124 more pictures from Goodwood Ladies' Day - plus our Friday tips

Day four of the Qatar Goodwood Festival features a competitive seven-race for punters to enjoy.

The action gets under way at 1.50pm and concludes at 5.20pm. The ground is Good, Good to Firm in places and the forecast is for a cloudy day. We have previewed the pick of the action and you can find the best odds on the SBK Sportsbook App.

The feature event is the £300,000 Group Two King George Qatar Stakes over five furlongs. Course and distance scorer Raasel commands plenty of respect as he continues his upward progression. He has improved with every run and has to be respected following a smooth win in Group company at Sandown last time out. Khaadem also boasts winning form at the track as done Acklam Express who bounced back to form when third in the King’s Stand Stakes.

Mitbaahy had impressed when winning a Listed event at Sandown in June and therefore commands respect having only been narrowly beaten back at the same venue last time out.

Equilateral was third at the Curragh in Group company last time out and is another name to note along with Lazuli who landed a Group event at Meydan in February and was ninth on his domestic return at Royal Ascot in the Diamond Jubilee.

The £100,000 Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes (2.25pm) over a mile has attracted a competitive field which includes Bayside Boy. He looked a nice prospect when third in a pair of Group Ones last term, but has disappointed in two runs this term at Longchamp in the French 2000 Guineas, before his seventh in the St James’s Palace Stakes. However, there was a sign of a revival at Royal Ascot last time out and he has to be of interest.

Checkandchallenge had progressed rapidly on the All-Weather having won his first two starts. Well-beaten in the 2000 Guineas, he then was not disgraced when second in a handicap event at Sandown last time out. He could have tons of improvement still to come and he is a fascinating runner along with Berkshire Shadow who was third at Newmarket last time out having finished fifth and sixth respectively in the 2000 Guineas and the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot earlier on this season.

The £150,000 Golden Mile Handicap at 3.00pm is another ultra-competitive event in which Godolphin look to have a strong hand. Noble Dynasty impressed on his first start since a gelding operation when scoring by two lengths at Newmarket earlier this month for Charlie Appleby, whilst Saeed bin Suroor has an interesting runner in the shape of Shining Blue who has won all three of his starts and commands respect. Jimi Hendrix was a winner at Newmarket earlier this month and is another name to note along with the progressive Montassib in this event.
