CAMBRIDGESHIRE MEETING 2011, NEWMARKET

RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE

BETFRED CAMBRIDGESHIRE DAY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

 

PROSSER HAILS SUCCESSFUL THREE-DAY CAMBRIDGESHIRE MEETING

 

Betfred Cambridgeshire Day produced a fantastic occasion of sporting action and a racing crowd of 7,021 - fractionally up on last year - was privileged to witness heroics aplenty on the Rowley Mile, not least the historic victory of Sahpresa in the Group One Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes, her third triumph in the contest.

                       

Michael Prosser, Director of Racing at Newmarket, said: “We have enjoyed three wonderful days of racing, which have been enhanced by the movement of races from Ascot, notably the Group One Shadwell Fillies’ Mile and Group Two Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes.

 

“Looking back at today’s card, I must applaud Rod Collet who has achieved a fantastic training feat in bringing Sahpresa back for a third time to complete her unprecedented hat-trick of wins in the Group One Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes. She is a wonderful race mare, trained by a particularly nice man.

 

“We feel the three days have been successful and now look forward to the first ever Future Champions Day (Saturday, October 8), as well as four other days racing before our 2011 season finishes.”

THE GOING FOR BETFRED CAMBRIDGESHIRE DAY

 

The going today for Betfred Cambridgeshire Day is:

GOOD TO FIRM

 

GoingStick readings taken at 8.00am today:

Overall: 8.3

Far Side: 8.2

Stands’ Side: 8.2

Centre: 8.1

 

Stalls postion

12f - Centre

Remainder - Far Side

 

It was dry overnight but there was a heavy morning dew.

Today is forecast to be dry and sunny with temperatures of 19 - 20 Celsius.

Three millimetres of water was applied to the final nine furlongs after racing on Friday.

 

 

GROUND “EVEN” ACROSS THE ROWLEY MILE

 

Michael Prosser, Clerk of the Course at Newmarket, is pleased with ground conditions on the Rowley Mile after his staff worked late into the night to distribute three millimetres of water across the final nine furlongs, the distance of today’s Betfred Cambridgeshire.

 

That action, combined with another heavy dew across Newmarket, ensured that the going remains

 

GOOD TO FIRM

 

Prosser commented: “The going remains good to firm - it is decent, fast ground with no jar.

 

“The overall GoingStick reading is 8.3 today and it was 8.4 yesterday. We watered the course last night and put three millimetres on the final nine furlongs. The boys pulled the pipes off just after midnight. There was also a good, heavy dew this morning and the track walked well.

 

“Turftrax were in between 7am and 8am taking GoingStick readings up the side flanks and up the middle. The readings were very even - 8.2 on both the stands’ side and far side, and 8.1 up the middle.

 

“I think we have a very even strip. We haven’t had a race where we have had the field spread across the entire width of the track yet and we are not going to until we get to the Cambridgeshire itself. But last Saturday, as today, we put the stalls up the middle, on Thursday we put the stalls stands’ side and yesterday they went on the far side, so the whole track has been used evenly and it does walk very even.

 

“I am happy with the track and it is going to be a lovely day. It is forecast to be slightly warmer than yesterday, 20 Celcius or so, with a similar breeze of 10mph average, so I suspect it will dry a little bit as the day progresses.”

 

DARE TO DANCE MISSES BETFRED CAMBRIDGESHIRE

 

Lightly-raced three-year-old Dare To Dance, the market leader for today’s Betfred Cambridgeshire, will miss this afternoon’s race.

 

After walking the course at around 8.30am, trainer Jeremy Noseda spoke to the colt’s owner Richard Pegum in Australia and decided ground conditions were faster than ideal.

 

Speaking on Channel 4 Racing’s The Morning Line, Noseda said: “In my opinion it is good to firm ground and it will tighten up as the day goes on. They finished watering last night and I have seen it this morning with no chance for it to dry out and with a pretty heavy morning dew on it, so I've seen it at it's very best.

 

“It's lovely, fast racing ground, but I don't feel it's necessarily what my horse wants at this stage of his career in this type of race in the fourth race of his life. I feel this horse has a big future in front of him as a four-year-old."

