Michael Appleby – Flat Trainer of the Week
The best flat trainer of the week for the first time this month is Michael Appleby. The trainer had a brilliant week over the last seven days winning top trainer of the week and managed to grab a total of 4 winners from 20 runners across Great Britain and Ireland gaining a 20 percent strike rate for his runners of the week which is the highest to date.
With this, out of his 20 runners last week all 6 of them went on to place, this is an outstanding record and equals out at a strike rate of 30 percent of his runs were in the top one, two or three depending on the runners.
Appleby is a trainer bang in form and has been brilliant on the all weather recently but this week is his first time for a long time being top of the leaderboard. He is one to keep an eye out for over the coming weeks with plenty of newcomers and a lot of frequent runners across various racecourses in the off season on the all weather.
