Goodwood option for Twilight Calls | Racing News

Henry Sweet’s King’s Stand runner-up Twilight Calls may head to Wonderful Goodwood subsequent.

The four-year-old produced a career-best effort in defeat at Royal Ascot on Tuesday, chasing house Australian star Nature Strip and proving better of the home problem.

With each run this season Twilight Calls has improved by a minimal of 4lb on official rankings and he took one other step ahead on the Royal assembly, however sadly the winner proved in a distinct league.

The speedy 5 furlongs of Goodwood’s King George Stakes might be his subsequent port of name, if not it will likely be straight to the Nunthorpe in August at York’s Ebor assembly.

“He is advantageous after the race, fortunately,” mentioned Sweet.

“We’ll ponder Goodwood, the King George there, in any other case it will likely be the Nunthorpe.

“I believe he is a five-furlong horse now. I do know it regarded as if he was staying on nicely the opposite day however the begin wasn’t good and I might be very loath to return to 6 furlongs. I’ve tried it sufficient instances and it did not work so I believe we’ll stick to 5 in the intervening time.

“Tuesday was one other step ahead, with every run this 12 months he has improved and he did so clearly once more, which is at all times good to see.

“Sadly from our standpoint the Australians got here this 12 months, however not less than we glance certain to have some enjoyable for the remainder of the 12 months.”
