The meetings from Catterick, Hereford, Kempton and Lingfield come under Mal Boyle’s scrutiny in a reminder of Well I Declare for…
General stats: Brian Ellison has won with four of the eleven runners he has saddled at Catterick under the NH code in recent times.
General stats: Rebecca Curtis, Nicky Henderson and Jim Best all boast 33% strike rates with a decent amount of runners, whilst trainers with impressive ratios with less raiders include Alistair Lidderdale (3/6), Richard Woolacott (2/3) and John Ferguson (2/5).
General stats: Although the relevant 11% strike rate is nothing to write home about, Jo Crowley’s LSP figure of sixty-eight points lights my blue touch-paper!
3.50: Four-year-olds have won three of the last four renewals, whilst four of the five favourites have secured toteplacepot positions thus far, statistics which include one (11/4) winner.
4.20: Two of the three favourites have secured toteplacepot positions (one winner) thus far.
4.50: Three-year-olds have won all four renewals whilst securing nine of the ten available toteplacepot positions. Four of the five favourites have secured toteplacepot positions, statistics which include two of the four winners.
5.20: Richard Hannon has declared two runners for this event but I should warn you that Richard is responsible for all four beaten favourites in the race to date. Three of the six market leaders have finished in the frame, statistics which include two (7/2 & 11/8) winners.
6.20: All seven winners have carried a maximum burden of 9-3. We still await the first successful favourite in this event, whilst four of the nine market leaders secured toteplacepot positions.
6.50: The three favourites to date have secured two gold and one bronze medal. The two winners were sent off at 9/2 and 100/30, whilst the third placed market leader was returned at 11/2.
General stats: Trainer Pat Phelan is back among the winners and Pat’s sixty points of level stake profits during the last five years at Lingfield catch the eye.
