Another Three Winners
We bagged another 3 winners last Friday although it was frustrating to see Trustan Times being badly impeded while in the process of running a big race in the Fixed Brush Hurdle on Saturday. Still, that’s racing for you and we move on. This week we take a look at a trainer with a fantastic record with his hurdlers and I will tell you where my money is going in the Hennessy Gold Cup on Saturday.
When I started writing this post I was looking for an angle for today’s Doncaster meeting and one trainer that caught my eye was John Quinn. His record at Doncaster since 2010 is shown below:
John Quinn has sent out 309 hurdlers in the last 5 seasons compared to 25 chasers and 27 bumper runners. If we look at the performance of his hurdlers at Doncaster priced 20/1 or shorter the stats look even more impressive:
That got me thinking about the performance of his hurdlers at other tracks. He does exceptionally well (strike rate >30%) at many of the Northern tracks, especially Doncaster, Cartmel and Newcastle. His hurdlers are worth noting at the following tracks:
Ayr, Ascot, Cartmel, Doncaster, Haydock, Hexham, Lingfield, Newbury, Newcastle, Perth, Wetherby and Worcester. Backing all his hurdlers at these tracks, priced 20/1 or shorter since 2010 would have resulted in the following profits:
If you want a system with consistency then take a look at the yearly breakdown of John Quinn’s hurdlers at the courses we identified above.
John Quinn has 2 hurdlers entered at Newcastle on Saturday:
2.05pm Aurore D’Estruval @6/1
Saturday also sees the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury and it looks like a terrific renewal. I have taken a look at the profiles of the previous winners and there are two that tick plenty of boxes. The two trends horses I will be backing are:
Newbury 3.00pm Smad Place @8/1 and Rocky Creek @10/1
