First Race 2.10 The Finnforest Oh So Sharp Stakes - Group Three
Win Quotes
CONFIDENCE PAYS OFF

Marco Botti, trainer of winner Raymi Coya, was very confident ahead of the race and was subsequently delighted with the filly’s game half-length win at 15/2.


He said: “We couldn’t have had her in better shape. The only question mark was whether she would see out a stiff seven furlongs at Newmarket but Kerrin McEvoy gave her a perfect ride and it looks like she stays.


“This was the target - for her to win a Group Three - and we’ll have to have a little think now.


“This is probably it for the season. We’ll put her away and hope that she winters well but I think we have a nice filly for next year.”

Winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy commented: “They did not go much of a pace early on and she was a bit keen but she picked up well at the end of the race.


“She gave me a nice feel and did it well.”

GROUND AFTER THE FIRST RACE


Kerrin McEvoy, rider of the winner Raymi Coya, said the ground was “Good to firm.”

John Egan, jockey of Annie Skates, said “Quick, a little quicker than yesterday.”

Ryan Moore, jockey of Dream Day, said “Good to firm.”

Richard Hughes, jockey of Joffe’s Run, said the ground was “Nearly firm, very fast.”

Phillip Robinson, rider of Rosa Grace, reported “Fast.”

Richard Hills, rider of Royal Confidence, described the ground as “Good to firm.”

Jimmy Fortune, jockey of Step Softly, thought the going “Good, good to firm with no jar.”

Simon Whitworth, jockey of Then ‘n Now, described the going as “Fairly fast.”

COUNTRYWIDE STEEL AND TUBES JOEL STAKES

CREACHADOIR IS HORSE OF STEEL

Kerrin McEvoy has made a brilliant start to totesport.com Cambridgeshire day by taking the first two races, including the Countrywide Steel And Tubes Joel Stakes with Creachadoir by three lengths from Tell, for a 30.9/1 double.


Godolphin and McEvoy were taking the Group 3 race for the second year running following the victory of Satchem last season.


Diana Cooper, representing Godolphin, said of the winning three-year-old, who was making his debut for his new stable following a sixth for Irish trainer Jim Bolger on his last start in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot: “It is very nice to get a win under his belt in the new colours.


“He is a classy horse, but we knew that already. We have no specific plans, but there are plenty of opportunities. If he’s well, running him again this season will certainly be considered.

“It’s been a while since he ran in June and he’s having a nice blow. It’s lovely to see him spot on and in good form.”

McEvoy added: “He has travelled really well during the race. There was a good pace and he picked up nicely like a good horse should.


“I was expecting him to win - his form stands for itself. After a nice break, he will improve from that and hopefully, he will be a good horse for us next year.”

Place Quotes

PLACED CONNECTIONS PLEASED WITH PERFORMANCES

A delighted John Dunlop, trainer of 66/1 runner-up Tell who was beaten three lengths by favourite Creachadoir, said: “Beforehand, he looked bit out of his class but he won well when leading last time so we thought we’d take our chance today.


“It was a great effort. He’s in the horses-in-training sale here in Newmarket later in the month.”


Chris Richardson, representing Cheveley Park Stud, owner and breeder of third-placed Heaven Sent, commented: “We’re thrilled. She’s a game and consistent filly and the trip over a mile is short enough for her.


“She’s most effective over 10 furlongs so we’re very pleased to be in the frame.


“She may go for a 10-furlong Stakes race here in a few weeks but we’ll have to see how she is after this. It’s so easy for fillies to go over the top at this time of year.”

Third Race 3.20 The Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes - Winning Quotes

MAJESTIC ROI TO STAY IN TRAINING AFTER SUN CHARIOT THRILLER

Overturning the strongly-fancied Cheveley Park duo of Nannina and Echelon, Majestic Roi claimed her first Group One victory in style with a sustained late run under Darryll Holland.


