To some extent it has sneaked up on us, but figures show the Dream Team of John Size and Douglas Whyte (both pictured) is now enjoying the kind of dominance that everyone always expected from them in tandem. While Size may never perform as well as he did in his debut season, winning with 58 of just 291 starters, this season is shaping as his next most efficient on percentages. At this point, he stands at 60 wins from 328 runners or 18.3 per cent winners to runners, and a long way clear of his second, third and fourth championship wins, where 14.3 per cent was his best hit rate. Barring something extraordinary from reigning champion Caspar Fownes, Size is going to win the title with fewer runners than any trainer since that fabulous debut in 2001-02. But Whyte's performance, soon to take him past 1,000 winners in the coming days, is also lining up to his best championship win, too. The South African has already taken 82 races, winning almost 20 per cent of his rides even though he has missed 13 days through suspension and missed a meeting by going to Japan for the Super Jockey series. Whyte is on target to win more than 100 races for a third time but his suspended days in 2003-04, when he first topped the century, tallied just three and in 2005-06, when he set the 114 win record, there were only two. Sure, the number of races increases year by year but Whyte's suspensions this term have wiped that factor out, and if the Demon continues to score at his present pace, yet to be run, he will still set a new record.
