Stat of the Day, 30th October 2019

Tuesday's pick was...

5.45 Southwell : Cold Harbour @ 6/1 3rd at 5/1 (Led 1f, tracked leaders, driven to lead again over 2f out, soon ridden, headed over 1f out, modest 3rd inside final furlong)

Wednesday's pick runs in the...

4.50 Wolverhampton:

Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Generally, I'll identify and share the selection in the evening before the following day's race and I then add a detailed write-up later on that night/next morning.

Those happy to take the early price on trust can do so, whilst some might prefer to wait for my reasoning. As I fit the early service in around my family life, I can't give an exact timing on the posts, so I suggest you follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for instant notifications of a published pick.

Who?

Mischief Star @ 10/3 BOG

...in an 11-runner, Class 4, A/W Nursery for 2yo over 7f on Tapeta worth £4464 to the winner...

Why?...

This improving 2 yr old colt is the form horse here, winning two of his last four and also making the frame on one other occasion. He won more comfortably than a one length margin would suggest last time out, when landing a similar Class 4, 7f Nursery over this course and distance 12 days ago and I'm not convinced a 5lb rise elevating him to top weight will be enough to stop him improving upon a record that also show 2 wins and a place from 4 over this 7f trip and 2 wins and a place from three runs going left handed.

Jockey David Nolan is 5 from 14 (35.7% SR) for 14.16pts (+101.2% ROI) over the last three years here at Wolverhampton on horses trained by David O'Meara, including...

  • 5/10 (50%) for 18.16pts (+181.6%) on those with a race in the previous 25 days
  • 5/10 (50%) for 18.16pts (+181.6%) on those sent off shorter than 8/1
  • and 3/10 (30%) for 12.07pts (+120.7%) on handicappers

And I mentioned he was top weight here today, conceding 3lbs or more to all his 10 rivals, but that might not necessarily be a cause for concern, as over the last three years here at Wolverhampton, the top (or joint top) weighted horses in Nurseries are 19 from 54 (35.2% SR) for 47.9pts (+88.7%) when sent off at 7/1 or shorter and these include of note/relevance today...

  • 15/43 (34.9%) for 48.5pts (+112.8%) conceding 0-3lbs to the next horse in the weights
  • 7/17 (41.2%) for 28.6pts (+168.2%) in October
  • 6/19 (31.6%) for 25.8pts (+135.7%) over this 7f C&D
  • 6/14 (42.9%) for 1.79pts (+12.8%) from LTO winners
  • and 4/11 (36.4%) for 10.93pts (+99.3%) at Class 4...

...with those carrying 0-3lbs more than the next horse over 7f in October winning 3 of 6 (50% SR) for 18.8pts (+313.2% ROI)...

Who?

Roving Mission @ 5/1 BOG

...in a 13-runner, Class 5, AW Handicap for 3yo+ over 1m1 1/2f on tapeta worth £3429 to the winner...

Why?...

Ralph 'Raif' Beckett is in form. And how!

In the last fortnight (prior to Wednesday) he's run twenty horses, eight of which have won. 40% winners for +47.5 points profit. And he's already had a 25/1 winner on Wednesday!

When teaming up with Harry Bentley during this run they've gone 7/15 (47%, +47 points). The 30 day Bentley/Beckett pairing is 11 from 43, +36.47. These guys are hot right now.

Longer term, Beckett has also rediscovered his touch with handicap debutants, as Roving Mission is. In the past year, he's 12/55 (22%, and a further 22% placed) for +33 points.

All four of her runs are working out well, and she certainly doesn't look over-faced in this 0-70 company...

Who?

Trouble Shooter @ 7/2 BOG

...in a 13-runner, Class 5, AW Handicap for 3yo+ over 1m6f on tapeta worth £3479 to the winner...

Why?...

Shaun Keightley is a trainer to note. He has shown himself to perform especially well with last time out winners, which is a sign that he gets them started out in handicaps off the right sort of mark (when they have any ability, not all of them do of course).