Trainer Mick Channon said of the 16/1 winner: “She doesn’t like soft ground but the ground was right for her today and that’s just fillies at this time of year.


“I would hope she’ll stay in training next year, she’s only just got the hang of racing. Little things have gone wrong all year but she’s beginning to settle better.


“It’s a big day for all of us.”

Bruce Raymond, racing manager to owner Jaber Abdullah, commented: “She stays in training this year.”

Winning jockey Darryll Holland added: “She has previously been a bit unlucky. She needs a very good pace.


“This is the first time she’s had a good pace. The boss said to ride her with confidence, not like a 20/1 shot.


“She deserved that as she has been running in top-class company all year. They came a bit close but that is what racing is all about. She was very brave in the finish. I got in Johnny Murtagh’s slipstream and then pulled her out.”

The placings remained unaltered after a stewards’ enquiry.




THIRD RACE QUOTES
KINGDOM OF BAHRAIN SUN CHARIOT STAKES

CHEVELEY PARK TAKES MINOR HONOURS

The Cheveley Park Stud was just denied a second success in the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes when its Nannina and Echelon finished second and third behind Majestic Roi, three-quarters of a length and a length adrift of the winner.


The stewards held an inquiry into interference as the horses approached the dip, but the placings remained unaltered.


John Gosden, Nannina’s trainer who was successful in this contest with Ristna in 1991, said: “She ran well but hit the front a bit soon. That wasn’t her fault and she travelled well and Jimmy took her there. She played about a bit when she hit the front, but it was a really good run.


“It was a pity that nothing carried her a bit further.”

Sir Michael Stoute, trainer of Echelon, who has won the race three times courtesy of Triple First (1977), Kartajana (1990) and Cheveley Park’s Peeress two years’ ago, said: “She was as game as ever and just got interfered with by the second and the winner. That didn’t help her cause.”

Chris Richardson, managing director of the Cheveley Park Stud, said: “Nannina hits the front and feels the job is done. Echelon ran extremely well and got hampered twice, once by our filly and once by the winner.


“It didn’t help that it happened on two occasions when she was crossed. She was just getting a second wind when she got crossed again and there wouldn’t have been much in it.


“The winner won impressively but our filles ran extremely well. Neither owes us anything and they have been very consistent.”



FORTUNE SUSPENDED

The stewards adjudged that Jimmy Fortune, rider of Nannina, second in the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes, had interfered with Echelon, placed third, which in turn interfered with Simply Perfect, which was placed fourth.


They found Fortune guilty of careless riding and he was suspended for one day on Wednesday, October 17.

PIPEDREAMER LANDS PUBLIC PLUNGE

Fears this morning that connections might pull Pipedreamer out of the totesport.com Cambridgeshire on account of the fastish ground came to nothing and the progressive three-year-old duly justified 5-1 favouritism to hit the bookies in one of the biggest betting races of the campaign.


Winning trainer John Gosden, who landed the race with Halling in 1994, said: “That was a good effort and he did it well. He had a nice draw which helped and a nice clean run up the middle.


“For two months we’ve been waiting to run him and there were no excuses not to and when I walked the course this morning, it was fine with no jar in it.


“If it had been sunny and breezy for the last two days, I might have thought otherwise, but the stick went in and we ran.


“I was worried on the first day when it was sunny, but I wanted to run for the public although the horse must come first and fortunately both came together. I very much wanted to run as the horse had been so hyped up and the public loaded on and when people are betting a £100 or £200 it is in your mind. I wouldn’t have pulled out lightly, but I am happy.


“Halling was a very progressive horse and won Eclipses - it is a long way from winning the Cambridgeshire to an Eclipse.


“Steve Cauthen liked Halling and the plan was the Cambridgeshire. This horse has raced through the year and is progressive and could be an Earl Of Sefton Stakes horse next year and could run in the Listed Jane Seymour Stakes here over ten furlongs on Saturday, November 3.


