Bit of a disappointment again (following Face the Problem!) Was confident both would have won.
Will now have to pin hopes on my 'saver' on CWF (but only 25k).
Its all good fun!

Does anyone have the 10 year trends for this race, particularly the minimum number of runs a horse has won this race with. These huge field handicaps where there is an emphasis on stamina usually require the experience to go with it. This is why I was against Haggas's horse in the Cambridgeshire.

Unoriginal but im looking at Olympiad, but he's had just the 6 run, but on the positive side is a 4yo so should be fully mature.

The Betfred Cesarewitch takes place at Newmarket on Saturday 13th October and as always will be a wide open affair with around 30 runners going to post. It makes up the second part of the Autumn Double with the Cambridgeshire, which was won by Bronze Angel two weeks ago.

Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years:

Age (Win-Place-Runners)
3yo: 1-1-17
4yo: 2-9-107
5yo: 1-8-82
6yo: 3-8-54
7yo: 1-2-38
8yo+: 2-2-35
Horses aged 6+ hold an advantage with a combined record of 6-12-127 compared to horses aged 3 to 5 (4-18-206).
4 of the 6 winners aged 6+ had run over hurdles that year.

Horses carrying 9-7 or more: 1-1-19
Horses carrying 9-0 to 9-6: 3-5-66
Horses carrying 8-7 to 8-13: 2-12-91
Horses carrying 8-0 to 8-6: 3-6-78
Horses carrying 7-7 to 7-13: 1-4-70
Horses carrying 7-6 or less: 0-2-9
No strong trend to be gleaned from the weights of the winners.
Top Weight: 00000005904 (0-1-11)
Horses carrying a penalty (1-5-45) don’t have a great record with just 6 of 45 runners making the frame, though they did fill the 1st & 3rd in 2011.

Official Ratings
Horses rated 76 to 86: 2-13-137
Horses rated 87 to 98: 7-14-166
Horses rated 99 to 109: 1-3-30
7 of 10 winners (including last 6) were officially rated 87 to 98. That ratings bracket has also accounted for 16 of the 20 places in past 5 runnings.

Recent/Past Form
9 of 10 winners (last 8) finished in the first 4 on their last flat start
7 of 10 winners posted their highest flat RPR on last flat start
9 of 10 winners ran at class 3 or higher last time out
9 of 10 winners had run at least 4 times that year (flat or hurdles)
8 of 10 winners had run in 12 or fewer handicaps
9 of 10 winners had won no more than 3 handicaps
10 of 10 winners had won a race over 2M+ (flat or hurdles)
7 of 10 winners had run at listed or group level

Mark Johnston (1-1-17), David Simcock (1-0-1) and Brian Meehan (1-0-2) have all trained the winner once since 2002.
Tim Fitzgerald (0-2-3) saddled Inchnadamph to finish 3rd-2nd-5th in 3 consecutive years, while Dermot Weld (0-2-4) trained Direct Bearing to be placed twice in the race and David Pipe (0-2-8) has also saddled 2 placed finishers in past 10 runnings.
Trainers who were predominantly focused on NH have won 6 of the last 12 runnings since 2000 (Martin Pipe X 2, Nicky Henderson X 2, Tony Martin and Philip Hobbs).
Irish-trained runners (1-4-16) have made the frame with 5 of 16 runners.

Horses drawn 13 to 24: 2-11-120
Horses drawn 25 or higher: 1-7-93
Surprisingly for a race run over 2M 2F, there is a large big draw bias towards horses drawn low with 7 of the last 10 winners begin drawn 1 to 12.
Horses drawn 1 to 5: 4-6-50. The bottom 5 stalls have produced 4 of last 10 winners and taken a quarter of the places from just over 15% of the total runners.

8 of 10 winners were priced 16/1 or below
Caracciola was a shock 50/1 winner in 2008 and Never Can Tell at 25/1 last year have been the 2 big upsets with the other 8 winners since 2002 all going off 16/1 or below.
Favourites (2-4-12) have won 2 of the last 10 and giving a level stakes profit of 1.00.

Racing Style
8 of 10 winners were held up or settled in mid division
This is clearly not an easy race to be up with the pace early and stay there with only 2 winners racing prominently, including last year’s winner, Never Can Tell, who made all.

