The first two fixtures are behind closed doors but crowds of 4,000 are set to be welcomed to the two-day May Festival, on Friday 21 and Saturday 22.

The opening day - on Friday - was dominated by Tom Marquand scoring a treble with victories on Canonized, Warrior Brave and Orin Swift. See some images from the opening day on this page and the ones linked. Pictures are by Clive Bennett - see more at - and don't miss all the Goodwood coverage in Thursday's Chichester Observer.
