Stat of the Day, 9th April 2014
We got the best of the price yesterday, as 4/1 Honoured was sent off 3/1, but he failed to stay which was the main question he had to answer, and eventually finished fourth. Today, we're siding with a trainer record in the absence of much form, in the...
James Fanshawe is a brilliant trainer. His record at Kempton is, like his record at many other tracks, excellent. Since 2009, he's saddled 234 runners, 52 of which have won, and another 55 of which have placed.
His winners in that time have been worth 84.81 points profit. In the last year at Kempton, Fanshawe has sent out 52 runners, 11 of which won and another 10 placed. They were worth a profit of 15.13 points.
Fanshawe has started the season well enough, with his three runners to date including a winner and a third, and of his three today - two at Nottingham - he runs Invasor Luck at Kempton this evening. Talk about a well bred colt, this fellow is a son of Breeders' Cup Classic winner, Invasor, out of Lonely Ahead, a mare who is a daughter of 1000 Guineas winner, Sayyedati.
Be that as it may, Invasor Luck also showed immense promise on his only start to date, when just collared in a mile Lingfield maiden. He's up against a couple of horses with form on soft turf and everything to prove on this very different surface, and he's been nibbled in the early markets.
But Betfred still go 9/2 and that looks worth taking, best odds guaranteed.
