Horse Racing From Home Podcast: Glorious Goodwood Special!

This year's Goodwood Festival begins on Tuesday with the Group 1 Goodwood Cup.
This year's Goodwood Festival begins on Tuesday with the Group 1 Goodwood Cup.

Join Nick Seddon for the latest edition of the HorseRacing From Home Podcast, which looks ahead to this year’s Goodwood Festival and the Galway Festival.

Nick is joined by our resident tipster Chris Baker, who runs through the key races on the first four days of action - with Saturday’s Stewards’ Cup sadly passed over due to a lack of entries.

Tuesday’s feature is the Group 1 Goodwood Cup, which Stradivarius is aiming to win for a fourth time. He faces a tough task, though, and will have to concede 15 lb to this year’s Irish Derby winner Santiago.

The Group 1 Sussex Stakes headlines Wednesday’s card, and we’re set for a stellar renewal this year. Chris provides his thoughts on each of the runners, including Siskin, Kameko, Mohaather and Circus Maximus.

Twenty-four hours later is a red hot Group 1 Nassau Stakes, and five of the eight-strong field arrive here with a Group 1 win under their belts, including last year’s winner Deirdre. Also on the card is the Group 3 Gordon Stakes, and Chris gives his views on a contest full of horses from the Epsom Derby. 

Glorious Goodwood Day 1 Tips

Friday is headlined by the Group 2 King George Stakes, and we look at whether Battaash can win this for the fourth year in a row, and justify 5/2-on favouritism in the process.

Lastly, Chris hops into the presenter’s chair and puts the pressure on Nick, who takes us through the two main races over in Ireland at this week’s Galway Festival; the Galway Plate on Wednesday and the Galway Hurdle on Thursday.

A special thanks to our partners Paddy Power, who have very kindly sponsored this week's episode of the podcast. Head over to www.paddypower.com for a week full of offers and enhancements for all five days of Glorious Goodwood (and all seven days of the Galway Festival).
