STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
4.15 Sedge – Ange Des Malberaux – WON 9/2>11/2 (all of this trainer’s handicappers are worth a second glance at this time of year, based on the stats for last three years in any case. Trainer is 3/14, 7 places with handicap hurdlers at track last 5 years)
Trainer Track Profile: Jumps 2016/17
Well 75 pages, 17,284 ‘words’ and many hours in my HRB account later, this year’s publication is finally complete. I have a few more things to work through before I release it but all being well it will be available from this Thursday/Friday.
Anyway, for now, the relevant horses thrown up from my stats for…
3.40 – Arboretum (micro angles) UP (10/1>5/1… he doesn’t jump very well and was held up right out the back- double wammy. Trying to close on a dodgy jumper is never wise. Wonder if they will try and make all one day. Clearly a moderate horse, not one to trust in jumping stakes)
4.50- Virtually Ours (NHF) (from geegeez…trainer 7/27,14 places all runners having first career start under rules in last two years. Trainer is 0/10, 0 places in last two weeks, maybe a slight concern) (UP – market told there, big drift to 10s- albeit when it hit that price I had a ‘just in case’ 1/4 point on. Jefferson clearly not in any form as yet…)
2.20 – Larkhall (all handicaps, + micro angles) (UP 5/1)
TTP: MAIN TRAINER SYSTEMS
2.40 – Braes of Lochalsh

That will be all for Tuesday.
