Mal Boyle stats – Wednesday 15th

Hawk High has been grabbing my attention overnight as far as Cheltenham is concerned, with the ground coming right for Tim Easterby’s 2014 ‘Fred Winter’ winner who is worth a 33/1 each way punt to small stakes in the Coral Cup at 2.50.

The rest of my Cheltenham work can be found via my Sporting Life column which should be available via the link on my Twitter Page from around 9.00 (hopefully).  Aside from that, my Placepot analysis (written yesterday) is already available there for all to see.

Ian Williams carried on the good work for us yesterday with a 7/1 winner from just two runners.  Four of Ian’s last eight runners have won, creating level stake profits of 22 points during the period.  Ian saddles two at Huntingdon this afternoon: So Celebre (1.45) & Rockrollrambo (4.25).

5/8–Caroline Bailey (+8) has three runners entered tomorrow (two at Huntingdon and one at Cheltenham) – I will update bright and early on Wednesday morning

Sue Smith snared a 44/1 treble from just the three runners on Sunday – I wrote: Not represented today but these could be given the green light: 3 tomorrow (two at Sedgefield & one at Cheltenham) – two at Cheltenham (Wednesday) and one there on Thursday, before rounding the week off with two at Uttoxeter. NOW SADDLES 28/1 chance Vintage Clouds in the 2.50 at Cheltenham today

Ian Williams is 3/6 of late (+16), whilst it’s worth noting that his three beaten runners were returned at 50/1 (twice) & 66/1.  I wrote: None today – three possibles tomorrow, six on Wednesday, three on Thursday and eight on Friday.  NOW SADDLES two at Wolverhampton today: Masamah (5.45) & Monjeni (6.45)

By the by, Chris Gordon now takes a break until Friday when he has one runner entered up on the day: Remiluc in the ‘Martin Pipe Conditional’ event at Cheltenham – I’ll keep you posted!

Don’t forget the each way nod I gave you for Captain Redbeard (5.30 at Cheltenham today) yesterday – reasons why offered yesterday – just go to Monday’s service.

Be lucky (especially at Cheltenham) but as ever – be aware!

Congratulations Mal

Mal Boyle stats – Monday 13th

I hope a few of you weaved your way around the Venetia Williams runners yesterday to snare a 111/1 treble!

PROMISED UPDATE FOR TUESDAY’S 20/1 EACH WAY CALL: 

Captain Redbeard (5.30) the horse in question, has gained five of his seven victories under good to soft conditions, coming here on a hat trick, though trainer Stuart Coltherd has already achieved that achievement, his last three runners having won.  Sam Coltherd has ridden the horse on all five successful occasions when winning and 20/1 is a perfectly good price to offer, especially with only one of the last ten renewals having been won by the favourite.  There is every chance that Captain Redbeard will be prominent early doors whereby ‘laying off’ at half the price (if that’s the route you want to take) could be an option quite soon into the contest.  It’s a beautiful (drying) day here in the south-west on Monday and though it is liklier to be cloudier tomorrow, no rain is on the radar at the time of writing, whereby genuine good to soft ground should be the order of the day.

In the meantime, you might like to look at the chance of Tommy Silver of Friday which has been quietly (very quietly) been nibbled for the ‘Martin Pipe Conditional’ on Friday.

Some trainer activity to report today relating to handlers who have been in form of late:

Chris Gordon has won with six of his last eleven runners (+12 LSP) – 5 runners today: Tara Bridge (2.40 Stratford), Starkie (3.05 Plumpton), Ballyheigue Bay (3.40 Plumpton), Howlongisafoot (3.50 Stratford) & Funny Oyster (4.10 Plumpton)

5/8–Caroline Bailey (+8) has three runners entered tomorrow (two at Huntingdon and one at Cheltenham) – two more at Fakenham on Friday

Sue Smith snared a 44/1 treble from just the three runners yesterday – not represented today but these could be given the green light: 3 tomorrow (two at Sedgefield & one at Cheltenham) – two at Cheltenham (Wednesday) and one there on Thursday, before rounding the week off with two at Uttoxeter.

Ian Williams is 3/6 of late (+16), whilst it’s worth noting that his three beaten runners were returned at 50/1 (twice) & 66/1.  None today – three possibles tomorrow, six on Wednesday, three on Thursday and eight on Friday.

