International Stakes Position Map Preview: Snow overpriced
Nic Doggett previews Wednesday's Juddmonte International Stakes using Timeform's unique Early Position Maps, and recommends backing a 14/1 chance each-way.
In all but one of the five renewals of the Juddmonte International since Frankel’s win in 2012, it has paid to race fairly prominently, with three of the five winners recording an EPF of 2 en-route to landing the ten-furlong Group 1 prize. The Early Position Map below suggests that, while there are no out-and-out front-runners in Wednesday’s Juddmonte International, a fairly strong tempo is still likely due to the presence of several horses who like to race prominently.
That will be good news for the likes of regular hold-up performers Poet’s Word and the supplemented Thundering Blue, but there are several legitimate reasons to look a little beyond the data here.
