Cheltenham Open Meeting: Some Stats Pointers

***

HANDICAPS

Before delving into some trainer stats, let’s have a general look at the odds (ISP) of the winners:

14/1 or under: 341 bets /40 wins/11.73% SR/+7.46 SP/119 places /34.9% PlaceSR /+57 BFSP /AE 0.97

16/1 -40/1: 336 bets / 5 wins / 1.49% SR / -210 SP /45 places / 13.39% PSR/ AE 0.36

Over 40/1: 70 bets / 0 wins / 1 place

***

It appears clear that bigger priced horses struggle at this meeting and that the market is usually a decent enough guide in these handicaps. Of course the odd one goes in, but they are very hard to find! (give yourself a pat on the back if you do pick one out)

The five trainers to have winners priced between 16/1 and 40/1:

  • P Hobbs: 1/12, 3 places (all ‘place’ stats include any winners)
  • N Twiston-Davies: 1/12, 2 places
  • R Dickin: 1/4, 2 places
  • D Pipe: 1/12, 4 places
  • M J Scudamore: 1/3, 1 place

Of interest:

  • P Nicholls: 0/14, 4 places
  • V Williams: 0/18, 0 places
  • A King: 0/12, 0 places
  • C Tizzard: 0/10, 1 place

***

For now, all trainer stats will focus on horses priced 14/1 or under. This will give a more reliable reflection of how they get on.

    • Thanks Paul – these trainers tend to be creatures of habit at meetings such as this, so we shall see. The odds stats are interesting as well, not a meeting to get too clever at it would appear. You can find the system qualifiers for the micro systems in the Daily Members Report.
