Here are some Trainer trends from the meeting from 2009 to 2016. There have been 126 winners in that period from 1324 runners and the top six trainers in the number of winners have provided 59 of those winners coming from just 297 runners.
The top trainer at the meeting is Paul Nicholls who is ten ahead of his nearest rival in the op trainer list Nigel Twiston-Davies.
Paul Nicholls –
23 winners from 74 runners
Strike rate 31%
SP Profit +14.4
A/E 1.25 (profit to BSP + 18.47)
Place Strike Rate 51%
That’s a pretty decent win strike rate but are there any angles from that record that stand out? He usually has his novice chasers fit and ready to win at this meeting and he’s had –
8 winners from 18 runners
Strike Rate 44%
SP Profit +12.38
A/E 1.69 (profit to BSP +13.51)
Place Strike Rate 67%
On the negative side, I would be wary of his handicap chasers with only 1 winner from 14 runners 2 placed since 2009.
He has started the autumn in good form and I fully expect him to bag a few winners at this years meeting in particular note his runners in the novice chases.
There are three trainers with interesting records in handicap races at the meeting.
Neil Mulholland (Handicap Chases) –
4 winners from 9 runners
Strike Rate 44%
SP Profit +16.5
A/E 3.48 (profit to BSP +18.95)
Place Strike Rate 56%
I will be interesting to see how his handicap chasers go this year, as he comes into this years meeting in fairly poor form. At the time of writing, he was –
1 win from 53 runners
Strike Rate 2%
SP Loss -46.5
Place Strike Rate 17%
in the past 30 days.
Two other trainers worth noting in handicaps are;
Paul Nicholls – (Handicap Hurdles) –
4 winners from 13 runners
Strike Rate 31%
SP Profit +10.16
A/E 1.47 (profit to BSP +12.08)
Place Strike Rate 54%
Nigel Twiston – Davies (Handicap Hurdlers) –
4 winners from 16 runners
Strike Rate 25%
SP Profit +20.2
A/E 2.52 (profit to BSP +25.96)
Place Strike Rate 38%
Until next time, be lucky.
