Latest news, views and clues for Goodwood and Galway

Goodwood: the Group 2 King George Stakes is the highlight of day four
1 of 1

How's your week going? We're past halfway at Goodwood and Galway but there is plenty more to come, starting today with a handful of Group races and some valuable big-field handicaps.

The star turn at Glorious Goodwood is high-class sprinter Battaash, who will bid to defend his crown in the Group 2 King George Qatar Stakes (3.35).

On the fifth day of seven at Galway, the action switches back to a late slot with the feature race the €100,000 Guinness Handicap (6.50), for which Limini is turned out again quickly after finishing second on day one of the festival on Monday.

On a bumper day there are also afternoon meetings at Bangor and Thirsk followed by evening fixtures at Newmarket, Musselburgh and Wolverhampton.

Final thought 

Battaash will rightly be centre of attention in the King George Stakes but Take Cover deserves his share of the limelight. The 11-year-old has form figures of 4121 in the race and the romantics will be hoping he shows up well again.
