Five-Shot Bullet Points: Mick Channon


On the gallops
Think of a two-year-old trainer, and Mick Channon comes pretty high on most punter's list. With about 100 two-year-olds at West Ilsley Stables there are always exciting youngsters on the horizon. Often noted for his success training fillies: Queen's Logic, Silca's Sister, Flashy Wings, Silca Chiave, Majestic Roi, Lahaleeb and Music Show have all proved high class performers with Pattern successes to their names. But what makes a winner for Mick Channon?
  • Juveniles feature a fair win rate on debut when priced 13/2 & less
  • However, few debutantes win when priced over 8/1
  • Channon's juveniles are best on their second start and feature good win and place statistics when priced 13/2 & less
  • Money is a good sign - juveniles heavily backed often go well
  • Group-entered juveniles are worth noting