 

ACTION NEW FAVOURITE

 

Following this morning’s withdrawal from the Betfred Cambridgeshire of Dare To Dance, who was 10/1 favourite for the famous handicap with the sponsor, Man Of Action now heads the market.

 

Godolphin’s four-year-old, who was successful on his latest start a fortnight ago at Doncaster, is now 9/1 favourite, from 11/1, with Betfred.

 

The other movers in the Betfred Cambridgeshire have been the German raider Ideology, who has halved in price from 50/1 to 25/1 after being tipped by the Racing Post’s Pricewise column, and Desert Romance, who has been cut to 40/1 from 66/1.

 

IDEOLOGY IN DEMAND

 

Ideology has been halved in price by many firms for the Betfred Cambridgeshire after being tipped by the Racing Post Pricewise column.

 

The sponsors have trimmed the German raider to 25/1 from 50/1 - a move mirrored by Ladbrokes, while William Hill and Paddy Power also offer 25/1 having been 40/1 earlier in the day.

 

Stan James have seen money for Godolphin’s Man Of Action in the same race and make Frankie Dettori’s mount 8/1 co-favourite of three alongside Questioning and Cry Fury. Betfred have also clipped Man Of Action to 9/1 from 11s and William Hill go 10/1 from 12/1.

 

Betfred have also seen support for Desert Romance (40/1 from 66/1) while Circumvent is 25/1 from 33/1 with both William Hill and Ladbrokes.

 

The other horse being backed in the Betfred Cambridgeshire is PJ O’Gorman’s Albaqaa and he is 16/1 from 20s with both Ladbrokes and Paddy Power.

 

Aidan O’Brien has a trio of runners in the opening Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes and it is his Wrote who has come in for support. The High Chaparral colt is 7/2 from 5/1 with Ladbrokes and 100/30 from 9/2 with Paddy Power. Stan James have also cut O’Brien’s Daddy Long Legs in the same race and go 7/2 from 4/1.

 

Best Terms has hardened at the head of the market with Betfred for the Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes and is 5/4 from 11/8.

The other Group One event on the card is the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes and William Hill have seen support for two runners in the race. O’Brien’s Together is 8/1 from 9/1 and Strawberrydaiquiri has been supported at bigger prices and is now 25/1 from 33s.

 

The Betfred The Bonus King Handicap is proving to be a lively event with Stan James moving Golden Delicious to 9/1 from 11/1 and William Hill trimming Asraab to 6/1 from 8/1.

 

IDEAL CHOICE FOR PRICEWISE

 

            Tom Segal, writing as Pricewise in the Racing Post, bids for a Newmarket double and selects Ideology to land the Betfred Cambridgeshire.

 

            The leading tipster landed a gamble yesterday afternoon with Ransom Note in the Nayef Joel Stakes and has gone for a big-priced selection in the first leg of the autumn double by selecting a 50/1 chance.

 

            Jamie Spencer was due to ride the ante-post favourite Dare To Dance until trainer Jeremy Noseda withdrew the three-year-old this morning and the jockey had been extolling the virtues of the colt on the front page of the Daily Star’s racing pullout.

 

            The paper’s correspondent, Tony Lewis, pricked his ears when hearing that Sir Henry Cecil and his wife, Jane, have a camera (in reality a monitor) in their bedroom and he pens an article inside the pullout on how the Warren Place handler uses the device to keep an eye on the condition of superstar Frankel.

 

            Lewis also details Lyric Of Light’s success in yesterday’s Shadwell Fillies’ Mile with the Breeders’ Cup now a possible for the Godolphin filly.

 

            Mark “The Couch” Winstanley features and after successfully tipping Cheveton in last week’s Ayr Silver Cup he selects Questioning to land this afternoon’s Betfred Cambridgeshire for trainer John Gosden.

 

            The Times’ Alan Lee was also intrigued by Cecil’s camera and in addition to highlighting Lyric Of Light’s success he also points out the fact that Roger Charlton sends Cityscape over to Italy for the Premio Vittorio Di Capua.

 

            Charlton, with two runners in the Betfred Cambridgeshire, has booked Richard Hughes for Cry Fury. The jockey rode Charlton’s first winner of the race in 1995 (Cap Juluca) but anybody reading significance into the booking may be misled. “I couldn’t find another jockey,” Charlton told Lee.

