Thursday’s pick goes in the…

1.55 Kelso :

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.

Spanish Fleet @ 10/3 BOG


A pretty simple one this time with a 9 yr old gelding in good form, knocking on the door with three successive runner-up finishes. Ran here at Kelso over 1f shorter LTO 32 days ago on heavy ground at a higher grade and was staying on well, so I’m confident the extra furlong allied to a drop in class will finally get him back over the line.

He’s trained by George Bewley, whose chasers are 17/89 (19.1% SR) for 20.2pts (+22.7% ROI) since the start of 2014, with all 17 winners coming from 84 (20.2% SR) handicap contests for profits of 25.2pts at an ROI of 30%.

And, of those 84 handicappers…

  • males are 17/78 (21.8%) for 31.2pts (+40%)
  • those who ran in the last 90 days are 15/71 (21.1%) for 27.4pts (+38.6%)
  • those priced at 8/1 and shorter are 15/57 (26.3%) for 26.5pts (+46.5%)
  • on soft/heavy ground : 5/25 (20%) for 7.17pts (+28.7%)
  • those dropping down a grade are 6/20 (30%) for 21.5pts (+107.5%)
  • those ridden by Brian Hughes are 4/14 (28.6%) for 2.6pts (+18.6%)
  • and those up in trip by 1/1.5 furlongs are 5/9 (55/6%) for 22.4pts (+248.7%)

AND…males priced at 8/1 and shorter within 90 days of their last run are 13/46 (28.3% SR) for 26.7pts (+58% ROI)

…pointing to…a 1pt win bet on Spanish Fleet @ 10/3 BOG which was widely available at 5.55pm on Wednesday, whilst those lucky/quick enough to get on with Betbright can/could get 7/2 BOG. To see what your preferred bookie is offering, simply…
