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.
The outstanding older miler Solow – who won this race, along with the Dubai Turf at Meydan, the Prix d'Ispahan at Longchamp, Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot.
Iin 2015 – side-lined through injury at least for the early part of this season, this year’s Queen Anne has a more open feel to it than some recent renewals, including when Frankel was sent off at 10/1-on in 2012 and when Toronado justified odds-on favouritism two year later.
Our Ivanhowe secured his first win in Australia when taking out the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) on Saturday.
The Lee and Anthony Freedman-trained runner settled back in the field with Kerrin McEvoy on board before running on strongly down the outside, taking the lead over the concluding stages for a strong win.
A truly run Goodwood produced a true result with winner Black Heart Bart producing a Timeform rating only bettered by Black Caviar in the race's recent history.
The Goodwood was a maiden Group 1 win for Black Heart Bart , following second-placed efforts in both the Group 1 Newmarket and Group 1 All Aged Stakes this preparation, and he matched his best form to take the prize, returning a Timeform rating of 123.
As was the case with the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial previewed by John Ingles a fortnight ago, Aidan O’Brien is responsible for half of the eight runners declared for the Irish 2000 Guineas.
A race he has won six times in the last eight years - with Air Force Blue leading the Ballydoyle challenge on Timeform ratings.
Having backed Midterm and So Mi Dar ante-post for the Derby and Oaks I’m hardly in love with the game at the moment, but I do know one of the best things about betting on horse racing is how quickly things can change for the better, as well as for the worst.
So, with D:Ream playing on a loop in my head, I’m going to try and get it all back on the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday.
Trainer John Gosden won the Musidora Stakes with multiple Group 1 winner The Fugue in 2011 and his So Mi Dar (now Timeform-rated 120p) will now bid to improve upon that fillies’ third in the Oaks.
So Mi Dar was similarly impressive when winning the York feature on Wednesday, showing a smart turn of foot to come four lengths clear of the 1000 Guineas fourth Fireglow (111) and last year’s Rockfel winner Promising Run (112).
While failing to live up to market expectations in the All Aged Stakes emerging sprinter Malaguerra bounced back in a big way taking out Saturday's Group 1 BTC Cup at Doomben.
In what was the first Group One success for Team Freedman since reuniting in 2014, Malaguerra cemented his claims as one of the leading hopes in this year's Stradbroke following his hard fought victory.
The highlight of the week at York is Thursday’s Dante, a race that has firmly established itself as the key Derby trial in recent years.
Thanks to the performances of Golden Horn (2015) and Authorized (2007) who have both completed the double in the last decade, while Workforce was second here in 2010 before going once place better at Epsom the following month. Like the last-named, this year’s favourite Midterm sports the colours of Prince Khalid Abdullah and the ante-post Derby favourite will be the centre of attention as he bids to maintain his unbeaten start to his career.
The majority of accepted trials for the classics at Epsom this year have been unsatisfactory and/or underwhelming affairs, but we could well have a couple of genuinely informative ones at York this week.
First up is the Musidora Stakes on Wednesday – in which the second favourite for The Oaks, So Mi Dar, faces six rivals – then comes the Dante Stakes on Thursday, featuring The Derby favourite Midterm and 11 others.
