East Asia continued his impressive recent run at Goodwood by winning the Patrons’ Handicap yesterday.

The six-year-old headed into the race having won on its last run at the racecourse in West Sussex at the end of last month over two miles.

East Asia, was sent off as the 9/4 favourite in the two-mile contest and cruised to victory winning by a length with 11/1 shot To Be Wild finishing second.

Lydford and Call My Bluff were expected to be East Asia’s closest rivals in the race, but Lydford put in a disappointing performance and finished sixth, while Call My Bluff was a non-runner.

The other horse who was tipped to do well was Global Warning.

The four-year-old impressed on his previous outings at Ascot last month as he finished fourth out of 18 runners when priced at 22/1.

However, after being sent off the 2/1 favourite in the Jackson-Stops Handicap, he finished sixth and ten lengths behind the winner, The Lamplighter.

Sussex trainer Gary Moore had one runner in the Charlton Hunt Handicap with Platinum Prince.

The four-year-old was ridden by Brighton-born jockey Jason Watson, who had his first ride back after serving a five-day riding suspension.

However, the 18/1 outsider finished sixth.
