August Trainers Year by Year


August Trainers Year By Year

Each month I write an article connected with monthly trainer trends.
I have stated on numerous occasions before, trainers tend to be creatures of habit
and hence tend to peak at certain times of the year.
Likewise they seem to under-perform at other times of the year.
This article is based on Flat trainers in the month of August with data taken from 2004 to 2009.
All profit/losses are quoted to £1 level stakes.


This article is going to be slightly different as I am giving you the strike rates for each
trainer in every August since 2004. Hence you can see the differences in strike rates each
year which helps to explain why trainer trends/systems can fluctuate so much.
I have also given the overall strike rate for each trainer for ALL months so that can be used for
comparison purposes.


Let us begin by looking at trainer records in all races.
The trainers with the highest overall strike rates are listed at the top:

 

August strike rates by year (OSR = overall trainer strike rate for all months ‘04-‘09)

With over 300 trainers in the table there is plenty of data to get your teeth into.
Hopefully though, the table will clearly demonstrate that even the best trainers find
it difficult to perform to the same level every August.
Take Saeed Bin Suroor – in 2006 he had an exceptional August with 4 out of every
10 runners winning (SR 40%); two years later though in 2008 this drop to 14.55%.
