NEWMARKET JULY MEETING 2003
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
THIRD DAY, THURSDAY, JULY 10


WINNING QUOTES RACE THREE
DARLEY JULY CUP

“A REALLY GREAT WIN”

“That was good, a really great win,” enthused John Gosden after Oasis Dream had reversed Royal Ascot form with the Australian ace Choisir to win the Darley July Cup in a time very close to the track record.


“He has a lot of speed, so much so that even when he missed the break by a length he was able to get back in terms within about 50 yards, and having been drawn where he was (stall 11) with Choisir in one, we had to ride an aggressive race on him.


“When I walked all six furlongs of the track this morning, the ground by the far rails where Choisir was drawn, was very much on the firm side of good to firm. Where we were was on the good side of good to firm and I knew it was vital that we did not leave ourselves with too much ground to make up on Choisir.


“Because he has so much speed we were able to find ourselves with only two lengths to make up, and I was very happy when I saw that for four furlongs of the race Richard (Hughes) was allowing his reins to hang loose, with no contact with the horse’s mouth. I knew from that that there was plenty left. When we got to Choisir he fought on as I knew he would, but in the end we were able to wear him down and we were going away at the end.


“He was last year’s champion two-year-old after he won the (Shadwell Stud) Middle Park and now he is the star sprinter after having won the Darley July Cup.


“But if it had not been for the patience of Prince Khalid (the winner’s owner breeder Prince Khalid Abdullah) he might well not be here now. We did at one time think that he might be a Guineas horse -- there is certainly stamina for a mile on his dam’s side -- but I had a terrible time with him in the spring.


“He just did not come and Iost a few more hairs in the process. We could have forced him and gone for a Guineas trial, but if he had done that we would not be here now. As a result he was no more than 80% when he ran at Ascot and from the way things have turned out it was a blessing in disguise that he could not run in the Guineas.


“I have no doubt that he can get further in time, but at the moment the logical step seems to be to follow the sprinting route - the Nunthorpe, the Sprint Cup and the Abbaye. He is in the Sussex Stakes but that is not a realistic possibility at this stage.”



RICHARD HUGHES - THE WINNING JOCKEY - DARLEY JULY CUP


Richard Hughes, who partnered Oasis Dream to victory in the Group One Darley July Cup, said: “I actually missed the kick strangely enough - he was standing so quiet that I just left him be - he was definitely a length down compared with the ones beside him but within 50 yards I was in front of them, tanking along.

“Johnny (Murtagh on Choisir) was going well on the fence and I was going equally as well. I was hoping that Johnny would lead me to the furlong pole. And then I outstayed him.


“When I went to Johnny, Johnny went again and the two of us are level pegging for a good 50 to 100 yards. Then my lad pulled away.


“We had done our best to try and get Oasis Dream ready for Ascot - he had a few problems - but he was here for the big day - that’s the main thing.”


PERRY REFLECTS ON SUMMER ADVENTURE

DARLEY JULY CUP
PLACED QUOTES - PERRY/CANDY

Paul Perry, trainer of the second Choisir, said: “I think Johnny Murtagh summed it up right - the winner was the fresh horse trained for the race. This horse you may say is on the way down a bit. We’ve come over and done our job and it’s been a great effort from a horse who has done a fair bit and wasn’t trained with the race in mind. He ran well.


“This race was a bit of an afterthougt. I suppose you’d take into consideration he’s had the long trip and had a good bit of racing earlier on before he came over here. It was never the plan to run, so you’d have to be very happy with him. He ran very courageously. He will not run in the Nunthorpe.”

Asked about the summer adventure of his charge, Perry replied: “It has been tremendous.”

He also confirmed that the horse had not yet been sold.

Henry Candy, trainer of third-placed Airwave, said: “We will bring her back in trip and go for the Nunthorpe. There’s not much else for her.”


MURTAGH’S CHOISIR VERDICT

MORE DARLEY JULY CUP
PLACE QUOTES


Johnny Murtagh, jockey of second-placed Choisir in the Darley July Cup, said: “He ran very well. The winner was just too good on the day - just found an extra length-and-a-half in the last 100 yards. He (Oasis Dream) probably came on a lot for his Ascot run and the extra furlong helped him today.”