 

            The Times’ tipster Rob Wright selects’ David O’Meara’s Desert Romance to cause an upset in the Betfred Cambridgeshire.

 

            The Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes is the other Newmarket feature today and Chris McGrath, writing in The Independent, believes French filly Sahpresa can land the Group One event for the third year running.

 

            Jim ‘Croc’ McGrath also believes that Sahpresa can do the business and tips her in The Daily Telegraph, while his colleague Marcus Armytage reflects on a “magnificent” piece of work by Frankel yesterday morning ahead of the colt’s next run on QIPCO Champions Day at Ascot on October 15.

 

            Greg Wood in The Guardian also attended yesterday’s Cecil press conference and leads off on that, but fails top share his colleagues interest in the trainer’s bedroom behaviour and the camera fails to feature. Will Hayler provides the paper’s tips and selects Red Gulch for rookie trainer Ed Walker in the Betfred Cambridgeshire.

 

            Claude Duval leads The Sun’s racing pullout by highlighting Lyric Of Light’s win and highlights her Classic credentials by pointing out that the filly is just 8/1 with Coral for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas next spring back here at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse.

 

            The Sun’s tipster, Templegate, believes Albaqaa can take the Betfred Cambridgeshire for another rookie trainer in PJ O’Gorman, while the Daily Express’s never-seen Bev Swingell tips Constant Contact in the nine-furlong contest.

 

            Albaqaa is also the selection of Newsboy David Yates in Mirror Racing, which also features a column from Frankie Dettori who nominates Anatolian as his best ride of the day in the closing TurfTV Handicap.

 

            Marcus Townend, writing in the Daily Mail, makes the point that Cecil believes it will be a “miracle” if he overhauls Richard Hannon in the trainers’ championship, with his colleague Sam Turner plumping for Stevie Thunder in the Betfred Cambridgeshire.

NEWMARKET HOSTS TWO totescoop6 RACES AS PUNTERS CHASE £650,000

 

Today’s two big features at Newmarket, the Betfred Cambridgshire (3.50pm) and the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes (3.10pm), form two legs of the totescoop6, which could yield £650,000.

The win fund today stands at £57,994 as that also rolled over after no one succeeded in winning last week. The combined pools should see the total pot reach £650,000.

 

The 32-runner Betfred Cambridgeshire, in which sponsor and totescoop6 operator Betfred makes Man Of Action its 9/1 favourite, is leg five of the totescoop6.

 

Sahpresa is primed for an attempt to become the first mare to win the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes on three occasions and is 2/1 favourite with Betfred to succeed. The Group One mile contest is the third leg of the totescoop6.

 

Betfred and totepool spokesman George Primarolo, said: “Fred is once again guaranteeing the totescoop6 bonus fund to the tune of £500,000, which means that anyone winning this weekend’s bet could take their winnings to around £650,000 next Saturday,”

Race One - Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes

Winner quote

 

THREE UP FOR O’BRIEN IN LODGE

 

Aidan O’Brien saddled the first three home in the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes, courtesy of the successful Daddy Long Legs and his stablemates Tenth Star and Wrote.

 

The winner made most of the running under Colm O’Donoghue, with the 11-/ chance quickening away from the field inside the distance to improve on his fourth-place finish in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.

 

Tenth Star came home for second, three-and-a-quarter-lengths adrift of the winner, with Wrote a further half-length away in third.

 

O’Brien said: “I am delighted and they have all run lovely races. With three-year-old colts, it is great when they all run like that.

 

“The winner was very green at Doncaster last time out but Joseph (O’Brien) was very happy with him. He said that a mile here on fast ground would suit and the horse learned a lot at Doncaster.

 

“It is a big step from a Gowran maiden to the Champagne so he will have learned a lot. He is a beautiful moving horse and there was lovely ground today.

 

“There is the Racing Post Trophy and the Breeders’ Cup races to consider and all those races are open to him.

 

“He is by an American sire, Scat Daddy, so the Breeders’ Cup is a definite possibility. He has a lot of options and is an exciting horse.”

