UPDATE: Well sods law would dictate that the day I put up some stats horses of interest they all run appallingly but that is the nature of the beast. These micro angles will tick along in the background and with any luck Fanshawe will make at least 10 points profit or so this year. Aksoun doubled in price which suggested it wasn’t his day. I am no jockey and don’t really get annoyed/upset with poor rides (i take the view that it all evens itself out overtime, and you benefit equally from poor rides in behind your winning selections every now and then) however all I will say is that arguably all 4 of the ‘qualifiers’ received interesting assistance from the saddle, to my untrained eye! Maybe next time 🙂 At the end of the day none of them were good enough to trouble the judge.
Just a quick post to tell you about 4 horses I will be backing at Kempton this afternoon.
No form, just a micro angle I follow and one other that stood out.
James Fanshawe and Freddy Tylicki have been nothing but consistent in Kempton in handicaps since teaming up in 2013.
30 bets/ 10 wins / 17 places / +26 points ISP. 12 points profit last year, 15 in 2013. Solid.
Today there are three selections…
3.20: Angle Delight 10/1
3.55 Celestial Knight 3/1
4.25 Elizona 5/2
Interestingly, Fanshawe is also 8/31, 17 places in the last 5 years with his handicap debutants at Kempton. That makes Angel Delight even more interesting.
Michael Blake also has a handicap debutant runner at Kempton today.
4.55 Aksoun 7/1
In the past 5 years he has only had 4 such runners. 2 have won, and 3 have finished placed. The jockey and trainer are also 5 from 9 when teaming up at Kempton, so a couple of things in his favour.
Right, that is it for this short post. I will stress again…none of those horses above are being backed by me due to their form. Trainer habits is the main way in and these angles should continue to provide steady, if unspectacular, profits for the next few years.
p.s they may all lose today but over time we should win.
p.p.s I have used Geegeez Gold’s reports to find the records of those trainers with hadicap debutants and the trainer/jockey combos. Very easy to do at the click of a button.