“The hype surrounding him was not totally wrong but in a race like the Cambridgeshire, I thought that it was a bit daft with people thinking that he has just got to turn up. I thought that he was getting too many headlines for a handicap win, but my comments were slightly to defend our horse.


“I said to Jimmy [Fortune, jockey] that if he was travelling well, to go on. Unlike Nannina in the previous race, he doesn’t play about when he hits the front. Nannina just plays and when she goes by, she thinks: ‘Right, I’ll go for a cup of tea now.”

DOCOFTHEBAY JUST MISSES OUT AGAIN
Paul Dixon, president of the Racehorse Owners’ Association and owner of Cambridgeshire runner-up Docofthebay, was ruing the one that got away after his three-year-old gelding was unable to reel in winner Pipedreamer, going down by a length despite a determined late run.


Dixon, who also heads the Horsemen’s Group, said: “That’s twice in two weeks we should have won the big one but it’s still a nice bit of prize money.”

Docofthebay’s trainer Jamie Osborne concurred:: “It’s never good to finish second but he’s run another good race. He’s never been out of the first three in his life.


“The way he’s improved this year, his days in handicaps are numbered and he’ll have to take another step up in class next year.”


Loraine Ellison, representing her father Brian Ellison, trainer of third-placed Teslin, felt the draw scuppered the gelding’s winning chance.


She said: “He was really unlucky, another furlong and he’d have won it. I was really impressed when he hit the front - he put his head down and went on.


“J-P (Guillambert) gave him a cracking ride and he’ll keep the ride on him now when he goes to Dubai.


“He’s the unluckiest horse in the race as he had a really bad draw.”


Yarqus, fourth at 33/1, left his connections satisfied, with Bruce Raymond, racing manager to owner Saeed Manana, commenting: “We’re very happy with him. He’s always consistent and this race really suited him.


The four-year-old’s trainer Clive Brittain added: “There were a lot of very good horses in the race so we’re really pleased.”

TALK OF SAAFEND IS TALK OF NEWMARKET

John Remblance, whose company JBR Leisure Ltd sponsors one of the popular Newmarket Nights at the July Course, endured an anxious few minutes until the objection to his winner Talk Of Saafend by the trainer of the runner-up Vince Smith was withdrawn.


He declared: “I’m thrilled! Ecstatic! She really deserved that having run a very good race last time at Doncaster. She’s a really tough little filly.”

Richard Hannon Jnr, son of trainer Richard Hannon, was similarly relieved and said: “She’s been unlucky not to win before now as she’s run really well all season.


“She’s very sweet and we’ll try to find another race for her now. Hopefully, she’ll carry on next year.”

Vince Smith, trainer of runner-up Dalkey Girl, said: “It was bang on the line [where the winner interfered with the second] and under the old rules, the winner crucified the third and fourth. But I have withdrawn the objection.”


KINSELLA SUSPENDED

The stewards adjudged that David Kinsella, rider of Talk Of Saafend, winner of the EBF Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery Handicap, had interfered with Feisty Royale, placed third, which in turn interfered with Geestring, which was placed fourth.


They found Kinsella guilty of careless riding and he was suspended for three days on Wednesday, October 17 to Friday, October 19 inclusive.

CELTIC SULTAN CROWNED

Celtic Sultan provided Tadcaster-based trainer Tom Tate with some consolation for Welsh Emperor’s earlier second, the same position for a second year running, in the Group 1 Prix de la Foret at Longchamp, by winning the totesport 0800 221 221 Handicap by one length from Sir Xaar.


The handler chose to go to Paris, but winning jockey Micky Fenton said: “Seven furlongs on good to firm ground is perfect - it was too soft at Chester last time. I thought the step up to seven would suit him better.


“He is quite a nice horse and will be better next year. I’ve been going up to Mr Tate’s since January and I’ve been riding for him. I’ve had eight winners for him now and it’s paid off.”

