Chapple-Hyam wants Celebration

Improving three-year-old Thikriyaat is one of nine six-day entries for the Doom Bar Celebration Mile at Goodwood on Saturday.

Thikriyaat: Among Celebration Mile decs

Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, the Azamour gelding won his fourth race from just five career starts when he landed the Group Three Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes over a mile at Glorious Goodwood last time and he's been supplemented at a cost of £10,000.

He is one of two three-year-olds in the Group Two on Saturday, the other being Zonderland, trained by Clive Cox.

The Dutch Art colt was also a Group Three winner on his latest start, in the Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury.

The older horses are headed by Godolphin's Toormore, who carries a 3lb penalty for his Group Two win in the bet365 Mile at Sandown earlier in the season.

Hathal, last seen winning a Listed race at Newmarket for William Haggas last September, could make a belated seasonal reappearance.

Gabrial finished second last year and could take his chance again for Richard Fahey, while David O'Meara's So Beloved is another northern-based challenger.

Qatar Racing have both Arod and Lightning Spear in the reckoning, with Breton Rock completing the list of nine possibles.

Sky Bet bet: 5/2 Thikriyaat; 10/3 Zonderland; 5/1 Toormore; 6/1 Lightning Spear; 8/1 Arod; 9/1 So Beloved; 11s bar.
