PACAFI DOUBLE at BATH tonight?
The top 5 trainers at Bath over the past 5 years score higher at the course than their national average, and in the case of Mark Johnston (+9%) and Clive Cox (+8%) much higher, so their entries are always worth a first look. Johnston has no entries at Bath on Friday but Clive Cox runs FERNANDO RAH and he is a Pacafi at 11/10 and looks the best bet on the card, though we think the Queen's horse TYNWALD will win also!
TRAINERS of INTEREST
Tony Carroll sends 9 runners to Bath as we go to post, and given his good form he will probably expect a winner. Trainers sending just one runner to course during Goodwood week include, William Haggas, Andrew Balding, Roger Charlton and Kevin Philippart De Foy.
Bath races are usually run at a true gallop and, sometimes, horses start getting a bit too competitive a long way out. The sharp home turn makes it almost a specialist’s track and you see plenty of runners struggling around it. But, if you’re on one that rails and is fleet of foot, that bend can be a good point to grab an advantage, by turning the taps on while others are having trouble. The finish is quite stiff, so you need to get home, but you would love to be on a front-runner that handles the ups and downs.
5.25: HOLBACHE (A Carroll) beaten favourite last time out. Trainer shows a profit of £21.75 with winning favourites (4/1 3rd)
6.00: FLASH BETTY (M Channon) beaten favourite last time out (5/1 4th)
6.35: LANIKA (G Brown) formerly with S Kirk (6/1 6th)
7.05: TYNWALD (R Hughes) course and distance winner last month. Owned by the Queen, next best bet on the card, now - PACAFI STATUS (4/5 WINNER)
7.40: BABINDI (W Haggas) beaten favourite last time out. Trainer has 25% strike rate with horses 10f+ and 23% with horses mid season (5/4 WINNER)
8.10: GINGER JAM (N Tinkler) longest traveller 217 miles (2/1 3rd)
8.40: BLUEBELL TIME (M Saunders) beaten favourite last time out (7/2 WINNER)
Please note the percentages in brackets for the Top 5 Trainers at Goodwood show their national averages over the past 5 years.
Comparing current form or course form against that of the national average is our preferred measuring tool, the maths suggests a factual position and not one of bias. Besides, the higher the national average, with respect to the other trainers, the greater chance of success. The higher the trainer's success rate, the more likely the horse is to win.