BLINKERS REJUVENATE RUNNER-UP SIR XAAR


Stakes-winning juvenile Sir Xaar appeared to have improved on this season’s form with the addition of headgear for the first time when running a length second to all-the-way winner Celtic Sultan.


Nick Tritton, manager of the Pinnacle Xaar Partnership which owns the colt, said: “We’re happy enough with that. The blinkers seem to have woken him up a bit as he’s been losing interest.


“The handicapper hasn’t been terribly kind to him. He was a very good two-year-old and he’s come down the handicap very slowly so has struggled a bit.”


Rae Guest, trainer of Daniella, who was another three-quarters of a length back in third, said: “She’s got lots of ability but she keeps a lot back for herself.

“She’s a homebred and her owners have had a lot of fun with her. She’s won three and has been Listed-placed but it would be nice to get her to show a bit more.”

DOUBLE DELIGHT FOR HANNON STABLE

Malt Or Mash delivered a hard-fought win in the closing race of the Cambridgeshire Meeting to give Richard Hannon’s Wiltshire yard a double on the day following the nursery win of Talk Of Saafend.


Richard Hannon Jnr said of the three-year-old: “We’re quietly hoping he’s going to be an Ebor horse for next year. That’s his lot for this year.”

He added: “When we bought him, we thought he was going to be a three or four-year-old so he’s done well to win what he has. He’s a star.”


PIPEDREAMER RUNS

Pipedreamer, the favourite for today’s £160,000 totesport.com Cambridgeshire at Newmarket, will run in the race a stable spokesman said at 11.30am.


There had been a doubt about the three-year-old’s appearance because of the good to firm going.



PIPEDREAMS MAY BE FULFILLED

If John Gosden can win the totesport.com Cambridgeshire for a second time with Pipedreamer, the sponsors of the £160,000 handicap may have to hitch home to their head office in Wigan.


The progressive three-year-old was a 12/1 chance when the bookmaker opened its market on the race, but is now a 6/1 shot after the firm laid the horse to lose a six-figure sum ante-post. The local trainer’s supporters had one of their biggest ‘touches’ when Halling landed a monumental gamble in this heat in 1994.


On hearing the news this morning that Pipedreamer will definitely take part, his participation having been questionable as the ground has quickened, Damian Walker, totesport’s racecourse PR manager, said: “It will be very interesting to see how much more money is bet on the horse now that we know he runs as he is our worst result.

“Gosden’s other horse, Escape Route, has been backed as well and he is our second worst result.”

Before Pipedreamer’s confirmation, totesport reported that they had been very busy with a lot of action each-way with a number of contenders being backed.


The Clive Brittain-trained Yarqus is now 33/1 (from 50), while Night Cru is 28/1 (from 33) and Docofthebay is 10/1 (from 12).


Walker added: “We are looking forward to the totesport.com Cambridgeshire as it is one of the jewels in our sponsorship crown. It is a highly-competitive handicap and one of the big races of the year.


“By going five places each-way, and that concession is also available with Gary Wiltshire on the rails at Newmarket, our turnover on the race is massive.


“This is one of the most important races regarding how firms get on during the year, and I remember that when Blue Monday prevailed a couple of years ago, we lost £250,000 which left a massive hole in our coffers.”



GOING NOW GOOD TO FIRM

Michael Prosser, Newmarket’s Director of Racing & Clerk of the Course, has changed the going to Good to Firm from yesterday’s Good, Good to Firm in places. The GoingStick reading is currently 8.9, while it was 8.5 yesterday.


He said this morning: “It was dry overnight and regarding the ground, we are exactly where we thought we would be.


“The forecast is for it to be overcast with a temperature of 17C with some sunshine breaking through and generally a pleasant autumnal day.


“It is lovely fast ground and is still an excellent racing surface.


