Keeping track of horses that ran strong closing sectionals at their last start can be time very well spent. Below are some of the winners from the last seven days that had run home in fast sectionals at their most recent start. Unfortunately they don’t all win next up, but if they are stepping up in distance or ran home covering extra ground, that can be an extra tick in the box. Maybe they ran home in the slower ground or were first or second up and are going to be close to peaking next up.
With the fastest closing sectionals over the last 800m, 600m , 400m and 200m now highlighted in the results of every race, it makes it so much easier to find the faster ones and go back and view the video to get a good feel for how it ran home.
