Today we have our regular column from Nick Hardman of Betting School Insiders who has pointed us at some big priced winners since he started contributing.
Take note of today's wisdom…
Not long ago we highlighted William Haggas as a trainer to follow at Musselburgh.
He has had just 11 runners at the track since 2010 and 5 have won, including three of the last four.
In fact he is 1-1 in 2012, 1-1 in 2013 and 1-2 in 2014.
On Friday he has 3 horses entered up at the Scottish track:
6.40pm Meeting Waters
We also highlighted the fine strike rate that Alan Swinbank has up at Musselburgh with his handicap runners over 1m to 1m 6f.
Since 2010, he has had 47 runners in 1m to 1m 6f handicaps and 12 have won giving him a strike rate of 25.53% and a level stakes profit of +20.25pts.
His string is in fine form at present and his last 7 runners at Musselburgh have finished 5113211.
He has the following entries on Friday:
7.10pm Giovanni Jack
The Betfred Sprint Cup is the feature race on Saturday at Haydock and I have looked at the profiles of the winning horses since 1997.
Horses aged 3 to 5 have won 15 of the last 17 renewals and 14 of the last 17 winners were rated 109+.
Since 1997, 13 winners arrived here on the back of a top 3 finish, 15 winners have come from the top 6 in the betting and 14 winners had previous winning form over 6f.
Interestingly, 13 of the last 17 winners had run over further than 6f.
Just one horse ticks all those boxes and that is Henry Candy’s Music Master @8/1.
Favourite Sole Power has never won over 6f, whilst Gordon Lord Byron falls down on the age stat only.
Those that tick all the boxes except for being in the top 6 in the betting are Professor @66/1, Es Que Love @20/1 and Baccarat @25/1, all of whom are available at big odds.