 

O’Brien added: “Tenth Star ran a lovely race. Joseph rode him last time and said he wanted much better ground which is why he was here.

 

“Wrote also appreciated the better ground and they are both possible for all the upcoming two-year-old races.”

Ladbrokes quote the successful Daddy Long Legs at 33/1 for both the QIPCO 2000 Guineas and Investec Derby.

LONG LEGS PLEASES O’DONOGHUE

 

Jockey Colm O’Donoghue was delighted with the attitude shown by Daddy Long Legs when winning the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes by three and a quarter lengths.

 

“He is very straightforward,” said O’Donoghue. “He jumped great, travelled really good and moved up through the gears. He is a nice horse, who is improving.

 

“He’s very mature mentally for a two-year-old and deserved that win, he’s done well for the experience of his last run at Doncaster.

 

“Aidan’s horses are strong at the moment - they are fit and well - and the two-year-olds are really starting to progress. This is a big horse with a great action and temperament - he will keep improving. He’s a nice horse to look forward to for next year.

 

“The ground out there is good to firm and everybody here does a great job.”

Juddmonte Royal Lodge (Group Two)

 

O’BRIEN FILLS FIRST THREE SPOTS

 

Aidan O’Brien’s trio of runners filled the first three places in the Group Two Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes, with Tenth Star (6/1) and Wrote () filling the minor places in the mile contest behind the victorious Daddy Long Legs.

 

Ireland’s champion trainer was delighted with the second and third and earmarked the Breeders’ Cup and the Group One Racing Post Trophy as possible targets for the pair, where they could reoppose the winner.

 

Tenth Star is owned by the Niarchis Family in partnership with Sue Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith. The Dansili colt, a Listed winner at Leopardstwon in June, was having his first start for 65 days.

 

Wrote, on the other hand, was kept busy last month, following a debut third with a pair of victories, latterly in a Galway nursery.

 

O’Brien said: “Tenth Star ran a lovely race. Joseph (O’Brien) rode him the last day and he said he wanted much better ground, it was very bad ground he rode him in, so that’s why he was here - he was also in the Beresford Stakes at the Curragh.

 

“He ran a very nice race. He was a little bit slowly away but he was nicely balanced and William (Buick) was happy with him. He had a nice break before today.

 

“Joseph also rode Wrote when he won his nursery and he said the same thing, that he wanted better ground than when he won his nursery in Galway, and that’s why he was here too.

 

“They are both possible for those races (Racing Post Trophy and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile). Colm (O’Donoghue on Daddy Long Legs) just happened to be the one that broke first.

 

The Niarchos Family racing manager Alan Cooper said: “Last time Tenth Star ran it was on pretty heavy ground and he didn’t like it but he was much happier today. Whether he runs again will be up to Aidan. We will have to regroup but as he’s a good ground horse, it will depend on whether autumn comes on strong or we have an Indian summer.”

   

 

GOING AFTER THE FIRST

 

Colm O’Donoghue, rider of the 11/4 winner Daddy Long Legs, said: “It is good to firm with no jar. They have done a great job with the ground.”

 

William Buick, on board the second placed Tenth Star, said: “Fast, good to firm ground.”

 

Jamie Spencer, jockey of the third Wrote, said: “Quick.”

 

Richard Hills, partner of Farhaan, said: “Good to firm - it is quicker than yesterday.”

 

Richard Hughes, on board Rockinante, said: “Quick.”

Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes

 

LIGHTENING IS SHEIKH’S PEARL IN CHEVELEY PARK STAKES

 

            Sheikh Fahad Al Thani may be the new billionaire on the racing block but his Pearl Bloodstock operation is making rapid strides, so it was no surprise to see Lightening Pearl strike to give the Qatari Royal a first Group One victory in the Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes.

            The Marju filly, a 3/1 shot trained in Ireland by Ger Lyons, for whom it was also a first Group One success, burst to the lead two furlongs out under Johnny Murtagh and held the determined challenge of 33/1 hope Sunday Times to score by half a length.

            Sheikh Fahad said: “This filly is all heart. Hopefully, she will progress to next year. It was a team effort and with a team you see what you get. Ger did a magnificent job, as did David (Redvers) who bought her and has been placing her.

