The third day of Glorious Goodwood has three more Group races for racing fans to look forward to, kicking off with the Richmond Stakes.

ASYMMETRIC (5/2) carries some strong form into the contest, including a success over C&D back in June.

The Showcasing colt landed victory on his debut in West Sussex, seeing off Mojomaker by half a length.

Alan King’s runner followed that up with another success two weeks later at Newmarket, before finishing a head second in the July Stakes.

He kept on well in the final stages of the latter contest and looks very capable of striking in Group company.

GUBBASS (7/2) is given his first opportunity of claiming some black type, following victories on his first two starts for Richard Hannon.

The Mehmas colt carries some strong form into the contest, as he beat Vintage Stakes winner Angel Bleu by five lengths on debut at Leicester before keeping on well to win by half a length in the Super Sprint Stakes at Newbury.

He is unexposed over six furlongs, but the two-year-old looks to have more in the locker.

PERFECT POWER (4/1) carries a 3lb penalty into this contest after his Royal Ascot success in the Norfolk Stakes for Richard Fahey.

The two-year-old broke his maiden at Hamilton in June before producing a smart performance in Berkshire last month, seeing off some promising sorts over the minimum distance.

The step up to six furlongs shouldn’t cause any issues, but he does have to give weight to all of his rivals.

EBRO RIVER (6/1) should appreciate the softer conditions here for Hugo Palmer, while Clive Cox’s CATURRA (11/1) just did enough to claim success in the Irish Rose Bowl Stakes at Newbury two weeks ago.

KHUNAN (12/1) joins stablemate Perfect Power for Richard Fahey and Kevin Ryan’s GIS A SUB (14/1) broke his maiden at Pontefract over this distance last month.
