Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course, said: “We are leaving the going description as soft pending what happens overnight.

“We have had approximately 1.4mm of rain today during racing.

“We are taking the rail down in the last three furlongs of the straight - this will create a fresh strip of ground on the far side.”


Punters searching for clues concerning the draw for Saturday’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup witnessed horses drawn nine, five, seven and 12 finish in the first four places in today’s concluding Zuhair Handicap.

Two of the jockeys concerned including John Egan, who rode winner Sierra Vista, offered little to those considering an ante-post flutter.

Egan said: “Between now and Saturday a lot can change. David [Barker, winning trainer] just asked me and I couldn’t really tell him - I honestly don’t know.”

Chris Catlin, rider of Sir Edwin Landseer, added: “It’s impossible to say really.”


A Classic winner and an Ascot Gold Cup runner-up are among ten horses declared for tomorrow’s Lady O Goodwood Cup (Group 2).

The Classic winner is Millenary, the most successful runner in the race, with more than £800,000 in prize money to his name and ten victories from 31 outings. Millenary is trained near Goodwood by Arundel-based John Dunlop, yet curiously the eight-year-old has raced only once at the Sussex venue. That was in 2000, when he won the ABN Amro Stakes prior to success in the Rothmans Royals St Leger at Doncaster. On his latest start he was fourth to Gamut in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes.

The Ascot Gold Cup runner-up is Distinction, who was saddled by Sir Michael Stoute to finish a neck second to Westerner when Royal Ascot was held at York last month. Sir Michael has won the Lady O Goodwood Cup just once, with Girandole in 1975, so his record in the race bears no comparison to that of Mark Johnston, who has landed the Lady O Goodwood Cup five times.

Middleham-based Johnston, who saddled Darasim to win the two-mile contest last year, has declared three runners - Golden Quest, who won the Tatler Summer Season Handicap at Glorious Goodwood on Tuesday, Winged d’Argent and Hearthstead Wings. Darasim, who was among the five-day entries, was not declared at the overnight stage.

This will not be the first time Johnston has pitched Hearthstead Wings and Winged d’Argent against each other - they tackled the John Smith’s Extra Smooth Silver Cup at York earlier this month, when three-year-old Hearthstead Wings was fourth to Lost Soldier Three (a runner tomorrow), and Winged d’Argent trailed in a disappointing last of eight. Softer ground at Glorious Goodwood will almost certainly see him in a better light.

Hearthstead Wings was only beaten a length at York, and was third to the Geezer at Haydock on his previous start, form that was given a boost when the latter horse won yesterday’s ABN Amro Stakes at Goodwood.

However, three-year-olds rarely win the Lady O Goodwood Cup. Jardines Lookout (2002), Lucky Moon (1990) and Sergeyevich (1987) have been the only successful members of that generation in the past 30 years.

The other candidates for tomorrow’s big race are Tungsten Strike and Lochbuie, who were second and seventh respectively to Sergeant Cecil in last month’s John Smith’s Northumberland Plate, Shabernak, who won a Listed contest at Sandown earlier this month, and Dancing Bay, fourth in the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot’s York fixture on his most recent outing.


John Maxse, who has a new job after 12 years in the press office at the Jockey Club, has been presented with an award by members of the media.

Claude Duval of The Sun made the presentation today at Glorious Goodwood.

Maxse, whose youthful appearance belies a shrewd operator adept at handling tricky questions from the media, industry members and the public, joined the Jockey Club’s Portman Square offices in 1993 as assistant to the head of communications, David Pipe. When Pipe retired in 1997, Maxse took over, and quickly established a rapport with the media.

Part-juggler, part diplomat, and with a thorough knowledge of the many Rules of Racing, Maxse became the face of the Jockey Club, adept at handling questions from the press, and on television and radio.

He is also a skilful amateur rider, with 20 point-to-point winners to his name. On one proud occasion he was asked by Martin Pipe to ride Canadiane in a hurdle race at Leicester - the pair were narrowly beaten into second under topweight.

