Bookmakers are offering free bets and special offers for this year’s Glorious Goodwood meeting from Tuesday 27 July until Saturday 31 July. Glorious Goodwood regularly offers punters one of the best weeks of racing and this year’s line up looks as exciting as ever. There is quality to be found throughout the cards at this prestigious meeting in Sussex. It kicks off on the first day with the seven-furlong Betfair Cup looking the pick of the bunch. Wednesday sees one of the feature races, the Sussex Stakes, favoured by the top mile specialists in Europe. Early money has pushed Canford Cliffs into the favourite’s position, priced at 4/6 with Betfred. However, this might be in reaction to rumours of Dick Turpin’s withdrawal rather than any obvious superiority of the Richard Hannon-trained 3-year-old. Other races to watch out for include the Goodwood Cup on Ladies Day and the valuable Totesport Mile on Friday. The final day brings forth a powerful-looking field in the Nassau Stakes, followed swiftly by the Stewards’ Cup which promises a competitive encounter. Blue Square are sponsoring Glorious Goodwood and they are also offering 10% cashback on losing bets at the festival, up to a maximum of £25. They are also offering a Top Jockey market for Goodwood, with Ryan Moore priced as the 11/10 favourite, followed by Richard Hughes at 7/4 and Frankie Dettori at 10/1. Elsewhere you can still get some excellent free bets for opening new accounts, with offers galore available. Bet £10 and get £20 free with Paddy Power, take advantage of a free bet of up to £50 with Betfred, or grab hold of the massive £200 free bet on offer with bet365 (see our Betting Offers section for full details as well as more offers and bonuses).
