As one of the feature race meetings of the UK season, Glorious Goodwood has very similar tipping criteria to that of Royal Ascot, as many of the runners perform at both meetings.
It is a good meeting however for favourite backers, where there is approximately a 30% strike rate. In fact for Stakes races for four year olds and above there is something like a 40% strike rate. Unfortunately many of the favourites are very short priced so profit margins are not anywhere near as good as Royal Ascot. In fact for best profits at Glorious Goodwood, punters should look at the 3yo Handicaps; these show a distinct profit.
Trainers who have most winners are Richard Hannon, John Gosden, Mick Channon, Mark Johnston and Saeed Bin Suroor and more recently Aiden O’Brien. All six of these trainers have excellent strike rates at the meeting. Bin Suroor of Godolphin has a particularly high strike rate of 27%. Best trainer for profit with online bookmakers however is Brian Smart who horses have shown a profit of well over 100%.
Top jockey, unsurprisingly is Frankie Dettori but despite having most winners and best strike rate, he is not necessarily profitable. William Buick in fact the claimer has best profit mark but he will be losing his claim any time soon.Posted 9 years, 8 months ago
