Lincoln Handicap Stats

We sent these out to full members earlier in the week
to assist any who fancied a bit of an ante post dabble on the Lincoln Handicap.

I’d describe these as “profile of the race” style stats or “major race trends”.

Knowing form traits that past winners exhibited or form traits
that produced mainly past losers is an obvious useful tool to have
when short listing contenders for a possible bet this year.

And if you want one point of my tuppence worth of general
good advice to using such major race trends that may be ..

Don’t fall into the trap of looking for the horse with
the most positive form trait ticks as the only possible bet.

In the long run you are after value.

A Form tick perfection horse can be everyone’s
obvious choice and too short a price.

Be happy to accept a degree of imperfection
when you feel it compensated for by odds.