RECORD JULY MEETING ATTENDANCE

Today’s crowd came to 11,813, up 1,716 (+17%) on last year’s 10,097 and there was a record three-day attendance of 30,711, up nearly 14% on the 2002 total of 27,028.


Lisa Hancock, Newmarket’s Managing Director, said: “We have had the biggest July Meeting crowds on record, with a great atmosphere, wonderful weather and fantastic racing.

“The unique July Course ambience makes this meeting really special and we have seen a lot of very happy racegoers over the three days.


“Two years ago, the July Meeting race programme lacked strength in depth and the quality was questionable. Since then we have increased prize money by over 50% to a total of £1 million this year and significantly improved the race programme, the impact of which has exceeded our expectations.

“I have been particularly pleased to see a lot of top-class horses from Royal Ascot like Choisir, Oasis Dream, Airwave, Attraction and Macadamia come on and run brilliantly here. Throughout the three days, all the races have been highly competitive.


“I believe we can really take the July Meeting forward from here, develop the race programme still further and atttract bigger and bigger crowds over the coming years.

“This has been the forgotten summer Festival in the British racing calendar but now we are starting to put it well and truly back on the map.”


Newmarket’s innovative offer of half-price admission today for Australian passport-holders saw 58 come through the turnstiles to watch their star Choisir in the Darley July Cup.

WHEREVER CHOISIR GOES...


Choisir may not quite attract the sort of furore generated by David Beckham but the Aussie sprinter definitely has pulling power.


This afternoon on the July Course the media ranks will be significantly boosted by both broadcast and print journalists from Australia.


Among the throng will be crews from Channel 7 and Channel 9 and the race will be broadcast live ‘Down Under’ where they are nine hours ahead of Britain.


Attheraces have also sold the rights to the Australian TAB.


Several news publications will be also be represented as two-time Royal Ascot hero Choisir aims to close the gap in the fame stakes on Australia’s most renowned racehorse Phar Lap.



QUALITY THE WATCHWORD AS MEETING BUILDS TO CRESCENDO

The first two days of the July Meeting have been full of top-class action with the performance of Attraction on the opening day many people’s highlight.


The Efisio filly was showered in plaudits after she destroyed the field in the Group 2 Chippenham Lodge Stud Cherry Hinton Stakes.


Trainer Mark Johnston said: “She’s certainly the best two-year-old I’ve ever trained.”

In the day’s other Group 2, the Princess Of Wales’s UAE Equestrian And Racing Federation Stakes, Millenary confirmed what a gutsy - not to mention talented - horse he is by winning the event for the second conscutive season.


Trainer John Dunlop said: “He seems to enjoy being at Newmarket as he won the Jockey Club Stakes on the other course two years ago, so that’s now three Group races he’s won here.”

Yesterday saw the two-year-old colts to the fore in the Group 2 TNT July Stakes.


Nevisian Lad underlined the fact that he is a horse with plenty of speed as he surged late on to pip Cape Fear and Byron in a thriller.


Trainer Michael Bell said: “I have always felt that he was a decent colt and now he has proved it.”

Macadamia continues to improve and followed up her Royal Hunt Cup win with Group glory for the first time in the Stan James Falmouth Stakes.

Newmarket handler James Fanshawe beamed: “I am really delighted for her.”


AUSSIE CONFIDENCE BEHIND CHOISIR

Choisir will add to his Royal Ascot heroics by winning the Darley July Cup - that’s the message from Melbourne Age journalist Peter Ellis.


He said: “All he has to do is run up to his Ascot performances. If he does that, he will win again. He’s drawn right in gate number one and from there he should get an easy lead.”

Ellis also reported that the race is set to grip sports fans all across Australia.


He said: “It’s getting unprecedented coverage. As far as racing goes, it’s certainly the biggest story in the modern era. The race is going to be live throughout Australia on tv.”

