Our Horses In Focus list consists of horses flagged-up, analysed and designated as 'of interest' in the ATC daily columns. This is where we record the outcome of their future performances - and the handicapper's subsequent reaction.

DATE HORSE OR THOUGHT IN BRIEF FORM SINCE OR SINCE
02.12.2021 Numitor 132 Bumped into a very well handicapped French import on C2 handicap debut at Newbury but showed enough to encourage the belief he can win a decent pot at that level off his current mark.
02.12.2021 Ballyvic Boru 116 Has dropped to very handy mark of 116 from a career high of 129 and showed up well in a Wetherby race that's working out okay. Could well be posied to strike.
30.11.2021 Remastered 146 Was running a cracker in the Ladbrokes Trophy when coming down 4 out - a performance totally going against the grain of form his yard is in at the moment.
17.11.2021 Strictlyadancer 122 He's improved this year, putting together back-to-back wins at Cheltenham. He's only 7, he's still improving as a staying chaser and still rated just 122. There could be more to come. 1 129
17.11.2021 Dostal Phil 143 Did his best work late on in the Paddy Power Gold Cup. Made up loads of ground from deep in the pack and will get further. He's nicely rated with good form in the book and will be potent on winter ground.
17.11.2021 Galahad Quest 134 Another doing all his best work late in a Paddy Power Gold Cup run at pace. Still young. Still building experience. Still learning. Will get further and will appreciate a softer surface. He'll prove better than 134.
03.11.2021 Glen Forsa 136 He's changed yards and looked like he's turned a corner on seasonal debut at Ascot over 3m in first-time tongue tie. If he retains his old ability then he's ridiculously well handicapped on 136. P 133
12.10.2021 Kitty's Light 149 Continues to progress and will improve again into the 150s for stepping back up in trip. See how he finished off at Sandown last term in the Gold Cup. More to come over further. 2P 147
