Allegretto Brings Ryan Moore Triple Glory

1st 1 Allegretto 8/1
2nd 15 Veracity 10/1
3rd 8 Finalmente 16/1

Jockey Ryan Moore made it three wins from three rides today after completing a 395/1 treble when landing the feature ABN AMRO Goodwood Cup aboard the Cheveley Park Stud-owned filly Allegretto.



Moore waited patiently before asking his mount for her effort close to home, prevailing by half a length from Veracity.

“She’s a tough, game filly,” said Cheveley Park Stud’s managing director Chris Richardson. “We put a visor on to wake her up at Sandown when she won the Henry II Stakes but at Ascot last time I don’t think she stayed but she just pulled the bit and didn’t let go.

“After Ascot we thought that if she could come here and win that would be her swansong - she’d have won two Group 2s and could come back to the stud.

“There’s nothing of her but she has a fantastic pedigree and is a lovely mare for the future.”

Moore added: “They went a good pace and she’s very honest - she got stuck in and is so game. She stayed well and the stronger pace suited her.

“I was a bit further back than I’d planned because they went very fast but she switched off and I gave her a chance to come good and she made good headway in the straight.

“I came wide because the horses on the inside were dying, that’s just the way the race panned out.

“She was very lazy last year and we put the visor on, but she’s not been like that this year - she has really progressed from three to four. I think the visor probably buzzed her up too much ar Ascot.

“It’s my first treble at Glorious Goodwood and to ride the winner of any race here is nice but three in a day is great.

“I’ve been getting good rides and riding for people like Sir Michael Stoute and Richard Hannon I should be riding winners, shouldn’t I? But winning the championship is not possible this year but I’d like to get to 100 winners.”

Coral Pritchard-Gordon, partner of winning trainer Sir Michael Stoute, added: “She’s done it really nicely when she was asked to quicken and Ryan has given her such a relaxed ride.”


Veracity, the only three-year-old in today’s ABN AMRO Goodwood Cup, beat all bar one rival in his bid for victory. His rider Philip Robinson put up 1lb overweight.

Allegretto proved half a length too good, but Veracity did not let his connections down, fighting right to the line and holding third-placed Finalmente by three-quarters of a length.

Michael Jarvis, who trains the runner-up for Sheikh Mohammed, said: “He’s a dour stayer. We are delighted with him.

“It’s a tough race for three-year-olds and not too many run it - although they used to. I wanted to run this horse in the Ebor, but even though he’s on a mark of 95 he probably wouldn’t get in, so we ran here instead.

“With Sheikh Mohammed’s agreement he’ll now run in the St Leger [sponsored by Ladbrokes]. It’s a shorter trip, but Doncaster has a long straight so the track should suit him. He’s improving all the time and has come on since Ascot.”

Veracity was given a 16-1 quote for the St Leger by the sponsors, while Paddy Power offer 14-1.

Neville Callaghan is now eyeing the Doncaster Cup for Finalmente, who today wore cheekpieces for the first time. Callaghan said: “Had the race been over two and a quarter miles it would have suited us better, because he stays so well.

“He’s run a great race - fourth in the Gold Cup and now third here is very good. He wore cheekpieces, not because he’s ungenuine, but we felt we might have to be in front from a long way out. He’s as genuine as the day is long.”


Geordieland, the 6/4 favourite for the ABN AMRO Goodwood Cup, came with a good run in the straight only to find no extra from a furlong and a half out.

He finished fifth and his trainer Jamie Osborne commented: “I am very disappointed. Jamie (Spencer) said Geordieland was a bit keen through the race.

“The horse relaxed better at Ascot - and I don’t think he ever really found a rhythm and relaxed here properly and he paid for it in the last furlong.”


Distinction, the 2005 winner and off the course for over a year, raced prominently until fading to finish seventh.

His rider Jimmy Fortune commented: “He has run a nice race - they probably went a bit steady for him. He had every chance two and a half furlongs out and just got tired.”

Coral Pritchard-Gordon, trainer Sir Michael Stoute’s partner, added: “We were thrilled with him because he seems to have shown his old sparkle but just got tired which you would expect on this ground.”
