The Trainer Jockey Combo Stats report shows that Hugo Palmer and Josephine Gordon have been in great form together over the past month, with five winners (29.41%) and ten places (58.82%) from 17 runners. This has yielded level stakes profits of 6.29 and 7.95 respectively and produced an Impact Value of 2.86.
They team up with just the one runner at Lingfield today, as Temeraire races in a nice looking seven-furlong fillies' handicap.
From the form on the racecard, we can see that Temeraire has had just the one run since switching to the Palmer yard from France, where she was an easy winner here over six furlongs a couple of weeks ago. She ran on really strongly that day so stepping up to seven furlongs looks like it will suit her, and a repeat of that performance from a mark of 76 will surely see her tough to beat.
The Hugo Palmer yard has been in good form recently, and he also had a useful record here at Lingfield. Over the last year, he's had eight winners (26.67%) and 14 places (46.67%) from 30 runners, for level stakes profits of 8.10 and 7.64 respectively and an Impact Value of 2.28.
He actually has a far higher win percentage on the all-weather courses than he does compared with his overall record and is showing a small level stakes profit from nearly 300 runners on the artificial surfaces.
There is very little to go on when looking at the Instant Expert report. However, Temeraire has two sections of green courtesy of her win here last time out, so it is encouraging to at least know she handles the track.
The Pace report shows that early leaders here over this distance have an extremely good record, with 23.22% of them going on to win the race, for level a stakes profit of 275.91 and an Impact Value of 2.13.
Temeraire was quickly away last time out to take control of the race and make all, and it would be no surprise to see Josephine Gordon try and replicate James Doyle by doing exactly the same.
