MALTON trainer Richard Fahey has three bullets to fire at tomorrow’s 32Red Cup at Glorious Goodwood.

The Musley Bank handler will be represented by Alben Star, Ballesteros and Flyman - but has warned rain will be needed for two of them to be at their best.

Fahey, who is chasing a first victory in Goodwood’s £100,000 contest, reported: “Alben Star is in great order and has been in the form of his life.

“He was a bit unlucky in the Scurry at the Curragh the last day but we are happy with him and we will have to see what happens.

“We would like some rain for Flyman - we have been waiting all year for it.

“It has been frustrating but I decided to declare him because there are some heavy showers forecast.

“The more rain the better and he is the type of horse that could win a big race like this.

“We have got the rail to run against with Ballesteros in stall one but he could do with some rain as well.

“He has been disappointing this year but, as a result, has got himself well handicapped. If the rain came, he would have a chance.”
