Brian Meehan seems super confident of at least one Glorious Goodwood this afternoon with four horses set for action.
The trainer is sending out Supernova Heights to contest the on day three with great hopes that his charge will land the spoils in the E.B.F. British Stallion Studs New Ham Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

The two-year-old, who is at 4.00 to win, faces a highly competitive field but made a highly impressive debut at Newmarket last month and clearly improvement is on the cards.
With Kieren Fallon on board and drawn reasonably in eight, Meehan is unashamedly bullish over the filly's chance declaring: "That was a very hot maiden and she did very well. She is now primed to gain a first victory in this company."
Secret Sign is at 21.00 in the and according to the trainer has been working very well and certainly deserves a shot at this Group Two event.
His Aaim To Prosper, who is at 51.00 in the , is a stable favourite and has been making consistent progress in each of his runs - the last of them warranting a 4lb rise in the official ratings.
Meehan said: "This horse is always in with a chance in these Cup races and has definite each way claims."
Of Diamondhead, at 34.00 in the , he said: "He needed his delayed run over an inadequate six furlongs at Newmarket last time. He should be much closer to the action this time."
