The Weekend Bulletin (Sat 23rd Nov)
For the coming weekend we have two major horse races to savour one of which includes a matchup of the highest rated Chasers in the country at the moment, with Altior and Cyrname going head to head in the Grade 2 Christy 1965 Chase at Ascot.
Meanwhile up at Haydock Bristol De Mai is due to try and make it a hat-trick on the bounce in the Grade 1 Betfair Chase.
Both Ascot and Haydock have some quality supporting races and for the brand new Insiders Club Members Report, Issue 211, we have delved into the top trainer trends at both venues and the highlighted yards have some interesting runners between them.
The report also contains a nifty micro method that involves a particular type of runner from the current Champion NH trainer, Paul Nicholls. A simple angle but one that has proven to be profitable over the years!
The weekly Members Reports form an integral part of the comprehensive package available from the Betting Insiders Club. You can find out more including a special offer here.
Once the line-up for Saturday’s key handicap races at Ascot and Haydock are confirmed we will be filtering the profitable trainers highlighted in the Members Report and will have a selection or two from each track.

Sat 23rd Nov
Dr Richard Newland’s stats at Ascot read well in terms of P&L with 5 winners and a further 4 placed in recent years. He has a trio of runners at the track today and of those Coillte Eile (1.30pm) could be the one to go with.
Ex-Irish 6yo Mare who joined the Dr Newland’s yard in May’19 and has run 3 times since including a win at Aintree in mid-June. Came out 5 weeks later having been raised 6lb in the handicap and after never travelling or jumping with much conviction finished last of the 7 runners. Connections could offer no explanation post race for the mare’s performance. Hopefully she will be primed after 4 months off and at 8/1 EW (1/5, 3pl) looks the way to go.
Up at Haydock David Pipe has equally decent P&L stats and Know The Score (3.40pm) takes up this engagement in preference to the other race at Ascot that he was also entered for earlier in the week.
Just had the one run over fences when making a successful seasonal return, after wind surgery, in a Novices Handicap at Worcester towards the end of October. Prior to that run Pipe spoke to ATR about the coming season and noted with this fella that he had schooled nicely at home and they were hopeful of further improvement to the extent that he could end up being a Welsh National type. Stepping up in trip he will hopefully continue his progression. Gen 5/2.
Together We Can Win in 2019 and beyond