Ellis has been in England throughout the Danehill Dancer colt’s rise to fame here. But he has heard that the horse created a massive stir back home after adding the Golden Jubilee Stakes victory to his Kings Stand success

He said: “I was really surprised at the reaction - it was incredible. It was leading the 6.30 standard news.”

London-based photographer Julian Andrews from Australian company John Fairfax Publications tells a similar story.


He said: “From what I hear, it’s been massive back in Australia, especially in the horse’s home town of Newcastle.


“When it won for the first time at Royal Ascot it was big in Newcastle but when it then won the Golden Jubilee Stakes it was just huge all over Australia. It was a massive story in the following day’s papers.”

Andrews faces a busy afternoon sending pictures to three papers in Australia.


“Two papers are holding their last edition in the hope that he wins again.”

WINNING QUOTES RACE ONE
KIRTLING HANDICAP

“NO TRAVELLING PERSUADED ME”

It is unusual for Sir Michael Stoute to run a horse twice within a week but he did so with South Atlantic in the Kirtling Handicap and it paid off when the colt just got the better of favourite Inverness, who is trained by Sir Michael’s former assistant James Fanshawe.


“I do run them so quickly sometimes,” said the trainer after South Atlantic’s determined success. “He never had a run at Sandown the other day when he got knocked about a bit, but he was fine and ate up well when he came home. He really didn’t have a race at Sandown and it was the fact that there would be no travelling involved which persuaded me to run him here.


“I think he is equally effective over seven furlongs (the distance of the Sandown race) as he is over a mile, and he gets the mile well as you saw there.”

South Atlantic is owned in partnership by Miss Kirsten Rausing and the Niarchos family, who also bred him, with the Niarchos element going under the name of Norburn Securities; most often their breeding ventures come under the name of Flaxman Holdings.


“I am pretty sure that his dam, Shimmering Sea, is the only horse by Slip Anchor ever to have won over five furlongs,” said Miss Rausing.


“She has bred seven winners and this colt is a half brother to a couple of good horses in Sheltering Sky and Sea Dane. She is also a half sister to the King George V1 winner Petoski, so there is plenty of stamina on the dam’s side.”



URBINA, FANSHAWE, MCMAHON REACTION

KIRTLING HANDICAP STAKES
PLACED QUOTES



Oscar Urbina was pleased with the performance of his mount Inverness - despite the favourite finishing second.


He said: “It was a very good effort. He’s only a three-year-old and still learning. Hopefully, there will be more improvement in him. The ground was fine for him - he’s won twice over good to firm.

“We would maybe like a little bit more cut in the ground but you couldn’t make any excuse - he ran a great race.”

Inverness’s trainer James Fanshawe added: ”He ran very well and I’m very pleased with him.

“I don’t know when he’ll be racing again - we’ll see how he comes out of this. I’d like some rain for him, really. I think he’d go on softer ground.”

El Coto sprang something of a minor surprise, finishing third at odds of 50-1.


His handler Bryan McMahon said: “He’s run up to his form. We think he’d like juicier ground; preferably good or softer.”



HANNON GLEE AT SUPERLATIVE SUCCESS

WEATHERBYS SUPERLATIVE STAKES
WIN QUOTES

Trainer Richard Hannon’s late decision to aim his horse at the Group 3 Weatherbys Superlative Stakes instead of yesterday’s TNT July Stakes paid off with his charge triumphing by a head from Chester Le Street.


Hannon said: “I’m glad he came here instead of the other race - seven furlongs is better for him than six.

“He needs seven furlongs and travelled very well today. There was just a little bit of time in him getting there. And when he did, he came up the hill well.

“I’m pleased that I’ve gone for the seven furlongs rather than the six. But he would had have run a good race in the other race, as well. He’s that type of horse - he’s loads of speed.”

Hannon also confirmed the high standing of the Fasliyev colt in the two-year-old pecking order at East Everleigh Stables.


He said: “He’s as good as anything we’ve got, a pretty good horse. And he will be better when he gets better ground.


