Today’s action comes from Fontwell, Kempton, Newmarket and Worcester on…
General stats: Michael Blake only had three potential runners-up until Friday at the time of writing, one of which was Ellviss at Fontwell where the trainer boasts a strike rate of 27% (3/11) thus far. The course was waterlogged as I write this column, let’s hope for some better news by the time you read this article.
Two and three-quarter mile handicap hurdle scheduled for 2.50: All four winners have carried weights of 11-7 or less to victory.
General stats: Ralph Beckett’s figures are very good given the number of runners he has saddled at Kempton during the last five years. Ralph’s fifty one winners have been gained via a 21% strike rate which is backed by an LSP figure of sixty-five points.
General stats: Aside from one race on the card, all the events are for juveniles at Newmarket on Wednesday. Statistics for non handicap races in the two-year old sector as far as favourites are concerned stands at 39% (70/178), whilst four market leaders have won in the Nursery (handicap) divisions via fifteen contests (27%). Margins of level stake profits and losses in both sectors is fractional.
3.05: Five favourites have won during the last decade whilst the biggest priced winner during the period was an 8/1 chance. Nine of the eleven market leaders finished in the frame (exact science).
3.40 & 4.10 (Two divisions): John Gosden has saddled four of the last eight winners of this event and John held entries in both heats this year at the time of writing. Eight renewals have slipped by since the last favourite prevailed.
General stats: Three of the last six runners of Anthony Honeyball have won and with just one entry this week at Worcester, Boss’s Destination would have to be of interest if given the green light to run. Anthony’s 34% strike rate at the venue stands out from the crowd, especially backed up by an LSP figure of seventy-four points.
