Saturday Big Race Trends

Our first taste of the Flat. 

Below are trends for the Lincoln and The Spring Mile. The stats for the latter have kindly been provided by one of you good readers, Martin. I don’t plan on tipping in the race – one big field cavalry charge is enough for my brain to handle most of the time – but there are some useful pointers there for you.

    • Hi Martin, feel free to email them over and I can add them to the post. I don’t think I will have time to look at trends so your input would be great! I am about to embark on an ‘Aintree afternoon’ while the cricket ticks along in the background.

  • great game of cricket, cant fathom why Rasheed bowled 4 overs at 9 an over and moeen only 2 at 5 an over and a wicket – lets hope it doesn’t come back to bite us…

    on to the racing, excellent stats Josh thank you, always a great race and stats will be so helpful, my system is a lot simpler but seems to work well, middle to low draw, course form and ideally won a race in March or April in past seasons…

    Cant wait for the Flat to start now and with Aintree too a great couple of weeks…
