    Frequent Flyer Miles – Can You Trust Trainers and Jockeys with Vast Experience at a Particular Course?

    Experienced horse racing punters know better than to take strike rates at face value.

    The Becher Chase, a 3m 2f handicap Chase race, takes place this weekend at Aintree. It was only established in 1992, but since then, it has become something of a ‘training ground’ for future Grand National winners. Why?
