Goodwood a hive of activity ahead of Glorious

There are just four days to go before the 2018 Qatar Goodwood Festival kicks off - and everything is on track for it to be a week to savour.

Last-minute work to complete new facilities around the racecourse is going ahead and staff are hopeful of some rain on Sunday to help moisten the track ahead of Tuesday's opening day.