Take Trouble Shooter for instance. This three-year-old son of Delegator comes here on a five-timer after wins at Thirsk, Chepstow, Kempton and Newcastle.

The specifics of that last time out winner record are 9/21 (4 further places). That's a 43% win and 62% place strike rate, good for 20.83 points profit on the win part (A/E 1.95).

His sire, Delegator, is normally associated with sprinters. But of the 110 runs from his progeny over staying trips in the last two years, he's proudly watched (metaphorically at least) 18 of them prevail. They have collectively accumulated 85.88 units of profit (A/E 1.36).

Delegators go well on the all weather, too: 50 wins from 399 starts for +72.80 (A/E 1.17).

Keightley has struck up a good relationship with 'forgotten' jockey, Josephine Gordon. Together they've notched nine winners from 52 runners (+16.83, A/E 1.71), including this lad where they're unbeaten in four.

If those are positive stats, allow me to offer one negative stat in relation to the favourite as I write, Waterfront. His (excellent) trainer, Simon Crisford, is having a difficult month: just one winner from 37 runners, and all four that were sent off shorter than 2/1 in the past fortnight beaten.

It's a competitive heat, but I'm not sure today's pick has finished improving just yet...

Charlie D @ 3/1 BOG

...in a 7-runner, Class 4, A/W Handicap for 3yo+ over 2m½f on Tapeta worth £5,434 to the winner...

Why?...

This 4yr old gelding is running really well right now, finishing 211313 in his last six outings and has to date achieved the following of relevance regarding today's race...

Who?

Affluence @ 7/1

...in a 13-runner, Class 6, A/W Handicap for 3yo+ over 1m6f on Tapeta worth £2,782 to the winner...

Why?...

Going to keep it quite short and simple today with this 4 yr old gelding who has been showing some decent form in his last few runs. He finished 112 in three Class 6 handicaps, before not being outclassed in fourth place stepped up to Class 5.

I'm pretty much ignoring his last effort, where he was well beaten at Worcester four weeks ago, as that was a Class 4 hurdle! I suppose it could have helped with the stamina side of things.

He's now back on the level and dropped back to Class 6, where all three career wins have come and as he's running off a mark effectively 1lb lower than his last win, I expect him to go well again today.

Trainer Martin Smith's handicappers dropping in class on the level are 8 from 26 (30.8% SR) for 34pts (+130.7% ROI) profit when sent off at 10/1 or shorter over the last five years and these include of relevance today...

  • 7/21 (33.3%) for 35.67pts (+169.8%) from those unplaced last time out
  • 7/21 (33.3%) for 30.6pts (+145.7%) from male runners
  • 5/13 (38.5%) for 19.2pts (+147.9%) on the All-Weather
  • 3/11 (27.3%) for 16.77pts (+152.4%) with 4 yr olds
  • 3/6 (50%) for 11.36pts (+189.4%) in 2019
  • and 2/7 (28.6%) for 8.74pts (+124.8%) at Class 6...

...whilst at Classes 5 to 7, 3-6 yr old males on the A/W after being unplaced LTO are 4/8 (50% SR) for 20.9pts (+261.2% ROI)...

Street Poet @ 6/1 BOG

...in an 11-runner, Class 4, A/W Handicap for 3yo+ over 1m½f  on Tapeta worth £5,208 to the winner...

Why?...

Here we have a very much in-form 6 yr old gelding seeking a fifth win on the bounce, after six excellent runs here at Wolverhampton where he has finished 221111, the latest of which was a win at this Class 4 grade 20 days ago.

His handicap record at this venue now stands at 6 wins and 5 places from 13 efforts, all in 10-13 runner contests on the Tapeta and these include of note today...

