Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle Trends

Before the festival it is always important to carefully research the races before having a bet in them. One way of doing this is to look at the key trends from the race.

@Cameron3012 has compiled the following trends to help pick this years Fred Winter Juvenile winners!



Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle Trends 2017: 

  • Last 8/12 winners had not won over hurdles until their 3rd run over them
  • 9/12 ran in previous 25 days + 2 within 37 days  (last year’s winner had been off for 133 days)
  • 7/12 were French imports or French bred (2 of the first 4 were Fr bred in 2014 and 3 of the first 4 were FR bred in 2015 and first 4 home were FR bred in 2016)
  • 5/12 were winners last time out (4 of the other 6 ran in a G1 or G2 LTO)

  • 3/9 had won at Sandown previously
  • Pipe has a good record (1 win, 2 seconds and 1 third in 8 years)
  • Nicholls also does very well in this (even with his second strings)
