Look­ing at train­ers with the knack of win­ning Nurs­eries

Ed­die Wood links his win­ning sires with the train­ers who get the best out of their young prog­eny

Racing Ahead - - CONTENTS -

Last month, I promised to give you the foal­ing dates of the eight sires’ prog­eny I se­lected in last month’s is­sue of

Rac­ing Ahead. I was go­ing to give you some more de­tails about their sires them­selves.

But hav­ing given this some thought, I be­lieve it would be bet­ter to give you a few train­ers who seem to tar­get par­tic­u­lar cour­ses in Nurs­ery Hand­i­caps.

If these train­ers are linked with any of the sires I have given, then se­ri­ously con­sider back­ing them. Also con­sider any trainer not on the list I am giv­ing you who has one of the eight sires I have listed. It may be help­ful for me to list the sires again and give you their dis­tance range in case you have not got last month’s is­sue of Rac­ing Ahead to hand.

Ac­cla­ma­tion (6.9f) pro­duces pre­co­cious, fast-run­ning two-year-olds and his stock gen­er­ally prefers good or good to firm ground.

Dubawi’s (IRE) (9.6f) prog­eny will win at most dis­tances in Nurs­ery Hand­i­caps and will act on all types of ground but good to good to firm ground ap­pears to suit them best.

Galileo (IRE) (11.2f) is a great sire of two-year-olds and his prog­eny can win through the full range of Nurs­ery dis­tances, but they will per­form bet­ter at seven to ten fur­longs. Galileo’s prog­eny will act are all types of go­ing.

Two-year-year-olds sired by In­vin­ci­ble Spirit (IRE) (7.4f) have an ex­cel­lent record and while In­vin­ci­ble Spirit’s prog­eny per­form well within the nor­mal Nurs­ery dis­tance range, they are likely to win more races up to seven fur­longs. Although the prog­eny of this sire act on all sur­faces, they ap­pear to give their best per­for­mances on good to firm ground.

Ko­diac (7.2f) is a great source of early two-year-olds. His prog­eny win at all dis­tances but show a pref­er­ence for races run up to seven fur­longs and good to firm ground.

The prog­eny of New Ap­proach (IRE) (10f) can win at the full range of dis- tances, but seven to nine fur­longs will give you most wins on good to soft or good to firm ground.

The off­spring of the late Scat Daddy (USA) (7.5f) are best suited to a trip of five to nine fur­longs over good to soft to good to firm go­ing.

Te­ofilo’s (IRE) (10.5f) prog­eny will cope with the full range of Nurs­ery dis­tances. The best re­sults come from seven fur­longs plus and are best on good to good to firm sur­faces, although they will han­dle all types of go­ing.

Now, I will sup­ply a list of train­ers that ap­pear to tar­get cer­tain Nurs­eries at par­tic­u­lar cour­ses. They all have a strike-rate of at least 25 per cent: An­drew Balding (Good­wood,) Mick Chan­non (Mus­sel­burgh and Sandown,) Ed Dun­lop (New­mar­ket (Row­ley course and Yar­mouth,) Chris Dwyer (Yar­mouth,) David Evans (Red­car,) Richard Han­non (Ascot and Ep­som,) Mark John­ston (Bev­er­ley, Good­wood, Hamil­ton, Pon­te­fract, York,) Sir Mark Prescott (South­well.)

Nurs­ery Hand­i­caps are of­ten dif­fi­cult to win, but what I have given you should en­able you to par­tic­i­pate in them and make a profit. You may have time to re­search other sires in re­la­tion to hand­i­caps. This will help you to de­ter­mine their Stamina In­dex and the range that they can win these races.
