FRANKEL FRUSTRATES THE HEADLINE WRITERS

 

The BBC’s 10 o’clock news may have spoiled the party atmosphere by choosing to run a piece about the use of the whip in horseracing on the opening day of Royal Ascot but the papers were in agreement that, as usual, it is a meeting to savour.

 

The greatest amount of coverage was given to Ascot fashion and members of the Royal family. Eye-catching models and footballers’ wives in wild and wonderful hats graced many of the front pages under imaginative tabloid headlines such as “Royal Hats-cot”, while the back pages were largely reserved for debate on Frankel’s narrow victory over Zoffany in the St James’s Palace Stakes.

 

The Telegraph claimed the manner of his win “left many scratching their heads”,a theme echoed throughout the media, with a fair sprinkling of criticism for Tom Queally’s ride aboard the “wonder horse”.

 

The Guardian’s Paul Hayward signed off his analysis of the race with the lines: “Patience and timing are everything. The coup de grace cannot be delivered so early that it invites calamity.”

 

Such was the hype surrounding Frankel and the newly knighted Sir Henry Cecil that Canford Cliffs, who was recording his third consecutive win on the opening day of the Royal Meeting, was reduced to a near bit-part player.

 

His beating of last year’s Queen Anne Stakes winner Goldikova was called in to question thanks to the mare’s rider Olivier Peslier weighing in two pounds overweight but Canford Cliffs’ jockey Richard Hughes remains in no doubt, claiming his mount to be “the best horse I’ve ever ridden”.

 

 

 

LUCKY THIRTEEN LINE UP FOR FRIDAY’S CORONATION STAKES

 

Thursday of the Royal Meeting may traditionally be known as Ladies’ Day but it is the turn of the blueblooded three-year-old fillies to shine on Friday in the feature race of the day, the Group 1 Coronation Stakes.

 

Thirteen runners have been declared, including two winners at last year’s meeting, Memory, who landed the Albany Stakes, and Queen Mary Stakes winner Maqaasid.

 

They are joined by the Aidan O’Brien-trained Together, boasting perhaps the smartest form of the season to date, having been runner-up in both the Qipco 1000 Guineas and Irish 1,000 Guineas.

 

Barefoot Lady won the Nell Gwyn Stakes before finishing fifth in the 1000 Guineas and runner-up in the Musidora Stakes at York, while another of this year’s star performers is French raider Immortal Verse, who won the Group 2 Prix de Sandrigham at Chantilly on June 5.

 

Another French challenger is Nova Hawk, who was fourth in both the 1000 Guineas and Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, but she has not had the longest trip to get here as that honour goes to the American-trained More Than Real, winner last year of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies’ Turf.

 

Princess Haya’s Joviality has been progressive this season, finishing runner-up in a conditions race at Sandown before winning the Musidora Stakes at York, the scene of Theyskens’ Theory’s sole victory this year. The Brian Meehan-trained filly win the Listed Micheal Seeley Memorial Stakes on her only start of the season.

                                                                  

Jim Bolger sent out Lush Lashes to win the Coronation Stakes in 2008 and this year he fields Claiomh Solais, whose busy season has included a fourth-place finish in the Irish 1,000 Guineas.

 

Cheveley Park Stud have also enjoyed success in the Coronation Stakes - winning the race with Exclusive (1998), Russian Rhythm (2003) and Nannina (2006) - and this year’s homebred contender is Clinical, who was third in the Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes on Oaks day at Epsom.

 

The Andrew Balding-trained I Love Me and Elshabakiya from the Clive Brittain stable complete a competitive line-up.

FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES

JERSEY STAKES

STRONG SUIT BACK TO BEST

 

            Last season’s Coventry Stakes winner Strong Suit bounced back to his best in the opening Jersey Stakes to score by half a length under Richard Hughes.

            The Richard Hannon-trained colt, who is owned by Julie Wood, had had a wind operation since his previous appearance in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury in April.

