Horse Racing Trends: Saturday 20th April 2019

Mister Fisher wins the Supreme Trial Rossington Main Novice Hurdle at Haydock

It’s been a busy week for the ITV Racing cameras, but there is no let-up for them this weekend as they are at Musselburgh and Haydock to take in seven races across the two venues.

The Scottish Sprint Cup is the main event at Musselburgh – a race that eleven of the last fifteen winners carried 9st 1lb or less in.

At Haydock, it’s their Challenger Series Final day over the jumps with some competitive handicap contests, while we’ve also got Newton Abbot and Carlisle racing for National Hunt fans.

Kempton stages an all-weather afternoon fixture too, while it’s also the start of the main evening racing season with Brighton and Nottingham doing the honours.

As always, to help you through the cards we’ve picked some quickfire standout stats and trends that are certainly worth paying attention too.

Plus, you can get more help finding the winner for all this Saturday’s races on our Racing Tips page.