Maxse, who remains with the Jockey Club as advisor on all its non-regulatory activities - including racecourses, Jockey Club Estates in Newmarket and Racing Welfare - said today: “One part of the job that I’m missing already is contact with the British racing media. That was a rewarding and challenging part of the job.

“I suppose the two issues that remain in my mind from my time in the press office are the foot and mouth crisis [in 2001] and the Panorama investigation into alleged corruption in racing. Now I’m looking forward to the new challenges ahead.”


Laurie Brannan, a well-known figure on British racecourses for his public relations role, has received Goodwood’s Media Dinner Award.

Brannan, head of Berkshire-based Sportsguide Ltd, received the award on Tuesday evening from Rod Fabricius, Goodwood’s Managing Director, and said later: “It was a stunning shock to receive the award. I was speechless.”

Having entered racing journalism through the Sporting Pink, Brannan eventually joined the Racecourse Association and was given responsibility for looking after PR at 23 racecourses. One of them was Goodwood, and when he eventually set up his own company, Sportsguide, in 1978, he retained a role at the Sussex venue. Sportsguide is now responsible for ceremonial duties at Goodwood.

Brannan’s son, Philip, now works alongside his father in the business, while his daughter, Amanda, is a senior producer at Sky Sports.

Asked about his interest in racing, Brannan said: “I still get a buzz from it, and it’s why I still keep going.”

Previous recipients of the Media Dinner Award have been Sir Peter O’Sullevan, Jack Berry, Mark Johnston, Charles Fawcus, Lord Oaksey and George Ennor.


David Elsworth reported The Geezer as being in fine fettle this morning after his magnificent five-length success in yesterday’s Group Three ABN Amro Stakes at Goodwood.

The Jeff Smith-owned three-year-old readily drew clear over a furlong out under Richard Quinn to beat Unfurled comprehensively.

“The Geezer is fine this morning and there are no problems,” said the master of Whitsbury Manor.

The ABN Amro Stakes is one of the best trials for the Ladbrokes St Leger with seven of the last 11 winners going on to run in the final British Classic, producing two victories, courtesy of Nedawi in 1998 and Millenary in 2000, a second, two thirds, a fourth and a fifth.

Yesterday the trainer nominated the Ladbrokes St Leger as his charge’s principal target, for which he is a best-priced 10/1 with Coral, via the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York’s Ebor Meeting.

He is still thinking along those lines. “The Great Voltigeur Stakes is one of the races that we are considering. I should think that he will have another race before the St Leger and the Voltigeur would be the obvious route,” explained Elsworth.

The Geezer appeared to relish the good to soft ground yesterday and when asked if he would be hoping for some cut in the ground for the St Leger, Elsworth responded: “It’s a good idea but it’s no good hoping for soft ground as it’s something we can’t do anything about.

“The time of year when the Leger is held is when the ground does often get a bit softer.”

Despite training a host of big race winners under both codes, Elsworth is still chasing a first domestic Classic.

“A first Classic would be nice for the horse and for Mr Smith - I could deal with it and it would be great,” enthused the handler.


Today’s crowd came to 19,362, down 632 (-3%) on the Wednesday last year because of the weather.


Michael Hills was suspended for three days (August 7 to 9) for failing to weigh in on the sixth Shannon Springs in the cantorspreadfair.com Handicap and his horse was disqualified.

Richard Hills was suspended for one day (August 7) for careless riding on Ghurra, second in the Weatherbys Bank Fillies’ Handicap, after he allowed his mount to drift left into the third Kryssa.



Kieren Fallon rode the opening winner on day one of Glorious Goodwood, and he matched that feat on day two, when driving Afrad to victory in the Goodwood Stakes Handicap.

After two miles and five furlongs, the Nicky Henderson-trained four-year-old passed the post one and a quarter lengths ahead of Ten Carat, with Theatre one and a half lengths back in third. The winner survived a stewards’ enquiry before his owners, The Not Afraid Partnership, collected the race trophy.

