Daily Stat Pack: 22nd March

The weekend is almost (thankfully!) upon us and here are four meetings for your consideration today. If you need a little help or a nudge in the right direction, there here are Mal Boyle’s thoughts on the racing set for Doncaster, Newbury, Sedgefield & Wolverhampton on…

FRIDAY 22/03:


For the record, Richard Fahey saddled the most winners (nine) on Town Moor last year, though it is the raiders from Michael Bell’s yard that should demand the most attention this season.  Michael saddled three of his seven juvenile representatives to winning effect (4/1-7/2*-11/4**), whilst recording total returns of 7/19 during the course of the year.

‘Brocklesby’ event scheduled for 2.00: Just one (co) favourite has won this famous two-year-old event during the last eleven years, though bookmakers have not had things going all their own way as nine of the eleven winners were returned at odds ranging between 5/2 and 9/1.  Bill Turner has saddled three of the last seven winners and Bill has had more than his normal share on winners during the winter.  Bill’s only option for the ‘Brocklesby’ at the penultimate stage this season was Mick’s Yer Man.

Mile and a quarter handicap scheduled for 2.30:  This event looks destined for a leading stable victory, with three top trainers having entered over half the number of runners at the penultimate stage.  Mark Johnston held three options with two each for Richard Hannon and Richard Fahey.

‘Doncaster Shield’ scheduled for 3.00: Charlie Hills has carried on where his dad left off in raiding Doncaster to good effect.  Model Pupil is Charlie’s entry in this event and it’s worth noting that the trainer has only saddled more turf winners at Newmarket than he has at Doncaster during his brief career, despite Town Moor being the thick end of two hundred miles from home.  For the record, Model Pupil scored at the first time of asking last season which makes for positive reading.
