Horse Racing Trainers To Follow In February

Horse Racing Trainers To Follow In February

February Trainers

A fantastic start to the year as we carry +£123.40 LSP into February.  February is usually a quiet month for the blog and that's the case again with just 3 NH trainers and 4 AW stables to focus on and all bar one are back from last year.  The AW part of the blog kept us afloat last February, we need the NH trainers to come to the party so we can build those profits for a usually hectic March.

 

NH

We'll start with the only trainer that wasn't in the blog last February.

 

PAUL NICHOLLS (ALL)

Ditcheat trainer, currently leading the trainers championship.  

  • 2016     21/66     32%     +£12.71
  • 2017     17/75     23%      (£23.06)
  • 2018     19/76     25%      (£10.00)
  • 2019     25/89     28%     +£21.54
  • 2020     31/103   30%     +£21.24

Lots to like about the strike rate and with Cheltenham not as much a target for many of his horses he's made hay in February in the past two years.  Every chance we would have made a profit from 19 winners in 2018 with the use of Early prices and BOG. 

The Champion Trainer

If you had a raft of horses you feel would not be suitable for Cheltenham in March or Aintree in April you may target them at easier February race meetings?

LUCY WADHAM (ALL)

Newmarket trainer who gave us a tiny loss last February.

  • 2017     2/10     20%    +£6.00
  • 2018     5/20     25%    +£1.53
  • 2019     3/11     27%    +£17.25
  • 2020     3/16     19%      (£3.13)

Really solid stuff with a 20% strike rate over the period, I think it makes sense to give her another chance especially as she comes into the month with three winners from her last six runners (18's 7's and 6/4)

 

MICHAEL SCUDAMORE (ALL)

Hertfordshire trainer who is back again after providing a small profit with his chasers, we're going with all his runners this year as we missed a couple of nice ones last time around.

  • 2017     2/15     13%     +£17.00
  • 2018     2/17     12%     +£ 3.00
  • 2019     3/15     20%     +£ 5.25
  • 2020     4/13     31%     +£27.75

Decent figures, especially the past two years and with not so many runners little risk involved.

 

 

AW TRAINERS

These 4 made around +£20 LSP between them last year, lets hope they can do the same again.

All Weather Stars

Some very impressive strike rates from my All-Weather trainers in February.

MARK JOHNSTON (ALL)

Back from last year and last month where he made us loads with his older horses, all his runners this month.

  • 2017     8/47     17%     (£13.60)
  • 2018     7/32     22%    +£ 4.88
  • 2019    11/33    33%    +£22.53
  • 2020    10/43    23%     +£10.53

Really strong figures and has started the year really well, long may it continue. 

 

JAMES TATE (ALL)

Newmarket trainer who seems to be improving every year, has some nice February stats.

  • 2016     6/20     30%     (£4.77)
  • 2017     3/8       38%    +£2.23
  • 2018     2/12     17%     (£3.00)
  • 2019     6/13     46%    +£5.64
  • 2020     2/8       25%     (£ 0.20)

Great strike rate and our own figures were +£1.50 last year.  He's shown a LSP in each of the last three months.

 

JAMES FANSHAWE (4yo+)

Another Newmarket trainer who is no stranger to the blog, performs well with his older horses at this time of year.

  • 2016     1/2     50%     +£0.25
  • 2017     No Runners
  • 2018     2/5     40%     +£1.00
  • 2019     3/8     38%     +£4.00
  • 2020     2/9     22%     +£0.25

Our own figures showed +£3.50 LSP and while he won't have loads of runners he should add to the profits.

 

ED WALKER (ALL)

The star of the show last year with +£7.00 LSP, our faith was rewarded after he had blanked for us in 2019.

  • 2015     2/3     67%     +£3.25
  • 2016     1/2     50%     +£5.00
  • 2017     6/15   40%     +£10.00
  • 2018     5/17   29%     +£4.75
  • 2019     0/11     0%     (£11.00)
  • 2020     5/17   29%      +£3.25

We doubled the SP returns using Early prices.  Lets hope he can fire in a 25%+ strike rate again this year.

 

Although it looks a quiet month in terms of the number of trainers, Nicholls and Johnston could have 150+ runners between them.  We had 206 runners last month and the results were fantastic so hopefully our selectivity will be rewarded again.

A couple that almost made it were F O'Brien with all his runners and Derek Shaw and his 4yo+ horses, some years I would have thrown them in but it might be worth keeping an eye on them with a view to next year.

 

As always please leave comments, questions and observations below, it really helps.
