Glorious Goodwood Day 4 Tips: Check out three tips for Friday.

There's a bit of everything for punters on day four of Glorious Goodwood with the King George Stakes the highlight at 15:35, as Battaash bids for a fifth win in the race, but we are taking on the speedster with a value option, and you can check out all our tips here...

13:50 Glorious Goodwood - Unibet 3 Boosts A Day Goodwood Handicap

We kick off Friday's racing with the longest race of the entire meeting, as the stayers do battle in an energy-sapping 2m 4f 134y event, and with the bookmakers going 8/1 the field, at the time of writing, then that just illustrates what an extraordinary betting heat punters have to try and work out. Last year's winner Just Hubert is bidding to retain the marathon crown, but despite being 1lb better off than last year he's been horribly out of form, and is very hard to fancy here.

This could be a race dominated by the first few in the betting and Michael Bell's Platform Nineteen has been hugely progressive in recent times and has racked up five wins from his last six outings, but this is tougher again, and he could just falter. Third in the Ascot Stakes, Elysian Flame has shown to relish these sort of events, but upped 2lb for that Royal Ascot run he could be another that just finds it tough to get his head in front.

One contender lining up that has been finding it tough to bag a win is the hugely consistent Ian Williams-trained The Grand Visir, who was last seen finishing second in the Coral Marathon at Sandown. Prior to that he was third in the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot, and his runner-up finish in the Chester Cup is another smart piece of form. Fourth in this race 12 months ago, the seven-year-old lines up off the same mark in the 2021 running, and if he can hold a prominent position throughout then he can kick clear and claim glory.

15:00 Glorious Goodwood - Unibet Golden Mile Handicap

Things get no easier for punters at 15:00 with one of the betting heats of the entire week lighting up the south coast downs and a plethora of challengers will fancy landing the Unibet Golden Mile Handicap. John & Thady Gosden's Magical Morning was an impressive winner of the Coral Challenge at Sandown last time out, and the four-year-old will look to follow that up here and notch up back-to-back wins.

He will have a penalty to carry in this contest, but he has to be considered a major challenger, however, it could be the Mark Johnston-trained Maydanny, who finished three-quarters-of-a-length behind Magical Morning at Sandown and he can reverse that form. A winner at this Goodwood Festival 12 months ago, Maydanny will run off a mark of 100, which is what he competed off at Sandown earlier in the season. With him weighted more attractively against Magical Morning then Johnston's charge can duly get the better of that rival here, and with course experience looks a great bet.

The likes of Path Of Thunder, who won at Newmarket last time out for Charlie Appleby, has to be a key adversary, but he will have a penalty to defy, while Rhoscolyn and Shelir are another two exciting runners in this thrilling event, but Maydanny is the selection.

15:35 Glorious Goodwood - King George Qatar Stakes

Battaash, Battaash, Battaash. It's all about Battaash....isn't it? Well the four-time winner of this Group 2 contest is bidding for fabulous fifth success in the 5f sprint showpiece of the week, and the Charles Hills-trained speedball is a warm favourite for the Friday showpiece at 15:35.

Dominant in recent seasons in this event, Battaash has simply blown his rivals away at Goodwood, but he could arguably have his toughest test to date, and having failed to land any sort of significant blow in the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot last month, could he finally relinquish his stranglehold on this event?

Unlucky to be demoted in the Commonwealth Cup having past the post first, Dragon Symbol then ran a fine race when second in the July Cup, and he is a player, but a drop back to five furlongs may scupper his chances. One that will enjoy the minimum trip is Art Power, as he lead for a long way in the six-furlong Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot before tiring late on, while there was a similar story in the July Cup as well, as having led for most of that Group 1 the Tim Easterby-trained raider was just outstayed by some classy rivals over six furlongs.

Now, he may not be able to deal with the early dash of Battaash in this contest, but if he can eyeball the Hills sprinter then that could well unearth a possible chink in the armour of the favourite, and with Art Power able to withstand a high speed for a long time then he could well break the reigning champion, and he can claim his well deserved big race success for the season after several knocks at the door.