“He will have time off now as that’s four races for him. We might just have a look at the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Stakes at Goodwood at the end of the month. But he’s had a hard race today on a hot day and will probably need a little bit of time to recover.”



PLACED QUOTES RACE TWO
WEATHERBYS SUPERLATIVE STAKES

CHESTER LE STREET JUST CAUGHT

Chester Le Street made a valiant attempt to make all the running in the Weatherbys Superlative Stakes, but was worn down near the line by Kings Point and beaten a head.


“I hate being beaten, but you really cannot complain about what he did there. He really tried his heart out,” said the colt’s trainer Mark Johnston.


“He is a big, tall horse and I am sure that we have yet to see the best of him. We made a grave mistake running him at Ripon first time out where the track was far too sharp for a tall colt like he is.


“I think he will have a break now and, having talked about him with John Ferguson (representing the colt’s owner Sheikh Mohammed), I feel he could come back for the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.


“His sire Horse Chestnut was a top horse in South Africa and he has had a winner or two in the United States. He has had very few runners in this country, as far as I know.”


STEWARDS’ CUP LIKELY FOR PATAVELLIAN
LADBROKES BUNBURY CUP
WIN QUOTES

Patavellian looks likely to revert to six furlongs after just clinging on for a short head success in the Ladbrokes Bunbury Cup.


Successful trainer Roger Charlton indicated the five-year-old, who finished fifth in the Wokingham last month, is a likely runner in August 2's Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, for which he initially earned a 9-1 quote with Paddy Power..


Today, the gelding’s jockey Steve Drowne, who was riding his 60th winner of the season, had to pull out all the stops to hold the late charge of Mine after his mount had raced keenly to lead from the gates.


Charlton said: “Running in the Wokingham set him alight. He was going too fast, was always travelling too well and it was a question of whether he was going to last home. But anyway he won, that’s the important thing.


“On that, he’s a six furlong horse, not a seven furlong horse, which is what I always thought before the Wokingham (for which Patavellian was 4-1 favourite).


“But he never got into it in the Wokingham. It was very firm at Ascot for probably most of the horses that ran there. I hope the punters got their money back (today).


“I would think he would more likely go to the Stewards’ Cup than Move It (Charlton’s winner of the Tote Exacta Rated Stakes over six furlongs on Tuesday). But we will see.”

The winner was Charlton’s 29th of the season and third of the meeting.


“We normally get to 25 winners in the middle of September, so we are ahead of schedule. It’s been a great year - good all the way through.”


PLACED QUOTES RACE FOUR
LADBROKES BUNBURY CUP

“YOU CAN’T GRUMBLE”

“He might well have won in another stride but you can’t grumble at that,” said James Bethell after Mine had been beaten a short head by all the way winner Patavellian in the Ladbrokes Bunbury Cup as he attempted to repeat his success of last year.


“We won it then, but there won’t be a weightcloth problem to help us this time ,” said the trainer as he looked back to 12 months ago when Mine dead-heated with Capricho only for the latter to be disqualified as he had run without his weightcloth and his jockey weighed in 9lb light.


“I think that this ground was plenty firm enough for him as he has now had two races on pretty fast ground,” Bethell added.


“He is in the William Hill Mile at Goodwood and the Tote International Handicap at Ascot in which he has 7st 13lb, so I would like to find a jockey who could ride him at that weight.


“I think his ideal is a stiff seven furlongs with a bit of cut in the ground.”

HIGHLAND-HELMWALL MAIDEN STAKES
WIN QUOTES

DROWNE TOP AS BYRNE REMEMBERED

Steve Drowne capped an excellent meeting with victory on the Mick Channon-trained Jimmy Byrne to ensure he finished as top jockey over the three days.


Drowne presented the gelding well inside the final furlong to score by a length - and hand the rider his fifth success of the meeting.


Drowne purred: “The week has been brilliant. To come to a meeting like this and have five winners is fantastic. If I have a treble at Folkestone I’m delighted but to come here and do this is super.”

He added: “The race wasn’t the best run round Newmarket but he was always travelling like the winner and won nicely.

