True Destiny 7/2 FAV in Glorious Goodwood Handicap Racing Odds

The market leader is TRUE DENSITY at 7/2 for race 2 of Wednesday’s Glorious Goodwood Festival* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 19:32 GMT on Tuesday, 28th July 2020). Last year he placed in this race.

So there will be at least some place claims for him. True Destiny won three times last year and has looked sharp since his return to action.

He opened on his return with a second place and then was held up a bit in the Marsh Cup but took third.

He’s still on the up and warrants respect in this contest.


William Hill

Summer Moon can rise to the occasion

There is a decent challenge in the making for SUMMER MOON who is the current 13/2 second favourite* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 19:32 GMT on Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

He returned to action with a very good place finish at the Ascot Stakes. He should have pushed on from there but he wasn’t at his best in the Henry II Stakes on his last effort at Sandown.

But if that can be overlooked for the brilliant run he did at Royal Ascot, then he should have some claims.

Coeur de Lion can’t roar at Glorious Goodwood

Having scored in the Ascot Stakes at Royal Ascot COEUR DE LION is worth keeping on side.

He likes a good test of stamina and has to be a threat in this field from 7/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 19:32 GMT on Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

He does take on an extra 3lb for this race now but he stays with the visor that he wore for the first time in getting that Ascot win.

Coeur De Lion is a good prospect here and can get in the mix and has Summer Moon and Smart Champion behind him at Ascot.

Will Smart Champion prove to be a savvy pick?

SMART CHAMPION was in the Ascot Stakes where he fourth but putting on a great burst of power at the end to get that position.

He then took on the challenge of the Northumberland Plate and was all out of sorts there finishing down the field.

But if that can be excused then he should pose a threat from an 8/1 current quote* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 19:32 GMT on Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

Oleg seeking a hattrick

A wind operation seems to have done the power of good for OLEG who is in form at the moment.

Trained by Paul Nicholls he is at 8/1 to claim the win* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 19:32 GMT on Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

Oleg goes up another 3lb now because of those recent handicap wins, which were under staying conditions at Southwell and Pontefract.

He could have a say in this even though he is coming up against some much stiffer opposition in this one.

Others to note

THE GRAND VISIR is at the top of the weights for this race. The son of Frankel comes in following a second place finish on his return to action. That was just over a month ago at the Queen Alexandra Stakes.

MUKHA MAGIC needs to get some improvement on the board this week. He’s actually not been in bad form really and posted a hattrick earlier this season. Can he do it in a tough company however?

STONIFIC has won his last two efforts, but will be heading to Glorious Goodwood with a 3lb penalty because of that. He has switched back to the flat from hurdles and has looked good for it. Those two wins were at the 2m distance so needs to find more on this extra trip.

SEINESATIONAL was runner up twelve months ago in the 2019 renewal. What will he have under his belt for this year’s run? He hasn’t been in the greatest of moods on his return to action but on his day is a handy challenger.

Predictions & Tips for Glorious Goodwood Handicap Racing Odds

This is a wide-open field really as there are plenty of claims around. We are going to pull towards COEUR DE LION as our pick for Goodwood racing odds for this fixture.

He just had that score at Royal Ascot and even though he goes up in weight, he could still be a major player on the back of his Ascot Stakes form.

SMART CHAMPION can’t be overlooked because of a poor effort in the Northumberland Plate. He was in the mix at the Ascot Stakes where he was coming on strongly at the end.

The other that we are going to pick as a contender is OLEG. Yes he has a lot more on his plate but looks refreshed after wind surgery and has shown good efforts in recent staying handicaps.
