Stat of the Day, 20th April 2015
An excellent week was rounded off with another steady if unsuccessful outing for Lahayeb at Nottingham on Saturday. He was quite badly outpaced in the mid-section of the race and was left with a mountain to climb. He did, however stick to the task and passed a few rivals as he stayed on well to the finish.
The front pair were already well gone, but Lahayeb had enough left to get within 5 lengths to finish 3rd at 9/4, half a point shorter than advised.
Monday is the start of a new week and it looks tough today, but we've got one for you in the...
And a 7/2 BOG bet on Resolute Reformer, who comes here on the back of an easy 15 lengths victory at Carlisle last Tuesday and is now sent out quickly by wily trainer Stuart Coltherd to follow up here at Hexham.
In the last fortnight, Stuart's runners are 163111, of which his chasers are 3111 and he excels in NH handicap contests, saddling up 40 winners from 249 (16.1% SR) for 160.5pts (+64.5% ROI) profit since the start of 2011.
His chasers in that period are 32/161 (19.9 SR) for 131.4pts (+81.6% ROI) with those running over trips of up to 3m2f and priced between 6/4 & 12/1 having a record that reads 28/102 (27.5% SR) for 95pts at an ROI of 93.2%.
Resolute Reformer is 2nd in the weights here today before any jockey claims are made and despite employing the services of a 3lb claimer himself, Stuart Coltherd still finds his runner at thew top of the weights. This isn't necessarily a negative thing, as since the start of 2010 in handicap chases from 2m4f to 3m2f, 3lb claimers on horses in the top 3 of the weights pre-jockey claims and top 2 in the weights after claims are 76/378 (20.1% SR) for profits of 159.2pts (+42.1% ROI) when sent off at odds of 6/4 to 12/1.
Resolute Reformer comes here in good form having won so easily last week and he's priced up at 7/2 BOG to repeat the feat. At midnight, that price was on offer with BetVictor, Paddy Power & Skybet...
