Sincere thanks for your patience and kind comments whilst I have been away – plus a mention for Tony who has covered any shortfalls in his usual exemplary fashion!
Before offering today’s Daily Stats service, I should point you in the direction of the link which will appear on my Twitter page around 9.00 (thereabouts) which directs attention to a trainer at York who has secured doubles in three of the last four corresponding meetings at the track, backing up those figures with an 8/1 winner twelve months ago.
Today’s in form trainers (not mentioned in my Sporting Life column) include:
7/12–Nicky Henderson (+8) – 1 today at Newton Abbot: Turn Turk (2.10)
6/15–Charlie Appleby (+8) – 1 today at Sandown: Endless Gold (3.10)
6/19–Richard Hughes (+25) – 5 today: Haven’s View (2.00 Sandown), Jumping Jack (3.10 Sandown), Twenty Times (7.40 Goodwood), Mr Minerals (8.15 Goodwood) & Delfie Lane (8.35 Chepstow)
5/14–Luca Cumani (+4) – 2 tonight: So Sleek (6.25 Chepstow) & City Limits (7.40 Goodwood)
5/16–John Gosden (+23) – 2 at Sandown: George Villiers (2.35) & Jupiter Light (4.50)
4/10–William Muir (+44) – 2 outsiders in the 6.25 Chepstow: 66/1 chance Franny Nesbit & Sure To Explode (around the 12/1 mark)
4/13–John Butler (+20) – 1 today: Jufn (7.00 Chepstow) – no more runners until Monday (earliest)
4/13–Roger Varian – 3 runners: Call Me Grumpy (3.10 Sandown), Sun Lover (3.30 York) & Shargiah (3.45 Sandown)
4/14–James Fanshawe (+10) – 2 chances: Gothic Empire (3.30 York) & Envisaging (8.45 Goodwood)
3/9–Ed De Giles (+2) – 2 chances today: Prendergast Hill (3.45 Sandown) & Panko (5.15 York)
+ you might consider three each way types this evening for Rod Millman if the afternoon has not proved profitable for you. Rod’s last two runners have won (+9): Bubbles Arcade (5.30 Newton Abbbot), Airshow (5.55 Chepstow) & Duke Of Bronte (7.40 Chepstow)
Another pointer to consider today:
Michael Appleby secured a 59/1 double at the corresponding meeting at York last year – runners there today: Big Country (2.20) & Western Prince (4.40)
Be lucky but as always – Be alert!
