No complaints with RIP VAN WINKLE ran good race in second and looked the likely winner 1 furlong out traded 1-8 in running on betfair ,though was unable to concede 8LB to CANFORD CLIFFS who won shade cleverly in the end.THEBES had no excuses simply not good enough on the day.
On to day three at Glorious Goodwood ,the group two 5F King George stakes & 2 mile Goodwood cup being the feature races.
14F FILLIES&MARES GROUP 3 GOODWOOD 4.00

16F GOODWOOD CUP GROUP 2 GOODWOOD 3.25
