Jim Crowley enjoyed back to back wins at Goodwood on Saturday after Khaadem followed up on Enbihaar's success in the Lillie Langtry Stakes by winning the Steward's Cup for trainer Charles Hills.

It was a double success for His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum who owns both horses.

Khaadem was impressive and won comfortably beating Open Wide into second by two and three fourths of a length with Raucous a further three fourths behind in third.

Crowley said: "Fair play to Charlie for running him in the race, which suited him well. Off his last run he's a Group horse in a handicap and mentally he's improving all the time. It was a great performance.

"I had to squeeze for a bit of a gap up Joe Fanning's side at the two-furlong pole but we were always in a dream run and it worked out perfectly."

Hills added: "I so enjoyed that. Everything just went perfectly really and three-year-olds have a pretty good record in the race recently.

"This fellow could probably get seven furlongs if we wanted to go that route, but he's the most beautiful looking horse and he's growing up with every race."
