A Focus on Jim Crowley
Given his superb Royal Ascot, now seems as good a time as any to look at former Champion Jockey, Jim Crowley. As always with such research the aim is to provide useful information that may help you and I back a few more winners.
The foundations are strong…
If you had backed every ride of his since the start of 2008, you’d have lost 850 points to starting price, but won +1296 to BFSP. His mounts perform 9% above market expectations which is no mean feat from 10403 rides (as I type on 22nd June). Jim’s win strike rate on all turf rides since becoming retained rider to Hamdan Al Maktoum is 18%, which is the 6th best in the UK. The average win SR of all jockeys in the period is 10.33%.
