Stat of the Day, 21st September 2012

Other work commitments meant I'd already gone to press with yesterday's SotD before the meeting at Ayr was abandoned and constraints of time often mean we don't have time to fully research a second/reserve option. I'd rather have a "no bet" day than just throw something at you hastily!

As things stand, Ayr is raceable again today and David O'Meara's excellent stats (see here) are still valid, giving Ingleby Angel (3/1 in the 5.10 race) an excellent chance, I'm not totally convinced that more heavy rain won't fall and since his horse runs in the last race on the card, there is also the chance we'd have another non-runner on our hands.

So, with the inclement weather in mind, I'm taking no chances and we're off to the West Midlands for an evening spin on the polytrack. The contest is a twelve-runner Class 4 Handicap over 7 furlongs (and 32 yards, if we're being precise!) aka the...

7.00 Wolverhampton

The first name I always look for at Wolverhampton is Roger Varian. He's had an explosive start to his training career and his best results seem to be here at Wolverhampton. He has had 18 runners at the Dunstall Park track, returning 7 winners ( 39% Strike rate) and a total of 12 of them have made the frame (66.7%). Backing each of Roger's 18 runners here for £10 level stakes would have already made you a profit of some £167, a healthy 93% profit on your investments.

Roger has two runners this evening, Afraah runs at 8.30 and is sure to give a good account of himself, but the current odds of 2/1 leave little room for manoeuvre/error, whilst our selection runs some 90 minutes earlier in the 7.00 race, where we're going with Emkanaat.

Emkanaat is a lightly raced 4yr old: just 10 starts to date, wining two of those and placing in five of them. This horse has only ran at Wolverhampton once before, scoring a fairly comfortable win over course and distance ahead of several horses who have run well since. Recent form since then has been decent enough off today's current mark, making the first four home in all three races since that C&D win in July.

Based on his own record and that of the trainer, we're happy enough to take this as an E/W possibility today. We know he won't have things entirely his own way and he'll have to dig a bit deep to get home , but this is reflected in his current price of 20/1 BOG with William Hill, but you can always...

    Hi Chris – Would have missed yesterdays selection but you should not feel any need to offer reason for a “no selection day”. You provide an excellent service and it’s great fun waiting for the daily results (thanks to Matt also).

    Stunning pick , on both in fact and two of the biggest price plunges of the day

    If Nuno Gomes nets first for Blackburn it’ll be a splendid trixie landed

    Great double all the same

    Well done fella Thxs !!

    I am new to stats of the day and it is unusual to start off with a 10/1 winner. If this is the quality of the service for free then I’M all for it. Many thanks and keep up the good work

      Hi Robert

      We often beat the market (by quite a bit), and we find plenty of winners. But we also get losers and rarely tip horses at 20/1!

      In any case, welcome aboard – it’s great to have many of Michael’s subscribers join us.

      Hi Stuart,

      Based on previous comments by your good self, I just knew you’d be on the double. I allowed myself a wry smile at your continued good fortune when I saw the results!

    Great work Chris – in addition to the e.w. bet on Emkanaat decided to have a 50p win Trixie on all three horses mentioned in SOTD – you know the rest … fantastic result!

    A second human who can walk on water – Many Thanks

    Dammit, I missed the trixie. I wuz robbed! ;o)

    Well done, Bob – I will pay more attention in future. In my defence I was desperately short of time yesterday, but that doesn’t excuse not reading the SOTD text carefully, word for word. Shame on me.

    Chris, apparently it was a better than great job, but I can’t think of a suitable superlative.

    Anyone know how Matt’s better half is doing? Here’s hoping no news is good news.
