BLUE SQUARE SHERGAR CUP DRAW 2004
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
ASCOT, THURSDAY, AUGUST 5



The draw for Saturday’s Blue Square Shergar Cup took place today at Ascot. The overall sponsor Blue Square make the Sodexho Great Britain & Ireland team the 1/2 favourites, with the Dubai Duty Free Rest Of The World Team a 6/4 chance


JASON WEAVER THE SODEXHO GREAT BRITAIN & IRELEAD TEAM SELECTOR EXPLAINS HIS CHOICES


1.40pm THE PRINCE’S TRUST SHERGAR CUP DISTAFF
“Forever Phoenix ran an absolute cracker here the other day when she was on the wrong side. I just thought it was a fairly straightforward first pick - the first one, two or maybe three in each of the races are stand-outs and then you have to start questioning yourself as to the one you would least like to ride as you go down the list.”

2.10pm PORTHAULT SHERGAR CUP JUVENILE
“It’s a question of “if, but and maybe” with the juveniles as to how much they are going to improve or step forward.

“I did speak to Mark Johnston. He was on Middleham Moor and I asked him about Spirit Of France and McEldowney. He said McEldowney is stepping up in trip after a couple of solid placed efforts and that he was pretty disappointed that Spirit Of France didn’t win last time as he certainly thinks a lot of him.”

2.45pm MURPHY’S FASTFLOW SHERGAR CUP MILE
“Pentecost loves it round here and I didn’t have him last year when he came and won, sinking the boat for the GBI team! He’s very reliable.

“It’s a very tough race. At the end of last year’s draw, I thought I had done a wonderful job - we had six favourites and looked absolute certainties! We bombed out really, really badly! I don’t want to be on the losing side this year.

“Michael looks pretty happy with his picks. He was chuckling away and swinging his legs - his feet don’t touch the floor with the chair he’s on!”

3.20pm SODHEXO SHERGAR CUP STAYERS
“Dorothy’s Friend is very consistent. When he last ran at Ascot he won well. There seems to be very little between him and Double Obsession. I was quite happy with getting Dorothy’s Friend because Double Obsession looked to have a pretty tough race in the Goodwood Cup last time, although I am not underestimating Mark Johnston’s talent to turn him out right on the day.”

3.50pm CARVILL SHERGAR CUP CHALLENGE
“I would have gone for Starry Lodge if I’d had first pick. However, I’m quite happy with Hawridge Prince as he absolutely bolted up at Salisbury and we have the right man on top in Johnny Murtagh - “The Enforcer.”

4.20pm DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP SPRINT
“It was tough to choose between the top two here - Alderney Race and Khabfair. My reason for selecting Alderney Race was that when Khabfair won here last time the race wasn’t particularly strong - there wasn’t much in it for him to beat and it was straightforward opportunity.”

ANDY TOWNSEND RELISHES CHALLENGE

Former Republic of Ireland international footballer Andy Townsend is looking forward to his role of Team Leader for the Sodhexo Great Britain and Ireland Team at Saturday’s Blue Square Shergar Cup.


Townsend, who will also be leading a soccer masterclass at 11.30am at Ascot on Saturday morning, revealed: “I am a huge lover of racing. I think it is part of a footballer’s upbringing that you have to find the local track and get down there, it’s great for a bit of team-bonding.”

“Over the years I’ve been to a lot of race meetings. I am now living in Warwickshire so Cheltenham is always a particular favourite. I have also been to Ascot a good few times. I really enjoy it.


“Niall Quinn persuaded me to have a racehorse when I was playing for Ireland. He was hooked up with Jim Bolger in Ireland at the time and us two as well as John Aldridge, Steve Staanton and Tony Cascarino owned a horse called Fireball. Unfortunately, he didn’t go as fast as his name suggested!”

“I’ve been there and owned a racehorse. I really enjoy racing and the whole build-up to the day is always very special.”

“I left it entirely to Jason to pick the horses but I might be after the odd tip or two at the weekend though! I like a flutter but have not been very successful - most footballers that get into racing are pretty poor tipsters and we’re best sticking to what we’re good at.”



GROUND

Nick Cheyne, Ascot’s Director of Racing, revealed: “There has been rain all around but it hasn’t got to Ascot yet. We have been dry for the past week. (Three hours after he spoke a thunderstorm hit Ascot)

“The ground at the moment remains GOOD TO FIRM, GOOD IN PLACES.


“We have been watering all week and are continuing to do so today. We will look tomorrow to see if we need to put some more water on. I think there might be a thunderstorm tonight or early tomorrow.”

ROBERTS PLEASED

Michael Roberts, team selector of the Dubai Duty Free Rest Of The World team, commented at the end of the draw: “I believe we can retain the Blue Square Shergar Cup. We have got some nice horses and two very strong favourites - Starry Lodge (3.50pm Carvill Shergar Cup Challenge) and Double Obsession (Sodexho Shergar Cup Stayers).

“I did not expect to get both and it is a huge advantage to have Frankie (Dettori) on Starry Lodge. Double Obsession seems well in - he ran so well in the Goodwood Cup at Goodwood and Mark Johnston’s horses do very well at Ascot. I think those are two good winners.


“Frankie has one or two decent rides and he should do well. It is going to be a good day’s fun - thanks to Ascot and the sponsors.


