclipse Stakes. And he may drop back in distance later in the season.

 

“He has a lot of speed, this horse,” said trainer Aidan O’Brien, “and he certainly won’t be going beyond a mile again. In fact, we wouldn’t be afraid of going then other way. A race like the Haydock Sprint Cup [over six furlongs] would be a definite possibility.”

 

Of Declaration of War’s Sussex Stakes performance – he was beaten three lengths by the winner – O’Brien said he was satisfied under the circumstances. “We knew he was taking on two very good three-year-olds,” he said, “and he ran very well. Ideally, he’d want faster ground; it looked as if his wheels were spinning a bit today.

 

“He’s a real Danzig [the four-year-old’s paternal grandsire], with lots of speed he can show on fast ground.”

TORONADO BLOWS AWAY APPROACH IN SUSSEX EPIC

 

The QIPCO Sussex Stakes was billed beforehand as ‘the Duel on the Downs’ and the Group 1 contest did not disappoint as Toronado finished with a wet-sail to beat his big rival Dawn Approach by half a length.

 

Toronado, who received a big cheer from the crowd, had lost out to Dawn Approach in both the QIPCO 2000 Guineas and St James’s Palace Stakes and winning training Richard Hannon was pleased to set the record straight.

 

“I’d say they are two top-class horses,” said Hannon. “I told Hughesie to drop in, it was the only thing he could do from that draw. I didn’t want him to catch the pacemakers coming back.

 

“It was looking difficult two furlongs out but our horse has a hell of a turn of foot.

 

“Hughesie rode him at home four or five days ago and said he was the best he’d ever ridden, even better than Canford Cliffs, who was a very good work horse.

 

“I’d have loved him to have won at Ascot but I was just very happy to see him come back to form after his Guineas run.”

 

Looking to the future, Hannon’s son and assistant Richard added: “We’ll see how he comes out of this but the Jacques Le Marois and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes are the obvious races.

 

“He’ll stick to a mile this year but he’ll stay in training next season when perhaps he could step up to 10 furlongs at some point.”

 

Jockey Richard Hughes added: “He’s proved he’s a brilliant horse. My plan was ‘wide, fast and late’ and luckily it worked. I didn’t want to get into a battle with Dawn Approach so I wanted to get there late and fast.

 

“They went a good gallop and we saw two wonderful horses, I’m just glad our’s was the most wonderful horse. It’s very sweet.

 

“When I kicked him in the belly he was not as instant on that ground as he would have been on fast ground. It was a great race and, when I didn’t go by Dawn Approach quickly I thought ‘oh no here we go again’ but he was very brave. He’s brilliant

 

“I felt he had come on a little bit at home mentally and he was a more mature horse.

 

“It was a true race and I was always travelling well. It was just when I went to go, it wasn’t quite as instant as it is in the mornings. I would like to thank Sheikh Joaan for letting me ride him. I read in the paper that I’d keep the ride if we won today so hopefully I can keep riding him.”

TORONADO GETS HIS REVENGE IN “DUEL ON THE DOWNS”

 

Toronado finally got the better of Dawn Approach when the two three-year-old colts met for the third time in the highlight of Glorious Goodwood, the Group One QIPCO Sussex Stakes. Toronado scored by half a length from Dawn Approach with Richard Hughes timing his run perfectly.

 

Winning trainer Richard Hannon said: “Revenge is sweet, I suppose, but they are two good horses. Richard Hughes said the other morning in work that he was the best he has ever ridden. You know, with Canford Cliffs and everything, we have had some good horses, but he is very good.”

 

Richard Hughes added: “It’s very sweet. Just when I kicked him in the belly, he’s not as instant on that ground as he would have been on fast ground. It was a great race and, when I didn’t go by him quickly I thought oh no here we go again but he was very brave. He’s brilliant.

 

“It was a true race and I was always travelling well. It was just when I went to go, it wasn’t quite as instant as it is in the mornings. I would like to thank Sheikh Joaan for letting me ride him.”

 

Jim Bolger, trainer of Dawn Approach, commented: “It was a top performance. We were just beaten by a better horse on the day.

