As part of this coverage there will be a Wizard Daily Report on Melbourne Cup favourites, also made available on Sunday.
Wizard Research Australian trainers analysed (Western Australia)
In this series of articles, we report on the best performing trainers in Australia - on metropolitan, provincial, and country tracks. Many of the names will be familiar to you, but there are others who are just as successful (in terms of strike rate) who simply fly under the radar.
Today we look at the top trainers on Western Australian racetracks, in terms of race wins, for the 2022-2023 racing season.
In Western Australia 10 of the top 20 metropolitan trainers are also among the top twenty provincial area trainers. This number is lower than in the other states.
In Western Australia there was no runaway leader in the 2022-2023 table, unlike in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland where one stable dominated the metropolitan results. There was insufficient data on WA country racing to provide meaningful results and so the coverage has been limited to those stables with 10 or more winners for the season.
With respect to individual WA trainers, the Daniel and Ben Pearce stable does well with horses that are having their third or more run from a spell and are starting at odds between $2.00 and $5.90, but they need to be firmers. These runners recorded a strike rate close to 40%. Dan Morton is also interesting. When Wizard Plus has flagged a significant jockey engagement in the Wjktr column (shown in both the Wizard Plus Panel and Wizard Watch report) his strike rate has been around 30%; importantly the key odds range for these runners is the longer $6.00 to $9.90 range, and this has meant a 100% profit on turnover on these runners. These Dan Morton runners dont have to firm in the market to meet his Special Situation conditions.
