A busy day today, weather permitting, as we expect to see some decent racing at Cheltenham, Haydock, Fakenham, Redcar & Wolverhampton on...
General stats: It might surprise you to learn that Tim Vaughan has saddled fifty-seven consecutive losers at Prestbury Park. Other leading trainers who have struggled in recent times include Gary Moore (2/50) and Donald McCain (4/83).
General stats: Richard Kingscote has three booked rides at the time of writing, the jockey boasting an LSP figure of sixty-four points via a strike rate of 24% (22/91) during the last five years.
General stats: Those of us here in the ‘watery west’ are amazed to read of Fakenham watering their track at the time of writing, albeit I lived in the east of the country for over fifty years! Underrated pilot Jack Quinlan has five booked rides, boasting a strike rate of 5/19, stats which have produced an LSP figure of over eighteen points.
General stats: Jamie Spencer does not travel to Cleveland too often, though his 7/22 strike rate suggests that his rate of pay in the county is more than adequate!
General stats: Favourite backers have not fared too badly in the last five years at the track, given the stats of 42% in non handicap events and 30% in handicap races, especially when taking 3,370 races into account!
