Micro-Angle – Jockey Stats

horse racing

Following on from previous posts, I have got some more jumps micro angle’s for the winter months and also two horses that go well in the autumn.

Something a bit different this week, we all know about C&D horses but not as much attention is paid to jockeys and their C&D preferences. Here are two jockeys who seem to excel at a certain track and distance.

Aiden Coleman at Market Rasen

Aiden Coleman seems to ride Market Rasen well and since 2014 he has had 28 winners from 141 rides

Strike Rate 20%

SP Profit -4.25

A/E 0.92

57 placed

Place Strike Rate 40%.

However, if you just look at his rides over 2m 5f to 2m 5 ½ f he has had

10 winners from 25 rides

Strike Rate 40%

SP Profit +22.23

A/E 2.11 (profit to Betfair SP +27.14)

14 placed

Place Strike Rate 57%.

Thus 38% of his wins at Market Rasen having come over this distance.

Trainer: Aiden Coleman
Track: Market Rasen
Distance: 2m 5f to 2m 5 ½ f

Barry Geraghty at Kempton

I am not sure there is a better jockey around Kempton than Barry Geraghty and his record bears that out. Since 2014 he has had –

25 winners from 91 rides

Strike Rate 27%

SP Profit +6.53

A/E 1.01

45 placed

Place Strike Rate 49%.

His record over around 2m is exceptional, particularly if you just look at his rides in hurdle and NHF races, as he has had

18 winners from 33 rides

Strike Rate 55%

SP Profit +20.78

A/E 1.52

26 placed

Place Strike Rate 79%.

Since he took over as retained jockey for JP McManus he hasn’t had as many rides at the track but he has still managed –

5 wins from 8 rides

Strike Rate 63%

SP Profit +4.32

7 placed

Place Strike Rate 88%

– since he took up that role. Not many bets but when you see Barry Geraghty booked to ride over 2m, then fill your boots!

John Burke

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.
