Looking at those aged 4-6 with 0-3 runs this season, that covers all winners in last 12 years, we shall see if it holds… that would help cut the field in half, ‘shortlist’ of five…

Kid Commando/ Malaya / Sebastopol/ Hang In There/ Scaramanga

Kid C ran in a C1 LTO which is a positive, rather than being a negative for the others

Trainers (to have won race 12 years/with runners)

  • Countister
  • Malaya / Scaramanga
  • Hang In There



Looking at the 12/12 stats, ‘removes’ just 6, leaving 8…

Commanche Red/ Whatmore/ Valtor/ Adrien Du Pont/ Mister Malarkey / Townshend/ Flying Angel / Django Django

Those with 3-10 chase runs a positive – Commanche Red / Whatmore/ Valtor/ Django Django

Running in a non-hncp LTO a positive – Commanche Red / Django Django

Bing GB ‘bred’ (origin, so born) is a negative, although some caution with such stats… the GBs… Whatmore/ Mister Malarkey / Militarian/ Blacklion

Trainers (to have won race 12 years/with runners)

  • Valtor / Might Bite
  • Django Django
  • Blacklion
