Wednesday’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.
Regal Mirage @ 11/4 BOG
Having shown very little in 3 maidens at 7f/1m, the step up to handicap racing over longer trips seems to have worked its magic (or perhaps that was the plan all along?).
Either way, this 3 yr old gelding has now finished 31111 in five handicap starts, all at 9f and beyond and whilst it might well look an easy/lazy pick, I do believe he’s got every chance based on his suitability to the task ahead.
In handicaps, he has 4 wins and a place from 5 starts, all at 1m1f and beyond and all in fields of 8-14 runners, and based on what faces him here, he is…
- 4/4 after a break of less than 30 days
- 3/4 in fields of 8-11 runners
- 3/3 when priced at 4/1 or shorter
- 2/3 when ridden by David Allan
- 2/2 at 1m3f/1m4f
- 2/2 at Class 5
- 2/2 on Good ground
- 2/2 going right handed
- and 2/2 when sent off as favourite

REMINDER: THERE IS NO STAT OF THE DAY ON SUNDAYS
P.S. all P/L returns quoted in the stats above are to Betfair SP, as I NEVER bet to ISP and neither should you. I always use BOG bookies for SotD, wherever possible, but I use BFSP for the stats as it is the nearest approximation I can give, so I actually expect to beat the returns I use to support my picks. If that’s unclear, please ask!