            “You never heard him going past you but Hughsie said a couple of times that he was gulping and pulling up. I couldn’t believe the way he ran at Newbury, “said Hannon. “So we put an overhead camera on him and you could see that he was closing up.

            “It’s quite a new thing but they put a camera up his nose and down his throat and you can watch as he was working.

            “We took him to Kempton the other day with Canford Cliffs to do a bit of work and he worked brilliantly. I didn’t quite believe what I saw but the two of them pulled well clear of a decent horse.

            “The breathing affected his confidence - the further he was going, the more his throat was closing. Obviously, it frightened him and he lost his confidence. It looks like he has got it back!

            “He had a 5lb penalty today so he has done a very good job of that against some good horses after quite a break since Newbury. A mile wouldn’t worry him.

            “I told everybody to have a few quid on him today and I should have had a couple of hundred on myself. Anyway, it’s nice to have a winner at Ascot.

            “We’ve always loved the horse and after he won the Coventry we thought he was a Guineas horse. I think he was probably suffering at Newmarket in the Middle Park Stakes last year because he was stopping there.”

 

            Richard Hughes added: “I knew how good he was from the Coventry Stakes last year and I think he definitely did it (had breathing problems) in Ireland last year because I came back in and said that he just cut liked someone had shot him.

            “We had him scoped after that and he was perfect so we were scratching our heads because he never seemed the same. His work in the spring was OK but then he got the wobbles in the Greenham, so then we got the camera on him and that revealed exactly how badly he was suffering. You never know after an operation what will happen but it has obviously been a great success. Whoever has operated on him has done a great job.

            “He was flowing again today - he couldn’t do that when his breathing was affecting him - and he moved brilliantly.

            “Julie keeps horses to get to Ascot so I’m delighted for her and the horse deserved to be here. I’m not sure where he will go now but there’s the three-year-old Group One at Chantilly (Prix Jean Prat).”

 

 

First race - The Jersey Stakes

Runner-up quotes

 

CODEMASTER DOESN’T QUITE CRACK THE JERSEY BUT PLENTY MORE TO COME

 

Codemaster did not quite deliver a birthday win for Sheikh Fahad Al-Thani, who has horses with his brothers under the Qatar Bloodstock banner, but the three-year-old came very close and pleased his trainer Henry Candy in the process with a half-length second to the rejuvenated Strong Suit.

 

The lightly-raced colt, who started 7/4 favourite, has now made just five racecourse appearances and has always finished in the first two.

 

“He did nothing wrong at all. I’m delighted with him but that’s just a very nice horse of Richard’s [Hannon] and clearly the wind operation worked for him,” said Candy.

 

“He [Codemaster] just lacks a little bit of size but when you see him in action he looks big enough. He’ll get an extra furlong I think but at the moment we haven’t decided what he’ll do next.”

 

He added: “Hopefully, there’s plenty more to come and not many horses come this far without ever being out of the first two.”

Jersey Stakes

 

NOSEDA HOPING FOR AUTUMN JOY WITH WESTERN ARISTOCRAT

 

Western Aristocrat may have lost his unbeaten tag in the Group Three Jersey Stakes but trainer Jeremy Noseda is looking to a bright future for the lightly-raced colt.

 

The three-year-old headed into the seven-furlong contest with a two from two record, having landed a Newmarket maiden last term and a Haydock handicap on his previous start, and took another step forward when coming home third, three quarters of a length behind the victorious Strong Suit.

 

Noseda said of the 9/2 shot: "I'm delighted - the horse ran well. Looking at it, I'm now thinking I should perhaps have run him in a handicap.

 

"We will get him home and have a look at it but after that I am inclined to think that we might go up to a mile. It might be the thing to do to drop him into a conditions race over a mile. He's a little bit immature and I want him to get that experience he needs.

 

"He has proven today that he is a Group horse already but by the autumn I hope he might be going on and winning Group races."

 

Johnny Murtagh was also pleased with his mount who settled towards the rear as last-placed Utley set a quick tempo through the first five furlongs.

