Goodwood will turn on the taps on Tuesday night ahead of day two of the Glorious meeting.

The conditions at the Sussex track were officially described as good to firm on the opening day and clerk of the course Seamus Buckley is planning some light watering to take the "sting" out of the ground.

"We'll put four to five millimetres of water on about 75 per cent of the course after racing," said Buckley.

"The ground has quickened up considerably through the day and it will just help take the sting out if it. Hopefully that will leave us on the easy side of good to firm.

"We are forecast to be dry through to Friday and then we might get some rain from Friday through to Saturday."