“The boss has always liked him. He’s not a star but he’s an honest little horse and has got his fair share of ability. He’ll definitely improve and go on from this.”

The win was sentimental as the horse was named after the well-known racing figure Jimmy Byrne.


Part-owner Chris Murray explained: “Jimmy was a famous character; he worked for the Eddie Brennan Shipping Company.

“He was always around the sales. He died earlier in the year and we named the horse after him. He bought the horse as a yearling.”



WINNING QUOTES RACE SEVEN
DULLINGHAM HANDICAP

DOUBLE FOR STOUTE

Sir Michael Stoute completed a 70.5-1 first and last race double when Golden Lariat added to the stable’s first race gains with South Atlantic by holding Reveillez and Factor Fifteen in the closing mile and a half handicap.


The colt had been very disappointing when he ran at York last time but Bruce Raymond, racing manager to owner Sheikh Maktoum al Maktoum, explained the extenuating circumstances.


“He got very upset walking across from the stables to the course that day, and Sally (Eddery) said that he was very on his toes in the stalls, which is most unlike him,” said Raymond.


An ironic touch to the race was that Golden Lariat was ridden by Jamie Spencer after Kieren Fallon, who rides the majority of Sir Michael’s horses, had got off the winner to ride Factor Fifteen.


Fallon later told connections of the grey that Factor Fifteen was not suited by the course and that he prefers a course with more turns in it. The idea is to run the horse in one of the big handicaps at Goodwood, as long as he gets into one of them off his current mark of 79.



THE DULLINGHAM HANDICAP
PLACE QUOTES

REVEILLEZ MAY TAKE IN EBOR


Reveillez, runner-up to Golden Lariat in the final race of the meeting, could be on course for the Tote Ebor at York on August 20.


Jacko Fanshawe, wife of trainer James, confirmed: “He’s being entered for the Ebor. I think a mile-and-six will suit him.”

Reveillez’s jockey Oscar Urbina said: “We got beaten by a better horse. You can see that horse (Golden Lariat) winning again. He will improve more than mine. Mine is quite exposed already but still ran a good race under top weight.”




JOHNNY MURTAGH MISSES PLANE AND FIRST RACE


Johnny Murtagh, the rider of Australian sensation Choisir in the feature Darley July Cup at 2.50pm, missed his intended plane and has not yet arrived at Newmarket.



In consequence, Mick Kinane took over from him on Star Sensation in the opening race, the Kirtling Handicap.



MURTAGH ARRIVES


Johnny Murtagh arrived at Newmarket at 2pm after an interrupted journey.


He will partner Choisir in the Group One Darley July Cup, the feature race of the July Meeting.


There was a shoeing scare relating to Choisir reported on Channel 4 Racing who later said the horse was plated and calm.


FIRST TWO WINNING JOCKEYS


Kieren Fallon said of the first race winner South Atlantic: “He is nice horse. I switched off behind Frankie (on Chinkara) and gave myself two options. I was lucky - it goes like that.


“If I get the splits and luck in running on Airwave I think I can win. We know the favourite (Choisir) is going to get a clear run and we will see who is best.”


Richard Hughes, who partnered Kings Point to win the Weatherbys Superlative Stakes, said: “He’s a very brave little horse. The only concern was that it was a little bit fast.


“Cantering to the post, I wasn’t happy at all but he is a tough little fellow and overcame it. You can’t get Oasis Dream any better than he is today.”




BETTING NEWS

The big betting race of the day is the Ladbrokes Bunbury Cup(3.25) and inevitably there has been support for a wide range of runners. Possibly the most popular horse has been Patavellian, who has been backed from 7-1 to 6-1 with Paddy Power, from 8-1 to 11-2 with Bet 365, from 8-1 from 13-2 with Coral, from 8-1 to 11-2 with Victor Chandler and from 7-1 to 6-1 with Ladbrokes.


Others in demand have been Camp Commander from 10-1 to 15-2 with Hills and from the same price to 8-1 with Chandlers. Hills also report interest in Adekshan (14-1 from 22-1) and Farqad (33-1 to 22-1).

