GREAT AMBASSADOR and Chil Chil appeal as the class play in Saturday’s Coral Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood with a narrow preference for the former who finished third 12 months ago.

These two high quality sprinters finished side by side behind Minzaal in the Group Three Hackwood Stakes at Newbury two weeks ago, but Great Ambassador gets a 6lb pull at the weights here and the nice run and distance effort of last year plus a subsequent unlucky defeat in the Ayr Gold Cup just earned him the vote.

In this race, from a disadvantageous draw to the other side, Ed Walker’s burly gelding was only steered close to home by falls Commanche and Gulliver (both of whom have questions to answer for now) inside the last furlong although it hangs left in the center.

Successful in his next two races at Newmarket and York, Great Ambassador then rode a superb race at Ayr where he clearly won the group on the other side, but only finished second overall behind Bielsa who appeared to benefit a solo on the grandstand rail. .

Third-placed Mr Wagyu is now 6 pounds worse off, and a bit more if you like the look of Saffie Osborne’s 3-pound allowance aboard the selection.

Chil Chil’s form also improved last year when Andrew Balding’s mare went from a 93 handicap in the spring to third behind Emaraaty Ana and Starman in the Group One Betfair Haydock Park Sprint Cup in September .

Promising Harry Davies sheds 5lbs off her peak weight of 9st12lb here and she looks confident to race in Newbury, her first for 10 months. The two horses are pulled alongside each other towards the center of the course from where Lord Riddiford and Get Ahead won sprints earlier in the meeting.

Earlier, the Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes was marked by bookmakers as a match between Sea La Rosa and Emily Dickinson, but ALTO can prove worth passing at a mile and three quarters.

This five-year-old mare has come a long way from a mark in the 70s two years ago and finished strong to take second behind Sea La Rosa in the Pinnacle Stakes at Haydock (1m4f) at the end of May.

Passed the last mile approach that day before rallying (and stumbling near her home), Viola seemed to be screaming further ahead and a small field the same distance away in Newmarket didn’t play to her trumps.

She’s certainly bred to stay out of a mile six winner and, with only a length and a quarter to make up on Sea La Rosa, the price difference seems disproportionate.

Additionally, Viola’s trainer, James Fanshawe, has long been revered as a trainer of fillies and mares.

The rest of the Goodwood map looks extremely difficult and there may be better chances of winning elsewhere, especially with QUEEN OF THE HIGHLANDS who is supposed to take on the British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies Nursery in Newmarket.

Tom Dascombe’s filly made an improved effort on her third Newbury start earlier in the month as she led inside the final furlong and that form was cleared by impressive winner Candle Of Hope , who started well under a penalty to Thirsk. and by third Enola Gray who ran very well to fill the same position behind Group One, entered Sparkling Beauty (a stable mate of Candle Of Hope) in what looked like a decent field at Goodwood on Thursday.

Candle Of Hope was given a handicap rating of 89 while Goodwood runner-up She’s Hot, who was only just ahead of Enola Gray, is likely an 80 filly based on her fine run in the Albanys Stakes at Royal Ascot previously.

But even if those calculations are a bit off the mark, Queen Of Uplands could still be handicapped very well here at just 73 with the real possibility of further improvement to come.

Additionally, Dascombe hit winning form from his new base at the famous Uplands yard in Upper Lambourn.

Finally, the predicted good to soft ground at Thirsk could prove ideal for WOBWOBWOB in disability William Hill Pick Your Places.

Adrian Keatley’s gelding hasn’t won since hitting a handicap in similar conditions at York early last season with a mark of 80, but ran creditably later with seven and eight pounds more and is now back to 83.

On soft ground, Wobwobwob had his best run this season at Haydock last month chasing home the potentially useful Substantial and Gweedore trained by William Haggas, who won at Ayr next time around, despite being forced to cut the rail at an important stage.

Jamie Spencer looks like a good booking for the four-year-old who moved into a six-stadium nursery in Thirsk two years ago.
