Mark Johnston’s runners can be fairly easy to gauge just watching the market. If the early prices in the morning were chalked up and his first time out three year old showed at around five to one or less and attracted good market support in the last thirty minutes before the off, you know your horse will be running well. On the other hand, if the price is five to one or bigger and started drifting before the race, you almost know with certainty that it would not be winning on this day.
The lesson, learn to watch for these patterns and 해외축구중계 make notes every month, every year if need be. Some trainers and stables really do know whether they have a great chance on the day in these types of races. Be careful to go through the form, you will often find if you study enough that stable A in a race actually beat one of the runners from stable B in this race with another horse! Form line, they know how their two selections fair at home and that in this case they have got the other horse beat.
Learn to know which stables judge this well and watch out for relative market support. Do not follow the market support two quickly though, quite often the support in the last five minutes is more relevant than any as the real liability is shown to all!
Another note to take for this type of race is the relevance of any jockey booking. Sometimes you will see Ryan Moore or Jamie Spencer riding for a stable that they rarely do in a really competitive looking Maiden when they could be riding for a stable that might be more familiar! Take note and check the statistics, these statistics are readily available and will help point the way.
If you really study the relation between the prices on the day at each bookmakers, and the stables the horses represent. You will begin to learn that some bookmakers are more ‘connected’ with certain stables than others. The best example of this is the quality of information Ladbrokes seem to have over the other bookmakers regarding the runners from the Ballydoyle stable (A.P O’Brian) and also other Irish runners! If Ladbrokes go shortest alone on any A.P selection you are assured of a good run. Learn to read these correlations between bookmakers prices and certain stables.
