UPDATES TO EARLIER POST – JOCKEY/TRAINERS TO NOTE TODAY IF YOU FANCY A SPECULATIVE WAGER OR FOUR (LUCKY 15?)
Josephine Gordon’s recent ratio for Saeed Bin Suroor: 5/10 – 1 relevant ride today: Emirates Flight (2.15 Lingfield)
Here’s an interesting trio for John Patrick Shanahan st Chester today. All four of John’s runners have been beaten on the Roodee this week but Tadgh O’Shea has not been riding his horses. Tadgh has ridden three of his last seven mounts for the trainer to winning effect of late, whereby each way interest might be worth considering for his three rides: Cuban Dating (3.35), Set In Stone (4.05) & Taexali (4.35)
No mad punts here you understand, just some small savers perhaps and mixed doubles etc to minimum stakes – best of luck!
The bulk of my Chester work can be found via the links on my Twitter page, as is usually the case for meetings on Friday/Saturday/Sunday:
Other stats based on last year’s corresponding meetings:
Tom Dascombe secured a 90/1 treble on the relevant card twelve months ago – 6 runners there today: Calder Prince & Hillbilly Boy (1.50), Star Of Rory (2.25), Cymro (3.35), Cheerfilly (4.05) & Reflektor (4.35)
No trainer saddled more than one winner though a study of the Placepot dividend (£897.00) revealed some clues. Although the first two favourites obliged, two other gold medallists were returned at 25/1 & 14/1 alongside placed horses at 33/1-25/1-16/1-16/1-16/1-10/1-10/1 – Do you fancy some each way bets tonight?
Last year’s meeting was staged on the all weather course as opposed to today’s turf fixture. Results don’t tend to transfer too well between the two ‘disciplines’ from my viewpoint.
Along with Uttoxeter under the NH code, Market Rasen offers the least help as far as successful trainers are concerned as few achieve doubles on the relevant cards down the years. Last year’s results were a perfect example.
All seven winners scored at a top price of 9/2, stats which included four winning favourites. Sir Michael Stoute was the only trainer to saddle a (7/2) double on the card – 1 runner tonight: Nathan Mayer (8.00)
All six favourites were beaten last year though that said, three winners scored at 13/8 – 10/3 – 4/1. The bookies fought back however as the other contests were won by horses returned at 16/1 – 14/1 – 14/1
In form trainers today include Derek Shaw (3/9 – +29) who saddles two outsiders in the 8.30 at Nottingham tonight: Le Manege Enchante & Manipura. Harry Fry (6/12 – +4) was due to have runners but we now (seemingly) have to be patient until tomorrow.
Be lucky but as ever – be aware!
