Age: Winners peak at 8 years old (40%) then 20% either side of this.
OR: 60% of winners have an OR of between 170-179
Favourites and non-favourites do equally as well, but favourites do slightly better on quicker ground.
French horses have a good reputation here.
Trainers: Three trainers have dominated the last 10 years, Nicholls (50%), Henderson (30%) and Tizzard (20%)
Form: Horses must have ridden this season and at least placed in the last race. They must be distance and going winners and have at least placed at Kempton before.
Pedigree: This is skewed by the large number of multiple winners, but Sadler’s Wells pedigree is claimed by a larger number of different horses.
Odds: 80% 7/2 or below
