Our gallops reporter has been at Sir Michael Stoute's yard to watch the talked-about Estimate warm up for Glorious Goodwood.
Racing's most talked about horse ESTIMATE was very much in the spotlight when she worked on the Limekilns round gallop this morning.
Having tested positive for morphine due to what is believed to be a contaminated feed supply, last season's Gold Cup winner covered nine furlongs with SNOW SKY and TOP TUG. All three could be part of Sir Michael Stoute's Goodwood team next week.
Gordon Stakes-bound Snow Sky led the trio and as the jockeys got into the drive, he held Top Tug (Ryan Moore) by half a length, with the same distance back to Estimate.
Estimate is in the frame for the Goodwood Cup, having finished second in the Gold Cup before giving her positive sample.
KING'S FETE did well to win at York after taking a keen grip throughout. He's taken those exertions well, and looked in good order moving with EYE CONTACT and PAS DE CHEVAL.
FREEMASON and GHAAWY were the next pair up, with Freemason just holding the call.
FESTIVAL THEATRE came up with ROCKET SHIP, while RUSSIAN REALM enjoyed himself in a solo spin, as did ARAB SPRING.
Several juveniles were in action. The Queen's DARTMOUTH is an attractive son of Dubawi and he looked in good order getting home in front of REFERENDUM and CAPEL PATH.PANDA SPIRIT runs at Newmarket on Friday and she went well with two colts, ZIGAYANI and MUKHAYYAM.