Henderson, who bought Afrad at the Arc Sale in France for 22,000, said: “He was the first lot through the ring, but I thought he was slipping through rather cheaply and bought him to go hurdling, even though he’s rather small. We were actually after another Aga Khan horse who went for about 140,000 more.

“We had some fun with him in the winter - he was second at Ayr and Punchestown, won a novice at Newbury and then I gelded him. Now we’ve had bit of fun on the Flat.

“The trip was an experiment. It did look when he won over a mile and a half the other day that he wanted to go a bit further, so I did jump it a bit - like a mile and one furlong.

“He’s a smashing little fellow, and I’m the first to admit he’s not very big. He doesn’t do much in front and tends to idle a bit.

“Anthony Bromley has just bought his full brother in France, so we’ll be getting him to race for the Million In Mind Partnership.”

Asked to say what his plans are for Afrad, Henderson said: “Kieren says just go for the Cesarewich, and we’ll freshen him up a bit beforehand because he’s been on the go a long time.”

Fallon commented: “He was cantering in behind and as soon as I asked him to quicken he has gone past Richard’s mount (Hughes) and then idled. He stayed well.”


After today’s opening Goodwood Handicap, the following jockeys reported the ground as:

Adrian Nicholls, rider of Fourth Dimension, Fran Ferris, rider of Frontlinefinancier, Seb Sanders, rider of Circassian, Jimmy Fortune, rider of Fortune Island, David Kinsella, rider of Bobsleigh, Kieren Fallon, rider of winner Afrad, Richard Thomas, rider of Jayer Gilles, and Steve Drowne, rider of Historic Place, all said: “Soft.”

John Egan, rider of Theatre, said: “Very soft - really testing.”

Chris Catlin, rider of Establishment, and Jack Doyle, rider of Kaluana Court, both said: “Very soft.”



Sir Percy made it three wins from three outings in fine style in the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes, staying on well under Martin Dwyer to beat Cool Creek by a neck.

Winning trainer Marcus Tregoning said: “I walked the course with Richard Gaskill and we decided the route to go was straight up the middle and Martin Dwyer executed it perfectly - he said that the horse would be difficult to beat and he was right.

“He’s fine on this soft ground and I think that he would go on any ground. He’s not a typical two-year-old - he’s more of a three-year-old. I might give him one more run this year or I might put him away until next season.

“He might run in the Dewhurst but I will keep an open mind and take it step by step. He got a bit tired and he might go weak on me - if he shows me any signs of growing or immaturity, I might leave him alone.

“He’s comfortable at any distance and I think that he will stay really well.

“He might be good enough for the 2000 Guineas but I see him as a middle-distance horse for next year. He could go all the way.

“He was bought by myself and Angie Sykes and I didn’t have an owner for him. I kept him for three months myself but something had to go and then Victoria and Anthony Pakenham bought him - he’s the first horse they have had with me.”

Sir Percy received a best-priced quote of 40/1 for the 2000 Guineas with Paddy Power and Ladbrokes, while VC Bet were more impressed going 33/1 with Coral and totesport on 25/1. Paddy Power make the Mark Of Esteem colt a 40/1 chance for the Derby with Cashmans going 20/1.



Cool Creek and Black Charmer were separated by a mere short-head as they took second and third in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.

Although Sir Percy came out on top, trainers Richard Hannon and Mark Johnston expressed themselves pleased with the placed pair.

Hannon, who trains Cool Creek, said: “He’s too good a mover for this ground, but he’s a real battling, nice horse. It’s nice to come second, but disappointing not to win. We had the horse beaten on the inside then the winner came again up the middle - they don’t know where to go when they enter the straight on this ground.

“We’ve no plans for the horse, but wherever he goes it will be on better ground.”

Johnston, who saddled third-placed Black Charmer, said: “The winner looked like he had made his challenge and failed, then came again. You can’t take it away from him. He must be very, very good.

