Gallops Report
Lambourn, August 1
Select a Gallops Report date:

DAYLIGHT beautifully up the main all-weather at Kingsclere and looks in peak form for what will be his second Goodwood outing of the week in the 32Red Cup consolation race.

Andrew Balding's charge found five furlongs on this sharp track an inadequate test and was doing all his best work at the finish, suggesting six furlongs will be right up his street.

He will need the rub of the green at the business end, but could hardly be in better form.

SMILING STRANGER for a valuable handicap at Goodwood and this strong stayer is in good heart as he steps into a different racing sphere.

He should easily see out the mile and a half and will be pressing on when some of the others have cried enough.

INTRANSIGENT been a regular visitor to Chester and ran well in a Listed race there last time.

He returns to the Roodeye this weekend and looked razor sharp in his winding-up breeze.

DANCE OF FIRE a promising debut. Having progressed from that, this well-regarded individual can be noted for a prominent showing in a maiden.

GUIDING LIGHT the Goodwood nursery, in which his form stamps him as a contender.

He has looked good in his work since scoring on his second career start, and is learning all the time.

Lambourn, July 31

SHIFTING POWER one of Richard Hannon's best chances of Goodwood success and the colt really took the eye grabbing the ground in his final piece of stronger work ahead of tomorrow's assignment.

The progressive colt went down narrowly in a Group One at Chantilly in which he looked a shade unlucky as he was eventually promoted to second.

He was momentarily outpaced when the tempo quickened, as it often does in France, but rallied strongly and was closing the gap all the way to the line. In what amounts to a drop in grade, Shifting Power should be able to get back to winning ways.

PETHER'S MOON be looking to notch back-to-back Goodwood successes when contesting the Group Three Glorious Stakes.

He was amongst a handful of Hannon winners at the corresponding fixture 12 months ago and looks just as good as ever. H always been a willing worker, and his recent form has indicated he can gain a deserved first success of the year.

MAGIC CITY life as a sprinter but now finds a longer trip more appropriate. He looked in good order breezing ahead of the Betfred Mile.

SUNSET SAIL acquit himself well in the nursery. The clear-cut Windsor scorer has been in very good form at home.

INDIGNANT MANDERLEY Hannon a twin spearhead to fire at the Oak Tree Stakes. Both these fillies looked in good order in their respective breezes.

WAR SPIRIT been a fine servant to the stable and this three-times winner could hardly be in better form ahead of a handicap at the weekend.

Several juveniles caught the eye and especially

LETHAL LEGACY the judge on his debut, and appears to have improved a fair way for that.

Newmarket, July 30

HILLSTAR an interesting runner for Sir Michael Stoute at Goodwood later in the week and he tripped the light fantastic working on the Trial Ground this morning.

Having been taught to settle in each of his last two starts at Royal Ascot and Newmarket, the colt looked in good order coming up the strip with

RYE HOUSE some juice in the ground and is all dressed up with nowhere to go. However, this talented individual looked on good terms with himself striding out in a solo spin.

Next up was FESTIVAL THEATRE looking a lot more chilled out - and he moved nicely with Bath-bound

FREEMASON along in company with

ENOBLED another solo worker on the Trial Ground and is also waiting for easier underfoot conditions.

After the change over, RUSSIAN HEROINE with MOONLIGHT SONATA

Russian Heroine quickened up best from the four and a half to the six to hold the call by a length from the promising Moonlight Sonata.

ESTIMATE ahead of the Goodwood Cup and looks in the same sort of form as that she showed ahead of her Gold Cup run.

Lambourn, July 29

TORONADO it be known that he will not relinquish his Sussex Stakes crown easily by displaying all his panache in his winding-up gallop.

Richard Hannon's charge is described as 'a machine' by those closest to him and he was in imperious form stretching willingly clear of his lead horses.

The four-year-old is thought to have needed his comeback success in the Queen Anne Stakes and this performance fully backs that up.

WINDSHEAR that several races haven't taken the edge off him with a similarly impressive workout. He looks in good order for the Gordon Stakes, a race that should tilt his radar towards the St Leger.

HEDGE END up the strip in a readying breeze and he looks in good form ahead of his race tomorrow.

DR NO TUPI Hannon in the Vintage Stakes, a race the stable has won for the past four years. Dr No has done especially well and should not be underestimated.

SHAHAH the benefit of a previous outing when she lines up for the maiden.

She will be joined in the race by debutant AVENUE DU MONDE, has shown promise and breezed beautifully this morning.