“The track is 36 metres wide to accommodate the 35 runners in the totesport.com Cambridgeshire. The stalls are on the far rail today, as they were yesterday, while on Thursday, they were located on the stands’ side.”

Echelon
The purchase of Exclusive Order for $825,000 at the 1987 Keeneland November Sale by David Minton on behalf of Cheveley Park Stud has proved inspired. Her son Entrepreneur won the 1997 2000 Guineas and daughters Dance A Dream and Exclusive respectively finished second in the Oaks and won the Coronation Stakes. The legacy continues as Exclusive’s daughter Chic and Echelon are now both Group 1 winners. Echelon’s first top-level success came last time out when she won the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown on September 8. Echelon won a Newmarket maiden on her debut and a two-year-old and finished seventh in the Fillies’ Mile on her only other start that year. As a three-year-old her best efforts included a victory in the Listed Valiant Stakes at Newbury and the Listed October Stakes at Newmarket. She improved last season to win the Group 3 Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes at Lingfield and Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom and also finished two-lengths runner-up to Soviet Song in the Group 2 Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot. This year she took the Group 3 StanJamesUK Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket on her seasonal comeback before landing the Princess Elizabeth Stakes for a second year. After finishing fifth in the Windsor Forest Stakes and sixth in the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh she went on to land the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood before her Matron Stakes victory, when beating Red Evie by a length and a half.

Cheveley Park Stud
Horses have been bred at Cheveley Park Stud, on the outskirts of Newmarket, for more than 1,000 years and the stud has been owned since 1975 by David and Patricia Thompson. It is the most successful British-owned breeding operation in the country. Stretching to 960 acres, its umbrella also also encompasses Sandwich, Warren Hill and Ashley Heath studs. Managed since 1987 by Chris Richardson, Cheveley Park Stud races most of the horses it produces although it sold the 1997 2000 Guineas winner Entrepreneur and this season’s St James’s Palace Stakes hero Excellent Art as yearlings. Russian Rhythm, a sales purchase, brought Classic glory when winning the 2003 1000 Guineas, going on to land both the Coronation Stakes and Nassau Stakes. The stud operation houses around 120 broodmares and stallions include Britain’s dearest sire Pivotal, who stood for £85,000 in 2007, his son Kyllachy, home-breds Medicean, Iceman and Carnival Dancer as well as Where Or When. Dutch Art is likely to retire to Cheveley Park next year. North London-based David Thompson is a former Smithfield meat trader, who first made his business mark with the Hillsdown Holdings food group, which he later sold in two separate deals for about £300 million. In the 2007 Sunday Times Rich List the Thompson family, including entrepreneur son Richard, is ranked 165th with assets of £480 million. They have enjoyed a great year on the racecourse thanks to the likes of Echelon, winner of the Group 1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown, and Nannina, who landed the Group 2 Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot having taken a Group 1 for the past two seasons. Other past Group 1 stars include Red Bloom, Confidential Lady, Regal Rose, Exclusive, Peeress, Pivotal and Chorist. The Thompsons also won the 1992 John Smith’s Grand National with Party Politics, who was bought a couple of days before the race and still lives at the stud. Their nine trainers - all in Newmarket - are headed by Sir Michael Stoute, a director of the stud, and Sir Mark Prescott and also include Peter Chapple-Hyam, Ed Dunlop, James Fanshawe, John Gosden, William Haggas, Michael Jarvis and Jeremy Noseda.

