Horse Racing Trainers To Follow In August

Horse Racing Trainers To Follow In August

August Trainers

A disappointing July but we still stand at +£79.86 for the year which is really good.  We have had to do a bit of homework this month with just 3 winning trainers from last August.  We have 11 trainers in total, 6 on the turf, 2 NH and 3 AW, nothing in Ireland I'm afraid.

 

FLAT TURF GB

 

PAUL MIDGLEY (4YO+)

North Yorkshire trainer who specializes in sprinters.  He gave us a small profit last year and in 2019 he gave us +£22.00 LSP

  • 2016     1/24      4%     (£19.50)
  • 2017     9/40     23%   +£52.00
  • 2018    10/46    22%   +£ 7.60
  • 2019     7/44     16%    +£15.58
  • 2020     6/35     17%     (£  4.05)

Our Early Price figures showed a profit of +£0.75 last year, remember just his older horses, he's not nearly as profitable with his youngsters.

 

WILLIE MUIR & CHRIS GRASSICK (ALL)

Lambourn trainer who returns for a 6th year to the August blog but now has a joint trainer in tow.

  • 2013 9/33 27% +£40.25
  • 2014 7/34 21% +£17.00
  • 2015 7/36 19% (£ 4.25)
  • 2016 5/30 17% (£ 5.95)
  • 2017 4/38 11% (£5.50)
  • 2018 5/25 20% (£1.30)
  • 2019 5/26 19% +£11.75
  • 2020 4/18 22% +£20.50

The star of the blog last August, we managed +£27.80 using early prices.  We also made a profit with him in 2018 and 2019, get on his horses early because they are often gambled.

 

DAVID MENUISIER (ALL)

Sussex trainer back for a fourth year after being the star of the show in 2019 and giving +£6.00 last year.

  • 2014 1/3 33% +£0.75
  • 2015 1/5 20% +£4.00
  • 2016 3/14 21% +£11.00
  • 2017 3/14 21% +£29.50
  • 2018 2/13 15% (£1.25)
  • 2019 4/17 24% +£24.50
  • 2020 3/14 21%  +£ 0.30

Early price gains again last year and comes into the month on the back of a Goodwood winner, he may have crack filly Wonderful Tonight out this month which is something to look forward to.

 

KEVIN RYAN (ALL)

North Yorkshire trainer who will target the Ebor festival this month.

  • 2017     20/107     19%     +£ 7.01
  • 2018     10/83       12%     (£31.75)
  • 2019     16/71       23%    +£37.32
  • 2020     10/71       14%    +£36.71

Ideally we would like a slightly better strike rate but Early Price gains likely with double figure winners, he's had a poor July but a winner at 16's this afternoon at Goodwood might just get the ball rolling.

 

HUGO PALMER (ALL)

Newmarket trainer and blog regular, comes into the month in flying form with 4 winners from his last 6 runners.

  • 2018     8/54     15%     +£ 3.09
  • 2019     9/36     25%     +£35.17
  • 2020     3/19     16%     +£ 3.72

Decent enough figures and was probably down on his runners last August due to the Covid restrictions, I expect 30+ this month.

 

 

GB NH

 

NEIL MULHOLLAND (ALL)

Wiltshire trainer who usually appears at least once each season.

  • 2016     6/30     20%     +£ 2.31
  • 2017     7/30     23%     (£ 0.70)
  • 2018     5/29     17%      (£ 6.38)
  • 2019     2/15       8%     +£13.00
  • 2020     7/42      17%    +£18.33

Good in terms of LSP, we could do with a slight improvement in strike rate but with almost certain profits in 2017 using early prices it's more than likely he'll show a profit again this year.

 

GARY MOORE (HURDLERS)

Sussex trainer of the likes of Goshen and Sire De Grugy and breeder of the likes of Ryan, Jamie and Josh.

  • 2018     3/6     50%     +£ 8.50
  • 2019     1/3     33%     +£ 0.50
  • 2020     5/9     56%     +£14.22

Won't keep us too busy but those figures are hard to ignore, remember just his hurdlers.

 

GB AW

 

ROGER VARIAN (3yo's)

Newmarket trainer who I have had the pleasure of meeting and viewing his stables when my friend looked after Postponed.

  • 2018     3/11     27%     (£4.01)
  • 2019     6/17     35%    +£7.65
  • 2020     4/13     31%    +£1.00

A fantastic strike rate and while the LSP doesn't quite match if we can pinch some early price gains he should prove a useful addition.

 

ARCHIE WATSON (2yo's)

Relatively new Lambourne trainer who hasn't been quite as prominent as when he burst on the scene,  Dragon Symbol and Glen Shiel would be the current stable stars.

  • 2017     3/4     75%     +£4.11
  • 2018     4/12   33%      (£0.58)
  • 2019     7/26   27%     +£0.38
  • 2020     2/4     50%     +£4.60

The figures speak for themselves, almost certain profit with little risk involved.

 

MARCO BOTTI (2yo's)

Back from last month where he provided us a AW profit with his 3yo's.

  • 2017     1/1     100%     +£ 5.50
  • 2018     3/13     23%     +£25.43
  • 2019     1/7       14%      (£ 4.63)
  • 2020     2/5       40%     +£16.38

A blip in 2019 but back with a bang last year.

 

 

We look to have a decent bunch to go to war with, I'm particularly excited about the AW trainers who have some solid figures.

 

As always please leave any questions, comments or observations below, good luck!
