I guess there are a lot of race courses that are out on a limb, as it were, geographically.
Yarmouth is local to me and I know what a pain it is to travel there from anywhere else in the country. I also remember years ago there was a system doing the rounds based on betting the runners of Newmarket based trainers.
The theory being that the big HQ yards would try out their hotshots at Yarmouth because it is relatively local to them.
So this morning I thought I'd run a report on top performing trainers at Yarmouth and see what I come up with.
Amazingly there is a trainer with a 40% strike rate (Ed Walker) at Yarmouth from all runs and another with a 39% strike rate (Mrs L Wadham).
