Race of the Day – 4 Oct

Race of the Day - 16:20 Bangor

The Trainer Jockey Combo Stats report shows what an excellent record Donald McCain and Will Kennedy have together at Bangor. Over the past five years, they've had 15 winners (24.19%) and 23 places (37.10%) from 62 runners, which have produced level stakes profits of 36.48 and 26.69 respectively and an Impact Value of 1.83.

They have three runners at Bangor today and it's Derintoher Yank that I am going to be looking at.

The current form of Derintoher Yank is nothing to write home about but he has been running over distances that appear further than ideal. He was second twice in May over 17 furlongs (one chase and one hurdle) and the hurdle race seemed to really suit him. That was in the same class as today and he races from six pounds lower in the handicap here which is a big plus.

If we expand the trainer and jockey form from the racecard tab we can see that both McCain and Kennedy have excellent records here at Bangor over the past year. They are both showing healthy level stakes profits and Impact Values at almost 2, meaning they are nearly twice as likely as average to have the winner.

The Instant Expert report shows that Derintoher Yank is fairly well suited to conditions here today, as he has two sections of green and three of amber. He is also five pounds lower than for his last victory so has things in his favour for a big run.

Early leaders here over this distance have a great record with 22.44% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 59.11 and an Impact Value of 1.86.

Derintoher Yank has easily the highest pace score in this field based on the last four runs of each horse. There is potential for him to get a soft lead and if he does Will Kennedy may be able to get away from them and will take some pegging back.
