Spring Forecasts: The Three-Year-Olds

More Radiant is on track for top-line success

Racing And Sports' Adam Blencowe highlights the first of his 'Horses To Follow' into this spring with the three-year-olds the first to come under notice.

As the new season approaches we are bound to partake in predictions about the racing year ahead.

Taghrooda Can Repay Backers In Full

Taghrooda wins the Oaks

Can Taghrooda take the King George on Saturday? Timeform's Alex Cairns looks ahead to feature race this weekend.

This year's renewal is a real crossroads between three-year-olds and older horses, established Group 1 performers and interlopers, colts and fillies.

Timeform Are Siding With Kingman

Kingman wins the St James's Palace Stakes

It's not a great betting race, but that's not the point argues Joe Rendall as he restates Timeform's allegiance to Kingman over Toronado in the Sussex Stakes.

We’re departing from a conventional ante-post offering this week for a piece with a more discursive feel. The subject under consideration is next Wednesday’s Sussex Stakes, but we must start with a brief and slightly curmudgeonly aside. Three times in the last four years this contest has been given the increasingly ridiculous moniker of ‘The Duel On The Downs’, and I for one find it intensely irritating. It’s all very well to imbue racing with more of this ‘overarching narrative’ we keep hearing about but in reality only last year’s contest between Dawn Approach and Toronado can be legitimately described in such terms.

Tiggy rushes to the front

Tiggy WIggy runs second at Royal Ascot

Keith Melrose reports on Timeform's new leading two-year-old after a weekend that delivered some unexpectedly classy fare.

This week’s Ratings Update was supposed to be the night shift: it’s that weekend between the July meeting and Goodwood where sub-Group two-year-olds contest the big race in Britain and Aidan O’Brien’s second- or third-best middle-distance filly wins the Irish Oaks.

5YO+ Timeform Review

Atlantic Jewel

Atlantic Jewel is the rose between two thorns at the top of Timeform’s Ranking Chart for the older horses in season 2013/14.

Not seen at the races due to injury since winning the 2012 All Aged Stakes as a three-year-old, many wondered whether Atlantic Jewel would ever make it back to the races.

Ratings Update: Tiggy To The Top

Tiggy Wiggy challenging in the Queen Mary

Keith Melrose reports on Timeform's new leading two-year-old after a weekend that delivered some unexpectedly classy fare.

This week’s Ratings Update was supposed to be the night shift: it’s that weekend between the July meeting and Goodwood where sub-Group two-year-olds contest the big race in Britain and Aidan O’Brien’s second- or third-best middle-distance filly wins the Irish Oaks.

Bank on Criquette Head-Maarek's filly

Kool Kompany

John Ingles looks ahead to the Prix Robert Papin on Sunday.

Sunday’s Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte, the top two-year-old race of the season so far in France, has attracted a field of just five. But while it’s a race that’s lacking in numbers, there’s no shortage of interest, with proven Group-race performers up against rivals who have shown potential to be competitive at this level.

Irish Oaks Preview

Taghrooda wins the Oaks

Joe Rendall heads across the Irish Sea to preview action at the Curragh on a quiet weekend for UK racing…

And breathe. With the World Cup over, Wimbledon behind us, a rest day for the Tour de France and the next test-match and Open Championship not starting until Thursday, it’s time for sports fans across the land can to take a well-deserved cooling break. It’s a quiet week for racing too before the King George and Glorious Goodwood take the British turf season through the turn and into its back nine, and if you’re worried that Saturday’s equine fare requires extensive form study (as last weekend’s certainly did) then fear not. Your moment of calm won’t be interrupted for long, as the answer to the Irish Oaks question is really quite simple: Taghrooda.

Sprinters still submissive to Power

Slade Power

Keith Melrose reports on the big handicapping performances from the July meeting and beyond.

Late on Sunday evening, Germany realised the superiority most imagined them to have over the 31 other teams in the World Cup without having to produce their best on the night. Those who had watched the July Cup had probably felt a similar sensation already that weekend. Slade Power is sprinting’s Germany: relatively young, admirably consistent in executing the game plan laid out for him, and very much a champion.

4YO Timeform Review - 2013/14

Lankan Rupee

As a number of big name performers exit racing at season's end, the highest rated galloper to have graced Australian tracks in 2013/14 will continue on.

Lankan Rupee’s 2013/14 season culminated with a scintillating victory in the Group 1 T J Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick which yielded an impressive new master Timeform rating for the gelding of 132.
