G2 Qatar Lillie Langtry S.

After the rain missed Saturday's fast-ground G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S., Goodwood had an abundance of it in the interim to ensure that things fell in the favour of the re-routed Wonderful Tonight (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}) ahead of Saturday's G2 Qatar Lillie Langtry S.

Easy Lillie Langtry Repeat For Enbihaar

With Manuela de Vega (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) ruled out of Saturday's G2 Qatar Lillie Langtry S. at Goodwood, the way was paved for last year's winner Enbihaar (Ire) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}) to enjoy a saunter around the Downs and she duly delivered with the minimum of fuss against two rivals. Last seen finishing fourth in the 12-furlong G2 Princess of Wales's S. on her seasonal bow at Newmarket July 9, Shadwell's 1-2 favourite stayed close to the 3-year-old Snow (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) throughout the early stages and once...
