So following on from yesterdays column today I'm going to try and find us some profitable flat trainers to follow in September.
So my initial thoughts are that I want trainers who have been profitable recently, so I'm looking at data for the last three years.
Turns out there are a lot of trainers that have made level stakes profits in September over the last three years.
My second thought was, lets try and find some that have been profitable in each of the last three years.
Also to make it more worthwhile I only looked at trainers who had, had 50 or more runs over the three years and who had an overall ROI at level stakes of 15% or greater.
This was more of a challenge.
I only found one trainer who made a return on investment in each of the three years and that was Jamie Osborne, who actually made more than 30% in each year.
I've also added to my little watch list Alan Bailey, who was profitable in 2011 and 2013 but had a one point loss in 2012.
And John Ryan who was profitable in 2011 and 2013 but finished level in 2012.
Following these three trainers over the past three years would have given the following results.
Bets = 231
Wins = 36
Strike Rate = 15.5%
Profit at iSP = 98.08
Return on Investment at iSP = 42.4%
The strike rate is pretty low, so we can expect long losing runs but the ROI is strong!
I'm going to follow these three trainers this month and see how they did at the end of the month.
