Stat of the Day, 20th April 2013
A place return on our 7/1 pick yesterday, which was all right considering he never looked like winning. Today, we’re up to the west coast of Scotland, and the…
Andrew Parker has an excellent record with his horses here. As well as dual Scottish National winner, Merigo, he’s struck with three others of his 25 runners, for a 20% win rate and a profit of 51.5 units at SP in the last five years.
Today he saddles Reaping The Reward, a horse which hasn’t been out for 609 days. His own form is good: 232212 and this is his first try at Ayr. Given the trainer’s predilection for winners at the meeting, I’d be hopeful, and there’s been early money for him.
Despite that, he’s still available at 13/2 best odds guaranteed, with Bet365 and that’s each way material.
