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.
Oliver Hardy @ 4/1 or 7/2 BOG
…in an 11-runner, Class 6 Flat Handicap for 3yo over 1m4f on Good ground worth £3105 to the winner…
This 3 yr old colt was successful last time out, 15 days ago, here at Brighton over 1m2f under today’s jockey Rossa Ryan in a win that took the rider’s record in handicaps at this venue to 8 from 29 (27.6% SR) for 25.8pts (+89%) since the start of last season and those include…
- 5 wins from 8 (62.5%) for 30.5pts (+381.7%) since losing his claim
- 5/15 (33.3%) for 23.5pts (+156.9%) on male runners
- 5/19 (26.3%) for 22.4pts (+117.6%) at Class 6
- 4/8 (50%) for 16.8pts (+210%) in June
- and 4/10 (40%) for 14.77pts (+147.7%) on 3 yr olds
And whilst those 29 rides only include one for trainer Paul Cole (Oliver Hardy‘s LTO win, of course), Rossa is 3 from 9 (33.3% SR) for 36.53pts (+405.9% ROI) on Paul’s handicappers since the start of 2018.
Meanwhile Paul Cole himself is no slouch at this track, with decent returns for a long number of years now, but we’ll stick to more relevant/recent results to analyse, as his runners sent off here at 8/1 or shorter are 11 from 29 (37.9% SR) for 24.3pts (+83.8% ROI) over the last 5 (inc. this one) seasons, from which…
- males are 10/25 (40%) for 22.7pts (+90.8%)
- 2-4 yr olds are 9/21 (42.9%) for 24.1pts (+114.7%)
- those competing for less than £4,000 are 7/18 (38.9%) for 19.7pts (+109.3%)
- at Class 6 : 2/4 950%) for 9pts (+225%)
- and in June : 2/5 (40%) for 6.94pts (+138.7%)
…whilst 2-4 yr old males competing for less than £4k are 5 from 11 (45.5% SR) for 18.4pts (+167.6% ROI) including, of course, Oliver Hardy‘s win last time out…

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!
