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.
Dr Doro @ 7/2 BOG
In a 14-runner, Class 6 Handicap for 3yo+ over 6f on Good ground worth £3105 to the winner…
This 5 yr old mare was a winner when last seen 43 days ago. That was a Class 5 contest over 5f and she needed pretty much every last yard of the trip, staying on strongly to grab the win in the closing stages to win by a neck, suggesting that an extra furlong today might help her, as indeed should a drop in class.
To date, she has won 2 of 3 Flat handicaps, she’s 2 from 3 on Good ground and 2 from 2 in Flat handicaps on Good ground, whilst trainer Ian Williams’ LTO winners sent back out at odds of 1/2 to 11/2 are 123/373 (33% SR) for 39.5pts (+10.6% ROI) over the last ten years, including of relevance today…
- 5/6 yr olds : 59/165 (35.8%) for 38.8pts (+23.5%)
- on Good ground : 39/104 (37.5%) for 38.2pts (+36.7%)
- on the Flat : 33/97 (34%) for 29.3pts (+30.2%)
- at Class 6 : 29/73 (39.7%) for 20.5pts (+28.1%)
- and over trips of 5 to 7 furlongs : 13/41 (31.7%) for 13.2pts (+32.2%)
Jim Crowley is in the saddle today and since 2008, he is 16 from 93 (17.2% SR) for 58.1pts (+62.5% ROI) on horses trained by Ian Williams, including of note today…
- in handicaps : 15/71 (21.1%) for 75pts (+105.7%)
- on the Flat : 11/61 (18%) for 41.1pts (+67.3%)
- at odds of 7/1 and shorter : 13/42 (31%) for 30.8pts (+73.3%)
- at 21 to 45 days since the horse’s last run : 8/32 (25%) for 74.6pts (+233.2%)
- and since the start of 2016 : 9/25 (36%) for 34.25pts (+137%)
…AND…on Flat handicappers priced at 7/1 and shorter : 9/19 (47.4% SR) for 32.5pts (+171.3% ROI), with a 7 from 8 record (87.5%) producing 29.47pts (+368.3%) over the last two seasons…

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!
