8.00 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.

He’s a 3 yr old gelding, who despite failing to break his duck in a dozen attempts, came very close at Epsom last time out, finishing third 26 days ago, beaten by just a length. His yard are having a decent enough “summer” with trainer Dean Ivory’s runners winning 14 of 64 (25.9% SR) handicaps over the last nine weeks for level stakes profits of 91.4pts (+169.3% ROI), from which the following are relevant today…

  • 10/29 (34.5%) for 99.73pts (+343.9%) after a 21-60 day break

Dean’s overall record in A/W handicaps here at Lingfield since 2013 stands at 23 from 108 (21.3% SR) for 55.54pts (+51.4% ROI) from runners priced at 5/2 to 10/1, including…

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!
