Mark Johnston: The trainer could augment his fine record at Goodwood with Oriental Fox

Garswood primed for glory at Goodwood

Frankel himself struggled to preserve the dignity of Glorious Goodwood last year, when obliged to compete with the London Olympics. Today the  fixture’s claims as the most charming ritual of the British Turf are threatened with dilution only by the weather forecast, which has rather too equivocal a look for the liking of either punters or aesthetes.

A black cloud hangs over Sky. The build-up to the Ashes has been excruciating, like waiting in the muggy heat for a storm to start. Sky have even set up a bespoke Ashes channel – well actually it's just Sky Sports 2 by another name – but now they have ditched their estimable two-hour highlights package just at the crucial moment and brought in a whole lot more Bob Willis instead.
