The weekend starts right here and I’m hoping to refresh your memory about Mal Boyle’s preview of today’s racing from Doncaster, Fakenham, Newbury, Newcastle and Wolverhampton on…
General stats: David Lanigan’s 6/15 record on Town Moor stands out from the crowd, whilst Roger Varian’s horse continue to run well at the venue.
Seven furlong juvenile maiden scheduled for 2.10: Favourites have secured five of the last six renewals with the other winner being returned at just 3/1.
Juvenile event for fillies scheduled for 2.40: Only two of the last eleven market leaders have posted successes during which time, a 100/1 winner was returned back in 2003.
Nursery event scheduled for 3.15: The last nine winners have carried weights of 9-3 or less, whilst three of the last four winners scored at 33/1-16/1-11/1.
Class 2 six furlong handicap scheduled for 3.50: We still await the first winning favourite following five renewals, whilst four-year-olds have secured three victories. The winners thus far have been returned at 16/1-14/1-12/1-8/1-7/1.
Fourteen and a half furlong handicap scheduled for 4.25: Three-year-olds have won eight of the last nine contests, statistics which include the last seven gold medallists. Six renewals have passed by since a successful favourite was recorded, winners scoring at 33/1-20/1-20/1-8/1-15/2-7/1.
General stats: Barry Geraghty’s 7/12 figures at Fakenham withstand close inspection, with Richard Johnston’s 17/42 ratio also catching the eye.
Two mile five furlong novice chase scheduled for 2.30: Only two of the six favourites has finished in the fame (no winners) to date.
Class 4 two-mile handicap hurdle scheduled for 3.05: Six-year-olds have secured five of the last nine contests, whilst three of the last four market leaders have prevailed.
Class 3 handicap chase scheduled for 3.40: Only one of the last eight favourites has prevailed.
General stats: Ron Hodges deserves a mention in despatches for his 6/16 ratio at Newbury, statistics which have yielded a level stake profit of nearly nineteen points.
General stats: Karen McLintock held one option on the card at the time of writing and with 3/6 figures as the track, Nodforms Violet might be worth supporting if taking up his entry in the scheduled 1.30 event.
General stats: Roger Varian held just one entry at Wolverhampton this week where he boasts a 38% strike rate. Panettone is scheduled to run in the 6.20 event at the time of writing.
Nine and a half furlong maiden event scheduled for 8.20: Three-year-olds have won five of the six renewals to date, with a 100/1 five-year-old scoring on the other occasion. Favourites come to this year’s gig on a four timer.
