FAVOURITES: Winning favourites at Ascot over the past 5 years show 185-541 for 34.20% yielding a level stake profit of +£19.26. The sample size is robust but contrary at the same time. For winning favourites in handicaps to virtually out-perform those in non-handicaps is unique on UK Racecourses.

The template reminds us to be wary of backing 2yo favourites in non-handicaps returning a paltry 26% strike rate, whilst winning 3yo favourites return 82-209 for 39.23% for a profit of +37.17 in both categories. Those figures are partly due to the good returns of those 3yo from the current year: 9-16 for 64% (+9.63) in non-handicaps, and11-24 for 46% (+7.53) in handicaps, totalling 20-40 for 50% (+17.16).

TRAINERS: Our +/-% figures prove how hard it is for trainers and jockeys to have winners at this course. Not one of our esteemed top 5 trainers produce a level stake profit at the track and each of them are way down compared to their national average!

Just a reminder about the Gosden figures. John Gosden has scored 34-173 for 20% (-26.48) whilst the new team J & T Gosden score 15-104 for 14% (+10.88) over the past 5 years. Likewise, Roger Charlton shows 8-48 for 17% (-15.13) whilst H & R Charlton score 2-11 for 18% (+8.33).

JOCKEYS: Hot jockey Ryan Moore (18%) could be the man to follow given his 5 rides, but cold list jockey Tom Marquand (14%) has a full book of 7 rides. One imagines winners from this duo.

OWNERS: Only Godolphin (24%) from our leader board has runners for tomorrow and they have 3 in: CITY OF KINGS 2.35, COLOUR IMAGE 3.45 & DUBAI MIRAGE 4.20

Because the run-in on Ascot’s round course is relatively short, positioning – jockeyship in other words – is key. It goes without saying that in steadily-run races you want to be towards the sharp end but, whatever the pace, you can get into trouble trying to come through rivals late on. We’re still learning about the straight course, following the relaying a few years back, but in my view it’s more pace-dependent than draw-dependent. Given the right pace to chase, I reckon you can win from anywhere – Jason Weaver
