The new Flat season is well and truly in full swing. And two of the highlights of the year -- the Epsom Derby Festival (May 31 and June 1) and Royal Ascot (June 18-22) -- are just around the corner.
OUR resident expert, RICHARD SILVERWOOD (Scoop Racing), looks back on the two-day Guineas Festival at Newmarket, which helped to draw a line under the anabolic steroids controversy that hit Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin training empire.
TWO of the best, and most informative, meetings of the early weeks of the Flat season are at Newmarket and Newbury. Our resident expert RICHARD SILVERWOOD was there for all four days and reports back here on horses to follow as the campaign progresses.
