Brian Meehan In Decent Form....

Andy Newton’s got six more flat handlers that have their strings in flying form to look for this week……..


RUTH CARR (4 winners from her last 10 runners, 40% strike-rate):
With 15 winners now for the season the Carr team are ticking along nicely, and are now halfway to matching their total in 2012. 40 the season before in 2011 was their best ever tally to date since they started in 2008. All 15 successes have been with horses aged 4+, so with them currently being 0-from-25 with their 3 year-olds then that is something to note. They’ve not had a single juvenile runner yet this term, but they only had 13 last season. Jockey’s PJ McDonald and James Sullivan get the majority of their rides.
Track stats and up-coming entries: Haydock (8 from 73, 11%), Beverley (9 from 81, 11%), Hamilton (5 from 45, 11%), Nottingham (1 from 24, 4%), Musselburgh (6 from 73, 8%), York (2 from 47, 4%), Doncaster (5 from 82, 6%)

 

BRIAN MEEHAN (4 winners from his last 10 runners, 40% strike-rate): Another yard that are worth looking at when the money is down at the moment as 4 of their last 5 to be sent off favourite have gone in. Yes, only had 14 winners so far in 2013, but hopefully this recent good spell will help kick on those figures – 74 in 2006 is their best finish yet. 10 of their 14 winners have been with their 3 year-olds, but with 3 juvenile successes from only 16 sent to post (6 others placed) then that’s a good sign their 2 year-olds could be fairly forward and decent this term too.
Track stats and up-coming entries: Newbury (12 from 191, 6%), Nottingham (7 from 52, 13%), Haydock (11 from 75, 15%), Sandown (8 from 82, 10%), Goodwood (16 from 93, 17%), Chepstow (3 from 33, 9%), York (3 from 48, 6%), Bath (14 from 65, 22%), Leicester (9 from 57, 16%), Salisbury (6 from 71, 8%), Doncaster (13 from 74, 18%)


JONATHAN PORTMAN (5 winners from his last 13 runners, 38% strike-rate):
Never been the most prolific of yards in terms of winners, with 23 in 2011 the best they’ve managed so far. This recent good spell has them on 6 for the season, but more importantly they are showing a +£24 level stakes profit from those 57 runners. They are 0-from-4 with their juvenile runners in 2013, but they did fire in 6 juvenile successes in 2012 so once we see a few more of theirs, and ones that have maybe had a run too, then these are worth keeping an eye on. They tend to use young Matthew Lawson, who claims 5lbs, a lot in the saddle, but, that said, he’s only been on one of their five recent winners. As the season moves on look for any Epsom runners they might have as they are currently 4 from 11 (36%) at the Surrey track.
Track stats and up-coming entries: Nottingham (0 from 18), Newbury (8 from 84, 10%), Chepstow (5 from 67, 7%), Sandown (2 from 15, 13%), Bath (8 from 91, 9%), Salisbury (4 from 55, 7%)


DAVID O’MEARA (4 winners from his last 11 runners, 36% strike-rate):
This North Yorkshire yard have really made a name for themselves in the past few years and this season looks to be their best yet. They are already on a staggering 62 winners for the year and considering they notched 69 in the whole of 2012 then you can see just how they’ve progressed. Breaking 100 now is certainly on the cards as they look to establish themselves as one of the leading yards in the North. Most of their winners (43) have been with their 4+ year-olds this season as they often do well with other trainer’s cast-offs. Just a couple of juvenile successes so far in 2013 but they’ve only had 17 runners. Don’t forget they also operate a few runners over the sticks too, while looking ahead to Royal Ascot next week they’ve plenty engaged and will be hoping to really cement their name as one of the up-and-coming yards with a win at the Berkshire venue.
Track stats and up-coming entries:
Haydock (4 from 52, 8%), Beverley (13 from 78, 17%), Hamilton (2 from 21, 10%), Nottingham (1 from 17, 6%), Musselburgh (10 from 54, 19%), York (11 from 113, 10%), Sandown (2 from 7, 29%), Aintree (0 from 4), Hexham (0 from 2), Musselburgh (10 from 54, 19%), Leicester (3 from 7, 43%), Doncaster (10 from 110, 9%)

JAMES TATE (5 winners from his last 14 runners, 36% strike-rate): With 5 of their last 6 runners to be sent off favourite (or joint fav) winning then that’s the first thing to take on board. Another of the newer yards that are fast making a name for themselves and with some powerful Arab owners behind them then you can only see their operation heading one way. Neil Callan does most of the steering, but they also use Paul Mulrennan and Andrea Atzeni a bit too. In only their second real season they are already on 23 winners for the campaign and that’s 2 better than 2012 too. The bulk (17) of their winners have been with their 3 year-olds, but it looks like they might have a fair batch of juveniles too and have already had 4 winners in that age group from just 21 runners.
Track stats and up-coming entries: Yarmouth (0 from 10), Sandown (0 from 4), Chepstow (no runners), Musselburgh (0 from 4), Bath (0 from 3), Lingfield AW (3 from 32), Leicester (5 from 15, 33%), Doncaster (0 from 5), Salisbury (0 from 2), Kempton (1 from 32, 3%), Carlisle (1 from 1, 100%)

 

WILLIAM HAGGAS (4 winners from his last 11 runners, 36% strike-rate): With 16 of their last 18 runners finishing fourth or better, including 6 winners in that period, then it’s clear just what good form the Haggas team are in. 6 of those 8 were also sent off as clear favourite, so keep a look out for when the money is down too. They tend to use a variety of different jockeys, but Liam Jones and Paul Hanagan seem to get the majority of rides. They are currently sitting on 27 winners for 2013 from just 121 runners, so it will be interesting if they can get near the 83 they managed last season or the 86 (their best ever) that they got in 2008. There are quite a lot of tracks they do well at to mention them all, but play special attention to Southwell AW, Newcastle, Hamilton, Ffos Las, Chester, Chepstow and Brighton. Finally, looking ahead to next week and Royal Ascot, they are only 12 from 111 at the track in recent years, but they are 3 from 15 with their 2 year-olds!
Track stats and up-coming entries: Haydock (16 from 51, 31%), Newbury (15 from 82, 18%) Nottingham (3 from 49, 6%), York (16 from 64, 25%), Sandown (12 from 54, 22%), Goodwood (5 from 48, 10%), Bath (2 from 18, 11%), Lingfield AW (19 from 93, 20%), Salisbury (5 from 26, 19%), Doncaster (13 from 72, 18%)
