Celsius lands Glorious Goodwood prize and a win for Daring Guest

Owned by Jon Collins, Chris Fahy and Steve Piper, this progressive sprinter has now won four times this season and had this race as a target since winning his seasonal bow at Haydock back in June.

Subsequent victories at Haydock and Doncaster ensured a run and he faced 16 rivals under in-form jockey PJ McDonald.

He broke slowly to the stalls but was soon travelling strongly. The gaps came for PJ and he had a willing partner in Celsius who showed a good turn of foot to wear down the long-time leader by a short head.

Tom said: "That was very special. To win at a big meeting like this makes a lot and for Chris and Jon who have supported us from day one makes it all the more special. He is a progressise sprinter who can hopefully build from this."

Daring Guest capped a good week for the team when winning a 6f handicap at Wolverhampton under Luke Morris.