 

The rider commented: "He ran very well. It was a bit of a funny race. The winner went fast and we went slow and when he quickened, my horse just got a bit tapped for toe."

 

GOING AFTER THE FIRST RACE

 

Richard Hughes, rider of the half-length 11/1 victor Strong Suit, described today’s going as: “Beautiful good ground.”

 

Dane O’Neill, jockey of the second-placed 7/4 favourite Codemaster, said: “Good.”

 

Johnny Murtagh, partner of third Western Aristocrat, said: “It maybe be just a bit quicker than yesterday.”

 

Ryan Moore, rider of fourth Oracle, said: “Good.”

 

Frankie Dettori, partner of Splash Point, said: “Good to firm.”

 

Christophe Soumillon, rider of Havane Smoker, said: “Good.”

 

Paul Hanagan, partner of Majestic Myles, said: “Just on the fast side of good.”

 

Phillip Robinson, on board Sikeeb, thought the going: “Perfect.”

 

William Buick, jockey of Utley, said: “It is just the same as yesterday, good ground.”

Windsor Forest Stakes

 

DOLLY DELIVERS IN WINDSOR FOREST

 

"She likes being busy, she gets fat quick," was Fozzy Stack's summation after Lolly For Dolly gave his father, trainer Tommy Stack, his first Royal Ascot victory in the Group Two Windsor Forest Stakes.

The four-year-old Oratorio filly, sent off at 11/1, had already raced four times this season, winning a pair of Group Three races at the Curragh, before sweeping past rivals for a storming length and a half success in the mile contest.

Fourth in last year's Sandringham Handicap at the Royal Meeting, Lolly For Dolly is an improved

class=Section2>

performer this season, thanks in large part to the fitting of blinkers.

Stack, assistant trainer to his father, revealed: "She likes a battle and the idea was to take our time through the race because she likes a battle and she likes to pass horses. She is quite idle so that is why she wear blinkers and they help Wayne do his job.

"The blinkers were the key to the operation, really. We thought that when she was fourth in the Sandringham that she didn't really kid herself and so decided to apply the blinkers this year and it has worked the oracle.

"David (Keoghan - owner) loves coming here so it was always in the back of our minds to come here. She is very tough and she takes a lot of work as she has the constitution of an ox.

"She stays well and she likes passing horses. The last time at the Curragh she took up about two (furlongs) down and probably got left in front a little bit too soon.

"We will give her a little holiday now and then there's a Listed race at Tipperary and the Desmond Stakes we can look at before going to the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown."

 

Jockey Wayne Lordan was delighted as Lolly For Dolly also provided him with his first Royal Ascot success.

He said: "Her heart is in the right place and she's tough. Everything happened today as we liked it and I'm just delighted for everybody. She's a great filly. At one stage in the middle of the race, I had to just switch her - she doesn't kill herself, and switching and moving around horses gets her mind going, so it worked today.

"We went a nice gallop and I was just looking for a bit of room at halfway. When I weaved between two horses, she has picked up and she ran to the line quite well. She stays well and it's nice to have a first Royal Ascot winner.

"I was hoping that the rain might come a bit sooner because I was worried the ground might be a little bit quick but she handled it well.

"You are just watching all of the good racing and the good horses and I am just delighted to get the chance to ride a winner here."

 

Lolly For Dolly is the first Irish-trained winner of the Windsor Forest Stakes, which was first staged in 2004. Her owner is the husband of best-selling novelist Cecelia Ahern.

MIXED FORTUNES FOR TRAINERS OF PLACED HORSES

 

Horses trained by Sir Henry Cecil and David Simcock filled the minor places in the Windsor Forest Stakes as Chachamaidee took second and First City ran home for third. However, Cecil's other runner, Jacqueline Quest, refused to leave the stalls and took no part in the race, while the Simcock-trained I'm A Dreamer finished a well-beaten fifth.

 

Cecil said: "She's [Chachamaidee] run a great race. I'm not sure whether the stiff mile quite suited her. She might be better off at seven furlongs, maybe a race like the Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood, but I'm very pleased with her.

