Aidan O'Brien – Flat Trainer of the Week
The best flat trainer of the week for the second time this month 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 9 winners from 32 runners across Great Britain and Ireland gaining a 28.13 percent strike rate for his runners of the week.
With this out of his 32 runners last week 20 of them went on to place, this is an outstanding record and equals out at a strike rate of 62.50 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 won the Group 1 Futurity Trophy Stakes at Doncaster this weekend with Magna Grecia. 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.
