Coming soon... CHASERS & HURDLERS 2016/17
The 1,056-page masterwork ‘Chasers & Hurdlers 2016/17’ is the forty-second in the series of Timeform Jumps Annuals which have come to be regarded as the definitive record of the winter game. The latest edition will be published on Saturday October 7th.
‘Chasers & Hurdlers’ deals individually, in alphabetical sequence, with no fewer than 8,890 horses, including every one that ran over jumps in Britain in the 2016/17 season. The individual commentaries range from a few lines on some of the lesser lights to multi-page essays on the top horses (the extended entry on Grand National winner One For Arthur, for example, stretches to nineteen pages). The Timeform commentaries supply a potted analysis of each horse’s form and its racing character, as well as giving valuable pointers to the future, while the essays on the best horses provide more detailed accounts of their career, as well as discussing current issues and recalling historical achievements. >>
