Race of the Day – 11 Aug

Race of the Day - 19:15 Haydock

Tom Dascombe and Richard Kingscote have an excellent record when teaming up together at Haydock, as we can see from the Trainer Jockey Combo Stats report. Over the past year, they've had 17 winners (25.37%) and 29 places (43.28%) from 67 runners, for level stakes profits of 34.13 and 31.12 respectively. This is also showing an Impact Value of 2.29.

They have two runners together here today but it is the two-year-old Magnus that I am going to be concentrating on.

He is one of the most exposed horses in this line up having had seven runs already this year, however, it is interesting to note that his sole win came when the ground was soft. Any further rain on the course would, therefore, be a positive.

She has only run over seven furlongs once, but this Makfi is crying out for at least this distance in my opinion and on softer underfoot conditions I am hoping this will show her in a better light.

Expanding the trainer and jockey form on the race card highlights that they both have outstanding long-term records here at Haydock, with Dascombe not far off 100 points level stakes profit for the past five years.

Dascombe also does particularly well when sending his runners back out again, as with horses racing again within seven days, he has a strike rate of 8/37 (21.62%) for a level stakes profit of 19.50.

Early leaders here over this distance have a good record with over 20% of them going on to win the race.

I am hoping that Kingscote is able to get out quickly and dictate things from the front, where he will be able to test the stamina of some of these is the sticky conditions. If he is able to do that I am hopeful that she will be good enough for at least a place at a nice price of around 12/1.
