Sectional Preview: Glorious Goodwood 2016
Simon Rowlands previews the Glorious Goodwood 2016 from a sectional timing point of view.
Goodwood’s midsummer meeting – traditionally referred to as Glorious Goodwood – may not have quite the cachet of the Cheltenham Festival in March or the international pull of Royal Ascot in June, but it stands on its own feet as an event of significance in the Racing Calendar.
In among some fiercely competitive handicaps and some “they-could-be-anything” maidens, there is a healthy smattering of Group races. Finding winners can be difficult, and this preview will look at the sectional evidence in an attempt to assist.
First, though, an overview of what it tends to take to run well at the track, a tricky and undulating switchback, at which much of the closing stages are downhill but the final furlong rises slightly.