            “I am delighted, I couldn’t be happier. It is my second year in the game and I have a Group One winner. She is the only one that we bought at Goffs last year and she has turned out to be a Group One filly. We have 45 horses in training now. We try to go for quality, not quantity.”

 

            Lightening Pearl was supplemented for the six-furlong contest following an impressive success in the Group Three Go And Go Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh on August 28.

            Asked when he had decided it was worth the Sheikh paying the £15,000 fee to come to Newmarket, Lyons stated: “About two minutes after she won the Round Tower.

            “When Johnny got off her at the Curragh, he said, ‘this could be our Group One, Ger’. Johnny rode me my first winner, he rode us our first Royal Ascot winner and he has ridden us this. He has been with us from the start.

            “We are well known for trying to get black-type - fillies need it - but it was a no-brainer to supplement her  after she won her Group Three at the Curragh. You don’t win Group Three races in Ireland by five lengths.

            “I was third in a maiden at Dundalk last night and the dams of the first three were all Group One winners, so Irish racing is strong at the minute. We are taking on Aidan O’Brien everyday of the week but my mother was a great golfer and she always told me that, if I wanted to be a good golfer, I would have to play with good golfers. If you want

class=Section9>

to be a good trainer, you have to play with the best and I am playing with the best every day.

            “You can’t do it without the horse. We knew that we had a great bunch of fillies at home and they have all been winning. After she won her maiden at Roscommon we thought that she could be special because it was a tough enough race.           

            “I have 0-60 horses at home that are harder to train, she is very very straightforward. She has turned up, she works, you put a saddle on, she goes to the races and she wins. She is tough and she is a pleasure to train.”

            As to future targets, Lyons may look to Longchamp and a race that Sheikh Fahad sponsors.

He revealed: “We will have a look - we sponsor the Qatar Prix Marcel Boussac. We will have a chat (with Sheikh Fahad).

            “You work hard and you make your own luck. I’ve been working hard and I have a good team around me who have been honest from day one and I always knew that, with the type of horses we buy, that there is a Classic in us and if there is, it’s going to be a Guineas. That’s the type of horses we buy and when this filly came home I said, this year we have a smashing bunch of fillies.”

            Lightening Pearl earned quotes for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas over a mile at Newmarket next spring with Ladbrokes offering 20/1 and Paddy Power being more cautious at 16/1.

            Lyons commented: “If we are still alive, then the 1000 Guineas would be the plan. It’s great for Sheikh Fahad - we trained his first winner and now his first Group One - and huge congratulations for David Redvers and his team. They are working very, very hard and are very, very straight - Sheikh Fahad is in very safe hands.

            “The owner deserves this and the game needs people like this. This guy has been married to David Redvers and I am married to David Redvers - we are sort of sleeping partners.”

 

Race two - Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes

Winning jockey quote

                                                                                                                       

MURTAGH HITS 99

                                                                                                           

Johnny Murtagh partnered his 99th Group One winner as Lightening Pearl landed the Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes.

 

The jockey has enjoyed a long and fruitful association with trainer Ger Lyons and believes the filly to be a live contender for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas next spring on the Rowley Mile.

 

Murtagh said: “It means a lot because Ger is a great friend of mine. He has done a great job - he has got some quality horses now - and I am absolutely thrilled for him, all his staff and his family to give them a Group One because I know how much it means to him.

 

“This was a big day for everyone. I rode Ger’s first winner in 1994, first Listed winner, first Group Three winner, first Royal Ascot winner and now his first Group One winner.

 

“There was a lot of pressure on, especially with a big new owner coming into the yard and owning this filly.

 

“She won her last race well and did it by five lengths that day and has been coming along nicely.

 

“Ger had a couple of nice fillies and she was one of them as she proved at the Curragh last time.

 

“I said to him after that race that if she came out of it well then they should supplement her for this.

 

“I think she could be a Guineas filly. She has plenty of speed but I think she will get a mile.

 

“She has proven herself on the track and Newmarket next spring would be a good target for her.

 

“She was always good, and I liked her the first day I rode her. She won her maiden well and ran against some good fillies in Ireland.

 

“I think that the key has been bringing her back to six furlongs. I always thought that she wanted seven furlongs or a mile but, the more races she ran in, the faster she got.

