Yes, we missed it, of course we did. But we all realised there were bigger issues out there. And then racing returned and what a wonderful release that was of equine brilliance in the Guineas and then Royal Ascot.
We’ve missed our readers, too. As you will know, this is our first issue since April when our Grand National special hit the newsstands on the very day everything shut down. We still have a few copies if anyone would like to see it!
But now the action will come thick and fast with the Epsom Derby/Oaks Festival on July 4 followed the next day by the Coral Eclipse at Sandwn, plus the French Derby and Oaks, the Irish Oaks on July 18 and then four days of Glorious Goodwood from July 28-31. Yes, it’s back!
Make sure you’re in the know with the new edition of Racing Ahead! Here’s what features…
