Dan Skelton has an absolutely brilliant record with horses he has inherited from other stables, with a strike of almost one in three from 90 runners. This has produced an Impact Value of 3.50, meaning he is three and a half times more likely to win than average.
He has two such runners at Stratford today, and it's Raleagh Mountain that I am going to be concentrating on.
If we expand the trainer form when looking at the race card, we can see that Skelton has been finding plenty of winners recently, and has a strike rate of exactly one in three for the past 30 days, and an Impact Value of 3.06.
It is also worth noting that he has an above average record here at Stratford as well.
The general form of Raleagh Mountain isn't anything to get too excited about, but he appeared to appreciate the step up in trip last time out at Perth, and I am hoping the switch to chasing will see some improvement, which from his current mark, would make him very interesting.
There is a solid favourite in this race who is chasing a four timer, however, he is also making his chasing debut. Given the Skelton stats I have mentioned above, and the feather weight Raleagh Mountain has to carry around, I am hopeful if he can take to fences.
