Three Horses to Follow When the Flat Season Returns
The flat season is still in waiting, as to when it will return. This is due to the coronavirus pandemic, as the sporting world continues to see cancellations. That includes the Olympic games and European championships, that have now been moved until the same time in 2021.
Horse racing has also been widely affected, as the Grand national was cancelled, along with a number of national hunt meetings. The flat season is also now facing cancellations and postponements, with the Derby and Guineas meetings also now being moved to a new date, which has yet to be confirmed. Royal Ascot have also now stated that they may also have to cancel the meeting, but it could be saved and take place behind closed doors.
If and when we do see the return of racing, there are a number of horses that are set to take all the beating. Here we cover three worth following, who will be expected to pick up a number of the biggest prizes over the upcoming season ahead.
The most anticipated return of the flat season is with Pinatubo. He has long been the short priced favourite for the 2000 Guineas, following his remarkable two-year old campaign. He was given a rating of 128, putting him 2lb clear of Frankel at the same time of their careers. This also meant he is the highest rated European juvenile since 1994. All eyes will now be on his return and whether he can continue to improve.

Another horse that always proves popular for punters when racing is Enable. Many punters have been looking for the different offers available at thebest-casinos.com in order to boost their balances to support the horse in the season ahead. She will of course be aiming to win a third Arc, despite being beaten in her bid for a third consecutive title last year. Enable remains one of the leading horses in training and it sets up for an exciting season ahead, once she returns. She is the ante post favourite for the race at present.
The final horse to make the list is Battaash. On his day he is simply unbeatable, as shown when he smashed Dayjur’s long standing track record in the Nunthorpe last season. However, the horse does have his off days and needs to be caught fresh. Battaash is certainly worth following when he has had an extended break and could be one of the stars of the upcoming flat season.
