Race of the Day

Race of the Day – 17 May

Race of the Day - 14:10 Yarmouth

This is a one mile and between three and four furlongs handicap, with the ground good to firm at Yarmouth.

James Eustace, who trains Longside, has produced a few winners recently, and he also has some good course form here. The green characters below his name show this, and if you want to look at the detail behind this, then you just need to click the black trainer icon below the horses name.

The blue characters next to Sean O'Casey, show that not only is he having his first run in a handicap (HC1), but he is also having his first run for Mick Appleby (TC). Again, if you select these letters, it will take you to a report that looks at the detail. We can see that over the past two years, with horses he has inherited from other yards, Appleby has had 18 winners (24.66%) and 26 places (35.62%) from 73 runners, for level stakes profits of 47.19 and 36.04. This is an excellent record, and shows his ability to get something extra from horses, that perhaps other trainers haven't been able to.

There are a lot of grey sections on the Instant Expert report, which shows that certain elements of today's conditions are an unknown for several of the runners.

Rubensian does have two sections of green, as does Longside, who is actually only runner to have raced here at Yarmouth previously.

It is interesting to note that today's going of good to firm is an unknown to a lot of today's field. Although Longside has only won once from seven runs on this going, he definitely appears to handle it as he has finished third once and second three times, and therefore has been very consistent. He is just the one pound higher than for his last victory as well.

The Pace report shows that it is definitely preferable to be near the front of the pace during the early stages of the race, with 25.24% of early leaders winning the race, together with 17.44% of prominent runners. Both of these have produced a level stakes profit too, from a good sample of runners.

Hard Toffee looks like the most likely to be away in front, closely followed by Sean O'Casey, Longside and Instill. The other half of the field are usually happy to be held up and wait for their chances.

The Trainer Statistics report is available to all users on a Wednesday, and it in a great report for showing where certain trainers excel with their runners.

David Simcock has a quite brilliant long term record at Yarmouth. Over the last five years he's had 19 winners (24.05%) and 28 places (35.44%) from 79 runners, for level stakes profits of 90.75 and 84.64. He runs Rubensian here today, who is currently priced around 6/1.
