Eyecatcher York Micro Angles

horse racing

Here are a couple of simple micro angles that will be worth noting at York this week. The first of which focuses on Dubawi and the recent record of his progeny at York. Using results at all meetings at York, not just the Ebor meeting, since the start of 2016, we can see that sire Dubawi’s progeny have an excellent win strike with the following criteria:

Sire: Dubawi
Track: York
Horses Age: 3 to 5
Race Distance: 1m 2 ½ f +

10 winners from 20 runners

50% Strike Rate

+19.68 Profit to SP

A/E 1.96

11 placed

55% Strike Rate

N.B. Dubawi progeny in races over 1m 2f.

The second York micro-angle is even simpler and looks at the record of trainer William Haggas in two-year-old races at the Ebor Festival. Since 2009 he has had

10 winners from 25 runners

40% Strike Rate

+36.12 Profit to SP

A/E 2.28

15 placed

68% Strike Rate

N.B. William Haggas Runners in Juvenile Races

Any qualifiers from the above micro angles and a couple more that I have will be available each day exclusively for EyeCatcher Pro Subscribers.

I have a MA in International Politics and having spent a number of years working in political campaigning but I eventually I realised that politics was not the world where I wanted to work I had been interested in horse racing since the late 1980s but in the early years I was merely just betting and watching racing like most people as a bit of fun and a hobby, then the hobby becomes a passion and that’s what happened to me with horse racing. I soon realised that to make money from my hobby I had to learn as much as I could about the sport and betting in general. The whole process took time but after a number of successful years of betting, I decided in 2011 to take the plunge, gave up my full time day job and decided to bet on horse racing as a part time business and I haven’t looked back since. I like to specialise in the better class of races and I love to solve the puzzles posed by big field handicaps the latter races often provide punters with great value betting opportunities. Whilst most of my time is spent reviewing previous races I like to keep things as simple as possible as even the biggest field handicaps can usually be pruned down to half a dozen strong contenders with the right sort of approach.
