April Trainer 2014


 

April Trainers (Flat) by David Renham

This month I am looking at trainer performance in April on the flat. Trainers tend to be creatures of habit and tend to peak / trough at similar times each year. This article is based on UK and Irish Flat trainers in the month of April with data taken from 2009 to 2013.

April is the first full month for flat racing so some trainers can gain an edge over their rivals if they can get their ‘string’ fit and primed early on.

Firstly let us look at all races during this month.

All races (April 09-13) – 50 runs+

Trainers have been put in alphabetical order.

James Fanshawe does not send out many runners in April but they seem primed and ready. He has shown a profit in 4 of the last 5 Aprils. He has performed solidly in both handicaps and non handicaps and all ages have run well. He did have a poor 2013, but generally looks a trainer to stay on the right side of.

  

David Barron has a very good overall record and when Philip Makin is on board one should take note – this combination has combined for 13 winners from 35 for a profit of £45.13 (ROI +128.9%).

 

As I have said many times in the past, with any general stats such as these though, it often best to split into more specific race-types. Hence, let us look at 2yo maiden races in April since 2009. I have included all trainers with at least 10 runners:

This table should be quite useful for those of you who bet in 2yo maidens. The data is limited for many trainers and it may be worth digging a bit deeper, either by looking at win and placed performances and/or going back an extra year or two.

 

Finally a look at 3yo only handicaps: 25 runs minimum
