The free report below takes a look at a few different jockey angles of interest, from some top level stats to the more micro.
One of you sent me an email a few days back with an article written by Nick Pullen which discussed the Old Course vs New Course and with that in mind I did do some digging on jockey’s records on Days 1+2 (old course) and 3+4 (New Course), and indeed a jockeys record on different days of the meeting. (without that email I am not sure if that idea/approach would have crossed my mind. But it is a very valid one) These records will often be linked to the trainers they ride for and the types of races they target on certain days. And of course the fact that the two courses are very different, and some jockeys may simply ride one better than the other.
As an example, you could just back all of Sam Twiston-Davies’ rides on the Wednesday… 4/13,6p, +19 BFSP
Having spent the best part of 3 hours pulling this together I suppose there should now be a ‘jockeys corner’ in the daily Cheltenham Festival posts, whereby I will do my best to highlight various runners of interest, using those stats as a starting point.
Anyway, you should be able to open it at the link below. Hopefully you find some of the content useful and it helps you find a nice winner or two..
To the report…