  • 6 wins, 1 place from 7 after 11-25 days rest
  • 5 wins, 4 places from 9 at odds of 5/2 t0 13/2
  • 5 wins from 7 as a non-favourite
  • 4 wins, 3 places from 8 this year
  • 4 wins, 3 places from 7 at the same class as his last run
  • 4 wins, 2 places from 7 wearing no headgear
  • 4 wins from 4 as an LTO winner
  • 4 wins from 4 in the second half of the year
  • 3 wins, 1 place from 5 over course and distance
  • 1 from 1 under jockey Danny Redmond
  • and 1 from 1 at Class 4...

...whilst his trainer, Michael Herrington has also had more general success at this venue himself, notching up 13 winners from 46 (28.3% SR) for 61.8pts (+134.3% ROI) here over the past 18 months, including...

  • 12/37 (32.4%) for 64.6pts (+174.7%) in handicaps
  • 12/32 (37.5%) for 49.1pts (+153.5%) at odds of 11/4 to 10/1
  • 9/23 (39.1%) for 39.8pts (+173.2%) at 11-25 days since last run
  • 8/17 (47.1%) for 62.4pts (+366.7%) from 5/6 yr olds
  • 6/9 (66.6%) for 40.1pts (+445.4%) from LTO winners
  • 3/8 (37.5%) for 11.8pts (+147.7%) over today's course and distance
  • 1/1 (100%) for 12.83pts (+1283%) with Danny Redmond in the saddle
  • and 1 from 5 (20%) for 8.83pts (+176.6%) at Class 4

...and finally, a quick look at Michael Herrington's record with LTO winners shows that since the start of 2014, they are 12 from 52 (23.1% SR) for 31.1pts (+59.9% ROI) in handicaps when sent off at odds ranging from 5/2 to 10/1, including...

  • 10/35 (28.6%) for 39.8pts (+113.7%) on the A/W
  • 9/29 (31%) for 36.4pts (+125.7%) after 11-25 days rest
  • 7/26 (26.9%) for 13.6pts (+52.2%) at the same class as LTO
  • 7/22 (31.8%) for 31.3pts (+142.1%) with 5/6 yr olds
  • 7/19 (36.8%) for 32.8pts (+172.5%) on Tapeta
  • 6/13 (46.2%) for 36.1pts (+277.6%) here at Wolverhampton

  • 12/37 (32.4%) for 64.6pts (+174.7%) in handicaps
  • 12/32 (37.5%) for 49.1pts (+153.5%) at odds of 11/4 to 10/1

  • 1/1 (100%) for 12.83pts (+1283%) with Danny Redmond in the saddle
  • and 1 from 5 (20%) for 8.83pts (+176.6%) at Class 4

...and finally, a quick look at Michael Herrington's record with LTO winners shows that since the start of 2014, they are 12 from 52 (23.1% SR) for 31.1pts (+59.9% ROI) in handicaps when sent off at odds ranging from 5/2 to 10/1, including...

Who?

Tha'ir @ 7/2 BOG

...in a 13-runner, Class 6, A/W Handicap for 4yo+ over 1m½f  on Tapeta worth £3105 to the winner... 

Why?...

This 9 yr old gelding has a win and two places from his last three runs (all here at Wolverhampton over different distances) and it's fair to say that he saves his best for this venue with 4 wins and 5 further places from just 13 appearances here with a 30.8% win strike rate generating profits of 4.34pts at an ROI of 33.4%, including...

  • after less than 3 weeks rest : 4/6 (66.6%) for 11.34pts (+189%)
  • at 8/1 and shorter : 4/10 (40%) for 7.34pts (+73.4%)
  • at Class 6 : 2/6 (33.3%) for 6.03pts (+100.5%)
  • and in handicaps : 2/8 (25%) for 5.92pts (+74%)

...whilst at 8/1 and shorter within three weeks of his last run = 4/8 (50% SR) for 9.34pts (+116.7% ROI).

Only one of the above wins was for current trainer Phil McBride, for whom he has a win and two places from three efforts, but Phil himself has a more than respectable record on the Tapeta here at this venue with 16 winners from 57 (28.1% SR) for 31.7pts (+55.5% ROI) from those sent off at 8/1 and shorter since the start of 2015 and these include of relevance today...

