Chubby'S HOOF

Chubby Chandler wants to aim higher with Hoof It after the four-year-old tries to defy the welter burden of 10st in the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood today.

Chandler jointly owns the speedster with Lee Westwood, but will have to put up a mega weight-carrying performance in one of the most competitive sprint handicaps in the calendar.

Hoof It warmed up for this Herculean task with an emphatic victory at York last Saturday, for which he was handed a 6lb penalty, making him the clear top-weight.

"It's a tough race and I hope he goes in Group races after this," said Chandler.
