Uttoxeter is famous for the number of different trainers that saddle winners at each meeting, year in and year out and as much as I hate to admit it, trainer trends are in very short supply at the Staffordshire venue.

That said, Placepot dividends (particularly during the winter months) tend to benefit with the uncertainty relating to trainers as the favourite figures above confirm.

The following figures paint a slightly different picture however, as Uttoxeter stage lots of summer meetings when the results become more predictable given the consistency of the (good) ground.

 

Average Placepot dividend at Uttoxeter this season (18 meetings): £192.23

116 favourites – 49 winners – 28 placed – 39 unplaced
