Qatar Stewards' Cup
Heritage Handicap, Goodwood 15:35
£250,000 added,
3yo plus, 6f, Class 2   
Saturday 5th August 2017

Ante-post favourite Projection (Roger Charlton, 9st 6lb), third in the Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot on his latest start, headlines the 124 acceptors for the £250,000 Qatar Stewards' Cup over six furlongs on Saturday, August 5.

Projection
The four-year-old son of Acclamation competed in the consolation £75,000 Qatar Stewards' Sprint Handicap at the Qatar Goodwood Festival in 2016 and came home a close fifth when denied a clear run in the closing stages.  
 
Also prominent in the ante-post betting market are Godolphin's progressive four-year-old Culturati (9st 2lb, Charlie Appleby), winner of his last three starts, and Raucous (9st 5lb, William Haggas), who was eighth in the Wokingham Handicap after a troubled passage through the race. 
 
Alex Smith, representing both the Royal Ascot Racing Club and Raucous's owners, Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's Melbourne syndicate, commented: "The Qatar Stewards' Cup is a live option for both Projection and Raucous. Both have come out of Royal Ascot very well.
 
"At Royal Ascot, they were both drawn on the wrong side but ran very well. Raucous got shuffled back which left him with a lot to do, while Projection was bang there and couldn't have done any more. If Projection had been drawn on the other side of the track, he must have gone very close.

"The Qatar Stewards' Cup is very much a target we are looking towards with both horses."

Mick Appleby expects Danzeno to make his presence felt on his step back up in trip.

The six-year-old gelding gained his first win since landing a conditions race at Musselburgh in September 2015 when defying top weight over the minimum trip at Ascot on Saturday.

Plans are now in place to return the Group Three-winning sprinter to six furlongs for the heritage handicap on August 5, for which he is as short as 10-1. 

Appleby said: "He ran very well in the Wokingham and I started thinking we would go straight for the Stewards' Cup, but I saw this race and said to the owner it would be a good race to go for.

"He was carrying a big weight on Saturday, but that was never a concern as he is a big horse. Once he hit the front it was never in doubt. It all panned out well.

"He was a Group horse running in a handicap off a good mark. It was good to get his head back in front and hopefully that will put him right for the Stewards' Cup.

The remarkable Hoof It (9st 1lb, Mick Easterby), now a 10-year-old, won the Qatar Stewards' Cup under top-weight back in 2011 and recorded another memorable triumph in 2016 when taking the Qatar Stewards' Sprint Handicap. He has yet to start in 2017.
