When: Wednesday 29th July 2020
Where: Goodwood Racecourse
How To Watch: ITV Racing
Qatar Sussex Stakes (Group 1) (British Champions Series)
The Sussex Stakes is typicaly one of the most competitive races of the flat season for horses aged three and over. The race is run over one mile and has played a part in creating some of the biggest legends of the sport. Among those is Frankel, who remains the only horse to have won this race on two occasions. Recent winners of this race includes Too Darn Hot and Lightning Spear.
Siskin will lead the betting going into this year’s instalment, as the three-year-old has won on all five previous runs. The G M Lyons-trained phenomenon was in dominant form last time out as he won the 2,000 Irish Guineas at Curragh. The one doubt that could be hanging over this horse is his lack of experience at Goodwood.
Kameko will also attract attention having won two of his previous three starts, which included success in the 2,000 Guineas in June. However, the preference would be for Mohaather, who is trained by Marcus Tregoning. This four-year-old won the Watership Down Stud Greenham Stakes last year, and has shown glimpses of his very best again this year. He most recently had success in the Betfred Summer Mile Stakes, where he held off San Donato and Duke Of Hazzard to win.
Markel Insurance Molecomb Stakes (Group 3)
|Chief Little Hawk||+600|
|Army Of India||+650|
|Wings Of A Dove||+1000|
One of the most competitive races on the second day of the festival will be the Markel Insurance Molecomb Stakes. There is a wide open field for this event, and any of the horses seen above could have a realistic chance of claiming success. This race is open to horses aged two, and is run over five furlongs. Horses that have won this race over recent years include Liberty Beach, Havana Grey and Yalta.
Significantly will lead the field in the betting for the race this year for K R Burke. However, there will be doubts for gamblers as this horse is yet to win in three starts. Sardinia Sunset may be a more popular suggestion, as the two-year-old won last time out at York in the EBF Marygate Fillies’ Stakes. However, the preference would be for Army Of India. He has been in progressive form all season and has won on two from three starts. The most recent of those came in the Betway British Stallion Studs Stakes at Lingfield.