 

“I am not concerned with a rematch. We still have to figure out exactly where we go from here. Whatever turns up, turns up. There are a couple of possibilities but time will tell all.”

 

CAP PERFECT FIT FOR CHARLIE

 

Cap O’Rushes stepped away from his role as Godolphin pacemaker into the spotlight as Classic candidate in his own right by taking the Neptune Investment Management Gordon Stakes by a determined head from Excess Knowledge. In the process he marked a significant landmark for his trainer Charlie Appleby, who recently took over the beleaguered Moulton Paddocks division of Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin operation.

 

In the 12-furlong Group Three event, Cap O’Rushes was Appleby’s first Group winner with his first Group runner, and also made it one for one for him at Goodwood. The son of New Approach finished fourth at the Curragh last month, with his better-fancied stablemate Libertarian unplaced. “It didn’t work out for Libertarian but Cap O’Rushes ran a really good race,” said Appleby. “We brought him back home and freshened him up, and he’s come on since then.

 

“We were quite confident today, the way he’s progressed in the past few weeks. He saw the trip out really well and really appreciated the cut in the ground, as a horse with his short action would. We’ll take it one step at a time with him but the plan would be the Great Voltigeur and then the St Leger.”

 

Cap O’Rushes may meet Libertarian again in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York, but this time on his own merits. “Libertarian has had a break since Ireland and we’d be quite happy to run both of them at York.”

 

Appleby was pleased that his career as trainer, after 15 years behind the scenes with Godolphin, has launched so well. “It’s not so much a relief, more a satisfaction,” he said, “and a way of thanking the Sheikh and the Godolphin team for their faith.”

 

The trainer added: “I was more excited today rather than nervous. I have been very fortunate to be with Godolphin for 15 years, working for Saeed and being an assistant for five years now, so I have been well schooled into the job.

 

“I have so much confidence in my team – we have such a great team – and the confidence that everybody else is giving me can only help the team.”

 

Mickael Barzalona added: “I was very close to winning last year, so I am very happy to win this year. We went a nice sensible pace and I was travelling well behind a nice horse. I came there well and, when challenged, he came back very well.

 

“He’s a really nice horse. He doesn’t give a lot in the mornings but he is a proper group horse. I think we have seen already last time when he was fourth and I think he would have every chance in a Group One race.”

 

LEGER TARGET FOR EXCESS KNOWLEDGE

 

Excess Knowledge is heading to the Ladbrokes St Leger after finishing a luckless head second to Cap O’Rushes in the Neptune Investment Management Gordon Stakes.

 

“If you get stopped, you get stopped. One wandered in front of our’s and we then had to get going again,” said the second’s trainer John Gosden.

 

“The Leger must be on his agenda and we’ll see where we go from here. Arctic Cosmos got beaten here and then won at Doncaster and we could go straight there or look at the Great Voltigeur. Today was a good Leger trial but there was no pace.”

 

Express Knowledge is 8/1, from 12/1, with Ladbrokes for the final Classic.

 

Third-placed Spillway delighted trainer Eve Johnson Houghton, who said: “He’s still a big green baby, even with all the racing he has had. It’s great to get black-type because his owner-breeder Luke (Neale) has the mare.

 

“I made a mistake running him in the wrong race at Royal Ascot, we should have gone for the King Edward VII Stakes.

 

“He will improve next year but will probably go for the St Leger. He’s in the Great Voltigeur and I don’t see why he won’t run there.”

THREE REASONS TO CELEBRATE FOR JOHNSTON

 

Mark Johnston not only trained UBS Goodwood Handicap winner Broxbourne but also celebrated as the part-owner and joint-breeder of the mare.

 

“I put together the Ready To Run partnership but think we only sold eight or nine of the 20 shares so I have the rest,” said Johnston. “We bred her with Luke Lillingston on a foal share and her sire Refuse To Bend was a bit flat so we ended up buying her in for €8,000 as a yearling.

 

“She was leased to the Racegoers’ Club then we put her through Doncaster sales in November when she only made £3,000 and we bought her back again.

