Race of the Day – 16:20 Epsom Downs
This is the Amateur Derby at Epsom today and it has attracted an interesting looking group of riders. JJ Codd is an excellent amateur jockey over the fences, as highlighted by his brilliant ride on Cause Of Causes in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
Ickymasho is chasing a hat trick and he is the short priced favourite at 9/4.
From looking at the Trainer Snippets report, we can see that Brendan Powell has a particularly good record with flat staying horses. Now it isn’t necessarily his win percentage (12 winners from 83 runners – 14.5%) that stands out, more that his win P/L to level stakes is 54.76, which is extremely impressive. This shows that he gets his fair share of nice priced winners that creep under the radar and he runs Bohemian Rhapsody today who is priced at 16/1.
For the record, he has a place record of over 30% for this type of race which is pretty reasonable.
These figures on their own aren’t really enough for me to be confident on a certain horse, however after drilling down into Bohemian Rhapsody’s form (using the Full Form Filter) we can see that he has had just the two runs in today’s conditions (going and distance), where he has finished first and third.
