Saturday pointers >>>

A day late, but better late than never…

In truth the two chases i’ve focused on don’t have that many great pointers, but the trainer records are always useful for those of you who wish to crack on…


Saturday Big Race Stats/Trends/Trainer Pointers


3.15 Newb – Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap Chase

16/184, 45p (prev 15 renewals inc a dead heat)

Note: not the strongest of ‘trends’ races, there’s seemingly no ‘profile’ of sorts to look for really with all sorts taking this down the years…

15/16 ran in race for 5yo+ LTO (4yo+ : 1/31, 5p)

14/16 aged 6-8 (9+ : 2/95, 20p)


Not much of a guide but don’t be put off by bigger price… 11/1-22/1 SP : 6/66, 14p