“Our horse has run a great race again and has been a model of consistency. We thought we’d give him a break after this, then realised it was the Gimcrack Stakes in three weeks time, so maybe we’ll give him a short break!

“We were thinking we would keep him to seven furlongs, but Joe [Fanning] has got off and said he’s got plenty of speed and could drop back to six.”



A former Derby hopeful became one of Europe’s leading milers today when winning the Cantor Spreadfair Sussex Stakes.

Proclamation, trained by Jeremy Noseda, beat the favourite, Soviet Song, by half a length with Ad Valorem two and a half lengths back in third. The winner, a three-year-old son of Darley stallion King’s Best, was given another top-class ride by Mick Kinane. On Saturday, Kinane won the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes on Azamour after trailing the field in the early stages, and he repeated that same style of ride here, bringing Proclamation wide of the field before holding Soviet Song’s late challenge.

Kinane said: “He’s a very talented horse. I got there sooner than I anticipated - I wanted to be the last to play my cards, but the opportunity was there for me to go on and hold Johnny [Murtagh on Soviet Song] a bit, and I thought it’s time for me to go.

“He has serious acceleration. I knew Soviet Song was going to come and I was there to be shot at, but he did enough to hold on.”

Noseda, who was gaining his biggest success following two Cheveley Park Stakes triumphs with Wannabe Grand and Carry On Katie, gave plenty of praise to Paul Morris, who rides Proclamation at home and has taught the horse to settle.

Noseda added: “He has a huge turn of foot. I asked Mick to be the last man to deliver his challenge, but Mick said he had to go because he knew he could put Johnny in the pocket. I’d like to hold him up for longer in the future. I’m sure he’s a Group 1 performer from six furlongs to one mile.

“The trainer must have been very foolish to ever consider him a Derby horse, but he’s a brother to a horse called No Refuge who was a good stayer and won over two and a half miles at Cheltenham. I must give a huge thanks to my team, especially Paul Morris who has done an unbelievable job on the horse. The horse is growing up and getting better.

“I’m delighted to win a Group 1 and thrilled to bring this horse through. We had big hopes for him for a long time and to finally deliver him here at this point is a huge thrill.

“I hope he could run in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup, but I’ll have to talk to Sheikh Mohammed about that.”

Proclamation, whose previous start resulted in a win in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot’s York meeting, raced in the colours of Abdullah Saeed Belhab on that occasion, but has since been gifted to Sheikh Mohammed’s wife, Princess Haya.



Soviet Song tried valiantly but was unable to record back-to-back victories in the Cantor Spreadfair Sussex Stakes, going down by half a length to Proclamation.

Trainer James Fanshawe said: “Soviet Song is still the Queen, there are no other Queens, but Proclamation is the King today.

“Someone told me yesterday that no horse has won this race twice and I wish they hadn’t bothered.

“The trouble with this more holding ground is that she can’t quicken up so well but she has still run a hell of a race to be second.

“We wanted to hold her up which we did and she settled well having got a bit warm beforehand. She had to come with her run but Proclamation sprinted clear and she couldn’t keep up with him and stayed on.

“She might have been hampered a bit but these things happen around Goodwood. She has still run a blinder.

“I might give her a break. The Breeders Cup is the plan at the back-end and we’ll have to see if she runs in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes or the Sun Chariot Stakes a week later. The Matron Stakes is a further possibility.

“Someone said to me the other day ‘enjoy the journey’ and she’s given us a great one!”



Patrick Chamings was magnaminous in victory, giving much of the credit for Foxhaven’s success to jockey Seb Sanders.

The trainer said: “Seb Sanders was absolutely adamant that we try him over a mile and a half. He has ridden him twice for us over a mile and a quarter.

“This is my first Glorious Goodwood winner but I haven’t backed him - I’m not a punter.

“He has stayed a mile and a half on soft ground so I would be pretty silly dropping him back in distance a lot.”

Sanders added: “It’s genuine soft ground but very wet so you can get through it - it’s testing enough though.