Sir Michael Stoute
Born in Barbados on October 22, 1945, where his father was chief of police, Michael Stoute came to Britain in 1965 to nurture his love of racing. He joined Pat Rohan at Malton before moving to Newmarket three years later to work for Doug Smith and then Tom Jones. Stoute took out a public licence to train in 1972, recording his first success that year when Sandal won at Newmarket on April 28. Since then he has been at the top of his profession and has been champion trainer nine times - in 1981, 1986, 1989, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2005 and 2006. The year 2000 was memorable for Stoute when his horses included 2000 Guineas winner King’s Best and Kalanisi, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Turf and Emirates Airline Champion Stakes while in 2001 Golan gave Stoute his fifth 2000 Guineas. A terrific 1997 was headed by the two older horses Singspiel and Pilsudski. Four Group One successes went Pilsudski’s way - the Coral-Eclipse, Irish Champion Stakes, Emirates Airline Champion Stakes and Japan Cup, while Singspiel won the Dubai World Cup, the Coronation Cup and the Juddmonte International. Stoute has won the Epsom Derby four times - with Shergar in 1981, Shahrastani five years later, Kris Kin in 2003 and North Light the following year but - despite five seconds from 25 runners - he has yet to win the Ladbrokes St Leger. His long list of big-race successes also includes the 2000 Guineas (five times), 1000 Guineas (twice), King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (three times), Vodafone Oaks (twice), the Irish Derby (three times), Irish Oaks (six times), Irish 1000 Guineas and Irish 2000 Guineas as well as many other races across the globe. Stoute, who was knighted in 1998 for his services to sport and tourism in Barbados, trains at Freemason Lodge, Newmarket. He has enjoyed this season Group One victories when Notnowcato landed the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown in July and Echelon landed the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown.Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes wins: 1977 TRIPLE FIRST; 1990 KARTAJANA; 2005 PEERESS

Ryan Moore
Ryan Moore, who was born on September 18, 1983, was champion apprentice in 2003 with 59 winners and champion jockey just three years later in 2006, when he recorded 182 victories. He comes from a racing family steeped in history. His late grandfather Charlie was a trainer, Brighton-based dad Gary, a former jump jockey, is a successful trainer under both codes, while mum Jayne was an accomplished amateur rider, as was his aunt Candy Morris. His older brother Jamie is a successful jump jockey while his sister Hayley has also ridden a winner under rules. His youngest brother, Josh, is also active in the local pony club and expected to follow his siblings into a riding career. Ryan Moore’s career began over hurdles, when making a winning debut as an amateur on Mersey Beat at Towcester on May 15, 2000. His first major success on the Flat came as a 5lb claimer when he captured the 2002 Cesarewitch at Newmarket on the Martin Pipe-trained Miss Fara. Many major stables now utilise his talents, including those of Richard Hannon, to whom he was apprenticed, Sir Michael Stoute and Amanda Perrett. He enjoyed a first Group One success on Sir Michael’s Notnowcato in the 2006 Juddmonte International and partnered the same horse to victory in the 2007 Coral-Eclipse, when under an enterprising ride he raced alone on the stands’ side where the better ground was to be found. He also enjoyed Group One glory last month aboard Echelon in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown. Moore suffered a complex fracture of his right arm following a fall at Lingfield on March 16, 2007, and missed three months of this season as a result. He has been in storming form since returning to action and has got a century up again this season. No previous Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes wins