 

“She was very professional today. She had a little look at the big screen when she got to the front but I think that she had the race won a long way out.”

 

SECOND RACE PLACED QUOTES

JAGUAR CARS CHEVELEY PARK STAKES (GROUP 1)

 

TIMES JUST LOSES OUT

 

Sunday Times flew at the finish of the Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes to go down by half a length to Lightening Pearl.

 

“I wish the race had been run over six furlongs and 10 yards because William Buick said she would have won in another 10 yards,” said the runner-up’s trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam. “I’ve always thought she was pretty good and I have some nice two-year-old fillies this year.

 

“She’s not had many races and could come back here for the Bosra Sham Stakes next month and try and go one better than her half-sister (Question Times) who finished second in that last year. She is only going to get better next season.”

 

The 11/8 favourite Best Terms could finish only fifth and jockey Richard Hughes reported: “She ran flat and I was beaten at halfway.”

THIRD RACE WINNING QUOTES

KINGDOM OF BAHRAIN SUN CHARIOT STAKES (GROUP 1)

 

SAHPRESA SUPREME

 

The brilliant French-trained mare Sahpresa took the Group One Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes for a third consecutive year.

 

Christophe Lemaire cruised to the lead in the 10-furlong contest and was never pushed to hold off the challenge of the fast-finishing Chachamaidee, who went down by a length.

 

Winning trainer Rod Collet said: “Well done to Sahpresa, not to me, and it’s a great pleasure. It’s also a sad occasion because his breeder and former owner Douglas McIntyre died a few days ago at the age of 92. He was one of the first owners at my stables and this filly was the dream of his life and she has been a dream of my life.

 

“Two years ago, she arrived here for the first time as the outsider - nobody was looking for us and the speed was very good, which was great for her.  Last year, we were only third or fourth favourite in this race, whereas it was the first time she started favourite in England when she came to Newmarket for the Falmouth Stakes in July. I joke that we came to England to have an English pace and we ended up with a French race in England - I had never seen it before in my life.

 

“We learnt from the Falmouth Stakes, which was a joke race, and so we changed our strategy a little bit. When you are favourite, sometimes you should change.

 

Newmarket is a great place for me, we were here earlier in the year when Nova Hawk came fourth in the Guineas.

 

“Sahpresa will now go for the Grade One Mile Championship at Kyoto in Japan on November 20 and she will also have an entry in the Hong Kong International Mile. I’ve no idea whether she will stay in training next year, it is something we must talk about with the owner.”

 

Jockey Christophe Lemaire added: “It was very easy today. She took the lead very easily - we were in front a little bit too soon but there was a little margin for us over the others.

 

“We know that she is a strong finisher so we wanted to be covered in the early part of the race and find a nice leader.  She relaxed well, even if the pace was slow, and, when I put her out and asked to go at the two-furlong marker, she accelerated very well. I didn’t want to take the lead too soon because she can stop in front but I think she had some margin to spare over the others today.

 

“She proved today that she is a true Group One mare and she has something special, like the really good ones.”

Second-place quote

 

CAREER BEST FOR CHACHAMAIDEE

 

Sir Henry Cecil described the performance of Chachamaidee as a “career best” after the filly finished second to Sahpresa in the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes.

 

Ian Mongan’s mount ran on strongly to the line to finish a length behind the 13/8 favourite, while stablemate Timepiece finished last of the eight runners.

 

Cecil said of the runner-up: “She has ran very well and I am pleased with her.

 

“The pace was very slow early which would not have suited but she has stayed on well to the line and the winner is a very good horse.

 

“All being well we will bring her back here for the Challenge Stakes over seven furlongs in two weeks’ time.

 

“I would say that was a career best from her, but the ground was just too quick for Timepiece.”

PRINCE RULES IN CAMBRIDGESHIRE

 

Tom Tate ended a losing run of 71 days and 34 runners as Prince Of Johanne powered clear of the field in the £160,000 Betfred Cambridgeshire.

 

The unconsidered 40/1 chance struck for home leaving The Dip and never looked like being reeled in under John Fahy.

