Friday’s Result :
Next up is Saturday’s…
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.
Virgilio @ 7/2 BOG
A Class 2, 4yo+, Handicap Chase over 2m4f on Good to Soft ground worth £46,425 to the winner.
..and an 8 yr old gelding trained by Dan Skelton, whose horses are in fine fettle right now with 9 winners and 11 placers from his 27 runners so far this month.
This 33.3% win strike rate has yielded 22.95pts profit at an ROI of 85% and with an overall place strike rate of some 74.1%, those numbers could have been even better with a bit more luck.
Of those 27 runners so far this month, 20 have been ridden by Harry Skelton, which has brought about 8 winners (40% SR) and 27.43pts profit at a return of 137.15% and today the Skeltons team up with a horse who has already won 6 of his 12 starts with another couple of placed efforts for good measure and he seems ideal for this contest today, because he is…
- 5 wins + 2 places from 11 under Harry Skelton (3+2/7 in chases)
- 6+1/10 going left handed (3+1/5 in chases)
- 6/7 at odds of 4/1 and shorter (3/4 in chases)
- 4+1/7 at 2m3f/2m4f (1+1/3 in chases)
- 3+2/7 in chases
- 6/6 as fav/jt fav (3/3 in chases)
- 4/5 in handicaps (1/1 in chases)
- 3/5 here at Aintree (1/2 in chases)
- 4/4 at Class 2 (2/2 in chases)
- 3/3 after a break of 4 months or longer (1/1 in chases)
- 1+1/2 on Good to Soft ground (both chases)

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!
