3.50 Lingfield :

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.

  • 2/3 going left handed
  • 2/2 within 7-14 days of his last run
  • 2/2 under today’s jockey PJ McDonald

And finally, in that same 2017-19 time frame, when PJ has pitched up at a track for just one ride, he’s 16 from 52 (30.8% SR) for 48.8pts (+93.9% ROI) when sent off at 10/1 or shorter, from which…

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!
