Circus Maximus Supplemented For Sussex Stakes

St James's Palace Stakes winner Circus Maximus has been supplemented for the Group 1 Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood as the mile contest hots up ahead of the big festival.

The Niarchos family, who own the Group 1 winner at the royal meeting, have had to fork out £70,000 to run their superstar in the Goodwood feature which now sees nine runners go to post with a final declaration to be made on Monday.

Circus Maximus will be racing against old rivals from his previous race with John Gosden's Too Darn Hot, who finished third behind the Aidan O'Brien trained three year old at Royal Ascot, currently leading the field as the 5/4 favourite.

Too Darn Hot got back to form in his last run when landing the first Group 1 of his three year old campaign, winning the Prix Jean Prat over in France.

He went back down to seven furlongs for that race and will be stepping up to a mile again for the race at Goodwood which could be the undoing of him again or he could rise to the occasion.

Credit Racing Post: "I think we have got him back in the right place now and I was most impressed with the way he hit the line at Deauville over seven furlongs," his trainer John Gosden said.

Another rival for Circus Maximus in the contest next week will be the Irish 2000 Guineas winner Phoenix Of Spain who will be looking to bounce back to form after his poor run at Royal Ascot but if he replicates his run from the Curragh he is one to watch.

Group 1 Queen Anne winner at Royal Ascot Lord Glitters also enters the line up for David O'Meara with Accidental Agent, Zabeel Prince, I Can Fly, Happy Power and Never No More are other possibles for the prestigious prize.
