    Info INTERNATIONAL STAKES H'CAP TRENDS 2014

    The Longines International Stakes is a 7F class 2 handicap which takes place at Ascot on Saturday, 26th July, on the supporting card of the King George. Trends point towards 4 or 5 year olds that are still improving and ran well at Royal Ascot, 8 of last 9 winners had run in either the Royal Hunt Cup or Buckingham Palace. One other unusual statistic is that 3 of last 4 winners were sired by Oasis Dream.



    Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years:



    Age

    3yo: 0-3-25

    4yo: 7-11-86

    5yo: 3-8-52

    6yo+: 0-8-75

    The last 10 winners of this race were aged 4 or 5

    The three winners aged 5 were New Seeker (won the race as a 3yo), Castles In The Air (won a handicap at this meeting the previous year) and Field Of Dream (placed in Royal Hunt Cup at that year’s Royal meeting).

    horses aged 6+ have a poor record, failing to win this race in past 10 years despite accounting for over 31.5% of the total runners.



    Breeding

    Oasis Dream: 1007100105 (3-0-10) has sired 3 of the last 4 winners. 2012 winner, Field Of Dream, is the only progeny of Oasis Dream entered this year.



    Weight

    horses carrying 9-7 or more: 1-2-8

    horses carrying 9-0 to 9-6: 3-6-50

    horses carrying 8-7 to 8-13: 4-9-86

    horses carrying 8-6 or less: 2-13-94

    The last 5 winners carried between 8-6 and 9-0.

    Top Weight: 2008103000 (1-2-10)

    horses carrying a penalty: 0050095410204000030800541 (2-5-25)



    Official Ratings

    horses rated 100 or higher: 4-7-63

    horses rated 93 to 99: 4-14-92

    horses rated 92 or lower: 2-9-83

    8 of 10 winners have been officially rated 95 or higher



    Recent/Past Form

    5 of 10 winners won or placed last time (4 exceptions unplaced in handicap at Royal Ascot or July Meeting)

    6 of 10 winners posted their highest RPR last time out (3 exceptions did so on second or third last start)

    9 of 10 winners posted an RPR of 100+ in last 3 outings

    10 of 10 winners ran in past 40 days

    7 of 10 winners ran in a handicap at Royal Ascot or July Meeting last time (3 exceptions did so on penultimate start)

    8 of 10 winners contested a class 2 race last time (2 exceptions ran in a class 3)

    7 of 10 winners had won a race that season (2 of 3 exceptions placed in a race worth 40K+ that season)

    9 of 10 winners had run 3 to 5 times on turf that year

    8 of 10 winners had previously won over 7F (2 exception had won over 6 and 8 furlongs)

    7 of 10 winners had won at class 2 level or higher (3 exceptions placed in a class 2 handicap)

    9 of 10 winners had won a race worth 9K+

    10 of 10 winners had contested a class 2 handicap worth over 30K that season



    Big Field Form

    8 of 10 winners had won a race with 12+ runners (2 exceptions placed in a Royal Ascot handicap with 28+ runners earlier that season)

    All 10 winners won or placed in a race with 15+ runners, clearly this is a race where you want a horse that has experienced and run well in a competitive big-field handicap.

    Buckingham Palace Stakes winner (Louis The Pious): 237900 (0-2-6)

    Trainers

    Mark Johnston (2-0-17) trained the winners 2008 & 2013, both were 4yos that had run in Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer H'cap, at Chester, the previous year.

    Clive Brittain (1-1-6) trained the 40/1 winner in 2009.

    Jamie Osbourne (1-0-2) trained the winner in 2012, his other 2 runners since 2000 were 3rd in 2003 & 5th in 2013.

    Richard Fahey (1-0-7) trained the winner in 2010.

    Kevin Ryan (0-3-11) trained the 3 places in past 10 years, while Brian Ellison (0-2-2) & David Simcock (0-2-5) have both seen 2 of their representatives make the places.



    Draw (excluding 2005 when run at Newbury)

    horses drawn 1-10: 4-10-90

    horses drawn 11-20: 1-13-90

    horses drawn 21 or higher: 4-3-34

    The last 8 winners have either been drawn low (1 to 10) or high (21 or higher).

    horses drawn 21 or higher have won 4 of last 9 at Ascot, including last 3, from less than 16% of total runners.



    Price

    No strong trends on prices but last 5 winners have gone off 18/1, 40/1, 14/1, 16/1, 25/1 & 33/1.

    Favourites (0-2-15) have failed to win any of the last 10 runnings and only 2 of the 15 (joint/co) favourites have made the places, level stakes loss of 10.00.



    Summary:

    Based on the trends from the past 10 years you are looking for a horse:

    - Aged 4 or 5
