Favourite factor: Market leaders have won six of the last nine contests, whilst favourites come to the gig on a five timer this time around. That said, only one of the other three jollies (at 2/11) secured an additional toteplacepot position.
Favourite factor: The inaugural 10/3 market leader (frustratingly) finished fourth, missing out on a toteplacepot position in the process as did last year's 15/8 favourite.
Favourite factor: Two of the four favourites (via three renewals) have finished in the three (exact science) to date.
Favourite factor: We still await the first successful favourite from a win perspective following four renewals (despite the claim in the analysis above), with two of the relevant market leaders securing toteplacepot positions.
