Son Of The Cat landed the opening Stewards' Sprint Handicap at Glorious Goodwood on Saturday.

The consolation race for the day's feature went to the Brian Gubby-trained five-year-old who was drawn in stall three on the far side and made best use of the fresh strip of ground.

Franny Norton drove the 18-1 chance home by a length and three quarters from Confessional (14-1) with Valery Borzov (20-1) third.

Joseph Henry (20-1) did the best of the near side runners and finished fourth.

The well-fancied Saucy Brown finished fifth.


Winning trainer Brian Gubby said: "We were drawn three and it was felt that was the place to be. He won here as a two-year-old and is a genuine horse who deserved to win a good prize.

"We'd been heading for the Stewards' Cup but to win this consolation prize is great. I'm over the moon."

Gubby has just four horses now, but proclaimed Goodwood a lucky course for him, adding: "This fellow is rated 91 which is an awkward mark.

"I put him in a Listed race at Windsor last time and he wasn't beaten that far by Bated Breath in a race where they broke the track record."
