Stat of the Day, 13th September 2012

Wrong horse syndrome again yesterday, as the 20/1 pig won but the 11/1 SotD drifting selection managed to bag third mercifully, for advised each way money, to save a hint of grace from a frustrating statistical situation (don't say that after a few pints).

No matter, onwards and downwards; and it's the 'roller coaster' for us today, and the…

4.15 Epsom

With thanks to the excellent Stat Attack feature in horseracebase.com for today's effort, we'll side with a horse which has managed to win four of his eight races in this grade... and placed in the other four.

Step forward Majuro, a horse that goes on any ground, and is highly effective at today's seven furlong trip.

Many of Majuro's best runs have come from the front and, whilst he's not obviously well drawn in trap eight, there is very little early pace and a reasonably short field to boot. So, I'm hopeful he can get out in front and stay there in a grade that he's often able to boss.

There's very little else to say on this one. The trainer, Charles Smith, is having his first runner at the track (seeking his first winner after just six entries) and the jockey, David Bergin, is a first season apprentice who's been riding winners. Indeed, he's won on eleven of his 65 rides so far, and looks one to keep an eye on.

One other thing to note is that the horse is owned by gambler, Willie McKay, so if the money comes it's a good sign. If it doesn't, it probably isn't... 😉

In what is a pretty weak race, we've a horse which is eight from eight in the places in this grade, so it would be churlish not to opt for an each way tickle. 13/2 BOG is available with our man Victor, but do check for the current state of play from the link below.

    £56 has already moved this from 8/1 – 11/2 on b/f.
    i follow the stable and owners horses closely and if it gets any shorter i doubt it will run and if it does i would be really surprised if it was trying.
    why oh why do people back these horses on b/f trying to beat the price and then lay it off,the liquidity isn’t there overnight.
    BACK THEM WITH THE BOOKIES AND SPREAD THE BETS AROUND.

    Matt, looking at my “gambelling” account that I opened on a drab day at Goodwood when you were the worse for wear, I think I’m (you & Chris) are getting pretty good at this. I’m think of jacking in the day job and start gambelling professionally. What do you think? Rob.

      I think you should steer clear of Mr Gambel, Mr B, unless you need a project manager or a beer brother, of course!

      Glad you’re profiting from mine and Chris’ public folly. We are too!

    In all serious, 1 thing that goes a miss on SOTD is that even though I know you personally i know nothing about horse racing, I follow you and Chris because you talk a good game and deliver. I also get peeved by muppets that slag you off and do not stand up to the challenge. But the number 1 thing you guys do is teach me about horse racing, surely that is the point of the SOTD?
