Last week we started our series on the best trainers in each state, but with a punting twist. Peter Moody, Mick Price and Leon Corstens were the standout Victoria trainers based on our approach of using a proportionate (target betting) plan to look at Profit on Turnover for all runners, favourites and Last Start winners. Today we’ll take a look at the top 10 in the NSW Trainer’s Premiership ranked by winners. Just like last week there were some very interesting points to note from this analysis so we’ll run through the highlights for each trainer: • Peter Snowden – very good overall strike-rate and record with favourites. • Chris Waller – won the Sydney trainer’s premiership and enjoyed an excellent record right across the board. Interestingly the market actually underestimates the Waller stable, much like the all-conquering Moody stable in Victoria. • Gai Waterhouse – mixed results for Gai with her favourites performing terribly, yet last start winners were well above the norm. • Guy Walter – his overall record was below-par, but favourites and last start winners were excellent. • Kris Lees – mediocre numbers for the Lees stable with favourites being the weakest link. • Joe Pride – sensational results for punters backing Pride and it’s quite amazing that you could simply back every one of his runners last season and come out in front. • Paul Perry – terrible season for Perry with 20% loss on turnover for all runners, yet his favourites and last start winners did well. • John O’Shea – solid winning strike-rate, but not great numbers from a punting perspective. • Brett Bellamy – mixed bag from Bellamy with a slightly better than average performance from all stable runners, but a very poor record with favourites and last start winners. • Nick Olive – excellent returns for followers of his stable, with the exception of his failure at being able to get last-start winners to repeat. Chris Waller and Joe Pride were the clear stand-outs for punters betting on New South Wales racing last season.