 

"The other filly [Jacqueline Quest] just didn't come out of the stalls, I don't know why."

 

Jacqueline Quest's jockey Johnny Murtagh added: "She gave me a lovely ride down to the start, loaded fine and just didn't jump out. I don't know why."

 

David Simcock said: "I'm really disappointed with I'm a Dreamer. William [Buick, jockey] said she has a lack of zip for one reason or another. There's no way she should be beaten by First City. In homework, in my opinion, one filly's considerably better than the other. I've just put it down to a bad day in the office. We'll do some tests and something will probably arise.

 

"I'm A Dreamer didn't disgrace herself but she was flat three [furlongs] out and that just isn't her. She's usually a strong-travelling filly and has real zest."

 

Of his placed filly, the trainer added: "First City has surprised us but she's very game, very athletic and it's very bad training that she hasn't won a Listed race!"

 

 

 

Third race - The Prince Of Wales’s Stakes

Winner’s quotes

 

REWILDING BURSTS SO YOU THINK’S BUBBLE

 

Rewilding provided the surprise result of the meeting so far when overturning Australian superstar and long odds-on favourite So You Think by a neck in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes to give the Godolphin team its fifth win in the race and second-season trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni his first at the Royal Meeting.

 

Frankie Dettori, who won this race in consecutive years on Fantastic Light (2001) and Grandera (2002), said of Rewilding who was a 17/2 chance: “That’s one of the best fights there’s been for a while.

 

“Two great champions fought to the line. That was one of those epic Royal Ascot races that we’ll remember for a while. My fellow doesn’t get the credit he deserves but now we know the key is not to over-race him.

 

“He ticked a lot of boxes today. I’m overwhelmed. I only have three days here (at Ascot) this year and the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes is one of the great races of the season so it’s great to win it again. It doesn’t get better than this.”

 

Al Zarooni said: “We always plan the races with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed and he said that we needed a fast pace so we put Debussy in to make sure it was fast.

 

“It’s a dream to win big races like this, especially in England. I am very happy and  Sheikh Mohammed was the first one to tell me that Rewilding should run when fresh. It has worked in every race.”

 

Simon Crisford, racing manager for Godolphin, said: “Rewilding takes a while to get into his rhythm and that’s why Frankie gets on well with him. He gets him into that rhythm and then he’s got that great finishing touch.

 

“I expect we’ll look at the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (back at Ascot on Saturday, July 23) now and go back to a mile and a half, but we’ll see what Sheikh Mohammed says. He [Rewilding] really needs to have his races well spaced out so hopefully the King George should be just about right and then he could run in the Champion Stakes later in the year (at Ascot on Saturday, October 15).”

 

Sheikh Mohammed, the driving force behind Godolphin, said: “All the races give you pleasure but this is a special one because of the way Rewilding was trained and prepared for this race after winning in Dubai.

 

“He has speed so we thought we would try this shorter distance and he did it - he was the better horse.

 

“There has to be a special way of training this horse and the trainer did very well.

 

“We know this horse much better now - I was always hopeful that he would win because I knew he would stay on as well as have speed.

 

“We will see how Rewilding is tomorrow and then decide where to go next.”

 

 

PRINCE OF WALES’S STAKES - MORE WINNING QUOTES

 

Frankie Dettori, the winning rider on Rewilding, added “I must say that even the second (So You Think) never gave up. It was a tremendous battle with two great horses - it’s sheer joy when you see two great horses battle it out like that. It’s sheer joy to be in the race. Rewilding is a very good horse and he has shown his true colours today.

 

“Godolphin and Ballydoyle are two great teams and we put out life and soul into the job. This is what we are here for, to have these kind of finishes in great races like this one, and I am privileged to be in it. It was a good effort from So You Think as well.

“His Highness Sheikh Mohammed had a chat with me early doors and Ahmed (Ajtebi) did a great job (on Debussy - Godolphin’s pacemaker). You also need the horses to do it and full credit to the whole team.”

