Brighton jockey Jason Watson has several chances at Goodwood's three-day May meeting.

Last season's champion apprentice from Lewes rode Dominus to victory on the opening day of the new campaign at the Sussex course earlier this month.

Watson goes head-to-head on Thursday in the Jim Barry Handicap on George Baker's Culture with Frankie Dettori, who rides Sucellus trained by Lewes-born John Gosden.

The teenager, now stable jockey to Roger Charlton, also has mounts on Makzeem and Wild Cat for his boss.

Watson is back at Goodwood on Saturday on Charlton's 5-1 shot Extra Elusive in the Listed Festival stakes and on Mazzuri for Pulborough-based Amanda Perrett in another Listed contest.

He said: "I'm still riding lots of winners without my (weight) claim after I lost it towards the back end of last year. I don't think it's too much of a hindrance losing it.

"I am still riding winners, getting rides, so I'm happy with the way it's going.

"It's quite a tricky track (Goodwood), a bit up and down. You can get kind of pegged back quite close home. There are a lot of undulations, bends and turns on the stayers' track to deal with."

The May festival showcases bespoke food and drinks suppliers.

It also launches the course's 'Friends of Goodwood' initiative with Age UK in the climax to Mental Health Awareness week.

Locals otherwise alone and unable to attend can take advantage of a pick-up service to enjoy a day at the races.
