Charlie Appleby Trainer Profile Series

Charlie Appleby is someone I have always highly rated. He joined the Godolphin team in 2013 and has many big race winners to his name, including Outstrip who landed his first G1 for him in his first year with the boys in blue taking the Breeders' cup juvenile turf race at Santa Anita, USA by half a length and earning a whopping $572.101. 

Which is not a bad start by any means for Charlie, with further success to follow with the likes of Space Age becoming his first Royal Ascot winner in 2015 by winning the King George V stakes. 

2017 saw him travel far and wide for winners including four more G1 winners in France, Australia and the USA. You would think things couldn't get much better but as with every great trainer he kept on top of his game and in 2018 was crowned champion trainer at the Dubai world cup carnival with Jungle cat and Hawkbill topping off a great night in Dubai. 

The winners kept rolling in 2018 but one was more special than most when Masar at an unbelievable 16/1 powered up the Epsom hill with William Buick on board in the famous blue silks to become the first Godolphin winner of the famous Epsom Derby and bringing with it a nice little £850.650. 

Not a bad five years for the Newmarket handler but backing every Charlie Appleby horse would be madness so after all this waffling it's time find a few gems to keep the betting bank ticking along. 

As with every trainer Charlie Appleby is no different they like certain race tracks. Nottingham is a track he likes to send out his later two-year-old horses. 

Out of the last eight bets, you would have had five winners with a 62.5 percent strike rate and 209.4 per cent win return at starting price, all running October or November on a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon. 

The star horse being Ispolini who was an 8/11 beaten favourite here on debut but managed to reach a high of 110 rating and running creditably in some decent group races. Haydock and Newbury would be another two tracks worth keeping a closer eye on when he sends his three-year-olds. 

Six wins from nine bets are not to be taken lightly, giving you a 66.7 percent win strike rate and a 218.3 win percent return at starting price from the combined tracks with all winners winning on debut or second time out. 

Undoubtedly the star of the show from these two race tracks would be Frontiersman who was beaten favourite at Goodwood on debut before making amends second time out at Newbury and reaching a rating of 117. 

So next time you are struggling to make your mind up, check these statistics for a few little pointers in the right direction. 

Good luck everyone and make sure you look out for my next trainer profile with a few statistics to keep you on top.
