The free 64-page special contains all the essential information about the five days of top-class racing planned on the Downs from Tuesday, July 26, to Saturday 30.

There are interviews with the people who make the festival tick and a profile of some of the racing figures who are out to make the headlines.

There’s a full day-by-day guide to the races, with their times, distances and values, and a look at events that will add to the week’s spectacle like the Magnolia Cup ladies’ charity race and the cricket match to be played for the Alan Lee Memorial Trophy - and much more.

We look at the history of some of the festival’s most famous races and meet Goodwood’s official milliner, as well as celebrating clerk of the course Seamus Buckley’s amazing 50 years in horse racing.

You can pick up a copy at a number of Chichester city centre outlets, including the Glorious Spa Company in South Street, Ladbrokes in South Street, Trents in South Street, the library or Novium Museum in Tower Street, Coral in North Street, Good News newsagents in Little London, Dartagnan Menswear in East Street, Nisa Local in East Street.

From the first day of Glorious, you’ll be able to pick up a copy outside Chichester railway station - where shuttle buses to the racecourse will be running - and at the racecourse itself.
