The horse racing cranks up further this week with the first big meeting of the winter jumps meeting, the three day November Meeting at Cheltenham, which begins on Friday.
This week’s article looks at some interesting trainer stats from the Cheltenham November meeting (published on Friday) and a couple of profitable trainer micro angles. As ever I also have a couple of trainers whose horses are usually in prime form at this time of year, a profile horse who is handicapped to win on the all-weather, when he gets his optimum conditions and an ante post selection for Saturday’s big handicap the BetVictor Gold Cup (published, tomorrow).
Trainers to Note in the Next 7 Days
Here are a couple of trainers whose runners are worth noting in the coming week or so one for the jumps and one for the all-weather.
1. Pam Sly has a good win strike rate with her National Hunt runners in all races in the two week period (14 days) either side of today’s date. Since 2014 she has had –
7 winners from 22 runners
Strike Rate 32%
SP Profit +40.23
A/E 2.78 (profit to BSP +49.99)
Place Strike Rate 50%
2. Ralph Beckett is a trainer whose 2-year-olds do well in the two week period (14 days) either side of today’s date. Since 2014 he has –
12 winners from 50 runners
Strike Rate 24%
SP Profit +51.62
A/E 1.32 (profit to BSP +99.44)

That win strike rate can be improved further by just focusing in on his juveniles running at Kempton –
