Goodwood stages the standout domestic fixture on Sunday with an eight-race card that features the Group 3 Weatherbys Racing Bank Supreme Stakes (7f) at 4.10pm.

Dual Group 1 scorer Limato gives 3lb and upwards to nine rivals including last year’s winner Anna Nerium and three-year-old Momkin, third at the track on his last start in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Stakes behind yesterday’s Celebration Mile victor Duke Of Hazzard.

Four runners go to post for the Ladbrokes Handicap (1m2f) at 3pm with Le Don De Vie, a £460,000 purchase at the Goffs London Sales in June, bidding to get back to winning ways after finishing fourth at the track last time in the Unibet Handicap. The winner of that race, Sir Ron Priestley, followed up at the Sussex venue yesterday in the Group 3 March Stakes.

Yarmouth and Beverley also race today, staging seven and eight-race programmes respectively.

Deauville delights

The Group 2 Grand Prix de Deauville (1m4f) is one of three Pattern races at the Normandy track today. Nagano Gold, trained in the Czech Republic by Vaclav Luka and last seen finishing an unlucky second to Defoe in the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot, bids for compensation under Christophe Soumillon.

British interest is centred on the Group 3 Prix de Meautry Barriere, a six-furlong sprint. Keystroke, who supplied trainer Stuart Williams with his first Group triumph in the Abernant Stakes in April, makes the journey across the Channel along with Stake Acclaim (Dean Ivory), Glass Slippers (Kevin Ryan) and Poetry (Michael Bell).

Intervention on her travels

Ed Walker sends three-year-old filly Royal Intervention over to Germany today for the Group 2 Casino Baden-Baden Golden Peitsche (6f) at Baden-Baden.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel, owned by Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Will Farish, is already a Group 3 winner this season, taking the Summer Hill Stakes at York, and finished a close fifth behind Billesdon Brook in the Oaks Tree Stakes at Goodwood on her latest outing.

She faces six opponents including the Dominik-Moser trained Waldpfad, who caused a 33-1 upset in the Group 3 Hackwood Stakes at Newbury in July.

Mission accomplished

The victory of Code Of Honor in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes at Saratoga on Saturday was a first top-level win for the thee-year-old’s sire, Noble Mission.

A full brother to Frankel, Noble Mission stands at Lane’s End Farm in Kentucky at a fee of $15,000.
