Sectional Debrief: Sussex Stakes and day two of Glorious Goodwood
Simon Rowlands analyses the sectional times from Wednesday's action at Glorious Goodwood, including the Sussex Stakes, and picks out the notable performances on the clock.
Whether or not it really was a “Duel On The Downs”, today’s Qatar-sponsored Sussex Stakes at Goodwood constituted a “Jewel On The Downs”: it was a race that was high-class and gripping from start to finish.
A “duel” is meant to involve just two protagonists, and that is how this contest was billed, with the one-two from the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot – Galileo Gold and The Gurkha – crossing swords again. But a third protagonist in Ribchester nearly stole the show and could be the one above all others to take out of the contest.
