2022 Stewards Cup Preview
This Stewards Cup first took place in 1840 and was traditionally run on the first day of Glorious Goodwood until 1993 when it was moved to its current Saturday slot for commercial purposes. Open to three-year-old's and upwards over Goodwood's straight-six furlongs, the Stewards Cup field is a sight to behold for sprint handicap enthusiasts with the best part of 25 to 30 runners appearing like the cavalry over the brow after a furlong or so from the starting stalls.
Won by top sprinters down the years like the flying filly Lochsong in 1992 who carried only 8-0, she was one of many who went on to be successful at Group 1 level. The quality of winners has continued in the past ten years with eight of the last nine officially rated between 102 and 111.
To see which runners the OLBG racing tipsters are tipping throughout the card that includes this race, head over to the Goodwood Betting Picks on the day of the race, do they agree with the runners on the trend shortlist or are they predicting other runners?
The runner that holds the record over the past 20 renewals for the slowest time in the race was set in the 2021 renewal when Commanche Falls from Michael Dods who under the guidance of Connor Beasley, won in a time of 1:15.86, whilst at the other end of the spectrum, Gifted Master, trained by Hugo Palmer and ridden by Jason Watson set the quickest time of 1:09.56 in the 2018 renewal.
These are the top three quickest run Stewards Cup over the last 20 renewals:
- 2018 - Gifted Master (1:09.56)
- 2019 - Khaadem (1:09.79)
- 2016 - Dancing Star (1:09.81)
How competitive is the Stewards Cup market? When looking at the over-rounds for the last 20 renewals, the most competitive market was in 2021 when the race had an over-round of 128%. The race in 2013 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 145%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Stewards Cup, the over-round has been 138% that means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £138 which is bet.
