Racing stats and pointers - 15 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:
£568 is the profit you would have made by betting £10 on all of William Haggas’s runners at Ascot in the last five years.

The last of those (Kalk Bay) is ridden by Adam Beschizza who shows a £130 profit for Haggis to £10 stakes and it is his only ride on Saturday.
