Key Stats For Chepstow on the 27th December.

Tom O'Brien

Nothing wrong with a few statistics to try and help the Christmas period (and the odd day without racing). We started with Kempton on Boxing Day where we pinpointed plenty of winners including Mister Fisher at 9/2 and Verdana Blue at 15/2 so we thought, why not try the same thing at Chepstow on Welsh Grand National day? Back in to the databases we have compiled another list of “Number Ones” for you, focusing on trainers, jockeys, sires and favourites once again. Don’t forget you can find our full set of tips here as always.

Trainer To Watch – Chepstow Chases

Philip Hobbs is the man to side with here thanks to eight winners from thirty-two runners for a 25% strike rate and a profit of £25.50 in the last ten years. Sadly, he seems likely to be without a runner this year and we will focus our attentions on Venetia Williams (22.73% strike rate and +£6.95) who seems more likely to be represented.

Trainer To Watch – Chepstow Hurdles

Nick Williams trains down in Devon but has done particularly well here over the years with three winners from just the ten runners (30% strike rate and +£44.50 to £1 stakes). Sadly his runners haven’t made it to race day for various reasons, but Peter Bowen took second place with a profit of £6.00 and a strike rate of 12.50%, he has a few runners to keep us interested.

Jockey To Watch

Not a great deal to learn or money to make from following any of the jockeys here, but Charlie Poste tops the list with two winners from twelve runners (16.67%) and a profit of just the £10.00. Sadly he has no rides this year and none for “runner-up” Richard Johnson (26.19% success rate and +£8.55) either. This leads us to Tom O’Brien (11.76% strike rate and +£8.00) as our jockey of choice.

Chepstow Favourites record for the 27/12/18

Once again there is money to be made from backing the jolly at Chepstow in December with thirty-five winners from a hundred and four runners for a strike rate of 33.65% and better still, a profit of £12.13.

Chepstow – Sire To Watch

Last but most certainly not least as Robin Des Champs provided us with the best profit figure of the entire list. Twelve runners for three winners (25.00%) and a profit to £1 stakes of £61.50 – what a shame his one runner hasn’t been declared overnight this year. Cadoudal came second but Westerner was the next with a runner and as he makes a level stakes loss, it’s time to give this category a miss!


Same as Kempton on Boxing Day, past performance doesn’t guarantee anything for the future but we did alright yesterday and hopefully can do so again here. If you want a closer look at the runners and the opposition to those mentioned, have a look at our racecards page.
