No UK turf racing today, but we do have all-weather action from Kempton and Lingfield, whilst Wolverhampton now hosts the rescheduled Southwell fixture on...
General stats: I don’t enjoy offering negative statistics though if they save readers money, I am duty bound to head in that direction. Although both Richard Hannon and Gary Moore offer strike rates of 14% at Kempton, the respective level stake losses for the trainers during the last five years stands at one hundred and forty-six and one hundred and eighteen points.
4.30 & 5.00 (two divisions): The three winners to date have carried weights of 9-4 or more when returned at odds of 20/1-14/1-10/1.
5.30: Both gold medallists thus far have been sent off as 5/4 favourites for their respective events.
6.00: All five market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions to date, statistics which include three winners.
6.30: Four renewals have slipped by since a successful favourite was recorded since the inaugural market leaders obliged at 9/4 back in 2007.
7.00: We still await the first successful market leader following three contests in which two favourites have secured silver medals, with the other ‘jolly’ finishing out of the money. All three winners have carried a minimum weight of 8-12.
7.30: Three-year-olds have won three of the last five contests whilst just one (11/4) favourite has prevailed via six renewals thus far.
General stats: Jeremy Noseda, Garry Moss, Marco Botti and Kevin Ryan are the only trainers at Lingfield to have saddled more than one winner (two each) since the ‘new A/W season’ started when the turf campaign finished. Nineteen favourites (of one description or another) and won via thirty-two races (59.4% ratio), whilst three of the four odds on market leaders have won.
12.00 & 12.30 (two divisions): Four of the eight renewals have been secured by favourites.
1.00: Two favourites have won five contests, though it’s worth pointing out that the last two gold medallists have scored at 66/1 and 25/1.
1.30: All six winners have carried a maximum weight of 9-5 whilst last year’s successful market leader was the first favourite to oblige. Three of the six favourites have secured toteplacepot positions.
3.10: The six winners have scored at 16/1-16/1-14/1-14/1-6/1-9/2 thus far. Although this is not a toteplacepot position, it’s worth noting that the last four market leaders have finished in the frame.
3.40: Three-year-olds have secured five of the twelve win and place positions, statistics which include two of the four winners which were returned at 10/1 and 5/2 favourite. The other three market leaders all finished out with the washing.
This is the transferred meeting from Southwell.
