Firenze takes the high road.

Ante-Post favourite Firenze will race from stall 22 as high numbers proved popular at the draw ceremony for tomorrow's Vodafone Stewards' Cup at Glorious Goodwood.

James Fanshawe's charge, the mount of Frankie Dettori, was 10th out of the hat and joint-owner Jan Hopper opted to go towards the far side, which has produced six of the last eight winners of the six-furlong handicap.

"We are very happy with that," she said. "It looks as though there is going to be plenty of pace on both sides but he's in good form and we are really looking forward to it."

O'Neill 'sorry'

Paul O'Neill is hoping to "get on with his career" after being handed a one-day suspension for an incident which saw him headbutt City Affair before the start of a race at Stratford on July 23.

O'Neill said: "I am pleased the hearing is now over. I accept the judgement of the panel and I want to take this final opportunity to say how sorry I am."

Thirsk dancer

Dancer's Serenade can give value seekers something to shout about in the Polar Ford Handicap Stakes at Thirsk tomorrow.

Tom Tate's four-year-old has failed to get his head in front since winning at Newcastle last season but has slipped to an enticingly low handicap mark as a result.

He was a deeply impressive winner at Ripon last year when the ground was riding soft and it would be no surprise to see him step up after the recent arrival of the rain.
