The Glorious Goodwood day 1 tips by Mike Cattermole
The Qatar Goodwood Cup was won 3 times by Double Trigger but he did not achieve that feat 3 years running & that is what the extraordinary Big Orange (5/6 Favorite with Sky Bet) attempts to do as he bids to recreate history in the books on the 1st day at Glorious Goodwood.
If we go as per the official ratings, Big O is 5lb clear of his nearest rival & this sort of impact by him with his courageous style of front-running is commendable. He & Frankie Dettori are guaranteed plenty of vocal encouragement from the packed stands on the Downs.
The ground will surely be different to what it was 2 years back, it was good 2 years ago when He beat Quest For More in 2015 & good to firm 12 months ago when the quirky but likeable duo Pallasator & Sheikhzayadroad chased him home.
