Some Recent Quotes..................

"Katie Gale: Poor first run back last week but despite that we are expecting a lot more now she's back up in trip and seems to have come on for that outing. They went a bit quick for her last time too. Has won here over 2m in the past and with that recent run under her belt then we should see a different horse here."
Mick Appleby

10/02/15 1st 7/2

"SUDDEN WISH has been off for a while and could just need this today on her first run back. Whatever SUDDEN WISH does today I expect to see some improvement from this run today"
Gary Moore

09/02/15 3rd 14/1

"Laughton Park: Up 12lbs for his last win which I thought was a bit harsh. Returning from a ten month absence and can be a bit of a stuffy/lazy horse at home. Not the strongest race for the grade but he will come on for the run. Might sneak into a place."
Suzy Smith

09/02/15 1st 13/2

"Dewala: Off the mark last time over hurdles at Doncaster - has come out of that race well and the tight track here will help her running style. AP booked to ride a big plus too and should go close to defying the 8lb rise."
Mick Appleby

09/02/15 1st 2/1

"TRAFFIC FLUIDE is a keen type so this drop back in trip on better going conditions just could make a difference today. This race could see all four horses finish very close as I have respect for all the runners"
Gary Moore

09/02/15 1st 11/8

"Street Force: Decent horse for Clive Brittain - only third run for us and better last time out. Handles the track and expected to be in the mix as getting better by the race, but on these terms might have it all to do to beat the Kevin Ryan horse."
Mick Appleby

08/02/15 1st 5/2

"Electric Qatar: Third last time out here - but race with 8 CD winners in so a lot of chances. We are one of those previous winners and we were really pleased with his recent run (not beaten far). Same mark and same conditions give him a great chance of being in the mix again and three non-runners a plus too."
Mick Appleby

08/02/15 1st 5/2

"Good race but VIOLET DANCER has been a solid performer all season. I have no going concerns and he  is working well at home"
Gary Moore

Stat of the Day: 31/01/13

Stat of the Day, 31st January 2013

A fantastic ride from Adam Kirby aboard a gutsy battling horse was just the ticket yesterday. Adam made a bold move and set off for home some 3 furlongs before the finish, but it looked increasingly like he was going to get overhauled late on and we'd have to settle for place money. Fortunately, both horse (Canary Wharf) and jockey galvanised themselves for one last push, regained the lead and just (only just!) held on by a short head.

It was good news for those who took the early E/W offer of 6/1, as this paid out more than a full 1pt win at the 7/2 SP!

We're going chasing in the mud today, as we head for the day's final race in the Somerset countryside. Stamina will be tested to the full for the eight runners tackling the 3 miles 1.5 furlongs on heavy ground. Our race is a Class 4 Handicap Chase, better known as the...

4.10 Wincanton

Our trainer in the spotlight today is Mrs Susan Gardner whose yard is in decent enough form based on six winners and two further places from her last twenty runners, but she comes into her own in contests similar to today's. In fact, over the last 12 months, her record in handicap chases shows an impressive 38.9% win strike rate and a 50% place strike rate, courtesy of seven winners and two places from eighteen. These seven winners have helped her followers to profits of 17.7pts (98.33%) in that time. Her career record in Wincanton handicap chases is 115P : a 2/4 record yielding 22pts profit!

Susan actually runs two handicap chasers today: Sea Saffron is priced between 16/1 and 25/1 in the 3.10 race over the same course & distance and that's probably about right. He's the outsider in that event and not one I'd rush to back in a very competitive affair. Mrs Gardner's second entrant today is our selection: Flying Award.

Flying Award has already collected three wins from six runs over fences and stays well, having proved his stamina by winning on similarly heavy ground at Exeter on New year's Day. That race was admittedly over the slightly shorter trip of three miles. Today's trip shouldn't pose any problems, though, as he also holds victories at 3m2f (good to soft) and a stamina-sapping 3m6f on soft ground at Bangor in mid-December.

He made a step up last time out when contesting the Grade 3 Betfred Classic Chase at Warwick and whilst not making the frame, was by no means disgraced with his 4th placed finish in a decent race over 3m 5f on soft ground. The drop back in quality and trip should help him today, as he visits Wincanton for only the second time (he won a handicap hurdle at 6/1 back in April 2011).

He actually races 5lbs higher than that win at Exeter at the turn of the year, but I believe he'll have enough in his locker to defy the penalty. Lucy Gardner takes the ride once more today and Lucy's in decent nick herself, having won on five of her last ten mounts, including Flying Award's victories at Bangor and Exeter.

The main dangers today are likely to come from Alderluck, but I'm happy to take a 1pt win bet on Flying Award at the widely available 9/2 BOG. I've gone with BetVictor today, but feel free to...

