The final Group race on day four of Glorious Goodwood comes in the form of the Glorious Stakes, with a field of nine featuring in the 1m4f contest in Chichester.

MOGUL (11/4) has yet to fire this season for Aidan O’Brien, but the Galileo colt carries C&D form into this contest.

The four-year-old claimed success in the Group 3 Gordon Stakes, seeing the race out strongly to win by three-quarters of a length.

The softer conditions do raise some concerns, however, with his connections hoping the ground continues to dry out.

The well-liked EUCHEN GLEN (4/1) returns to actions following his Listed Gala Stakes success at Sandown earlier in the month.

The tough gelding caught the eye at Ascot when making up plenty of ground in the final stages to take fifth in the Wolferton Stakes.

Jim Goldie’s runner does give weight to all of his rivals here, but he clearly has ability and could well be a threat in this contest.

PASSION AND GLORY (9/2) is given his chance in Group company following two successes in handicaps for Saeed bin Suroor.

The gelding made light work of his rivals over 1m2f, winning by four and six lengths at Lingfield and Ascot.

The five-year-old does have to prove himself over a mile and a half however, after finishing five lengths off the pace in Meydan over this distance.

OUTBOX (10/1) has made steady improvement throughout the season and could strike in this company for Archie Watson, while Andrew Balding’s ALOUNAK (11/1) returns to Group competition following his Old Newton Cup success at Haydock earlier in the month.

PABLO ESCOBARR (12/1) is yet to fire this season for William Haggas and David O’Meara’s EAGLES BY DAY (14/1) could strike on his seasonal reappearance.

WITHOUT A FIGHT (14/1) has finished in the places on his two starts so far this season, while Alounak’s stablemate FOX TAL (22/1) is aiming for his first success in almost two years.