 

 

Mahmood Al Zarooni, the winning trainer, added: “I have to be honest it is not me who has trained this horse but Sheikh Mohammed. He always gives us the instructions on how to deal with the horses, their training programmes and how to feed them - everything in the yard. I have a good team working with me so I am very happy.

 

“It was His Highness who decided to go for this race. We are still learning but he has been here more than 30 years in England so he has a lot of experience. We follow what he says and it works.

 

“We will go for the King George now and see what happens there.”

 

 

Simon Crisford, the Godolphin racing manager, added: “It was a fantastic win for Rewilding.

 

“A strong-run 10-furlong race suits him well and a mile and a half is good too.

 

“He needs plenty of time between his races which we learnt from the St Leger last year.                                                                                                     

“Rewilding is probably a horse who has been underestimated. When he won the Voltigeur, he looked like a world-beater and it was a fantastic performance in this year’s Sheema Classic in Dubai which stamped him as a truly top-class horse. And today, he was brilliant.”

SO YOU THINK BEATEN

 

Australian superstar So You Think was turned over at odds of 4/11 when going down by a neck to Rewilding in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.

 

“It was more my fault than anyone else’s that he got beaten and all I can say is sorry. I think I just didn’t have him fit enough,” said So You Think’s trainer Aidan O’Brien. “I probably didn’t get stuck into him enough at home and he had a heavy blow after the race.

 

“I would expect plenty of improvement from him. He got tired and was just caught by Frankie (Dettori) in the last half furlong and was beaten by a horse that gets a mile and a half well.

 

“Because he won his first two races so easily I didn’t want to change things at home. His work has always been incredibly good, he does a demolition job at home and I think that maybe he needed to have done a bit extra because he has such a capacity for work

 

“Obviously the Eclipse is a definite possibility but as always we’ll go home and talk it over with the lads after this week.”

 

Jockey Ryan Moore added: “He was a bit gassy in the first two furlongs and then just didn’t pick up at the end.”

SULTAN'S PRIDE IN SRI PUTRA AS PLANTEUR LEAVES LELLOUCHE PERPLEXED

 

Sultan Ahmad Shah expressed pride in Sri Putra after the Roger Varian-trained five-year-old carried the owner's colours to third place in the Group One Prince Of Wales's Stakes.

 

The 66/1 shot, partnered by Neil Callan, finished six lengths behind the front pair of Rewilding and the vanquished favourite So You Think in the 10-furlong showpiece.

 

The Sultan commented: "I am very proud to have a horse running in a Group One race here at Royal Ascot.

 

"He ran in the Eclipse Stakes last year but I will talk to my trainer about where we will run him next time."

 

A further half a length back in fourth was the French hope, Planteur, winner of the Group One Prix Ganay on his previous start and sent off at 11/2 under Christophe Soumillon.

 

Trainer Elie Lellouche said of the Wildenstein Family's four-year-old: "I am naturally a bit disappointed with that performance and I have no explanation. I have no plans at this moment."

 

 

FRANKIE BANNED FOR NINE DAYS

 

Frankie Dettori has incurred a nine-day ban for using his whip with excessive frequency (Schedule (B) 6) on his mount Rewilding after their neck win the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.

 

The ban is to run from June 29 - July 7 inclusive. This is will rule him out of the Group One Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on July 2.

 

This is on top of the 10-day ban he received for dropping his hands and losing out on third on Blue Bunting in the Investec Oaks.

JULIENAS SCORES FOR SWINBURN

 

Walter Swinburn, who enjoyed many big-race successes at Royal Ascot as a jockey, had his first victory at the meeting as a trainer when Julienas brought off a longstanding plan when winning the Royal Hunt Cup.

 

The four-year-old, who is owned and bred by Swinburn’s father-in-law Peter Harris, was giving his rider Eddie Ahern a second success at Royal Ascot this year although he had to survive a stewards’ enquiry before keeping the race.

