Thursday’s pick goes in the…
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.
Ninety Years Young @ 3/1 BOG
Fairly simple and straightforward with this one (I hope!), as this 2 yr old colt comes here off the back of a win at this venue under today’s jockey a week ago. He scored by three parts of a length ridden out over 6f and he should be suited by the drop back in trip this time.
He’s one of only two past winners in a field of 12 whose combined record is a paltry 3/64 and he’s the only one to have won on this track prior to this contest. Since the venue re-opened, David Elsworth’s runners are 4/15 (26.7% SR) for 2.75pts (+18.3% ROI) with 10 male runners providing all the winners and those priced at 9/2 and shorter are 4/6 (66.7% SR) for 11.75pts (+195.8% ROI)
In addition to the above, David Elsworth’s LTO winners are 16/54 (29.6% SR) for 18.8pts (+34.8% ROI) since the start of 2015 and these 54 runners themselves are…
- 14/39 (35.9%) for 26.56pts (+68.1%) in handicaps
- 12/36 (33.3%) for 21.45pts (+59.6%) from males
- 11/30 (36.7%) for 11.47pts (+38.2%) 6-20 days after their last outing
- and 7 from 13 (53.9%) for 11.73pts (+90.2%) on the All-Weather
More generally, male handicappers who won LTO in the previous 45 days are 9/22 (40.9% SR) for 24.8pts (+112.7% ROI), with those priced shorter than 7/1 winning 8 of 14 (57.1%) for 20.87pts (+149%)
…pointing to…a 1pt win bet on Ninety Years Young at 3/1 BOG, from Bet365 (preferred) and BetVictor, whilst there was plenty of 11/4 BOG elsewhere at 6.10pm on Wednesday. To see your preferred bookies’ odds, simply…
