7.55 Doncaster :

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.

Waterfront @ 4/1 BOG

…in a 6-runner, Class 5, Flat Handicap for 3yo over 1m2f on good to firm ground worth £3429 to the winner…


This three-year-old son of Cape Cross is making his handicap debut here for a trainer who excels in such circumstances. Simon Crisford, once Godolphin’s main media mouthpiece – and pretty hands on behind the scenes, has forged a solid career in the training ranks. His overall annual strike rate is around 20%, but when running a horse first time in a handicap that rose to 27.7% in the last two years (18/65, +11.24, A/E 1.32, IV 2.82).

Crisford has been in excellent recent form, too, his three winners from ten in the past fortnight forming part of a more impressive six from 17 in handicaps in the past 30 days (35.3%, +9.10, A/E 1.84, IV 3.34)

Crisford teams up with veteran French jockey Gerald Mosse, a man enjoying a wonderful renaissance here in Blighty these last couple of seasons, for only the second time – the other being aboard a 33/1 no hoper back in 2017.

Mosse rides Doncaster well and has two wins from eleven spins at the track in the last year (27.3%, +3.00, A/E 1.74, IV 1.6).

It’s a tricky race on a very tricky day, but there is enough to justify a crack…

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!
