Five-Shot Bullet Points: Paul Cole

Paul Cole has an impressive history as a trainer - Derby winner to the annual pursuit of finding talented two-year-olds - the lifeblood of any stable. Cole's fortunes have faltered with the loss of  Mrs Fitri Hay who seemingly has endless funds to follow her passion of horse racing. However, he is an astute trainer who knows his juveniles. But what makes a Paul Cole winner?
  • Cole attains no more than an average win rate on debut
  • Importantly, few debutantes win priced over 8/1
  • Second time out is the key to finding winners - fancied runners feature good win and place averages
  • Early season juveniles usually go on to win in their 2yo career
  • Group entered juveniles are worth noting