 

“It’s always easy to say afterwards but this had been the plan for a long time,” said Swinburn. “We’ve given him time to strengthen up and grow up, both physically and mentally.

 

“We couldn’t train him at two as he was the size he is now and just gave him one run for education at the backend. We’ve gone at his pace and given him time to fill his frame and he’s done nothing but progress. It was nobody’s fault when he got beaten at Sandown last time but I think that has put him spot on.

 

“He only won by half a length but I think we were well on top. He’s battle-hardened now and I think he could progress more. I put him in the John Smith’s Cup at York but this had really been the plan. We came here in the knowledge that he’d get a mile and a quarter, which you need to do in these sort of races.

 

“I thought I knew a lot about thoroughbreds as a rider but it’s nothing compared to when you are on the ground with them at home. Sheikh Mohammed pointed out when I first took out a training licence that top jockeys don’t make top trainers. I hope to prove him wrong. When you’re riding you think you know everything about thoroughbreds but you realise you know very little when you start training.

 

“I had some great wins here as a jockey, including Indian Queen in the Gold Cup and  Zilzal in the Jersey Stakes, but when you ride a winner you go in and get changed for the next race. This is much more satisfying, it’s the result of months of hard work from all the staff at home.”

 

Ahern added: “Ryan (Moore on the runner-up) did have to do a bit of a check and come round me but, when he came to me, my horse went on a little bit more. As the result of the enquiry shows, the best horse won and I kept the race but got suspended for two days.

 

“Even though they were going pretty quick, they were going a normal gallop for me. I was sitting in behind the leaders travelling very well and he is such a big horse, I can see why Walter has taken his time with him.

 

“He covers his ground so easily and he travelled so well. A nice gap on the rail came at the two-furlong pole and, when I asked him to pick up, he did. I felt him idle a little but then Ryan came to me and off he went again.”

 

Eddie Ahern received a ban for careless riding on the winner Julienas in the Royal Hunt Cup after causing interference to runner-up Dance And Dance.

 

The suspension runs from June 29 - June 30 inclusive. Ahern received a further ban of two days (July 1 and July 3) for excessive use of the whip on the same mount.

Runner-up quotes

 

HAMPERED RUN PUTS PAID TO DANCE’S CHANCE

 

Trainer Ed Vaughan was ruing his bad luck in the Royal Hunt Cup when 7/1 favourite Dance And Dance found trouble in running in the closing stages of the race. After appearing to be hampered by the winner, Julienas, the five-year-old  ran on to finish just half a length behind him in second.

 

“He just got checked at the vital time when he was winding up to make his final run,” said Vaughan. “ Ryan [Moore, jockey] said it definitely did cost us the race but we’ll see what the stewards have to say before we go any further.

 

“He’s battled back after he got checked and it was a wonderful run but I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

 

The stewards held an enquiry into the incident but the placings remained unaltered.

PENDRAGON DELIGHTS OWNERS WHILE INVISIBLE MAN RETUNS TO FORM

 

Pendragon made the leap from Scottish bumpers to Royal Ascot via sellers and claimers to take fourth place in the Royal Hunt Cup.

 

The Brian Ellison-trained gelding, a 33/1 outsider for the mile handicap, thrilled his owners Dan Gilbert and Kristian Strangeway in coming home a little over two and a half lengths behind the victorious Julienas.

 

Strangeway, the trainer's stepson, commented: "We are over the moon with that - we think the draw beat us as much as anything. He hasn't done bad for a horse that cost us 10 grand out of a claimer.

 

"He's an eight-year-old but he has very few miles on the clock. He started out as a four-year-old running in bumpers for Lucy Normile and she picked him up for only 7,000 euros, so we think he might have had a bit of a problem when he was younger.

 

"Hopefully we can come back here with him next year. This is my first time with runners at Royal Ascot. My first runner finished seventh yesterday and to have this horse finish fourth is a thrill - it's a dream to be here. Both of us are ambitious owners so hopefully we can go on and keep coming back here."