  • 15/46 (32.6%) for 32.7pts (+71.1%) from those with a run in the previous six weeks
  • 14/50 (28%) for 32.2pts (+64.4%) in races worth less than £4,000
  • 13/32 (40.6%) for 47.1pts (+147.2%) in the March-September period
  • 8/35 (22.9%) for 14.2pts (+40.6%) in handicaps
  • 7/27 (25.9%) for 17.6pts (+65.1%) at Class 6
  • and 6/18 (33.3%) for 30.8pts (+170.9%) since the start of 2018

...from which, horses running in March to September for prizes of less than £4,000 within 6 weeks of there last run are 12 from 26 (46.2% SR) for 43.2pts (+166% ROI), with the following applicable today...

  • 2018/19 : 6/13 (46.2%) for 35.8pts (+275.2%)
  • at Class 6 : 6/15 (40%) for 19.6pts (+131%)
  • in handicaps : 5/15 (33.3%) for 17.8pts (+118.3%)
  • 2018/19 handicaps : 4/10 (40%) for 18.61pts (+186.1%)
  • 2018/19 at Class 6 : 3/7 (42.9%) for 16.6pts (+237.4%)
  • in Class 6 handicaps : 2/9 (22.2%) for 4.59pts (+51%)
  • and 2018/19 in C6 hcps = 2/6 (33.3%) for 7.59pts (+126.5%)

Evolutionary @ 11/2 BOG

Your first 30 days for just £1

...in an 7-runner, Class 5 Handicap for 3yo fillies over 7f on Standard worth £3752 to the winner...

Why?...

It's deja vu, as Matt steps in for Chris on another Monday and looks to replicate the 5/1 winning trick of my previous temporary stewardship. Specifically...

James Tate's three-year-old Morpheus filly is making her handicap debut in this contest. The trainer continues to  excel with handicap debutant(e)s and has now won with 13 of the 39 he's saddled in the past year (33.33%, +16.19, A/E 1.8).

Indeed, in the last four months, Tate's form with first time handicap runners reads 112111278611126.

Tate is in excellent form recently, too, having scored with five of the 13 runners he's sent out in the past fortnight (38.46%, +1.63, A/E 1.2). In the past 30 days, his record is 9/25, and again positive figures for P/L and A/E.

The trainer record at Wolverhampton is remarkable in the past year: eight winners from 16 runners (50% SR, +18.75, A/E 1.96).

Evolutionary has a bit to find on the book with the likes of favourite Diamond Oasis, but she's likely to improve notably for her first run of the year and the first attempt at handicap company. As always, the price - along with the stat - makes the play...

Who?

Corinthia Knight @ 3/1 BOG

...in a 7-runner, Class 3, A/W Conditions Stakes for 4yo+ over 5f on Tapeta worth £7159 to the winner...

Why?...

This 4 yr old gelding looks well suited by the task ahead and has already won 7 of 18 starts on the A/W prior to today, and with today's contest in mind, that 7/18 record includes...

  • 6/13 after 10 to 40 days rest
  • 6/13 in fields of 5-9 runners
  • 6/12 in non-handicap races
  • 5/10 over 5 furlongs
  • 5/10 when sent off shorter than 4/1
  • 3/9 ridden by Ed Greatrex
  • 2/5 on Tapeta
  • 2/2 in April
  • and 1 from 2 over course and distance

...whilst from the above...when sent off shorter than 4/1 in 5f non-handicaps against 4-8 rivals after a 10-40 day break, he is 3 from 3 (100% SR) for 4.14pts (+137.8% ROI) profit.

His trainer, Archie Watson is in decent form right now, too, with a 14-day record reading 8 from 28 (28.6 SR) for 12.3pts (+43.9% ROI), from which 5f sprinters are 3 from 7 and jockey Ed Greatrex is 2 from 6.

Ed himself is 3/12 over the past fortnight and 2 from 7 in the last week, so he's also riding well enough...

