Top jockey Neil Callan is in action in one of the feature races on day three of Glorious Goodwood on Thursday.

Callan spent the best part of a decade riding in Hong Kong but left for “family reasons” at the end of the 2020-21 season and is attempting to resurrect his career in Britain after a long time out of the spotlight.

The veteran rider has made a good start to life in the saddle back in England with 40 winners already on the board this year and he has the ride on the promising Jack Darcy in the Group Three Gordon Stakes (2,400m).

The three-year-old is unbeaten in two starts and was hugely impressive on his last start, beating odds-on shot Special Envoy by four and a half lengths at Newbury, and the form has since been franked with the runner-up a winner on his next start.

Jack Darcy can be backed at around $15 but is jumping massively in class against horses proven at the highest level.

Hoo Ya Mal finished a surprise second at odds of 150-1 in this year’s Epsom Derby and has subsequently been purchased for £1.2 million (HK$11.3 million) by Australian powerhouse Gai Waterhouse.

This may be Hoo Ya Mal’s last run in Britain before he is shipped out to embark on a Melbourne Cup campaign and he sets the standard for his fellow three-year-olds to reach.

The powerful Godolphin stable of Charlie Appleby is represented by New London, who holds an entry for the St Leger – British racing’s final Classic of the season – and is packed full of potential after winning a Newmarket handicap easily on his last start.

Callan’s other ride on the card comes in the Tatler EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (1,400m), in which he rides newcomer Berwick Law. He hails from the powerful stable of father-son combination Mark and Charlie Johnston, who regularly churn out winners at this track.

The Group One Nassau Stakes (2,000m) looks the perfect opportunity for regular Hong Kong visitor Hollie Doyle to pick up her second top-level win of the season.

Doyle is again on Nashwa, who provided her with her first Group One win when landing the Prix de Diane over this distance at Chantilly last month. That followed a good third over a couple of furlongs further in the Oaks.

The three-year-old takes on older fillies and mares for the first time in her career and with the Classic generation’s form taking a big hit in the King George at Ascot last weekend.

Nashwa’s biggest danger is likely to be Dreamloper. She is trained by Ed Walker, who has long been rumoured to be a potential addition to the Hong Kong training ranks.

Dreamloper is the only other Group One winner in the race after saluting in the Prix d’Ispahan in France a couple of months ago but the best of her form is found on softish ground.

The Group Two Richmond Stakes (1,200m) is another of this week’s two-year-old contests that will catch the eye of some Hong Kong owners and trainers.

Bluelight Boy appeals as a likely winner at decent odds after improving from his debut second to win a hot race at Windsor last time.
