Wednesday's pick goes in the...
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.
Fantasy Gladiator @ 5/1
Fantasy Gladiator has been running on the all weather tracks over the winter, and has slipped to a very attractive mark, having not won since September 2015. However, that was also the last time he had his favoured conditions, and I am very hopeful of a big run here today. He has a nice draw on the inside, and as long as he breaks reasonably well, the race will be set up for him
The following stats are applicable.
- trainer Mick Appleby has excellent course form and for the last year he is 6/45 (13.33%) for 36.38pts
- over the past five years he is 30/190 (15.79%) for 63.01pts
- jockey Silvestre De Sousa for the last 30 days is 17/71 (23.94%) for 1.35pts
- here at Nottingham, Fantasy Gladiator is 2/5 (40%) for 2.5pts
- and on today's going he is 2/6 (33.33%) for 11pts

P.S. all P/L returns quoted in the stats are to Betfair SP, as (i) I NEVER bet to ISP and neither should you and (ii) although inferior to the BOG odds we secure, BFSP is the nearest approximation I can give, so I actually expect to beat the returns quoted.
