Glorious Goodwood: Tis Marvellous primed for Stewards' Cup glory

We've picked out Glorious Goodwood betting tips for every race at this week's five-day spectacular and will be looking to bash the bookies with some value selections on Saturday.

Just like Royal Ascot, the Qatar Goodwood Festival attracts attention both on the racing front and for the elegant fashion on show in Sussex.

However, we're more interested in the action on the turf and have settled on these fancies for the final day of the meeting after searching through the Glorious Goodwood odds.


Disappointed at York last time but had previously put in some encouraging efforts at Newbury, Epsom and Doncaster and the booking of Ryan Moore really catches the eye in this Stewards' Cup consolation race.

Ian Williams knows how to get one ready for a big handicap and his gelding can boast a May 2017 course and distance success among his seven career victories.


Ralph Beckett's charge came with a smooth run to score in emphatic fashion at York last month and should be suited by coming off a strong pace now travelling an extra two furlongs.

Owned and bred by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, he has always been well thought of and seems better than ever at the age of six.


It will be disappointing if the Epsom Derby runner-up doesn't secure a first win of the season in the Group Three Gordon Stakes to boost his St Leger prospects.

Mark Johnston's charge also ran with credit behind Young Rascal in the Chester Vase and was far from disgraced when third to Kew Gardens in the Group One Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp last month.


Looks to have been laid out for the Stewards' Cup since finishing a close fourth of 28 behind Bacchus in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot and that patient approach can pay off.

Was thought good enough to contest the Group One Commonwealth Cup last season and could still make up into a high-class sprinter once everything clicks into place.


Cost ambitious connections 450,000gns as a yearling and is bred to make his mark as a two-year-old. Trainer Richard Hannon picked up a maiden prize on day one of this festival and has an interesting debutant here.


This three-year-old has really got his act together with emphatic victories at Salisbury and Newbury, travelling well throughout both races. Stablemate Restive Spirit is also strongly fancied but our selection may be just further forward at this stage.


Secured three wins in the second half of his juvenile campaign and could now be coming to himself this term judged on a recent third at Newmarket, when doing his best work at the business end, while rider Thore Hammer Hansen is an impressive apprentice.
