One of the highlights of the racing calendar in the UK is of course the Glorious Goodwood racing festival, and having started a couple of days ago many people have booked their summer holidays around this race meeting and are staying at hotels near the racecourse.

Whist the on the first day the weather did hold up, yesterday on day two the heavens opened and that did of course have an effect on the going at the course.

One thing that sadly has not been happening this year is that the favourites have not been winning as many races as punters would have hoped for, and that in turn has meant that the only people leaving the racecourse each day with a big smile of their faces are the bookies on the course!

The same can be said for both online and mobile betting site operators, for they have also been cashing in on the Glorious Goodwood festival this year!

Let us hope that today sees something of a reversal of fortune for the hard pressed punters who have been avidly placing their bets and wagers on each race on the course! Today is of course day three of this five day festival of racing, so there is still plenty of time for you to try and get your losses back if you have not selected any winners so far!

One thing worth knowing if you do fancy placing any bets and wagers on Glorious Goodwood this year is that many online and mobile betting sites are offering some surprisingly generous bonuses and promotional offers to anyone who sign up to their betting sites or makes use of their betting apps for the very first time.

Also, be aware that many bookmakers and betting sites are also offering early prices on all of the races that are scheduled to take place at Goodwood today, and you will find plenty of bookmakers are also offering guaranteed odds races.

Those are races whereby you can take a price being offered by a bookmaker, but if the odds of yours election are higher at Sp if of course your horse wins, then instead of your being paid out at the lower odds you took earlier in the day, the bookmaker will pay you out at the higher SP odds instead.

With that in mind e would always advise anyone who does fancy placing any type of horse racing best and wagers today, especially on the race meeting at Goodwood, to hunt around the internet and compare the odds being offered to you and the additional promotional offers and bonuses too.

You can often lock in a lot of betting value by either spreading your betting action around or by you choosing to sign up to a range of different betting sites and betting apps you have never used before and claiming their respective sign up welcome bonus offers!
