3rd August

Dead Cert of the Day

3.00 Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes - Enbihaar - 5/2

Here come the girls on the final day of the Goodwood Festival as they take to the track to strut their stuff in the Lillie Langtry Stakes. Open to three-year-olds and older, our choice for this race is John Gosden’s 5/2 chance Enbihaar. The winner of the Lancashire Oaks, she also has previous form on this course and shouldn’t be troubled by the going conditions or the distance.

Dark Horse of the Day

1:50 Qatar Stewards Sprint Handicap - Puds - 12/1

This race is about speed, speed and more speed. You’ll need to find a horse quick on the draw and who’ll be handy throughout as coming from the back isn’t always the best strategy at Goodwood. We’ve gone for Puds in this race, who has run here three times already this season and has picked up a victory and two second-place finishes, so we think he’s due to find another win here.

Bet of the day

2.25 Qatar Summer Handicap - Kings Advice - 9/2

Mark Johnston has always been the trainer to watch at Goodwood and Kings Advice looks to be his best chance to add another win to his tally on the final day of the festival. Nursing an unbeaten record on 2019 on turf until he switched to all-weather, he got back to winning ways at Newmarket in the bet365 trophy and has the class to reaffirm his dominance over 1m6f here. Glorious Goodwood Feature Race

3:40 Stewards Cup - Flavius Titus - 11/1

The final feature race at Glorious Goodwood, the Stewards Cup is always a fast and furious affair at 6f, and we feel the value in this race lies at the price of 11/1 with Flavius Titus. With two wins already this season at Newmarket for Roger Varian, this race looks like a welcome step up.

There’s also further betting value in this race if you prefer the each-way market with 20/1 chances Raucous and Open Wide both coming into Goodwood in fine form, so there is the chance to add more to winnings here.

2nd August

Dead Cert of the Day

5:15 Australia Handicap - Harrovian - 10/3

John Gosden is one of the inform trainers at Glorious Goodwood and his 10/3 chance Harrovian has the ability to continue his winning streak. Victorious last time out at Pontefract over 1m2f, he’s upped in distance here but and although he's top of the weights, he’s looks the one to beat in his handicap debut.

Dark Horse of the Day

2:25 Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes - Art Du Val - 6/1

Godolphin and Charlie Appleby haven’t quite got off the mark at Goodwood, but Art Du Val could change that for them today. This is the first run for the 6/1 chance in the UK this season. However, his form at Meydan and Saint-Cloud has proven to be strong so the race could go in his favour here.

Bet of the day

3:00 Unibet Golden Mile Handicap - Mojito - 10/3

Our best bet across the entire Goodwood card is William Haggas-trained Mojito who starts the day at 10/3. Unbeaten in the closing stages of the season back in 2017 he was a welcome breath of fresh air back when he made his first appearance for 637 days in the Coral Challenge Handicap at Sandown and with Frankie Dettori in the saddle, he looks to be the one to beat. Glorious Goodwood Feature Race

3:35 King George Qatar Stakes - El Astronaute - 8/1

The King George Stakes is the highlight race on the penultimate day of Glorious Goodwood, and with Battaash expected to go to post as 1/4, the value in the race is most definitely further down the card. El Astronaute is an 8/1 chance to improve on his wins at the Curragh earlier in the year, suited to this distance, the going conditions shouldn’t provide him with too much difficulty, especially if the Goodwood course manages to dry up a little.

##1st August

21’s Bet of the Day

4:10 Nursery Handicap - Governor Of Punjab - 5/1

It’s Ladies Day at Glorious Goodwood, so it’s time to put on those posh dresses and pick out your biggest fascinators. But back to the racing. Two-year-old Governor of Punjab is still a relative novice when it comes to horse racing and even more so on the big stage. Victorious in his last two outings for Mark Johnston, he comes to Goodwood in fine form at priced at 5/1 he’s a good value bet here.

Dark Horse of the Day

1.50 Unibet Handicap - Dalaalaat - 8/1

William Haggas is always a trainer to watch at Goodwood, and his runner in the opener Dalaalaat can certainly set tongues wagging if he manages to pass the post first. Winning last time out on the all-weather he shifts back to turf for his race. With Hayley Turner in the saddle, he sits at the bottom of the weights, which on a steep Goodwood course could be a strong advantage. Glorious Goodwood Feature Race

15:00 Gordan Stakes - Leo De Fury -15/2

The Gordon Stakes plays the perfect support act to the feature race on the Goodwood card, the Nassau Stakes. Packed full of talent, the current market favourite at 9/4 is Constantinople who could provide welcome winner to the stable of Aidan O’Brien and jockey Ryan Moore, who seems to be stuck in first gear so far this week.

