As we move into autumn and the leaves start falling from the trees, thoughts gravitate to those hardy heroes of the jumping game.
The big guns will soon be stretching their legs, many of them with Festival targets six months down the track.
And, to celebrate the changing of the racing seasons, how about a brilliant, proven winner-getter?
TrainerTrackStats (TTS) has been the jump race fan’s punting bible since it was first published in 2006 for the 2006/7 jumps season.
Back then, David Pipe won more races than any other (134 – he was 32nd last term with just 33 winners from 361 runners); Willie Mullins trained 79 winners in Ireland, 23 behind Noel Meade (he trained 210 last campaign, Meade 57); and Gordon Elliott had no winners from 30 runners in his first full season training in Ireland… but he did saddle the Grand National winner in England!
Meanwhile, TTS rewarded its followers with £1,207 profit (£20 level stakes, BSP) in that inaugural run. Their initial investment? £57. The following year, the profit returned was £1,936 to the same staking. And so it’s gone on for more than a decade…
Fast forward to 2020 and, incredibly, TTS is available for no charge.
So what exactly is TrainerTrackStats?
Well, if you’ve not heard of it before – where have you been?! – it is, as the name suggests, a guide to the very best trainer/track combinations in Britain.
While most of the trainers have a negative profile overall, there are places they like to target with specific types of horse. Trainers, like all of us, are creatures of habit: what has worked for them in the past is what they look to replicate in the future.
The guy behind this, and the original creator of the format back in 2006, Matt Bisogno, has whittled over 800 candidate trainer/track combinations down to just 78. That small subset form the top table in this free report and are expected to provide an average of one to two bets a day throughout the season.
What are you waiting for?!
