[Free Post] August Trainers To Follow?

x2 August trainers to follow…

August is here and with that in mind I’ve found two flat trainers below that it ‘could’ pay to keep onside in the month ahead.

My ‘monthly’ trainers have been doing well. I didn’t share my ‘July’ trainers too widely, as I’d included them in an article for On Course Profits Magazine, so only their readers and my members got hold of them.

Collectively, they had a decent month… 15/60, 21p, +44.61 Betfair Exchange Starting Price.

Its fine margins in this game though, especially when some angles have no ‘odds cap’. Those stats were helped by Paul Midgely’s Birkenhead, who won the jumps jockeys Nunthorpe at 40/1 BFSP. Although he also had the 2nd at a big price who was also a qualifier. The great game.

May showed a loss of -7.48 points, June a small profit of +2.65 BFSP.

That takes the total for my ‘monthly trainers’ since 1st October to… +93.35 points if backing them all.

If messing around with £2 bets at BFSP, a respectable +£186.70p or so. Not bad.

We still haven’t had a clunker since October, which will happen one of these months, but with any luck the two trainers below can add more profit to that monthly pile… (as always, daily qualifiers will be posted within my Members’ posts, but they shouldn’t be too arduous to find)


August Trainers

Nigel Tinkler

  • August runners
  • Flat Turf Only

Nigel Tinkler does have the odd biggie fly in and indeed place. Those sent off bigger than 25/1 are 1/38, 5p in the period – that winner was last season at a monster 125/1 SP, 350/1 BFSP. There have been four further place horses at big prices. He could easily have a -12 year with the biggies, or as with last season, one falls in. What you do with those is up to you.

Nigel has generally been consistent within the angle above, esp with the place %. 2020 was a blank and possibly something was up with the string at the time, but as always, history is no guarantee of future success. Last season was a bit silly, but who’s to say he won’t do the same again…


William Muir & C Grassick

  • August runners
  • Flat Turf Only
  • All races
  • Horse aged 2-5
  • Odds: 14/1 or shorter industry starting price (bigger: 0/60, 10p)

William Muir has been nothing but consistent at this time of year within the angle above, hopefully more of the same this year.



GL with any bets and in the month ahead,

    1. Ah, nooooo! Yes, I’ll take that, 7/1 BFSP, 7s/8s this morning, 1st blinkers did the trick there in a so so race, ground probably helped also given experience/hard race fit. A good start for Muir, we shall see if he can build on it, early days yet! Plenty of time for the wheels to come off !