 

“It’s only latterly that we have stepped her up to these extreme distances and that has been the key with her. She could possibly head to the Shergar Cup and the Cesarewitch could be a possibility.”

 

Winning rider Joe Fanning added: “She’s very game. She doesn’t travel great early on but she stays all day.

 

“They went an even gallop all the way. Once I straightened up, I always thought I’d nearly get there, she stays very well and she did it well

 

“She ran very well at Ascot the other day run, so fair play to her for coming back so quickly and winning again.

 

“The ground is very similar to yesterday. Good to soft ground I’d say is right.”

 

LIEUTENANT MILLER AIMED AT BETFRED CESAREWITCH

 

Lieutenant Miller finished second, beaten half a length, to Broxbourne in the UBS Goodwood Handicap over two miles and five furlongs, the opening race on day two of Glorious Goodwood.

 

The seven-year-old, trained by Nicky Henderson for a Henry Ponsonby syndicate, had beaten the winner by a length and a quarter when they were first and second in a Doncaster two-mile handicap on April 26.

 

This time the order was reversed but Ponsonby was delighted with his horse.

 

He said: “Lieutenant Miller has run a good race again after finishing third in the Ascot Handicap at Royal Ascot.

 

“He will have a short break and then go straight to the Betfred Cesarewitch (at Newmarket on October 12).

 

“He is an unbelievable horse. How he got beaten in two bumpers, ridden by McCoy and Geraghty, we will never know – he wasn’t in the first five in either of them!”

 

GOING AFTER THE FIRST

 

Joe Fanning, partner of the winner Broxbourne, said: “The same as yesterday – good to soft.”

 

Tom Queally, rider of second Lieutenant Miller, said: “More or less the same as yesterday.”

 

Jamie Spencer, jockey of fourth Beyond Conceit, said: “Good.”

 

Franny Norton, partner of Good Morning Star, said: “Not bad – a touch dead.”

 

Kieren Fallon, partner of Herostatus, said: “Similar to yesterday – not bad though.”

 

William Buick, jockey of The Betchworth Kid, said: “The same as yesterday – good to soft.”

 

Frankie Dettori, on board Sohar, said: “Just on the slow side of good.”

 

Graham Lee, rider of Kazbow, said: “Good to soft.”

 

Paul Hanagan, jockey of High Office, said: “Good to soft.”

 

Fergus Sweeney, partner of Ermyn Lodge, said: “It is a bit tacky.”

STIRRING BALLAD 6/1 FAVOURITE FOR BETFRED MILE AFTER DRAWING STALL FOUR

 

A field of 20 has been declared for Friday’s Betfred Mile and Stirring Ballad is 6/1 favourite (from 7/1) with the sponsors after drawing stall four.

 

Cape Peron is a big mover, having shortened to 7/1 (from 10/1) after landing the five box and is joint-second favourite with Wentworth who will break from stall 13.

 

Dance And Dance has also been cut to 8/1 (from 12/1) with Betfred after he was drawn bang on the rail in stall one.

 

St Moritz and Haafaguinea are the two reserves and are priced at 28/1 and 18/1 respectively.

 

Betfred spokesman Andrew Griffiths said: “As ever, the draw for the Betfred Mile has triggered a shake-up in the market with Cape Peron and Dance And Dance the two big movers after landing single-figure stalls.”

 

Betfred Mile – sponsors bet: 6 (from 7) Stirring Ballad, 7 (from 10) Cape Peron, Wentworth, 8 (from 12) Dance And Dance, 11 (from 14) Windhoek, 12 Brendan Bracken, 14 Field Of Dream, Fire Ship, 16 Dream Tune, Galician, 18 Haafaguinea (Reserve), 20 Asatir, Captain Bertie, Es Que Love, Sandagiyr, Spa’s Dancer, 22 Two For Two, 25 Boom And Bust, Boots And Spurs, Sirius Prospect, 28 St Moritz (Reserve), 33 Set The Trend.

