In this period main trends are :

  • 6 out of 7 won last time out
  • All 7 ran between 22 and 49 days beforehand
  • Fate of favourite: 2111211
  • Paul Nicholls has trained 3 of the 7 winners
  • 5 out of 7 won by 8 year olds
  • The top rated horse has won the last 6 renewals

Sprinter Sacre is a best price of 10/11 to win the 2015 renewal with Paddy Power. With some doubt persisting in his particaption as Nicky Henderson monitors the going some punters may prefer the 11/4 offered on Dodging Bullets by Boylesports.
