Thursday’s Runner was…
3.45 Hexham : Itstimeforapint @ 5/1 BOG 4th at 5/1 Held up last, mistake 2nd, left modest 4th 19th, ridden and weakened after 2 out.
And now we move on to Friday’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.
Nendrum @ 3/1 BOG
A Class 4, 2m0.5f handicap hurdle (4yo+) on good ground worth £4,094 to the winner…
An in-form 9yr old gelding who has finished 3121 in his last four starts, all at today’s Class 4 under today’s jockey Jamie Hamilton with three of those races (311) taking place here at Musselburgh. He was last seen 30 days ago winning here by three lengths and putting another winner on the board for trainer Sandy Thomson, who over the last two years…
…has 35 winners from 195 NH (17.95% SR) runners yielding 224.1pts profit at an ROI of 114.9% and these figures include…
- males at 35/174 (20.1%) for 245.1pts (+140.9%)
- at Class 4 : 18/97 (18.6%) for 203.6pts (+209.9%)
- over hurdles : 16/97 (16.5%) for 202.3pts (+208.5%)
- at odds of 6/5 to 5/1 : 23/73 (31.5%) for 17.5pts (+23.9%)
- over trips of 2m1f and shorter : 13/48 (27.1%) for 211.9pts (+441.5%)
- here at Musselburgh : 10/36 (27.8%) for 28.7pts (+79.8%)
- and 9yr olds are 5/16 (31.25%) for 8.56pts (+53.5%)
The above profit & respective ROI figures are admittedly skewed by a 66/1 non-handicap winner, but that doesn’t detract from some excellent strike rates and if you just took male Class 4 handicap hurdlers at odds of 6/5 to 9/1, like we have today, you’d have 6 winners from 11 (54.6% SR) for 19pts (+172.5% ROI) profit, from which…
- here at Musselburgh : 2/4 for 5.02pts
- 2m1f and shorter : 2/2 for 5.02pts
- 9 yr olds : 2/2 for 5.02pts
AND… 9 yr olds here at Musselburgh over 2m1f and shorter = 2/2 for 5.02pts, achieved by Nendrum on his two visits here with Jamie Hamilton in the saddle this year!

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!
