This was eagerly anticipated and has not disappointed. There is a wealth of material here, fascinating in itself and certainly helpful to identifying horses to be on the right side of come May and beyond. I find the interviews with trainers particularly helpful. This year features, amongst others, William Haggas and Roger Varian, two trainers I have a particular interest in.
The Ten to Follow competition is always well worth an interest and there's plenty of advice and detailed information on almost all the leading contenders. The ante-post analysis of the Classic contenders throws up some tempting possibilities at longer prices as well as posing some testing questions about some of the market leaders. Horses from Ireland and France are not neglected and those selected as worth following consistently to make a profit are an interesting group, not at all without surprises.
Already, within a couple of days, I have read through the book twice and it will stay close to me throughout the months ahead. For anyone with a serious interest in the Flat this guide is essential reading. A fine, well -written and thoroughly professional job. Recommended.