“It is going to be close but at the end of the day it is going to come down to the lower placings.

“Last year the Sodexho Great Britain & Ireland team was the red-hot favourite and we won - I am more confident this year than last year even though they are favourites again.


“My team members have been riding winners all over the world and they are top-class jockeys. Weichong Marwing is from South Africa and has been riding winners left right and centre in Dubai and has been to Hong Kong.


“There is Damien Oliver, Frankie Dettori and Yutake Take. The only guy I don’t know is Dario Vargiu, the Italian jockey, but I will leave him to Frankie.


“I was talking about which horses to select to Frankie this morning while he was walking the dog, while Ray Cochrane and Simon Holt also helped me. I had my head in the form book.”


MICHAEL ROBERTS EXPLAINS HIS CHOICES

Race One The Prince’s Trust Shergar Cup Distaff
“I wanted to pick Forever Phoenix but Jason (Weaver) got in first. But I am very pleased with Tychy - it was a very close call between the two anyway and it has not turned out too badly for us. It is quite an open event.”

Race Two The Porthault Shergar Cup Juvenile
“I like Embossed whom I though was the pick of the two Richard Hannon runners.

“My second choice was Kandidate whom I also got - I am pleased because I think the race will be between those two.”

Race Three The Murphy’s Fastflow Shergar Cup Mile
“This is a very competitive handicap - we haven’t got Pentecost who won for us last year but I think St Andrews will take all the beating while Greenslades is a horse high up on my list - I am just worried about the ground for him - and the top one - Vortex - is another classy individual.”

Race Four The Sodexho Shergar Cup Stayers
“Double Obsession is probably the horse who is best in on the day - the handicapper has raised him quite a bit since his last run at Goodwood and Mark Johnston does very well at this meeting. I also think that Double Obsession is a very good ride - Damien rides and I think he will take all the beating. The only danger I think is Dorothy’s Friend.”

Race Five The Carvill Shergar Cup Challenge
“It was very easy to pick Starry Lodge and I think he will be one of the shortest-priced favourites on the day. Frankie and Luca Cumani - what more can you say - I think he is a certainty - the bet of the day.”

Race Six The Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Sprint
“It looks a two-horse race on paper - Khabfair and Alderney Race. I probably would have gone for Alderney Race as well but I don’t think there is much between them. I am really pleased to have Doitnow, Frankie’s mount, who will come into the reckoning.”


Three of the Dubai Duty Free Rest Of The World team attended today’s draw at Ascot -
Weichong Marwing, Damien Oliver and Dario Vargiu.


MARWING - THE SOUTH AFRICAN


Three of the Dubai Duty Free Rest Of The World team attended today’s draw at Ascot - Weichong Marwing, Damien Oliver and Dario Vargiu.


Weichong Marwing commented: “It is nice to be here - I have done most of my riding back home in South Africa, though the last four and half years I have been based in Hong Kong where I teamed up with (trainer) Ivan Allan and rode a lot of winners for him.

“I decided to go back home and am spending a bit of time with Mike de Kock in Dubai - last season was an exceptional one there.


“We are just keeping our fingers crossed that next season will produce similar results. Last season we were a bit in the dark about which horses to take and we have a pretty good selection this time around - Mike de Kock is taking the Rothmans July winner Grazing, we have acquired the horse Yardarm, we still have Picture Moon and Right Approach, and South African’s champion sprinter Acute Destiny - a nice balance of horses for Dubai.


“I rode at Ascot last year - it was a wonderful experience and a lovely track to ride on. I rode a horse called Firebolt who finished seven or eight lengths behind in the King’s Stand Stakes.


“Saturday is another highlight in my career - Michael Roberts spoke to me about coming here and it is good to get a bit of advice from someone who was a champion and knows what he is talking about - we have to do the best we can.”


OLIVER - THE AUSTRALIAN

Damien Oliver, who flew into Britain in this morning, has good memories of the Blue Square Shergar Cup, having had his only British winner, Sailing, during the competition in 2000.


He declared: “It is a delight to be invited again. The last time I came was four years ago but I am certainly anticipating this year’s event with great excitement.


“When Media Puzzle got to Australia, he really thrived and he had two starts and two wins down there. It probably wasn’t the strongest Melbourne Cup that year but it was certainly a comprehensive victory.


“I haven’t spoken to Shane Warne (the Dubai Duty Free Rest Of The World team leader) yet but he certainly loves his racing and a party atmosphere. I am sure he will be out there enjoying it.


“I quite often see him at the Spring Carnival in Flemington and he gets right into the spirit. Ascot is a fantastic track to ride on and it is an honour to be asked to compete with such great teams of jockeys.

“I have got to know a lot of them very well over the years, with them coming down to Australia and meeting them in Hong Kong and Japan. It is great camaraderie and I am really looking forward to it.”

VARGIU - THE ITALIAN


Dario Vargiu said: “I had a good season last year, winning the Italian 1,000 Guineas and 2,000 Guineas, and this year I have won the 1,000 Guineas and Italian Derby.


“I spend three months of every year in Japan. I like having new experiences, riding at as many tracks as possible because it helps to become a good jockey.


“Falbrav made me big - he was a super horse. I have not ridden at Ascot before though I have seen many videos and will speak to Frankie Dettori and other jockeys. I am looking forward to Saturday.”
