Stat of the Day, 11th January 2013
Red Somerset was a clunker yesterday, I'm afraid. Friendless in the on-course market and slow away from the stalls. The veteran never got involved in the race until it was far too late and even then when staying on at the death only passed one rival.
We're staying on the A/W today, but we're heading North to the West Midlands for Dunstall Park's last race of the evening. We've currently got ten runners set to battle it out over a mile and a half (plus 50 yards, of course!) for the...
Of all the trainers with runners at Wolverhampton tonight, David O'Meara possesses the best strike rate in the last two years. In this time he has saddled up 13 winners from 41 (31.7%) and has returned a 17pt profit at level stakes = 41.5%.
In fact, he has been represented here at Wolverhampton thirteen times in 2013 already, recording nine wins and three places, such is the current form of the yard.
David has two runners at the track this evening and whilst Art History has a decent chance of a place in the 6.30 race (6/1 at present), our focus is on the quick re-appearance of Icy Quiet an hour later.
Icy Quiet ran really well when finishing a close third to the re-opposing Easydoesit over this course and distance on Monday and is now well weighted to reverse that defeat. This bay mare was only beaten by a length and a quarter on Monday and now tackles her conqueror 6lbs better off, so a repeat of that run should be enough today.
I expect her to attract some decent market support as the day goes on, so the advice is a 1pt win bet on Icy Quiet at the current (8.45am) best price of 9/2 BOG with Bet Victor, as she's already as low as 10/3 in places, but for further information, please......
