The time had arrived - the best horse racing festival of the lot could begin.
It was day one of five at Glorious Goodwood and we were all set for another memorable week of action on the Downs.
The weather left a little to be desired as the festival got under way but that didn’t stop a large crowd enjoying the action as some of the world’s best horses, jockeys and trainers battled for honours on the first day.

You can join in with your tips, comments and questions on the blog, which will be live on each day of Glorious.