Zapper Cass @ 9/2 BOG

...in an 11-runner, Class 5, A/W Handicap for 4yo+ over 5f on Tapeta worth £3752 to the winner...

Why?...

This 6 yr old gelding has three wins and a place from his last five runs and is dropped back down to 5f after failing to make the frame here over 6f last Saturday (I tipped him that day too!).

To date on the A/W , he has...

  • 3 wins from 10 at Class 5
  • 2 wins and a place from 5 at 5f
  • 2 wins from 4 in a visor
  • and 1 win from his only previous crack at this track and trip.

Jockey Mark Crehan claims 7lbs again today and his record on Mick Appleby-trained horses currently stands at 14 from 50 (28% SR) for 67.1pts (+134.2% ROI) since they first teamed up last May and these include...

  • 13/45 (28.9%) for 24.4pts (+54.2%) in handicaps
  • 14/43 (32.6%) for 74.1pts (+172.2%) from male runners
  • 9/42 (21.4%) for 48.3pts (+115.1%) when Mark claims 7lbs
  • 13/36 (36.1%) for 33.4pts (+92.8%) at odds of 8/1 and shorter
  • 10/39 (25.6%) for 7.34pts (+18.8%) on the A/W
  • 6/21 (28.6%) for 59.6pts (+283.7%) at Class 5
  • and 3/7 (42.9%) for 10.66pts (+152.3%) already this month!

...and from the above... Appleby + Crehan + hcps + males + 7lbs claim + 8/1 & shorter = 8/23 (34.8% SR) for 19.7pts (+85.6% ROI)

And since this horse has been turned out just a week after his last run, you might find it interesting to know that...

... 2017-19 + Mick Appleby + 6-7 days since last run = 22/109 (20.2% SR) for 47.4pts (+43.5% ROI) including...

  • 6/7 yr olds at 9/37 (24.3%) for 49.4pts (+133.5%)
  • at odds of 6/4 to 4/1 (where I expect to end up) : 15/34 (44.1%) for 23.1pts (+67.8%)
  • at Wolverhampton : 5/23 (21.7%) for 10.6pts (+45.9%)
  • over 5f : 6/18 (33.3%) for 24.1pts (+133.9%)
  • and those beaten by 3-4 lengths LTO are 4/13 (30.8%) for 37.2pts (+286.1%)

Zapper Cass 5/1 BOG

...in an 11-runner, Class 5, A/W Handicap for 4yo+ over 6f on Tapeta worth £3752 to the winner...

Why?...

This 6 yr old gelding has finished 1131 in his last four outings, the latest being a win here at Wolverhampton over 5f four days ago. He steps back up to 6f today, but looked like he'd plenty left in the tank last time.

Jockey Mark Crehan is on board again seeking to utilise his 7lb claim to further an already excellent record on this horse that shows 3 wins and a place from 8 rides to date. Mark is actually quietly establishing a bit of a reputation in the Mick Appleby yard, having ridden 13 winners from 46 (28.3% SR) for the yard so far, generating level stakes profits of 66.5pts (+144.6% ROI) and these include...

  • on 4-7 yr olds : 13/42 (31%) for 70.5pts (+167.9%)
  • on males : 13/39 (33.3%) for 73.5pts (+188.5%)
  • when claiming 7lbs : 8/38 (21.1%) for 47.8pts (+125.8%)

REMINDER: THERE IS NO STAT OF THE DAY ON SUNDAYS

Here is today's racecard

P.S. all P/L returns quoted in the stats above are to Betfair SP, as I NEVER bet to ISP and neither should you. I always use BOG bookies for SotD, wherever possible, but I use BFSP for the stats as it is the nearest approximation I can give, so I actually expect to beat the returns I use to support my picks. If that's unclear, please ask!

P.P.S. I'm out of the country for most of April, but SotD will still be here every day, albeit in slightly different circumstances, click here for the end of March update which explains the plan in fuller detail!
