9780002189682: Pocket Racing Guide

A fully updated edition of this indispensable guide to horse racing for the armchair punter and regular racegoer, produced in association with the Daily Telegraph and written by its long-serving racing correspondent, Tony Stafford.

Champion tipster Tony Stafford takes an informed look at the world of horse racing, drawing on a lifetime of experience to offer practical advice about how to get the most from the sport, whether at home or the race track.

He explains how to evaluate the form, what to look for in the paddock, which courses offer the best facilities, and where to look for value bets.

The book includes many anecdotes about the colourful characters in racing from trainers and jockeys, to punters, stewards and bookmakers. The author recalls many of the great races he has witnessed and ranks his own equine hall of fame.

There have been many developments in the racing world since the book’s last publication, all of which are documented in this new edition – not least the explosion of the Godolphin Operation to the detriment of Britain’s trainers; doping and race-fixing scandals; the rise of internet and spread betting and the worrying trend towards off-shore betting which, unless checked, could spell the end of the high-street bookmaker.
