Racing stats and pointers - 1 October
Horse racing on Saturdays always provides top-class racing but it is also the busiest day of the week for sport. So to help with the work, please find below our key stats and pointers for the day’s racing:
If you had backed Johnny Murtagh with £10 when riding for William Haggas this year you would have made £215. He has three rides for Haggas today: Al Wajba (Newmarket 13:50), Aniseed (Newmarket 14:25), Leitrim King (Newmarket 16:10).
Perfect Tribute (Ascot 15:15) broke the track record when winning in April this year when he last ran at Ascot. He has run here twice before and finished 1st and 3rd.
Rainfall in the Ascot 17:00 has won both his starts at Ascot, the only horse in the race to have won there.
It pays to follow the front of the market. The favourite has won the Ascot 14:40 seven times from the last ten years, with the biggest priced winner being 7/2.
