Get all the info to bash the bookies as ITV’s Matt Chapman runs you through the opening day of Glorious Goodwood
THE ITV cameras are at Goodwood for five days of action Tuesday-Saturday this week so I’ll have a blog out each day as we try to top up all our Enable winnings!
I hope you lumped on the King George winner.
The coverage Tuesday starts with the 1.50pm, a handicap over nearly 1m2f on easy ground.

I expect a big run at tasty odds from OASIS FANTASY, who goes well with cut in the ground and stays strongly.
Jamie Spencer rides from a good draw for David Simcock and he could hit the frame at a good price. A few quid each-way.
It’s the Group 2 Vintage Stakes for juveniles over 7f at 2.25pm, and the one to be with here is MILDENBERGER, who is proven on trip and ground.
Should get a positive ride and might outstay a few here for Mark Johnston. Another each-way.
It’s the Group 2 Lennox over 7f at 3.00pm, and Limato might just want faster ground.
I’m going to take a chance with DUTCH CONNECTION, who has been in poor form of late but does well at Goodwood and runs on easy ground.
Stall seven is a good draw and Jim Crowley might get a tune for Charlie Hills.
Finally it’s the Group 1 Goodwood Cup at 3.35pm over 2m, and Ascot hero Big Orange will be all the rage to carry on his fine work.
Matt Chapman’s TV tips
1.50 Goodwood – Oasis Fantasy
2.25 Goodwood – Mildenberger
3.00 Goodwood – Dutch Connection
3.35 Goodwood – Higher Power
Of course he can win again, but I’m backing HIGHER POWER each-way. He wasn’t far behind at Sandown earlier this season and is improving.
Back both of them, Big Orange to win and Higher Power each-way.
So best of luck. Let’s hope for a Yeeehaaa in there. You Betcha!
