Royal Rendezvous delivers on Plate promise

Royal Rendezvous improved on last year’s second place to take top honours in the Tote Galway Plate on day three of the Ballybrit festival. Beaten three-quarters of a length in 2020, jockey Paul Townend kept the faith – picking Royal Rendezvous from trainer Willie Mullins’ six contenders in the richly-endowed prize over an extended two […]

Smith so proud of ‘champion’ Alcohol Free

As perfectly illustrated by Euro 2020 and the Olympics, sport moves in cycles. Injury might preclude one from team selection, a below-par showing might deny one of a medal, but often, all in good time, the opportunity is presented again somewhere along the line. Only in the sport of horse racing, however, can one man […]

Illustrating is Lowther-bound

Illustrating will reach for the stars in the Lowther Stakes at York after a commanding performance to take out the British Stallion Studs Alice Keppel EBF Fillies’ Conditions Stakes for Karl Burke and owners Clipper Logistics at Goodwood. The Showcasing filly is targeting that Group Two on the Knavesmire after outclassing her foes under Danny […]

Armor plated success for Hannon in Molecomb

Armor fairly bolted up in the Markel Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood and turned Royal Ascot form on its head. Richard Hannon’s youngster had finished fifth behind Chipotle in the Windsor Castle Stakes in June, where Boonie was third. Drawn against the fence, Ryan Moore could not have wished for a smoother run through the race. […]

Last Empire digs in for Oak Tree success

Last Empire proved her stamina with a gutsy success in the Whispering Angel Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood. Running over seven furlongs for the first time in the Group Three, Kevin Ryan’s mare was handy throughout before seeing off the late challenge of Onassis. It was another northern raider, in John Quinn’s prolific winner Highfield […]

Fanshawe has confidence in adaptable Audarya

James Fanshawe is confident Audarya can handle testing conditions as she seeks her third Group One victory in the Qatar Nassau Stakes at Goodwood. A Monday night storm saw the ground turn predominately heavy for the opening day of the Glorious fixture, but it improved to soft, good to soft in places by Wednesday morning, […]

Nagano makes no mistake at Goodwood

Nagano was vindicated after a luckless run at Ascot last time out as he claimed victory in the Unibet “15 To Go” Handicap at Gooodwood. The three-year-old travelled from the rear of the field to take on 100-30 favourite Siskany, who was reeled in at the half-furlong marker and eventually beaten by three-quarters of a […]

York return ‘still an option’ for Mohaafeth

Next month’s Juddmonte International at York remains a possible option for Mohaafeth, despite his eclipse on the Knavesmire last weekend. The three-year-old was sent off the 4-5 favourite for Saturday’s Group Two York Stakes but had to settle for a fast-finishing third, beaten half a length by the surprise winner Bangkok after sitting in last […]
