STEWARDS’ CUP BUILD UP
Just 20 minutes until the big one of the day at Goodwood. Here are the thoughts of some of the big players…
William Haggas, Nahaarr
“I think fast ground will suit him, and he’s a progressive horse. He’s gone up a lot for winning at Newbury (7lb) – but hopefully he is improving, and a lot of horses in the race are running off high marks.”
Charlie Johnston, Meraas
“He’s a progressive horse, and the only blot on his copybook was the race at Newmarket.
“He bounced back to win at Hamilton, which is not dissimilar to Goodwood. I think the fast ground will be ideal for him, and we’re looking forward to it. We hope he’s a Group-class sprinter in the making.”
David O’Meara, Summerghand & Gulliver
“Both horses are in good form, and there hasn’t been much between them for a few years – they’re very similar in terms of ability.
“The pair of them have plenty of weight, and there’s always a chance you’ll come up against something better handicapped, but they’re both in good order.”
