Timeform is the world leader in the rating of thoroughbred performances and has been the case for a very long time.
Racing and Sports has in its CEO Gary Crispe a highly respected analyst and handicapping expert. But also, he is the Australian representative of Timeform and regular discusses with Timeform in the UK, the various ratings given to horses around the world.
As well as news content and articles relating to various assessments about horses both domestically and internationally, this section has historical statistics from Australia, Season by Season summaries since the Year 2000, Global Rankings and current standings divided into Age Brackets.
Take some time and read the information to get an understanding of the comparison of the great horses in racing.
Don Cossack's unfortunate withdrawal after a tendon injury sustained in his last piece of work appears to leave Cue Card with outstanding claims in the Grade 1 Punchestown Gold Cup.
Cue Card was still going well when falling three out in the latest Gold Cup (rated as finishing second to Don Cossack) and quickly gained compensation with a nine-length success from Gold Cup third Don Poli in the Bowl at Aintree, adding to his wins in the Charlie Hall (following a breathing operation), Betfair Chase and King George earlier in the season. Cue Card was most impressive in the Bowl and he can prove once again that he wasn’t quite himself last season with another victory here.
The Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket has been won by the likes of Sea The Stars, Frankel and Dawn Approach.
However one thing that trio don’t have in common with many winners in that period is the name of the trainer that mastered their Classic preparation.
Trainer Willie Mullins is chasing a fourth success in the Grade 1 Boylesports Champion Chase and there's no doubt that the race revolves around his classy chaser Vautour.
After making a winning return at Ascot in November, Vautour was caught only on the line by Cue Card on his first try over three miles in the King George and quickly returned to winning ways with an easy six-length victory in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham.
The final Grade 1 of the 2015/15 British National Hunt season promises to play a big role in the British trainers’ title race between Paul Nicholls and Willie Mullins.
Mullins – who is currently £45,380 behind Mullins before racing on Tuesday – currently has Vautour , Douvan and Un de Sceaux entered in the Celebration Chase at this stage.
The Scottish Grand National takes centre stage at Ayr on Saturday and, after an Aintree version that failed to provide a telling blow for either yard with hopes of claiming the trainers’ championship, the £210,000 on offer for this weekend’s big race could prove decisive.
Ben Fearnley takes you through all of the latest Timeform ratings after Aintree's Grand National meeting, as well as Leopardstown's first Flat action of the season.
Thanks to the inclusion of multiple Grade 1-winning chasers including the likes of Holywell, Sir des Champs and Silviniaco Conti, as well as last year’s classy winner Many Clouds , who was seemingly better than ever in the run-up to Aintree this season, the 2016 Crabbie's Grand National was widely regarded as the highest-quality renewal yet, and a BHA mark of 145 was required to even get a run in the end.
