We have racing at Musselburgh this afternoon, so today I'm going to revisit the pointers that Nick Hardman gave us a few weeks ago regarding trainers at this meeting.
Nick pointed us at a number of trainers that perform well at Musselburgh, with details of what types they excel with.
One of those trainers has runners today so we will look at the stats for Philip Kirby.
Nick's advice was to back Philip Kirby handicappers over 7 furlongs and longer.
Looking at the numbers I see that Mr Kirby concentrates on Handicaps, with 78 runs in Handicaps and only 7 in non Handicaps. (Musselburgh, last 4 years)
All of the non Handicap runners have lost.
The other pointer was to only bet at 7 furlongs or longer.
In fact there have only been two runs at below 7 furlongs, both lost.
Following the prescribed rules would have given the following returns over the past 4 years.
Runs = 76
Wins = 20
Strike Rate = 26.3%
Profit at iSP = 67.66
ROI iSP = 89.03%
Today Philip has…
Muss 4.10 Pass Muster (2 mile Handicap)
Muss 4.40 Iftikaar (7 furlong Handicap)
