Stat of the Day, 20th December 2017

Tuesday’s Result :

1.00 Southwell : Mach One @ 5/2 BOG 3rd at 11/8 Slowly into stride, held up, ridden over 3f out, headway 2f out, pressing for 2nd inside final furlong, not trouble winner, kept on.

Next up is Wednesday’s…

7.40 Kempton :

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.

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!