In the opening Kirtling Handicap (1.45) there has been good money for South Atlantic, who is now at 5-1 from 6-1 with Powers, at 9-2 from 11-2 with Bet365 and at 9-2 from 6-1 with Stan James. Blonde Streak has been popular with Chandlers where she is at 12-1 from 16-1.


Chester Le Street, one of three runners in the race for Sheikh Mohammed, is in demand in the Weatherbys Superlative Stakes (2.15) and he has come in to 11-4 from 7-2 with Bet365, to the same price from 100-30 with Powers, from 4-1 to 7-2 with Ladbrokes, and from 7-2 to 3-1 with Stan James and Cashmans.


Plenty of punters are prepared to see Oasis Dream reverse Royal Ascot form with Australian ace Choisir in the Darley July Cup (2.50), and the colt has come in from 4-1 to 7-2 with Cashmans.


Others in demand in the big sprint are Orientor, whose odds with Hills have been halved from 50-1 to 25-1 and with Chandlers cut from 50-1 to 33-1, and Twilight Blues, cut from 40-1 to 25-1 by Stanley and Skybet, and from 33-1 to 25-1 by Chandlers. The latter also report money for Membership from 25-1 to 20-1.


In the closing Dullingham Handicap (5.05) Bet365 report interest in Reveillez, who has advanced from 7-2 to 11-4.



GOING NEWS AT 10 AM

The going for the final day of the July meeting remains

GOOD TO FIRM,

as it was for the second day yesterday.


“We had no rain overnight and with the breeze, the first we have had for about a week, and the sun the course is steadily drying out.


“I walked the course this morning and an hour ago it was genuinely good to firm ground. It will continue to dry out through the day, but I think there is enough moisture in the ground, which has a very good covering of grass, for it to stay good to firm for all the afternoon.


“The Darley July Cup is a brilliant race and it is very exciting to have a field of such quality for it, especially with Choisir trying to complete what would be a superb hat trick.


“It is marvellous to have the form of the Golden Jubilee Stakes and the King’s Stand from Ascot clashing, and we also have the winners of the two big two-year-old races of last autumn, Oasis Dream (Shadwell Stud Middle Park Stakes) and Airwave (Skybet Cheveley Park Stakes) in the opposition. The one thing they have in common is that they have both been beaten by Choisir.”


NON RUNNERS

So far today there are two non runners, both in the Darley July Cup (2.50).


No. 3 Captain Rio has been withdrawn because of unsuitable ground

No.14 Salt Lake City has been withdrawn with a vet’s certificate.

TODAY'S JOCKEY CLUB APPEALS




Richard Hughes

The Disciplinary Panel of the Jockey Club, on 10th July 2003, considered an appeal lodged by Richard Hughes, the rider of CHINSOLA (IRE), placed first in the Whips and Tees Maiden Auction Stakes, against the decision of the Stewards at Lingfield to find him guilty of careless riding and to suspend him from riding for two days, following an enquiry on 2 July 2003.

The Panel heard evidence from Hughes and Patrick Mathers, the rider of PRINCESS KAI (IRE), placed fourth. It also viewed video recordings of the race.


The Panel found that CHINSOLA (IRE) had interfered with PRINCESS KAI (IRE) approaching the final bend and that it was caused by careless riding on the part of Hughes in that he allowed his horse to drift in on the bend without attempting to straighten it up.

It upheld his appeal and cautioned Hughes as to his future conduct in races.


Paul Hanagan

The Disciplinary Panel of the Jockey Club, on 10th July 2003, held an enquiry to establish whether or not Paul Hanagan, the rider of BLYTHE SPIRIT had committed a breach of Jockey Club Instruction H17 headed 'Jockeys Riding to their Draw' concerning his riding in The 'Pablo' Rated Stakes at Doncaster on 29 June. This matter was referred to the Stewards of the Jockey Club by the Doncaster Stewards following their enquiry of the same day because this was his fifth offence within the previous twelve months.

