It was another superb five days of high-class flat racing on the Downs and the highlights were many.

No-one present will forget in a hurry The Gurkha beating Galileo Gold in the Qatar Sussex Stakes, Big Orange retaining the Qatar Goodwood Cup or Minding easing to a Qatar Nassau Stakes victory.

Then there were returning Goodwood heroes like Take Cover and Hoof It showing that age is no barrier to success on the undulating course.

Below are links to each’s day racing round-up, including picture galleries from the opening day and Ladies’ Day and video reports from the Sussex Stakes and the Nassau Stakes.
