Monday 30 August 2021

    • COURSE: Left handed, undulating. An oval-shaped track, about two miles in extent, with a run-in of five furlongs. While not an out-and-out galloping course, owing to the pronounced undulations, the track puts the emphasis on stamina almost regardless of ground. All races up to a mile are run on the straight course.
    • FAVOURITES IN NON-HANDICAPS: Best performing category albeit from a smaller sample are 3yo winning favourites in non-handicaps which show 26 winners from 50 runners for a big 52% strike rate and a level stake profit to SP of +1.37. 
    • FAVOURITES IN HANDICAPS: Winning favourites in handicaps fare far better than the national average. Winning favourites in both categories over the past 5 years show 174-485 for 36% (-19.69).
    • TRAINERS: Strange that top trainer at the course David Evans only has one runner. Hot trainer Rod Millman has 2 runners so all three are worth a look.
    • SEAN WOODS: Back from racing in Hong Kong, Woods two entries catch the eye, this is his first runners at Chepstow. Woods has a string of around 30 juveniles bought with the purpose of restoring the trainer to the heights he achieved during a 10-year stint in Britain when he saddled over 250 winners including Group 1 success. He is currently 8-61 for 13%. After a massive renovation he is racing out of Jeremy Noseda's old stable.
    • JOCKEYS: Hot jockey David Probert has six rides at the track. For winners Chepstow is his number one track showing 25-197 for 13% so 2% above his national average. Hollie Doyle has 4 rides and 9-59 for 15%, she has a national average of 14%. One imagines a couple of winners coming from those 10 rides?


NEXT SECOND (R Charlton) trainer 24% at course, jockey Thomas Greatrex 37% on winning favourites and won this race last year

SWISSAL ( J G O'Shea) trainer has won last 2 runnings

FOXY FEMME (J Gallagher) trainer shows profit of £76.69 when one runner at meeting

BOLLY BULLET (J G O'Shea) beaten favourite last time out. Ridden by Hollie Doyle


Chepstow takes a fair bit of getting. Because it’s so up hill and down dale, stamina has to come into play and it’s also worth noting that the straight is quite long, meaning that some horses start to race a lot earlier than is ideal. If you’re on one that wants to make the running, for example, you’ll often get a few keen to take you on earlier than you might like, so patience is vital for a jockey. Long-striding horses can often go well on the straight track but, as it’s quite stiff, they definitely need to get home
