A nice little 10/1 gamble landed for Taqdeer last weekend, am a big fan of using a trends elimination method in big handicaps. Friday's Esher Cup only has 8 runners but there is a clear trends selection in the Godolphin runner DREAM WARRIOR, after running through the GeeGeez trends.

DREAM WARRIOR 1pt e/w @ 7/1 (Friday Sandown 1:50)

Not only that but Charlie Appleby and Buick are bang in form right now and also have a good record at the track. Over the last 30 days Charlie Appleby runners are 12/24 which is an amazing 50% Strike-Rate, showing a +15pts profit and 1.63 A/E which means his runners are winning 63% more often than their odds suggest. Buick has a 27% S/R alone with his rides in the last 2 weeks. If that wasn't enough Dream Warrior's sire Dubawi is profitable to +50pts on flat turf with a 21% Win Strike-rate with his runners.

Keep an eye out for the trends rundown for Saturday's Gold Cup at Sandown, marking the end of the jumps season.
