Four meetings under consideration today, as I remind you of Mal Boyle’s thoughts on the racing for…
Class 3 Three mile handicap chase scheduled for 2.00: Horses carrying 11-8 or more have won four of the six renewals to date, whilst three of the eight favourites have finished in the frame to date, statistics which include two winners.
Class 4 seventeen furlong novice hurdle event due to be contested at 3.30: Four-year-olds have won five of the eight renewals thus far whilst seven of the eight favourites have claimed toteplacepot positions, statistics which include five winners.
Bumper finale scheduled for 4.10: Fourteen of forty favourites have won bumper races at Bangor during the last five years.
Class 4 twenty-one furlong novice hurdle event scheduled for 12.40: Favourites have secured two gold, one silver medal and one bronze medal via five contests. Paul Nicholls trained the first two winners of this event (Paul held two options at the time of writing), whilst five-year-olds come into the contest on a five timer.
Seventeen furlong Beginners’ Chase scheduled for 3.10: Five and six-year-olds have secured five of the six renewals to date, the young brigade leading 3-2 to date. Paul Nicholls has saddled two winners in the most recent renewals when the trainer was represented. Paul held two options at the time of writing.
Class 5 nineteen furlong handicap chase due to be contested at 3.40: Only three of the nine favourites have secured toteplacepot positions (one winner) via eight renewals to date. The last six winners have carried weights of 11-5 or more.
Mares novice hurdle event scheduled for 4.10: All four favourites had finished out with the washing before last year‘s even money market leaders secured the silver medal. Six-year-olds come into the contest on a four timer.
General stats: 41% of the 413 non handicap favourites have won at the Sunbury venue during the last five years.
General stats: James Tate had just one runner entered at the time of writing which was Dubawi Sound in the 2.50 event, the trainer boasting a 50% record at South well (6/12) thus far.
