The Goodwood 2017

Saturday May 20, 2017

Ladbrokes Tip: Mares often back-up in The Goodwood off the Robert Sangster Stakes

First contested in 1881, The Goodwood is a Group 1 race held in May during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival for sprinters. Contested at Morphettville Racecourse the event is contested over 1200m and offers a total of a lucrative $1 million in prize money.

Formerly a handicap event known as The Goodwood Handicap, the race is now run at set weights plus penalties and the most recent sponsorship sees the race known as the Darley Goodwood.

It takes place a week after the Group 1 South Australian Derby (2400m) and a fortnight after the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for fillies and mares, which is a traditional lead-up into The Goodwood for female sprinters. Recent winners of the Robert Sangster Stakes – The Goodwood double include Black Caviar (2012) and Platelet (2013).

The latest edition of The Goodwood ran on Saturday May 20, 2017.

The Goodwood Betting

The Goodwood betting odds are usually led by the season’s top performing sprinters, especially in-form mares that ran well in the Robert Sangster Stakes last start.

Proven form in Adelaide is good, but not crucial with plenty of runners coming out of interstate runs like the TJ Smith Stakes in Sydney or Melbourne’s Newmarket Handicap that autumn.

Favourites in The Goodwood odds only have a fair recent record, so looking for value in markets is key. The only favourites to salute since Keeper (2001) are Takeover Target (2009), superstar Black Caviar (2012) and Black Heart Bart (2016).

2017 The Goodwood Odds

The latest The Goodwood 2017 betting odds will be available right here across the autumn so check back for the updated prices on your favourites to win this season’s The Goodwood in Adelaide.

The Goodwood Field

The Goodwood race field is made up of classy local and interstate sprinters, many gearing up for similar features in Queensland during the following Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Horses trained outside of South Australia have a strong recent record in the race, and gallopers come off a variety of different lead-ups from right around Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide. Fillies and mares traditionally come out of the Robert Sangster Stakes at the same track and distance a fortnight early, which produced three of the six The Goodwood winners from 2010 – 2016.

Nominations for The Goodwood are taken on the Tuesday of the week prior to the race, while the final The Goodwood field of acceptors is out the Tuesday of race week.

The Goodwood Betting Tips

There is plenty of value to be found doing The Goodwood tips as upsets in Adelaide’s premier sprint race are not uncommon.

Fillies and mares have a strong recent record in the race winning all four editions from 2010 – 2013, so looking for the best out of the Robert Sangster Stakes two weeks earlier is a good The Goodwood betting tip.

Wide barriers aren’t a hindrance as Flamberge saluted in 2015 from 16 of 17, so instead look for Group 1 performed horses at the 1200m distance. The other top The Goodwood tip is to lay the favourite based on their poor recent record in the classic.

2017 The Goodwood Tips

The Ladbrokes’ insider The Goodwood 2017 betting tips and Morphettville race selections on the May classic will be detailed right here the week of the race so stay tuned for the top sprinters to back for a win in the Group 1.

The Goodwood Form Guide

The Goodwood race form guide revels to punters all the relevant information they need to place a successful bet on the race like the barriers, jockeys, trainers and lead-up form of all the runners in the field.

Interstate raiders have a strong record in the race, so looking at in-form horses from stables outside of Adelaide on The Goodwood form can be a good idea. The most successful The Goodwood barriers in recent history are gates seven and eight, so look for these on the form, but don’t rule out widely drawn runners as outside barriers have produced a number of winners in the past decade.

The Goodwood Form Facts

  • Plenty of roughies have scored recent upsets in The Goodwood results so look for value in the markets
  • The Robert Sangster Stakes has produced a number of recent female sprinters to win The Goodwood
  • Interstate visitors have a strong record winning The Goodwood
