Quotes from Talking Trainers:
“Bred to stay a mile and a half, I think he will develop into a top-class middle distance horse.” CHARLIE APPLEBY
“He has a lovely attitude and we are going to run him in the Group 2 Dante Stakes at York (18th May) and, if he stays a mile and a half, I think he will be a major player in the Epsom Derby (3rd June).” ANDREW BALDING
“The gelding operation has made a difference and he could be a Britannia Stakes horse at Royal Ascot.” RALPH BECKETT
“I think she is a very nice filly who will have a good year this season. She could develop into a Sandringham Handicap contender at Royal Ascot over a mile but it is possible a mile and a quarter will be more of her trip.”WILLIAM HAGGAS
“A racey colt, I like him and am hoping he will develop into a Britannia Stakes contender at Royal Ascot.” ROGER VARIAN

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your brilliant book. They’re always brilliant but what I really enjoy is the Talking Trainers section where early / main season targets are highlighted. I had a lovely result today ante post on Cruyff Turn at 16/1 based solely on page 73 of AOTF 22. Just fantastic.” J.J.