The Panel considered evidence from Hanagan. It also viewed video recordings of the race and videos of Hanagan's previous breaches of Instruction H17.


It accepted an admission from Hanagan that he was guilty of Improper riding and in breach of Jockey Club Instruction H17 headed 'Jockeys Riding to their Draw' in that he failed to keep straight to the marker poles.


As this was his fifth offence within the previous twelve months, they
suspended him from riding for 8 days from Friday 18th July to Saturday 26th
July on days on which flat racing is scheduled to take place.




HUGE INCREASE IN ENTRIES FOR WILLIAM HILL MILE




Tout Seul Entered In £100,000 Event

The £100,000 William Hill Mile, run on Friday, August 1, and one of the highlights of Glorious Goodwood, has a hugely-increased entry with 91 high-class performers entered compared to 62 last year.


The weights are headed on 9st 10lb by Smirk, who landed last year's race off 9st 5lb, while another interesting entry at the top of the handicap is last season's Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes hero Tout Seul (9st 9lb), who finished fourth to Refuse To Bend in this season's Sagitta 2000 Guineas then filled third place behind Indian Haven in the Irish equivalent,

Mark Johnston, who has won the race twice before, has the strongest entry numericallly of any trainer with seven horses engaged, namely Albuhera (8st 13lb), Takes Tutu (8st 1lb), Nuit Sombre (8st), a winner at Sandown on Friday, Jebal Suraaj (7st 13lb), Masterpoint (7st 5b), Fisio Therapy (7st 4lb) and Penny Cross (7st 3lb).


Other trainers well represented include David Nicholls and Ed Dunlop, with five entries apiece, James Fanshawe, David Loder and Amanda Perrett, who each have four horses entered while those with three engaged are Sir Michael Stoute, Alec Stewart, David Elsworth and Mick Channon.


Royal Hunt Cup winner Macadamia (9st 3lb) and New Seeker (8st 2lb), the Britannia Stakes hero, both boast winning form at Royal Ascot while among the many other entries in top form are Putra Pekan (9st 6lb) and Funfair (9st 5lb), who finished first and second in Saturday's Tote Scoop6 Handicap at Sandown, and the highly-progressive Tarjman (9st 2lb).


There is a forfeit stage for the William Hill Mile next week on Tuesday, July 15.


Rod Fabricius, Managing Director at Goodwood Racecourse, commented: "Since being introduced to Glorious Goodwood in 1987, the William Hill Mile has rapidly established itself as one of the most sought-after prizes of the summer. We are delighted to see such an increased entry for what promises to be a hugely competitive renewal this year."

42 REMAIN IN STUNNING SUSSEX STAKES

The £285,000 Sussex Stakes looks all set to be one of the highlights of the entire season with 42 horses still engaged after the July 8 forfeit stage. The Group One contest is run over a mile at Goodwood on Wednesday, July 30.


Refuse To Bend, the Sagitta 2000 Guineas hero, and Russian Rhythm, the Sagitta 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes heroine figure prominently from the classic generation along with Irish 2000 Guineas winner Indian Haven, St James's Palace Stakes winner Zafeen and the highly promising Trade Fair, winner of both his starts in sensational style this year. Also engaged is Sir Michael Stoute's Kalaman, arguably unlucky when second in the St James's Palace Stakes and Ikhtyar, a very impressive winner of the Listed Gala Stakes at Sandown Park on Friday.


Heading the acceptors amongst the older horses is Godolphin's Dubai Destination. The Kingmambo colt, who defeated Rock Of Gibraltar as a juvenile, was the highly impressive winner of the Group One Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot last time, with Tillerman in second and Right Approach third and last season's Group One Queen Elizabeth II Stakes victor Where Or When fourth.


In total, there are 12 Irish-trained entries still engaged, 11 of whom are trained by Aidan O'Brien with one entry from France, Tashkandi.


The next acceptance stage for the Sussex Stage is at the five-day declaration stage on July 25, when there is a final chance for horses to be supplemented at a cost of £20,000.