Based on trends from the past 10 years you are looking for a horse:
Non-hurdler aged 3 to 5 or hurdles runner aged 6+
Officially rated 87 to 98
Finished in the first 4 last time in a class 3 or higher
Posted highest RPR last time out
Run in 12 or fewer flat handicaps (winning no more than 3)
Won over at least 2 miles
Won over hurdles (and ran at this year’s Cheltenham Festival)
Previously contested a group or listed race
Previously won a class 2 or 3 handicap
Ran in this season’s Northumberland Plate
First 5 in Ascot Stakes, Shergar Cup Stayers or John Guest Brown Jack H’cap
Placed in Doncaster Cup or Gordon Carter H’cap last time
Drawn 1 to 12 (ideally in 1 to 5)
Tends to be held up or settled in midfield
Trained by Nicky Henderson

Thanks BJG

sint as far as Olympiad is concerned, if you are worried about experience surely the fact that he has only run 6 times coming the end of his 4yo season, it would indicate that he has either been injury prone or is immature. I'd be surprised if a horse with so few runs had won but that wouldn't stop me backing him if I thought he was the right horse.

A bigger concern for Olympiad would be the draw stat imo if you follow them.

For him, I think his chance depends on how much rain they get
Report sintonian October 11, 2012 4:02 PM BST
He is by Galileo and has won on Soft. The going does not concern me THAT much but agree the draw could be the killer. 33 is nearly as bad as Orfevre.

He must be lightly raced due to having some injuries, minor ones though.

Dermot Weld's usually run well in this, has won it before and saddled the 5th last year, who has not ran since fwiw, Rainforest Magic.

All in all, lack of exp and bad draw, I think i'll wait until Saturday as the books may try and get him. He has drifted to 14/1 already. I'll see whats on offer on Saturday.

Just had a look at BTB. I can see the appeal with his handicap mark, and he should be gaining fitness with each run. Being 6yo the more runs he has the better, and his best run of the season was his last one. He appears to like quick ground though, all his wins have been on G or better, but at 33/1 he looks a decent outsider. gl.

I'm rarely a favourite backer but I really fancy Countrywide Flame for this. Great draw, will stay, will go on the ground, top class form over hurdles including 4 wins/places in Grade 1 hurdles, had a good recent flat run, carrying a featherweight, could be almost 20 lbs well in based on his hurdles rating.

He might blow this race apart and at the prices I'm more than happy to find out.

Old boy Sentry Duty must have at least a sporting chance. 6th last year off 97, 6th the year before off 102 when 14/1 and 8/1 respectively. The h'capper has at last, for a 10yr old, given him some respite and 87 is just the right sort of mark. An astonishing 35lb swing with Aim To Prosper for a 4L beating two years ago shows how well this is h'cpd imvho. Mr Henderson knows how to get him just right for this race and 70/1 on here is an insult.

ROOBUCK, don't call me your DARLING, I am nothing of the sort,the FACT that the first three were drawn in single figures, does not matter one jot to me and although I read FALLONS column in the WEEKENDER, I chose to ignore the tip on the grounds of the rise in weights from his first win, 25 lbs, but FALLON rode a splendid race and HE deserved the win,
SPENSER is however inflexible in his rides, several years ago he rode a horse for AIDEN O'BRIENS sister named SAOIRSE in our 1,000 guineas, now that is a straight mile, he met trouble in running 3 times, I sent an e-mail pointing out the fact and she replaced SPENSER with KINANE and won the IRISH 1.000 guineas.
2 and a quarter miles on ANY course gives a proper jockey, plenty of time and space to JOCKEY himself/herself into a challenging position.

Sintonian, you must realise that most training gallops consist of three horses, sometimes more , but not often, it IS the jockey who decides the kind of ride DURING the race,
they come back in after a win and some say that the horse likes to run between horses, but surely that is the jockeys preference NOT the horses, HUGHES says in one of his columns that his father "dessie" told him that MANY races are lost at the start, but still he leaves the stalls last in many races, so he has forgotten that good advice his father gave him, it is endemic now amongst jockeys who ride regularly in Britain.

which snowballed, part of the fun IS reminiscing the past glories, but inevitably it annoys some people especially those who are not as successful as others, a person on the other racing site has posted that he is now a better person because he no longer bets in small amounts and now looks down on other people on here, yet he has never attracted the venom that I have, I will still defend myself whenever and from whoever attacks me.

A remark like that started all this, a guy tells me I'm on the wrong thread and used the ffs that you used when I corrected him he SAID he would NOT poke his nose onto  another thread started by me, but I guess you may have concluded that he did NOT keep his word. I HAVE FINISHED NOW.
