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The absence of Golden Horn – who was withdrawn on the day due to concerns about the going – deprived the 2015 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes of its one proven top-class performer.
There was still a thrilling finish, however, as Postponed battled gamely to register his first Group 1 success, just edging out Eagle Top whose sustained surge down the straight had looked like carrying him to victory.
Lankan Rupee showed a glimpse of his best through a frustrating season when taking out the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at Flemington.
Expectations were high for Lankan Rupee after a breakout season in 2013/14 where he became the first horse to claim the Oakleigh Plate – Newmarket Handicap – T J Smith Stakes treble.
Adelaide produced the best performance of the four-year-olds this season when claiming the Group 1 Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in October.
The 2014 W S Cox Plate run over 2040m comprised ten individual group one winners with 19 victories between them, headed of course by dual G1 ATC Doncaster Handicap winner Sacred Falls.
The 2015 renewal of the Grand Prix de Paris probably represents the best chance of a British-trained winner of the race since Henry Cecil sent Beat Hollow over to victory 15 years ago.
Partly, this is simply a numbers game: a third of the six-strong field is British-trained, that field size the smallest for this race since Bago beat just three home in 2004.