INTERESTING STATS FOR TODAY:

STRATFORD: 

4/10–Warren Greatrex (+5) – 1 runner there today – 16/1 chance Attest (2.10)

PLUMPTON:

10/52–Gary Moore – runners: Rude And Crude (around 13/8 in the 3.05) & Knightly Pleasure (13/2 thereabouts at 4.10)

CHEPSTOW: 

7/38–Colin Tizzard (+15) – 1 runner there today – 9/2 chance Allchilledout (5.00)

4/12–Matt Sheppard (+29) – 1 runner – 50/1 chance Mecca’s Stowaway (3.25) – Matt’s last two runners have won (+13)

At these prices, it won’t cost a lot to have a little bit of interest today to keep your mind occupied before the Festival stats on the morrow

Back later….

Mal Boyle stats – Sunday 12th

My daily stats will appear in my Sporting Life column (except on Monday when the work will be shown here) between now until the end of Cheltenham Festival week for which the local weather forecast is for minimal rain during the next ten days, with no sign of frosts on the horizon.

 

Hoping to have one for you in one of the tricky handicap contests on Tuesday at Cheltenham – watch this space for news of  the potential 20/1 chance…

 

Additional stats for Sunday: 

Four of the last six runners trainer by Caroline Bailey have won (+6) – two runners today at Warwick: Robin Of Locksley (3.25) & Carli King (3.55)

 

Percentage returns at today’s venues during the relevant study periods for favourites against the number of races contested:

Market Rasen: 41.8% (18 meetings)

Warwick: 39.7% (12 meetings)

Market Rasen last year: Although seven of the nine favourites were beaten, all seven winners scored at a top price of 8/1, five of which were sent off at 5/2 or less.  That said, the only odds on (2/7) Micky Hammond trained favourite was beaten.

Warwick last year: Two of the six favourites prevailed at 11/10 (Venetia Williams) & 11/4 (Ian Williams), whilst the other gold medallists on the six race card were returned at 7/2 (Neil Mulholland), 11/2 (Mrs S Stilgoe), 8/1 (Phil Middleton) & 12/1 (Kerry Lee)

 

Readers of my Twitter page were alerted towards this column today relating to next Friday’s renewal of the ‘Albert Bartlett’ for the following reason:

Races come and go at the Festival and trends emerge but one of the disappointing aspects of last year’s results were the Placepot dividends – until Friday that is.  Even then, the £1,680.90 dividend only resulted via two races which turned the apple-cart upside down.

The closing ‘Martin Pipe’ event is a typical handicap event that can produce results to inflate any dividend, though it was the ‘Albert Bartlett’ result that really changed the course of Placepot dividends on the week.

Just 6.3% of the units there were ‘live’ going into the race survived the contest.  The starting prices were as follows: 11/1 – 33/1 – 20/1.  That’s all it takes sometimes.

Speculative investors foolishly look for outsiders to finish in the frame in every race but that does not necessarily have to happy to produce a great return.

Be lucky but as always – be aware!

Mal Boyle stats – Saturday 11th

My daily stats will appear in my Sporting Life column (except on Monday when the work will be shown here) between now until the end of Cheltenham Festival week for which the local weather forecast is for minimal rain during the next ten days, with no sign of frosts on the horizon.

 

Hoping to have one for you in one of the tricky handicap contests on Tuesday at Cheltenham – watch this space for news of  the potential 20/1 chance…

 

Additional stats for Saturday (hoping you were on the four short priced winners for Nick Alexander & Lucinda Russell yesterday!): 

I have some big priced horses highlighted for you in my Sporting Life column which should be available by 9.30 (hopefully) via the link on my Twitter page – or just go to sportinglife.com later this morning and the link should be on the front page of the racing section.

They include a 14/1 chance who is the trainer’s only runner at the track today having saddled six winners at the corresponding meeting in as many years (top trainer there during the study period).

Paul Nicholls is well clear of his rivals at the corresponding Sandown meeting in recent times – full details via the link later this morning,

One of today’s trainers boasts stats of 5/10 (8 LSP) at the relevant track this term – two decent priced runners today, whilst one Newmarket trained runner at Wolverhampton stands out from the crowd at an each way price relating to today’s pair of all weather cards.

