Fair play to cool Cam

Barnet Fair struck for talented 5lb claimer Cam Hardie in the 32RedSport.com Handicap at Goodwood.

This consolation race for the 32Red Cup later on the card was still a hot contest, despite 10 late withdrawals, mainly due to the quick ground.

The field split into two groups, with the fancied Stepping Out leading on the near side and the 11-2 favourite Tatlisu not far away.

But it was the Dandy Nicholls-trained Barnet Fair (7-1), second at Ascot last Sunday, who came through on the far side group to narrowly land the spoils from Mission Approved and Tatlisu in a finish of short heads.

Slip Sliding Away was fourth and Humidor fifth.

Hardie, who was claiming his first Glorious Goodwood winner, said: "He had a good second at Ascot last week and he's franked the form.

"He was a little keen with me early on, so I just wanted to get some cover and get him switched off.

"He idled when he got to the front, but he travelled all the way through to the line."