 

The five-year-old stayed on strongly to the line to win with a length and a quarter in hand over Stevie Thunder, with a nose and the same separating Proponent and Nanton.

 

Tate said: “What a way to get off the cold list! It has been a great day.

 

“I could say I have laid him out for this all year, but I haven’t and this was a surprise.

 

“Both the race and the fast ground suited him. He has been running well all season so the form was there but I thought the handicapper had him.

 

“The two guys who own him are professional punters but they didn’t have a penny on!”

 

Fahy added: “I was second in this race last year on Steele Tango so to go one place better is happy days.

 

“All credit has to go to Mr Tate for getting him spot-on on the day.

 

“He is real tough - I won on him at Windsor last year and the ground is really key to him.

 

“He jumped, travelled great and when I kicked out of The Dip I knew he would not be caught.

 

“He is tough and has stayed further in the past and you do need to stay in these races.”

DRAW COSTS STEVIE THUNDER

 

The Ian Williams-trained Stevie Thunder came out best in a photo for second in the Betfred Cambridgeshire, a length and three-quarters behind the winner Prince Of Johanne.

 

“He ran his heart out,” said Williams’ assistant Kevin Frost. “Ryan (Clark) planned to go over to the other side but nobody went with him so he had to go back and join the others and the draw has ended up costing him a few lengths.

 

“This had been the plan for a while and he put in a career-best performance and he’s improving. He’s been a difficult boy in the stalls in the past and we even sent him hurdling, which he hated, and the Flat doesn’t seem so bad to him now! We’ll have to talk over whether he has another trip to Dubai.”

 

The ultra-consistent seven-year-old Proponent flew at the finish to come third, a nose behind Stevie Thunder.

“He is so consistent and a wonderful horse,” said trainer Roger Charlton. “He hit a flat spot in the race and ran on but it’s just hard to land one of these races.

 

“He tried to give 7lb to Green Destiny, who has subsequently gone up 30lb, in the spring and he was just beaten on the line at Goodwood last time so he is a model of consistency. I’m afraid the handicapper is not going to drop him and we’ll see where we go.

 

“There is more money in these handicaps than in Listed or Group 3 races and if he had been a nose closer he would have picked up over £25,000 for coming second today.”

NANTON CLEAN SWEEPS THE PLACES

 

If everyone loves a gallant loser then the veteran grey Nanton must be awash with affection after finishing late to clinch a place for the third time in the Betfred Cambridgeshire at odds of 16/1.

 

Jim Goldie’s charge actually had his head in front on his first attempt at the race in 2008, only to be headed as Tazeez relegated him to finish a length runner-up. His next effort in the nine-furlong cavalry charge a year later saw him come with what is now a trademark late run, only to cross the line in third, a length and three quarters behind the victorious Supaseus.

 

After missing the race last year, Nanton returned to tackle the 2011 Betfred Cambridgeshire under the burden of 9st 9lb.

 

Settled at the rear of the field under regular pilot Danny Tudhope, the Stuart Morrison-owned gelding began to make eye-catching progress down the stands’ side rail with two furlongs to race and, granted a clear run, flashed past the post in a three-way photo for the minor places, a little over a length and three-quarters behind the triumphant 40/1 shot Prince Of Johannes.

 

After forensic examination by the judge, Nanton was placed fourth, missing out on the runner-up berth by two noses as Stevie Thunder and Proponent were adjudged to be second and third respectively.

 

A philosophical George Goldie, representing his father, said: “He has run a great race and I think if the Cambridgeshire was an extra furlong he might have won the race. He has won over a mile and six so he stays further.

 

“There isn’t a whole lot left for him now this season. The owner is keen to go to Dubai with him. We have always been a bit worried about the effects of going out there but now he’s nine it might be a gamble worth taking.”

 

Tudhope was thrilled with his mount, whom he has partnered 22 times for three wins.

 

The jockey commented: “He ran well again and it was probably a career best. He travelled well and came home really strong, there are no excuses.

 

“He has been a great horse to ride and he has been all my career. He’s certainly no worse for being the age he is.”

E.B.F. Dansili Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery

 

PIMPERNEL BLOOMS IN JERSEY LILY

 

Pimpernel will have another stab at Listed company after winning the E.B.F. Dansili Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery in impressive style under Frankie Dettori.