Gilbert added: "We couldn't see where he was for most of the race but Jimmy said he was buried in the middle of them. If the handicapper sticks him up for that we will be disappointed. We hoped he would run well but we didn't even know if he would get in."

 

As to the future for Pendragon, the duo has an eye on the totesport Mile at Glorious Goodwood.

 

Strangeway said: "If he can get in the mile race at Goodwood we will go for it. We were planning to enter him in the John Smith's Cup at York but Brian forgot to put him in."

 

Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor was pleased with the effort of Invisible Man in taking third, having won the race last year off a 10lb lower handicap mark.

 

He said: "He won the race last year and he travelled well through the race this time - third is a good run from him.

 

"I am happy the horse is back now because I was disappointed with him in Dubai."

 

 

 

Fifth Race Quotes

Queen Mary Stakes

 

HANNON MAKES IT FIVE WITH BEST TERMS

 

Best Terms gave trainer Richard Hannon a fifth Queen Mary Stakes with a tenacious short-head victory under Richard Hughes.

 

The 12/1 winner brought up a 155/1 double on the day for Hannon and Hughes who had earlier teamed up for an 11/1 triumph with Strong Suit in the Jersey Stakes.

 

Best Terms showed plenty of speed in the five-furlong contest and then battled hard in the final strides to repel runner-up Shumoos and the fast-finishing Caledonian Lady.

 

The Exceed And Excel filly, carrying the colours of her owner/breeder Robert Barnett, made famous thanks to the exploits of 1982 Oaks heroine Time Charter, joined Fly Baby (1981), Lyric Fantasy (1992), Risky (1993) and Gilded (2006) as Hannon-trained winners of the Group Two race.

 

The trainer said: "She wasn't born until the 19th of May but she is vey quick. I thought the horse this side (Caledonian Lady) was going to catch her but she stuck her head out and she's still unbeaten."

 

Richard Hannon jnr., assistant trainer to his father, said: "She ran well last time but she had a lot more on her plate today - I thought she had a bit too much on her plate.

 

"We will give her a break now and might go to York for the Lowther Stakes in August and then the Cheveley Park Stakes, or something like that.

 

"This is the meeting that really matters and it's always great to have winners here."

 

Hughes, riding his second Queen Mary Stakes winner after Gilded, said: "We always liked her. She's so small but she keeps pulling it out. They say good things come in little packages."

 

Will Edmeades, racing manager to the owner, added: "We chucked the mare (Sharp Terms) in a field two years ago because she was not coming up with the goods but she is back in foal now to Exceed And Excel."

MEEHAN SETS SIGHTS ON NEXT BIG TARGET FOR SHUMOOS

 

 

A three-way finish in the Queen Mary Stakes saw Best Terms hold off the Brian Meehan-trained Shumoos and Caledonia Lady, trained by Pat Murphy, by a short-head and a head.

 

Meehan was in no doubt of the runner-up’s next target, saying: “I think she wants six [furlongs] so we’ll go and win the Cherry Hinton instead!”

 

Murphy, perhaps better known as a jumps trainer but clearly equally adept with young Flat horses, was delighted with the performance of Caledonia Lady, who was sent off at 100/1.

 

He said: “We knew she was useful. We’ve had a couple of two-year-olds who have won and she’s better than them. She got a little tired in her last run at Leicester.

 

“She might have been a 100/1 shot but she wasn’t coming as a no-hoper from the yard. We knew she’s run a very respectable race. I must admit that I felt that there were three fillies in the race that I thought were out of the top drawer so I was hoping she’d run into the first half-dozen. To run that well is fantastic.”

SANDRINGHAM HANDICAP (LISTED)

 

DASCOMBE HITS WINNING RHYTHM

 

Trainer Tom Dascombe and jockey Richard Kingscote enjoyed their first Royal Ascot victories when Rhythm Of Light landed the concluding Sandringham Handicap in good style.

 

Dascombe moved to Cheshire to a stable owned by footballer Michael Owen and Betfair founder Andrew Black last year and, after a not always straightforward 2010 season, is delighted that the yard is now in flying form.

