Tuesday’s pick was…
2.15 Brighton : Shamshon @ 11/2 BOG 3rd at 3/1 (Led chasing group in 3rd, closer and hung left over 1f out, kept on in 3rd towards finish, no chance with winner, probably unsuited by the going change from Good To Firm down to Good to Soft!)

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.
Gone Platinum @ 3/1 BOG
…in a 9-runner, Class 3, Handicap Hurdle for 4yo+ over 2m4½f on Good ground worth £6238 to the winner…
Well, I’m going to keep it really simple today, employing the old “horses for courses” adage with a 10 yr old gelding who not only won very comfortably off today’s mark at Market Rasen five days ago, but has run consistently well all year and should be suited by the conditions faced today.
Five wins and three runner-up finishes from ten efforts this year has been a superb run of form and this includes 2 wins and 2 places (2121) over hurdles, all here at Ffos Las under today’s jockey Lorcan Williams and his suitability for today’s task is demonstrated by the fact that his 5+3/10 record this year includes…
- 5+3/8 after less than 4 weeks rest (inc 2+2/4 over hrds)
- 4+3/9 under Lorcan Williams (2+2/4 over hrds)
- 4+2/6 since April (2+1/3 over hrds)
- 4+2/8 going left handed (2+2/4 over hrds)
- 4+2/8 as non-fav (2+1/3 over hrds)
- 3+2/6 on Good ground (1+1/2 over hrds)
- 3+1/4 over 2m4.5f/2m5f (1+1/2 over hrds)
- 3/4 in fields of 7-10 runners (1/1 over hrds)
- 2+2/5 here at Ffos Las (2+2/4 over hrds)
- 2+1/3 at odds of 4/1 and shorter (1+1/2 over hrds)
- 2/2 at Class 3 (1/1 over hrds)
- and 2/2 off a mark (OR) higher than 120 (1/1 over hrds)

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!