NANNIINA
Home-bred by David and Patricia Thompson’s Cheveley Park Stud in Newmarket, Nannina is a dual Group One winner. After making a winning debut at Pontefract in June, 2005, the daughter of Medicean finished a close fifth in the Group Two Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket’s July Meeting and third in the Group Three Princess Margaret Stakes at Newbury. All of her first three races were over six furlongs. She then appeared to be suited by stepping up in trip when winning the final two races of her two-year-old career. On August 28, 2005, she was victorious in the Group Three Prestige Stakes at Goodwood. After starting slowly, she stayed on resolutely to prevail by a length and a quarter from Rising Cross. That effort was followed by her first Group One success in the Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket on September 24, when she again stayed on well in the closing stages and proved a short-head too strong for Alexandrova. The fillies she beat went on to be first and second the following year in the Vodafone Oaks, with Alexandrova beating Rising Cross. Nannina’s three-year-old career did not begin very well when she finished a well-beaten 12th, on unsuitably soft ground behind Speciosa in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket. However, she put that run firmly behind her when winning her second Group One on her next start of 2006 in the Group One Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. She took up the running over a furlong out and registered a smooth two-length success over Flashy Wings. Following Royal Ascot, Nannina ran four more times in 2006, all in Group One company. After going down by three-quarters of a length to Rajeem in the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket, she finished an admirable third behind Ouija Board and Alexandra Goldrun in the Blue Square Nassau Stakes at Goodwood. Her final two runs of 2006 were both overseas. She was fourth to Red Evie in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown in September while the following month she came fifth to Mandesha in the Prix Vermeille at Longchamp. This season saw Nannina start off by finishing third to Echelon, also owned by Cheveley Park Stud, in the Group Three Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom before making a winning return to Royal Ascot, where she was the comfortable three-length winner of the Group Two Windsor Forest Stakes. Her latest appearance saw her finish third, beaten just over three lengths, behind Simply Perfect in the Group One Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on July 11.Nannina encountered a rough passage in the Blue Square Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and lost all chance when hampered twice at least. She reportedly has been working well since.

JOHN GOSDEN
John Gosden was born on March 30, 1951, the son of trainer Towser Gosden. Towser Gosden trained at Lewes, close to Goodwood, before moving to Heath House in Newmarket. He combined training both flat and jump horses, with his best performer being the 1960 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes victor Aggressor, while he also handled the 1966 Derby winner Charlottown during his juvenile career. After Cambridge University, John Gosden served as assistant to Sir Noel Murless from 1974 to 1975 and Vincent O'Brien from 1976 to 1977, where he was involved with great horses such as The Minstrel. In 1980 he then embarked a successful training career in America, winning the 1984 Breeders' Cup Mile with Royal Heroine and sending out Bates Motel to Grade One victories in the Monmouth Handicap, San Antonio Handicap and Santa Anita Handicap among many big-race wins. In 1988 he took out his first licence in Britain and established himself as a leading trainer on these shores at Newmarket, having his best season in 1992 when he recorded 113 wins. Gosden has made a notable impression in the Vodafone Derby, filling two of the places in 1995, training subsequent St Leger winner Shantou to finish third in 1996 and then having a first success in the Classic courtesy of Benny The Dip in 1997. His third British Classic success was with Lahan in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket in 2000, the first season that Gosden trained at the famous Manton Estate in Wiltshire. He was previously based at Newmarket in Stanley House Stables and returned to headquarters after the 2005 season and is now settled at Clarehaven Stables on the Bury Road. His initial Goodwood winner came at the Festival meeting when Thakib was successful in the Surplice Stakes on August 4, 1990. Exactly 17 years later he will be hoping for his biggest success at Goodwood when Nannina runs in the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes on Saturday, August 4, 2007. The race looks like being a hot one, with French challenger Mandesha and the two fillies who have fought out the finish of the English and Irish Oaks, Light Shift and Peeping Fawn, also among the likely participants in the near10-furlong event. Gosden won the Blue Square Nassau Stakes in 1997 with Ryafan when it was a Group Two event. He has had 25 winners at Glorious Goodwood and 100 winners in all at the Sussex track. Other good horses to have been trained by Gosden include the champion sprinter Oasis Dream, Irish Champion Stakes winner Muhtarram, Queen Elizabeth II Stakes victor Observatory, Prix Maurice de Gheest heroine May Ball, Golden Jubilee Stakes scorer Malhub, Coronation Stakes victor Nannina and Challenge Stakes winner Sleeping Indian. His list of owners includes Sheikh Mohammed, Hamdan Al Maktoum, the Sangster family, George Strawbridge, Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, William Farish, Khalid Abdulla, Princess Haya of Jordan, Cheveley Park Stud and Lady Lloyd-Webber. He is married to Rachel Hood, a barrister and vice president of the Racehorse Owners' Association. The couple have four children. Previous Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes wins: 1991 RISTNA

