Stewards' Cup Tips: Pop to Master his rivals at Goodwood

A huge field will do battle in the Stewards' Cup on the final day of Glorious Goodwood.
A huge field will do battle in the Stewards' Cup on the final day of Glorious Goodwood.

We are set for a hugely competitive renewal of the Stewards' Cup on the final day of Glorious Goodwood, as a bumper field head to the 6f start for the sprint handicap highlight on the Sussex Downs. Our in-house tipster Steve Chambers previews the valuable event here and picks out his best bet for the event...

Former winners Summerghand (2020) and Commanche Falls (2021) will attempt to be the first horse since 1968 to win two Stewards' Cups, and that pair are 14/1 and 20/1 shots, respectively, for the 2022 renewal. A winner off 95 in last year's contest Commanche Falls unseated in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot, so is on the comeback mission, while Summerghand is rated 8lbs lower than his 2020 winner and off a 1lb higher mark in the Wokingham he finished a fine fifth, so of the two previous winners it has to be Summerghand that makes the most appeal at double-figured odds.

Roger Teal's Whenthedealinsdone currently heads the betting at 8/1, and that four-year-old was a winner of a 5f handicap at Glorious Goodwood last season, but this is a whole lot tougher and he's 5lbs higher here. He suffered traffic problems when seventh at Ascot last time out over 5f, so he should have a little more time to get going here, and off the same mark has to be respected.

The form horse lining up is the George Boughey-trained Inver Park, who was last seen winning the Buckingham Palace Handicap over seven furlongs at Royal Ascot, and he's 9/1 to follow up here. Given a 4lb hike in the weights for that success still leaves a chance for him to continue his progression, and with winning form over six furlongs he has to be a major player.

Several lining up in this event competed in the Wokingham Stakes and the shortest priced runners that did run in that Ascot event are Mr Wagyu and First Folio. Fourth and sixth, respectively, that pair are both 10/1 chances here and could feature, but the one to take from the race is POPMASTER, who has been a real model of consistency this season and at 12/1 is the one to be with.

Ed Walker's charge claimed two wins over six furlongs in 2021, and having disappointed over seven furlongs in the Victoria Cup at Ascot he was dropped back to three-quarters of a mile and finished a decent second at Chelmsford before going on to chase Rohaan home in the Wokingham. That is classy form, and while he's been given a 3lbs rise up to a mark of 101 he has shown that he relishes these sort of big-field handicaps and he's more than capable of playing a starring role for connections, and at 12/1 looks a very solid each-way play.

Andrew Balding's Chil Chil will have the burden of top weight, but the 14/1 chance has been competing in Group company of late, so should finish much easier. A decent fifth in the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York last season, the six-year-old then was a fine third in the Sprint Cup at Haydock Park, as he shone in Group 1 company. However, he disappointed on his reappearance in the Group 3 Hackwood Stakes at Newbury, so he will need to recapture his best form here.

Regional (16/1) and Great Ambassador - third last year - (11/1) are another duo in the upper echelons of the betting, and both appear to have the capabilities to put up decent displays at this sort of level, while there are some eye-catching contenders at big prices worthy of a mention in this event.

Justanotherbottle (33/1) was a fine winner at Ripon two starts ago, but found his new mark a little taxing last time out, so will need to bounce back, while the likes of Makanah (25/1), who is very consistent, and Tabneed, who has dropped down the handicap in recent runs and off a mark of 100 for in-form jockey Hollie Doyle then that 33/1 chance could well sneak in a place.
