6/4 preferred Kyprios denied Stradivarius a renowned fifth win in the Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup with a thrilling victory in the Tuesday function.

A fairy tale success looked possible when the eventual runner-up discovered racing room down the within the track as well as for a stride or two getting in the last furlong he looked ready to most likely to the front.

Nevertheless, Kyprios, the Gold Cup victor, discovered plenty under Ryan Moore and also he battled on tenaciously to fend his opponent off and rating by a neck.

Trueshan (2/1) was close-up in 3rd.

Moore holds the winner– that at one stage in his life was viewed as a Traditional competitor– is prestige.

” Today is just his 8th race as well as he is just doing what he needs to do,” he stated. “It was a steadily-run race and he remained in front a long way out. He was just waiting. I constantly feel I’m not going to the bottom of him.

” He is a correct Team One horse, as well as Aidan, has constantly had a lot of belief in the equine. At the beginning of the year, he was saying what he thought he could do, so all credit rating to him as well as the team in the house for obtaining him back.”

O’Brien was winning the Goodwood masterpiece for the third time, after the success of Yeats in 2006 as well as 2008.

” Kyprios is a terrific steed. Ryan offered him a beautiful trip and also he is only ever in the gear that you want him,” said the Ballydoyle handler. “It was wonderful that they all came into the straight. Ryan had Kyprios in a gorgeous position and he is an equine that enjoys a battle.

” He slouches as well as if you want him to stay in very first gear he will stay in first equipment as well as not enter into 2nd equipment unless you desire him– that is the method he is as well as the method he has always been. He conserves everything as well as is extremely professional. I’d state there’s a lot even more to find. He loves racing and is easy on himself as well as the strategy from here is to head to the Irish St Leger. Kyprios is a lovely horse, a total specialist, saves all his power and also there is any amount of enhancement in him.

” He has a great deal, of course, a great deal of high quality. He has actually run over two and also a half miles at Royal Ascot and also two miles today, but we would have had not a problem starting him over a mile and also a quarter at the beginning of the year, as he has that real rate. Nonetheless, you don’t see it as he doesn’t show it unless you truly desire it. It’s excellent to have him. Those types of equines are extremely unique when you have a horse that stays like that as well as has that course.”

Atzeni, who was in the saddle when Stradivarius won in 2017 as well as 2018, said: “He ran his heart out once more, the race went fairly efficiently. The equine I selected followed the winner, we went a good rate, as well as 4 out Trueshan, showed up on my outdoors, but it was a long way from the house, and I did not want to get racing early.

” I followed him with and also my main difficulty in the middle of the track was that the winner just went away from us. Perhaps he just got a bit lonesome on his very own, yet he went to the line as a champ and also you can not take that far from him.”

King, at the same time, was taking positives from the run of the Hollie Doyle-ridden Trueshan, who is constantly at his ideal when there is an authentic cut in the ground.

” Not satisfied not to have won, however, it was a heck of a performance,” stated the Barbury Castle trainer. “It was a correct Goodwood Cup. I believe the ground (could have brought about the defeat), however, I enjoyed running as well as have no regrets. We know he is a better horse on soft, however no shame today.”
