One and a half mile Class 2 handicap scheduled for 2.05: Eight of the last ten winners have carried weights of 9-2 or less, whilst four and five-year-olds have won the last eight renewals between them (even split). Five of the fourteen market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions (two winners).
Group 3 ‘Dahlia Stakes’ scheduled for 2.35: Sir Michael Stoute has farmed this race of late, winning four of the last six contests (Michael was not represented last year) with each of his gold medallists being returned as favourite for their respective events. Michael had his four-year-old Dansili filly Dank involved at the five-day stage. Eight of the last seventeen market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions, statistics which include four winners. Four-year-olds lead the five-year-olds 6-3 during the last decade.
Class 2 six furlong handicap due to be contested at 3.10: Five-year-olds have won five of the last nine renewals during which time, eight of the nine winners carried weights of 9-1 or less. Four-year-olds have won three of the last five contests. Seven of the nineteen market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions (two winners) during the study period.
1000 Guineas scheduled for 3.50: Six winners during the last decade have won in double price figures albeit three of the last six gold medallists were returned as favourites. Nine of the sixteen market leaders have reached the frame during the study period (five winners). If you want to go further back to the last twenty-six years (twenty-seven market leaders), the stats are as follows: nine winners—-five placed—-thirteen unplaced. All three odds on favourites won during the extended study period, though the last of them prevailed back in 1996. Aidan O’Brien was winning his second 1000 Guineas (both within the last eight years) when saddling the first and third horses home twelve months ago.
Two-year-old maiden event scheduled for 4.25: Richard Hannon has won three of the last ten renewals of this juvenile event, whilst three of the trainer’s other seven representatives finished in the money. Nine of the last twelve winners have scored at odds of 15/2 or less (including two favourites). Nine of the fourteen market leaders secured toteplacepot positions during the period.
3YO ‘Pretty Polly’ contest due to be contested at 5.00: All fifteen winners during the study period have scored at 8/1 or less (seven winning favourites), whilst ten of the seventeen market leaders finished in the frame.
Class 2 ten furlong handicap scheduled for 5.35: The last four winners have carried a minimum burden of 8-13, whilst Mark Johnston ahs saddled two of the six winners to date. The last five winners have scored at odds of 5/1 or less, statistics which include two successful market leaders.
Twenty four of the first twenty-seven races contested at Hamilton last year were won by horses returned at odds of 9/1 of less, statistics which include twelve successful favourites of one description or another (44.4%). As you might have guessed, Mark Johnston led the way during the early part of the season at Hamilton with four winners (4/1*-11/4*-15/8*-7/4**). Six of the seven winners on last year’s corresponding card were returned at a top price of 17/2, whilst David Simcock and Jim Bethell saddled successful favourites at 9/4 and 11/4 respectively.
David Evans saddled four winners during the first four meetings at Salisbury last year (14/1-9/1-8/1-5/1), a feat only matched by Richard Hannon (1/8*-6/5*-2/1*-16/1).
