Goodwood Racecourse

Located in West Sussex, Goodwood is one of the premier racecourses in Britain.

Hosting three Group 1 races throughout the year and numerous Group 2 and Group 3 races, Goodwood is an attractive track which is set to the north of the Iron Age hill fort.

Goodwood features a 1200m straight which is popular with punters and there are many different tracks that encompass the entire course.

Due to being close to the coast, fog can cover the track which makes for an eerie atmosphere.

Glorious Goodwood Preview

The main event on the opening day of racing at Glorious Goodwood is the Goodwood Cup. Stradivarius will attempt to win his fifth Goodwood Cup on what will likely be his final appearance on the track. He'll have to turn the tables on Kyprios and Mojo Star, who finished first and second ahead of Stradivarius in the Ascot Gold Cup.

Some of the best juveniles around will clash in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood on Tuesday, before many of the finest seven-furlong exponents square off in the Group Two Lennox Stakes. Day one viewers also have three good quality handicaps and a competitve maiden to enjoy.

Day two's card features two lucrative Group Three races. First, fillies and mares will meet in the Oak Tree Stakes, before some of the quickest juveniles around take each other on over five furlongs in the Molecomb Stakes.

Wednesday's highlight is the thrilling Sussex Stakes, a Group One which was first run way back in 1841. This year's Sussex Stakes could see unbeaten Baaeed take on 2000 Guineas winner, Coroebus for the first time.

Fillies and mares take centre-stage in day three's feature race, the Nassau Stakes. John Gosden's Nashwa dominates the betting after her Prix de Diane success. La Petite Coco, Tuesday and My Astra could line up in opposition.

The Group Two Richmond Stakes and the Gordon Stakes, a key trial for the St Leger, will also take place on Thursday. Day three racegoers will also take in the Kincsem and Halnaker Handicaps, as well as a thrilling nursery handicap.

The Golden Mile Handicap will likely prove the biggest betting race on day four. Friday's viwers will also enjoy the King George Stakes, where Nunthorpe favourite Royal Acclaim could be seen again. The Thoroughbred Stakes will also take place on Friday, along with the popular Goodwood Handicap.

The fifth and final day of racing at Glorious Goodwood is headlined by one of the sport's most prestigious handicaps, the Steward's Cup. The big Graded race on Saturday is the Lillie Langtry Stakes. The consolation race for the Stewards' Cup opens the day five card, before viewers watch another excellent renewal of the Summer Handicap.
