The French challenger Al Jazi may make her second appearance at Glorious Goodwood in the Qatar Lennox Stakes on August 1.
The filly, trained by Francois Rohaut, won the Queens Plate on the Sussex Downs last summer and connections are keen on a return to the track. She made a successful start to the new campaign in a Listed event at Maisons-Laffitte in April and was ninth in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot on Saturday.
Rohaut said, “She won well there last year, so we have entered her in the Lennox Stakes and will also enter her again in the Queens Plate. She ran well at Royal Ascot. The trip (six furlongs) was a bit sharp for her and she will enjoy stepping back up to seven furlongs. She is programmed to go to Goodwood now.”
The horse is one of 46 entries for the Lennox Stakes with Limato one of the headlines names in the running.
The three-time Group One winner Alice Springs is one of eight possible runners for Aidan O’Briend and American Wesley Ward may enter his first Goodwood runner with Commonwealth Cup fourth Bound For Nowhere.
Godolphin will be entering last year’s Dutch Connection and 2015 scorer Toormore while the Diamond Jubilee runner-up Tasleet may be running for William Haggas.
Take Cover, the ten-year-old sprinter who was fifth in the King’s Stand Stakes at Ascot, is hoping for a third victory in the King George Stakes on August 4.
Trainer David Griffiths said, “The plan now is to take in a race before we go to Goodwood. The City Walls Stakes at York, which he won a couple of years ago, could be an option as that would tie in nicely with going to Goodwood. It would be nice for him to be the first triple winner of the King George Stakes.”
