Well I Declare: 17th October

Kempton, Lingfield, Nottingham and Wetherby are our hosts today and here's a quick reminder of Mal Boyle's thoughts for the day.



General stats: Violet Jordan (2/4 at the track) saddles her course and distance winner Perfect Honour on Wednesday.

General stats: This is the first meeting on the newly laid surface whereby readers are advised to give the course time to prove itself, one way or the other!

General stats: Lucy Wadham held three entries at the time of writing at a track where the trainer has saddled two winners via just five runners. 

General stats: Charlie Longsdon’s 43% strike rate (6/14) stands out from the crowd at Wetherby and with eleven potential runners on Wednesday, Charlie is obviously intent on saddling more winners at the venue.

Three-year-old maiden hurdle scheduled for 2.20: Two of the last fifteen favourites have obliged, whilst nine of the sixteen market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions.

Class 3 handicap hurdle event scheduled for 3.25: Nine of the last 12 winners of this handicap hurdle event have carried weights of 11-2 or less, whilst five clear market leaders have won via the last fourteen renewals, alongside one joint and two co favourites.  Fifteen of the nineteen market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions.

Two and a half mile handicap chase scheduled for 3.55: Eight of the last nine winners have carried weights of 10-12 or less.  Nine of the seventeen favourites have secured toteplacepot positions, statistics which include six winners.

Two and a half mile novice hurdle event due to be contested at 4.30: Four-year-olds have secured five of the last 10 renewals whilst eight of the last ten favourites in this event have won, with 3/1 and 9/2 shots having snared gold in the other contests.  Twelve of the seventeen market leaders have finished in the frame during an extended period, statistics which include ten winners.

Beginners’ Chase scheduled for 5.00: Evan Williams come into the race on a hat trick having held just the one entry (One In A Million) at the four-day stage.  Two of the four favourites have claimed toteplacepot positions in the finale, statistics which include one winner.

    Good Morning All !!, can someone please answer the following.
    If you placed a ‘place only’ bet with a bookie, when there were 16runners and you got paid out for a top4 finish.
    Does that still apply, now surprise surprise, a non runner has made it a 15runner race ?

    Thankyou Matt.
    I take it, if you had the bet on Betfair, you’ll still get the 4 places with just 15 runners !!

      Correct, Jim, but you’d be subject to a percentage deduction based on the odds of the withdrawn horse at the time of withdrawal.

    Thankyou Matt for your quick responses. I thought the 6/4 Ladbrokes we’re offering for a place bet on Art Scholar was decent enough, with a top 4. Now I’m not so sure !!!.
