Holy Roman Emperor's Jadoomi Notches Goodwood Triumph

Coming back off an extended sabbatical, 2020's G1 Criterium International third Jadoomi (Fr) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}--South Sister {GB}, by Sakhee) registered a stakes breakthrough in last month's Listed Prix du Pays d'Auge at Clairefontaine when turning up for just his second outing in almost two years and continued on a rapid upward trajectory with victory in Saturday's G2 William Hill Celebration Mile at Goodwood. The 10-3 chance recovered from an early stumble and shadowed the pace in second for the most part. Scrubbed along to reduce arrears approaching the...

Territories's Hoo Ya Mal Snags Career-High Win At Goodwood

Acquired by connections for £1.2-million at Goffs' London sale in June, former Andrew Balding-trained G1 Derby runner-up Hoo Ya Mal (GB) (Territories {Ire}--Sensationally {GB}, by Montjeu {Ire}) celebrated a first victory in six starts since annexing York's Convivial Maiden last term with an impressive tally for trainer George Boughey in Saturday's G3 William Hill March S., staged in memory of John Dunlop, at Goodwood.

Dubawi's Fairy Cross Makes All For Prestige Triumph

Goldophin's homebred 2-year-old filly Fairy Cross (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}--Devonshire {Ire}, by Fast Company {Ire}), who ran second in last month's Listed Star S. at Sandown, employed enterprising tactics in Saturday's G3 William Hill Prestige S. at Goodwood and was rewarded with a career high in the seven-furlong fillies' test. The 2-1 favourite was swiftly into stride and held sway from the outset. Shaken up when threatened at the quarter-mile marker, she poached a decisive advantage approaching the final furlong and was ridden out to hold Breege (GB) (Starspangledbanner {Aus}) and...

Dubawi's Rebel's Romance Too Good For Glorious Rivals

Back on song in Newmarket's Listed Fred Archer S. last month, last term's G2 UAE Derby hero Rebel's Romance (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}--Minidress {GB}, by Street Cry {Ire}) continued his winning thread, and that of man-of-the-moment William Buick, with a game victory going two yards shy of 12 furlongs in Friday's G3 L'Ormarins Queen's Plate Glorious S. at Goodwood. The Charlie Appleby-trained 4-5 favourite was steadied to race just off the tempo in fourth initially and slipped to fifth at halfway. Nudged along to reduce arrears with a half-mile remaining, he...

Dark Angel's Khaadem Powers To King George Glory

Charles Hills dominated Goodwood's G2 King George Qatar S. with the now-retired Battaash (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) from 2017 through 2020 and has found another son of Dark Angel to claim glory in the five-furlong charge after G3 Palace House S. victor Khaadem (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}--White Daffodil {Ire}, by Footstepsinthesand {GB}) blew his rivals away and provided the trainer with a record-breaking fifth renewal on Friday. Fitri Hay's 6-year-old gelding had already tasted glory at this meeting, having annexed 2019's Stewards' Cup H. as a 3-year-old, and burst clear...

Time Test's Rocchigiani Battles To G3 Thoroughbred Triumph

Goodwood may not have attracted as big an international contingent as last month's Royal Ascot festival, but Thursday's G3 Bonhams Thoroughbred S. was very much a continental affair as Germany's G2 Mehl-Mulhens-Rennen (German 2000 Guineas) second Rocchigiani (GB) (Time Test {GB}--Ronja, by El Corredor) showed his class to garner the 3-year-old one-mile test. Last term's G3 Zukunftsrennen victor, who ran fifth in the Royal meet's June 18 G3 Jersey S. last time, was positioned in second as Norway's Norsk 2000 Guineas hero Hotline Bling (Ire) (Cotai Glory {GB}) established a...

Dubawi's New London Battles To Gordon Success

Godolphin's highly regarded 3-year-old colt New London (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}--Bright Beacon {GB}, by Manduro {Ger}) bounced back from a first reversal in May's G3 Chester Vase to annex a 10-furlong Newmarket handicap last time and continued on an upward trajectory with victory in Thursday's G3 John Pearce Racing Gordon S at Goodwood. The 6-4 favourite, who had garnered 10-furlong tests at Newmarket last October and in April on seasonal return, settled off the tempo in sixth until inching closer in the straight. Coming under pressure with three furlongs remaining, he...

Royal Scotsman Scoots To Richmond Triumph

Fitri Hay's Royal Scotsman (GB) (Gleneagles {Ire}--Enrol {GB}, by Pivotal {GB}) finished a close up third in Royal Ascot's G2 Coventry S. and justified odds-on favouritism with a snug victory over the same six-furlong trip in Thursday's G2 Richmond S. at Goodwood. Fourth behind the 'TDN Rising Star' display of Noble Style (GB) (Kingman {GB}) contesting a hot novice heat over five furlongs at Ascot in his May 7 debut, he graduated by five lengths over this course and distance 13 days later before his black-type debut in the Coventry...

Baaeed Powers To Impressive Sussex Triumph

It takes a real good one to make Goodwood's G1 Qatar Sussex S.--a "Win And You're In" for the GI Breeders' Cup Mile--look like a piece of strong work, but then all who assembled on the Downs on Wednesday have come to expect nothing less by now from Shadwell's stellar miler Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}). Like the champions Rock of Gibraltar (Ire) and Frankel (GB), who stopped off here as they devoured group 1s, the peerless homebred is almost running his own virtual reality race against them by...

No Nay Never's Trillium On Top In The Molecomb

Rockcliffe Stud's 2-year-old filly Trillium (GB) (No Nay Never--Marsh Hawk {GB}, by Invincible Spirit {Ire}) was the lone distaffer in Wednesday's G3 Markel Molecomb S. at Goodwood and took full advantage of her gender allowance to deny Listed Dragon S. victor Rocket Rodney (GB) (Dandy Man {Ire}) in the five-furlong dash. She had opened up with a June 17 debut second tackling six furlongs at the Sussex venue and was let go at a generous 7-1 coming back off a four-length tally, again over six, at Newbury earlier this month....

Galileo Gold's Oscula Pounces Late For Oak Tree Triumph

Making her fourth start of the month, Nick Bradley Racing's battle-hardened bargain buy Oscula (Ire) (Galileo Gold {GB}--Bisous Y Besos {Ire}, by Big Bad Bob {Ire}) went postward for Wednesday's G3 Whispering Angel Oak Tree S. at Goodwood coming back off a narrow defeat in Ascot's July 23 G3 Valiant S. and pounced late to secure a second pattern-race success in the seven-furlong distaffers' test. Last year's G3 Prix Six Perfections victrix and G1 Prix Marcel Boussac third snagged June's Listed Eternal S. at Carlisle before hitting the board in...
