Stat of the Day, 20th September 2019

Thursday’s pick was…

3.40 Pontefract : Gale Force Maya @ 3/1 BOG 2nd at 7/2 (Raced wide in touch, pushed along over 2f out, ridden and headway over 1f out, led approaching final furlong, headed towards finish : the second time in as many days that the winner, Lady of Aran, has done us over after her withdrawal yesterday cost us a 40% reduction in winnings!)

Friday’s pick runs in the…

5.50 Newcastle :

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.

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!
