Saturday’s pick goes in the…

5.45 Cartmel :

Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Generally, I’ll identify and share the selection in the evening before the following day’s race and I then add a detailed write-up later on that night/next morning.

Those happy to take the early price on trust can do so, whilst some might prefer to wait for my reasoning. As I fit the early service in around my family life, I can’t give an exact timing on the posts, so I suggest you follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for instant notifications of a published pick.


Noble Call at 11/2 BOG

Joanne Foster’s 8 yr old gelding had a poor record for a number of handlers over in Ireland, but impressed when winning by 5 lengths on his yard debut on similarly good to soft ground at Bangor 8 days ago and his team are looking to strike again whilst the iron is hot.

Joanne doesn’t have the biggest / most famous / prolific etc etc string of horses at her disposal, but she’s good at what she know best, low grade handicap hurdles and I don’t mean that disrespectfully : these are the bread and butter races in my opinion.

Since 2010, her record in handicap hurdles stands at 10 winners from 90 (11.1% SR) for 161.7pts (+179.7% ROI), a decent enough starting point for discovering where her strengths lie and this race tells us that her runners are…

  • 10/83 (12.1%) for 168.7pts (+203.3%) from her males
  • 9/69 (13%) for 155pts within 8 weeks of their last run
  • 10/60 (16.7%) for 191.7pts (+319.5%) at trips of 2m to 2m 5.5f
  • 9/58 (15.5%) for 186pts (+320.7%) from her 6 to 8 yr olds
  • 5/46 (10.9%) for 141.1pts (+306.7%) at Class 5
  • 6/39 (15.4%) for 11.74pts (+30.1%) from those priced at 7/2 to 12/1

all very creditable, but start putting those together in combos and the magic really starts to unfold…

as 6-8 yo males running over 2m to 2m 5.5f within 8 weeks of their last run are 8 from 32 (25% SR) for 184.3pts (+575.8% ROI), from which those priced at 5/2 to 16/1 are 7/18 (38.9%) for 46.2pts (+256.8%) and Class 5 runners are 5 from 15 (33.3%) for 172.1pts (+1147.3%).

AND…Joanne Foster’s 6-8 yo male Class 5 handicap hurdlers priced at 5/2 to 16/1 running over 2m to 2m 5.5f within 8 weeks of their last run are 4 from 9 (44.4% SR) for 26.05pts (+289.4% ROI).

Not bad, eh? But wait, there’s more (as a famous Irish “comedian” used to say), because since 2012, male handicap hurdlers who won a handicap hurdle last time out by 4 lengths or more in the last 60 days, went on to “double up” on no less than 312 of 1227 (25.4% SR) occasions for level stakes profits of some 209.5pts (+17.1% ROI).

And of those 1227 runners…

  • 5 to 10 yr olds are 299/1151 (26%) for 213pts (+18.5%)
  • 4-25 dslr = 252/878 (28.7%) for 190.7pts (+21.7%)
  • at Class 5  : 65/173 (37.6%) for 72.1pts (+41.7%)

AND…5-10 yr olds in Class 5 races, 4-25 days since their last run are 57/138 (41.3% SR) for 73pts (+52.9% ROI)