Percentage returns at today’s venues during the relevant study periods for favourites against the number of races contested:

Ayr: 46.8% (12 meetings)

Hereford: 42.6% (8 meetings)

Sandown: 36.2% (7 meetings)

Chelmsford: 32.5% (6 meetings since February 1st)

Wolverhampton: 30.8% (11 meetings since February 1st)

 

On this day last year: 28 races – 31 favourites – 8 winners – Odds on ratio: 2/5

The biggest priced winner at Ayr was returned at just 11/2 – albeit only one favourite obliged

Five of the seven winners at Sandown last year were sent off at a top price of 5/1, whilst the other two gold medallists were anything but no-hopers at 9/1 & 14/1

Mal Boyle stats – Friday 10th

My daily stats will appear in my Sporting Life column between now until the end of Cheltenham Festival week for which the local weather forecast is for minimal rain during the next ten days, with no sign of frosts on the horizon.

 

Additional stats for Friday: 

Nick Alexander has nine runners on Ayr’s card today having secured an 8/1 double on the corresponding card twelve months ago.  Nicky runners at Ayr today:

Just Brooke & Left Back (2.10), Andhaar & Christmas In Usa (3.20), Benny’s Secret (3.25), Buffalo Ballet & Marlee Massie (4.30), Gold Opera (5.00) & Another Mattie (5.35)

Even better news relating to Lucinda Russell who only has four runners to choose from on the Ayr card, Lucinda having scored with inmates at 20/1 & 3/1 at the corresponding meeting last year, equating to an 83/1 double.  Lucinda’s runners at Ayr today: Well Above Par (2.10), Vertigo (2.45), Deepsand (3.55) & Mumgoes Debut (5.00)

On this day last year: 28 races – 31 favourites – 8 winners – Odds on ratio: 2/5 – The Ayr Placepot paid £9,887.70 – food for thought?

Although I only offer three days of work for the ‘Life’ these days, I have long since been the only surviving freelance writer for them going back to the start of the Millenium.

Three years later I was the first person (and still am as far as I know) who had their stats published in a four page centre-fold in the Festival programme each day, nothwithstanding working for the Channel 4 Cheltenham Festival team the following year.

Websites come and go alongside their respective ‘experts’ but of you want to read the thoughts and stats of the person that has negotiated ‘ all the fences’ safely for the thick end of 20 years – you know where to come next week – my Twitter pages will have directions to all the details you really need, with all due respect to other columnists out there in the jungle.

Best of luck today and particularly – next week.

 

Be lucky but as always, be aware!

Mal Boyle stats – Sunday 5th

The usual weekend ‘Stat Attack’ will be available later this morning via my Twitter page or at sportinglife.com – if using  the latter option, go to racing – should come up on the front page from 9.45 (ish) or via the tips section on the right hand side of that page.

Other factors to take into account today ‘oop north’!:

SEDGEFIELD:

Micky Hammond secured a 79/1 treble on the corresponding card last year – 3 runners today: Longueville Flyer (2.20), Justforjames (2.50) & Wig Wam Wiggle (5.20)

Other trainers with first class records at Sedgefield this season (aside from those offered in my Stat Aattack column):

3/5–Jamie Snowden (+19) – 1 runner: Midnight Silver (3.50)

2/3–Ian Williams (+1) – 1 runner: Molly The Dolly (5.20)

Mal Boyle stats – Saturday 4th

The usual weekend ‘Stat Attack’ will be available later this morning via my Twitter page or at sportinglife.com – if using  the latter option, go to racing – should come up on the front page from 9.30 (ish) or via the tips section on the right hand side of that page.

This is an unusual time of the year given that Cheltenham is just around the corner now, which is ‘advertised’ by the fact Nicky Henderson only sends two runners to his local track (Newbury) today.

I have unearthed three outsiders for Michael Dods at Newcastle however, the trainer having secured 25/1-8/1-11/2 winners at the track in recent weeks; namely Dream Team (5.45), Trinity Star (7.15) & Kazaman (8.15)

Aside from that, there is plenty to get your teeth into via the Stat Attack….

Be lucky but as ever – be aware!
