Profitable Courses for Flat Jockeys (Part 2)

Adam Kirby horse racing jockey
Continuing on from my recent blog about profitable courses for flat jockeys to look out for this season. 

The next jockey to come onto my radar is Robert Halvin, maybe not the youngest jockey around at 42 but still knows how to get into the winner’s enclosure. I guess it helps to have the quality horses he rides for John Gosden, but the course I will be looking at for a profit this season is Southwell

Yes of all the courses I could pick it’s little old Southwell but the stats don’t lie, over the past 3 seasons Robert’s had 30 rides with 10 wins and a 33.3 per cent win strike rate giving a 368.0 per cent win return at starting price. One thing to add, it’s only with 3-year-old horses and upwards. 

Another jockey to look out for this season is Adam Kirby (pictured), especially when riding at Haydock. Adam has been there done it and got the t-shirt. Harry Angel being one of his best successes, winning two Group 1 races including the July Cup twice. 

The stats read very well for Haydock over the past three seasons with 3-year-old horses and upwards, handicap and Group races only, he’s had 10 rides with an impressive 7 winning giving him a 70.0 per cent win strike rate and a huge 423.3 per cent win return at starting price. I will be looking out when he teams up with Clive Cox horses running up to 7 furlongs. Sean Levey rides for Champion trainer R Hannon Jr, so it’s no surprise to see him with profitable stats at Nottingham where Richard also likes a winner or two. Following the pair over the last 3 seasons would see Sean riding 7 horses with 5 winning, not to bad hey and a 71.4 per cent win strike rate would see a nice 292.1 per cent win return at starting price for your money. 

A Liverpool born jockey has to be good right? Well, bring on the old man of the weighing room, Franny Norton, I think he’s 49 but I could be wrong, anyway put him on 2 and 3-year-old horse at Epsom and then form an orderly queue at your betting shop(might have exaggerated a bit there). 

Over the past 3 seasons, good old Franny has had 13 rides with 7 winning and a 53.8 per cent win strike rate with a 289.1 per cent win return at starting price, not to be sniffed at. Last but not least for this year's profitable courses for flat jockeys is Paul Hannigan, if he turns up for a handicap ride at Wetherby it’s worth taking a second look. Over the past 2 seasons, the stats read 8 rides with 3 wins giving a 37.5 per cent win strike rate and 318.8 per cent win return at starting price, even backing for a place would give a 2.69.7 per cent each way return at starting price. I will hopefully update these stats throughout the season to see if any come good. Thanks for reading and good luck.
