The Flat season is entering its final couple of months. But there is still plenty of mouthwatering action on the horizon, most notably at big meetings at Doncaster, Newmarket and Ascot.
Our resident racing expert, RICHARD ‘SCOOP’ SILVERWOOD, has come up with this latest batch of three-year-olds and older horses he feels are well worth keeping an eye on until the end of the campaign.
