Good Morning everyone, we've a busy day ahead of us and here's a quick recap of Mal Boyle's Stats and trends for today's action from Salisbury, Sandown, Thirsk, Wolverhampton and Bangor...
Further interruption to the service on Friday as trends for Sandown and Salisbury (alongside the other potential venues) are only conspicuous by their absence.
General stats: Richard Price has saddled an average of fourteen winners a year of late whereby his current total of six is a disappointing return. Richard’s record at Salisbury offers hope for potential investors however as the trainer boasts a 26% strike rate via five winners during the last five years, statistics which have yielded twenty points of level stake profits for good measure.
General stats: Sir Mark Prescott (33%) and Jeremy Noseda (32%) lead the potential trainers at the meeting from a strike rate perspective.
General stats: I doubt that Kieren Fallon will take up the option of one ride he had booked at the track as Sandown held more engagements for the ex champion at the time of writing. That said, I should point out Kieren’s 3/5 ratio at Thirsk for future meetings.
One mile juvenile event scheduled for 2.10: Trainers do not help the cause at times because Mick Channon has saddled three winners of this event when represented in the contest and yes you guessed it, Mick did not have a runner involved at the five day stage! I have left the information in the analysis for your convenience for the 2013 contest. Only one of the four short priced favourites has even reached the frame (an 8/13 chance) with the winners being returned at 11/3-5/1-12/1-18/1 to date.
Two mile handicap event scheduled for 2.40: Both favourites have finished out of the (short field) frames thus far behind 7/1 and 11/2 winners.
Three-year-old handicap over six furlongs scheduled for 3.50: Two of the three favourites (including an 11/4 winner) have secured toteplacepot positions to date.
Classified event over six furlongs due to be contested at 4.25: Two of the three favourites have finished in the frame, statistics which include a successful 4/6 market leader.
Class 4 seven furlong handicap scheduled for 4.55: The only favourite to secure a toteplacepot position via four renewals to date was the winner of one of the two divisions of the 2010 contest at odds of 4/1.
General stats: William Knight held two options on the card at the time of writing, boasting a 26% strike rate at Wolverhampton via eleven winners during the last five years.
General stats: Richard Johnson leads Tony McCoy from both a strike rate and a level stake profit perspective at Bangor, recording respective figures of 26% and thirty-three points during the last five years. Martin Todhunter’s 24% strike rate (4/17) is worth noting, especially as the trainer has secured an LSP figure of nine points into the bargain.
