some ‘eye catchers’ in here…

Nothing beats looking at some trends/stats for the Welsh National on a Christmas morning! 2 coffees down. In truth if I don’t do this now I don’t know when else I will squeeze it in and you and I both know I rather enjoy a bit of stats digging, whatever the day. 

There are some great pointers for this race and we shall see if they can help up ‘shortlist’ this year…

  1. The only one I would add on there is 17/19 had 1 or 2 runs this season favouring the 2 to 1 on a 12 to 5 ratio.

  2. Hope you had a good Christmas Josh and all your family. For Boxing day I fancy Gold Present, Looksnowtlikebrian, Yala Enki and Better Days.
    Keep up the good work!! (I would have subscribed but we have had security issues with Paypal in the past.
