Horse Racing is fickle, we all know this, and if a horse loses everyone blames the driver. But what if the driver is in form. Sam Twiston Davies recently had just 3 rides at Market Rasen and won all 3 with his final ride of the day coming home with an S.P. of 4/1 (5.0). The BSP for this race was 6.4 and had we B2L at 10 ticks the profit would have been over 18% of our stake. Another leading Jockey, Brian Hughes, had a win in the first 2 races at Sedgefield on the 24th March his next ride went off at 15.5 on the exchange and traded as low as 2.0 in running. A B2L trade of 10 ticks would have produced a 44% profit on our stake.
Jockeys with 2 or more wins at a single meeting are quite rare and logging each race winning jockey can be a laborious task especially when you are trading other events going on at the same time
The Automation Guru, Dallas, at Bet Angel has come up with a nifty little bit of automation that will “After each race when Betfair closes and settles the market it will store the name of the Jockey on the winning horse, if the same jockey rides two winners a it will trigger a pop up alert displaying the name of the Jockey”
As an aide to this I have started to produce an excel workbook which will show, at the click of a tab, the form of the jockey from his/her last 50 rides.
While it is limited at the moment to the following jockeys, you can download it for free below
Sam Twiston Davies
Nico de Boinville
and Charlie Deutsch
This file needs to be refreshed in the usual way
I will be adding more jockeys as time goes on
The next piece of research comes from the In-Running Trading Tool
From this I can see at a glance the jockeys next ride of the day and determine as to a back to lay trade is on the cards.
I will post any 2 time winners and further results form todays racing Later.
