We take a look through the Goodwood Cup odds, where Stradivarius is odds-on to win at Glorious Goodwood for the fourth year in a row.

Some would say that Stradivarius meteoric rise to the head of the staying ranks started here at Glorious Goodwood in 2017. Fresh off a sparkling victory in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot, John Gosden’s star claimed his first Group One title in the Goodwood Cup, beating favourite Big Orange in excellent fashion.

Two more Goodwood Cups and three Royal Ascot Gold Cups later, Stradivarius will return to Sussex and attempt to become the first horse to win this Group One for the fourth time in a row. The bookmakers were taking no chances when the entries were revealed, instantly installing Stradivarius as the 1/2 favourite.

Stradivarius main opposition will come in the form of Santiago. Aidan O’Brien’s colt followed in the favourite’s footsteps by winning the Queen’s Vase at Ascot this year. Santiago then claimed Classic glory in the Irish Derby, and will take in the Goodwood Cup before targeting the St Leger.

Nayef Road produced a career-best performance to finish second in the 2020 Ascot Gold Cup, but still has a whopping ten lengths to find on Stradivarius. 

Spanish Mission will make his second start over two miles, having gone down narrowly to Dashing Willoughby in the Henry VII Stakes at Sandown.

Tom Marquand has already been jocked up on Who Dares Wins, as Alan King throws his talented eight-year-old into Group One company for the first time on British soil. 

Eagles By Day will also jump up to the highest level for the first time, following that impressive triumph in the Silver Cup Stakes at York.

The field for the feature race on day one of Glorious Goodwood is rounded off by Euchen Glen, who hasn’t won since landing the John Smith’s Cup at York in 2018.