“When I was pulling up, I was waving my hands around a bit and that was mainly for the benefit of my weighing room colleagues. When we were down at the start some of them were saying why are you riding this over a mile and a half.”



Foxhaven proved too good for his rivals in the cantorspreadfair.com Handicap, beating Art Eyes and Tawqeet by two and a half lengths and one length.

David Elsworth, the trainer of Art Eyes, said: “We’ll be looking to get her some more black type in the future - she was fourth in a Listed race on her previous start so we’d like to build on that.

“She handled the ground okay, but didn’t really like it. We’ve no firm plans for her, but we’re pleased.”

Tawqeet, holds an entry in the Ladbrokes St Leger, but trainer John Dunlop was unwilling to commit the horse to the season’s final Classic.

Dunlop said: “Richard [Hills] was a little bit critical and said he thought the horse needed a pair of blinkers. So perhaps we’ll try that.

“I know they went no pace, but he travelled quite well. He won as a two-year-old on heavy, but the blinkers might help him concentrate a bit more.”



Strawberry Leaf, ridden by Steve Drowne and trained by Roger Charlton for owner/breeder Nicholas Jones, turned in a gutsy display to beat eight rivals in this fillies’ handicap.

Jones, who is based at the Coln Valley Stud, Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, bred Strawberry Leaf, her dam and grand-dam. He reported that Satin Bell, whose mating with Unfuwain produced today’s winner, has a Pivotal two-year-old filly in training with Charlton, a Golden Snake yearling filly and a Nayef colt foal who is a three-parts brother to Strawberry Leaf.

Charlton admitted he had no firm plans for the winner, other than to look for another fillies’ handicap.

Asked whether he thought she had been let into her first handicap on a lenient mark, Charlton said: “No, I don’t think so. If you look at the form book 77 is about right - don’t believe everything you read in the papers.

“What she did like was a step up in trip and she appreciated the ground. There was speculation about whether she would, and you can never tell until they run on it.”



Ghurra found just 3/1 market leader Strawberry Leaf one and three-quarters too powerful in the Weatherbys Bank Fillies’ Handicap.

Ed Dunlop, Ghurra’s trainer, said: “We thought that she had run on slowish ground last year - not that soft though but, then again, have any of them?

“That’s her first time running over that trip and she has stayed on well and been beaten by a better horse.”

Jockey Richard Hills added: “She ran well - she kept going.”

Gary Moore, trainer of third-placed Kryssa, a further three-quarters of a length back, believes his charge was unlucky.

He said: “I thought that she was very unlucky and didn’t get the run of the race. I can’t believe that they haven’t called a stewards’ enquiry. The second horse has shut her off.”



“She was impressive,” enthused John Dunlop after his Rosinka had beaten Best Double by seven lengths to leave favourite backers smiling all the way to the bank.

“She ran well at Newbury when second first time out and the form was franked by the winner who went on to be fourth in the Cherry Hinton. However the form was then let down by some of those behind the pair.

“I was dubious about the ground but she went through it well. She’s a nice filly but only time will tell how nice. I have no plans at all - we’ll think about it in the morning.

“Johnny [Murtagh, winning jockey] said she wouldn’t mind going seven furlongs and he said that last time as well.

“I’m very pleased as the owner Captain John Macdonald-Buchanan has a particularly long association with Goodwood and all his family are here today. His Lavington Stud is at Graffham near Petworth.”

Rosinka received a price of 40/1 for the 1000 Guineas from Paddy Power. The trainer added: “I think that can best be described as an irrelevance!”



Rosinka was a runaway winner of this two-year-old fillies’ maiden race, but considering the rain-softened ground there was plenty to like about the way Best Double and Magadar stayed on to take the minor honours.

Best Double, who finished second, is trained by Gerard Butler for Switzerland-based Marcus Berger. He bred Best Double by putting Whitsbury Stud stallion Compton Place on the mare Bestemor, who has since been covered twice by Erik Penser’s stallion Compton Admiral.

