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.

Atalanta Queen @ 4/1 BOG

…in an 11-runner, Class 6, A/W Handicap for 3yo+ over 1m on fibresand worth £2,782 to the winner…


The specialist all weather track at Southwell is a ‘marmite’ affair, horses usually struggling on it with only a handful finding it ideal.

Atalanta Queen is in the latter category: her six career starts at the Rolleston venue have ended 112931 (3/6, 50%, +67 pts!), and over this mile range she’s 131. Her most recent spin here was a course, distance, and class win eleven days ago.

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!
