Glorious Goodwood promises five days of thrilling racing with some of the best horses in Europe set to make an appearance.

Among the stars booked in are Paddington, the best three-year-old colt in Europe, and France’s Blue Rose Cen, arguably the best three-year-old filly.

Paddington, winner of the Coral-Eclipse Stakes last time out, is set to return to a mile for the Qatar Sussex Stakes while Blue Rose Cen takes on older fillies for the first time in the Nassau Stakes.
