Goodwood fancy Tigre Du Terre misses meeting following sale to Hong Kong

Tigre Du Terre: has been sold to the Far East
1 of 1

Tigre Du Terre, who was ante-post favourite for Goodwood's Unibet Golden Mile, will miss the race as he has been sold privately and will continue his career in Hong Kong.

Owners Middleham Park Racing said an "astronomical" offer, which was too good to turn down, had been made for the three-year-old, who won the Coral Challenge Handicap at Sandown earlier this month.

Racing manager Tim Palin said: "It was a private deal, but the figure we were offered was astronomical. We would have been foolhardy to turn it down. We would like to thank Richard Hannon and wish his new owners the best of luck."

The sale will secure a substantial return for syndicate members on a horse bought for €55,000 and who had already earned £77,000 in prize-money.

Middleham Park said it had also entered last weekend's Group 3 Anglesey Stakes winner Marie's Diamond in the Goffs Goodwood Sale, which will be held after racing on Wednesday.

Without Parole: one of 13 entries in the Sussex Stakes

Without Parole and Expert Eye to do battle in Sussex Stakes

St James's Palace Stakes winner Without Parole will bid to maintain his unbeaten record as one of 13 confirmations for next Wednesday's Group 1 Sussex Stakes, where he will face fellow Royal Ascot winner Expert Eye.

Without Parole, who beat Gustav Klimt by half a length in the showpiece event for three-year-old milers at Royal Ascot, is the mount of Andrea Atzeni and will attempt to add a second top-level win to his name.

French 2,000 Guineas runner-up Hey Gaman also represents the Classic generation in the £1 million contest.

Qatar Sussex Stakes five-day entries and betting

Sir Michael Stoute's Jersey Stakes winner Expert Eye, who won the Vintage Stakes so impressively at the meeting last year, has been supplemented as expected.

The Juddmonte-owned colt redeemed his reputation last time with an explosive win and he receives the services of the in-form James Doyle.

Expert Eye: will be bidding for a first win at Group 1 level

Aidan O'Brien, who won Goodwood's premier mile contest in 2016 with The Gurkha, still has four engaged including Gustav Klimt and Lockinge winner Rhododendron.

The evergreen Lightning Spear, third behind Here Comes When in last year's race, represents the older horses alongside the rejuvenated Beat The Bank, Lord Glitters and So Beloved. 

Coral make Without Parole the 13-8 market leader with Expert Eye at 2-1 and Beat The Bank and Gustav Klimt at 8-1.
