Henry Cecil dismissed the hyping of two-year-old Chester House as "ridiculous" despite victory for the colt at Goodwood yesterday in his first race outing.

Chester House scrambled home by half a length to land the EBF Foxhall Maiden Stakes. Stablemate Daggers Drawn, winner of Thursday's Richmond Stakes, heads the 2,000 Guineas market at 7-1. Chester House, by Mr Prospector, is available at 20-1.