 

Mahmood Al Zarooni’s charge was only third in a Salisbury Listed contest last time but notched a second success in handicap company when taking today’s seven-furlong contest, and looked every inch a two-year-old on the upgrade.

 

The Invincible Spirit filly loomed ominously on the near side of the field with three furlongs remaining and burst clear in the dip before stretching away to win by a length and half from the previously unbeaten 4/1 shot Nemushka.

 

Sent off the 11/4 favourite, Pimpernel is likely to be seen once more this term before heading to Godolphin’s winter quarters in Dubai.

Simon Crisford, Godolphin racing manager, said: “She won nicely and we will step her up into Listed stakes company next time. She will have one more run and then she will go off to Dubai for the winter.

 

“I think we will keep her to  seven furlongs for now - that’s a good winning trip for her - and she will probably be racing over a mile in the winter, but we will be taking it one step at a time. She is thoroughly honest and genuine.

 

“She could possibly (be a filly for the UAE 1,000 Guineas) but that is a long, long way off. First of all she has to step up into stakes company here, which she will do next time, possibly at Newbury depending on what the ground is like.”

NEMUSHKA FINISHES SECOND

 

The highly-regarded Nemushka found Pimpernel a length and a half too good in the EBF ‘Dansili’ Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery although the pair were five lengths clear of the remainder.

 

“The winner must be good because we like our’s a lot,” said the runner-up’s trainer Richard Fahey. “She has a habit of hanging in her races and we don’t know why. If she had stayed straight she might have made the winner sweat.”

 

Mark Johnston, trainer of owner-breeder Kirsten Rausing’s third-placed Nimiety, said: “I’m happy enough with that. She maybe lost a bit of ground going into the dip and Kirsten felt that the fast going may not have suited her but she stayed on.

 

“Kirsten has left it up to me to decide but we might call it a day for this season because I think she will be a better filly next year.”

BETFRED THE BONUS KING HANDICAP

 

GOLDEN DESERT RELISHES GROUND

 

The Robert Mills-trained Golden Desert, carrying the colours of Tottenham Hotspur footballer Scott Parker, enjoyed the Rowley Mile going when landing the Betfred The Bonus King Handicap.

 

“He’s been screaming out for firm ground,” said Mills. “He’s been very unlucky umpteen times and it’s unusual to get ground as fast as this here.

 

“I haven’t spoken to Scott, he’s hard to get hold of on match days as I don’t think they are allowed to use mobiles until they are outside the ground.

 

“This horse is also in the big race at Ascot next Saturday but needed the penalty from winning this to give him a remote chance of getting in. If he did get in the race he’d run otherwise he would go for an 86-100 race back at Ascot a couple of weeks later. That would be it for the season and he’s in the Horses In Training Sale at Tattersalls at the end of October.”

BOY BOUND FOR ASCOT

 

Chris Dwyer has his eye firmly on Champions Day at Ascot for Mia’s Boy after the seven-year-old flashed home for second in the Betfred The Bonus King Handicap.

 

The 18/1 chance picked up well in the closing stages to finish a length and a half behind the successful Golden Desert.

Dwyer said: “He finished the race off well and I was delighted with him.

 

“Hopefully, we will get the winner’s prize at Ascot in a couple of weeks as he will go for an apprentice race there on Champions Day.

 

“They should go fast over the seven furlongs there which will suit him and we will hope for the best.”

Win and placed quote

 

DETTORI DOUBLES UP

 

Frankie Dettori bagged his second winner of the afternoon and completed a near 7/1 double as Anatolian rallied to take the TurfTV Handicap.

 

Godolphin’s 11/10 favourite looked in trouble at one point of the mile-and-a-half event but found his stamina coming into play late on and he stretched away to complete a hat-trick and deny market rival Tmaam by a length and a half.

 

Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford said: “He is a nice progressive horse but there are no great plans for him.

“The race turned into a sprint but he saw it out well and we will find another for him soon.”

 

Trainer Mark Johnston said of the runner-up: “It was a good run and I can not complain.

 

“It was a bit of a funny race in that they went slow.

 

“He will eventually want further but a mile and a half is fine for now.”
