We reveal the three most backed horses on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood.
MIGRATION has been very well backed in the opener after a very eye-catching return at Salisbury last month. The five-year-old had been off the track for 641 days when finishing very strongly at the line after being short of room. The gelding had been backed from 8/1 into 4/1 that day, which made the run even more interesting. He should also handle the testing ground conditions underfoot today.
CREATIVE FORCE is now favourite in the Lennox Stakes ahead of his stablemate Space Blues. The three-year-old has had a fantastic season so far, winning four races on the bounce going from a mark of 89 to 114. His latest effort was a very creditable fifth in the July Stakes. He won on soft ground at Ascot in June so should be fine with the testing ground.
TRUESHAN’s supporters will have been very happy to see all the rain falling at Goodwood at recent days and it’s no surprise to see him as the most backed horse at Goodwood today. The five-year-old was fantastic last season, with his victory in the Long Distance Cup proving a career best when accounting for Stradivarius. They face each other again here for the first time since and punters fancy Trueshan to come out on top again.
