ROBERT Winston was more than happy to have renewed an old association with Scottish trainer Jim Goldie after landing his third big staying handicap of the summer with victory on Sir Chauvelin at the Qatar Goodwood Festival.

Winston, who lives at Chilton, near Didcot, powered the six-year-old home by half a length from Melting Dew in the Qatar Summer Handicap to add to his wins aboard Withhold in the Stobart Rail & Civils Northumberland Plate at Newcastle and on Stratum in the JLT Cup at Newbury.

Victory in the £100,000 mile-and-six-furlong contest completed a 142-1 double in the first two races for Goldie.

Winston said: “Fair play to Jim. He has come all the way down from Scotland and he’s picked up the first two races.

“I rode a lot for him in my younger days, on Indian Spark and good horses like that. Obviously I am based down south now, but thanks for Jim for putting me up.

“It is a lovely prize – it is tough to get one winner at Glorious Goodwood, so to get two . . . well done to Jim.”

West Ilsley trainer Mick Channon bagged a brace of winners with The Night Porter taking the closing Qatar Apprentice Handicap on the final day to supplement Caravela’s success in the EBF Breeders’ Series Fillies’ Handicap earlier in the week.

Scott McCullagh, who produced The Night Porter with a powerful run to beat Kassar by half a length, said: “It’s been a great week. I had a winner on Thursday at Epsom (Iconic Belle for Channon) and to get a winner at Goodwood is a dream come true.”

Caravela was recording a third career success from nine starts when storming home by a length and three-quarters from old rival Savaanah under Andrea Atzeni.

And Channon said: “She hasn’t been the easiest horse to train and has had lots of niggles throughout her career. We’ve had to wait for her, but if they’re good you don’t mind waiting.”

Paul Cole, who trains at Whatcombe, near Wantage, was also in the Goodwood winner’s enclosure with Duke Of Hazzard, whom he plans to send to Deauville for a valuable Listed race after the two-year-old gained a half-length verdict in the Qatar EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes.

Eve Johnson Houghton sent out Hyanna from her Blewbury stables to claim a mile-and-a-half fillies’ handicap at Newmarket.
