Trends

Key Trends

  1. 10 of the last 10 winners won last time out.
    These horses filled 90% of the total places from 72% of the total field.
  2. 8 of the last 10 winners had not finished outside the top 2 in any of their last 3 starts.
    These horses filled 73% of the total places from 63% of the total field.
  3. 10 of the last 10 winners had won at least 50% of their starts that season.
    These horses filled 83% of the total places from 73% of the total field.
  4. 9 of the last 10 winners were carrying no more than 1lb more than they did on their previous start.
    These horses filled 87% of the total places from 72% of the total field.
  5. 6 of the last 10 winners were trained in Ireland.
    These horses filled 63% of the total places from 44% of the total field. A lot of this success is down to Willie Mullins, who has trained 3 of the last 10 winners – his horses have filled 23% of the total places from 18% of the total field.

Other Trends

  1. 9 of the last 10 winners were aged 5 or 6.
    However, these horses didn’t necessarily over-perform (90% of the places from 89% of the total field), nor is there an edge to be gained by focusing on 5yo’s (5 of the last 10 winners, 70% of the total places from 64% of the total field) or 6yo’s (4 of the last 10 winners, 20% of the total places from 25% of the total field).
  2. 9 of the last 10 winners had been off the track for at least 32 days.
    These horses filled 73% of the total places (including 90% of the total winners) from 70% of the total field.
  3. 4 of the last 10 winners were unbeaten in bumpers.
    These horses performed better than would have been expected of them, filling 50% of the total places from 40% of the total field.
