Jim Crowley (pictured) has enjoyed another fine week as he partnered Enbihaar to victory in the Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes on the fifth and final day of Glorious Goodwood.
After picking up wins on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday in West Sussex, Crowley landed his fourth winner of the festival on Saturday aboard Enbihaar, who made it back-to-back successes in the Lillie Langtry Stakes with a three-and-a-half-length triumph.
The 1/2 favourite had far too much for Cabaletta and Snow, who finished second and third respectively, and a step up to Grade 1 level could be an option for the Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned charge.
Speaking after the win, Thady, son and assistant of winner trainer John Gosden, revealed a trip to Doncaster to defend the Park Hill Stakes crown is likely to be next before a trip to France.
“She’s got that lovely long stride and picked up beautifully in the straight,” he was quoted as saying by Sportinglife. “A mile and a half is a little sharp for her these days and she relished the step up to a mile and six on the quick ground.
“It will be a pretty similar path to last year. We’ll probably go to the Park Hill and Doncaster and then on to the Prix de Royallieu. The ground was a bit soft for her last year.”
In the first race of the day, Harry Bentley and Treacherous combined to win the Stewards’ Sprint Handicap before the same jockey struck in the next aboard the Mark Johnston-trained Hochfeld.
Summerghand, going off at 22/1, produced a brilliant performance to win the Heritage Handicap, while Ryan Moore landed the Qatar Handicap aboard Sir Michael Stoute’s Society Lion.
The penultimate race, British European Breeders Fund Maiden Stakes, went the way of Titan Rock before Cieren Fallon produced a terrific late charge in the finale to score on Muraad in the LG Signature Apprentice Handicap.
