Eyecatcher Micro Angles:
The Jane Chapple-Hyam micro system that I gave you last week had its first runner on Saturday with Stamford Raffles winning at Haydock, at odds of 11/4 and the Tom Dascombe/Richard Kingscote Haydock angle had its first two qualifiers on Saturday with Mac O’Polo finishing 3rd at 8/1.
John Gosden Handicap Runners Returning From A 60+ Day Break
The first Micro angle looks at trainer John Gosden’s runners in handicaps that are returning from a 60 day+ absence from the track. Some trainers are good at getting their horses ready to win off a lay off some are not. John Gosden is certainly in the former group and between July & October is the time to follow his runners. What I like about this system is its simplicity and as they say, the best micro systems are those with the least filters.
Trainer John Gosden
Race Type: Handicaps Only
Month: July to October
Days Since Last Run: 60+
Since 2014 the results which such runners are – 14 winners from 36 runners 39% +54.51 A/E 1.93 21 placed 58% (Profit to Betfair SP +67.78). He has had three runners in 2017 – 0 wins 3 runners 3 placed. Hopefully, next month will see the profits roll in again.
Compare that with his runners returning from less than a 60-day break – 33 winners from 187 runners 18% -17.08 A/E 0.87 74 places 40%. We can clearly see from the two A/E figures where the value is with his handicap runners.
