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.

Timeform Review: Caulfield - August 16

Star Rolling

Star Rolling has kicked off his Cox Plate campaign with success in the Group 2 P.B Lawrence Stakes at Caulfield last Saturday.

In a sign of spring edging closer, the field assembled for the P.B Lawrence Stakes (1400m) included Group winners such as Foreteller, Lidari and race favourite Puissance De Lune.

Timeform Ebor Preview

Sir Mark Prescott holds a strong hand with Pallasator

With the start of the Ebor Festival less than a week away, Alex Cairns looks at the race which gives the meeting its name.

Normally, you might expect an Ebor preview to begin with recognition of the race’s fiercely competitive nature, but this year an ante-post favourite as short as 3/1 in places seems to render such careful qualification redundant.

Glory for Kingman not a formality


John Ingles explains why he thinks Kingman may not be completely bulletproof in the Prix Jacques le Marois

A quiz question to begin with: name the only horse to have won both the Sussex Stakes and the Prix Jacques le Marois. The answer can be found below, but a clue in the meantime is that the horse in question won the two races two years apart. That puts into perspective the task facing Kingman who therefore bids for what would be a unique double - winning the top mile contests of the summer in Britain and France respectively in the space of less than three weeks.

European interest aplenty at Arlington

Simon Rowlands has previewed Arlington's valuable meeting which is rich on European interest.

Kennedy is a Premier prospect

Gatewood successful in France

Keith Melrose looks over a weekend in which the big movers came from some surprising places.

We should be thankful that racing’s silly season, which runs roughly from Glorious Goodwood to York Ebor, isn’t as liberal as the one that Westminster appoints to itself. So we are spared “scandals” about who did or didn’t write what on a wreath, but we do have the Shergar Cup.

Group Racing Returns To Sydney

Sweet Idea

Group racing made its return to Sydney last Saturday with the running of the Group 3 Missile Stakes at Randwick.

Early signs of spring could be seen when looking at the field assembled for the Group 3 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Randwick last Saturday.

Gosden dominates Glorious week

Goodwood belonged to Kingman

Keith Melrose looks back on a week in which the best performers didn't necessarily make the biggest splash on ratings.

The Monday after Glorious Goodwood ought to be an ideal time to harvest ratings, the depth of top-level racing bound to make for a good crop to analyse. It didn’t really happen like that in 2014. The rain missed Goodwood literally and metaphorically so did the sun, leaving us with relatively slim pickings from a ratings perspective.
