The striking feature of racing at Newmarket yesterday was the strong tail wind coupled with decent ground which created an ideal cocktail of conditions for front runners. Each day on the Smartersig web site there are pace figures for the first four home in each race from the previous days racing. Excuse the formatting below, on the web site they are presented in a little more user friendly fashion with colour coding on the actual pace figure. The pace figure in the race for each horse is the last figure. Firmdecisions posted a 2 whilst Kaktosi posted a 3.2. In other words Kakatosi led whilst the winner was prominent. The average figures across all first four home in all Newmarket races is shown at the bottom as 2.19. Needless to say this is quite high. The next best from any other meeting was 1.58. The figures certainly endorse the theory that yesterdays conditions suited prominent runners at Newmarket. What will be of greater interest is how the horses that ran prominently fair in their next run. It will be easy for most punters to forget the favourable conditions they met at Newmarket and it could well be that most of them will be overbet. If there is interest in this blog I will report back on how the runners faired next time out.
