Aidan O'Brien – Flat Trainer of the Week
The best flat trainer of the week for the first time in months is Aidan 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 7 winners from 37 runners across Great Britain and Ireland gaining a 18.92 percent strike rate for his runners of the week.
With this out of his 37 runners last week 16 of them went on to place, this is an outstanding record and equals out at a strike rate of 43.24 percent of his runs were in the top one, two or three depending on the runners.
The Ballydoyle maestro is a trainer bang in form aftr his bad spell this season and last week at Newmarket picked up some lovely winners. 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 over the rest of the flat racing calendar.
