Shakerattlenroll is fancied to recoup
recent losses in the sixteen-runner 2-y-
o Maiden Stakes over six furlongs of good
to soft Windsor tonight when retiring
champion jockey Richard Hughes has
rides in all seven races.
Hughesy has been a standing dish at
the Thames-side course for more than a
decade, partnering steering jobs supplied
by his father-in-law Richard Hannon who
handed the license to namesake son last
This time next week Hughes will himself
be a licensed trainer, Pat Dobbs and Sean
Levey will ride for the racing family Han-
non , which has specialised with juveniles
so successfully; all good things come to
an end but the show goes on, hopefully
Paul Cole-trained Shakerattlenroll achieves
his debut time-handicap mark under Cam
Hardie, apprenticed to Hannon!
Shake was a promising third at Brighton
and then attempted to make all from the
worst draw (12!) at Wolverhampton over
seven furlongs; you can t do it at both
ends is a well-known saying and sure
enough Shakerattlenroll capitulated down
the straight, finishing an ignominious sixth,
beaten eight lengths.
Dropped back in distance and drawn
much better Shakerattlenroll justifies each-
way support and a speculative nap selec-
tion because the price will be right.
Once-raced Mont Kiara is a steal in
the 2-y-o Maiden Stakes over five furlongs
of Southwell fibresand, if able to cope with
the dreaded deep stuff!
Trainer Kevin Ryan will know, you can
bet he ll have transported to Mont Kiara
to the Nottinghamshire venue for a spin
round and it s just a question of Jamie
Spencer doing the biz aboard this
well-regarded French-bred colt; they
were a close second to Husbandry in a
fast-run race at York sixteen days ago. A
Nine go to post for the nursery handicap
over the same course and distance, Scott
Dixon-trained Misu Moneypenny won her
only start over it ten weeks ago and there
isn t a better system for nurseries; hand-
icappers haven t a clue how to assess once-
raced winning juveniles.
Gutaifan takes Papin honours
Richard Hannon and Frankie Dettori combined
for big-race success in France as Gutaifan claimed
top honours in a British-dominated finish to the
Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte.
The Al Shaqab Racing-owned juvenile went for
the Group Two contest on the back of victories in
his last two starts at Salisbury and Chester
Dettori rode a positive race down the centre of
the track, with William Haggas' York scorer Ajaya
also prominently ridden in the hands of Christophe
Soumillon against the rail.
The pair kicked clear entering the closing stages
of the five-and-a-half-furlong heat and after a
thrilling duel, it was Gutaifan who passed the post
a head to the good to give Hannon a second
successive victory in this race after Kool Kompany
12 months ago.
The third British challenger in the field was
Kevin Ryan's Areen, runner-up in the Windsor
Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot.
The Kodiac colt disappointed on his most recent
start in Newmarket's July Stakes, but finished off
this race strongly to grab minor honours in third, a
further two lengths away.
The previously unbeaten Venecia Style was the
5/2 favourite and fared best of the home runners
in fourth place.
Mondialiste nets Pomfret prize
Mondialiste put up an admirable display when
making all the running in the Skybet Supporting
The Yorkshire Racing Summer Festival Pomfret
Stakes at Pontefract.
The David O'Meara-trained five-year-old kept on
strongly for Danny Tudhope to lift this Listed race
over a mile in tremendous style.
It was a first win for the entire since being
bought out of Freddy Head's stable for 190,000
euros last July.
He had gone close to getting off the mark at the
first attempt for his new connections when just
beaten a neck in the Lincoln at Doncaster in March
and was not disgraced in three subsequent starts.
The well-backed 5/2 shot showed his mettle in
the West Yorkshire rain as he powered to a 10-
length victory over Short Squeeze, who edged out
the winner's stable companion Birdman to claim
Connections might now consider the Group
Three Investec Pension Consultants Desmond
Stakes at Leopardstown on August 13.
Owner Geoff Turnbull said: "We all talked it
through and felt this was the right race for him.
"We'll keep our powder dry but we could go over
to Ireland in a few weeks' time."
Tudhope, who has only recently returned from
injury, said: "He's a nice horse. We like him quite a
"He's been running in good races and we always
thought he could win a Listed race.
"He's been freshened up, and that has done him
"We've been waiting for this soft ground and
there should be plenty of other good races for
O' Brien plots Goodwood raid
Aidan O'Brien will rely upon Air Vice Marshal to
give him back-to-back victories in the Qatar
Vintage Stakes at Goodwood tomorrow.
The Ballydoyle trainer won the Group Two for
the first time last year with Highland Reel and
goes for a repeat with the War Front colt.
He gets the chance to reverse Superlative
Stakes form with Birchwood, who beat Air Vice
Marshal by a length in the Newmarket Group Two
earlier this month.
Birchwood, trained by Richard Fahey, is one of
two Godolphin-owned runners along with Strong
Challenge. Saeed bin Suroor's charge opened his
account over six furlongs on this course eight
Mark Johnston is double-handed with
Beaverbrook and Welford, while others in a nine-
runner line-up are Galileo Gold, Ibn Malik, Palawan
and Twin Sails.
PJ McDonald grabbed the
riding honours at Carlisle with
a near 79/1 treble.
The former jump jockey, who
won the Scottish Grand
National on Hot Weld in 2007,
took the feature Ultimate
Ladies Night Here 3rd August
Handicap aboard More Mis-
chief for trainer Jedd O Keeffe.
The 6/4 favourite was never
far off the pace and led over a
furlong out before going on to
defeat Corton Lad by a neck.
It was the three-year-old s
third win from just five
"We probably got a little bit
lucky in that we got sufficient
rain in time for us to be able
to run," said the North York-
"It was touch and go leading
up to the race whether we d let
her take her chance but it
became safe and we got away
"She s gradually progressing.
I think she s got more to learn.
She stays well and appreciates
give in the ground.
"We haven t got any fancy
plans for her. We ll keep her to
"The owner (Paul Chapman)
is planning to breed from her
for himself so at some point,
whether it be this year or next,
we might make an entry in a
Listed race and see if she can
sneak some black type, but
she s probably got some way
to go before then."
Corton Lad s rider Phillip
Makin was banned for two days
(August 9 and 10) for using his
whip above the permitted level.
McDonald s other winners
came for trainer Ann Duffield
in the two juvenile events on
Silhuette (15/2) turned over
the 4/6 favourite Donjuan Tri-
umphant by a neck to make a
winning debut in the
bookies.com Maiden Auction
"We ve always liked her. We
took our time with her because
she s a tall, scopey girl and is
from a very good, very fast
family," said Duffield.
"We thought she d run well
today and we re delighted with
"Things didn t pan out per-
fectly but she stuck her neck
out and won very well."
Encantar (11/4 favourite) col-
lared Bochart close home to
also score by a neck in the
Lloyds Motor Group Nursery.
Duffield said: "She s probably
a better filly in a better race
because she needs cover and
didn t get any. She made it look
initially like hard work but I
think she won with a bit in
"Hopefully both horses will
go on to better things."
Trainer Richard Fahey and
jockey Tony Hamilton enjoyed
a double, with Pamushana (4/7
favourite) landing the Evening
Racing Here 24th August

ning trail in the Racing UK
