Racecourse Template for Windsor (8 April 2019)

Posted by Paul Moon in Blog | Leave a comment

The Racing Horse offers our powerful Racecourse Template for Windsor. 

The course is laid out in an unusual figure of eight, and so in races of 12 furlongs or more horses have to go both left and right handed. The course is very flat but its configuration means that it is quite sharp and doesn’t suit long striding horses.

First we look at the performance of the different age-groups in both handicap and non-handicap races. Over the past 5 years it has been an excellent track for winning favourites APART from those aged 4yos and older racing in handicaps. If we removed those 4yos and older in handicaps we have some amazing statistics with 231 winners from 522 runners for 44% and a level stake profit of +35.22.

Richard Hannon uses four jockey for five runners

Richard Hannon is easily the top trainer at Windsor and tomorrow he runs five at the track. They are Lexington Quest 2.30 at 9/2, Days Of Glory 3.20 at 11/4, Lexington Warlord 3.20 at 20/1, Embour 4.20 at 17/2 and Mr Tyrrell 4.50 at 11/4. Of these five horses they are ridden by four different jockeys which suggests there is no stable jockey per se. It is reasonable to expect Hannon to have one winner at this track given his big winning numbers. Prices are general and much better prices can be found on a search. The trainer is 11-86 for 13% for this year.

Clive Cox and his rank POOR form

Second best trainer at the course is Clive Cox but his horses are a cause for concern. April shows 0-4 for 0%, March 1-24 for 4%, February 1-17 for 6%. We cannot get involved with his horses at the moment, better to watch. He runs the 9/4 favourite Lethal Missile in the last race to be ridden by top jockey at the course Adam Kirby - would you back him given the trainer form?

John Gosden entry

Having sent three to Redcar trainer John Gosden sends just one to Windsor. Will Of Iron was only fifth of seven for a novice at Newcastle (1m, AW) three months ago so this 3yo Invincible Spirit colt does not shout winner. That said, he was sent off as a 3/1 second favourite then dwelt, held up, reminder and green early so it is reasonable to expect a different horse this time around. John Gosden has also won the race twice in the last 10 years.

Our Racecourse Templates have been well received and the intention is to build, get more involved and produce them more regularly when time allows. Over the last couple of years we have since saved our trends information and now have a bank of numbers ready to edit and update for relevance. When the Racecourse Templates and Racing Trends are used together they become even more powerful and recent postings have proved their pertinence!

Using them at the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals was a big success and we hope members found it at least useful/entertaining. From here we will 'up' our information on all big races and especially those on a Saturday. For example, this weekend we have the Scottish Grand National at Ayr and we will cover it as fully as we can, giving members all the tools they need to find the winner, or at least aid the process.
