Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood likely next stop for Chipotle | Racing News

Chipotle could bid for compensation in the Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood after his bid for the Weatherbys Super Sprint Stakes at Newbury on Saturday was opposed.

The two-year-old, who won the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot, started as a 15-8 favorite for the lucrative contest but has been severely thwarted on more than one occasion.

Finally finishing ninth out of 22 runners, the bay was beaten by Richard Hannon’s Gubbass by three quarters of the length.

Coach Eve Johnson Houghton is currently reviewing Team Three Molecomb after the foal’s failed Super Sprint performance.

“He’s just been murdered, he’s been completely wiped out twice, it’s so upsetting,” she said.

“He has only been hit three segments and that is having been stopped on his track at least twice.

“I think it’s fair to say he’s very, very unlucky – maybe he’ll go to Molecomb next.”

The trainer had some luck over the weekend when the steady favorite Random Dealer knocked the Newmarket Fine Watches Club Handicap by half the length below the Georgia Dobie.

The agent happened to be joined at Ascot in the seven-stakes Moet & Chandon International Stakes on Saturday, a track that seemed fitting for gelding as he won Queen Anne Stakes there at the 2018 Royal Meeting.

Johnson Houghton said: “He went to Ascot on Saturday with a big handicap there.

“But there’s not much for him over straight miles, so if we don’t go there then we might go to Salisbury for the Sovereign Stakes.

“He’s definitely much better on a straight mile.” | Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood likely next stop for Chipotle | Racing News
