Friday’s Glorious Goodwood Horse Racing TipsHorse Racing Tips
There is plenty of decent racing for horse racing fans to enjoy this Friday with action coming from Goodwood, Bath, Bangor-On-Dee, Musselburgh, Newmarket and Thirsk. Over in Ireland, there is racing from Galway. The pick of Friday’s racing comes from Glorious Goodwood where there are four Group races taking place including the Gordon’s King George Stakes. We have found a couple of decent looking bets for today, so on we go with the race previews.
The Betfred Mile is a Heritage Handicap open to horses aged three years and older. It is a class 2 event run over a trip of one mile and a total of 22 runners go to post to battle it out for the £77,812 first prize. Heading the betting at odds of 4/1 is the John Gosden trained Trade Commissioner.
This in form gelding has won his last two starts in impressive fashion and looks like he could be a Group horse in the making. This mile trip seems to be the optimum for the horse and although 4/1 is short enough considering the size of the field, this four year old could well be on his way to bigger and better things.
At much bigger odd, my each way money will be going on Andrew Balding’s Decent Fella at 16/1. This horse has yet to show his best form this season but ran well twice here last year including a win in the Shell House Handicap over seven furlongs back in September. He has a solid chance of being in the first four and looks a stand out each way bet for me.

A Group 2 contest here, the Gordon’s King George Stakes is open to horses aged three years and older and is run over the minimum distance of five furlongs. 17 runners are due to compete for the £56,710 first prize and they are headed in the betting by the Australian raider Ortensia at odds of 4/1.
Man of the moment William Buick again takes the ride on this mare after finishing fourth behind Mayson last month in the July Cup at Newmarket. This is clearly a talented animal but she’s short enough for me at 4s. I’m keen on the chances of the Henry Candy trained Amour Propre as an each way alternative to the favourite.
He was very disappointing at Royal Ascot last time out but has run badly in the past and very well next time. He also finished second in this race last year and comes into the race relatively fresh. The 8/1 makes plenty of appeal.
