Micro-Angles – November Profile Horse

horse racing

A new month and this weeks horse in profile is the Sue Gardner trained Sirop De Menthe.

The 7-year-old’s career record is –

5 wins from 28 runs

Strike Rate 18%

10 placed

Place Strike Rate 36%.

Three of those five wins have come in November – 3 wins from 4 runs, 4 placed with form figures of 2111. He is also 2 wins from 3 runs in handicap hurdles when racing 121 to 365 days since his last run so can go well first time up.

The gelding’s last win came off a mark of 128 and he starts this winter off a very winnable mark off a mark of 124. The stable’s runners are usually well backed when they fancy one so you would be advised to get an early price about him when he does run. All his wins have come in Class 3 or lower and his figures in Class 2 or higher are 0 wins from 4 runs 1 placed.

N.B. Sirop De Menthe in handicap hurdles at class 3 or lower.

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.
