8.50 Newcastle :

Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Generally, I’ll identify and share the selection in the evening before the following day’s race and I then add a detailed write-up later on that night/next morning.

Those happy to take the early price on trust can do so, whilst some might prefer to wait for my reasoning. As I fit the early service in around my family life, I can’t give an exact timing on the posts, so I suggest you follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for instant notifications of a published pick.

Oriental Relation at 6/1 BOG


Trainer James Given’s runners are 81/561 (14.4% SR) for 115.4pts (+20.6% ROI) profit in A/W handicaps since the start of 2011, which is decent enough, but closer inspection of those figures throws out the following snippets of relevant data…

  • those with a run in the past 30 days are 72/450 (16%) for 153.4pts (+34.1%)
  • males are 70/72 (16.7%) for 136.4pts (+32.5%)
  • those in the top 3 of the market are 52/204 (25.5%) for 19.5% (+9.5%)
  • those ridden by Tom Eaves are 20/139 (14.4$ for 28pts (+20.2%)
  • those racing over this 5f minimum trip are 22/1212 (18.2%) for 75pts (+62%)
  • and 5 yr olds are 13/94 (13.8%) for 46pts (+49%)

Puting the more prevalent factors together tells us that males who are in the top 3 of the market and ran in the previous 30 days are 46 from 170 (27.1% SR) for 34.1pts (+20.1% ROI) profit, of which…

  • 5f runners are 13/42 (31%) for 8.4pts (+20%)
  • Tom Eaves is 13/40 (32.5%) for 21.3pts (+53.3%)
  • and 5 yr olds are 6/28 (21.4%) for 4.25pts (+15.2%)

All of which suggest that any James Given runner fitting the above stats is worth backing and I could really just stop there, but sometimes I just can’t help myself, so I then thought I’d check the horse out a little more closely and here’s what I found…
