The Mirror's very own professor of punting Chris Forwood, the author of 2010's Better Betting, takes an in-depth look at the horses, men and women who helped make the 2011 Flat season such a memorable one, and predicts the ones to watch in the next 12 months. There is so much to reflect on - the performances of the great Frankel, the farewell of Goldikova and the new kids on the block such as Camelot and Dabirsim. As well as featuring full colour pictures throughout, for the first time we reveal who the much-revered Spotform handicappers have top-rated for each of the generations. We analyse the trainers and jockeys who starred in 2011, and those to look out for in 2012. Also discussed are the major gambles of the year - the winners and the washouts - as well as what the industry needs to do to put the sport back on a firm footing. You will not agree with all of Chris's views, but difference of opinion is the essence of racing. One thing you will agree on is that the 2012 season is one of the most anticipated of all time. If you want to be a winner, make sure you are well prepared for it.
