Toormore trained by Richard Hannon won the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood yesterday, making all under a good ride from James Doyle the pair were never headed and landed the valuable prize.
My fancy in the race Dutch Connection was 2nd, outpaced at halfway before staying on strongly beaten ¾ of a length, another 100 yards the result might have been different. A return to a mile can see Dutch Connection get his head in front, the Breeders Cup Mile is a reported target.
Day of the handicaps at Goodwood today and I’m leaving it well alone, however over at Sandown this evening Decorated Knight “11-8” should go well. The horse is held in high regard by the yard and could have been let in lightly on handicap debut, Pyjama Party is the obvious danger.
Shock horror no winners for Dermot Weld at Galway on Tuesday, with 4 runners today and three of them short prices Mr Weld will be looking to get back in the winners enclosure.