We believe there is better value in the race if you move away from the market favourite and the first who has caught our eye is Longchamp winner Technician. Upped in distance here, he seemed suited to further than 1m2f, so this little extra running distance could be the difference here.

It’s not very often Jessica Harrington sends horses to Goodwood, but ** Leo De Fury** certainly catches the eye here, particularly if you look at his form back in Ireland. Despite being upped in class here, his odds of 15/2 make him a very appealing prospect for the each-way backers.

##30th July

The opening day of Glorious Goodwood will see the top jockeys and trainers from across the UK and the rest of the world flex their muscles in the first group one and group two races of the week. John Gosden and Frankie Dettori are topping the leaderboards once again in 2019 when it comes to Group Ones, and the duo doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon.

Dead Cert of the Day

** 3:35 Goodwood - Goodwood Cup - Stradivarius -8/11 ** Stradivarius is back at Glorious Goodwood and is searching for a hat-trick of wins in the highlight race on the opening day. Partnered by Frankie Dettori, the duo can’t seem to put a foot wrong when they take to the track at any distance. He’s currently 8/11 favourite, and thanks to his blistering form of seven unbeaten runs, we don’t think anything will be able to touch him when he winds up to challenge in the final furlong.

Dark Horse of the Day

** 1:50 Unibet Handicap - Soto Sizzler 11/2 **

** Soto Sizzler ** is our dark horse of the day at 6/1 in the opening race on the card. He comes to the race in good form with a second place finish at Kempton last time out and two wins at Epsom earlier in the season. He’s down in trip for this race and with Oisin Murphy in the saddle, he could make an impact here.

Bet of the Day

** 2:25 Vintage Stakes - Visinari - 3/1 **

Trainer Mark Johnson has one of the best records at Goodwood, and with ** Visinari **, his chance in the second race has the capacity to add another victory to that tally. Priced at 3/1, he comes to Glorious Goodwood in fine form following a third place finish in the July Stakes at Newmarket. He’ll have Dettori in the saddle once again so we expect a strong performance. Glorious Goodwood Feature Race

3:00 Lennox Stakes - Donjuan Triumphant - 22/1

The Qatar Lennox Stakes proceeds the Stewards Cup at Glorious Goodwood, and it could be the perfect race to fill your betting balance to help you get through the rest of the festival. 10 runners are expected to line up in the stalls for the 7f contest with two of the standout horses Hey Gaman and Zaaki topping the betting markets at 3/1 and 7/2, respectively.

Here at (/betting), we believe there’s better value in the race, especially if you look in the each-way market, Donjuan Triumphant sits at a rather tantalising 22/1 and could be the right each-way bet. He’ll be ridden by Silvestre De Sousa, who has shown promising form on the all-weather and at Newbury, he’ll be looking at this race as the perfect opportunity to add another placing to his 2019 tally.

History of Glorious Goodwood

The Glorious Goodwood festival is a well known fixture around the world. The best sprinters and middle distance runners descend on Sussex for five days of racing. Here at we have pulled together some interesting snippets about Goodwood Racecourse.

First off, there aren’t many courses across the UK horse racing that can call upon 200 years of history and a military history to prove its calibre, but thankfully for us Goodwood is falls into that category. Now a firm fixture in the racing calendar of many punters, it’s actually by chance that the course has so much in connection with the sport of kings.

Glorious Goodwood: Where it all began

The story of Goodwood racecourse begins in 1801, where the Third Duke of Richmond held a private race meeting for the Sussex Militia stationed close to his house seat. Due to the popularity of the race day, the following year he decided to host a three day meeting which was also made open to the public.

Dubbed ‘Glorious Goodwood’ by newspapers at the time, the race meeting became the highlight of the summer season, also gaining royal seal of approval direct from King George IV and King Edward VII.

Glorious Goodwood in the modern era

Now neatly sandwiched between Royal Ascot and the Ebor Meeting in York, two of the big meetings in UK horse racing. It’s a key fixture in the race calendar for any higher rolling punter, who might be looking to find some big wins before the concluding months of the season.

