Stat of the Day, 7th May 2013

Duke of Destiny ran well enough yesterday at 6/1, but could only manage 4th place. If I'm being critical, I'd say that he was possibly held up a little too long before being switched inside for a challenge late on. He was fairly flying at the death and although I'm not sure if he'd have won with an earlier dash for the line, I think he could have been closer.

However, it's still a loss either way and so we look to make amends with a trip to Sunny Devon for a Class 3 Handicap Chase. The ground is pretty hard after the dry spell (good to firm, firm in parts) and just 5 runners are set to line up to tackle 2 miles 3.5 furlongs in the...

6.55 Exeter:

Colin Tizzard has an excellent recent record in chase contests at Exeter, notching up six winners from twelve in the last year, generating profits of some 20.08pts (+167.33% ROI), whilst son Joe has been on board for ten of those rides, securing all six wins for the yard with three other place finishes.

So, when Joe rides a chaser at Exeter for dad Colin, he has a 60% win strike rate for +22.08pts (+220.8% ROI) and a 90% place strike rate. They team again this evening for two races: Quite by Chance is in with a chance of landing the 8.25 bumper race (currently 7/2 2nd fav), but they've just the one chaser here: Sew On Target.

Sew On Target ran a very creditable 4th off today's mark at Cheltenham last time out on much softer ground than today and a furlong and a half longer. He'll appreciate the quicker ground and the drop back in trip today (he's 1/1 over today's distance) and has won one and placed once from two starts on good to firm ground.

The jockey/trainer record here allied to the fact there's only 5 runners means we're not getting rich today, but I think that 9/4 BOG (generally) is a fair price forĀ Sew On Target, so I'm having a 1pt win bet with Paddy Power, but if you're funds are elsewhere, simply...
