York Dante Day 2 : Stats & Trends

Day 2 trends/trainers/shortlists and micro qualifiers

Below you can find stats, trends and trainer pointer for the two Class 2 handicaps on Day 2, including my own ‘application’ of the trends, with shortlists. Following that you can find the ‘qualifiers’ against the micro angles previously detailed HERE>>>

I have also added Horse Race Base (H1,H2, H3) Top 3 ratings and Geegeez Speed (G1, G2, G3) Top 3 ratings, where applicable. This is just added info to use as you please, and is some indication that on what the horse has done recently, against such ratings, they’re top 3 in today’s race – but of course there will be horses open to improvement also etc. Just a guide.

As always hopefully this info helps you land on a winner or two.

Applying the trends…

IF and it may be a big if, the 25+ career run stat upholds (and the place numbers for 24< are not too bad) that would point to six horses in this race…

Copper Knight, Autumn Flight, Count Dorsay G1 H2, Muscika, Venturous, Indian Sounds G3

Ignoring that pointer and looking at those who placed at least once last four starts, 4+ career wins, 4+ handicap wins, top 5 LTO would point to… 8/12, 8/41 runners, 15p…

Copper Knight, Autumn Flight, Count Dorsay G1 H2, Venturous, Kind Review (only one not above), Indian Sounds G3

Those horses with 2+ runs over CD…

Copper Knight, Count Dorsay G1 , Muscika, Illusionist G3, Venturous, Queens Order

Not the strongest of trends races for all that being Top 5 in the weights has been a positive…

Matthew Flinders G2, Brunch, Johan, Whats The Story H2, Kynren G1

Of those, carrying 9-0 to 9-5… Matthew Flinders G2, Brunch H3, Kynren G1
