Grandeur: Easy winner
Brown Panther was out of luck as Grandeur ran out the impressive winner of the Listed Greene King Foundation Stakes at Goodwood.
The Tom Dascombe-trained five-year-old, who had won on both of his starts this season, was using this race as a prep run ahead of his trip to Australia and he led the field a merry dance in the early stages, going three lengths clear as they entered the home straight.
He was still there fighting with two furlongs to go but his stride began to shorten as he came back to the field and Making Eyes joined him for the lead.
It was all change in the final furlong as Grandeur came with a withering run on the outside to put the race to bed, eventually recording a length and a quarter success.
It was the 6/4 favourite's first victory since winning the Grade 2 Twilight Derby at Santa Anita in November 2012 though he had run well in defeat on a couple of occasions this season, including when second in the Group 2 York Stakes on the Knavesmire in July.
Grandeur's trainer Jeremy Noseda was delighted with the way his horse won but revealed he was thinking about taking him out of the race.
"I was worried about ground today as he's a fast ground horse and I didn't think conditions would suit him," said Noseda.
"After watching the first couple of races, I was contemplating whether or not to run him but he was the best horse in race and I thought maybe we'd get away with it.
"He likes turning tracks and that's why I took him to America last year. I knew the track would suit him well as he's won here before.
"The draw wasn't ideal in the Arlington Million and he came back quite sore after race. I was concerned that he'd hurt himself but we managed to sort that out quickly and he was able to run today. I've just drawn a line through Chicago as it wasn't his running.
"I've got a few things in my mind for him now and I'll sit down with owner and have a chat later on this week. We could have crack at the Breeders Cup Turf or maybe take in something easier but we'll have a good look.
"He loves America, that's where he is at his best."
Dascombe was pleased enough with Brown Panther's performance which he hopes will put him spot on for a trip to Melbourne.
"I'm pleased enough with him," said the trainer.
"Grandeur's a good horse in his own right and we had to give him 5lb. In hindsight, we probably went a bit too quick up front and he didn't quite get home.
"We were trying to win obviously but it was more about making sure he was alright. Richard (Kingscote) wasn't too hard on him and I'm sure he'll be fine and go to Melbourne.
"He hasn't had a run for six weeks and we really needed to get a run into him before he heads into quarantine. As long as he's fine after this, he'll head to Australia."