Reflecting on Best Double’s run, Butler said: “She’s a nice filly who came to us last year in very good shape [from Whitsbury Manor]. If the winner’s smart we’re not so bad, and at this stage I’m pleased with my filly’s performance. She’ll come on and hopefully we’ll find a maiden for her in the next couple of weeks.

“It will be interesting to see what she’s like on better ground, because Eddie [Ahern] says it’s getting close to heavy out there now.”



Sierra Vista, a five-year-old mare who cost a mere 500gns as a yearling, teed up a Glorious Goodwood double when landing the closing sprint handicap.

Trainer David Barker, who is based near Richmond in Yorkshire, now hopes to run Sierra Vista in Saturday’s Vodafone Stewards’ Cup, a race in which she could be joined by Mecca’s Mate, who runs in tomorrow’s Audi Stakes.

Barker said: “If they both eat up and come out of their races okay they’ll run on Saturday. It’s a long way from here to Yorkshire, so we might as well get some money while we can. If the horses are fine we’re here until Saturday night.”

Barker is enjoying a remarkable season - Sierra Vista was his 23rd winner from a stable containing just 20 horses - and he quipped: “It’s just tremendous. I just had to ring my mother up to check she’s still breathing.

”Sierra Vista likes any ground that is out of the ordinary, and this ground is definitely out of the ordinary. She’s won here and at Newmarket this year and at Newcastle on Plate Day, so it’s unbelievable.”

Referring to the weather and the going, he added: “If it was glorious it would be great, but if it was glorious she’d have been beaten. I told Mr Metcalfe [owner David Metcalfe] that it would be firm ground here this week and she wouldn’t run, so he cancelled his hotel. Then I rang him on Monday and said we’ve got a change of plan.”


Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s clerk of the course, this morning reported that the going had changed to


from good to soft after 15 millimetres of rain.

He said: “The course has taken the rain, which measured 15 millimetres between 4pm yesterday and 4am this morning, remarkably well.

“The forecast is for better weather later today, though there may be the odd shower, with the improvement continuing tomorrow.”


VC Bet reports support for some of the ‘rags’ in this afternoon’s feature, the £300,000 Group 1 Cantor Spreadfair Sussex Stakes (3.25pm). Le Vie Dei Colori has been cut from 40/1 to 20/1, while Kandidate is 66/1 (from 100/1) and Tucker is 66/1 (from 150/1). Sleeping Indian has also been trimmed into 11/2 (from 6/1).

The same firm has seen money for Johnathan Geake’s Historic Place in the opening Goodwood Handicap (2.15pm) - he is 6/1 (from 13/2).

One To Win and Art Eyes are the ones for money in the cantorspreadfair.com Heritage Handicap (4.00pm) with VC Bet. The former is now 6/1 (from 7/1), while Art Eyes has shortened to 12/1 (from 16/1).

The same bookmaker has seen cash for Simpsons Mount in the concluding Zuhair Handicap (5.45pm). The four-year-old is 14/1 (from 20/1).

totesport’s biggest mover is Kandidate, who is 66/1 (from 100/1) as a result of being tipped up in The Sun newspaper.

Sleeping Indian has attracted money with Coral, who go 11/2 (from 13/2) about John Gosden’s charge, who was Pricewise’s selection in the Racing Post.

The Barking-based firm also reports support for top-weight Bay Story in the the cantorspreadfair.com Heritage Handicap. The Kris S colt is 8/1 (from 10/1).

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is another company which has received money for both Sleeping Indian and Kandidate in today’s feature. Sleeping Indian is currently trading at 11/2 (from 7/1), while the latter is 40/1 (from 100/1).

Tony Coleman, Paddy Power’s Racecourse Public Relations Officer, who explained that the company is tremendously busy with the Galway Festival, said that his company had also received support for Simpsons Mount in the last and Afrad in the Goodwood Handicap.

Simpsons Mount is 16/1 (from 20/1), while Afrad, an intriguing Nicky Henderson runner who will have the assistance of champion jockey Kieren Fallon, has been trimmed from 9/2 into 4/1.
