Joseph O'Brien – Flat Trainer of the Week
The best flat trainer of the week for the first time this month is Joseph O'Brien. The Irishman had a brilliant week over the last seven days winning top trainer of the week and managed to grab a total of 3 winners from 13 runners across Great Britain and Ireland gaining a 23.08 percent strike rate for his runners of the week.
With this, out of his 13 runners last week 5 of them went on to place, this is an outstanding record and equals out at a strike rate of 38.46 percent of his runs were in the top one, two or three depending on the runners.
The Irishman is a trainer bang in form and has been brilliant all season but this week is his first time in a long time being top of the leaderboard. He is one to keep an eye out for over the coming weeks with entries in big races and a lot of frequent runners across various racecourses in the off season for both jumps and flats.
