Exciting Toormore Takes Vintage Stakes
1 Toormore 5/4F
Toormore, described by Richard Hughes as 'one of the nicest two-year-olds in the yard', continued the tremendous Goodwood record of the rider and trainer Richard Hannon. In the Veuve Cliquot Vintage Stakes, the son of Arakan gave Hughes his third winner of Glorious week, and Hannon his fourth.
Hughes swooped typically late to take the seven-furlong Group Two contest by a neck from fellow previous maiden winner Outstrip, with Coventry Stakes runner-up Parbold a length and a half third.
Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes (Group 2)
Outstrip just failed to outstrip all when he went down by a neck to Toormore in the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes, though connections were far from disappointed with the the home bred's display.
This was only Outstrip's second run, his first being a impressive maiden win at Newmarket in June, and Simon Crisford, racing Manager for Godolphin, the Exceed And Excel colt's owners, commented: "He's run a super race and looked like winning every-where but the line. He's a nice colt. Seven furlongs next time - we will keep him to that trip.
"He showed a really good turn of foot when Mickael (Barzalona, jockey) asked him to go, the winner just came past us at the line but our colt is good. He will run in races like the Group Two Champagne Stakes at Doncaster - those are his long term targets."
Mickael Barzalona, jockey of Outstrip, added: "He ran very well."
