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.
Chica Buena @ 4/1 BOG
…in a 10-runner, Class 2, Handicap Hurdle for 4yo+ over 1m7½f on Good ground worth £19494 to the winner…
Well, as it’s New Year’s Eve/Day depending on when/if you’re reading this, I’m going to keep it brief as we’ve all more important things to do!
So, we have an in-form now 4yr old filly who has won four races on the bounce since finishing as a runner up in a grade 3 event in Ireland last year, including winning a Listed event by some 23 lengths at Aintree last time out 24 days ago.
That win took her record for her new trainer to 3 from 3 and today’s jockey Brian Hughes was on board for all three rides.
And that new trainer?
…is Keith Dalgleish, whose hurdlers priced at 10/1 and shorter are 9 from 29 (31% SR) for 11.7pts (+40.3% ROI) profit, including of relevance today…
- on Good ground : 5/14 (35.7%) for 7.57pts (+54.1%)
- in handicaps : 4/14 (28.6%) for 8.95pts (+64%)
- in December/January : 4/12 (33.3%) for 16.91pts (+140.9%)
- 3/4 yr olds are 4/10 (40%) for 18.3pts (+183%)
- 16-45 dslr : 6/15 (40%) for 15.1pts (+100.7%)

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!
