  • The Handicap For Three Year Olds Over Six Furlongs
  • 2019 Stewards Cup Odds – Open Wide 16/1 At Bet365
  • Justanotherbottle And Growl Fancy Their Second Run

With every horse under the sun still having a hoof in the ring for this one, picking a winner may seem to  require a modicum of precognition, however in the Stewards Cup odds Open Wide gets a tempting price and it’s not the only runner to do so. Bet365, one of the best online sportsbook sites in the UK at present, are offering some great prices on the likely entrants and, if you want a proper price, now’s the time to dive in and select your wager before those odds get slashed.

Back in the 1830s the Stewards at Goodwood could simply award a cup to whichever horse they felt deserving until Lord George Bentinck rocked up and established a race proper for the cup over six furlongs, meaning this one dates back to 1840, the very year Queen Victoria got married. Traditionally it was held on the first day of the Glorious Goodwood festival but these days is a highlight of the final day and this year the Stewards Cup odds open wide to accept all comers.

The Stewards Cup odds open wide and stay there. When even the favorite is 10/1 you know that there’s still a massive element of uncertainty about this one. Naturally there will be some who’ll put this down to the changeable British weather however there’s every reason to think the bookies, like Bet365, just aren’t sure which way this one is going to go, and that leaves room for the rest of us to take advantage of UK gambling laws and feather our nests a little at Goodwood.

Flavius Titus Could Be Best Sprint Bet Of Goodwood

 With no one yet willing to say they’ll not be entering there are a lot of spurious prices out there but things really only start to get interesting at around the 20/1 mark. Sure you can go for a longer priced wager but whilst the Stewards Cup odds open wide, even they might have a hard time swallowing some of the longer shots being offered up.Growl gets 20/1 and it rolled home 3rd last year, a price it shares with Acecibo, Air Raid, Kick On Kick On, Cold Stare and Richenza.

2019 Stewards Cup Favorites

  • Vanbrugh – 20/1
  • Growl – 20/1
  • Gulliver – 20/1
  • Richenza – 20/1
  • Cold Stare – 20/1
  • Air Raid – 20/1
  • Kick On Kick On – 20/1
  • Arecibo – 20/1
  • Spanish City – 16/1
  • Gunmetal – 16/1
  • Cosmic Law – 16/1
  • Open Wide – 16/1
  • Baron Bolt – 16/1
  • Khaadem – 14/1
  • Flavius Titus – 14/1
  • Justanotherbottle – 10/1

Gulliver also gets that 20/1 slot as does Vanbrugh but the Stewards Cup odds Open Wide attracts are slightly better at 16/1, although the bookies like Bet365 give Cosmic Law, Baron Bolt, Gunmetal and Spanish City the same price. Any of these could snaffle a place finish on the day, especially if the conditions are mixed, so if you’re looking for an each-way wager it could well be one of these that is the best bet on sports in the UK for you. As for picking a winner, well…

Stewards Cup Odds Open Wide At Bet365 This Year

 Justanotherbottle,last year’s 2nd place finisher doesn’t really appear to justify that 10/1 favorite status its enjoying. With a pair of miserable finishes at York this summer that 236 day break it took apparently did it no good at all, which means if you want to put anything on the nose in this one you’re going to have to look elsewhere or face disappointment. That’s where Khaadem and Flavius Titus come into the picture at 14/1, but which of them is the best pick? Let’s have a look.

Arkle Challenge Trophy

  • Date: August 3rd2019
  • Track: Goodwood Racecourse
  • Location: Sussex, UK
  • Distance: 6F (1,207m)
  • Type: Flat
  • Qualification: 3 year olds+
  • Weights: Handicap
  • Surface: Turf
  • Purse: £250,000


Well Khaadem got 2nd at Newbury two weeks ago over this distance, and indeed won over it back in May, however it didn’t fare as well at Ascot and could be a let down at Goodwood too. Flavius Titus meanwhile is a far better prospect having won two of its last three races and placing in the third. So, if you’re going to hit up Bet365, one of the best online betting sites in the UK, that should be the horse you back to win, and the Stewards Cup odds Open Wide gets to place.
