Latest news on the last day of Glorious Goodwood and day six of seven at Galway

Glorious Goodwood: in all its finery on Friday
1 of 1

Racing is at fives and sixes rather than sixes and sevens today with a feeling festival fever is waning slightly after the week's slog at Goodwood and Galway.

Goodwood's fifth day finishes its 'glorious' meeting with admittedly the handicap of the week in the Unibet Stewards' Cup but just one Group race in the St Leger trial that is the Qatar Gordon Stakes.

Galway goes into day six and, after Premier and Grade A handicaps, it is down to a B and plenty of maiden action which is strange for any Saturday summer card.

Chelmsford starts the day on the all-weather and after Thirsk, Newmarket and Doncaster run alongside Goodwood and Galway, the evening action is at Lingfield and Hamilton.

Final thought 

Come on Camlann. The seven-year-old steps out at Galway for the tenth time over the last four Festivals aiming to follow-up his win on Thursday and he even has an entry tomorrow. What a legend.
