Stat of the Day: 16th April 2012
Be My Light ran his race yesterday, but wasn’t quite good enough to make the frame. At an advised 20/1, we got a decent enough run for our money, but we finished 6th of an eventual 14 runners. Our current losing run stands at three, but we’re aiming to break that today with a trip to Berkshire and the banks of the River Thames and the only figure-of-eight Flat course in the country. We’re going to tackle a Class 5, 10 furlong maiden and we’ve currently got 8 rivals to overcome in the…
John Gosden’s horses are really firing at the monent (6 winners in the last fortnight with a 26% strike rate) and his record at Windsor is excellent in recent times. 50% of his runners here made the frame in 2011 and his win strike rate was a very impressive 36%! So, I was very interested to see that he has just the one runner today in the form of Falkland.
