Trainers’ record since 1997 in Betvictor

Here are the stats by trainer for Saturday’s Betvictor Gold Cup. Note that, in the place column, a win also counts as a place. Bets equals number of runners. Far right column shows how many runnings of the race those runners are spread over. P/L is profit/loss at SP where you’ll see that Martin Pipe and Nigel TD are the only ones showing a profit.

This offers a deeper look at bare stats. For example, on the face of it, Philip Hobbs has a poor record with not one winner to show for 17 runners. But a glance at the place column shows that 8 have reached the frame; he’s far from a poor judge of what it takes to go close here.

At the foot is a summary of the winners since 1997 and I’m grateful to my friend Chris Bagnall founder of Horseracebase for all the stats you see here.