Well I Declare, 6th December

Well I Declare, 6th December

Well I Declare, 6th December

Action today from Leicester, Market Rasen, Wincanton & Lingfield. here's a quick reminder of Mal Boyle's Well I Declare feature for...

...THURSDAY (06/12):

Leicester:

General stats: Tony McCoy’s 43% strike rate (via twenty winners) stands head and shoulders above his rivals whilst on the training front, both Fergal O’Brian and Richard Harper boast 2/2 ratios.

 

Market Rasen:

General stats: Couple Nicky Henderson’s strike rate in December last year (see stats above) with his 41% ratio here at Market Rasen and you have a recipe for plenty of winners.

 

Wincanton:

General stats: Tim Vaughan (24% strike rate) and Emma Lavelle (22%) are emerging as understudies to the lead role of Paul Nicholls (27%) at Wincanton via recent results.

Two and three-quarter mile novice handicap hurdle event scheduled for 1.40: All nine winners during the last decade carried a maximum burden of 11-4 during which time, five winners were returned at odds ranging between 16/1 and 50/1.  Four five-year-olds won during the study period, accompanied by just two successful market leaders who represented the vintage.

Class 4 ‘Silver Buck’ handicap chase event due to be contested at 2.10: Last year’s 2/1 market leader could only finish second (beaten three lengths) following six consecutive successful favourites.

Two mile Class 3 handicap hurdle event scheduled for 2.10: Fiver-year-olds secured six of the nine contests during the last decade during which time, seven winners carried a minimum burden of eleven stones.  Three joint favourites have obliged though successful clear favourites were only conspicuous by their absence.

Wincanton’s closing conditional jockey’s event set for 3.40: Favourites have won four of the eight renewals, whilst Venetia Williams has won with her last two runners in the contest.  At the time of writing, Venetia only had Last Shot entered up in the race.

 

Lingfield (transferred from Wolverhampton):

General stats: The 46% strike rate of favourites in the non handicap sector at Lingfield stands close inspection, whilst the 33% ratio of market leaders in three-year-old handicaps is a perfectly decent return during the last five years.

Well I Declare: 22nd November

Well I Declare: 22nd November

Well I Declare: 22nd November

Today's action comes from Hereford, Kempton, Market Rasen and Wincanton and here's a quick reminder of Mal Boyle's preview of...

...THURSDAY 22/11:

Hereford:

General stats: Professeur Emery was the only potential runner on the card hailing from the stable of Warren Greatrex which boasts a 31% strike rate at Hereford.  The ratio improves to 37.5% in the relevant hurdle sector at the track. 

 

Kempton:

General stats:  James Fanshawe only had one runner entered this week at the time of writing and it was here at Kempton where James enjoys a 21% strike rate which is backed up by fifty-eight points of level stake profits.  Spensely is entered for the scheduled 6.10 event.

 

Market Rasen:

General stats: O Crotaigh (scheduled to contest the 2.10 event) was Alan Brown’s only potential runner, the trainer boasting a strike rate of 27% at the racecourse. Otherwise, this is very much Nicky Henderson’s domain.

 

Wincanton:

General stats: The world and his dog knows to respect each and every runner saddled  by Paul Nicholls at this venue, whilst the 33% strike rate of Rebecca Curtis demands plenty of respect.

Two mile handicap chase scheduled for 1.30: Eight renewals have slipped by without a winning favourites being registered.

Two mile six furlong novice hurdle event scheduled for 2.30: Paul Nicholls has saddled five of the last eight winners with the trainer holding three options this time around.  Philip Hobbs has two runners entered in the race having secured two winners during the Nicholls (virtual) domination of the contest.

Three miles three furlong handicap chase scheduled for 3.30: Horses carrying 11-2 or more have secured six of the seven contests.  Favourites come to the gig on a hat trick on this occasion, the first market leaders having been beaten.

Well I Declare: 18th October

Today featured meetings are at Kempton, Uttoxeter and Wincanton and these were the notes Mal made earlier in the week.


THURSDAY 18/10:

Kempton:

General stats: With two Nursery events on the card, it’s worth noting that with a 32% strike rate at the venue in the relevant sector, favourites have a reasonable record at Kempton.


Uttoxeter:

General stats: Richard Woollacott’s figures of 3/5 make for exceptional reading.

Wincanton:

General stats: With four booked rides at the meeting early in the week, my attention is drawn to Conor O’Farrell whose strike rate stands at 33% following eight winners at Wincanton in recent times.  Michael Blake's 4/16 stats read well, albeit all the usual suspects in the training sector in this part of world take some beating when they are represented.  No names, no pack drill…..required!
