Stat of the Day, 13th April 2016

Tuesday’s Result :

2.25 Exeter: Wild West Wind @ 9/2 BOG 2nd at 4/1 (Held up towards rear, headway chasing leaders before 4 out, led before 3 out, ridden and headed approaching last, kept on same pace run-in, no chance with easy winner)

A very good run, without a payoff, on Tuesday. No excuses, we were beaten by one of the two progressive horses in the field (the other filled out the tricast behind our pick). It was a statbuster sort of day, with Tizzard’s very poor handicap debut record made slightly better by the winner, and Harry Fry’s 0 from 15 record in the past fortnight now reading 2 from 18 (and 3rd here). Hopefully a few were on the TJ Combo Fry angle (I was not, sadly).

Wednesday’s runner goes in the…

6.20 Kempton

A man in stupendous form right now is Willie Muir, who has had six winners and three further places from his ten runners in the last two weeks (+19.12). In fact, let me give you a sneaky peek at the soon-to-be-released Form Filter 2.0, where such things are click-click easy to check:

As you can see, Muir’s form string is 5111221112. Wow. Now, obviously these runs come to an end, but there is more to King Of Spin‘s case than merely the trainer’s recent form.

Jockey Rob Hornby is also in good form, his four winners from 18 rides – 22.22% – worth 26.50 units to fortnightly followers. The Muir-Hornby partnership meanwhile is brand new, with just two team efforts to date, both in the last fortnight and amounting to a 12 form string.

King Of Spin was unlucky last time out, meeting trouble in running, and he has a wide draw to overcome this time. But, with three horses likely to be keen to go on, the field should string out and enable him a smoother passage. Whether he’s good enough is the question we’re paying to find out and his fitness edge on the (well backed early) favourite, Jack Nevison, makes an offer of 10/3 playable.

That price is available with Paddy and Victor, and a one point win bet is suggested.