MOUNT TOP OF STAYERS UP FOR THE CUP

 

The £100,000 Artemis Goodwood Cup, first run in 1812, is one of the oldest races in the British calendar and was once, when stamina was the most prized asset in a racehorse and potential stallion, one of the most prestigious.

 

Nowadays it is still one of the season’s premier long-distance tests, as the middle leg of the so-called ‘stayers’ triple crown’, after the Gold Cup at Ascot and before the Doncaster Cup, and as part of the QIPCO British Champions Series. It has been run over various distances before settling at two miles in 1991, and after being downgraded to Group Three level in 1986, regained its Group Two status in 1995.

 

Its winners include some of the great horses in the division, most notably in the modern era such as Yeats, Persian Punch, Kayf Tara, Double Trigger, Ardross and Le Moss.

 

But the most charismatic has surely been Kincsem, the Hungarian mare who took the race in 1878 as part of her world record unbeaten run of 54. It was her 37th race and, on her sole visit to Britain, she was the outsider of three but despite being left nearly a furlong at the start, she won easily.

 

Yeats, in 2008, was the last horse to complete the Gold Cup-Goodwood Cup double. This year’s Ascot winner Estimate is not in tomorrow’s field; the Ascot form is represented by Colour Vision, who was fourth, Germany’s Altano (5th) and Ireland’s Saddler’s Rock (8th).

 

The ante-post favourite, though, is Luca Cumani-trained Mount Athos, whose last outing was also at Royal Ascot, when he finished a staying-on fifth in the Hardwicke Stakes over a mile and a half. That was the Montjeu six-year-old’s second run of the season; his first brought a nine-length success over 13 furlongs at Chester. On his last run over two miles he finished an excellent fifth in the Melbourne Cup. Cumani has yet to win a Goodwood Cup.

 

Colour Vision finished third to Saddler’s Rock in last year’s Goodwood Cup after winning the Gold Cup. The grey five-year-old has not won since his Ascot triumph but ran a solid race behind Estimate last month. He is the best-fancied of three Godolphin representatives tomorrow, the others being Cavalryman and Ahzeemah, who finished first and second over the trip in the Dubai Gold Cup at Meydan in March. Godolphin has won two of the last four Goodwood Cups, with Opinion Poll in 2011 and Schiaparelli in 2009.

 

Colour Vision is vying for second favouritism with Caucus, who beat Cavalryman over two miles at Newmarket on his last outing of 2012, opened his 2013 campaign by beating all but Estimate in the Sagaro Stakes and warmed up for tomorrow with a dogged success at Sandown. His trainer John Gosden won the Goodwood Cup 20 years ago with Sonus.

 

Saddler’s Rock will be bidding to become the 13th horse to win more than one Goodwood Cup and the 11th to win two in a row, the latest back-to-back winner being Double Trigger in 1998. John Oxx’s charge has not finished in the first three since last year’s success.

 

The only other raider is Altano for Germany, a country on the crest of a wave after Novellist’s triumph at Ascot on Saturday. Like the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner, Altano is trained by Andreas Wohler and before his Gold Cup effort the Galileo seven-year-old had won over two miles at Hoppegarten. No German-trained horse has won a Goodwood Cup.

 

MARKET MOVERS

 

It has been a lively morning at Paddy Power’s headquarters as punters have been eager to take up the firm’s offer of being best price on Dawn Approach in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes at 3.05pm.

 

Godolphin’s colt is 11/10 favourite from 11/8 and Paddy Power spokesman Paul Binfield commented: “We have been knocked off the boards this morning as we’ve pledged to be top price Dawn Approach all day. Punters are lapping it up.”

 

In contrast, Toronado has been weak with Ladbrokes and pushed out to 9/4 from 7/4.

Good to Soft.

Clerk of the course Seamus Buckley reported a dry night. There has been some drizzle since 8am but that is expected to clear away by 10am.

Buckley said: “I have left the going at Good to Soft even though the ground is beginning to improve.

“The GoingStick reading at 9am was 7.2 as against 6.8 before racing yesterday.

“This drizzle won’t have a measurable impact and I expect better conditions as the day goes on.
