4.40 Salisbury :

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.

…in a 6-runner, Class 4, Flat Handicap for 3yo+ over 1m2f on Good To Soft ground worth £5,693 to the winner…


Here we have a 6 yr old gelding, just knocking on the door for a winner having been a runner-up in each of his last three starts : a feat not as rare as you’d expect, but more on that shortly. Two of those last three efforts were at Class 3 and he now takes a drop in class to run off the same mark here at a track where he’s 1 from 1, whilst overall he has a win and two places from four runs over today’s trip.

His yard is in decent enough form right now with 2 winners and 2 placers from 6 over the past week, whilst trainer Amanda Perrett’s record in Class 4/5 handicaps here at Salisbury over the last six seasons stands at 8 from 21 (38.1% SR) from runners sent off at 8/1 and shorter generating 17.8pts profit at a healthy ROI of 84.7% and these include of relevance today…

  • 6/14 (42.9%) for 13.3pts (+95.1%) at Class 4
  • 6/13 (46.2%) for 16.7pts (+128.4%) from horses rested for less than three weeks
  • 4/9 (44.4%) for 9.1pts (+101.1%) over the last three seasons
  • 4/9 (44.4%) for 8.2pts (+91%) over trips of 1m2f to 1m4f
  • and 2/3 (66.6%) for 5.2pts (+174.3%) in September…

…whilst over the last three seasons, Class 4 runners with less than three weeks rest are 3 from 5 (60% SR) for 5.87pts (+117.3% ROI) including 1 from 1 in September.

Now, I said that runners finishing second three times on the bounce wasn’t as rare as you might expect, well you might not be surprised that I’ve a micro-system based around these runners that I’ve unimaginatively entitled “2-2-2 horses”.  The basic premise of the system is…

…UK handicaps / Class 2-5 / odds of 11-10 to 11-1 / form line of 222 / beaten by a neck to 10 lengths LTO / last ran 6-45 days ago…

Since the start of 2016, there have been 398 such runners, from which there are 91 winners (22.9% SR) generating profits of 78.6pts (+19.7% ROI), including the following at play today….

  • 40/151 (26.5%) for 38.6pts (+25.5%) on the Flat
  • 27/109 (24.8%) for 40.2pts (+36.9%) were beaten by 3 to 10 lengths LTO
  • 23/83 (27.7%) for 37.6pts (+45.4%) ran 11-15 days earlier
  • 14/61 (23%) for 44.6pts (+73.1%) on Good to Soft
  • and 17 from 45 (37.8%) for 45.3pts (+100.7%) dropping down a class

…from which Flat runners beaten by 3 to 10 lengths LTO are 10 from 28 (35.7% SR) for 32.6pts (+116.4% ROI)…

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!
