Applying the trends

A profile of horses aged 8 or younger, 0-2 runs this season, 1+ run at Grade A/1 level, 2-5 runs this calendar year and ran over 2m6f or shorter LTO, would point to 10/13 (10/67 runners, 22p) inc every winner since 2013 and IF upholding would point to a shortlist of six…

The Shunter H1, Assemble, Battleoverdoyen, Easy Game, Mitchouka, Annamix

All but Mitchouka ran at Punchy or Killarney LTO which is a positive also.

Those that ran in a maiden or novice LTO has been a positive. Snugsborugh Hall is the only one to have done in the field
