Limato potentially dropping down in grade in Lennox

There are 35 entries for the £300,000 G2 Qatar Lennox Stakes over seven furlongs on Tuesday, August 1.

Aidan O'Brien is responsible for five contenders with Spirit Of Valor, second in the G3 Jersey Stakes, still in contention. 

In another huge boost to the Qatar Goodwood Festival's burgeoning international profile, three-year-old Bound For Nowhere, fourth in the six-furlong G1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot last week, could be a first Goodwood runner for US trainer Wesley Ward.
 
Godolphin has taken the last two renewals of the Qatar Lennox Stakes with Toormore (2015) and the Charlie Hills-trained Dutch Connection (2016), who could bid to become only the second dual winner of the race after Nayyir, successful in 2002 and 2003.

Al Jazi
Al Jazi (Francois Rohaut FR) has winning form at Goodwood's premier meeting already. The four-year-old Canford Cliffs filly, owned by Al Shaqab Racing, landed the seven-furlong G3 L'Ormarins Queens Plate Stakes at the Qatar Goodwood Festival in 2016. 
 
She has made two appearances so far in 2017, winning on her return in a Listed contest at Maisons-Laffitte in April before finishing ninth, beaten five lengths, in the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes over six furlongs at Royal Ascot on June 24. 
 
Rohaut commented: "The plan is to bring Al Jazi back to Goodwood for the Qatar Goodwood Festival. She won well there last year, so we have entered her in the Qatar Lennox Stakes and will also enter her again in the L'Ormarins Queens Plate Stakes.
 
"She ran well at Royal Ascot. The trip was a bit sharp for her and she will enjoy stepping back up to seven furlongs.
 
"She is programmed to go to Goodwood now. She has come out of Royal Ascot in good form and looks well. I am very happy with her."
 
Librisa Breeze (Dean Ivory) may step up in trip after finishing fourth in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
