    Hi.
    I'd like to know if "out-of-form" can be used as the opposite of "in good form", for instance talkig about a horse.
    Thanks.

    Sure.
    I found it in The Crime Book: "Gillespie purchased a fast galloper (...) named Dashing Solitaire (...). He then scoured racetracks for a slower look-alike. He chose the out-of-form Fine Cotton".
    It's in the chapter about the Fine Cotton scandal in Australia, in 1984.

    It is indeed the opposite.
