Trainer Snippets

How It Works

Understanding the way a trainere operates can be enormously insightful, especially when a horse has little or no form, or is trying a significantly different set of circumstances in today's race.

The Trainer Snippets report shows the TWO YEAR record for all trainers with runners today/tomorrow. Each blue button is broken down by trainer into groups, as follows:

  • Trainer race code
    • Flat Turf, AW, NH Flat, Hurdle, Chase
  • Trainer distance range
    • FLAT: Sprint (1640 yards or less)/Middle Distance (1641-2530 yards)/Staying (2531+ yards)
    • JUMPS: Speed (4290 yards or less)/Middle Distance (4291-5500 yards)/Marathon (5501+ yards)
  • Trainer distance move
    • FLAT: Up 25% or more in distance
    • JUMPS: Up 20% or more in distance
  • Trainer last time out winner
    • Where trainer’s horse won under the same race code last time out
  • Trainer first time starter
    • Where horse has never raced in UK or Ireland before
  • Trainer second time starter
    • Where horse has only raced in UK or Ireland once before
  • Trainer switch (for horse with existing form)
    • Where last race trainer is different from today’s trainer
  • Trainer with horse 60+ days off
    • Where horse has not raced under any code for 60+ days
  • Trainer with horse 7- days off
    • Where horse raced under any code within 7 days of today’s race
  • Trainer handicap first time starter
    • Where horse has never raced in a handicap in UK or Ireland before
  • Trainer handicap second time starter
    • Where horse has only raced in a handicap in UK or Ireland once before

Clicking on any row will reveal the entries for that trainer/snippet pairing. And clicking on the entry will open the race in a new tab.

HINT: Look for a good sample size – ideally 15 or more – combined with a decent win percentage (20%+), and an A/E of 1.25 or higher.
