Race of the Day – 6 February 2018

Race of the Day - 15:25 Market Rasen

The Trainer Jockey Combo Stats report shows that Dan and Harry Skelton have an excellent record together at Market Rasen. Over the past year, they've had 13 winners (35.14%) and 22 places (59.46%) from  37 runners, for level stakes profits of 11.58 and 12.85 respectively and an Impact Value of 2.57.

They have three runners together here today and we are going to be taking a look at Future Security, who is having his first run for Skelton today.

Future Security doesn't have any recent form to look at as his last run was in the summer of 2016 in France. He ran reasonably well in 2015 though and won a similar race as this at Ludlow from the same mark he is running from today.

Skelton is usually very good at getting a horse ready after a break so it will be fascinating to see what he is able to produce with this one.

The Trainer Snippets on the racecard show that Skelton has a particularly good long-term record here at Market Rasen. Over the past five years, he's had 36 winners (28.13%) and 63 places (49.22%) from 128 runners, for level stakes profits of 28.95 and 26.25 respectively and an Impact Value of 2.15.

He is also useful with horses he inherits from another yard first time out, being 23/87 (26.44%), producing an Impact Value of 2.97.

Unsurprisingly, Harry Skelton also has a good record when riding here and has managed 13 winners (32.50%) and 23 places (57.50%) over the past year from 40 runners, for level stakes profits of 8.58 and 9.35 respectively and an Impact Value of 2.38.

The Pace report shows that prominent runners here over this distance have the best strike rate, with 13.54% of them going on to win the race.

There doesn't appear to be too much pace in this race and it's pretty impossible to try and second guess how quickly Future Security will off, go given the amount of time he has been away from the course and running for new connections for the first time.

He is an interesting runner in this field though and at a price of around 9/2, he could take some beating if Skelton has got him ready.
