Top Performers Of The Season So Far

The recent Ebor Meeting at York was a great success in many respects: in terms of competitive racing; in terms of good weather and good crowds.

Spring Forecasts: A Guineas Hopeful For Bart?

Hallowed Crown powers away with the Kindergarten

Racing And Sports' Adam Blencowe follows up his latest spring forecast with a look at a potential Guineas chance for the Bart and James Cummings' stable.

In our first {http://www.racingandsports.com.au/en/timeform/spring-forecasts-the-three-year-olds-story-308496|spring forecast|1} we looked at a couple of ways to make solid predictions with lightly raced horses heading into the spring, highlighting how quickly we can get a reasonable guide on a horses ability, and some ways in which to project possible future outcomes.

York Ebor Ratings Update Part 2

Taghrooda beaten at York

In the second of his two-part review of last week’s action at York, Tony McFadden looks back on the classic generation and older horses.

The Yorkshire Oaks has been won by some exceptional fillies down the years – Midday and The Fugue are recent winners– and, in all likelihood, we saw a very smart winner this time around as Tapestry sprung a surprise to defeat 1/5 favourite Taghrooda by half a length.

York Ebor Ratings Update Part 1

Tiggy Wiggy accounts for Lowther Stakes

In the first of a two-parter, Tony McFadden looks back on last week’s action from York and tries to unveil any classic clues.

The Group 2 Lowther Stakes looked a high-class race on paper, featuring a clash between Royal Ascot winners Anthem Alexander and Cursory Glance, along with wide-margin Super Sprint scorer Tiggy Wiggy, and viewers were not disappointed as the big three pulled clear of some promising juveniles.

Timeform Recap: Randwick – August 23

Tiger Tees

Randwick belonged to Joe Pride last Saturday courtesy of a team led by stable stars Tiger Tees and Terravista.

The eight race Warwick Stakes Day program possessed five stakes races and while they were all hit by scratchings, some of Sydney’s best still fronted up at the meeting.

York Ebor Festival Preview: Saturday

The Ebor is the highlight on the final day at York

Timeform's Chief Correspondent shares his views on the closing day of York's 2014 Ebor Festival...

It's exam results time, when students have a nervous wait to see if they've done enough to get that place they've worked towards all year, if not their whole life. Some sail, some fail, and some inhale, holding their breath for last-minute confirmation as it hangs in the balance. If you listen carefully, you can hear the sigh of relief from Mighty Yar, who has scraped in, number 20 of 20, to give him a shot at the big time in the Ebor.

York Ebor Festival Preview: Friday

Cavalryman winning at Newmarket

Jamie Lynch looks towards day three of York's Ebor Festival where the Lonsdale Cup and the Nunthorpe are the features.

He's been around a long time, was once formidable, has gone through ups and downs in his career, but is staging a later-life resurgence in the Godolphin blue, proving himself a stayer. With their parallel profiles, it's perhaps no wonder Cavalryman and Kieren Fallon clicked upon first meeting at Goodwood last month. Points were proved by both horse and rider when winning the Goodwood Cup, and they come to the Lonsdale at 2.30 as the team to beat, but with a target on their back this time.

York Ebor Festival Preview: Thursday

Taghrooda wins the Epsom Oaks

The fillies take centre-stage on the second day of the 2014 Ebor Festival, and Jamie Lynch assesses the action.

Not since Frankel, and not much before Frankel, have we seen a Group 1 being used as a lap of honour, but that’s the case with Taghrooda in the Yorkshire Oaks. The brilliant Taghrooda is one of the best middle-distance fillies of any era, not just this one, and there’s a ferocity behind the femininity, as the older boys discovered in the King George.

York Ebor Festival Preview: Wednesday

Australia takes on his elders for the first time at York

Timeform's Chief Correspondent Jamie Lynch provides you with his thoughts on the first day of York's 2014 Ebor Festival.

The racecourse comes in as low down as 24th in TripAdvisor’s rankings of York tourist attractions, but for this week it’s number one in the city, and number one in the sporting world, because the dazzling Ebor Festival is here…and it starts with a bang.

Timeform Review: Rosehill – August 16


Nostradamus has recorded the most important win of his career with success in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes at Rosehill last Saturday.

The Team Hawkes-trained colt jumped beautifully and while he could have taken up the running, jockey James McDonald elected to ease him with the pair settled fourth.
