Palin: “Toormore looks a million dollars”

Toormore is reported to be "back to his best" as he aims to bounce back to form in the bet365 Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on Tuesday. Richard Hannon's colt ended an unbeaten juvenile season as champion two-year-old after clinching Group One glory in the National Stakes at the Curragh and he looked every inch a Classic contender when making a winning return in Newmarket's Craven Stakes in mid-April.

Beacon leads Hannon trio

Beacon bids to get the Richard Hannon yard off to another flying start at Glorious Goodwood as he heads a strong two-year-old challenge in Tuesday's Bet365 Molecomb Stakes. The Group Three sprint was won by Hannon's father three times in the previous five renewals through Monsieur Chevalier, Zebedee and 12 months ago when Brown Sugar just held off his better-fancied stable companion Anticipated.

PJA hits out at ERA Cosgrave case

The Professional Jockeys Association has issued its concerns over the judicial processes of the Emirates Racing Authority after its handling of the Pat Cosgrave affair. A British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel decided not to reciprocate Cosgrave's four-month suspension, which he received for improper riding in the Group One Jebel Hatta, in Britain.

Star duo head Sussex field

Kingman and Toronado are among a field of just five runners in the Qipco Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on Wednesday. Since his narrow defeat in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket in early May, the John Gosden-trained Kingman has claimed hugely impressive victories in the Irish Guineas and the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot to confirm himself the leading three-year-old miler in the country.

Lion could roar in Champion Stakes

Trainer Andreas Lowe is to consider the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot for Sunday's German Group One winner Lucky Lion. The High Chaparral colt made a swift start to 2014, winning his first three races, including the German Guineas.

Pitt ponders Sir Maximilian Stewards’ run

Tim Pitt has a few factors to take into account before deciding if recent Curragh winner Sir Maximilian takes in Saturday's 32Red Cup at Goodwood. After missing the cut for the Wokingham at Royal Ascot, Shropshire-based Pitt tried his sprinter without success at Newcastle and Hamilton but he returned to form in the Rockingham Handicap.

Beckett considers Gesture gameplan

Ralph Beckett is weighing up the next plan of attack with Secret Gesture following another excellent effort in defeat at York on Saturday. Runner-up behind stable companion Talent in last year's Investec Oaks at Epsom, Secret Gesture went on to be placed in the German Oaks and the Yorkshire Oaks before the end of her three-year-old campaign.

Chopin team wait on softer ground

Andreas Wohler will not close in on any targets for Chopin until he is guaranteed some cut in the ground. Last year's Derby seventh does have an entry in next month's Molson Coors Celebration Mile at Goodwood but has not been in action since the spring.Qatar Racing's four-year-old was fourth in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury.

Time out for Carpenter

Master Carpenter is likely to have a rest through the end of the summer after a busy and productive spell for the Rod Millman yard. After running behind Kingman in the Greenham Stakes, the chestnut has appeared five more times and took a Listed race at Sandown before making the leap to Group Three level at Chantilly.

Options open for Approval

Seal Of Approval could aim to get her season back on track in either the Yorkshire Oaks or the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury next month. James Fanshawe's filly claimed an impressive Group One victory in the British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes at Ascot last October, but following a creditable return in the Yorkshire Cup, she ran no sort of race in the Lancashire Oaks.

Pallasator states case for Ebor

Pallasator boosted his claims for the Betfred Ebor with an emphatic victory in the GL Events Owen Brown Handicap at Ascot. Sir Mark Prescott's imposing five-year-old loomed up menacingly alongside long-time leader Double Bluff and stormed away in the last half a furlong to score by two lengths in the hands of Luke Morris.

Custom a cut above

Custom Cut claimed back-to-back Listed victories by winning theSkybet Supporting The Yorkshire Racing Summer Festival Pomfret Stakes at Pontefract. The former Irish runner is now in training with David O'Meara, for whom he landed a decent pot on soft ground at Windsor towards the end of June.
