Toteplacepot returns for the last five corresponding meetings:
2012--£179.80 (two clear favourites secured toteplacepot posiitons)
5.00: The pick of the five-year-olds (see vintage stats below) should prove to be CATCH THE RHYTHM and BOSS IN BOOTS.
Trainer trends: No trends to date.
Vintage stats: Five-year-olds have won three of the four renewals thus far.
Weight information: Not applicable
Favourite/SP facts: Mixed messages for favourite punters with two of the four favourites having won alongside casualites at 4/9 and 8/11. Three market leaders secured toteplacepot positions.
5.30: Nine-year-old HAAR and CITY PRESS have already won this season which makes for impressive reading given that the new 'term' only began on Sunday!
Trainer trends: No obvious trends given that three time winner Nick Gifford is not represented on this occasion.
Vintage stats: Nine-year-olds have won four of the last six renewals.
Weight information: The last three winners have carried a minimum burden of 11-1.
Favourite/SP facts: Six contests have slipped by since the last favourite won which was the inaugural 7/4 gold medallist in 2006. That said, all seven winners have scored at a top price of just 9/2. The last three market leaders have missed out on toteplacepot positions.
6.00: GUARDS CHAPEL was given a spin on the level recently and should go well for Gary Moore and his team with the trainer also being represented by Winning Spark on this occasion. DUBAI GLORY is an obvious threat to Gary's hopes and dreams.
Trainer trends: Gary Moore has saddled one gold and two bronze medallists thus far.
Vintage stats: No obvious trend to date.
Weight information: Six of the eight horses to have secured toteplacepot positions have carried a maximum burden of 11-2.
Favourite/SP facts: Only one favourite (winner of its respective event at odds of 5/2) has secured a toteplacepot position via three contests thus far. The other two gold medallists scored at 25/1 & 11/1. Indeed, five of the eight horses to have finished in the frame (exact science) were sent off at odds of 15/2 or more.
6.30: PETIT ECUYER and course and distance winner TRY CATCH ME appeal from the three down the weights on this occasion.
Trainer trends: No obvious trends following three renewals to date.
Vintage stats: Nine-year-olds have secured three toteplacepot positions thus far.
Weight information: The three winners all carried 11-7 or less to victory.
Favourite/SP facts: Only one of the five favourites have claimed a toteplacepot position, whilst we still await the first successful market leader from a win perspective. The three winners to date scored at 8/1-11/2-5/2, with six of the seven horses to finish in the frame did so at odds of 8/1 or less.
7.00: LADY FROM GENEVA, TWIN BUD and MASTER CARDOR VISA form my tentative trio against the other ten contenders, with the overnight reserve nomination being awarded to MAISON ROYALE.
Trainer trends: Brendan Powell had saddled three of his last six runners to winning effect at the time of writing (before Thursday's sport was contested) via a mix of both codes.
Vintage stats: Six-year-olds won the first two contests whilst eight-year-olds filled the 16/1 & 7/1 forecast positions twelve months ago.
Weight information: All three winners carried 11-4 or more or 11-5 or less, whichever viewpoint you wish to adopt!
Favourite/SP facts: Only one of the four favourites has secured a toteplacepot position thus far via three renewals.
7.30: MIGHT AS WELL is one of my more positive options on the card, especially as Seamus Mullins has his team in decent each way order. Course winner LAJIDALL is expected to offer most resistance close home, unless STORMYISLAND AHEAD travels on from Taunton where he was due to contest an event on Thursday evening.
Trainer trends: Seamus Mullins (Might As Well) saddled the winner of this event back in 2007.
Vintage stats: Seven and eight-year-olds have each secured three of the ten recent renewals of the race.
Weight information: Eight of the ten winners during the study period carried a maximum burden of 10-13.
Favourite/SP facts: Three favourites have won during the last decade when all ten events were contested, unlike the other races on the toteplacepot card. Seven of the eleven market leaders finished in the frame.
