Last week's haul of 36 winners has encouraged yours truly to offer the stats and facts for this week Monday through Sunday. Good luck with all your bets. Trainers saddled the following number of winners for the corresponding week in 2011 as follows: 9--Richard Hannon 6--Mark Johnston 5--Richard Fahey 5--David Nicholls 4--Clive Brittain 4--William Muir 4--Kevin Ryan 4--Roger Varian 3--Alan Bailey 3--Sir Henry Cecil 3--Tim Easterby 3--David Evans 3--John Gosden 3--William Haggas 3--William Jarvis 3--Alan McCabe 3--Ed McMahon In a week lacking NH meetings in general terms, next Sunday's fixtures (Uttoxeter & Plumpton) produced doubles for Sheena West (29/1) and David Pipe (19/1) twelve months ago.
Results from day one: 6 races--3 winning favourites----one (successful) odds on market leader Trainers of winning favourites: Sir Henry Cecil--Roger Charlton--Dermot Weld Trainers of beaten favourites: Roger Charlton--David Lanigan--Sir Michael Stoute Winning trainers and their runners on the Knavesmire today (Thursday): Sir Henry Cecil: Wild Coco (3.
General York comments for Wednesday: John Dunlop is finally getting his act together this season with his last eighteen runners securing three gold, four silver and four bronze medals.
2.10 Catterick: Four of the seven favourites have won this event to date, with market leaders coming to this year's gig on a four-timer. The biggest priced winner to date was returned at 6/1.
2.15 Ffos Las: KODATISH ran well enough at Windsor last night but this looks booked for CITY GIRL who did nothing wrong when finding only one too good for her on her Salisbury debut.
2.05 Ayr: MAJESTIC MOON is the first of Richard Fahey's five runners on the day, with the trainer having notched four winners on Saturday. Richard's Majestic Missile colt is attempting to become the third winner of this event in the last four year on behalf of the yard.
2.00 Newbury: Richard Hannon comes into the opening race on a four-timer. Richard held four options for the contest earlier in the week and the trainer has offered his beaten favourite RISING LEGEND a chance to atone for recent losses.
1.40 Newmarket: The last six winners have carried 9-1 or more and the trend could continue via the likes of SIR JOHN HAWKWOOD, ASATIR and COMPTON. Sir Michael Stoute was the lading trainer at this three day fixture last season and having scored with Fiorente on Thursday, SIR JOHN HAWKWOOD would be another welcome winner.
1.40 Newbury: AMBERLEY HEIGHTS has been denied an outings a few times to date but the money is (seemingly) down this time around whereby Richard Hannon's Elnadim raider can go in at the first time of asking.
1.20 Newmarket: Thirteen of the last fifteen winners of this opening contest have carried weights of 9-0 or less and the trio to home in on from this sector of the weight from my viewpoint are RIOT OF COLOUR, PERFECT STEP and CARDIGAN.
