Glorious Goodwood – betting, tips and preview

One of the highlights of the summer racing season is nearly upon us. It is of course Glorious Goodwood 2016! With a number of big races coming up over the next few days we’ll cut straight to the chase, what have the bookies got to offer?

    Glorious Goodwood – Top offer

    The pick of our Glorious Goodwood betting offers comes from Bet365, who have this superb rolling risk free bet:

    Back any single winner at 4/1 or more on any race televised live on Channel 4 and you can have a risk free bet to the same stake (up to £50*) on the next live Channel 4 race. This offer applies to the FIRST single bet placed by a customer on each live Channel 4 race.

    If your risk free bet also wins at odds of 4/1 or more, you qualify for a risk free bet on the next live Channel 4 race. Keep backing those winners and bet365 will keep giving you risk free bets! If your risk free bet loses, your stake (up to £50*) will be refunded to your account.

    This offer will not apply where a stake has been fully Cashed Out. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, any refund amount or subsequent risk free bet amount will be equal to the remaining active stake. Where more than one selection in the same race is placed on the same bet slip, the first selection is deemed to be the one which is highest on the bet slip. Bets must be paid for and placed in the usual way. Ante-Post bets, Enhanced win bets, Tote/Pari-Mutuel (bets and dividends), and ‘Not to Win’ bets are not applicable for this offer.

    The Glorious Goodwood race meet consists of 5 full days of top drawer racing. Starting on Tuesday 26th July, it runs throughout the week to the final day on Saturday 30th July. Here’s what each day has to offer:

    Day 1 – Tuesday 26th July

    Card consists of 7 races from 2pm.

    Feature race: The Qatar Lennox Stakes (Group 2).

    The undoubted sporting and social highlight of the season, the Qatar Goodwood Festival gets under way in 2016 with the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday 26th July – a celebration of past winners and the unveiling of specially commissioned cups for the week’s feature races.

    Day 2 – Wednesday 27th July

    Card consists of 7 races from 2pm.

    Feature race: The Qatar Sussex Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1).

    The Qatar Sussex Stakes is one of the highlights of the flat racing season and this year for the first time carries prize money of £1m. This mile-long Group 1 race has previously been won by the peerless Frankel and is certain to attract a world-class field in 2016.

    Day 3 – Thursday 28th July

    Card consists of 8 races from 1:30pm

    Feature race: The Qatar Goodwood Cup (Group 2).

    Ladies’ Day is the most glamorous day of the meeting, and is truly the place to see and be seen. The Group 2 Qatar Goodwood Cup is the highlight of the seven race card and now worth £300,000. And with two further Group races, the competition on track will be fierce.

    The sight of a packed field of horses hurtling at speeds of over 40mph past the Goodwood grandstands makes the £300,000 Group 2 Qatar King George Stakes one of the highlights of the year. Add in three further Group races and Friday of the Qatar Goodwood Festival has to be one of the most enthralling days racing in the entire calendar.

    Day 5 – Saturday 30th July

    Card consists of 8 races from 2pm.

    Feature Races: The Qatar Nassau Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1) and The Qatar Stewards’ Cup (Handicap).

    The 2016 running of the Group 1 Qatar Nassau Stakes will be the most significant mid-summer race for fillies and mares, thanks to increased prize money of £600,000. Won in the past by Ouija Board, Midday and The Fugue, this historic race provides racegoers with the opportunity to see the finest equine athletes doing battle on the immaculate Goodwood turf.
