I present a lot of articles based on the current form of trainers the highlight being one week two trainers to follow produced twenty five winners. William Haggas and The ‘Good’ Dr Newland were they. This week I have three more trainers worthy of our consideration. Sir Mark Prescott, Donald McCain and John Quinn. They have differing ways of doing their work but all three are looking in good form so let’s take note.
Sir Mark Prescott currently as I write is achieving a 25 per cent strike rate. He recently sent Dutch Monarch to Wolverhampton where a visit to the winners enclosure occurred so I think this horse should follow up. Sir Mark has been for many years rather patient and giving his horses time to mature and he produces decent stoutly bred animals to win and many of them set up sequences. Matchmaking for the yard didn’t run very well on Saturday but could put that behind him at Ffos Las this week.
Donald McCain has his string much further forwards than he usually has
at this time of year. Donald always seems to have winners at Bangor, Hexham, Cartmel and Sedgefield so always study his animals carefully at these four tracks. He sometimes has Flat runners some for his daughter Abbie to ride in amateur races. In the coming days the yard has entries for The Cliff Horse on the level and he should go well. Over the sticks Good Tradition, Ofcourseiwill and Stay In Touch could all run well at bigger prices. So keep a look on Donald’s entries and runners.
John Quinn won the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot with Signora Cabello and the same filly also won the Prix Robert Papin over in France. The yard are going nicely at the moment. John has lots of entries this week and I has picked just a few for you to consider from this yard. Soie d’Leau would have a good chance if returning to the form shown in May and perhaps the ground could come up ‘soft’ where best form has been shown by the horse. Speed Company and Balance of Power are two horses who again could go in if they run to the levels previously shown. So yet another man to watch for.
High Roller hasn’t done well this week at all ‘ lady luck’ turning her back on us BUT in July our strike rate was almost 65 per cent. You don’t get that strike rate by being lucky… perhaps now is the time to join because this lull in form won’t last for long. Free to join, one tip maximum per day and you pay only £10 for a horse after it has won.
