A JUMPS FAN’S DREAM
The 1,024-page masterwork ‘Chasers & Hurdlers 2017/18’ is the forty-third in the series of Timeform Jumps Annuals which have come to be regarded as the definitive record of the winter game. Lavishly illustrated with photographs of the top races and leading performers in Britain and Ireland, ‘Chasers & Hurdlers’ also deals individually, in alphabetical sequence, with over 8,500 horses, including every one that ran over jumps in Britain in the 2017/18 season. The individual commentaries range from a few lines on some of the lesser lights to multi-page essays on the season’s stars – up to fourteen in the case of Grand National winner Tiger Roll.
As well as being a permanent record, and a source of entertaining reading, ‘Chasers & Hurdlers’ is also designed to be of practical value in winner-finding. Look up any horse and you have a unique insight in just a few seconds into its form – measured by the all-important Timeform rating - and its racing character, including its distance and going requirements. The commentaries give valuable pointers to the future, while the extended essays provide more detailed accounts of champions’ careers, as well as discussing current issues in racing and recalling similar achievements from the past. Chasers & Hurdlers’ has something for everyone, whether you’re the champion trainer or a keen amateur who follows the game as a hobby. It’s a jumps fan’s dream!