JIMMY FORTUNE
Born in Ireland on June 14, 1972, Jimmy Fortune gained his initial grounding in racing with Jim Bolger in Co Carlow. He then came over to Britain and rode his first winner at Thirsk aboard the Eric Alston-trained Hitchenstown on July 29, 1988. The following year, he won the Ayr Gold Cup on Joveworth, trained by Mike O’Neill, to whom he was apprenticed. In 1990, his 46 victories won him the apprentices’ championship. Having had a spell with Luca Cumani, he then became first rider to David Barron’s stable near Thirsk, for whom he won the 1994 Stewards’ Cup on For The Present and the same race two years later on Coastal Bluff, who later that season gave Fortune his second Ayr Gold Cup success. The departure of Kieren Fallon to become first rider to Henry Cecil saw Fortune take over as stable jockey to Lynda Ramsden in 1997. In the autumn of 1998, he was approached to become retained rider to owner Robert Sangster, and that association yielded its first major success with Commander Collins in the Group One Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster that October. The retainer came to an end in 2002 but he has continued to be linked most strongly with trainer John Gosden who trained at Manton until 2005. Other big-race victories have come in the Gimcrack Stakes (2006 Conquest), July Stakes (2004 Captain Hurricane), Middle Park Stakes (2002 Oasis Dream), Royal Hunt Cup (2002 Norton), Sun Chariot Stakes (1999 Lady In Waiting), totesport.com Handicap (2006 All Ivory), Meon Valley Stud Fillies’ Mile (2004 Playful Act; 2005 Nannina), Royal Lodge Stakes (2005 Leo), Cantor Spreadfair Sussex Stakes (2006 Court Masterpiece) and Yorkshire Cup (2007 Sergeant Cecil). He enjoyed a terrific Royal Ascot this year, riding five winners. Lucarno gave him a first Classic winner in the 2007 Ladbrokes St Leger.

Very progressive mare this season, having succeeded at Group One level for the first time in Ireland’s Matron Stakes last time out after taking the Group Two Celebration Mile at Goodwood.
BP= 2/1

2(2) 5-1501 Harvest Queen 28 Peter Makin 4-9-02 Eddie Ahern
Twice a Listed winner this year - most recently at Goodwood - but she has plenty to fin against this lot..BP= 16/1

3(3) 5-3148 Nannina 63 John Gosden 4-9-02 Jimmy Fortune
Nannina suffered badly in a rough race for the Nassau Stakes and that run can be forgotten. She is better judged on her Royal Ascot victory and cannot be ignored. BP= 7/2

4(9) 6-2726 Speciosa 63 Pam Sly 4-9-02 Micky Fenton
The 1,000 Guineas winner two years ago. She has not won since but has run some good races this season. However, she is much better suited by give in the ground. BP= 11/1

5(8) -14143 Wake Up Maggie 21 Chris Wall 4-9-02 George Baker
Third in Group Two at Doncaster last time. Best form when she won Group Two Hungerford Stakes at Newbury from Red Evie on softish ground and may be best on that type of surface. BP= 9/1

6(1) 012479 Barshiba 28 David Elsworth 3-8-13 Richard Quinn
Won handicap at Royal Ascot on fast ground and fourth in French Group One on softish ground. Form has tailed off since. BP= 40/1

Won Newbury Listed race earlier this year over 10 furlongs but does not have the form at this distance. BP= 66/1

8(7) -12754 Majestic Roi 23 Mick Channon 3-8-13 Darryll Holland
Lightly raced sort who still has scope but she need to improve sharply to take a hand here. BP= 20/1

9(4) 1-3613 Simply Perfect 69 Jeremy Noseda 3 8-13 Johnny Murtagh
Very useful sort. Third in the Guineas and won the Falmouth Stakes at the Newmarket July Festival. Third to Darjina at Deauville last time on softer ground than may have suited. BP= 3/1
