If it’s tips for Glorious Goodwood you’re after, you’re in the right place.

For each day of the festival this website will have selections from five top tipsters who will be going head to head for the title of Observer betting champ.

Last year’s contest was won by Hayley Turner, but she’s not involved this year so it’s all to play for.

The 2012 winner Tony Castley - a long-time Goodwood annual member - is out to regain his title and he’s up against Channel 4 Racing pundit Tanya Stevenson, who pushed Hayley close last year.

David Stevens, from bookmakers Corals, ought to know his odds-on favourites from his no-hopers - and talking of no-hopers, Observer sports editor Steve Bone (who says he is ‘either brilliant or terrible at Goodwood tipping, normally the latter’) is having another go.

Also in our line-up is a man who ought to know the track better than most, for he’s Goodwood racecourse managing director - Adam Waterworth.

Come to this website each morning for the famous five’s selections - and tweet @stevebone1 if you think you can do better.