 

“It’s been well documented that you need time to settle into a new place and this filly is a classic example of what happened to us,” said Dascombe. “She’s always been good but I told her owners not to back her first time out and she won at 20/1 but then she ran terribly on her other two runs last year. But she’s done nothing but improve this year.”

 

Kingscote added: “She’s got great cruising speed and the step up to a mile was a plus with her again. It was unfortunate she got beaten at Haydock but the run may have done her good.”

 

Michael Owen did not have a share in the winner but was delighted with the result and is looking forward to seeing Brown Panther run in the King George V Handicap tomorrow.

 

“It was almost more pleasing for me that somebody else owned the first Royal Ascot winner from the yard,” said Owen. “But hopefully tomorrow will be my day. He’s my favourite horse because I bred him and raced his mother Treble Heights, she’s the apple of my eye. He was in the Derby originally and is still in the German Derby.”

CUMANI PLEASED WITH RUNNER-UP DUBAI QUEEN

 

Dubai Queen, who started 9/2 joint-favourite for the Sandringham Handicap with the Queen’s Humdrum, ran a very promising race in second, finishing a length and a quarter behind the winner, Rhythm Of Light.

 

Her trainer, Luca Cumani, said: “I’m extremely pleased with the way she ran. She travelled really well through the race. Two [furlongs] out Kieren [Fallon] was sitting still and I was thinking we were in with a good chance.

 

“She never stopped running - she just found one too strong in the final furlong but she was pulling away from the third and I’m very happy with that.”

 

Clive Cox, trainer of third-placed Winter’s Night, said: “That was a really good run. I’m not sure where we’ll go next.”

Winning trainer:-Name: Stack, Thomas Brendan Date of Birth: 15/11/45, Moyvane, Co Kerry Trains at Thomastown Castle, Golden, County Tipperary Background: Comes form a farming family who were not particularly involved in racing. Developed a keen interest in riding and hunting through his friendship with school friend Barry Brogan, whose father trained at Rathfeigh. After a chance meeting with veteran handler Bobby Renton, who was looking for potential jumpers in Ireland, Tommy followed the trainer back to his Ripon yard in 1965 soon establishing himself as a very able jockey, turning professional in 1967 and twice becoming champion jockey in 1974/5 and 1976/7. His finest hour in the saddle came in the 1977 Grand National, when he rode Red Rum to an historic third victory. A terrible accident in the parade ring at Hexham in late 1977 resulted in a smashed pelvis and precipitated his premature retirement from riding the following year. After a spell with the Coolmore operation, took out a professional licence to train in 1988, having been successful as a permit holder with smart sprinter Northern Express for the previous two seasons. First major success came when Kostroma, owned by his former Coolmore partner Robert Sangster, won the Beverly D Stakes at Arlington in September 1992. Teamed up with Sangster once again two years later to win the English 1,000 Guineas with Las Meninas and recorded a second Classic success four years later in the Irish equivalent with Tarascon, who had previously been successful in the Moyglare Stud Stakes as a two-year-old. Ended the year in hospital with menigitis and pneumonia, which resulted in him spending 13 days in a coma and three months in hospital. The infection also cost him much of his hearing and his sense of balance. Recent seasons have seen Tommy enjoy a resurgence as a trainer, with his son Fozzy becoming his assistant. British Classic wins: (1) Las Meninas (1994 Sagitta 1000 Guineas) Major wins include: Irish 1000 Guineas (1998 Tarascon), Moyglare Stud Stakes (1997 Tarascon), Cartier Million (1988 Corwyn Bay); EBF Waterford Testimonial Stakes (1989 Corwyn Bay); Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial (1991 Runyon); King George Stakes (1991 Title Roll); Irish Champion Hurdle (1989 Kingsmill) Darley Prix Morny (2007 Myboycharlie) Royal Ascot Wins (1): Windsor Forest Stakes (2011 Lolly For Dolly) Wins in Britain in Britain: 1