Glorious Goodwood 2018 Key Moments

Those wanting to take a look at the horse racing betting odds for Goodwood should not only take a peek at the most recent Group One races, but also the key events from 2018 before making their decisions on who to bet on.

Stradivarius remains middle distance top dog

The Goodwood Cup is the highlight race on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood and, in both 2017 and 2018, Stradivarius powered to victory. He’s back for another attempt this year, and in the betting for the race, he’s 8/11 favourite to complete the feat once again.

Mark Johnston topped the trainer rankings

Trainer Mark Johnston is no slouch when it comes to sending his stable stars to the South Downs, and he proved this in 2018 when he topped the Goodwood trainer rankings. He’s certainly got some stayers to watch out for again this season including Dee Ex Bee who is expected to challenge Stradivarius in the Goodwood Cup.

Frankie Dettori had a smaller part to play

Facing a suspension which ran into the opening days of the 2018 Goodwood Festival, Frankie Dettori missed out on some key rides, some of which turned into Group One winners for Andrea Atzeni. This year, however, Frankie is back, and the little Italian won’t be short of opportunities to add to winning total of 2019.

Trainers and Jockeys at Glorious Goodwood

Finding the trainer or jockey who’ll make the most impact at a race meeting is no easy task. Every trainer has a specific racing style and many prefer a particular course, which can give their stable stars the best opportunity to land a Group One win and catapult themselves to the top of the rankings.

The same, in some ways, can be said for jockeys. They’ll need a horse who’ll be handy in the early stages of races, particularly if they’re contesting one of shorter distance races. They’ll also need one who can avoid the congestion of the bends on the longer courses. So before you place your horse racing bets for Goodwood, it’s always best to find out who’s in form.

Trainers to watch at Glorious Goodwood

John Gosden

The man of the moment across UK horse racing, John Gosden has a 25% win rate at Goodwood which is calculated from 18 wins in 72 runs across the last three years. Frankie Dettori is his jockey of choice, he’ll be hoping the little Italian can work his magic on Stradivarius, Too Darn Hot and Mehdaayih in the highlight races of the week.

William Haggas

Matching the strike rates of Sir Michael Stoute and John Gosden, William Haggas always seems to put in a top performance when he heads to Goodwood. With 19 wins from 86 runs, giving him a just over 22% win percentage, he’s seen a constant win rate which should improve his chances of finding another winner here.

Jockeys at Glorious Goodwood

Frankie Dettori

One of the most experienced jockeys plying his trade on the racing circuit, Frankie Dettori is back with avengence at Goodwood this year. Missing part of the 2019 festival due to suspension, he’ll be in the saddle of many race favourites, many of which we expect to feature strongly in races.

Ryan Moore

Is there any racecourse this man can’t find a winner on? If you can find it, please send your answers on a postcard. Moore, the current stable jockey for Aidan O’Brien, has a 22.7% win rate at Goodwood which comes from 20 wins and 27 places in 88 runs.

Goodwood Racecourse Guide

Goodwood Racecourse Guide

The Qatar Goodwood Festival, or Glorious Goodwood as its more favourably known is one of the summer’s most popular racing festivals. Welcoming thousands of punters to the South Downs, have put together a guide for everything you could possibly need to know about Goodwood Racecourse.

Where is Goodwood Racecourse

Located in Chichester, West Sussex, Goodwood Racecourse is controlled by the Duke of Richmond who holds the nearby seat at Goodwood House. Packed full of history, the course has played host to racing for over 200 years, it holds 19 different race days each year.

What is the course like at Goodwood Races

Unlike many racecourses across the UK, Goodwood is not the traditional round shape you’d see at other racing circuits. A right handed course that is 14 furlongs long, the run is five furlongs long on from the top bend coming into the home straight and just shy of that distance from the bottom bend.

The course is full of undulations and includes both an uphill and downhill section, although jockeys will be thankful they don’t have to run uphill in the closing stages of a race. There are two tight bends which the horses will need to contend with and for those unfamiliar with the sharpness of the track, it can be unnerving. It’s also worth noting that the five furlong course is one of the fastest in the UK, suiting those who prefer speed overtaking shelter near the rail or being held up for a late challenge.

Race meetings at Goodwood

There are 19 race days scattered across the summer and autumn months at Goodwood. Starting in May and running into October, there are plenty of opportunities to visit the course if you can’t make it next week. Of course, Glorious Goodwood is the most famous with some races having almost 200 years of history.
