Jim Crowley: “Everything has gone smoothly so far and hopefully we can keep the winning run going”
Jim Crowley previews his rides on day two of the Qatar Goodwood Festival
He has been very consistent this year. He has gone up 6lb for his last win, but he is back in against his own age group now. He is a horse who likes to go forward. I can see him running well.
He has been drawn out wide, so hopefully I can get a good position. I think he has an excellent each-way chance in this race.
We thought a lot of her last year. She ran well on her last start, finishing second in a Group Three at Newmarket. She was going to run in the Guineas, but she had a setback on the gallops.
Unfortunately, she has been drawn out wide, and with the false rail, it is not ideal. She is a big price, but I think she can run better than those odds suggest.

I had mixed feelings when the news came through about Coroebus missing this race. In a way, I was looking forward to facing him, but it does make the task easier now. Saying that, this is still a good race. July Cup winner Alcohol Free won this race last year, Modern Games is in the field and Order Of Australia is in there. I am really looking forward to it.
There will be pressure on my shoulders, as everybody expects us to win. I will just be hoping we get a nice clear run around. It doesn’t always work out that way, but I will try and keep it as simple as possible.
Everything has gone smoothly so far and hopefully we can keep the winning run going.
